... can use Minoxidil to thicken my hair by stimulating more hair to grow? I'm not sure if this would work or not
Minoxidil is FDA approved for treating male pattern balding (also known as andogenetic alopecia).
Minoxidil does not thicken hair in those who have thin hair by nature. It does not put more hair on the scalp. It simply helps existing hairs remember to do what they once did well- grow!
