Regaine is a hair loss treatment product with formulas for both men and women. Usually, not marketed in the United States, Regaine can be found in countries like Great Britain, where it is produced, as well as other European countries and Australia.
Similar to Rogaine, Regaine’s active ingredient is minoxidil in either 2% or 5% concentrations. Women should use only the 2% or less concentration, while men may use the ”extra strength” 5% doses.
Regaine is a topical product used as a foam or gel. The active ingredient, minoxidil, helps stimulate blood flow and circulation to the scalp. The increased blood flow brings nutrients to the scalp, which inhibits the impact of DHT, a primary cause for genetic hair loss.
DHT causes hair follicles to shrink and ultimately stop producing hair. With minoxidil blocking the impact of DHT, the hair continues to grow at its normal cycle and pace, and it may even grow thicker.
Regaine is best used as a hair loss prevention product, instead of one that will trigger re-growth of lost hair. While most users enjoy the benefits of preventing further hair loss, a smaller group of users do experience re-growth in some hair follicles.
The use of minoxidil on the scalp may cause itchiness, dryness, or redness. In much fewer cases, the active ingredients may cause chest pain, faster heart rate, or dizziness, and users who experience these symptoms should consult a doctor.
Costs of Regaine
Costs for Regaine are about $80 dollars for a bottle of 2% minoxidil, while the 5% version generally costs a little more. Regaine is sold as Rogaine in America and is cheaper than the imported European brand.
Does Rogaine Work?
This is my review of Rogaine which I used to regrow my hair and achieve thicker, fuller, and healthier hair. Rogaine is amazing and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is balding, shedding, or thinning hair.
