Dr. Green Talks About Oral Minoxidil for Hair Loss with Healthline

With all the recent news about Oral Minoxidil for Hair Loss and Dr. Green’s previous post a few weeks ago about it, wanted to ask a few more questions in today’s article “Oral Minoxidil: Why Some Derms are Turning to Pill Version of this Drug for Hairloss” where she talks about the differences between Oral and Topical Minoxidil for hair loss.  “Applying minoxidil topically also requires “more frequent hair washes…due to the effects on the appearance of one’s hair,” noted Dr. Green in the Healthline article. “It also makes the hair dry and susceptible to breakage.”
