Initial Impressions: Regaine For Women
Since I was a child, I've always had really think, unmanageable, tangly hair *you're all jealous, I know* and I've always heard the same thing from every hairdresser, 'your hair is SO thick', well that was until I started my third year of university and the stress of university and my dissertation seemed to affect my hair in a way that stress hadn't before. You are meant to loose between 150-250 hair per day or something around that which is completely normal but mine seemed to be so much more than that and it has continued for the past few years.

Thankfully my hair loss isn't massively noticeable when I have my hair down which is why you only get to see my hair when it's down on my blog or social media. My main hair loss is around my hairline, especially from my temples to my ears which makes me feel so self conscious about it as I do have my hair tied up most of the time.

It may not be be much at all to some people but it is to me and while I was deleting photos from my iMac a couple of weeks ago, I came across some photos of myself when I was about 15-18 and my hair looks at least double the thickness and volume it is now which is actually quite upsetting as it now looks so incredibly thin and patchy in some areas! I was sent the *Regaine For Women Hair Loss Treatment (£34.99) which is a cutaneous 5% minoxidil foam to prevent further hair loss, stimulate hair follicles and regrow the hair. One box contains a two month supply and it does have quite a few warnings to read and consider before using.

I started using it mid-November, I only started using it once a week for a couple of weeks to make sure I didn't have a reaction to it and thankfully I haven't. Due to December being the most hectic and to be honest emotional month I haven't been using it as frequently as I need to and with my SD card being corrupted, I don't have any before photos and I also don't have any noticeable results yet but I will have an update post next month, hopefully with some great result photos!

The product is so quick and easy to use, it is just like a hair mousse; I dispense it into the cap before applying with gloves to the affected areas. The mousse leaves my hair slightly matted to the touch which is why I'm not going to use it every day but if you wash your hair every day I don't think this would be a problem for you; however I try not to wash it more than three times per week. You're supposed to use it every day so I'm not expecting to get results as fast or noticeable compared to someone who uses it everyday but I am hopeful that it will work *fingers crossed*.

Have you tried any product like this before? Do you suffer from hair loss? If you have tried this item, let me know how you got on with it as I'm hoping it will work really well!

  4. I am very interested in your results. I have massive hair loss from pregnancy, stress, and health related issue. If it helps you, I will certainly go out to get it!
