Get Thicker, Fuller Hair with Women’s Rogaine #MoreIsBeautiful

Rogaine

For the last 6 years I have noticed more and more hair lost in the shower, that I have to clean out my brush much more often and the sheer amount of hair that is wrapped around my hair tie in the mornings when I remove my ponytail/bun. My hair has become so thin and frail and I miss my old hair. This is me about 6 years ago, right around the time that the hair loss started but hadn’t become noticable yet. It was never as thick as my moms hair, which is so super thick, but it was I guess what most would call normal.

Me Before
As you can see here, it is much thinner, although, the picture is a bit misleading as I tease the heck out of my hair to give the illusion of volume. This was the day after I got my new hair cut last year. I actually wanted it shorter, but the hair dresser told me that my hair was so thin on the top that if I went shorter, then all people would see was scalp. Ouch!!

Me After
I have tried many different products over the years to try and get better hair including and especially vitamins but also lots of shampoos, creams ugh! I had all but given up and accepted that I am taking after my father, as his hair continues to thin. That was until I was asked if I wanted to try out a new Rogaine product, made especially for women. Um YES please.

Rogaine Bottles
I was skeptical and a little scared at first, but I just remembered that Rogaine has been around for a really long time and many people have had tons of success, so I became hopeful. Especially after how easy it was to find in the shampoo aisle at my local Walmart and how affordable it is, $43 for a 2 month supply. I have spent 2-3 times more than that on all the other products I have tried, so this was a bargain for me.

Rogaine in store
While I was picking up Women’s Rogaine, I decided to try out leave in conditioner while I was at it. Yes I am 36 years old and have never tried leave in conditioner. I figured I would try Aveeno since I love their lotions!

Aveeno
Now, using Women’s Rogaine is actually very easy to use, easier than I thought it would be. First, just wash your hair like normal, I use the Aveeno Active Naturals Nourish + Strengthen Shampoo and Conditioner. This video will help explain the rest:

Something else I have learned, that I am really guilty of, is that wearing a ponytail, or in my case, as bun to bed can make losing your hair worse. I am now making a serious effort NOT to wear one, but it has been difficult because I hate hair flying in my face while I sleep. Maybe she should get a sleeping cap? Is that a thing?

Oh, and you have to be patient with Women’s Rogaine, as it does not produce instantaneous results. In fact, there is no VISIBLE progress yet as far as looking at my hair and scalp, however I have lost far less hair in the shower and in my brush since I started using Women’s Rogaine. That to me, is major progress. As far as visible progress is concerned, most women see results between 3 and 6 months. So patience is a virtue with this product.
