Are High-Strength Minoxidil Formulas better than Lower-Strength Ones and is there a natural equivilant?



There are two forms of topical minoxidil available over the counter today: two percent and five percent. It is generally felt that the five percent solution is more effective in preserving existing hair and stimulating new growth. The five percent solution is not recommended for use in women because of possible increased hair growth on the sides of the face. This growth is temporary, however, and some practitioners do use it after explaining the full range of possible side effects and complications to the individual. The five percent solution is definitely better at maintaining and promoting new hair growth.

We recommend the use of Vitastim and if necessary Biostim as well, in all cases for best results.
