View Full Version : Rogaine shed

I plan to start Rogaine only in crown area, so the initial shed should only happen in the crown area with other area unaffected?

You can reduce the emotional impact of the shedding phase by tapering up to the recommended dose slowly over time. Start with just once a day every other day for the first bottle. Then once a day every day for the next bottle. Then twice a day as directed from then on.

It is a good idea to wash your hair once a week with Nizoral shampoo. If you are in the US, you will need to get a script for the 2% version of Nizoral. There is a non-prescription strength version called Nizoral A-D that is 1% but it has become difficult to find.

It is also a good idea to replace your current daily shampoo and conditioner with sulfate free shampoo and conditioner if you haven't already done so.
