All the Power of ROGAINE in an Easy-to-Apply Foam
When it comes to a hair-loss treatment for men, there’s nothing quite like ROGAINE Foam. ROGAINE Foam is the first FDA-approved hair regrowth foam. It contains 5% minoxidil, and in clinical testing, ROGAINE Foam regrew hair in 85% of men after 4 months when used twice daily.* Because it’s a foam, there is no hassle and it’s less messy. It goes on easily and dries quickly, so your daily routine is never interrupted.
What Causes Hair Loss in Men?
Although there are several causes of hair loss, male-pattern baldness (also referred to as androgenetic alopecia or hereditary hair loss) accounts for about 95% of hair loss in men. It is usually triggered by a combination of hormonal activity and heredity, which together cause the hair follicles in your scalp to shrink.
Over time, the progressive shrinking of certain scalp follicles leads to a shortening of the hair’s growing cycle. Hair becomes thinner and shorter, until there is no growth at all. The active ingredient in ROGAINE–minoxidil–reinvigorates shrunken hair follicles, which increases their size and helps regrow thicker looking hair over time.
A Pioneer in Hair Regrowth
Like many great discoveries, the power of minoxidil to regrow hair came about by chance. In the 1980s, scientists discovered that minoxidil, being studied for other indications, actually showed signs of regrowing hair.
ROGAINE applied this discovery to produce the first topical brand approved by the FDA to regrow hair. Minoxidil is the only over-the-counter ingredient FDA approved to regrow hair. Since the discovery, ROGAINE has empowered millions of people to take control of their hair loss with a series of breakthroughs.
About ROGAINE: A History of Results and Innovation
ROGAINE is the first topical brand approved by the FDA to regrow hair–in both men and women. With more than 20 years of results and over 20,000 people in clinical trials, ROGAINE is the #1 dermatologist-recommended brand for hair regrowth. ROGAINE helps reverse the progression of hereditary hair.
What to expect?
While results may occur as early as 2 months, it may take at least 4 months to begin to see visible hair regrowth. After that point, it’s important to continue using Rogaine products every day in order to maximize and maintain your results.
During the first few weeks of use, there may be a temporary increase in hair shedding. This is a good sign and means that the new growth cycle is beginning. However, if it continues after two weeks, see your doctor.
How to Apply Men’s Rogaine Foam
Dispense ½ capful of foam, part your hair, and apply in the area where your hair is thinning. Use your fingers to massage throughout the hair loss area and then wash your hands. Apply in the morning and at night and just let it dry. Continued use is necessary to increase and keep your hair regrowth, or hair loss will begin again.
Men’s Rogaine Foam is for men who have a general thinning of hair on the top of the scalp. Not intended for frontal baldness or a receding hairline.
Working Great on Frontal Hair Loss for Me
By James on Apr 14, 2015
I’m 43 and had always had really thick hair. About 5-7 years ago it started thinning and I went to a doctor who told me I was worrying about nothing, some thinning was natural and with hair as thick as mine I had nothing to worry about. Two more years pass and I’m really starting to see it in my hairline, and worse, it’s uneven — the left side is starting to thin and recede noticeably, the right side not so much. Instead of the Jude Law — the classic widow’s peak — I look more like a prank victim with one side shaved. So I switch the side I’m parting it on, cut it shorter and do the spiky, cover it up thing. I also went to another doctor who prescribed Propecia, which I’ve been taking ever since.
The Propecia was good for stopping / reversing loss on the rest of my head, but the hairline continued to get slowly worse. I’d checked out Rogaine but found very conflicting claims as to whether or not it would work on the frontal hairline. Last year — actually 14 months ago — I decided what the heck, it’s only $40 or something, might was well try it. From other reviews on here I expected it would take a while to see results so I decided I would give it one year. Now that I’m just past the year I figured I’d come on here and share my experience.
For me, it’s been great. It took quite a while to see anything significant. Early on I saw some wispy hairs growing in but for probably six months the changes were minimal. I stuck with it very religiously, applying each morning and night without fail. I’d guess that in a year I probably skipped applying it no more than a dozen times. I took pix along the way so I could track for myself whether or not it was working and I put one from the start and one from an hour ago below. They’re both shot at the same angle, showing the side where the loss was greatest. What you can’t really see from it is that the entire hair line thickened quite a bit.
I haven’t regrown my teenage hairline and didn’t expect to. But for the minimal cost and inconvenience of rubbing the stuff in, I’m thrilled with the results. A few things I’ve found are:
1) Since I’m only applying it on the front it lasts me way longer than stated. I just placed my third order so basically I’m getting six months out of a pack.
2) It would last longer than that but when you get to around 1/4 – 1/3 of the can it starts to get thick and greasy. For the first 2/3 of a can it comes out very light and goes in without feeling sticky or making your hair seem damp. That last third of the bottle looks like you’re applying vaseline. At first I figured I’d save the ends for the night time application when nobody but my wife is seeing it, then I figured for the cost of a cup of Starbucks forget it. So I chuck the last third of each can. Don’t know if another brand would prove better in that regard.
3) Don’t understand any complaints about smell. If it has one my wife and I can’t detect it.
Bottom line for me is that I was really unhappy that the awkward hair line I had developed had totally limited how I could style my hair and I didn’t like the way I looked in pictures. 14 months in I’m quite pleased with the results so far. With all the research going into hair loss there will probably be something in 5 or 10 years that works much better and when that day comes I won’t have done something drastic and irreversible — like a hair transplant. I’ve had friends with worse hair loss comment on how lucky I am that I haven’t lost mine and I always tell them what I’m doing and recommend they give it a shot. If you’re reading this then you’re considering it and I’d give the same advice. It might not work for you, but for minimal cost and effort what’s to lose?
