Can I use rogaine once a day?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I’ve been taking rogaine and finesteride for the past 2 years. been going great and I thank god I ran into this site and have learned so much from everyone hear.  

Just had a question I know part of the deal with using rogaine with finesteride is using rogaine twice a day. With my schedule and everything going on I continue to forget to putting it on at night. Is this ok to do or am I risking loosing my new hair that I’ve grown.  It’s been a month that I’ve been putting it on once a day. 

Thanks guys

By using it twice a day you're getting 100% of the medication.  If you change it to once a day, you'll get 90%.  

I would just put it in at night, before going to bed that way you don't have to worry about it during the day.

I can understand this being a pain.  It is labor intensive...

Report on what you experience, if anything.

Topical minoxidil (regaine or rogaine) has a half life of 22 hours. Therefore once a day is enough.

I’ve been using once a day for the past 4-5 years and it works for me.

Melvin - When you apply Lipogaine or Azelaic Acid...do any hair fall at all OR do you see some on your fingers?

For me, I do see some hair when I apply both.
