Regaine FAQ's

regaine-faq-faq

If I use REGAINE® more often will it work faster?

No. Your hair won't grow any faster or better if you apply it more than twice a day and you increase the risk of side effects.

How long should I keep using REGAINE®?

You should keep using REGAINE for as long as you want to maintain the effect. If you stop using the product, you will lose the hair that grew back and will most likely revert to the previous pattern of hair loss.

What happens if I stop using REGAINE®? Will I keep my new hair?

No. If treatment is stopped, you will not only lose the hair that grew back, but you will most likely revert to your previous pattern of hair loss.

Will REGAINE® make my scalp more sensitive to the sun?

No. If you plan to be in the sun after applying REGAINE we recommend you use headwear.

Should I use a special shampoo while using REGAINE®?

It's not essential, but we do recommend using a gentle shampoo.

Do I have to wash my hair before applying REGAINE® and if so, how long should I wait afterwards before applying it?

You don't have to shampoo before applying REGAINE but if you do, make sure your scalp is completely dry before applying it. This is simply to ensure that REGAINE won't be diluted or evaporate before it has been fully absorbed.

Can I continue my normal hair care routine, using conditioners, wax, etc. while using REGAINE®?

You should continue your hair care routine as normal, but choose your haircare products carefully. Gentle shampoos and conditioners suitable to your hair type are best and always rinse them out thoroughly. If using any sprays, gels, wax or mousse, make sure the REGAINE you are using has completely dried.

Can I use a hair dryer while using REGAINE®?

You can use a hair dryer after shampooing, but REGAINE should be allowed to dry naturally. If you use it to dry the medication the heat will cause it to evaporate before being absorbed into the scalp.

How can I help to prevent the foam from turning into a liquid?

It is important when dispensing the foam that the can is held vertically straight upside down to avoid the mixture turning into a liquid. If the can is held horizontally then the propellant is released too quickly, resulting in excess Minoxidil liquid at the bottom of the can.

Can I use REGAINE® on a receding hair line?

Yes you can use REGAINE if your hair is receding as this is typically a sign of the early stages of hereditary hair loss.

What is ROGAINE Foam?

ROGAINE is sold in the U.S.A and is simply another trade name for REGAINE® . They are the same product and both are manufactured by Johnson & Johnson Limited.
