I’m going to talk about hair today! I have long thick hair BUT….I have this spot of thinning hair at the very front of my hairline. Will it become more? Is it the start of more? I really don’t want to wait around to find out and so I’m trying Women’s ROGAINE® Foam!
Do you see it? That thinning little spot in the center of my hair line? Of course when I look at it it’s the size of a football field (yes, I always have football on my brain!!)!
The ROGAINE® Brand is the #1 dermatologist recommended brand for hair regrowth but not just for men, for women as well! Women’s ROGAINE® Foam 5% Minoxidil Topical Aerosol is the first and only FDA-approved once daily treatment for Women – morning or night – for hereditary hair loss. For 1 in 3 women the onset of female pattern hair loss can start between puberty and the 20s with a second peak in the early 40s, which is right where I am now. Left untreated, hair thinning can worsen over time and that is what I DO NOT want to happen!! Hair loss can come from either the mother or father’s side of the family. Did you know, most people lose between 50-100 hairs a day, which is considered normal hair loss. A consistent loss of 150 hairs a day is considered significant hair loss.
I had the pleasure of asking a few questions to the Women’s ROGAINE® Brand Ambassador, Jill Crosby.
Hi Jill, thank you for answering these questions for us today. I am presently experiencing hair loss and I find it quiet scary. It isn’t something that is discussed very much yet it is something a lot of women face. How many women actually have to deal with hair loss and are there early signs to look for?
Hi Ami! Unfortunately 1 out of every 3 women will face hair loss in her life time , a very high number.
Do you have any personal experiences with hair loss?
Yes , I too have gone through the journey myself. I have a personal understanding of the emotional side of this experience.
What makes Women’s ROGAINE® Foam different from other hair loss treatments on the market?
Women’s ROGAINE® Foam is such a unique product! It is the only FDA approved, once a day treatment proven to regrow hair on the market today.
I have not used conditioner for over 2 years and only use coconut oil to condition and it has made the biggest difference in my hair. It’s healthier and shinier than ever before. I almost want to stop using commercial shampoos. Do you think that the chemicals in today’s shampoos and conditioners play a part in non hereditary hair loss?
Yes, I personally think that many of the chemicals found in commercial hair “care” products contribute to NON- hereditary hair loss. It is very astute of you to take note on that. Whenever its possible to use natural products to achieve a look , then I am all for that .
Now, in the meantime here are some great tips I’ve found online and tips of my own to make hair look thicker and fuller!
One that is really simply and easy….tease! Tease your hair just a bit or a lot, however you like and your hair will appear to be fuller!
This my hair before teasing and then after. I just tease a little bit while my head and hair are upside down. Flip and VIOLA, fuller hair!
If you have thin or thinning hair you need to avoid detergents, polymers, proteins, damaging alcohols, and ammonia that is found in traditional shampoos in the form of ammonium lauryl sulfate or sodium lauryl sulfate. Here is a list of Sulfate Free Shampoo’s and Conditioners.
Take it easy on the HEAT! Don’t blow dry as often and use the lowest setting you can on your straightener or curling iron. Did y’all know I don’t blow dry my hair at all! ALL THIS HAIR and I never blow dry!
I’ve also heard it’s good not to color your hair too much. Can you tell I take this advice!? I don’t like it but I try not to color my hair too much!
DON’T BRUSH YOUR HAIR!!! I don’t! I use a very wide tooth comb when needed but mostly I brush my tangles out with my fingers.
Here is one that I’m always telling people and constantly getting crazy looks about. DO NOT WASH YOUR HAIR EVERYDAY! I wash mine every 3 days! Surprisingly after months of doing this my hair and scalp took on a much healthier life. It took a while for the build up of years of products to go away but it’s gone and my hair and scalp are healthier than they ever have been. No more dandruff, itchy scalp, hair always smells nice!
