Hereditary hair loss can be effectively treated with REGAINE Solution. REGAINE is scientifically proven to help stop and even reverse hair loss as it contains Minoxidil, the only ingredient available over the counter which has been clinically proven to treat and even reverse the effects of hereditary baldness. Minoxidil was discovered during clinical trials for a treatment for high blood pressure and hair growth was noted as a side effect. Minoxidil works by increasing the blood supply and thereby the nutrient level to the hair follicles on the scalp, helping to stimulate hair growth. Increased blood flow to the hair follicles increases follicular size and hair shaft diameter, stimulating and prolonging hair growth. Minoxidil has also been shown to help prevent further hair loss in four out of five men, helping to stimulate regrowth for a thicker, fuller head of hair. REGAINE® works best in men with recent hair loss who are showing signs of thinning on the top of the head but it can also be used by men who are developing a receding hairline.
Hair loss is very common and as many as eight million men in the UK experience hair loss. Around 40% of men experience some hair loss by the age of thirty-five.
Most of the time, hair loss is hereditary and you may have looked at other members of your family and noticed that your hair is following a similar pattern to theirs. The gene can be passed down from either side of the family. Stress can be relevant but stress in itself does not cause male baldness. Hair loss and thinning may first be noticed from the crown of the head and possibly also from the hairline at the front, described as a receding hairline. If you notice that your brush or comb is removing more hair than usual, often first noticed with an increase in hair in the plughole, then these are possible indications of the start of male pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia as it is termed medically.
On average, the adult head has one hundred thousand individual strands of hair and most people will shed between forty and one hundred and twenty of these per day as part of normal every day hair loss and a healthy re-growth cycle. Hair grows in cycles and each growth cycle includes a growth phase, a transitional phase and a resting phase. With hereditary hair loss, the genes and the hormones in your body have a shrinking effect on the hair follicles making them ineffective at growing new hairs. Each hair growth cycle produces a shorter, finer, much less visible hair due to the shrinkage of the scalp follicles, leading to a shortening of the hair’s growing cycle. Over time, a few follicles will be destroyed and fail to grow new hair, the hair becomes thinner and shorter until eventually, there is no growth at all.
Wash your hands before and after applying the solution.
Not everyone will experience side effects when they take Regaine for men, however if you do they can include:-

This is not necessarily the case; your hair loss may prove to be less, the same or even more than other family members.
In 95% of cases, male pattern baldness is hereditary but there are some rare occasions where hair loss can be caused by other things such as a medical condition, prescribed medication so chemotherapy treatment for certain cancers, poor nutrition, bad hair care techniques or severe stress. REGAINE is not suitable for other non-hereditary types of alopecia and you should discuss alternative treatments with your GP.
The earlier you start using REGAINE the greater your chances of seeing results; REGAINE works best in the early stages of hereditary hair loss. When used twice daily, you can expect results after just sixteen weeks. But REGAINE will not work for everyone and it is not possible to ascertain who will be the successful users other than the general principle that the sooner you start using it the better, so it is less effective for men who have been experiencing hair loss for a number of years or who have a large area of baldness.
Minoxidil increases blood flow thereby promoting hair growth by reversing the miniaturisation of the follicles, increasing blood supply around the follicles, stimulating follicle movement from the resting to active hair growth phase and finally, by extending each follicle's growth phase. It was initially discovered as a medicine in tablet form to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) and it was noticed that those patients being treated with Minoxidil experienced excessive hair growth. Further research led to the development of a solution of Minoxidil which can be applied directly to the scalp.
If you hair growth is stimulated, you will need to keep using REGAINE twice a day for the growth to continue. Regrown hair may disappear three to four months after you stop using REGAINE and the balding process will then continue. Do be aware that in the early stages of use, you may notice a temporary increase in hair loss in the first two to six weeks; this is part of the hair's natural cycle and rather than being something to worry about, it is actually a promising sign. It shows that the hair is transitioning from the rest phase of the cycle to the growing phase.
