Same active ingredient at about half the price. Buy minoxidil, generic Rogaine, to treat male and female pattern baldness. It's clinically proven to work and been in use for over 30 years.
Male Pattern Baldness (MPB) is also known as androgenic alopecia because hair loss is triggered by an overly high concentration of the male hormone (androgen) dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the scalp. Female Pattern Baldness is also caused by overly high male androgens in the body.
DHT reduces blood and oxygen supply to hair follicles causing them to shrink, a process caused miniaturization. This prevents follicles from growing quality hair.
How Does Minoxidil Work?
- Minoxidil widens blood vessels and opens potassium channels on the scalp.1 Doing so allows more oxygen, blood, and nutrients to the follicles, enabling them to begin their function of growing hair again.
- Minoxidil also lengthens the hair growth cycle (anagen phase) in humans.1
In one 12-month, double-blind, randomized study, half of male participants who used 2% minoxidil grew hair of "moderate to dense thickness."2
Some men report that minoxidil helps regrow hair at the sides of their scalp also.
When used with other medications, minoxidil can also treat alopecia areata,2 an autoimmune disorder that affects males and females of all ages. Alopecia areata causes patchy hair loss on the scalp, face and on the body. The hair follicles remain alive, which is why the condition may respond to treatment.
What triggers the autoimmunity is not known but fortunately alopecia areata is usually treatable because it doesn't kill hair follicles.
Male Hair Loss vs Female Hair Loss
Male Pattern Baldness and Female Pattern Baldness appear differently. With men, hair loss begins at the top of the scalp and temples forming an M shape. In females, baldness usually begins at the top of the scalp with thinning of hair at the part.
Do All Men Lose Their Hair?
Yes, eventually all men will experience a degree of hair loss. It's not considered a medical illness, although the majority of men report that baldness causes anxiety and depression. According to the American Hair Loss Association:
- Male Pattern Baldness causes 95% of hair loss in men.
- Up to 85% of men have noticeable baldness by age 50.
- Two-thirds of men begin losing their hair by age 35.
Does Minoxidil Have Side Effects?
A temporary side effect of minoxidil may be initial hair loss (shedding), but that should be temporary.
Other brand names for minoxidil include Apo-Gain, Keranique and Women's Rogaine.
