Oral Minoxidil and transplanted hair


Recommended Posts

I’ve been using oral minoxidil for a couple months now, and I’m looking at getting a transplant to fix my hairline later this year.

Out of curiosity - does oral minoxidil (or any minoxidil for that matter) effect transplanted hair? Like will it thicken hair taken from the donor area similar to how it thickens non-transplanted hair?

Yeah theoretically it could. Oral min could thicken hair throughout, though for most guys your donor is already relatively good healthy hair, any benefit is likely marginal.
