Minoxidil Sulfate is an antihypertensive vasodilator medication also claiming to slow or stop hair loss and promote hair regrowth. It is available over the counter for treatment of androgenic alopecia, among other baldness treatments, but measurable changes, if experienced, disappear within months after discontinuation of treatment.

Minoxidil Sulfate was first sold as a drug for high blood pressure and was noted to have the interesting side-effect of increased body hair-growth, or in some cases, significant hair loss. Treatments for baldness and hair loss usually include a 5% concentration solution that is designed for men, whereas the 2% concentration solutions are designed for women.

Function of Minoxidil Sulfate

Minoxidil Sulfate is a medication with vasodilating effects, meaning that it opens up the blood vessels. Originally developed for the treatment of high blood pressure, it became popular as a medication for treating the early stages of hair loss after care practitioners noticed increased hair growth as a side effect. Minoxidil Sulfate powder is believed to work by increasing the supply of blood to the follicles and promoting hair development. This medication can usually be obtained over the counter and goes by a number of brand names.
