    TLDR Topical minoxidil effectively treats male pattern baldness and prevents hair loss.
    The study evaluated the efficacy and safety of topical minoxidil solution for male pattern baldness in 153 men. The study found that after 12 months, there were statistically significant increases in terminal hair growth within a 1-inch target area in those treated with 2% or 3% minoxidil solution, in comparison with baseline counts. The 2% minoxidil solution was found to be equivalent to, or possibly more efficacious than, the 3% minoxidil solution. The study concluded that topical minoxidil is effective in treating male pattern baldness and preventing further hair loss.
