Minoxidil is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug used to treat hair loss. Possible side effects of Minoxidil are allergic irritants, contact eczema and hypertrichosis, which are usually reversible without interruption of treatment. However, the major disadvantage of applying Minoxidil to your scalp 3-4 times every week, is that if or when you ever stop using Minoxidil, any hair you might have gained or any hair you would have genetically lost if you had not used Minoxidil, will immediately fall out and make you suddenly look even balder, than you were before you started applying Minoxidil to your scalp. Another major downside with Minoxidil is that the annual cost is expensive, compared with the iGrow Laser Home Use Helmet Device, mentioned above, which should only need replacing once every ten years, or once every five years if you share it with your partner.
