Missed Rogaine for a week and a half and lost hair. Never grew after that

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I had been using Rogaine for 9 months and had gained a lot of hair in my crown area and was pretty happy about it. I missed 1 1/2 week of Rogaine due to a hospital visit .After this gap, I lost all the hair that I had gained. I restarted Rogaine after that and it has been a year now. I never got that lost hair back. I dont see even some small follicles here and there either. Has my scalp become unresponsive to it. Will it every respond again or am I just applying it for no reason now. ?

Has anyone had such experience?

Minoxidil works by maintaining hair, it doesn’t really regrow hair, it’s likely working, but that hair is lost. You should stay on it, otherwise you’ll lose the hair it’s keeping.

I do not provide medical advice, recommendations, all responses are my opinion.
