Very interesting, so you’ve noticed the texture has changed? I guess if your hair is thicker, it will cover more scalp which is great. Have you noticed any side effects?

Interesting study. Thanks for sharing @Melvin-Moderator! You're right, the side effect profile is pretty high. However, decreasing the dosage results in lower side effects and the efficacy is still there. I use a combo topical finasteride and minoxidil spray and have noticed an increase in density. Some folks have also commented on it too.

I started on 5mg daily about 2.5 weeks ago

As for sides I haven't had any yet, but then it's only been 2 weeks and I haven't noticed any difference to my hair either.

Some folks swear by it. Dr Path is a big advocate and he wrote about it on this forum in 2010.

I’d really like to know why that is, I wonder if it’s because the hairs are regenerated, maybe it brings back the color.

It is because minoxidil stimulates keratocytes and melanocytes activity.

Hi mate, how do you split the 5mg in half and take 2.5mg morning and evening or the whole 5mg in one go? Thanks
