This product is the generic version of Rogaine and is just as effective as the Rogaine 5% liquid solution (64% success rate). Unfortunately however, only Rogaine has prepared the highly effective foam variation. You can purchase the foam instead by clicking Rogaine foam.
Minoxidil, found in Rogaine is the most effective and only clinically proven hair growth stimulator on the market today. It has undergone scrupulous FDA testing and has been approved for the treatment of genetic hair loss. While the 5% solution is recommended mostly for men, women can use it too. However, it's typically recommended for women to use the 2% minoxidil solution to reduce the chances of unwanted side effects.
Note: Despite what the insert says, minoxdil works just as well for frontal hair loss, recession, and thinning hair.
The product sold on this page comes with a 3 month supply (three 60mL bottles and applicators) of topical 5% minoxidil. You can also purchase the smaller one month supply of the liquid minoxidil 5% solution by visiting: "Generic Minoxidil 5% - 1 Month Supply".
How It Works:
Minoxidil works by stimulating the hair follicles and revitalizing them. This sometimes stimulates the regrowth of miniaturizing hairs, promoting a thicker and fuller appearance of hair.
Developing Realistic Expectations:
Minoxidil is typically more effective the earlier you start treatment. For best results, men and women should also consider using DHT blockers. See the "Recommended Treatments" section below for specific products.
Don't expect immediate results. Just as hair loss is a slow process, regrowing it is too. Thus, it's recommended to use minoxidil for approximately 6 to 12 months before determining its effectiveness. Documenting your progress with bi-monthly photos can help you better evaluate the results.
Hair shedding is a common symptom the first few months and a sign that the medication may be working for you. It's crucial to push past this stage with continued use for the recommended period of time.
To date, only surgical hair restoration is proven to grow hair in completely bald areas. You are invited to have a free virtual consultation with one of our prescreened hair restoration physicians.
