View Full Version : White buds on the end of hairs

09-12-2013, 11:01 AM
I was just wondering if anyone knew what these actually meant? The thing is, I used to always have them at the end of the hairs I shed, yet since starting Minox and Nizoral about 5 months ago, I never ever see them anymore.

Does anyone have any ideas why?

Apologies if this is in the wrong forum, just thought it was related to the treatments I'm on.

It means the hair was shed naturally, as the follicle goes into the rest phase before producing a new hair. Any hair that sheds on any human regardless of mpb or not will have it. If there's no white bulb, it means the hair was broken off from the base, etc from dryness or being pulled.

Has nothing to do with minox or mpb

On further inspection, turns out the white buds are actually there but they're miniscule. The same width as the hair near enough.

Any ideas why that's happened? I used to get hairs falling out with chunky white buds at the bottom.

maybe its residue?

I don't think so, it's really confusing. I'm not sure if it's a good thing, or a bad thing.
