If you are one of the millions of men out there who are suffering from hair loss or are concerned for your hairs future and would like to find a way to prevent it before it begins, then Rogaine may just be the answer for you! Losing your hair at any age can be devastating but even more so if you consider yourself to be rather young! Perhaps it has not started happening yet but Uncle Moe started losing his hair in his early 20's and Cousin Al was totally bald by the time he turned 32! If hair loss tends to run in your family or you notice that your hair has been thinning at an alarming rate, there's no better time than now to try a shampoo designed for men experiencing hair loss!
First introduced to the market in 1988, Rogaine is widely accepted throughout the hair loss community as a method of treatment to aid in the regrowth of hair loss due to hereditary causes and was the first product to be clinically tested and approved by the FDA for treatment of hair loss. It can also be used as a preventive measure for those men seeking to insure they keep the head of hair they have! Rogaine is mainly formulated with Minoxidil, a chemical known to stimulate the production of hair at its root by assisting in the proper circulation of the blood flow to and around the scalp.
Rogaine comes in the form of a shampoo and a foam that is to be used twice daily for maximum effect. Once you start using Rogaine it is important not to stop as the effects will wear off if the regimen is not adequately maintained. Rogaine has also become quite popular as a hair restoration method for women as well, but it is recommended that between the two strengths it is offered in, 2% and 5%, women should use the lower of the two. To use as a shampoo, it is best to massage the Rogaine into the scalp for longer than you would regular shampoo. Massaging the scalp along with the Minoxidil in the shampoo help to stimulate the follicle for best hair regrowth potential. The foam is to be used as a leave in treatment after shampooing and can be used on its own or for maximum potential, along with the Rogaine shampoo. The foam should be massaged into the scalp as well, hair styled as usual and left to dry.
In a 16 week study of men using Rogaine 5% versus a placebo, 85% of the men using the Rogaine with Minoxidil reported a significant amount of new hair growth. That is new hair growth in just 16 weeks. With results such as these from a clinically proven treatment available to anyone over the counter, do not you think you owe it to yourself to try what many men have found to be a wonderful cure for a not so wonderful problem? When it comes to hair loss shampoos, it looks as though Rogaine has paved the way for cures to come!
