Foam Vs Topical Minoxidil
Minoxidil comes in two forms: a liquid solution applied to your scalp using a dropper, and a foam that comes in a spray bottle. You can take minoxidil orally but this is less common.
Research shows that both forms of minoxidil work well for stimulating hair growth and treating hair loss – in fact, no one option is more effective than the other and both medications have nearly identical effects on hair growth. From an effectiveness standpoint, you should get the same results from either topical (liquid) or foam minoxidil.
Where these two treatments really differ is their convenience levels. Both forms are simple to use – once you’ve applied either version of minoxidil to your scalp, you massage it into the skin and leave it to dry.
With that said, some minoxidil users say the foam version of minoxidil is more convenient than the liquid one. Anecdotally, foam minoxidil users generally say it’s easier to apply, quicker to absorb, less dripping and faster to fit into a daily routine. Some users report the foam version absorbs into the skin in less time than the topical solution and therefore reduces oiliness.
With the application, the topical minoxidil solution comes with a dropper for a more accurate measurement of minoxidil, while the foam version is dispensed from the can via a nozzle. Because the liquid version of minoxidil comes with a dropper, some users find it easier to apply to specific areas of the scalp. This may be helpful if you have long hair and need to apply the medication only to specific areas.
Some minoxidil users suggest the foam version is easier to apply to large areas of skin, and you might find foam minoxidil easier to apply if you have short or thinning hair that affects a large part of your scalp.
For external use only. Avoid eye contact. Do not use if:
– There is no family history of hair loss
– Your hair loss comes on suddenly and randomly
– Your scalp is red, inflamed, irritated, painful or infected
– You are allergic to minoxidil, or have an allergic reaction during/after use

– You are pregnant or breastfeeding

What Is Minoxidil?
Minoxidil is an antihypertensive vasodilator medication. It’s a formula that works to slow down hair loss and also promote hair regrowth. It comes in topical and foam products that are typically applied to the head twice a day. It can sometimes be taken orally when prescribed by doctors in Australia.
What To Expect
You might not visibly see the results, but Minoxidil is already working and rebooting your hair growth. Some hair shedding is normal here.
Be patient. Things are happening!
Less hair shedding now. Minoxidil is continuing to stimulate hair growth and balance out your hair. You might start to notice thicker and fuller hair, or an increased hairline.
Now we’re getting somewhere with visible results! Your hair growth is increasing and should be growing thicker and stronger every day. Now’s not the time to stop though! It’s the key time to continue treatment for sustained and lasting results.
The efficacy of minoxidil is not in doubt. It has been found in many trials that it has great efficacy for the majority of participants and there are numerous anecdotes online documenting it’s efficacy. The rate of growth differs from person to person. On average, You should start noticing growth by the 4th or 5th month, Although it’ll only start being noticeable by the 6th month. Facial hair growth should be noticeable sooner.
There is no difference in terms of efficacy between brands. Since Minoxidil is a generic medication, it’s suggest that you consider some of the cheaper options instead of going directly for the bigger brands. It’s also recommend trying a different brand each time until you find one that works best for you.
This seems to be a frequent question which is why it’s included. Minoxidil does not cause sexual dysfunction. It’s possibly confused with side effects of the drug most commonly used alongside Minoxidil; Finasteride.
It’s recommend to start with liquid. If it causes too much local skin irritation, consider switching to a foam version which is a bit more expensive as they won’t include ingredients like alcohol and propelyne glycol (PG) which is an inactive ingredient in topical minoxidil.
