Hi,
I’m a 21 year old girl and 3 years ago my hair started to get a lot thinner. i was under a lot of stress and my dermatologist told me this was the cause. He advised me to try rogain.

I have been using it for 3 years now and I have a lot of new hairs. it doesnt seem like its thinning anymore… although its still nowhere near its past thickness. Im curious as to when I can stop using rogain? Do i have to continue using it forever now that i have started it?

Help!

I would consult with your doctor first… but if the hair grew directly from Rogaine, those hairs could fall out after stopping the medication. You’re really taking a gamble that the Rogaine wasn’t beneficial and the loss was purely stress induced. I really do not know of your personal situation so I can just give you generalizations.
