    Default Does Rogaine work? (for women)

    I am experiencing some hair loss, and my doctor recommended Rogaine shampoo. The funny thing is my dermatologist didn't recommend it. She told me there are no products out there guaranteed to work for woman, only men. Has anyone (women) seen good results from it or heard anything about it?

    My dermatologist actually prescribed it. She prescribed Rogaine for men too. She said women can still use it, it is just a stronger strength. I'm not really experiencing hair loss though, I just have thin hair. She said Rogaine will make hair grow, but it takes time. She said not to expect any results for at least 4 months.

    Just thought I'd suggest a couple of things that might help you in addition.

    Keep your scalp clean. Dirt can clog up your hair follicles and interfere with blood circulation.

    Alopecia Areata (male and female pattern hair loss) is caused mainly by DHT (dihydro-testosterone) attacking anagen hair follicle growth causing insufficient blood supply to the scalp. The other possibility is excessive sebum combined with DHT which causes pore clogging and malnutrition in the hair root resulting in weakening hair growth and miniaturization of the hair follicle eventually leading to hair loss
    http://www.multiflora.co.uk/hair%20f...e%20growth.htm

    Take your vitamins

    Hair loss occurs when the diet is inadequate in the B vitamins - especially B6, biotin, inositol and folic acid; and the minerals magnesium, sulfur and zinc. The B vitamins, especially B5 (pantothenic acid and B3 (niacin), are especially important for hair growth.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    i've heard that if you stop using rogaine after using it, your hair will fall out (or something negative like that). like, you have to keep using it forever. there is another brand, nioxin, that is good for hair growth that is fine to stop using after awhile.

    Wow! This is definitely something to look into. Thanks! Like I said my doctor prescribed it(well, it's not really a prescription since it's available in stores but you know what I mean), but this was recently so I never started using it.

    Oh, and Fierce---one thing she did say was that you need to be careful when you're applying it. She said the products job is to make hair grow. So if you continually drip it on your shoulder--that's whats going to happen.

    And yes, vitamins are good too! Biotin is the way to go!!!!

    Thanx Fonz. I have also used sulfur 8 grease which stimulates growth and has a slight menthol smell. I just had to stop using it for a while because my family got tired of me smelling like sulfur.
