Honey, I use Rogaine but I'm 67! I started when I was in my early 60's and you do have to use it forever. I don't imagine you want to start so young.

I don't think you should use Rogaine for what you are describing. There must be some other way to regrow your hair after extensions and flat ironing. Won't it just grow back in time if you are gentle to your hair and scalp? Rogaine is more for hair loss due to illness or aging.

I'm awfully sorry to hear about your situation, but if you can possibly wait it out, even if you have to wear a wig, I think that would be better than putting a chemical like Rogaine for so many years. It takes several months to take effect anyway.

Please post back and let us know how you are doing.
2/c. Coarse hair med. density.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Ice Queen!
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets or use a curling brush - classic glamor.
Every day is a gift
