View Full Version : scalp tightness/galea membrane

03-26-2013, 04:40 AM
Does anyone else notice that minoxidil loosens their scalp? Mine get extremely tight if I do not use minoxidil even for a short time. I've done some reading and it looks like Minoxidil does not just stimulate the hair follicles. For some people at least, it seems to act as a smooth muscle relaxer and loosen s up the galea membrane under the scalp. Makes sense to me if this membrane thickens, the blood supply gets cut off. Thoughts?
