Some tips regarding Rogaine use: 

  • To get the best results from Rogaine use you must use it correctly, twice a day, and every day. Using more than that, or applying it more often will not improve results.

  • If you skip an application, do not try to make up for it. Simply return to your twice-a-day schedule.

  • Apply it to the dry hair. This allows maximum penetration.

  • While using Rogaine, you can continue other hair care routines, including washing and styling. However, be gentle to your scalp. Use a mild shampoo. Many conditioners weigh down the hair. So if you use one, be sure it is light, and rinse it out completely. Harsh shampoos or conditioners can dry the scalp and make it more susceptible to rash or itching. Wait 20-25 minutes after application to use the styling aids like gels.

  • If you're concerned about scalp irritation don’t use Rogaine on the same days that your hair is colored or treated with chemicals.

  • Swimming or showering: Wait 4 hours after applying Rogaine before you go swimming or showering.

  • Note: some people may experience changes in hair color and/or texture. These do not requires to quit the medication.

  • Beware: keep away from fire or flame, Rogaine is flammable.

How long should I use Rogaine ?

The duration of Rogaine use is a debatable issue, and you can find very different opinions on the net. It’s important to note that Rogaine does not CURE baldness. It is effective only while you use it. You must apply it to your scalp twice a day for life to get and maintain any benefits. It is also possible that Rogaine’s effects may diminish over time, because patients can build up a tolerance after many years of use. If you stop taking Rogaine use, you will lose whatever hair you preserved or regrew.
