    TLDR Minoxidil promotes hair growth in women with early-stage alopecia.
    The document reports on various studies that investigated the effect of minoxidil on hair growth in women with androgenetic alopecia. The studies found that minoxidil is effective in promoting hair growth, particularly in women with stage I and II alopecia. The most reliable estimator for hair growth was found to be the total weight of hair, and accurate sampling procedures are important for reliable results. The studies recommend a test period of at least 32 weeks and using a larger sample size to establish measurement standards for hair growth.
