Yes, they will most likely grow back. I recommend getting a formal evaluation with a hair loss expert to go over your test results, condition and advise you on best treatment options. In our office, we use progesterone and prp with great results. Hair transplantation is an alternative. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer

Will I get my hair back after stopping minoxidil?

It will likelu come back (95 % chance) but the hairs that come back might come back thinner (skinnier). That's only a small chance. Most likely after two weeks of use, the hairs will return. See a dermatologist if concerned.
