Minoxidil

Minoxidil 2% and 5%: Minoxidil is a lotion you apply directly on the affected areas of the scalp. You should apply 1 ml ever 12 hours if you want to obtain beneficial results. This is a lifetime treatment. If you quit it, then you lose the hair you recovered. It costs around $15 to $20 a month, depending on the product concentration, brand and the country you buy it in. The worst thing about this product is the risk of the side effects, such as hair growth in your face and your body, blurry vision or other sight-related complications, chest pain, decreased sexual desire, tachycardia, shortness of breath, numbness of your feet or your face, swelling of your face, hands, feet or legs and rapid weight gain, among others.
