Men's Rogaine Hair Loss and Hair Regrowth Treatment
Minoxidil Foam, Three Month Supply
As everyone ages, hair follicles begin to shrink, leading to thinning hair (or loss of hair density). Unlike hair loss shampoos or hair thickening products that temporarily plump hair from the outside, Rogaine 5% Minoxidil Foam with Tricho-prime Technology penetrates into the scalp to reactivate shrunken hair follicles, allowing for new fuller, younger-looking hair to regrow.
Rogaine is clinically proven to regrow up to 25% more hair*. No topical treatment works faster to grow fuller hair than Rogaine.
*** 11 Weeks In - Significant Results So Far
I've been using Rogaine for a little over 2 and a half months now, and I guess I'm pretty lucky. I've had rather advanced regrowth in my hair in a short period of time. Attached are my before and after pictures. Before treatment you can see aggressive hair loss that began about 4 to 5 years ago just after turning 20 years old. Lots of hair was shedding in the shower, and on my hands while styling. You can actually see the shine from my scalp reflecting from the overhead light.
After just 11 weeks of twice a day use though, there has been regrowth, and it's not an insignificant amount. After about 4-5 weeks I noticed I was shedding less. 6-8 weeks in my shower floor was looking much cleaner, with less scalp showing. Then shortly after that, thinning areas began to gradually fill in. I believe if I continue use for another couple of months, I may regrow even more hair and show very little signs of thinning! I've also been using Pura'Dor hair loss prevention shampoo with Rogaine (expensive, but worth it if you care about maximizing results). Please don't use this product, then damage your hair with a cheap, harsh, and damaging shampoo. Give your head everything it needs to be healthy.
Only side effect I've noticed is some random pains in my chest, so I may reduce dosage somewhat. Remember that this medication was originally designed for blood pressure issues, so only use as much as you think you need. More is not better, that's how you end up with side effects. Aside from that, I haven't had any itching or dryness that others complain about.
All in all, I wasn't sure if Rogaine actually worked or if it just slowed down hair loss. But I truly believe it looks like I have more overall hair than I used to just a few months ago, and I'm excited to see what my hair will look like after 4 or even 5 months of use. Just hoping the recent start of discomfort in my chest goes away.
Hope this gives you guys hope. Don't quit if you don't see results within a few months! I recommend buying a 6 month supply, taking detailed pics before, then use it twice a day for at least 4 months. Be disciplined and don't skip doses! Some guys take longer than others to respond. Monitor how much hair you're seeing shed in the shower, but try not to think about it or over analyze the regrowth too early. Just let it do it's thing, then check yourself after you've finished 3-4 cans. Good luck!
*** Another success story, with results that came sooner than expected!
I'm a 30-something dad, testicular cancer survivor, with hair that was quickly disappearing from the crown of my head. Suffice it to say, I was not happy with the changes going on with my body, most of which I had no control over. And my youth seemed to be slipping right past me while I grappled with the realization that I will never look the way I did in my 20s (which feels like it was just yesterday).
I needed a boost to my self-esteem that wasn't wildly expensive and it didn't involve surgery. I've seen enough surgeons for a lifetime! Rogaine provided exactly what I needed. I've been using the foam for 90 days now, twice a day, and usually very consistently. As the instructions explain, consistency is key. What I see in the mirror is amazing. Yes, it's entirely superficial, but it's a victory. I feel like a small part of me is back to the way it used to be and sometimes you really need that.
After about 30 days, I saw some small improvement. It was very gradual until one day I looked in the mirror and said, "Oh hey, there's more hair back there." I never experienced itching or dryness, or anything negative. It felt like nothing had changed at all. The only side effect, and this is very strange, but maybe 20 mins after I put it on, I felt one small throb on the crown of my head and it passed in seconds. I don't know what that was about. It wasn't unbearable or anything and that stopped happening after about a week.
60 days is when I really noticed a change. I used to be very particular about styling my hair in a way that hid the spot. It wasn't a comb-over, but it did have to sit just the right way. If it brushed up against something or a strong wind blew it, there would be an embarrassing bare spot.
So at 60 days, I was doing business in San Francisco on a particularly windy and rainy day. In the past, I would have panicked. The rain and wind would have revealed my bare spot and really messed with my self esteem. But on that day, I realized when I checked the back of my head that it was completely fine. There wasn't a bare spot anymore. When I went out to lunch with other associates, I felt happy and confident, completely unafraid that the wind was going to make me look strange. It was a very rewarding day to have that confidence back.
Now it's like nothing at all. I put the Rogaine on in the morning and the evening. It's that simple. Every now and then, I've skipped a treatment in the morning. Usually on a Saturday when I had some yard work to do and I just threw on a cap right after breakfast. Don't worry if you miss one treatment. You won't lose all your hair. Just go back to your routine that evening and you'll be fine. The instructions explain that your hair only falls out if you stop treatment for several months. So don't beat yourself up if you miss one. I would just suggest being very consistent during the first 30-60 days. That's what I think matters the most.
The daily requirement is the only real downside of Rogaine. You have to use it for life. But I don't mind. It's one small thing about my appearance that I really feel like I have control over, and I love the new confidence. If I have to rub a little foam through it twice a day to achieve that, I can deal with it.
The instructions mention it can take up to 4 months to really see results. I must have been fortunate to have seen results sooner. If you look at the photo, you'll see there is still a bit of thinness in the center. I've only been using it 90 days, so I figure that will fill in during the next month. Even if it doesn't, and this is as good as it gets, I'm still satisfied!
