What is Regaine foam?

Regaine foam is a simple to use solution for hair thinning and hair loss in men. Simply apply Regaine foam to the affected area twice a day to help prevent hair loss and help your hair to grow back stronger.


Why am I losing my hair?

One of the most common causes of hair loss in men is male pattern baldness, which is hair loss that runs in your family. This is also known as hereditary hair loss. Over time, the hair follicles in your scalp begin to shrink and stop working, usually starting at the crown of your head or your hairline.


How does Regaine foam help to prevent hair loss?

Each 1g dose of Regaine foam contains 50mg of the active ingredient Minoxidil, which is thought to help hair loss by encouraging blood flow to the follicles in your scalp. This helps them to get bigger, slowly reversing shrinkage caused by hereditary hair loss, and helps your hair to grow back stronger.


How long will it take for this foam to work?

You may need to use Regaine Foam for 8 weeks before you see any new hair growth, this is not unusual as hair growth is a naturally slow process. When you do see new hair growth, it may be soft and downy, to begin with, but should eventually gain the same colour and texture of your normal hair. If you see no improvement after using this product for 16 weeks, stop use.


How long will this Regaine Triple Pack last for?

This triple pack gives you a 3 months' supply of Regaine. Every 73ml can last you for around a month of everyday use, so they pack will make sure that you can continue your hair growth journey for a whole 3 months before you'll need to buy more.


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

Some medications should not be used at the same time as Regaine Foam as they can interact and cause unwanted effects. This includes creams, lotions, and ointments that are used to treat scalp conditions, such as:

  • Dithranol – Used to treat psoriasis
  • Tretinoin – Used to treat acne and other skin conditions
  • Corticosteroids – A type on anti-inflammatory
  • Petrolatum – A common ingredient in hair wax or gel

You should speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using this product if you are using blood pressure medications known as vasodilators. The minoxidil in this product can interact with these medications, making their effects increase. If you are taking any other medications, speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using this product to be sure that they are safe to use together.


Can I use my normal styling products when I’m using this foam?

You can use your regular styling products, such as hair wax, gel, or spray, while you are using Regaine. However, this product needs to be applied to a dry scalp, so you should use it before styling your hair as you usually would.


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

You can dye your hair if you are using Regaine for Men, but you should ask the person who is dying your hair to be gentle. Using a wide-toothed comb can help you to avoid breakage or damage that can be caused to your hair through excessive pulling.


Can I drive after using this product?

Regaine for Men can cause dizziness or low blood pressure after you’ve used it. Do not attempt to drive or use tools or machinery until you are sure that you are not affected in this way.


How to use Regaine foam

Each time you use Regaine foam you should use 1g of product, which is the same as half a capful of foam. Make sure that your scalp is completely dry before each application. Apply 1g of Regaine foam to the affected area of the scalp with your fingertips, do this twice a day. Do not use more than 2g of foam every day and leave at least 12 hours between applications.


When should Regaine foam not be used?

Regaine foam is not suitable for use by those under the age of 18 or over the age of 49. Do not use Regaine for Men if you are female. The Regaine foam should not be used if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Do not use Regaine foam if you have ever had an allergic reaction to Minoxidil or any of the other listed ingredients.

Can this product be used with Biotine tablets?

Biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin, also called vitamin B? and formerly known as vitamin H or coenzyme R. Regaine is fine to use whilst taking this vitamin

Does it help beard hair growth?

There are many queries regarding whether Regaine or minoxidil can be used topically to grow facial hair. This question arises mainly because it is available over the counter and should therefore be safe for topical (external) use. It is also known to work well for scalp hair (improving growth in 80% of cases), so why not the facial variety like your beard?

Does it only work on top or also front hairline?

Minoxidil is a vasodilator, a drug designed to dilate blood vessels and improve the flow of blood to certain areas of your body.

When applied topically in the form of a liquid or foam, minoxidil increases blood flow to the parts of your scalp where hair grows. By increasing blood flow, more oxygen and nutrients are able to be transported into each hair follicle, promoting growth and hair health.

As such, there’s no reason Regaine shouldn’t work for a receding hairline. The hair follicles in your hairline aren’t significantly different from the others on your scalp or crown, meaning that you should still experience the benefits of minoxidil when you apply it to your hairline.

Is it best used at night or morning?

Use Once in the Morning and Once in the Evening before Bed

Is the packaging discreet?

All Chemist 4 U orders are delivered in discreet packaging.

What is expiry date on these please

What's the difference between Regaine For Men Extra Strength Solution and Foam?

Both of these products should work with the same efficacy however based on user feedback at Chemist4U many users think that the liquid can be quite messy and prefer the foam which is easier to apply with less mess.

S Otha,
I like this product.
Not much helpful
This is the only product I have found to combat against the adverse effects of DHT on the hair follicles. At worst, it halts hair loss, at best, hair start to regrow within a few months of continuous usage.
J Field,
Enhances quality of hair in short period of time.
Mr Smith,
Too expensive for little to no results
