Hi i would like to know if minoxidil can harm the heathy hair non affected by dht .

I only apply it on the temple and i don't want my mid scalp to become dependent on minox .

any opinion about this ?

My opinion is that is nonsense what would make you think minoxidil somehow creates dependency? Minoxidil and finasteride need to be taken in order for them to be effective, the moment you stop taking it you'll lose hair again.

If you have the MPB gene no hair on top of your head is safe from DHT, so I don't think it's appropriate to say "healthy" hair, you could have miniaturization that can not be seen with the eye.

Generally what happens is you stop taking minoxidil then you you lose all the hair minoxidil was keeping, same thing happens if you stop taking finasteride.
