This is a review of Pfizer’s Rogaine. The manufacturer claims Rogaine regrows hair in men and women. The primary ingredient, Minoxidil, is what they claim is responsible for regrowing hair. Read on for information about the ingredients, pricing, side effects of Rogaine.


Rogaine contains:

  • Minoxidil
  • Stearyl Alcohol
  • Propylene Glycol
  • Isobutane
  • Citric Acid
  • Lactic Acid
  • Glycerine
  • Polysorbate 60
  • Purified Water

Minoxidil, which was initially used orally to treat high blood pressure, is the main, active ingredient in Rogaine. When used as a high blood pressure treatment, it was discovered patients grew extra hair on their bodies, prompting the testing of Minoxidil as a topical solution on balding areas of the scalp. The results were positive for the regrowth of hair.


Rogaine should be applied directly to the thinning areas of hair on the scalp, and this should be done twice a day.
