Rogaine has been around for a long time – but does it actually work for receding hairlines on the temples and hairline area?
Let us first examine what Rogaine really is – the chemical inside it is called Minoxidil – although many pharmaceutical companies deny in knowing how it works, such as the UK’s very own NHS website – it is actually very clearly known on how it works.
Minoxidil was originally designed for internal intake, for heart patients who have clogged arteries – the intention of minoxidil was to expand the vessels, so blood can safely pass without causing a heart attack – this is the actual of Rogaine – it simply expands vessels, so that blood is circulated better in the scalp, and hair growth can try to occur – but there is a problem with this.
The problem is – after Rogaine is used up – the vessels contract again – and if you don’t time your dosage, perfectly, including calculate your body’s ability to digest Rogaine at the time of application – you will get hair shedding, and actually lose hair – and if stopping use of it, will mean total loss of any gains you might have made.
Hair growth on the hairline or temple region of Rogaine is possible – but very hard to maintain – and you spent money and time, for something that is very short term, and causes side effects like inflammation – which is the actual main cause of hair thinning in the first place.
Now that you know how Rogaine and Minoxidil work – why would you even bother using these products. We all know that scalp massage will increase blood flow to the scalp – and if done regularly and long enough, new vessels actually start forming, as well as blocked vessels get unblocked (very easily after a 20 min massage) – and hair growth restarts!
What about genetic hair loss?
There is no such thing as genetic hair loss – until scientists can trace the exact face of a human being using DNA alone, it is not possible to actually say something is genetic or not – we have not come that far just yet – anyone that does say the words “genetic” and whatever condition – either doesn’t know, or is trying to hold something from you (or sell you something really expensive).
Genetic disorders from hair loss to anything else, can only be a copy of the life style of patterns your parents or grandparents did, which is still present in the family. For example, the choice of cereal and perfume you buy, will greatly depend on the type your parents and their parents purchased (although there are exceptions to this). The same is for genetic conditions – they reflect your eating habits, exercise habits, emotional habits, and mix them all and we call it genetics.
We already know genetic expression changes if you exercised for just 6 months! Then why would you even worry about genetic hair loss when you can actually change your genetic expression?!
There are some products out there that can help with inflammation such as ones on our home page – but in all honesty, the power of change is within you and your decisions on life – emotions you choose to create when a situation arises (some stay calm, some don’t, some get scared, some cry etc) are all choices you were taught as a kid, and directly affect your hormones, which directly affect your hair as well as a whole lot of areas in your body (from how you look and how you will constantly feel).
