The propylene glycol (in Minoxidil) is harmless to most people if they are not allergic as most problems are topical and do not go to the brain
Minoxidil is topical, there are quite few barriers to get through before a topical medication reaches the brain. Most people tolerate Minoxidil quite well.
as it is applied topically it will have no affect on your brain. it can cause some redness and irritation to the scalp where it applied.
