Topical Minoxidil: Hair Growth Agent

Difference in Enzyme Activity

There are individual differences in the sulfate action by minoxidil sulfotransferase in the hair follicles. The enzyme activity is different in each person.

Those who with strong activity of minoxidil sulfotransferase can produce a lot of minoxidil sulfate, which will result in satisfactory effect on hair regrowth.

On the contrary, those who with weak action of this enzyme can produce only small amount of minoxidil sulfate even from the same amount of minoxidil, which results in insufficient effect without remarkable change in hair thickness.
