        most people are more than willing sacrifice their health for fleeting pleasure drugs, food or other shitty lifestyle choices, and in those cases its not potential side effects, its guaranteed to negatively affect them.
        But if you have a full head of hair or heart problems I would be scared of minox too, since it will shed even when you just use it on your beard.
        Also kys reddit spacing stupid, atleast try to blend in.

          it can go systemic but not from normal uses. maybe if you are trying to grow leg and body hair so you’re giving yourself a full body minoxidil sponge bath twice a day

    its possible this will increase blood flow to the hair follicle, however beard growth rate is less than 0.5mm/day, so it would take months of consistent use to see much of a difference
    >biotin
    may make a difference if you’re deficient, but again long time to see the effects on new growth
    Most of these products just flatten out stray hairs and make the hair shinier (due to the carrier oil) so stupids think it’s somehow thickened their beard in days.

    Using Topical Minoxidil does work.

    However, do be careful of any of the side effects.

    I originally started used Minoxidil on my face for 3 months back in 2014 to help grow my beard. During that time I also started taking Creatine again because I started going to the gym again. I knew Creatine caused hair loss for me as I tried it about 2 years prior and after a month I noticed hair shedding in the shower. Anyways, during the original 3 months, I had no side-effects from Minoxidil. I stopped taking both Minoxidil and Creatine around the 3 month mark because I simply ran out and didn’t feel like buying more.

    Did I see beard growth results? Yes, definitely had new thick and permanent hair.
    I did buzz my hair about a month later and noticed my hairline had receded a bit which I think was due to the Creatine.

    Fast forward about 7 months and I decided I wanted to try Minox again. Used the same amount and same brand but was hit with Hypertension. Heart was beating fast and overall just felt weird. However, instead of doing the smart thing and stop taking it, I decided to just lower the dosage until the side-effects were manageable. After about a month I noticed the hairs on my head were shedding. Looked it up and saw that shedding may be "normal". Kept using it for about 5 months and while the hair on my face got better, the hair on my head got worse.

    Eventually, I bought another brand and tried my original dosage. That night while laying in bed I literally thought I was going to have a heart attack and die. After that scare I never took it again. Also, ever since then my hair’s growth cycle has been absolutely hecked and accelerated my hair loss which wouldn’t have happened until I was in my late 30s. It will literally not grow longer 7 inches before it sheds and regrows. 7 inches may seem like a lot but I have super curly hair and compared to before using Minox my hair would easily grow "forever".

    Use at your own risk.

        Don’t know.

        I guess my body just had a bad reaction to it. The chances of naturally starting MPB a month after using Minoxidil would seem highly unlikely. Especially since when I stopped using it on my face the shedding definitely lessened a significant amount but now my hair just continuously sheds. To be honest, the amount of hair that I’ve shed since 2016, I should be bald. I still have a head full of hair and hairline isn’t too bad but I do have a small thin spot on the back of my head but it isn’t really noticeable. When I tell people "I’m balding" they literally go, "What the hell? You have a head full of hair."

        I should probably go to a doctor and explain the situation but I think what happened was that the Minox simply hecked up my hair cycle and has put it in a state of perpetually shedding. I get my hair cut every 2 weeks and only once in 3 years have I needed to ask my barber to take "a little" off the top to even it out because it simply does not grow past a certain point.

        I’ll also notice that my thin spot on the back of my head will look good for a few months then slightly worse for a few months.
