‘Can Minoxidil Maintain Hair Health as Well as Treating Hair Loss?’

HairlossANSWERS - Click to Submit Your Query to Our Hair Loss Experts

Name: Jay

Healthy HairQuestion: Thank you for this very useful article. I also have learned about the benefit of not washing your hair as often. Does the use of Minoxidil help to keep the health of your hair even if you need to wash it every day or every second day? Keep up the good work!

Answer: Hi, Jay. Many thanks for your kind feedback – we’re very glad you are enjoying our hair loss blog and finding it useful.

Washing your hair daily or every other day is important if you are using minoxidil as it prevents any residue build-up on the scalp. It also has the added benefit of making thinning hair appear thicker as clean, freshly-washed hair tends to look naturally thicker.

With regards to whether minoxidil helps to maintain the health of your hair, it is a topical vasodilator which means it increases blood flow locally, wherever it is administered. When it is applied directly to the areas of the scalp where it is needed for hair loss, it will increase the amount of nutrients delivered to the scalp.

This does help to improve the condition of the hair assuming the relevant vitamins and minerals needed for hair health are being put into the body – whether through your diet or via a food supplement such as Hair Vitalics.
