IS REGAINE® FOR WOMEN FOAM RIGHT FOR ME?

REGAINE® for Women Foam is used to treat female pattern hair loss in women aged 18 to 65.

The checklist below highlights the signs of female pattern hair loss:

  • Male or female members of your immediate or extended family have experienced hair loss.
  • You have noticed a gradual hair loss of the hair on the top of your scalp, which may be most noticeable around the part and sometimes may be more extensive near the front of the scalp. It forms a pattern similar to the shape of an evergreen tree. 
  • Your women’s hair loss resembles the images shown below:

If one or more of these points apply to you, then you should consider using REGAINE® for Women Foam. If there is no family history of gradual hair loss, or your hair loss is patchy, see your doctor.

How is REGAINE® for Women Foam different from cosmetic thickening products?

Unlike products that just temporarily coat hair, REGAINE® for Women Foam reactivates inactive hair follicles to stimulate hair regrowth from the roots. It’s also the only clinically proven foam treatment for women.

Does REGAINE® for Women Foam work?

REGAINE® for Women Foam is clinically proven to regrow hair in more than 80% of women.

Can I use REGAINE® for Women Foam on colour-treated hair?

Yes, there is no need to change your hair styling routine. However, you should tell your hair care professional that you are using REGAINE® for Women Foam.

Does REGAINE® for Women Foam contain hormones?

No. Minoxidil, the active ingredient in REGAINE® for Women Foam is a non-hormonal topical hair regrowth treatment. Applied to the scalp, it renews your hair’s growth cycle and reactivates shrunken hair follicles caused by female pattern hair loss. 

Does REGAINE® for Women Foam really make your hair fall out at first?

Not the way you might think. During weeks 2 to 6 of use, you may notice a temporary increase in hair loss. This temporary shedding is a good sign, and happens because a new growth cycle is beginning. It can be frustrating, but it should subside with continued treatment, allowing you to see new growth. However, if increased shedding persists for more than 2 weeks, stop using the product and consult your doctor to rule out other possible causes of hair loss or medical issues.

How often do you have to apply REGAINE® for Women Foam?

Consistency is the key to success with REGAINE® for women and, as you only need to apply it once per day, it fits easily into your existing daily routine.

What happens if you stop using REGAINE® for Women Foam?

You’ll need to continue using REGAINE® for Women Foam to maintain your hair’s regrowth. If you stop using it, the benefits will be lost.

How is REGAINE® for Women Foam different than REGAINE® for Men Foam?

The product’s safety and effectiveness profile was demonstrated in clinical studies of once daily use in women experiencing female pattern hair loss. In contrast, REGAINE® for Men Foam is a twice daily hair regrowth treatment indicated and labeled specifically for men.

As always, we recommend following the labeled dosage when using any REGAINE® Minoxidil product.
