Do you think these claims are true?
according to regrowhair.com:
“There is still a question as to whether hair that was already there, meaning hair that had not thinned previous to using minoxidil, becomes dependant on the drug. Many speculate that the surrounding hair can, indeed, become dependant on minoxidil, thus discontinuing its use can lead to harming that hair as well as any hair grown as a result of application.”
I’m thinking about minoxidil but don’t want to damage “good hair” in the process. Thanks for your time!
Minoxidil will not benefit (or impact) normal non-balding hair, so if you are treating an area where thinning is occurring, the normal hair around the balding area will not be affected by this drug. Minoxidil can postpone hair loss in the hair follicles that are miniaturized. Discontinuing minoxidil (Rogaine) may cause accelerated loss of those hairs which are miniaturized.
