This is a review for Women’s Rogaine Hair Regrowth Treatment, a topical foam which is designed to help women regrow hair and deliver results within 12 weeks by stimulating the hair follicle at the root. It claims to be the most effective topical over-the-counter treatment for hair regrowth available.
The main active ingredient in this product is 5% minoxidil. It is a known vasodilator, and also promotes hair growth while slowing loss. It does this by supporting and activating existing hair follicles and also encouraging resumed activity in inactive hair follicles. There is also a list of inactive ingredients found in this product including:
- Cetyl alcohol
- Butylated hydroxytoluene
- Citric acid
- Glycerol Anhydrous
- Lactic Acid
- Polysorbate 60
- Purified water
- SD Alcohol 40-B
- Stearyl Alcohol
These other ingredients add other benefits like moisture, gentle exfoliation, and other cosmetic purposes to make the liquid ingredients into the foam. None of these ingredients are certified organic, or non-GMO.
For best results, use on clean, towel-dried hair. Gently massage 1/2 a capful of the product directly onto the scalp, over the affected area. Let the product air dry before continuing with your styling routine. Consistency is key when using the product, as stopping use will cause hair loss to resume. Wash your hands very well after applying this product.
