I have been known to have really healthy, shiny black hair back in my teens and 20s which I was very proud of. Sadly as I got older, I’ve started seeing signs of aging in my hair. Since around my mid 30’s, I noticed that my hair had become drier and the texture had become more coarse and brittle. The density of my hair has decreased as well and I can’t tell you the amount of of hair strands I shed every time I wash it or whenever I brush my hair for styling. So lately, thinning hair has been a cause of concern for me.
In the process of researching for answers about these hair concerns, I found out that thinning hair and hair loss due to heredity is a real, common concern that 1 in 3 women will notice in their lifetime. Thinning and hair loss caused by hereditary hair loss can begin as early as your early 20s and can worsen as you age if left untreated.
For me personally, I’ve started using Women’s ROGAINE® 5% Minoxidil Foam once daily in the last three weeks to hopefully help regrow thicker, beautiful hair. It’s proven to help regrow hair in over 80% of women as it helps to reactivate hair follicles. I like the fact that this brand is approved by the FDA. It’s too early to see a significant result as it’s only been three weeks since I started using it. But I am confident this product will help me grow back healthier, stronger hair again.
Me: How long/when does the user expect to see an improvement hair growth after continued use of Women’s Rogaine Foam?
Jill: It takes about 12 weeks for her to see new growth. The hair has a life cycle and it once treatment begins , it will go through a cycle of naturally shedding and then beginning a new growth production . At this point she will begin to notice her new growth coming through. Using the product consistantly is KEY to her success
Me: How is Rogaine Foam different than all the other hair thinning solution products that are already out there?
Jill: Women’s Rogaine Foam is very different than other products out there . It is the only FDA proven product for womend hair regrowth on the market. And it is a once a day 5% minoidil foam which is so easy to use. Women’s Rogaine has also set up a website for its users to go to to learn more about how to use the product and also how style and manage their thinning hair now.
Here are some *helpful tips on keeping hair looking healthy, no matter what your age or stage of life.
Hair care in your 20s: Your hair is likely at its healthiest, but all those colorings, blowouts, sun exposure, smoothing treatments, straightening and curling irons can wreak havoc on your hair. If you are also doing yo-yo or fad diets, you are also losing sufficient nutrients you hair need. Watch for a widening part or a thinning ponytail, which may indicate the first signs of hair loss – the American Academy of Dermatology estimates that roughly 5 percent of women under 30 are affected.
