If you’ve been actively looking for hair loss solutions, you must have stumbled upon names like Minoxidil, Finasteride and Redensyl. These are widely used hair regrowth treatments for hair loss, but there are a lot of myths floating around which hair regrowth treatment is the most effective.

In the battle of Redensyl versus Minoxidil, Minoxidil wins due to its longer existence compared to Redensyl, which is a recent innovation. Having said that, a lot depends on your individual preferences and what suits you better. 

Don’t worry, in this blog we will help you decide which one is better for you- Minoxidil vs Redensyl and evaluate which out of these popular hair loss treatments have greater rates of regrowth.

Uncover with us whether Minoxidil or Redensyl works for your hair loss.

REDENSYL VS MINOXIDIL

 

What is Minoxidil ? 

Minoxidil belongs to a category of drugs called vasodilators. Vasodilators help open up blood vessels, thereby facilitating the easy transfer of blood through the vessels. Minoxidil is also extensively used in treating male pattern baldness and helps in hair growth. This is also an effective means of hair regrowth treatment in women who are experiencing severe hair thinning issues.

How Does Minoxidil Work for Hair?

This brings us to the question, how does minoxidil work? It works on the basis of its vasodilating properties and contributes to enhanced hair growth by increasing blood flow to the hair follicles. It also enhances cell proliferation and increases DNA synthesis, thereby increasing hair growth. It has been used to treat hair shaft disorders and conditions like androgenic alopecia, telogen effluvium and to a certain extent alopecia areata.

However, before you start experiencing hair growth there is a minor phase when you start shedding all the weaker hair before the fresh strands start growing. People tend to freak out assuming that this is a side effect to using minoxidil but it's completely normal as minoxidil works by speeding up the shedding phase which will be then replaced with stronger and thicker hair growth.

If one selects Minoxidil for better growth one has to be patient and be prepared for the long haul as results are not going to show in a hurry. Also, do not take the risk of stopping it midway or abruptly as it might affect hair growth. Termination of the application could lead to hair loss within a period of 12-24 weeks.

Minoxidil is a strictly prescribed product which means that it cannot be used without a doctor’s prescription.

Before putting it on your scalp you would be required to clean the area. Part your hair in the section where your hair has thinned and apply the solution uniformly across the affected area. 

Follow the advice of your healthcare advisor accurately, do not apply more or less than prescribed. Remember, the drug takes time to produce results so, be patient. It has to be applied regularly over a period of 5 months for the effects to be seen. Minoxidil for hair is a very potent blood pressure lowering drug and that is why low blood pressure pressure patients need to be careful when taking the medicine. It can also increase your heart rate and therefore patients with heart complications or poor heart functioning mechanisms need to be monitored separately. 

If you are administering minoxidil for hair loss orally do let your doctor know if you are under any other sort of medication as it might interact with other medication and this could be harmful and at the same time inhibit the performance of the drug. Pregnant women or women planning to become pregnant and breastfeeding women should only start the medication on the advice of their medical practitioner. You can also get in touch with our Traya experts for doctor - backed advise.

What Is Redensyl? 

Redensyl is the latest innovation on hair loss and is made out of plant based ingredients. It is not a prescription solution and can be bought over the counter. It works on stem cell division and promotes hair regrowth by stimulating hair to enter the hair regrowth phase.

   

Redensyl for Hair

Before looking at the comparative advantages of Redensyl vs Minoxidil, let us understand what redensyl is actually made of? 

Redensyl for hair is a compound that assists in the better cell regeneration of the follicles which in turn leads to hair growth. It is a blend of seven plant compounds which are believed to contribute to hair growth.

Redensyl contains a newly developed molecule dihydroquercetin-glucoside which focuses on the stem cells of hair follicles to bring about the division of cells. The biggest advantage of Redensyl is that it is made of natural ingredients that are anti-inflammatory and also contain amino acids that constitute hair proteins. It is natural, non-hormonal and works on the cells to bring about growth. The versions that are preferred are Redensyl capixyl and procapil as they are not irritating and are non-sensitising.

The elements that are a part of Redensyl are:

  • DHQG
  • EGCG2
  • Glycine
  • Zinc Chloride
  • Meta-bisulfite
  • Glycerin 
  • Water

    These are hair restorative and hair growth actives and they work by galvanizing the initial hair growth phase. It takes control of the telogen phase or the resting phase of the hair follicles.  The different elements like EGCG2 and DHQG form a combination with zinc, water and glycerin and work on hair stem cell renewal.

    Research has indicated that Redensyl has been effective in improving the hair quality, volume and thickness of the hair follicle. It was observed that Redensyl - an important hair growth active was useful in treating pattern hair loss during the early stages of hair fall i.e stage 1-2.  After consistent use of this serum along with a well-balanced diet and lifestyle, you will notice that your hair fall is under control.

    Minoxidil vs Redensyl- Which One to Choose?

    So, is Redensyl better than Minoxidil? Wondering who won the Redensyl Vs Minoxidil battle? Read below.

    Compared to Minoxidil, Redensyl is a recent innovation and has been making waves with its level of performance ever since it has been offered as a product for enhancing hair growth. However, redensyl is used to manage early stages of hair loss in both men and women (Stage 1-2) whereas Minoxidil remains as the undoubted topical treatment for hair loss due to high efficacy rates and it's FDA approval. 

    Stem cell research is a trending area in the medical community and regenerative medicines have received a fair degree of focus in the recent past. Redensyl vs Minoxidil is a never ending debate but redensyl serum helps curtail the duration of the resting or telogen phase while at the same time increasing the anagen or growth phase. This helps it prevent hair loss like male pattern baldness and helps retain your hair.

    Redensyl is also the product of a greener process, involving the use of less energy and reduced use of hazardous chemicals to make it a more innovative and sustainable product. This may seem like a victory for Redensyl in the Redensyl vs Minoxidil battle, but Minoxidil results are like no other - especially in advanced stages of hair fall - Stages 3-5.

    Is Redensyl Better Than Minoxidil?

    In the Redensyl vs Minoxidil war, Redensyl seems to have performed fairly well but does not have enough standing to its competitor Minoxidil, which has ruled the market for decades as a promoter of hair growth.

    I feel much better after taking up the treatment. The treatment does not just include tablets and minoxidil.

    Treatment includes ensuring proper sleep cycle and proper diet. Surely there is notable changes after 9 months of treatment.
