I have been on Proscar now (1.25mg/day) for nearly 10 months, rogaine foam 1 to 2 days a time and Nizoral shampoo a few times a week. unfortunately, the shedding never stopped. When I shower, I still see 10-15 hairs on my hand when I shampoo and another 5-10 after I comb my hair after I shower . . . and then another 10-15 when I style my hair with gel in the mornings. I’m going to switch to name brand Propecia and try that out for a few months but I think I may just not responding to this treatment. My hair is absolutely more thin than it was before I started treatment. My thinking is that I go another 3 months on name brand propecia and if that doesn’t work, try Avordart. Thoughts?
As the title implies, Rogaine’s treatment for women is for daily use. It uses Minoxidil foam with Rogaine’s Tricho-prime technology that penetrates into the scalp and reactivates shrunken hair follicles. It’s not only good for growing thicker, fuller hair, but helps prevent further hair loss.

Not surprisingly, treatments with 5 percent minoxidil work better than treatments with 2 percent minoxidil. A randomized clinical trial published in the American Journal of Clinical Dermatology in 2002 found that, in men with androgenetic alopecia, “5 percent topical minoxidil was clearly superior to 2 percent topical minoxidil and placebo in increasing hair growth.” The difference was actually pretty astounding — after 48 weeks, the men who used 5 percent minoxidil experienced 45 percent more hair growth than the men who used the 2 percent treatment.
Caffeinated drinks (such as coffee, tea, and sodas) are dehydrating and thus, drinking these can actually cause water imbalance. Try to stick to water and unsweetened teas and juices and limit your caffeine consumption to one to two drinks a day.
There’s no cure for male-pattern baldness, but some medications can slow it down. Minoxidil is an FDA-approved, over-the-counter treatment you apply to your scalp. It slows the rate of loss and helps some guys grow new hair. But once you stop using it, hair loss returns.
ReTress supplements are meant to complement and improve the efficacy of the brand’s serum (available here for $59). When used together, the ReTress system helps to strengthen the anchor points of the hair on the scalp and to improve hair density. It’s specifically formulated for people experiencing hair loss and thinning, with a tri-peptide complex in the serum and a cast of complimentary ingredients in the supplements. In a clinical trial, 95% of women said they experienced an improvement in hair density when they used the full system, which also includes a shampoo and a conditioner.
The shampoo and conditioner work well together and can help improve the condition and thickness of any hair types, even for people with dry and itchy scalps. Ideal for both women and men of all hair types, this set can be used daily.
Recommended by most doctors, this two-way anti-hair loss system (daily supplement and activator gel with Trichogen), revives your dormant hair follicles, bringing it back to Anagen phase. This gives you a shiner, fluffier, healthier you’ve never had before.
Most people think that androgenetic alopecia is a condition where hair suddenly stops growing. There is little truth to this. The hair still undergoes the same cycle, but as the whole process repeats, the texture of hair becomes finer and thinner. Every time the cycle repeats, hair follicles continue to shrink until they cannot produce hair anymore.
