When it comes to hair growth treatments, there’s just nothing easier than an OTC minoxidil for men. When it comes to OTC hair loss treatment minoxidil solutions, MinoxidilMax is one of the brands at the top of the list.
MinoxidilMax is intended for people with male pattern baldness (also referred to as androgenic alopecia).
Male pattern baldness is caused by a genetic defect of hair follicles, where they do not react well to DHT. In susceptible individuals, hair follicles shrink when exposed to it. This prevents them from producing hair normally, and it shortens their lifespan.
You should not use this product if you are a women, under 18 years old, have heart disease, have low blood pressure, if you are a pregnant woman, if you have no family history of hair loss, if you use other medicine on your scalp, or if your hair loss is sudden and/or patchy. Please check the official company website for a full list of who should not take this product.
Because normal hair usually grows between ½ to one inch per month, hair re-growth with this hair growth product takes time. Results can be seen in as little two months with twice daily use. For some people, it could take four months to see results.
We carry a couple of MinoxidilMax custom formulas that include the following:
Both Dualgen 5 products are similar except that the No PG formula does not contain propylene glycol. Some people are sensitive to Propylene glycol. If you are allergic to Propylene glycol, then you would get an itchy or irritated scalp when exposed to it. If you wish to purchase the DualGen 5 minoxidil solution, but you are allergic to PG, then you can buy the no-PG version.
MinoxidilMax’s Dualgen products are a little bit more expensive, but they have additional ingredients. Think about how important it is for you to handle your hair loss effectively. Are you willing to spend the extra money to keep you hair? You can also try the products to see which one works best for you. Try one hair loss product for two months, and then try another one if it’s not doing what you want it to.
