How I Am Treating My Hereditary Hair Loss With Women's ROGAINE® Foam #rogainetruevolume #gotitfree




Sadly, at my age nobody is going to mistake me for Rapunzel. Back in the day- way, way back before I hit my 30's, I had long, uber thick hair. I remember getting frustrated that I couldn't even wrap a pony tail holder around my hair more than twice. Now, I'd give anything to be that frustrated with my hair again! Unfortunately, I'm one of the many women who are experiencing hereditary hair loss. Did you know that 1 in 3 women notice hair thinning in her lifetime? I had no idea it was that many! Female Pattern Hair Loss can start between puberty and the 20's with a second peak in the early 40's. I may be a little different because I really noticed an upswing in loss of strands once I hit my 30's, and it's all been going downhill from there. Most people lose between 50 - 100 hairs a day, which is normal hair loss. A consistent loss of 150 hairs a day is considered significant hair loss. If you are one of the 1 in 3 women who are noticing significant hair loss, don't panic! There are some tips and tricks to help achieve a fuller, thicker look.

There are 4 main signs of aging hair: loss of pigment, decrease in moisture and oil production, changes in texture and inactive follicles resulting in thinning and loss of density. I personally curl or wave my hair every day to give my hair a fuller appearance. Creating texture and volume is the key to hair that appears fuller. Cut and color are also wonderful tools to create dimension, enhance the hair you have and give a fuller appearance. Since hair changes in color and texture as we age, work with your stylist to create the best look for you. Also, I'm excited to be using Women's ROGAINE® Foam! I am optimistic it will help me achieve my goal of having a thick, full head of hair once again.

Women's ROGAINE® Foam 5% Minoxidil Topical Aerosol is the first and only FDA-approved , once daily application hair regrowth product exclusively for women experiencing hereditary hair loss. It contains 5% minoxidil, which is the only ingredient FDA-approved to regrow hair in women.

Women's Rogaine

I am in the process of using Women's ROGAINE® Foam to stimulate hair regrowth. Each evening, I massage the directed amount of foam into my scalp. The enhanced biodelivery system is designed to break down with my body heat to deposit actives on the scalp without residue. It's okay to use on my color treated hair, and can also be used on chemically treated (permed) hair. It can be applied to either dry or towel-dried hair, and can be used in conjunction with other styling products to easily fit into a beauty routine. It's odor-free, non-messy, does not leave any residue and does not weigh the hair down.

When massaged into the scalp, Women's ROGAINE® Foam 5% Minoxidil Topical Aerosol reactivates hair follicles and stimulates hair growth. Clinical studies show that with once daily use of Women's ROGAINE® Foam 5% Minoxidil Topical Aerosol for 24 weeks, 80% of women regrew hair, with initial results as early as 12 weeks and new hairs coming in up to 48% thicker than before. Continued use of Women's ROGAINE® Foam is required to maintain results.


Women's ROGAINE® Foam is currently available nationwide without a prescription. A 2 month supply has a retail of $29.99, or you can get a 4 month supply for $49.99. If you would like to try it for yourself, here is a current printable $5 off any 1 Women's Rogaine Foam!

    1. Ok, I have never heard of a garlic lotion to try to stimulate hair regrowth. I guess you were pretty confident no vampires were going to attack during that time :)

    2. yes, and no interested souls of either sex would attack either :)

  2. I wonder who counts each strand of hair to know if they lose 150 or not lol never knew the stats on it were that high. Good there is something one can do. I'm not bald yet, but some family members have been, so we shall see lol

    1. I don't count mine, but I take an estimate of how much I lose in the shower, then again how much I clean out of my brush after I am done styling my hair. Sadly, it does add up to close to 150 a day :(

  3. I always wondered if it even worked

    1. I know the Men's Rogaine worked for Jason. The problem with him is you have to be committed to using it all the time after you start, and he is awful about sticking to any kind of routine. I've only been using the women's for 2 weeks, so I haven't seen any difference yet, but I am confident that with continued use, I'll see results.

  5. You have gorgeous hair! I don't have issues now, but I know it runs in the family, so I will be needing it in my lifetime, for sure!

  6. I'll have to keep this in mind. I don't have any issues with thinning hair right now, but there are a couple of women in my family who have that problem, so I know it's a possibility.

  7. I don't have issues with thinning hair, but my husband does. I have asked if he wants to try Rogaine.

  8. I like that they have a Color Wheel. I don't color my hair, but I do teach Color Theory. I like all the colors you can color your hair with.

    My hair falls out during the switch of seasons. It's kind of thin anyhow.

