Procapil or Minoxidil for Hair Growth, Which is Better?

If you clicked on this blog, then it is likely that you know that both Procapil and Minoxidil are and can be used to promote hair growth. If you did not know this, let us give you some background. Hair loss does not discriminate and can happen to anyone at any age. That's why it has become such a huge market for consumers as well as companies to search for the best and most effective solution and cure for hair loss. Thus far, Minoxidil, as well as Procapil, are amongst the most effective ingredients that have been tested and proven to work best for the promotion of hair growth. However, amongst those studies, one ingredient outperforms the other, can you guess which one? We will provide the pros and cons of each ingredient to let you decide whether Procapil or Minoxidil is better for hair growth.


Minoxidil is considered to be a vasodilator, meaning it is a medication that dilates the blood vessels and allows for blood to flow through the veins more easily. Minoxidil can be used on its own as a foam, solution, or in pills and medications to treat hair loss. However, there are side effects. Minoxidil is not recommended to be applied or placed anywhere else on the body besides the scalp, as absorption into the body can cause unwanted effects to the heart and blood vessels.

More common side effects of minoxidil include:

  • scalp irritation
  • facial hair growth
  • chest pain
  • increased heartbeats
  • swollen hands and feet
  • weight gain
  • headache, dizziness, confusion
  • flushing
  • change in hair color
  • itching/skin rash
  • acne
  • irritation or burning of the scalp
  • inflammation or soreness at the root
  • swollen face
  • blurry vision
  • diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting



Procapil is a relatively newer formula that is a natural solution made of ingredients that can be found in citrus and olive trees. It is known to strengthen the hair follicle and prevent hair loss while boosting hair growth by up to 121%. Procapil is also known for facilitating the communication of cells and holding the cells together in order to prevent the effects of DHT, or Dihydrotestosterone, a chemical that affects hair loss and is the primary cause of alopecia. Procapil works to increase blood flow in the scalp to nourish the scalp, thicken brittle and thinning hair while fighting hair loss, and strengthen the hair from root to tip. Results have proven that procapil has beneficial effects on hair as it protects and repairs it while leaving it looking strong, beautiful, and healthy.

Side Effects: None.

The fact that procapil is made from naturally derived ingredients instead of chemicals is what makes it so effective in helping those suffering from hair loss. That is why Active Care has made sure that Procapil is the main ingredient in their Active Line that is formulated for limp and thin hair. The Active Line nourishes and purifies the scalp, strengthens the roots, provides intense hydrating and volumizing benefits, and keeps hair looking thicker and healthier.
