Man in Space Experienced Member. Its totally variable. Some people dont even shed. My shed wasnt terrible but i was definately losing more than before, it was quite evident to me as i am a slow receder and had never really shed before. I have an otherwise full head of hair aside from thin patches in my hairline and they went vitually bald but they were very thin before. A few people who have known me for years during this time asked me if i was receding, it may just have been a coincidence as i had a dodgy haircut at the time that did not help.

The hairs have though come back thicker and darker plus ive regrown new ones. Now people are commenting on my hair looking good and it is falling better with the new hair so i guess in my case it was kind of noticible. Are you on it or thinking about using it? I've been thinking about using it for the thin hair on the top of my head. Im just worried about the shedding part.

Well good luck whatever you decide.And while a hair transplant may seem like the only permanent solution to your hair loss, depending on your condition, medical treatments like Rogaine Minoxidil can have incredible results when used properly. Minoxidil is a topical solution applied directly to the affected area. We know that it dilates blood vessels in the scalp which improve blood flow, but the precise mechanisms on how it promotes hair growth are not completely understood.

While it is very effective in most cases at treating hair loss, many patients have discussed their concerns with us after starting treatment that they are noticing more hair falling out instead of less. We know that hair loss can be a difficult thing to deal with, and when you start a treatment that is supposed to prevent it, and instead you notice the opposite effects happening, it can be very concerning, even alarming. The short answer is, no, your Rogaine treatment is not causing you to lose more hair than before, and it will not make it worse than it would be in the future.

Rogaine is a topical medication applied directly to the scalp to help promote hair growth. It comes in the form of a foam or liquid solution. So how exactly does it work?

Thanks to a combination of hormones, hereditary factors and aging, your hair follicles get thinner over time. This leads to shorter and finer hair growing in during each hair growth cycle, until there may be no growth at all. The minoxidil in Rogaine works by unknown mechanisms to counteract the shrinking of your hair follicles by extending the growth cycle anagen phase and therefore decreasing the shedding cycle of your hair telogen phase.

It also helps to increase the blood flow to the areas of your scalp where your hair grows, thus bringing essential nutrients and oxygen for overall health hair to the scalp where applied. Though the finer details about how minoxidil actually works are not fully understood, we do know that the medication needs to go through an activation process in your body in order to promote hair growth.

Enzymes in your body have to convert it into minoxidil sulphate. In studies, this enzyme activity was higher in men who responded to minoxidil compared to those who did not respond.

Interestingly, a recent article reports that salicylate, which is found in aspirin, can inhibit sulfotransferase. In regards to side effects, Minoxidil does not affect your hormones like Finasteride, but can Rogaine really make your hair loss worse?

When Rogaine boosts hair growth, it pushes out the smaller finer hairs that were already on their way to being shed. As your thin, fine hairs begin shedding, thicker hairs will soon take their place. If you stop using Rogaine, any progress you make with your hair growth will revert back to where they would be without the medication. As long as you continue to treat your hair with the Rogaine, you should start to see improved hair growth in about four months.

Remember, it takes time to grow your hair naturally. Give Rogaine the time it needs to provide your scalp with thicker and stronger hair. Many studies have shown the effectiveness of Rogaine Minoxidil as a treatment for hair loss. In the picture above, a female patient was very frightened when she began using minoxidil and experienced hair shedding.

THE PROBLEM WITH ROGAINE/MINOXIDIL - Why I'm Getting a Hair Transplant!

But, as you can see, she stuck with her routine of using the medication daily and saw her hair mass index go up four points after just two months of treatment!

So can Rogaine actually make your hair loss worse? Again, the short answer is no. Finasteride which goes by the brand name Propecia or Proscar is another very popular topical hair loss treatment option.

Unlike minoxidil, which does not target the hormones in your body, Finasteride works by preventing testosterone from being converted into DHT in the prostate, hair follicles and glands.

