What is Regaine Extra Strength?

Regaine Extra Strength is a powerful solution which is designed to help prevent hair loss and promote hair growth. If you’re suffering from hair loss that runs in your family, Regaine can help you to see visible improvements fast.


Why am I suffering from hair loss?

Hair loss can happen for several reasons, but one of the most common reasons why men lose their hair is that it runs in their family. This is also called male pattern baldness and hereditary hair loss. With this kind of hair loss, you will notice that your hair starts to thin, normally beginning at the crown of your head, and your hairline starts to recede. There are other causes of hair loss as well. These include:

  • Illness
  • Trauma
  • Lack of protein or vitamins
  • Certain conditions, like thyroid disease
  • Chemotherapy
 Not all hair loss causes will be of the same severity.

How will Regaine Extra Strength help my hair loss?

Regaine Extra Strength uses the active ingredient Minoxidil, which is thought to encourage blood flow into the follicles of your scalp. This helps to reverse shrinkage caused by hereditary hair loss and helps the follicles to get bigger and healthier. This is what helps your hair to grow back healthier.


How long will it take for this product to work?

Hair growth is a slow process and you may need to use Regaine Extra Strength twice a day, every day for at least 2 months before you see any new hair growth. Your hair may feel soft and downy when it first starts to grow back, but should normally return to your hair’s natural colour and texture over time. Clinical trials have shown that 3 out of 5 men reported hair re-growth after 48 weeks of continuous use of this treatment if you do not experience any hair regrowth after a year of using this product you should stop use.


Can I use this product if I’m taking other medication?

Certain medications should not be used at the same time as Regaine Extra strength solution, including any creams, ointments, or lotions that are used to treat scalp conditions, such as:

  • Dithranol – Used for psoriasis
  • Tretinoin – Used for acne or other skin disorders
  • Corticosteroids – A type of anti-inflammatory
  • Petrolatum – A common ingredient in hair wax or hair gel

If you are taking a type of blood pressure medication called vasodilators (e.g. hydralazine), as they can interact with the active ingredient in Regaine and make the increase their effect. You should always speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using this product if you are taking any other medication, as they could interact and may not be safe to use together.


Can I use my hair gel or wax at the same time as this product?

You can use your regular styling products, such as hair gel, spray, or wax, at the same time as this product. However, you will need to apply Regaine to a dry scalp before you apply your styling products.


Can I dye my hair if I’m using this product?

You can dye your hair while using this product, however, you should suggest that whoever is styling your dyeing your hair should be gentle. This will help to minimise damage to existing hair that can be caused by excessive pulling on the hair.

I am over 50 years, will this product work for me?

REGAINE Foam is licensed for hereditary hair loss in men aged 18 to 49, and REGAINE Extra Strength Solution is for men aged 18 to 65 years. 

REGAINE Foam is intended for the younger market and the cut off age of 49 is based on the upper age limit in the trials submitted for license.

REGAINE Extra Strength Solution is intended for the more mature market. 

Why is this hair growth lotion only suitable for people up to 65?

The manufacturers of Regaine Liquid only licensed it for use in men aged between 18 and 65.

There are a number of reasons why this may happen, for example, sometimes there has not been enough testing to show that this treatment will be safe or effective in people of certain ages.

Unfortunately, I am unsure why Regaine Liquid was licensed in this way and can only advise that it's not suitable for people over 65.
