Q: I have a question regarding minoxidil. (it helps regrow and grow hair). I am trying to use it on my beard and I was wondering if it is permissible. I looked at the ingredient and it has alcohol, propylene glycol, purified water. Will the alcohol part make it haram to use it? Please get back to me as soon as possible with the above information.
