I lose a ton of hair all the time. I don't have bald spot but am worried I'm going to become bald. I bought Rogaine for men. Can women use the one marked for men? The pharmacist said it's ok for women to use. WHat do you think?

Oh I hope so. My hair used to be so thick stylists charged me 150% to work with it but now they complain it is "so fine" it is hard to work with but I only have to pay regular price. Smile) But I still worry that if I continue to lose hair at the rate I've been losing it I'll be bald. Please post and let me know how the Rogaine works for you.

My derm friend says the 5% is fine for women. I think it's a matter of what parameters were used when they went through the FDA hoops. There's no reason for women not to use the stronger version; it just wasn't tested originally.

I thought women who could or plan to get pregnant shouldn't use 5%. I found the 5% too oily. I don't like to shampoo more than twice or three times per week because I have expensive blonde highlights.

I bought the 2% one to try. I don't have any bald spot now, so I followed the picture on the box showing men with slight bald spots who can use 2%. I felt that 5% would be too strong for me. I used it once, and my scalp turned slight pink. I will continue to use it and see if it improves my hair loss issue at all.

I had no idea how much hair I'd been losing until I bought a new drain screen for my bathtub. The older one just had small holes so my fine hair never got caught but the drainer screen was just that -- a mesh screen. I was shocked at how much hair I'd been losing. Now it's easy to tell by checking the drain once a week (I always comb my hair before washing it)and I seldom have hair in the drain, although you are bound to lose several strands a day normally. That would be one way to tell if the Rogaine was working. It takes two months for it to totally kick in supposedly, but you might notice it sooner.

Oh great! Thanks for pointing this out about its taking possibly 2 months for it to take effect. I just used it twice so far, and I still lose tons of hair during washes. I'm really concerned about all that hair loss, but I can't find baldspots, so I guess that's good. Hopefully rogaine will help minimize hair loss.
