  • Whilst minoxidil encourages hair growth and hair loss stabilization, the exact molecular mechanism operating in the cells that result in hair growth from Minoxidil is not known. 
  • Our body produces a catalyst called sulfonyl transferase that converts the inactive Minoxidil into the unstable active Minoxidil Sulphite. 
  • Minoxidil sulphite activates potassium channels in cells and this is thought to lead to hair growth. 
  • Another theory is that topical Minoxidil induces a significant increase in DNA synthesis in hair follicle cells. 
  • Whilst there is no conclusive evidence as to why Minoxidil encourages hair growth, the fact is that it does, be it to varying degrees
