What are top 15 of the best hair growth products for men and women?

If you suffer from hair loss it can be distressing and socially limiting. You could just go to the nearest shop and ask about  “the best hair regrowth products” – but they would sell you what they had on the shelves – what the salesman sold them  – and it might not be the best one for you.

But obviously since you are reading this, you are someone that likes to make an informed choice, and you don’t want just any hair growth product, you want the best hair growth product possible to solve YOUR problem.

The interactive chart of the best hair growth products below and the analysis that follows will help you decide what the best product is for you.

Minoxydil is mentioned a few times in this chart – for an explanation of what this is see Causes and treatment of hair loss.

Review of the top 5 of the best hair growth products for men and women

 

Most of the products included above are excellent options; but there are a few that stand  out as our favorites.  Below you will find our top 5 picks  overall for the best hair growth products for men and women along with  a more detailed review of each.  So, lets have a closer look at these options.

 

Kirkland Minoxidil For MEN Hair Growth Treatment Unscented 6 Month Supply Topical Aerosol 5% (FOAM)

the-best-hair-growth-products-for-men-kirkland-foam

 Based on overall rating, ease of use, and effective ingredient, Kirkland Minoxidil Foam is certainly one of the best hair growth products for men. It contains Minoxidil which is the main ingredient in all the best hair regrowth products and, as this is a product for men, it has the full 5% concentration which is the most effective.

Being a foam means it can be applied easilyy without running down your face or neck and can be applied exactly where you want it. The foam needs to be applied twice a day and soon dries to become un-noticeable.

Minoxidil products need to be used for around 4 to 6 months for best hair regrowth and then use must be continued to maintain that level of hair regrowth.

This product comes in a 6 month supply which will encourage you to continue for the time necessary to see results.

This is a product for men only due to the high concentration of Minoxidil.

Rogaine Foam 3 Month Supply

the-best-hair-growth-products-for-men-rogaine-foam-large

 

This is undeniably more expensive than the Kirkland product but it does come with the well known and well respected Rogaine name – probably the first name you will think of when considering what are the best hair growth products.

It is also a foam and all reports are that it is extremely easy to apply and that it dries very quickly indeed to make application a speedy part of your normal routine.

The main ingredient is Minoxidil at 5% concentration.

Again it must be used for several months to see best hair regrowth but many users report very good results after only 4 months.

This product should only be used by men – Rogaine produce specific products for women with a lower concentration of Minoxidil.

Rogaine for Women Hair Regrowth Treatment 3- 2 ounce bottles

the-best-hair-growth-products-for-men-rogaine-for-women-large

 

This deserves its place as one of the best hair growth products as it is specifically tailored to enable women to use it safely.

It contains Minoxidil but only at 2% as this is safer for womenn and will not lead to the side effects they can experience from the more concentrated 5% product which is suitable for men.

Rogaine is the only brand proven safe for women and is dermatologist recommended as one of the best hair regrowth products.

This needs to be applied directly to the scalp twice a day. Once the product is dry it is quite alright to use your normal mouse, gel or spray just so long as you make sure to apply to the hair rather than the scalp.

This pack contains 3 months’ supply of product.
