The ROGAINE® Effect

What is minoxidil?

In the 1980s, scientists discovered that minoxidil, being studied for other indications, actually showed signs of regrowing hair. They then applied this discovery to produce ROGAINE®, the first topical minoxidil brand FDA-approved to regrow hair.

In ROGAINE® Brand products, minoxidil delivers results by reactivating your hair's natural growth cycle by reinvigorating hair follicles that are shrunken due to hereditary hair loss.

Today, the ROGAINE® Brand is the #1 dermatologist-recommended brand for hair regrowth.

What happens when I start using Men's ROGAINE® foam?

1. Apply Men's ROGAINE® Foam 2x a day, every day.

The active ingredient, minoxidil, penetrates the scalp.

2. Start shedding your thin, older hairs.

Your hair loss may increase during the first 2 weeks of use. This is temporary and expected, and is a sign that old hairs are being shed as new ones start to grow.

3. Reinvigorate shrunken hair follicles.

Minoxidil works by reactivating hair follicles and lengthening the hair's growth phase, allowing for thicker hair regrowth.

4. Start the hair regrowth process.

Over first few months of use, Men's ROGAINE® Foam is working, even if you aren't seeing new hair yet. Early hair regrowth may be soft and colorless, like peach fuzz.

5. Regrow thicker‐looking hair over time.

While most guys begin to see results within 4 months of twice-daily use, it's important to keep using Men's ROGAINE® Foam to continue to maximize and maintain your ROGAINE® results. See the results for yourself in these Men's ROGAINE® before & after testimonials.
