    Nah it's not too bad for it. I think a heavy bleach going light might be bad for it. Plus I follow with a good conditioning treatment. Thanks for the compliment

    those results are encouraging! I'm actually about to start minox, but I'm concerned about the initial shed. Would you say your hairline was noticeably thinner? I ask because my hairline is at about the same point as yours was when you started, but definitely not as thick.

    Looks like you've seen a major improvement in the density at the line. This is where I have about a quarter inch of low density (where pulled back), and certainly where I'm most concerned, along with temples.

    Was the first heavy shed bad? Looks like the results I need.

    Did the same for me. Only using it once every ***2*** days now and I keep my results while saving a ton of money... expensive to use this stuff twice a day for years.

    Yes, my hair line shed big time. It was a very worrying time.

    I got a very heavy shed which lasted a few months. I would lose hair in the shower and styling on a daily basis.

    It's not too expensive compared to other options and I don't hear much about side effects. I believe minoxidil is the first line of defence before drugs and surgery.

    I use half a cap per application, and I only use it once before bed.

    Chrisis did you find that Minox shed only the weak thin hairs that were due to go anyway or did it also effect the healthy thick hairs it came in contact with? such as those at the centre of the hairline.


    Were you not shedding before Minox? or was it an increased shed you noticed once you started?

    I am thinking about starting Minox also but dreading anymore shedding than I am currently going through.

    Has the shedding now stopped all together? no hairs in the shower or lost when styling etc?

    I think it shed some hairs that may have gone and has reestablished my hairline, thicker than it was before. I was not noticeably shedding before minoxidil. The shed has stopped now.

    Hi Chrisis,

    How long was it before you started seeing results?
    I've been applying it once daily for 5 weeks now and I think my thinning area is increasing even in pictures I have been taking?

    Did you ever use the liquid version at all?

    Thanks
