Is Rogaine safe for women?
I am a 20 year old female experiencing hair loss. My dermatologist suggested Rogaine and the pharmacist gave me the men's product :S Is this safe to use? I've read that it causes facial hair in women, so I'm slightly apprehensive. Thanks!

The men's rogaine is 5% minoxidil. The women's rogaine is 2% minoxidil. The medication causes stimulation of hair growth secondary to vasodilation, increased cutaneous blood flow, and stimulation of resting hair follicles. Basically, it will stimulate hair growth wherever you apply it (so just apply it where you have hair loss). The only difference is strength... if you have more severe hair-loss using the men's would be beneficial. Otherwise, it really doesn't matter much. Fun fact: rogaine used to be a systemic medication for high blood pressure... the most common side effect was hair growth so they made it into a topical medication instead :) Good luck!

Since you think it is the straightening that is causing issues, I think it would be safer to stop straightening rather than put toxic chemicals that close to your brain. Another thing you can try are vitamins and mineral especially for hair and scalp. Look for healthier shampoos and conditioners. Maybe that will help build the strength in your hair follicles and help you to stop losing hair. I use Envia. And it has helped my hair be much healthier. Answered by Machelle Sherer 1 year ago.

Is Rogaine for women safe to use if you're 14? Does it work?
Hair loss is common on my dad's side of the family. I've noticed that my hair has been falling out excessively even before I started straightening my hair. Are there any shampoos I could use or vitamins?
Asked by Ina Telfair 1 year ago.
I'm 14 and I've been experiencing severe hair loss lately. I'm pretty sure, if not certain, that it's due to the fact that I straighten my hair a lot. I'm getting a few bald patches and my hair is thinning wherever I part it. I've talked to my mom about it, and she's not certain whether using Rogaine for women would work, or if it's even safe to use on someone my age. Is it safe? Does Rogaine for Women even work?

Hi Daniella, Rogaine for Women has been effective for many women who are experiencing hair thinning or loss; however, you may want to try some natural ways to promote hair growth before using products. Diet plays a very important role in hair and overall body health, so it is very important for those looking to strengthen hair or prevent premature hair loss from occurring to have a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals. Your diet should be rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin B, silica, calcium, zinc and iron to reduce or prevent hair loss. B vitamins, which contribute to hair growth, can be obtained through foods such as beans, vegetables, eggs and nuts. C and E vitamins help circulate blood through the scalp, which stimulates hair growth; C and E vitamins can be found in a diet rich in fruits like citrus, vegetables like broccoli and asparagus, and nuts and seeds. A balanced diet includes fruits, vegetables, dairy, lean healthy meats, fish, legumes, and water. And while unhealthy fats can cause hair loss and weakness, healthy fats such as oils from fish and seeds help hair growth. In addition to diet, another way to strengthen hair is to stop with the straightening. Straightening your hair does not directly lead to hair loss but it does damage and weaken your hair so that temporary hair loss may occur. The heat from this and similar products dry out even the oiliest hair with too much use. If you would like more information on the causes of hair loss and the treatments available, please visit a physician or dermatologist. You can also schedule a free consultation with a Bosley professional who can diagnose your situation and give you specific recommendations to treat your hair thinning. I hope that helps and good luck! Answered by Jess Lagoo 1 year ago.

Heredity, hormones, stress, diet, illness, poor hair care – all are factors in hair loss. Stress, diet and illness are more temporary conditions and usually the hair loss is reversed when the anxiety-producing conditions dissipate, when the diet is improved, when hair care improves and when an illness is cured or gotten under control. Heredity and hormones are different matters, however. Heredity is an irreversible condition. You are a product of your parents, and hair loss is often inherited. Hormones are tricky, hidden things, however, and they have different effects on an individual basis. In a male, testosterone abides abundantly. There are also enzymes working on testosterone which product a substance called DHT. DHT is now known to circulate in the blood and cause other conditions, one of which is the shrinking of hair follicles. When hair follicles shrink enough, they are unable to produce and push a new hair through. As old hair dies, it is then not replaced. In women, hormonal imbalances can also cause hair loss. Pregnancy, childbirth and menopause all cause significant hormonal change and imbalances with both physical and mental effects. These changes can also cause hair loss, both temporary and permanent. Hair loss and re-growth products have been around for centuries. In ancient times, a variety of herbal and oil-based remedies were concocted and used by Egyptians, Aztecs, Mayans, and American Indians, all with some degree of effectiveness for some people. Modern medical research has focused on ways to re-open and stimulate “dead” hair follicles, so that hair growth can re-occur naturally, as well as keep the healthy follicles healthy. Thus, a number of products have become available, both by prescription and over-the-counter. They are advertised on radio and television and all over the Internet. One need only do a “google” search on hair loss, and there are literally thousands of sites and products for investigation. One ingredient in many hair loss products is minoxidil. Research studies have shown that in about 80% of the participants, products containing this ingredient are effective in slowing hair loss and, in some, causing re-growth to occur. Probably the most well known is Rogaine, available at any drug store, in varieties for both men and women. Most scientifically-produced products do have separate products for males and females, because, of course, hormones in each are different and of different levels. An additional product containing minoxidil is Provillus, and, again, studies have shown it to be effective. The difference between Provillus and other similar products is that the makes have added Azelaic Acid, an additional ingredient which appears to enhance the follicle repair in both men and women. Provillus has been the subject of many studies, just as the other products, and level of effectiveness may be higher. Provillus is available for both men and women, and the treatment is a combination of a topical liquid applied to the balding areas, as well as a pill or capsule to be taken in conjunction with the liquid. The critical key to effectiveness, according to its makers, is the addition of the azelaic acid, however, the correct amount of this acid is most important piece of this treatment. As with most hair loss products, the makers recommend patience. It may take from 3-6 months for improvement to occur, however, there is a money-back guarantee up to 180 days if one is not satisfied that it is working for him/her. Medical research is far from finished in its exploration of products which will stop hair loss and promote re-growth of “permanent” loss. As this research continues, existing producers will undoubtedly alter their products accordingly. Fortunately, a lot of money is being poured into the research, so hair loss sufferers, take heart!

No, it is not. It is for hormone problems which cause hairloss. At your age those same hormone problems would be cause for alarm. If you are actually losing it (hold them up to the light, do you see a root bulb?) then you should see a doctor - you could have a number of conditions that should be ruled out. If it is caused by breakage, use a thermal protectant and lay off the hot iron so often. Answered by Alba Whisenhunt 1 year ago.

Asked by Irmgard Juergens 1 year ago.
yes, Rogaine for women might work for you and there are some mild side effects such as : scalp irritation, itchiness ,dandruff and dryness. It is important for you to realize when evaluating the side effects that a long term commitment is needed when using this medication. Perseverance is needed and some recommend using it for six months or so before coming to a conclusion on whether it is working for you or not. Answered by Alvina Cleamons 1 year ago.
