New hope in the battle against hair loss

With 40% of men losing a portion of their hair by the age of 351, it's no wonder it's one of the top things to worry about. Whether it is receding, thinning on top, or developing a pronounced bald patch, for many men losing their hair, especially while still in the flush of youth, is a big concern.

Now there's a solution to the hereditary hair loss problem – REGAINE®. With 5% concentration of the active ingredient Minoxidil2 , the only over the counter hereditary hair loss treatment endorsed by the European Dermatology Forum,  REGAINE® Extra Strength Foam offers real hope in the battle against hair loss.

Minoxidil works by helping to increase the blood flow to the hair follicles. It also strengthens and increases the follicles diameter. This can result in halting hair loss and encouraging new growth. This is turn, hopefully leads to a thicker and healthier head of hair. Research also shows that nine out of ten men using REGAINE®  hair loss treatment, twice a day for 16 weeks, experienced no further hair loss or even noticed re-growth3.

If you want more information on what REGAINE® can do for you and about hereditary hair loss in general then talk to your pharmacist.
