View Full Version : What went wrong with my Minoxidil??

05-20-2014, 11:02 AM
I was using 2% generic liquid (purchased at my grocery) store with a fair amount of success for about 8 months. It was expensive so I switched for 15 days to 5% stuff which I purchased on eBay. During that time I noticed my hair was starting to shed quite quickly so I went back onto the 2%. It's now just over a month later (35 days) and my hair is STILL shedding fairly quickly and I think most of my gains have been lost.

What the hell is happening??

I would say you triggered a shed by using the 5%, but not sure if that could happen only using it for 15 days.

How long do shedding cycles normally last?

Yep nothing to worry about I would either make your mind and see what strength your sticking with, also stick to one brand.

It lasted for me about 2 month, but it will eventually stop and grow new hair. just keep up!

If 2% isnt working for you, I suggest you to keep using 5%
