minoxidil 5% w/w
Minoxidil is a potassium channel agonist and it serves as a powerful hair-growth stimulant. Topical application of minoxidil is highly helpful in the treatment of androgenic alopecia. Minoxidil promotes hair growth by prolonging the anagen phase of the hair growth cycle. It increases the follicular size, which results in the thicker hair shaft. Its anti-apoptotic properties are helpful in the survival of the hair cells or the human dermal papillary cells (DPCs).
At the follicular level, minoxidil is helpful in direct stimulation of hair follicle epithelial growth by increasing cutaneous blood flow, which is crucial for the hair growth. Minoxidil is also observed to stimulate the resting hair follicles.
Hair and scalp should be dry before the application. Use any one of the two applicators available for application.