DHT is the active form of testosterone that causes hair loss. By inhibiting DHT, the goal is to help slow down and prevent future hair loss from occurring. While Minoxidil and Finasteride both have a common end goal, they both work in completely different ways.

And while one may work for someone else, it may not be as effective for you. Which is why it is always important to discuss all of the options with your doctor before making a decision.

In hereditary hair loss, a combination of heredity, hormones, and age causes a progressive shrinking, or miniaturization, of certain scalp follicles. This causes a shortening of the hair's growing cycle. Over time, as the active hair growth phase becomes shorter, the resting phase becomes longer.

Eventually, there may be no growth at all. By enlarging miniaturized follicles, the growth phase of the hair cycle is prolonged, allowing the hair to become longer and thicker looking. And with more follicles in the growth phase at the same time, it is possible to see improved coverage of the scalp.

Because it's a foam, not a solution, it is applied differently. Some people may experience a dry, itchy scalp and irritation more common with solution than foam. Did you know that some medications can cause hair loss? Find out more from hair loss and regrowth expert Dr. Robert Leonard.

It may take at least 4 months for results to be seen. If you do not see any results after 4 months, speak with your doctor. Step 1: Use the thumb and forefinger of one hand to hold the white plastic ring securely you'll find the white plastic ring around the neck of the container, just below the translucent cap.

Step 2: While holding the ring in place, use your other hand to twist the translucent cap until the arrow on the white plastic ring lines up with the arrow on the translucent cap. For example, during the first few weeks of use, there may be a temporary increase in hair shedding. This is a good sign and means that the new growth cycle is beginning, and the older hairs you may have lost are making way for the new healthy ones. Eventually, new growth will appear. This occurs in some people as the new hair pushes out the older hairs, when the hair follicle shifts into the growth phase.

It is very much like losing baby teeth to make room for adult teeth. This increase in shedding is only temporary and should subside within a couple of weeks with continued treatment. Please note, however, if increased shedding continues for longer than 2 weeks, you should consult your doctor to rule out other possible medical problems.Minoxidil is a topical solution that was first developed to treat high blood pressure, also known as hypertension 1.

The drug, previously a tablet known by the brand name Loniten, is a vasodilator which means it widens the blood vessels. Loniten was soon being prescribed by physicians for the off-brand use of treating hair loss, though the drug soon gained FDA approval as a hair loss treatment in 2. Rogaine and its generic form, minoxidil, have been used for decades in the treatment of hair thinning and balding. There is still some debate as to the true cause of pattern hair loss, but the majority of researchers agree on one thing — the androgen hormone DHT certainly plays a role.

This hormone is largely responsible for the development of secondary sex characteristics in males, and it plays a large role in puberty 4. But interestingly enough, this hormone which plays such a significant role in development may also be responsible for hair loss in those with AGA.

Androgenetic alopecia is an inherited condition that leads to hairline recession and premature balding. There are many contributors to the progression of the disease, but DHT is perhaps the most prominent.

DHT naturally attaches to the hair follicles, but for those with pattern hair loss, this can trigger inflammation. If the inflammation is left untreated, it will lead to the miniaturization of the hair follicle which ultimately causes shedding and hair loss 5.

But DHT blockers have many side effects, most of which are sexual in nature 6. This enables the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the follicles. But minoxidil has also been shown to open potassium channels and it can even upregulate growth factors 89. Potassium channels are proteins that allow for the passing of potassium ions across the cell membrane. These channels have been linked to the regulation of hair growth In this way, then, minoxidil is able to regulate the potassium content of the hair follicle and contribute to the hair growth process Rogaine and its many generic derivatives are topical solutions that are available in either liquid or foam formulations.

To use, apply the solution to your scalp. Use your fingertips to rub it in, and then rinse your hands thoroughly. As with any drugs, there is a risk of side effects. One common effect of minoxidil, especially in the first few months of use, is shedding. And while this may seem counterintuitive for a hair loss treatment drug, it makes sense if you know the reason for it.

