How to Use Men's ROGAINE®
Fitting Men’s ROGAINE® Foam 5% into your daily routine is a lot easier than you might think.
ONE SIMPLE ROUTINE. THREE EASY STEPS.
Gently part your hair to expose your scalp, making sure your head is completely dry. If you use a comb, one with rounded, widely spaced teeth is recommended.
Hold the can vertically and press the nozzle to dispense half a capful of the topical foam. Always use the recommended 1 g dose. Using more or more often will not improve results.
Rub the foam into your scalp and gently massage it throughout the affected area, being careful to minimize any hair breakage. Wash your hands thoroughly and you’re done.
FOR BEST RESULTS:
- Use only the recommended dosage of half a capful twice a day
- Ensure your scalp is completely dry before applying
- Allow the foam to air dry before following your normal styling routine
- Follow the package insert for full directions and product information
To be sure ROGAINE® is right for you, always read and follow the label and package insert.
IT’S ALL ABOUT ROUTINE
Use ROGAINE® twice a day — once in the morning and once in the evening, about half an hour before bed. Try to think of it as a new part of your daily routine — like brushing your teeth. If you miss an application, just resume treatment as normal the next day — do not apply a double dose to make up for a missed one.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Hair growth is a naturally slow process, so it’s important to stay patient and stick to the routine. During the first 2-6 weeks after starting treatment, you may even notice you are losing hair. Don't panic – this is totally normal, and actually a good sign. It means your hair follicles are shifting from a resting phase to an active growing phase. This can cause new hair push out the older hairs. However, if hair loss continues for longer than 2 weeks, stop using ROGAINE® and talk to your doctor.
Results will vary from person to person. Clinical studies have shown that regrowth can occur as early as 8 weeks, but it may take up to 4 months for some people to start noticing results.
At first, your new hair will probably be soft, downy and barely visible. But after continued treatment, this new hair should become the same colour and thickness as the rest of your hair.
To continue to benefit from ROGAINE® products, you must use it twice a day, every day. If you stop, your new hair will likely disappear within 3 to 4 months and your hair loss process will start again. You'll simply go back to the pattern of hair loss you had before you started using ROGAINE® products.
