Minoxidil helps to promote hair regrowth in 4 ways:

Minaturised hair follicles

Reverses the miniaturisation of follicles.

increased blood flow around follicles

Increases blood flow around follicles.

stimulate follicle movement to growth phase

Stimulates follicle movement to growth phase.

growth phase extended

Extends each follicles growth phase.

Science behind minoxidil

The mechanism by which minoxidil stimulates hair growth is not fully understood, but minoxidil can reverse the hair loss process of androgenetic alopecia by the following means:

  • Increase the diameter of the hair shaft.
  • Stimulate anagen growth.
  • Prolong the anagen phase.
  • Stimulate anagen recovery from the telogen phase.

How does minoxidil help?

Minoxidil is clinically proven to help stop and even reverse hereditary hair loss, by reactivating your inactive hair follicles.


The hair growth cycle

Hair grows in cycles and each growth cycle includes a growth phase, a transitional phase and a resting phase. In hereditary hair loss, owing to a change in hormones, the hair follicle shrinks and the growth cycle is shortened.

How does hair loss happen?

Each hair growth cycle produces a shorter, finer, much less visible hair. In time, a few follicles will even be destroyed and fail to grow hair. The most common cause of hair loss in men and women is androgenic alopecia (AGA). Genetics, hormones and age all play a part in this condition. In AGA, the hair follicle shrinks.