As the hair grows, it goes through three stages: anagen, categen, and telogen However, those with AGA have an excessive number of follicles in telogen resting phase. When you begin to use minoxidil or really implement any new hair regimenyou will be pushing a large number of telogen hairs through to anagen. And this requires those telogen hairs to shed.

The shedding will typically occur two to eight weeks after you have begun using minoxidil During the average hair cycle, a person will shed anywhere from to hairs per day. This is because there are always follicles in telogen phase.

If the increase in shedding continue beyond eight weeks, it may be time to cease minoxidil use even if only temporarily. You may be surprised to know that, even during the shedding period, minoxidil is already working within the scalp to improve conditions. For many, though, the true sign that the drug is working is hair growth. You may see results sooner, though, such as the 26 percent of men who reported moderate to dense regrowth after just four months However, there are steps you can take to lessen its impact or at least speed along the process.I love reading these comments.

Understanding Shedding and Hair Loss Treatment

I started loosing my hair about 3 months ago. My family doctor recommended I go see a dermatology. Dermatology told me to use Rogaine for women. I had to stop after a few weeks as I noticed i was loosing more hair. Than I had the biopsy done. Now he is telling me to use Rogaine for men!

What to do? Need your help please? Did you recently go on or off birth control pills or any other medication?

Rogaine Shedding: What It Is, and What You Can Expect

It is not uncommon at all to start shedding more hair after beginning any hair loss treatment such as Rogaine. The hair shedding should be temporary. After a months if the treatment works, new hair should begin to grow, hair growth works in cycles.

When Rogaine causes hair shedding it may induce the hair shaft to fall off, the follicle would then enter a dormant phase in the cycle temporarily while the matrix is restructured for future growth, hopefully with a thicker and stronger hair shaft. In the meantime through you may lose more hair, but after waiting for several months you may have thicker and stronger hair with any new hair growth, assuming the Rogaine works.

As was my case, on top of that I was left with an itchy oily scalp. What did the biopsy reveal? Rogaine for women and Rogaine for men is the same thing, the main difference is the strength of the product. I think you should see another doctor and get a second opinion before jumping into anything. There are plethora of factors that cause women to lose their hair, and sometimes it is just temporary. I have heard a lot of complaints from women who say that their doctor knew nothing, rushed them in and out of the office and shoved a bottle of Rogaine them.

When you are suffering from hair loss, you might also want to see a nutritionalist, endocrinologist, allergist and a family doctor. Any tests that were done or whatever records you have should be with you at all times when visiting with these doctors. Things will go wrong in any given situation, if you give them a chance…anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

Using Rogaine for a day may even cause excessive hair loss. I noticed my hair loss worsened once I stopped using Rogaine. Some dermatologists recommend using Rogaine with Spironolactone, birth control and other combinations to lessen the chances of risking more hair. I think you really need to know what you are lacking as far as nutrients to have a complete thorough assessment and knowledge of your hair loss.

I keep reading conflicting reports of Spironolactone — some say it increases hair loss, others say it helps with hair loss. Are both true?? Hi Beth, the truth is every effective hair loss treatment can cause you to shed and depending on who you ask every hair loss treatment will have its proponents and opponents as well.

It really depends on the person, for myself, I did experience increased shedding upon beginning Aldactone brand name of spironolactone but it did subside after a few months. It is my understanding that it all depends at what point you are catching the hair cycle when you begin the medication. If your hair is on the uptake and a lot of the hair follicles are going into an anagen phase then there is a good chance that the medication will just help improve that process, however, if you are in a catagen or active telogen phase it could expedite that as well and increase shedding.

Hi Beth, If you can, keep us posted on your progress with Spironolactone.Shedding, Shedding, Shedding!

What should I do? There are two big mistakes people usually make when using minoxidil hair loss products. One is that people stop using minoxidil too soon. A lot of people think minoxidil products does not work for them as they do not see any difference after using it for 1 or 2 months.

