Though it has been a long time since this hair regrowth medicine is available, but its mechanism of working is still not clear. In spite of this it is necessary to understand its mechanism as it will lead to further research and development in the field of hair growth. Generic Minoxidil is known as a potassium channel opener. Potassium channel openers act as vasodilators that inflate the blood vessels.
For proper hair growth it should be supplied with the proper nutrients such as oxygen, blood, vitamins and minerals. The patients losing hair might be having inadequate nutrient supply to the hair. In addition, to this a hormone Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) covers up the roots of the hair follicles. This also leads to inadequate nutrient supply to the hair. Generic Minoxidil removes these blockages and restores proper blood supply to the hair. This way hair loss is prevented and new hair growth takes place.
