Should I use Minoxidil for hair loss

When talking about hair loss, it’s seen that everyone thinks that if you get hair fall then minoxidil should be used and it’s the solution to recover the lost hairs back. But it’s completely not true at all. Minoxidil should be used with dermatologist concern only and it’s not an over the counter medication.

It’s always better to get your hair checkup during your initial stages and to start with the treatments to face fewer problems.

Let’s talk about 10 points as to why we experience hair loss:

  • Lack of poor nutrition level in the body.
  • Medical issues like thyroid problems, gynecological problems like PCOD
  • Sudden weight loss due to physical stress.
  • Having steroids for increasing muscle in the body.
  • Heredity.
  • Excess intake of vitamin A deficiency.
  • Hormonal imbalance in the body.
  • Using styling products.
  • Ageing
  • Chemotherapy

Hair loss and hair thinning are the major problems among teenagers and the adult crowd. As they experience hair loss, they start goggling and start with minoxidil usage without knowing the importance of the medications and why one should consume this medication. As nowadays the internet is very easily accessible so everyone does not feel important to meet a dermatologist and to get the skin or hairs checked.

Minoxidil is a US FDA approved a drug which works well for pattern baldness and hair thinning in both men and women. This medication is having few side effects also, and which remain uncleared to the over the counter medication takers. They just pick the medications and with just half knowledge they start using this medication. It’s very important to know the effects and how to deal with the medications. It’s so much seen, during hair shedding periods everyone starts panicking as they don’t know about this phase in details. So let’s talk about hair shedding in details.

Let’s talk about 5 hair shedding facts:

  • Hair shedding is temporary.
