Minoxidil Hair Loss



Hi there,

I started using Kirkland 5% Minoxidil last week and have noticed that I have hair loss since then. Will this subside or not? Also I find it a bit itchy when first applied. I notice there are a few similar posts with recommendations for Rogaine foam?

I use this along with American Crew Trichology shampoo, saw palmetto and laser therapy.

Is there any other products you can recommend to me or think are better that what I am using?





I would appreciate also if you read my hair loss story on my profile to see if you have any recommendations!!

Minoxidil is almost always associated with an initial shedding phase, which can last up to the first 3-4 months of treatment. After the accelerated shedding phase has subsided, you should see thick regrowth and restoration of hair previously lost. It's usually recommended that patients use the medication (in the absence of serious side effects) for 6-12 months before evaluating its effectiveness.
