Rogaine may help expedite recovery from telogen effluvium
Rogaine may help expedite recovery from telogen effluvium. Please keep in mind you could notice an initial increase in shedding which can occur when hairs are being pushed out of the telogen phase and entering the anagen or growth phase. This can happen during the first few weeks but will level off quickly. After 6-9 months of regular use, you will likely start to see new hairs growing.
Male or female with CTE
If you are a male, you might have genetic hair loss. For females the problem is more difficult as female hair loss is more complex. See below
