I have been using Rogaine for about 5 years. I started right when I noticed my hair beginning to thin, which I think was key. It definitely prevented further hair loss and promoted hair growth...how do I know about the latter? Well I also use Propecia and about a year after using Rogaine, I added Propecia to the mix. I was working under the assumption that after 3 months of being on Propecia, I could then stop using Rogaine. Wrong! I tried that, and then I started thinning excessively. To the point that others were commenting on my balding. I quickly starting using Rogaine again, and I began to regrow the hair I lost!

Now here's the down side - flaking. Rogaine, in it's liquid form, flakes off. This is something that can definitely be an issue, and it's something that you should be aware of. I tried Rogaine Foam, but it weighted my hair down and left a residue in my hair, giving it the appearance of being thin (Keep in mind, I have a full head of hair. If you were to see me, you would never suspect I was losing my hair). I actually use both. Foam at night and liquid in the morning. I do this to minimize flaking, for I do not notice an issue with flaking when using the foam. I normally wash my hair in the morning, removing the residue associated with Rogaine Foam. I hope that was helpful.

I have used this product for several years. It has not given me a full head of hair. However, only recently did I discover that I have perhaps been using too little volume? (I am a bit cheap person..) Anyway, whereas I previously only sort of maintained a little hair on top I now suddenly get a lot growing out and I am excited to see how much I will get in the end. So my advise is to try this product and use it for a couple of months and remember to use sufficient volume.
Also, I see no reason to change to the foam varient- I have short hair and preventing the fluid from running down your scalp is not a problem. Just apply and rapidly spread out with a finger (and wash hands afterwards).

Comments about Men's Rogaine Extra Strength Hair Regrowth Treatment, Unscented, 3 month supply:

I started out using a generic store brand version of this about a year and a half ago when my bald spot had gotten to the point where people were saying (without being asked for their opinion!) just to shave my head. Some time went by and people started commenting that it looked like my hair was filling in again. Including my hair stylist. I didn't really take her word for it though. I didn't look at the bald spot since I started using this. I just wanted to believe it was working. Well today I decided it was time to pull out the mirror and see what has happened after all this time. It made a lot of that hair grow back. I am very pleased. It is still thinner than the surrounding area but it's not obviously a bald spot now to people standing behind me whereas before it was totally bald. And it's in the middle of summer now, when the heat and humidity always seems to make the hair thinnest yet it looks great. I prefer Rogaine brand over the generic brand. It's not as runny. As long as it goes on sale I'll keep buying it. I apply at breakfast and again after dinner. Easy to remember that way.

Comments about Men's Rogaine Extra Strength Hair Regrowth Treatment, Unscented, 3 month supply:

Now on week 14 with no results but [$] spent. Literature is minimal and confusing. Dr. approved for receding hairline, purchased product and literature says "not to be used for receding hairline", with no explanation why! Glad they got rid of the heavy French pefurme smell but hate the greasy application. Nice if you like the wet look but if you don't, it looka like you haven't washed your hair in some time. Literature used to say 12 weeks for regrowth and that has now been revised on their commercials to 18 weeks. You can take a pill, Propecia which does the same thing, I would recommend getting an Rx instead if you're really desperate but compare the prices first.

    Comments about Men's Rogaine Extra Strength Hair Regrowth Treatment, Unscented, 3 month supply:

    I have used Rogaine (or generic minoxidil) for over 10 years. After about 3 months I noticed that it stopped my hair loss - no more hairs in my comb. After several years I noticed a fair amount of new hair growing in the bald areas of my head- especially in front. This is actually more than what is claimed by the product literature. The generics are half the price and just as good. I have found that applying once a day is a s good as twice so long as it is not washed off. This make it much simpler and economical. Be aware that the product makes your scalp much more susceptible to sunburn - sop wear a hat!

      alittle messy at first as it sometimes runs, but i must thoroughly wash face and ears after when it does run. Still worth the effort to get the hair longer on top

            I use twice a day as directed. I have seen good results, although not astounding...but enough to justify what I am paying for it. I stopped for a while and definitely noticed more hair loss. Started using it again, and three months later, see a bit more hair, and loss has ceased again. It certainly hasn't given me a full head of hair, but I do believe it has kept me from losing much more, and grew a bit more at the crown.

              Men's Rogaine Extra Strength Hair Regrowth Treatment, Unscented

               – Men are born with approximately 100,000 hair follicles on their scalp, a number that will not increase throughout the rest of their lives - from birth, there is only one direction. If male pattern baldness begins to express itself, sometimes when a man is still in his 20s, the search for a way to genuinely reinvigorate the hair follicles starts. Men's Rogaine Extra Strength Hair Regrowth Treatment, Unscented offers a scientific, FDA-approved method of hair restoration for men suffering from classic androgenetic alopecia (AGA).

              The Nature of Hair Loss



              Hair has a natural cycle that includes three phases: hair growth (anagen), hormone-signaled transitional (catagen) and a resting (telogen) phase, during which the follicle shrinks and becomes dormant. Heredity, hormones and age dictate that 50 to 100 hairs are lost each day, but this loss is not considered significant until more than 150 hairs per day are lost. With a fixed number of follicles to begin with, by age 50 approximately half of all men have experienced that "significant" level of loss. For 95% of men who show hair loss at an earlier age, androgenetic alopecia is likely responsible, triggered by a combination of genes inherited from either parent and hormonal activity.

              The Science of Hair Restoration



              The active ingredient in Men's Rogaine Extra Strength Hair Regrowth Treatment, Unscented is a 5% minoxidil topical solution. It is the leading dermatologist-recommended brand to restore thinning hair, helping to reinvigorate hair follicles in the telogen phase so they increase their size and regrow thicker hair over time. It targets the particular "vertex" pattern of hair loss from the crown of the head, when applied directly to that area of the scalp. The process works with the natural hair cycle, and requires patience and dedication. The Rogaine system is not formulated for use by women and is not intended for a receding hairline.
