A Magical Touch to Your Hair: Minoxidil

Do you spend hours in front of a mirror for just to style your hair? Well, you are not the only one since hair is our main accessory when it comes having the perfect look. That’s why people, mostly women, spend most of their times at hairdressers. It should be known that hair has always been important, not only in modern times. That was our common concern with our ancestors. Throughout history, people have used the style of their hair to communicate messages about their health, wealth and status, frequently enhancing it with dyes, extensions, wigs and decorations, and today, a good head of hair is associated with feminine beauty and male virility. Like I said, we are in this together mate, and we have a common enemy: hair loss.

Hair loss has been a nightmare for both men and women, but we must admit that men are unluckier. Generally, people begin noticing signs of hair loss in their 30s and 40s. More significant hair loss often happens when people reach their 60s and beyond. It has been searched for so many years, and scientists have come up with some reasons of losing hair. These reasons particularly are, family history (heredity), hormonal changes and medical conditions, medications and supplements, radiation therapy to the head, a stressful event or life, hairstyles and treatments. But scientists have not only found out the reasons of it, but also suggested some solutions. One of them is Minoxidil. If you have never heard of it, let us enlighten you.

Minoxidil first emerged in the late 1950s by the Upjohn Company to treat ulcers, and it was a disappointment since it did not cure it. However, it had a surprising effect of widening blood vessels. The studies resulted the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to approve Minoxidil tablets as a treatment for high blood pressure in 1979. In time, scientists noticed that some of the patients, which were part of the further studies, were reporting unexpected hair growth. Soon after, scientists found out making Minoxidil into a liquid and applying it directly to the scalp boosted hair growth. The doctors were widely prescribing Minoxidil to their balding patients by the 1980s. Then, in 1988, the FDA approved Minoxidil as a treatment for hair loss.

Even though Minoxidil doesn't technically stop hair loss, it does support hair growth. When minoxidil is applied to the scalp, blood vessels carry more oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles, which promotes hair growth. Mystery revealed, but where can we find this magical medication? Basically, Minoxidil comes in two forms. It can be prescribed by a healthcare professional, or a topical application is available over the counter. You can even order it online, but you must be cautious, and should not order from a random site. You do not want to lose what you have when your aim is to grow them back, right?
