A very common question among men of all ages and women is does Rogaine really work. For men and women alike losing your hair or going bald can be a troubling circumstance. Nobody wants to see their head full of hair suddenly start to thin out. Cosmetically speaking it can be very emotionally devastating as your hair slowly falls out. Consequently people have for hundreds of years have searched for a cure for baldness and general hair loss. So far in the United States there are only two FDA approved treatments for hair loss Rogaine and Propecia. As a side note minoxidil is Rogaine in generic form. So after considerable research I decided to try Rogaine before anything else.In the future I might incorporate Propecia and a laser comb.

Rogaine Twice A Day Or Once

So I have been using Rogaine for a little while now twice a day once in the morning before work and once at night before going to bed. Unfortunately for me I’m not a morning person and now I’m using Rogaine and forced to wake up even earlier to give proper amount of time for the Rogaine to dry after application. I use the supplied dropper to squeeze a few drops all around my scalp and on the back. To be quite honest I don’t like how it feels on my scalp and how it makes my hair look immediately after application.

After each application you have to be careful not to have the Rogaine drip all over your face. You really don’t want any Rogaine to drip onto your face in order to prevent any chance of hair growth in areas you don’t want any hair. Besides the dripping it also makes my hair and scalp feel greasy which I don’t particularly like and for my particular head of hair makes it harder to style the way I like it. So at this point I am doing some research and actually considering using Rogaine only once a day before bedtime. This way I can prevent all the hassle and trouble I go through before work every morning.

If I stick with two times a day I might try one application after work as soon as I get home and then another application right before bedtime. However so far from what I read two times a day is best, once a day will work but twice will give the quickest and fullest results. This of course is according to the company who makes Rogaine and most users of minoxidil. It seems like a lot of people will use two applications a day until they feel they’ve reached all the growth they going to get and then switch over to maintenance at once a day. But there are plenty of people I’ve read about who get results with one application day.

Rogaine liquid Or Foam

While after some further research I come to the conclusion that a three month test of Rogaine might not be enough time. Even though there have been people who seen improvement in three months the majority of people truly notice a difference in six months. I currently have a three month supply of liquid Rogaine and I believe I will buy an additional three month supply for total of six months test of Rogaine. This way at least I’ll know for sure if minoxidil is truly going to do anything for me, hopefully new hair growth.

It turns out I have a longtime friend who is actually been using Rogaine for number of years now. He never mentioned it before to me until I told him I was going to try Rogaine for my bald spot as an experiment. Funny enough he never brought it up in conversation with me because I never talked about my hair loss and just figured I didn’t care much about it. Anyway he explained to me he started with Rogaine liquid and then eventually switched over to Rogaine foam. He is quite happy with the Rogaine foam for couple reasons, he feels is better absorbed and it’s much easier to apply to the thinning areas of the scalp.

Consequently he recommends I switch over to the foam after I’m done with my liquid Rogaine. He’s a real cheap guy and started with the generic minoxidil right from the beginning and has had good results according to him. All I can attest to is he hasn’t had any visible hair loss since I’ve known him so I guess the minoxidil’s been doing its job. So I decided to try Rogaine liquid for three months and see how that goes and then try Rogaine foam and just keep using the one I prefer the most. I have to admit though the foam does seem more convenient however I prefer results much more than convenience.

I Did Not Purchase Rogaine

Just for the record I did not go and purchase Rogaine for myself in fact even though I have a bit of a bald spot in the back of my head it never really bothered me that much. However my brother-in-law who happens to be totally bold was given a couple bottles of Rogaine for his birthday. For better or worse he flat out refused to use it and ended up giving it to me to try out. At that point I said what the hell it’s free I’ll give it a shot and was given three bottles of Rogaine which is about a three month supply. So I figured if I see any improvement in three months I’ll continue using the minoxidil.

I have helped family and friends with their own blogs and other websites and since I have some knowledge in this I decided why not blog about my experience and results with Rogaine. I plan to document my usage of Rogaine including all the positives as well as all the negative effects upon my hair. I am a regular consumer and in no shape or manner have any connections with Rogaine whatsoever. I am merely documenting my results in order to possibly help others who are thinking about trying Rogaine for the first time.

Initially like I said I’ll start with Rogaine however once my three month supply finishes and I determine want to continue using Rogaine I will just buy the generic form minoxidil. From what most people tell me and from what I’ve read online the generic works just as fine as the brand name. Essentially whatever brand is cheapest and on sale is what I am going to purchase. Currently the status of my hair is not bad at all, I have a full head of hair though not as thick as I would like. However in the back of my head I have a bald spot in the usual area where most men begin to lose the hair. At the very least am hoping to stop it from progressing anymore and if possible to regrow some hair would be fantastic.
