If you are one of the 9 out of 10 men that this product has an effect on at the very least you will notice that you are losing less hair than normal. There is a good chance that any hair loss will stop all together and you will experience the growth of new hairs.
Does it work for everyone?
Studies have shown that the topical solution is effective on 4 out of 5 men and the Foam, 9 out of 10. The factors that determine whether you are going to see positive results include:
- The reason for you current baldness – Regaine is designed to stop hereditary alopecia.
- How long you have been losing you hair before you start using treating it.
- The size of the bald area on your scalp.
When will I first notice results?
Anything from 8 to 16 weeks. After 2 to 6 weeks you may experience an increase in hair loss. Do not be alarmed as this is normal and proof that the minoxidil has an effect on you. This initial loss is caused by your dormant follicles shifting to their active growing phase which cause other follicles to switch to a shedding phase.
If you don’t notice any positive results after 12 months while using the Solution or 4 months while using the Foam you should stop as it is very unlikely that Minoxidil has any effect on your hair.
What will happen if I stop using it?
If you want to retain your new hair that you gained or the loss you prevented by using Regaine you need to keep using it. Stop and you will lose any hair that grew back or was preserved as a result of using this treatment plus any that would have been lost over the period you have been using it.
How long to I need to use it?
For as long as you want to maintain it’s effect. If you stop you will revert back to you previous state and lose any hair that you have gained.
How long does a bottle of Extra Strength Solution or Foam last?
Use it twice a day as recommended and one bottle of Solution or can of Foam will last you about a month. If you try to make it last longer by applying less or less frequently you will not experience its full benefits.
At what age can I use this treatment?
- Extra Strength Solution is intended for men aged 18 to 65 years.
- Extra Strength Foam is intended for men aged 18 to 49 years.
- Regaine For Women Solution is intended for women aged 18 to 65 years.
These age limits are based on the trials submitted for licence.
Regaine, Rogaine, what is the difference.
One letter. Rogaine is the trade name for Regaine in the USA. It is exactly the same product just a different name.
Will using a higher or more frequent dose increase it’s effects?
No, if you use it more than twice a day or increase the dose your hair will not grow any faster and you may increase the risk of experiencing side effects.
What should I do if I spill some on another part of my body?
Wash it off with plenty of cold water and there will be nothing to worry about.
How will I know if Regaine is working for me?
After 2 or 3 months of use you should be losing a lot less hair every day compared to before. Also check for any new growth which will be soft and very fine and possibly lighter in colour to the rest. Once these hairs are established they will grow thick and strong and blend well with your exiting crop.
