Minoxidil - is there any side effect if we use only for 10 days and stop it completely?

Side effects are rare even while you are using it. I doubt you would have any side effects stopping after 10 days of treatment.

In the first 4-6 weeks of using minoxidil, some users experience increased daily hair loss or "shedding"

Resting hair follicles, known as telogen hairs, are shed.

The main thing one might notice after stopping minoxidil after 10 days is a bit more daily shedding in the upcoming weeks.
