Head hair

what do vellus hairs look like?

Question:

Are they like really fine, blondish hairs?
Ive been using minox about a week and a half now and where Ive been using it I have quite a lot really small, blonde hairs... I figured this is the vellus hairs everyone talks about.
I havent started shedding either. I still lose about 5 hairs or so in the shower ... the only other thing Im using is MSM to speed hair growth. Which I must be responding really well to b/c my fingernails are growing insanely fast, you could almost watch them grow.
Is 10 days too early to notice vellus hair growth?
Answers:

Yes and Yes.
What you're probably seeing is some minoxidil residue sitting on top of already existing vellus hairs - making those pre-existing hairs more visible.
Keep an eye on them though - because hopefully they're the ones that'll be getting longer and darker over time.
Good luck.
