Minoxidil (5% ), biotin, caffeine.
Minoxidil: The mechanism how minoxidil stimulates hair growth is not fully understood. Scientists believe minoxidil helps hair growth through several means: (a)dilate blood vessels to increase blood flow and supply more nutrients to hair follicles (b)prolong follicle growth phase. Minoxidil is currently the most widely used product for hair growth.
Biotin: If you have taken some supplements for hair, you probably have noticed that there is one common ingredient, which is biotin (aka, vitamin B7). Research shows that biotin helps your skin cells produce more keratin, a protein that your body needs to make strong and healthy hair. Some studies also suggest that biotin can increase the rate of follicle growth.
Caffeine: It is widely used in topical solution or shampoo for hair growth. The mechanism it works is believed to be similar to minoxidil. Caffeine, as a stimulant, increases blood circulation to hair follicles and thus helps hair grow faster and become stronger. It also stimulates hair shaft elongation, resulting in longer, wider hair roots. It also prolongs anagen duration, which is the hair growth stage.
Having a manly beard is many men's dream nowadays. For some people, growing a beard is much more than just letting it grow and not shaving it.
Minoxidil is widely used by many people to grow a beard. The most commonly used minoxidil is Rogaine or its generic version such as Kirkland 5% minoxidil. Many people like the results that those minoxidil products can offer, but hate the application for several reasons:
1. Regular minoxidil is very greasy. It takes a very long time, 4 hours or longer, to dry.
2. Regular minoxidil contains propylene glycol and alcohol that dry and irritate skin, making it unusable at all for some people.
