Rogaine Extra Strength 5% Minoxidil is the improved version of 2% Minoxidil topical solution. Thus, this product will definitely have more results than the original concentration of Minoxidil. In fact, it has been reported that Regaine Extra Strength 5% Minoxidil has grown 45% more hair than the 2% solution. This is why, even though you may have originally thought to discard this product, you should at least give it a chance.
Rogaine hair growth product was originally created for treating heart diseases. Yet, once doctors confirmed that it causes hair regrowth, Rogaine was used for treating hair loss and stimulating hair growth. With only 20 drops applied on the area to be treated, the hair will stop falling and the hair revival process will begin. However, it is highly important that you apply the product each and every day, twice per day using the specified quantity. Applying a larger quantity of product on your scalp will not speed up the process or increase the amount of hair you grow, but it may rapidly lead you towards unwanted side effects, such as itching or redness. Also, nausea, vomiting, alert blood pressure and dizziness may occur in case a larger quantity is used.
Regaine Extra Strength 5% Minoxidil is available in two forms: a topical solution and a foam, each of them for external use only. Their effects are basically the same: at first, there will be some soft, barely visible and uncolored hair appearing on the patches of skin where there was no hair. Then this hair will turn into thick, colored hair just like the one you once had. However, for the hair loss treatment to be successful the product must be continued for few months (their actual number depending from individual to individual).
It is not recommended to apply the product on irritated or sunburnt skin. Also, pregnant women or mothers who breastfeed are advised to ask for their doctor’s advice before starting the treatment. People with allergies, liver or kidney problems as well as other medical conditions should also consult their doctor to see if it is suitable for them or not.
