This is what makes laboratory technicians and researchers try to use this treatment as a solution sprayed on the affected scalp areas, and then observed hair growth in the treated areas, and they vary from case to another, This depends on the existing balding area.
How Minoxidil works ( Propecia and Minoxidil ):
Minoxidil is based on increasing the growth phase of the hair. This is what makes the follicle large-diameter and thick and helps to increase the length of a healthy.
