Hi, I’ve been using minoxidil for approximately two years and was quite happy with the results until I went two weeks without using it. After that I noticed a lot of hair loss! I’m still continuing to use it but now wondering if I’ve completely wasted my time and money for the past two years as I’ve heard you don’t regrow hair when you’ve had a break in the routine. Is that true?
I would not say that you’ve completely wasted your time. However, it is likely that some of the hair that shed will not regrow. Even so, I would venture to guess that restarting Rogaine (minoxidil) has continued to preserve hairs that would have been lost otherwise. It’s always the best option to continue use.
Unfortunately, there is really no way to know for sure. Only time will tell how much hair growth will return.
