Regaine® frequently asked questions
What is Minoxidil?
Minoxidil is the only over-the-counter active ingredient clinically proven* to help stop and even reverse hereditary hair loss. Minoxidil works by increasing the supply of blood and nutrients to your hair follicles helping to strengthen the existing hairs and encouraging them to grow.
How does Minoxidil work?
The active ingredient in Regaine® is minoxidil, the only over-the-counter active ingredient clinically proven* to help stop and even reverse hereditary hair loss. It helps to promote hair regrowth in 4 ways:
- Reverses miniaturisations of follicles

- Extends each follicle’s growth phase
