How MX 5 Topical Solution works:
Minoxidil is a vasodilator, which expands the blood vessels to promote blood flow. This reduces your blood pressure. The topical application of Minoxidil on your scalp helps in increasing blood flow through the vasodilation process. This increased blood flow provides more nutrition and oxygen to the hair follicle, which prevents hair cell death. It also stimulates hair growth by prolonging the action of a chemical messenger (anagen). This is how it works to lower your blood pressure, and treats your alopecia (hair loss).
