Is Rogaine better? Does the generic stuff work as well? Does the same thing goes with other brands of minoxidil treatments?

All Minoxidil is the same!!!!! the difference lies in the application and how much you are spending vs wasting .

the Rogaine one waists too much product in the application just like most the others out there.
I did find the Regenepure Minoxidil Spray waists the Least Product which ends up lasting longer and in tern costing less over time.

I do have to say some brands put extra things with minoxidil so keep your eyes open to the ingredients.

Happy Hair growth to all :)

I use Kirkland’s at night and Foam in the morning. Liquid minoxidil leaves a really greasy residue on your hair and it also takes a lot longer to dry. It’s obvious that there is something applied to your hair. It irritates my scalp a little as well. Using it at night and maybe weekends or something is a good way to cut costs without giving up the benefits of the foam.

Minoxidil : The brand name of this topical treatment for sprouting new hair is Rogaine, and it’s one of two FDA-approved drugs for the condition. Applied topically, is widely used for the treatment of hair loss. It is effective in helping promote hair growth. About 40% of men experience hair regrowth after 3–6 months.
Minoxidil must be used indefinitely for continued support of existing hair follicles and the maintenance of any experienced hair regrowth. Treatments usually include a 5% concentration solution designed for men.
Minoxidil will help slow the hair loss process and is the best solution for the time being to help you hang on to your hair. It may even help you grow a little bit of peach fuzz, and the biggest area you’ll see regrowth is on the crown rather than the front of your hairline. However, you’ll pretty much lose that hair you were trying to save if you ever stop using the med.
Though uncommon, some side effects may include itchiness and chest pain (minoxidil also comes in a pill to treat high blood pressure). Visit – hairtransplantabroad.com.au/male-pattern-baldness-symptoms-treatment/ to know more.

The answer is simple: The effectiveness doesn’t lie only in the formula. The secret is in the application. Foam and dropper tend to have spillage issues as well as minoxidil not reaching the follicles in the desired area. Foam and gel getting on hair and not optimum reaching the follicles and dropper, the spillage. The Spray on the other hand have more targeted delivery especially if it is a mist applicator like Regenepure Minoxidil spray. Less to no spillage and product not getting stuck on hair with maximum delivery and absorption on the follicle level.
