Hair loss, commonly called as alopecia or baldness, refers to hair loss from the body or head. There are many causes for this problem of alopecia such as male pattern baldness, infections (dissecting cellulitis, tinea capitis, folliculitis, secondary syphilis, and demodex folliculorum), medication effect (hormone replacement therapy, steroids, chemotherapy, birth control pills and other medications), trauma, pregnancy, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, aging and unhealthy scalp environment. Hair follicle growth occurs within the cycles. Each cycle consists of anagen, catagen, and telogen.


At the end of telogen, hair falls out and new hair follicle starts growing beginning a new cycle with new phase of anagen. A disruption in anagen phase causes alopecia. In this technological era and the development of science and technology, there are various treatment options available for the treatment of hair loss and the best available option is Mintop hair fall solution. It is a nonprescription medication approved for male pattern baldness and alopecia areata. Mintop contains the active ingredient Minoxidil which is a vasodilator type of medication. It is used to stimulate hair regrowth and to slow hair loss in men with male pattern alopecia, hereditary alopecia, and common male baldness.
