August is National Hair Loss Awareness Month, and 80% of Americans are affected by hair loss. The first FDA-approved over-the-counter topical hair loss treatment Rogaine is celebrating its 35th-anniversary helping people with thinning hair. Why is it the #1 derm-recommended brand? Because it works on contact using 5% of the magical ingredient minoxidil, the only ingredient that stimulates hair regrowth in topical form. And it counteracts the effects of hair loss by increasing protein production and revitalizing the hair follicles so you can regrow thicker, fuller hair. It works in as little as 12 weeks and has no scent.
Easy to use, apply half a capful of foam once or twice a day on dry or damp towel-dried hair, and gently massage it into the scalp where the hair is thinning. Allow the foam to absorb; then air dry completely before blow-drying or styling it.
Now for other ways to protect your hair: Don’t brush your hair when wet. Be gentle when using a comb. Also, use mild, gentle shampoos and leave-in conditioners. Avoid harsh treatments like bleaching and dying. Don’t use rubber bands or tie your hair back too tightly. Stress can play a factor, so take care of yourself and keep your stress levels in check. Of course, genetics or health can be a factor, so get checked out if you’ve noticed a lot of hair loss.
