I’m trying a radical approach to see if it will work – minoxidil. I don’t suffer from female pattern baldness, but my hair isn’t as full as it used to be. Based on preliminary research, I suspect that minoxidil will trigger growth and lengthen the growth phase. Against label advice, I am using the full 5% strength intended for men. So far I haven’t noticed beard growth or anything, but I’ve only been using it three days. Gotta use it every single day x 2 to make the magic happen, and apparently it takes time (90 days) to see results. I bought the foam from Costco. Barring any intolerable side-effects, I plan to use the full contents of the package and then reassess. This experiment is a long-term commitment. The product must make contact with the scalp to work effectively. Minoxidil is a vasodilator, so it kinda fucks you up for a few minutes, but the feeling quickly passes.
