Default Has anyone here ever tried Formula 82M?

It is topical Minoxidil with some other ingredinets for absortion purposes. I have been using it for abou 2.5 weeks and I'm actually starting to see little hairs on my head. HOwever I hear that MInoxidil will a lot of the times grow thins wipsy hairs that never to mature.

What are your thoughts?

There are a lot of minoxidil-based products and while I am not familiar with this particular product, they are allowed to make the same claims as Rogaine given that it contains the same active ingredient. That said, whether or not these other ingredients truly help the minoxidil absorb into the scalp in any superior way, I really can't say. That said, many products containing minoxidil jack the price up exceptionally high making claims that it is superior in someway when in reality, there's no actual scientific proof that the other ingredients do anything for the products. That said, this particular product does include minoxidil, so there is clearly the same possibility of success as there is with taking generic minoxidil of the same percentage. Which minoxidil product you use is up to you and I am glad to hear that you are experiencing some hair regrowth.
