Hey guys! :)
I've been a rogaine user for a couple of years now, and yes the stuff is making me shed less hair, but I never stop shedding? Is this normal? Anyone with a similar experience? After every application I loose around 50-100 hairs, and it seems like short to medium length hair sheds more? I don't seem to be shedding this much after a buzz cut (around 3-6 mm length)

Even people without MPB shed at least 50 hairs a day. Perfectly normal.
For me I've used rogaine for 8months and it's slowed loss by maybe 80%. Tiny bit of thickening.
Added Propecia 1.25mg a day 1 month ago and seems like it's helping rogaine out already. Shedding tiny hairs this week.
Also make sure you rub it in gently. New hairs can be shed from you simply applying it roughly.

Hi, i do not have any Rogaine user but i can tell about Rogaine and their effects on hair loss.
Rogaine or Minoxidil 2% solution is a treatment to cure hair loss in both men and women. Earlier it was available only by prescription but today a person can purchase it over the counter. Minoxidil is applied topically over the balding areas for stimulation of new hair growth. It drew a lot of attention from the media in its initial days as it was approved by FDA. It was known as a miracle drug's. Rogaine is said to have a moderate effect in controlling hair loss in some people. Also, it has been observed that women respond better to Rogaine treatment than menthe response rate is even higher when 5% minoxidil is applied. Be it Minoxidil 2% or 5% it effective only in cases of early hair loss or hair loss due to androgenetic alopecia or on relatively small areas of bald patches. Early use of minoxidil indicates that it helped in delaying the progression of male or female pattern hair loss. One must make sure that he/she uses Rogaine as directed by the physician.
A hair specialist at times uses Rogaine to delay hair transplantation for several years and conserve the donor area of hair which could be eventually used during hair transplant. Rogaine is effective in improving hair growth in the central areas of the scalp than the frontal areas. A hair specialist normally uses minoxidil to complement hair transplant and help create a fuller hair on the scalp. However, it is to be noted that minoxidil needs to apply for a lifetime. Stopping its application will result in excessive hair loss. It is advisable that one seek a hair specialist's advice before applying anything available over the counter. After all it is the matter of your hair!
