View Full Version : Question on Min (Rogaine)

Hello everyone,

I have been treating my hair loss (minor) for sometime and have been a happy responder.

I had a question on Minox. When I do things right, my shedding is not too bad... 10 - 15 hairs after hard brushing it with a towel and comb.

Sometimes hairs barely fall out. After I apply and rub Rogain(5%) through my hair/scalp I have about 10 hairs all over my hands. ALOT more than i normally have. I sometimes use rogain to even give a touch of style to my hair.

In short, everything is pretty good, I can rub my hands through my hair when its semi wet and see a few hairs here and there. When i do so with rogain there is a substantial difference in the amount of hair i have to pluck off my hand.

youre fine, its normal to shed up to ~100 hairs a day. either way its not worth counting, as its natural, and also is a good sign for hair treatments.

Try not to pay attention to it...wash your hands after applying rogaine before you look at them...or dont count the hairs...youll just stress yourself out.

i personally probably shed ~50 hairs when showering, ~50 between drying hair with towel and applying rogaine but then i dont really shed much more throughout the day.

Thank you very much for the reply. I ALWAYS count hairs in the sink, it drives me INSANE lol I can't wait for this latisse product to hit the market.

Sometimes I don't shed at all. So I think it's not entirely normal.