Pagina 1

The fact is that it typically takes 2 to 4 months to see obvious regrowth. The other mistake people usually make is that they get panicked and stop using the product after seeing increased hair loss.

People should know that hair grows in a cyclical nature. The growth phase anagen of scalp hair lasts four to seven years. Then the hair follicle goes into a resting phase telogen that lasts approximately three months.

It is very much like losing baby teeth to make room for adult teeth. When you start Minoxidil, some of the hair follicles may be shifted from the telogen phase into the anagen phase resulting in a temporary increase in shedding. Thus, it is not uncommon to see a temporary increase in shedding during the first two to three weeks using Minoxidil products. This increase in shedding is only temporary and should subside within a couple of weeks with continued treatment.

Please note, however, if increased shedding continues for longer than 4 weeks, you should consult your own physician to rule out other possible medical conditions. Not everyone who is responding to minoxidil products will have the minoxidil initial shedding. Usually those who had the more intense shedding will have the better regrowth later with continuous use of minoxidil products. There is no evidence that is true based on our experience. We are not sure if that happens to everyone.

However, that does happen to someone.Remember Me? Last Jump to page: Results 1 to 10 of Thread: Will your hair you shed while using Rogaine grow back? Will your hair you shed while using Rogaine grow back? About two and a half months ago, I 25 year old male noticed I was slightly thinning out on the top of my head.

Ford mustang frames diagram diagram base website frames

I decided to try rogaine foam. I applied it to the front, mid and crown of my head. About a week or so later I noticed that I was really starting to thin out on the top of my head but mainly in the front. I got online, read alot of information about rogaine foam, and found about half and half of really good results or miserable results.

Some people said that Rogaine was growing hairs back for them never mentioning a shed of any sortand some people were saying that Rogaine caused them to lose lots of hair that never came back for them. I quit using the Rogaine on the front and mid of my scalp after a week or so, but now I have a fear that I've permanently damaged the front of my hair, which doesn't make any sense to me since Rogaine is FDA approved.

And I couldn't see how there wouldn't be a disclaimer in the Rogaine package that would say something along the lines of "Caution; if you start using this product there is a chance that you won't regrow the hair that Rogaine has caused you to shed. I heard it can take at least three to four months before that hair that shed would start to grow again, but waiting it out is killing me.

I've never had a problem with my hair my entire life, except I straightened it earlier this year I normally have wavy hairand could tell I had started to thin out a little. I took rogaine foam for about a week or so and it devestated my hairline. He basically called me a liar. But I have heard the same scenario with a number of people online.

I just can't believe that if Rogaine has the potential to do that, that a bigger deal is not made of the possibility that can totally devesate your hairline. Anyone can buy Rogaine at Wal Mart! That's just crazy to me if it could cause you to shed hair that won't ever grow back.

I've seen hair doctors online throw out "give rogaine a try! And I've seen numerous hair doctors online actually say it's worth trying on the hairline. Also, does anyone have an idea about how long it takes for your hair to become dependent on the Rogaine? I want to quit using it on my crown I've started taking propecia a month ago, and I've been using Rogaine on the crown for roughly three months.

I'm depressed by the whole situation. Rogaine completely messed up my hairline after only 1month of use. I had to stop using Rogaine due to medical reasons. I have been off of Rogaine for 2months now and my hairline has not grown back. My hair is thinner than ever. Any comments would be greatly appreciated Danger, Hey man. I'm three months removed from using Rogaine foam on my hairline and I have yet to really see any regrowth, at least any that is noticable to me.

My best guess is to check into getting on Propecia to help slow down, stop, or maybe even reverse your hair loss, and to sit tight as far as the hair regrowth goes. That's about all I can do right now as well. I totally understand about being depressed, or being down. I have had many of the same feelings as well over the past few months. Every day is a work in progress. How is treatment with Propecia going? Did you experience a major shed with Propecia? I'm worried of experiencing another major shed.
