Minoxidil 2 has two kinds of applications: one for men and one for women. This is
necessary because of the difference in the anatomy of both sexes. The numerical representation two means 2 %
solution. It really means regular strength Minoxidil.
The several solutions that minoxidil have is due to the different needs that each consumer
has. The two percent regular strength is ideal for women and is the most they can use, never the higher percentage
types. It is ideal for top of the head application when hair becomes attenuated and sparse. What it does is
encourage hair regeneration and halt hair depletion caused by pattern baldness.
There are many ways that hair can disappear from the top of our heads, aside from
hereditary and alleged environmental factors. But what are the signs that you’ll need the regular strength
minoxidil? A receding hairline is not one of them since minoxidil is not effective against it.
The last thing you’ll notice is your more prominent scalp; you won’t even be the first one
to notice it. A friend may break the news to you jokingly. The brush or comb will slide off more easily and your
hair will keep on falling during your sleep, when you take a bath and when you comb your
hair. The same conditions apply to men.
Two percent Minoxidil solutions for
men can be bought over the counter. It is safe and easy to use.
The first tangible effect is the reduced hair loss and the
maintained growth of existing hair. Both men and women who use the 2 percent solution should be patient while
waiting for the result. The application should be done religiously twice daily both for men and women. Special
applicator is provided for the administering of the drug. For women, the wait is shorter to see if the hair has
re-grown already. The waiting usually takes from 15 up to 30 days. Men will have to wait for 60 to 90

occurrence, just like molting in chickens. The old hairs are discarded in preparation for the new
hairs to grow. If
after 15 to 30 days, the condition persists, you will have to see a doctor for proper diagnosis and
There are several instances when the use of minoxidil 2 is not
advisable. Minoxidil is not good for people below 18 years of age. The solution may prove harsh to the skin and may
cause serious side effects.
Although many still doubts the effect of minoxidil 2, a
scientific study was done to confirm its effects. This became necessary in order to get the approval of FDA.
The results were conclusive according to the trials, though the two percent solution really did make hair grow
after months of experimentation. The FDA granted a license to it in 1988 based on several other researches. The two
percent minoxidil, according to the research, is the only product to have ever proven hair growth again after
having been lost for a long time.
