    TLDR Minoxidil can help grow hair in mice by making cells grow and improving hair quality. More research needed.
    The study found that minoxidil can stimulate hair growth in mouse vibrissae follicles in organ culture by increasing cell proliferation and differentiation. It also improved hair follicle morphology and reduced degenerative processes. Minoxidil may be a potential treatment for hair loss, but further research is needed to confirm these findings.
