This is not proven but just a theory. The idea behind Minoxidil is to stimulate blood flow to the hair follicles. So what I do is get a hand scrub brush, pretty stiff, and scrub my scalp while shampooing, to the point where I irritate the skin to be red or tingly. This fools your body into thinking there is an injury on your scalp and promotes blood flow there in attempt to heal the phantom injury, thereby increasing blood flow to the follicles.
