The Power of Minoxidil

Minoxidil

Minoxidil is a topical solution some men and women use to treat hair loss. It is available in 2% and 5% concentration and sometimes is available with a higher dosage by prescription only. It can come in liquid or foam form, depending on the fabricator and needs to be applied twice daily. Success is varied though up to 40% of test patients have reported some increase of hair regrowth.

Minoxidil is a vasodilator which means it helps blood flow more freely in your vascular system. As hair is fed by blood the principle is to deliver nutrients to the hair follicle faster to slow down hair loss and increase hair regrowth. Often minoxidil is used with laser therapy and propecia or saw palmetto, thus having multiple regimens concomitantly to slow down hair loss.

It is important that to give any regimen a fair try, the individual must use the product for a minimum of six months to determine its effectiveness. As hair thinning is progressive and takes a long time to become visible, a solution takes time to have any noticeable effect. As each person’s body chemistry is different the efficacy of minoxidil and its results are impossible to predict. All you can do is try!

Tape or Glue? Choose the Right Adhesive.

adhesivesTape or Glue? Choose the Right Adhesive.

Some people attach their hair systems with tape or adhesive. I am often asked what method to use. Personally I like tape. Tape is essentially “adhesive” deposited on some type of backing. I like it because it is easy to remove. There are a number of tapes available – red tape, blue tape, clear tape, hurricane tape, no messy residue tape, lace tape, brown liner tape, yellow liner tape…the list can go on and on.

So, what about glues or adhesives? There are lots of options: silicone adhesive, acrylic adhesive, latex adhesive, daily wear adhesive, clear adhesive, white adhesive, yellow colored adhesive, thick adhesive, and thin adhesive. So many options can leave you scratching your head and wondering, “What should I use?”

Find the Right Solution for You

Everyone has their own opinion on what adhesive or tape to use. Your skin type can sometimes determine what is best for you. Your choice to be bonded, the amount of hair you have, skin type, manual dexterity, and lifestyle choice will also determine whether you want to use tape or adhesive.

My best recommendation is to consult your hair replacement center professional. They will know what works for you and should be able to give you the knowledge necessary to answer your questions. It all boils down to your hair attachment method being the right fit for your personal lifestyle.
