It works in all areas of the scalp. Men's Rogaine Extra Strength Hair Regrowth Treatment, Unscented offers a scientific, FDA-approved method of hair restoration for men suffering from classic androgenetic alopecia (AGA).
The active ingredient in ROGAINE, minoxidil, reactivates your hair's natural growth cycle by reinvigorating hair follicles that are shrunken due to hereditary hair loss. Over time, rogaine will reduce your hair loss and regrow natural, thicker-looking hair.
When you start on Rogaine, your hair will most likely go through a period where it gets thinner before it gets thicker. Do not drop the treatment. Shedding is a sign that it works.
When the follicle is being affected by something that benefits it, it shuts down the production of the current hair and begins producing a new one. This is typically during the first three months on the treatment. When this happens in large quantities, it results in thinner hair from Month 1 to Month 3. This is normal. Expect it and ride it out, or you will never see success.
Success begins around Month 6, and will top out at the two-year mark. Losing hair is a slow process and it's a slow process to regain it
