Rogaine is growing old hair line back but only on one side. Other side is still receding and thinning more. Why is this? Been on rogaine consistantly for 5 1/2 months and propecia for a year. Should I continue rogaine or stop? Do not want to lose anymore hair on that one side. Thanks
How are you sure it was the Rogaine (minoxidil) and not the Propecia (finasteride) that caused the regrowth? If you stop either treatment, you will probably lose what you gained, even if the benefits were only visible on the one side. It’s up to you whether you’re willing to risk it.
If you end up using both medications for at least 12 months and still don’t see a similar regrowth on the other side of your hairline, then a hair transplant may be the only solution for you.
