    Default Rogaine use then shower few hours later

    If I use Rogaine in the morning then I shower a few hours later will this wash away the effects of Rogaine where I must re-apply it? Or do I just wait till night time for the regularly scheduled second dose. Thanks.

    I think you should wait at least 4 hours after applying, then you can wash your hair

    4 hours? Thanks for your response.

    Can anybody verify this?

    I usually apply AFTER my shower. Why would you apply it first, and then shower a few hours later? If you have to follow your regiment of applying then showering, I'd recommend using it at night time before going to bed. I used to do that while in grad school.

    It is always a good idea to read the information that comes with medications. The information that comes with Rogaine says to wait four hours before allowing your hair to get wet.

    "Can I get my hair wet after applying ROGAINE®?


    You can go swimming/go out in rain as long as you use good judgment. Avoid washing off ROGAINE®. If possible, apply ROGAINE® to a dry scalp after swimming. Try not to let your scalp get wet from the rain after applying ROGAINE®."
