About Rogaine (Minoxidil) as cure for baldness

There is currently no cure for baldness. There are some hair loss products that can help slow down the process but there is no cure for the most common type of hair loss called male pattern baldness.

Male-pattern baldness typically occurs in men between 20 and 45 because of high levels of androgens, such as testosterone and dihydroxy-testosterone (DHT).  Androgenic alopecia develops as a gradual reduction in hair follicle size and shorter cycles in the active growth phase.  There are two drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration and are shown to have some positive effect on balding, Finasteride and Minoxidil. The 5-alpha-reductace inhibitors medical drugs Finasteride and Minoxidil are most widely used as medical hair loss treatments for men. 

Minoxidil as Rogaine Hair Growth Topical Drug

Rogaine is another hair growth topical drug used for hair loss treatment that is now available over-the-counter. Minoxidil is the active ingredient in the prescribed medication Rogaine and was originally used to treat high blood pressure as a blood vessel dilating agent. Treatments call for Rogaine to be applied twice a day or any hair re-growth will fall out.  It is necessary to use Rogaine for about 3 to 4 months to see evidence of re-growth. Any hair re-growth is in the form of a peach-fuzz baby hair which will not necessarily look consistent with the rest of the head of hair. A generic version of the drug is Headway which is cheaper, making Minoxidil more affordable. ​
