Hair Loss Option: Rogaine

Rogaine Extra Strength After Hair TransplantRogaine (Minoxidil) was the first FDA approved treatment for hair loss. It is a topical liquid applied to the scalp twice a day and is approved in two strengths – Regular (2%) and Extra Strength (5%). Regular strength Rogaine claims to grow hair in 30-40% of individuals, while Extra Strength Rogaine claims to grow hair in 50-60% of individuals. Rogaine stimulates the hair follicle to grow, but may not prevent the eventual deterioration of the follicle since it does not block the male hormone causing hairloss, so results may deteriorate after 2-5 years unless it is used with a DHT blocker like Propecia. Rogaine costs $20-30 per month.
