Kirkland Minoxidil is currently one of the two treatments which has been clinically proven to reverse and prevent hair loss and is a product that has been proven successful in both women and men of various ages. The other treatment that is proven to be effective is known as Propecia but is a product that is available only to men.
Minoxidil comes in either a cream or liquid which is applied directly to the area of the scalp either once or two times a day. This treatment is described as a type of vasodilator. What this means is that it works on increasing blood circulation to areas that the product is applied to. Even though there are a variety of other similar medications on the market, minoxidil is still the sole vasodilator which is proven to promote hair growth and stop hair loss.
Clinical trials which haven been carried out on minoxidil has resulted in around 65% of men that have either maintained their hair or increased their hair counts along with around 2 out of 3 women experiencing an increase in hair growth.
Minoxidil is also one of the very few products which has approval from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). There are many other types of hair-loss products currently available that make claims that they can reverse or prevent hair-loss. However, only the products which have been proven to provide what they promise are the type that receive FDA approval. If you find out about products that claim that they are proven, be sure to first find out if they are FDA approved. If you find out it has not been approved, then the product remains unproven and means there is no factual evidence that it will really help with preventing hair loss.
