    TLDR Using minoxidil on the scalp can help grow hair for people with hereditary baldness.
    Topical minoxidil therapy is an effective treatment for hereditary androgenetic alopecia, with studies showing that it can promote hair growth in patients with baldness ranging from type 3 to type 6. The therapy is effective in both men and women, with no significant side effects. The number of indeterminate hairs, duration of baldness, and size of the balding area are important factors for hair regrowth. The optimal frequency and percentage of the solution required for hair growth are still unclear.
