I m lossing more hair after using minoxidil within 4 week .
Increased hair shedding during the first 4-6 weeks of minoxidil use is possible. It is recommended that individuals using minoxidil continue the medication despite the increased shedding.
Shedding occurs because the resting phase scalp hairs are shed to get ready for the new hairs coming in from below
Shedding can be worrisome - but should slow by month 2. If it does not, then further investigation and tests may be warranted.
