Minoxidil - how long to work?
Minoxidil is FDA approved for genetic hair loss - it does not help other conditions quite so much. However, minoxidil is used "off-label" for treating telogen effluvium, scarring alopecia and alopecia areata.
The main use is androgenetic alopecia in men and women. It helps roughly 30 percent either maintain or achieve a slight improvement in scalp coverage. A full six months of use is recommended before deciding if it is helpful or not.
About 6 Months
Note that there is NOTHING that will "fully regrow" all of your hair.
How long does it take Rogaine to work?
First of all Rogaine has been proven to help in the crown area if used properly BUT most people do not use the product as prescribed due to the fact it needs to be rubbed into the scalp when you wake up and before you go to bed. Because of the labor involved, most people only use it 1 x per day and when they don't see results they tend to move on to the next thing.
The fact is, if it's not easy to use, people are not going to do it!
I don't want to sound like a broken record, but we have found that the Capillus272 is an exceptional product because it works and people can follow the protocol because it is easy to use. If you can put on a baseball cap for 30 minutes 3 x per week than you can have success!

Effectiveness of Minoxidil
It takes at least four to six months to see any results with minoxidil 5% (Rogaine). Some doctors recommend giving it a full year before stopping use. However, minoxidil is a marginally effective vasodilator drug with no effect on the hormonal influence of hair loss—which is the main cause. So, while it will prevent further hair loss, the odds are not likely that it will regrow all your hair.
How long does minoxidil take to work
The short answer is that minoxidil is not going to "fully regrow" all hair in any patient. Minoxidil can be a helpful treatment for maintenance of the hair, slowing hair loss, and possibly thickening the hair somewhat. Patience is key, as most any hair loss treatment needs to be used for at least 6 months to see a result, and preferably at least 12 months before deciding to stop.
How long for minoxidil to work
Unfortunately, the answer is never, as minoxidil will not "fully regrow" all your hair. That would be wonderful, but no medicine can do that. Minoxidil can reduce your shedding within 2-4 months, and regrow some hair in that same period. However, please remember that reducing shedding is very important long term, and that should be considered a treatment success.

Minoxidil is very effective in maintaining hair.
Minoxidil is very effective for preventing further hair loss. You may notice some hair growth after 6 months to a year. Other options included PRP (protein rich plasma injections). These are effective when there is still hair or fuzz present in the balding area. Lastly, you may want to consider hair transplantation to fill in the balding area.
