What happens if I get new hair regrowth and I stop using Women's Rogaine?

Continued use of Women's Rogaine is needed to maintain hair regrowth. If you stop using Women's Rogaine, the normal hair loss process will start again. You will probably lose your newly re-grown hair within 3 to 4 months and will look the way you would have looked if you had never used Women's Rogaine.

Just remember your results and success depends on proper application of Women's Rogaine twice a day, every day, directly to the scalp.

Will Women's Rogaine react negatively with my regular styling aids, like hairspray or gel?

After washing and towel-drying your hair and scalp, apply Women's Rogaine, allowing it to dry before styling or using styling products. After drying, Women's Rogaine will not interfere with your regular hairstyling products.

Are there any side effects with Women's Rogaine?

Side effects of the 2% topical solution of Women's Rogaine are generally mild and reversible. Some people may experience a dry, itchy scalp and irritation, which can be treated by rinsing your hair and scalp with cool water.

Daily shampooing is encouraged, with use of a conditioner that may help dryness and itching. If the condition persists, stop use and see your doctor. Infrequent cases of unwanted facial hair have been reported. This hair growth will usually disappear when use of Women's Rogaine is discontinued.

How soon can I expect results?

During the first two to four weeks after you begin using Women's Rogaine, you might see a temporary increase in hair shedding. Don't worry — this simply means that the new growth cycle is beginning, and the hairs that were previously resting are making way for the new ones.

When you start using Women's Rogaine twice a day, every day, you will soon begin to notice less hair shedding. Eventually, new growth will appear as soft, very light hair. This is very encouraging, and means that Women's Rogaine is actually stimulating regrowth. At four months, you may begin to see evidence of new hair growth.

Another sign that Women's Rogaine is working is that your hair feels fuller and thicker, becoming easier to style. If you don't see any results after four months, discontinue use. While not everyone responds to Rogaine, most users do. Individual results vary.

How long do I have to use Women's Rogaine?

Female hair thinning is a lifelong condition requiring continuous use of Women's Rogaine. Consider it a part of your daily beauty and personal maintenance regimen. Hair loss will return if you stop using Rogaine.
