  • What is hair loss?

    During a normal day, people can lose between 50 and 100 hairs from their scalp. It is hard to notice this because new hair is always growing and replacing the hair we lose. Hair loss happens when the new hair cannot replace the hair that falls out. The medical term for hair loss is alopecia. 

    The most common cause of hair loss in men is called androgenetic alopecia (also called androgenic alopecia). In men, it is known as male pattern baldness or male pattern hair loss. It becomes more common with increasing age and it will affect about 80% of men over their lifetime. While hair loss in men aged over 40 is more common, it can begin as early as the late teens or 20s.

    Male pattern hair loss is due to a combination of hormones, called androgens, and genetics. If you have a family history of hair loss, you may be more likely to carry genes that put you at risk of experiencing hair loss. This is why the age it starts for each man can vary so drastically.

    Male pattern baldness usually starts with hair loss at the front and sides of the scalp which progresses towards the back of the head. If you find you have sudden, patchy hair loss or more hair loss than usual, speak to your GP. There may be other conditions associated with your hair loss.

  • How does it work?

    The active ingredient in Regaine is minoxidil.

    It is believed to work by increasing the supply of blood and nutrients to the hair follicle. This helps strengthen existing hair and in some cases can stimulate secondary growth. It is thought to reverse the hair loss process by increasing the diameter of the hair shaft. It is also thought to stimulate and prolong the ‘growth’ phase of hairs.

    In the early stages of Regaine use it stimulates the follicle to moe into the growth phase, causing old hairs to fall out, making way for new thicker hairs – so don't worry if hair loss increases for a very short time at first.

  • How long does Regaine take to work?

    Hair regrowth may occur as early as 8 weeks after starting Regaine. This can vary from person to person and it can take up to 16 weeks to get visible results for hair loss. Progression of hair loss before treatment is a factor in how successful treatment may be. Catching hair loss early with treatment will usually allow for faster and stronger results.
