Rogaine: Learn How It Works

rogaineRogaine was the first approved hair growth treatment by Food Drug Administration (FDA). It is also the the number one hair growth treatment recommended by dermatologists. After extensive clinical trials, it has proved to be highly effective for hair regrowth in both men and women.

How Does Rogaine Work?

Rogaine contains minoxidil. Researchers believe minoxidil works by widening the hair follicle and lengthening the anagen (or growth) stage. This helps to counteract shrunken and inactive hair follicles in men and women over time. As a result, hair will appear longer and thicker.

Remember, patience is key when growing hair. It may take up to six months to notice results.

What Should You Consider Before Using?

Always follow the directions and precautions on the product. But the concept consists  apply the treatment to a dry scalp once a day for the foam. Wash your hands thoroughly to avoid minoxidil being spread to other parts of the body.

Pros:

  • Increased hair growth and thickness
  • Hair diameter is increased
  • Increased the percentage of follicles in the anagen stage

Cons

  •  Treatment must be used regularly to maintain results
  • Side effects like allergic reactions, difficulty in breathing, change in hair color
  • Not effective for everyone
