When it was first released, Minoxidil was a prescription-only treatment, and it was expensive – my first bottle cost me well over $100; that’s just a one-month supply. Now you can buy Minoxidil online and have it shipped straight to your door – no doctors required!
Rogaine is available in solution in strengths of either 2% or 5% – then 5% one is far, far stronger, and far more effective. A big problem for lots of guys and gals using Rogaine was that a lot of it got absorbed into their hair before it reached their scalp, and then it had to be rubbed in to be effective. Rogaine Foam has just been released to get around that problem, and so far the results are promising.
Does Rogaine Work?
So how does Rogaine actually regrow hair? The truth is that nobody really knows for sure. Some say it increases the flow of blood to the scalp, which aids hair growth. Nobody knows for sure, though. Used on its own, Rogaine can slow down or even stop hair loss and regrow some of your lost hair. Some but not all of it. Rogaine is an effective treatment, but there are no magic wands here.
Rogaine also takes 90+ days for the results to become apparent – hair takes a long time to fall out, so be prepared to spend at least a little time growing it back. Rome wasn’t built in a day and all that. One thing to be aware of is that Rogaine can cause extra shedding when you start using it. This simply means that you’ll see some extra hair in the combat first while your hair is growing back. This hair was going to fall out anyways – Rogaine just sped up the shedding process so that new hair can grow in that space instead.
Rogaine is also an ongoing treatment – you have to keep using it to keep that hair growing. If you stop using Rogaine then the new growth will fall out anywhere from 6 months to 2 years later.
Rogaine Side Effects
There are side effects to pretty much every pill or tablet you take but in case you’re really worried about the side effects of Rogaine here’s how it breaks down:
- Low blood pressure
- Chest pains
Rogaine can and should form the basis of your hair loss treatment for most men and women. Obviously you still want to get a doctors’ advice on this just to make sure.
