Since normal hair usually grows half an inch per month, hair regrowth with REGAINE® for Women Foam also takes time. Results with once daily use of REGAINE® for Women Foam may be seen as early as 12 weeks, though for some women it may take at least 24 weeks for results to be seen. If you do not see any results after 24 weeks of once daily use of the foam, stop using REGAINE® for Women Foam and talk to your doctor.
There are a few signs that let you know REGAINE® foam is working to reactivate your hair follicles. For example, during week 2 to week 6 of use, there may be a temporary increase in hair shedding that lasts up to 2 weeks. This increase in hair shedding is to be expected and is temporary; it is a sign that a new growth cycle is beginning and the older hairs you would have lost anyway are making way for new hair. If shedding persists for more than two weeks, stop using this product and consult your doctor.
REGAINE® foam stimulates hair follicles to shift from the resting phase to the growth phase. As part of this process, it is not uncommon to see a temporary increase in shedding during weeks 2 to week 6 of use, as older hairs are shed to make way for newer actively growing hairs. If increased shedding continues for more than two weeks, you should stop using the product and consult your doctor to rule out other possible medical problems.
Hair growth may be soft and downy at the start but should eventually become the same as normal hair.
Once hair has begun to regrow, you need to continue using REGAINE® for Women Foam for the growth to continue. If you stop using it the treatment benefits will be lost.