  12. You have such pretty hair! I have really thick hair so I'm hoping I don't have an issue with this.

  13. This runs in the family and attacks indiscriminately. I'm very grateful it missed me, but I'll share the news with the other women in the family in case they see genetic baldness in their future. Meanwhile, you look great and I hope Rogaine works for you.

  17. I have always suffered from hair fall for the longest time. I guess I am just lucky that my hair grows back quickly. I will try Rogaine, maybe it will speed up the growth of new hair.

  18. Your hair looks fabulous and I never would imagine you suffer from hair loss. Having said that, it's so personal how we feel about these things and having a solution in Rogaine for women is great!

  19. You are really pretty and your hair looks gorgeous. I found out that Rogaine Foam works from the inside out to regrow hair! Rogaine actually causes the hair to grow out thicker!! How amazing.

  21. I have had thin hair since having children and find myself self conscious about it at times. I could not imagine actual hair loss and love that there is a practical solution available.

  22. Babies 1 & 2 were fine, but after Baby 3 I lost so much hair. I kept hoping it'd come back, but I think it's time to try something like this.

  23. I am 48 and I notice that my hair is thinning. I am going to check this out as I would love to have thicker hair again.

  24. I always wondered if it worked. I have a friend who has an issue with thinning hair. I'll have to send her this link.

  25. I have fine hair and have always had trouble with thinning in the front, but it's not hereditary as everyone else in my family has very thick hair, I pull mine into ponytails that are way too tight and work too many hours, so stress is a factor, I have used Nioxin successfully but have never tried Rogaine before so thanks for sharing your experiences with it.

  26. My hair has gotten really thin because of my thyroid. It's good to know I have a choice when it comes to products that really work. I will be keeping rogaine in mind.

  27. My grandmother on my mom's side had hair loss big time. I have always had hair similar to hers, so I wonder if I will have it too.

  28. I like that there is a product to grow hair for women.

  32. My sister was losing her hair quite a few years ago. I had her do a parasite cleanse and it went away but this would've been much easier.

  33. I am 21 and my hair always falls out. I don't know if it's because of hereditary or because I use to dye my hair so much!

  34. I've learned that the only once-daily hair regrowth treatment for women approved by the FDA, this formula is proven to help regrow hair in over 80% of women*, with clinical results in as little as 12 weeks and visible results with continuous daily use after 24 weeks.

  35. I am so glad Rogaine has a product to help women with hair loss. I can't wait to hear the results.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I didn't realize that extreme stress could cause hair thinning, I did know that giving birth was a possible cause, but that loss typically grows back. I was surprised to learn that it could begin in your 20's. I'll be watching for the signs since my mother has thinning hair. Wider part, harder time styling, and seeing mire hair on my pillow and drain.

  37. My girlfriend had weight loss surgery which one of the side effect is thinning hair. If Women's ROGAINE® can help people like my friend, that will be great.

    ReplyDelete
  38. There are so many women who suffer from hair thinning/loss and people don't realize that there are products like ROGAINE out there to help. I think it's so great that there are companies who bring products to the market to better lives of people, such as those suffering from thinning hair or hair loss. And omg, do you ever look like your youngest daughter in that picture!! lol You guys have the same smile ;)

    1. Funny you should say that Brandi, because Facebook thinks so too. It is sooo irritating when I try to tag her in photos and Facebook already has her tagged as ME! Every. Single. Time! lol

  39. I read through the instructions and they make a good point about the application process. They clarify that adding extra won't result in extra growth, it will just be a waste. It is good to know that because I think my wife would use extra.

  40. I learned Minoxidil revives the inactive follicles sitting near the scalp surface, nudging them from their resting phase (known as telogen) into their growth phase (known as anagen).

  41. I learned having a baby can cause hair thinning Rosanne rosans4@comcast.net

  42. My hair has always been fine, but as I've gotten older it has definitely thinned out.

  43. It's a reality that there is no remedy for hair reduction. So if you're building a hairless spot or your hair is loss a bit, nothing short a hair implant can deliver a long lasting solution.

  44. My hair has always been rather thick but my sister who has thinner hair has been losing her hair for years and it's now very very thin. I know she'd love to win something like this and if I won, I'd give it to her.

  51. I leaned that a woman has on average up to 100,000 strands of hair on her head. Lately I feel as if I only have about 100 strands of hair on my head which is so embarrassing.

  52. I learned that If you have hereditary hair loss (AGA), it will cause your hair follicles to shrink over time, wow

  53. I learned that most of the things I thought made my hair thin were in fact false, including extreme stress is not a factor for long-term hair loss.

  56. I learned on the Woman's Rogaine site that you might notice a little extra shedding within the first 2 weeks, as Rogaine is cleaning cleaning out old thinning hairs.

  57. I learned that if you are shedding an extra 50 strands of hair per day can be a sign of hair thinning.
