    it can
    topical will likely have less side effects than oral
    so if you’re that scared just take topical, if you want oral maybe talk to your doctor first
    heck you

    Idk but word of advice: become comfortable with balding. You dont have to do it all at once. No one does. And im not saying you cant fight back and hold off balding as long as possible or try to rock the hair you still got.

    The reality is you will eventually be bald and if you *start* learning to accept that now in the future when youre actually bald it wont be that bad.

    For head hair or facial hair? I’ve been using it for a beard for 8 months. From basically nothing to 85% coverage has been really fun to see change. Never had any side effects apart from some dry skin.

    It is horrible, no point in having minimal hair regrowth if it makes you look like an alcoholic methhead and having to apply it everyday

    I use liquid minox and it makes my head super hecking itchy. One good scratch fixes it, but then you’re left with large white flakes

    I feel like my heartrate increases a couple hours after I apply it. That’s about it though. My hair is no longer thinning now so I plan on switching from 5% to 2%.

    Yeah. Pretty bad ones too. I would try prescription-strength ketoconazole and finasteride/dutasteride before I tried minoxidil since ketoconazole has no real sides and I’m convinced the finasteride sides are mostly BS.

    With topical application for beard growth the only thing I’ve noticed is dry skin, and that is basically completely taken care of with good moisturizer and face scrub (Thrive Naturals Face Balm and Acure Brightening Facial Scrub, respectively).

    Right is one month into letting my facial hair grow out, shaving cheeks and neck and trimming with a #2 on guard with hopes it would fill in before becoming scraggly. Started minox at that point, left is one month since then, still shaving cheeks and neck, no longer trimming.
