What is Regaine?

Regaine is a clinically proven hair loss treatment for men, containing the active ingredient Minoxidil. Regaine For Men Extra Strength foam contains Minoxidil 5%.

It has been shown to either prevent further hair loss or help with hair regrowth in 8 out of 10 men who use it.

Trials have shown that the active ingredient minoxidil can help slow or even stop hereditary hair loss in as many as 8 out of 10 users. A percentage of those can even regrow some hair. This makes it the trusted treatment choice of over 5 million people worldwide. Regaine Extra Strength Foam contains minoxidil 5% and is designed for men who want faster results in comparison to the normal strength.

  • It has been shown to re-grow some hair in 3 out of 5 men
  • Results usually appear after 8-12 weeks of use.

What is hair loss?

During a normal day, people can lose between 50 and 100 hairs from their scalp. It is hard to notice this because new hair is always growing and replacing the hair we lose. Hair loss happens when the new hair cannot replace the hair that falls out. The medical term for hair loss is alopecia. 

The most common cause of hair loss in men is called androgenetic alopecia (also called androgenic alopecia). In men, it is known as male pattern baldness or male pattern hair loss. It becomes more common with increasing age and it will affect about 80% of men over their lifetime.

Male pattern hair loss is due to a combination of hormones, called androgens, and genetics. If you have a family history of hair loss, you may be more likely to carry genes that put you at

risk of experiencing hair loss.

Male pattern baldness usually starts with hair loss at the front and sides of the scalp which progresses towards the back of the head.

If you find you have sudden, patchy hair loss or more hair loss than usual, speak to your GP. There may be other conditions associated with your hair loss.

How does it work?

The active ingredient in Regaine is minoxidil.

It is believed to work by increasing the supply of blood and nutrients to the hair follicle. This helps strengthen existing hair and in some cases can stimulate secondary growth. It is thought to reverse the hair loss process by increasing the diameter of the hair shaft. It is also thought to stimulate and prolong the ‘growth’ phase of hairs.

In the early stages of Regaine use, old hairs may fall out, making way for new thicker hairs – so don't worry if hair loss increases at first.

How to use Regaine Foam

Regaine Foam is for external use only and should only be applied to the scalp area. Before applying it, make sure that your scalp and hair are completely dry.

Press the nozzle to dispense the foam onto your fingers, each dose should be about half a capful of foam. Massage the foam into the affected areas of your scalp twice a day. Doses should be spaced about 12 hours apart.

It should be applied twice daily for at least 8 weeks before results can be seen. You should use Regaine for 4 months, to see if it will work for you. If it is working, you should continue to use Regaine if you want to keep noticing results.

Always wash your hands before and after applying the foam to your scalp.
