Top Pick from the Best Hair Regrowth Products – Men

the-very-best-hair-regrowth-products-kirkland

 

This product definitely gets our vote as the Top Pick for men from the best hair regrowth products we have reviewed.

It contains 5% Minoxidil which is the highest concentration which can be used by men and is the active ingredient most clinically proven to halt hair loss and promote best hair regrowth. The product information does say that it will be effective in around 85% of men using it correctly.

As well as blocking the action of DHT, Minoxidil helps to allow more oxygen and nutrients in the blood to reach the hair follicles. This may initially cause follicles to enter the telogen phase where they shed hair but this is then replaced by new, thicker hair in the new growing (anagen) phase.

This means that for the first couple of months MORE rather than less hair loss may be experienced. This does not mean it is not working but that it IS. Soon this hair  loss will be replaced by new and thicker hair. Those follicles which were already in the resting phase or had stopped producing hair will at the same time begin to become larger and to produce new hair.

 

More than 80% of customers reviewing this product on Amazon.com gave it 4 or 5 stars out of 5.

Some of their comments included:

“I’ve been using this product for about 5 months now, (on my last bottle) and I have seen hair to sprout on the front of my head and in the temple region, (where I’ve been noticing thinning the most). I’m 24 years old, so if you still have a little hair in that region, it will most likely grow back! My hair is noticeably thicker!”

“I started using minoxidil foam for the first time in late August. Two months later, the regrowth is clearly visible.”

“Minoxidil does add a new hair growth to the crown of my head. It takes between three and four months to see the first new hair. I have used it for about four years.”

The main reason for dissatisfaction among the small number of bad reviews was that it is for treating male pattern baldness only and they felt this was not made clear to them before purchase.

The product  does not claim to treat other forms of hair loss although it can be very effective in treating telogen effluvium, especially if the trigger cannot be found and removed.

This product is cheaper than others on the market which may claim to be the best products for hair growth but it offers the same active ingredient and as it comes in an aerosol foam it is quick and easy to apply. It dries to be invisible in a short space of time and hair styling products can then be used on top of it.

It is used twice a day and use must be continued to maintain hair regrowth. Best hair regrowth is seen after six or seven months.

For all these reasons this is our Top Pick for men from the best hair regrowth products available.

Top Pick from the Best Hair Regrowth Products – Women

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

It contains 2% Minoxidil which is the highest concentration which is recommended to be  used by women and is the active ingredient most clinically proven to halt hair loss and promote best hair regrowth. Because it is connected to male  hormones 5% minoxidil is considered too high a concentration for use by women.

It is a liquid so can be applied easily directly to the area of scalp to be treated. Unlike men who may have less hair in general and find foam an easier product to use, the liquid works well for women and is not offered in a foam.

While hair loss can be very distressing for men it can often be even more devastating for women as society places so much regard on how women, in particular,  look.

 On average a women is born with around 100,000 hair follicles on her head which will remain for all her life. Most women lose around 50 to 100 a day which will be replaced in the normal hair growth and loss cycle. But if you suffer from hereditary female pattern hair loss this may increase to about 150 a day and these extra hairs lost are not replaced. Your hair begins to look thinner and you may struggle to find a style which suits you.

As with the product for men there may be some initial increase in hair loss but this mean that the product IS working so you need to persevere. As with men this will not be effective in all cases but the product claims to be effective in around 85% of women using it correctly.

Best hair regrowth occurs after around 6 months of use and product use must be continued to maintain this regrowth.

 

Over 75% of customers reviewing this product on Amazon.com   gave it 5 or 4 stars out of 5.

 

Some of their comments included:

“My hair at 68 years old was getting thin in spots. I started using this product and, I not kidding, I now have nice thick hair again. It took about six weeks but was well worth the wait.I highly recommend Rogaine for Women Hair Regrowth Treatment.”

 

“African-American female mid-40s. My hair was thinning in the front with a very noticeable bald spot forming on the right side. I’ve always had really thick and healthy hair so I’m assuming the cause is the start of menopause and stress (work, home, etc.). Having had a “head full of hair” all of my life starting to go bald was really distressing!! It’s bad enough for men to lose their hair but for us women, our hair really is our crowning glory! To start to lose it feels tragic.I really wasn’t too optimistic about this working because it seems things like this never work for me and usually the test group for these sorts of things don’t include women of color – aren’t even designed for women of color! But I thought I’d give it a try and what do you know?  It worked!  It actually works!   It really worked! But be aware; you must have patience.”

 

“I was skeptical but after just 30 days of use, I have new hair growth. I used to spend so much time trying to style my hair to make it look thicker and now I am ready in 10 minutes. My hair stylist who has been doing my hair for years said that I have at least 25% more hair than I had before!!”

Of the customers giving a low score several had given up after just a month or two because of increasing hair loss – which is a normal part of this treatment at the beginning.

A small number had experienced unacceptable side effects – itching, rashes or growth of facial hair. As with any medicinal product a very small  number had had medical side effects – so read the information leaflet and check with your GP if you are unsure.

 

There are many products  which may claim to be the best products for hair growth but this offers the same active ingredient in a special formulation for women. It dries to be invisible in a short space of time and hair styling products can then be used on top of it.

It is used twice a day and use must be continued to maintain hair regrowth. Best hair regrowth is seen after six or seven months.

For all these reasons this is our Top Pick for women from the best hair regrowth products available.
