Hair loss advice for women

Clinically proven to help stop & even reverse hereditary hair loss

Hair loss in women is more common than you may think, with 40% of women having visible hair loss by the time they are 40. Regaine® for Women contains minoxidil, the only over-the-counter active ingredient clinically proven to help stop and even reverse hereditary hair loss.

Causes of hair loss


Hereditary hair loss – also known as androgenetic alopecia (AGA) is an inherited condition which reduces the time the hair spends actively growing. AGA causes the hair follicles to become smaller and slowly, thinner hair replaces your hair. In female pattern hair loss, the most prominent hair loss happens on the top of the head and along the parting.

Alopecia areata / Auto immune disorder

A type of non-hereditary hair loss is alopecia areata, an auto immune disorder that causes defined patches or complete hair loss that may happen rapidly. If you experience this type of hair loss, consult your doctor for treatment

Stress, diet & hormone imbalance

Temporary hair loss, known as telogen effluvium, happens when stress, diet, a hormonal imbalance, or a traumatic event, causes hair follicles to remain in the resting stage. If you experience this type of hair loss, consult your doctor for treatment.
