NOT a 6-month supply
I was extremely attracted to this item, which advertised a 6-month supply for about the same price as a 3-month supply from Wal-mart. Looking closer, though, I see that the box has 3 2-ounce bottles. The Wal-mart Equate is also 3 2-ounce bottles, and it is the same strength. The fine print on the Kirkland box says “UP TO” 6 months. Caveat emptor!
Allergic reaction after several days of usage
I can’t say that it worked because I was unable to use it to the fullest. I am allergic to something inside the ingredients. I believe it’s the alcohol used in the mixture. It dried my scale up and made me itch like crazy. Unfortunately, I tried several other products but they all use the same alcohol ingredient.If you are allergic to rogaine, don’t use this one – it has the same ingredient.
It works for me, a woman – know that it will not for everyone
Minoxidil was first developed as an anti-hypertensive, and then the side effect of gair growth was noted. It can drop blood pressure, hence side effects like dizziness or weakness for some people. This stength is supposed to be for men because of the potential side effect of facial hair growth. I am a niddle aged woman, I was born bald, and have had thin, silky hair all my life since I grew hair. As it began to get even thinner in middle age, I began using generic minoxidil with good effect. I have used it off and on for over 10 years.I use the 5% now, and I have the thickest hair that I have ever had in my life. It is such a pleasure!Once I did grow pale blond fuzz on my cheeks. I actually thought it was hysterically funny since I totally love monkeys and was starting to look like one. I used Sally Hansen facial hair removal gel once and it has not returned, I also do use it at the front of my hair line. That also is the thickest ever. My hairline eventually began to lower as the hair reclaimed the top of my forehead, so I used that gel to create a shapely hairline. Both of my sisters have very thin hair, and usually the women in my family go bald by old age. I have a thick head of hair and am very happy about it. : )
I love it
I’m a female getting older. In my younger years I had a lot of my eyebrows removed by electrolysis. I saw on YouTube that if you used this on your brows twice a day, they would grow back. A lot of them did! I thought I had lost my brows forever. Great price too! Thank you so much!
[Updated w/Ayurvedic Alternative] It Works But It Includes Side Effects
Obviously, this is the men’s formula but I’m a woman who wanted more growth and upgraded to 5% in order to obtain it.My results were great–but be forewarned this product comes with side effects.Basically, I used this product for my crown area, hairline, and center section of my hair. These areas were experiencing various forms of hair loss ranging from shedding, thinning, and slow growth.Results? Using this product (in a mixture of shea butter, castor, and jojoba oils) gave me new growth.The side effects? Dark undereye circles (treat w/Vivite’s eye cream), facial hair (treat w/electrolysis), and massive migraines (treat w a dab of lavender oil to your pressure points).Granted, they’re terrible but I’m no longer experiencing hair loss.[UPDATE: 12/26/2012] Here’s a list of natural remedies for obtaining hair growth as opposed to utilizing minoxidil if you can’t bare the side effects (Note: I’ve utilized all remedies along my natural haircare journey and found my first option below paired withHorsetail (Natural Silica) 500 Mg 90 Capsand/orDoctor’s Best Best MSM (1500 mg) Tablets, 120-Countto be the most potent for hair growth:In a four oz. squeeze bottle, mix one container ofMiconazole Nitrate 2 % Antifungal Cream – 1 Oz (Pack of 6)withLouAna Pure Coconut Oil (31.5 fl oz) All Natural& olive oil. Make sure the oil mixture is filled to the top of the squeeze bottle. Prior to using this product, fill a cup with hot water and allow the squeeze bottle to sit in it for three minutes so the products can properly mix; shake the bottle for good measure. Use this product in the area that’s experiencing hair loss. Apply it directly to the affected scalp, and massage it for at least three mintues.Take twoHorsetail (Natural Silica) 500 Mg 90 Capstablets on a daily basisUtilizeBringraj (Bhringaraj) Hair Oil – 8 fl ozto treat your affected area (although it does have a slight odor that maybe offensive). Apply it directly to the affected scalp, and massage it for at least three mintues.I hope this helps, and feel free to ask any questions in regards to hair growth.
this is one third the price of "real" romaine. As far as I can tell,it works,so I’d be a fool to buy Rogaine. I am a regular purchaser of this. By the way, I am not bald, but age-related thinning is occurring. This seems to have halted it or at least slowed the process down.
