The Skinny on Thinning Hair

close formula

Stress, hormonal changes, aging, heredity, pregnancy, medication, illness, environment, poor nutrition. No matter why it happens, hair loss is heartbreaking. And that explains why your clients are willing to invest in solutions. But despite the willingness to spend, the conversation isn’t always easy. “For most women the first person they share this information with is their stylist—often because it’s an uncomfortable subject,” says Celebrity Stylist and Rogaine Spokesperson Jill Crosby.


What makes the conversation easier? When you’re able to provide expert advice and knowledgeable insights about the options that are available for your clients. Here’s how you can transform your client’s fine texture to fuller, thicker hair with just one product!


Women’s Rogaine®


What’s Unique:
Rogaine claims it’s the only FDA approved once-daily treatment for hair regrowth on the market. They also say it regrows hair in 81 percent of women—and the hair that comes in is 48 percent thicker.


What’s In It:
Five percent Minoxidil—the highest concentration available for women.


Who It’s For:
This is the first and only FDA-approved, once-daily, over-the-counter hair regrowth treatment exclusively for women.


How It Works:
Women’s Rogaine Foam regrows hair by prolonging the growth phase of the hair cycle and diminishing the resting phase. It reverses the miniaturization (shrinking) process and revitalizes hair follicles to stimulate growth. The convenient, fragrance free foam can be used with other styling products and is safe to use on color-treated or chemically-processed hair.


Takeaway Tip:
“Be consistent with use of Women’s Rogaine—that’s the most important factor,” notes Jill Crosby. “Also, thinning hair is really delicate. Reduce the heat on your styling tools—you won’t need as much heat to get as much volume. Be careful with tension—we can get a lot of volume in the hair without a whole lot of tension. Apply mousse and root-lifter, blow-dry thoroughly with your hands, then finish with a round brush.”
