When and How to Use It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Rogaine include the following:
  • This medication comes as a liquid or foam. It is applied directly on the scalp, usually twice daily (in the morning and evening).
  • The exact instructions for applying this medication may vary by product. Follow the instructions that are included with your particular Rogaine medication.
  • Do not use this medication if your scalp is red, irritated, sunburned, or infected.
  • Hair regrowth will not begin immediately upon starting this medication. It may take four months (or longer) to see results.
  • This product does not permanently reverse hair loss. Hair loss will recur within a few months of stopping the medication.
  • Keep this medication away from your eyes. If you use your hands to apply it, wash them thoroughly right after use.
  • Rogaine should be applied to a dry scalp. Do not wash your hair for at least four hours after applying the medication. Also, allow the medication to dry completely before using hair-styling products or touching your scalp with clothing or fabric, including hats or pillowcases.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be used as directed. Using more of the medication will not produce more or faster hair growth, but may increase your risk for side effects.

Dosing Information

The strength of Rogaine is different for men versus women. As is always the case, do not adjust the dosage unless a healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
