Today’s post is a little different than usual. It’s in answer to requests from several readers who share my struggle with thinning hair. I’ve discussed my hair loss journey with you many times because if you suffer from hair loss, I want you to know you are not alone. It can destroy a women’s confidence and those who suffer, need answers.
I have Thyroid issues which cause it to cycle between hyper and hypo and wreak havoc on my hair. My hair goes through periods of intense shedding followed by slow regrowth. My physician suggested I try 5% Rogaine for men, to slow the thinning and encourage regrowth. It’s been very helpful.
Many of you have asked me how I apply Rogaine so I thought it might be helpful to show you. Here is a little video demonstrating how I apply it.
The active ingredient in Rogaine is Minoxidil which is available in many products. I’ve tried several brands and various strengths but always come back to Rogaine’s 5% version for men which my physician originally suggested to me.
I’ve found the best pricing on Amazon and order 3 bottles every 3 months. If you stop using Rogaine, the new hair will fall out so I plan to continue using it to maintain my hair.
I hope this is helpful and thanks for sharing your struggles with me.
