How long does a receding hairline take to grow back?
Hair may appear thin, but you likely won’t go completely bald. The condition is fully reversible. Once the triggering event is treated (or you recover from your illness), your hair may start growing back after six months. However, this type of hair loss can last for years in some people.
Why is Rogaine not for receding hairlines?
Is Minoxidil Effective For a Receding Hairline? Minoxidil works by improving blood flow to the area in which it’s applied. Apply it to your scalp and it can potentially improve hair density and increase the rate of growth. As such, there’s no reason minoxidil shouldn’t work for a receding hairline.
How do you use Rogaine for a receding hairline?
You can apply minoxidil directly to your hairline as a liquid solution or a foam. Your hair and scalp should be clean and dry, then you rub the minoxidil into the affected areas with your fingers. You typically apply minoxidil twice a day, but always use it as prescribed.
Can you use Rogaine on your whole head?
No. Unfortunately, minoxidil does not work on a receding hairline and is approved for use on the “vertex” or the top of the scalp only. Also, once hair loss covers too large an area and persisted for too long, minoxidil is less likely to be beneficial.
