Not Your Husband's Rogaine "If hair is just beginning to thin, Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment Spray is a great first product to try," says fine hair specialist Lucinda Ellery. The product contains 2% Minoxidil (that's the wonder ingredient in Rogaine) which not only helps stop hair loss, but also promotes regrowth with constant use. (For a drugstore option, Pantene Hair Regrowth Treatment for Women also contains 2% Minoxidil.) But Ellery does warn you need a little patience. Minoxidil-based treatments can take up to three months of use to see results. Plus, the spray is a leave-in treatment, which Dr. Jeannette Graf, M.D. and assistant clinical professor of dermatology at The Mount Sinai Medical Center says could prove a more effective method because it has greater contact time with the area it's treating than other thinning hair products. Sold and sold.
In women, thinning hair and hair loss can be chocked up to a wide variety of causes. Physical and emotional stress, poor nutrition, and genetics (often the cause behind female pattern hair loss and post-menopausal hair loss) are all hair loss causes. But there's a difference between needing to add some volume and 'oomph' into your hairstyle and truly needing products for thinning hair or hair loss. If you've recently gone through a change, like switching up your birth control brand or you recently had a baby, your hair loss is most likely temporary. But if you notice your hair thinning progressively over time, or you see noticeable loss around the crown and hairline you may need to look into hair loss treatments.
We researched the newest products for thinning hair (along with a few tried and true favorites) with the help of cosmetic chemists, dermatologists and specialists in thinning hair to tell you which ingredients and formulas will get the job done. Here, your new secret weapons in combatting hair loss.
