can an african american female who relaxes her hair use rogaine? are there any known cases where using minoxidil on relaxed hair has caused breakage.

These are two complex issues which should be overseen by a competent doctor who knows about minoxidil and relaxers.

Generally speaking, minoxidil (Rogaine) will work on African Americans who use relaxers with no difficulty, but it is recommended that you don’t use the minoxidil on the same day that your hair is chemically relaxed, as it could cause scalp irritation.
