Minoxidil – more popularly known as Rogaine – is a hair loss product used by thousands worldwide. Due to its rate of absorption, however, its use is limited to liquid and foam formulations and this can make it difficult to use on a daily basis.
And that's why HairyFy created the new Minoxidil & Caffeine Shampoo to make it easy to use it in a daily possess.
To answer your Question; Dose Minoxidil Shampoo works? Yes it works, Some other clinics and website will say it can't work because the observation of the minoxidil thru the scalp, this is kind of true but in our HairyFy Shampoo formulation we advice to use it for 2 mins before you rinse it and typically the minoxidil will take less then 1 min to observe in the scalp.
While minoxidil has grown in popularity as a hair loss treatment, it’s actually an ingredient that was previously used for a very different purpose.
Minoxidil was originally developed in the late 1950s as a treatment for ulcers. While shown to not be effective, it was found to be a vasodilator, and was later released in 1979 as a drug to treat hypertension (high blood pressure).
As trials were underway on minoxidil, it soon became obvious that the drug was also effective in growing new hair.
While doctors began to prescribe the hypertension medication (under the brand name of Loniten) to their balding patients, minoxidil did eventually become approved for use as a hair loss treatment.
It was branded under the name of Rogaine, and official use began in 1988.
As mentioned, minoxidil is a vasodilator. This plays a significant role in its hair-growing properties. Let’s take a look.
Your hair follicles are organs, and as such they’re part of a larger system. One component of this system are capillaries – these are tiny blood vessels that deliver nutrients and oxygen to the follicle, and also remove buildup (such as DHT) and waste.
When you suffer from Male-Pattern Baldness (MPB), a process occurs known as hair miniaturization. This happens when DHT (a hormone) causes irritation to the hair follicle, leading to inflammation.
As the follicle becomes inflamed, the hair coming from the follicle has very little room to grow. Eventually, the hairs being produced become smaller and smaller, and this leads to balding (permanent, if not treated).
But what does this have to do with capillaries and, more importantly, minoxidil?
As the hair follicle shrinks (both from DHT-induced inflammation and hair loss), the capillary restricts. This is because inflammation is a system-wide occurrence.
With less nutrients and oxygen now being delivered, the follicle continues to shrink.
Where minoxidil comes in is in its capillary-widening abilities. As a vasodilator, minoxidil works by relaxing the smooth muscle cells within the walls of the capillaries. This means that proper delivery of vital nutrients and oxygen can restart, and the hair follicle can once again begin to produce new hair.
As an aside, minoxidil may also prolong the anagen phase of hair growth. This is purely speculation, however, and there is yet to be any scientific proof to back this claim.
