It is January 10th. Time for another Rogaine Report on my hair regrowth progress.
This morning marks the 63rd day of Rogaine / 2% Minoxidil treatments. I continue to squirt 1 ml of the clear water-like liquid onto the crown of my head, twice a day. It dries very quickly, causes no irritation and is effortless. That’s 126 treatments or 126 ml in all. As of today I have used up 4 bottles.
The cost of these treatments has varied considerably, depending on where I buy the product. It cost me $78.00 (with tax) at Rexall Drug store. At Walmart I bought their genetic equivalent called “Equate” for $58.00. This produce still has the same 2% Minoxidil in its ingredients. On a recent shopping trip into the United States I bought several boxes of the original Rogaine brand but this time it did not include the whole kit with eye dropper, spray nozzle and twist cap. The smaller box cost me $50.00 and I re-used the applicator from the last purchase. I see this expensive as affordable. I use to colour my hair monthly. This costs the same. This costs the same as a bottle of wine a week. Now, I’m not suggesting that I would give up a bottle of wine every week for life, but it helps to put things in perspective. Would you pay $50.00 a month to have hair? Of course you would.
Ok… on to the results. Again this month I am pleased. My bald spots are no longer the first thing I notice when I look in the mirror. In fact, my reaction upon seeing shots taken of me on New Year’s Eve photos was “not bad”. Before my scalp was tight and shining and the sparse hairs stood up like trees trunks in a forest with the sun setting behind. (That is a bad analogy because that all sun sets are pretty and my thin hair was not). Anyway, without further adieu…
This is my scalp in November
This is now
Eh? Its coming along, right?
It is not exactly bushy but if you passed this woman in a supermarket you wouldn’t think twice about the density of her hair. You would be too busy selecting broccoli to even notice.
Life is good. (:
