Can Rogaine Prevent Hair Loss From Chemotherapy?

Many people undergoing chemotherapy want to know if they can avoid the hair loss that is usually associated with it. Rogaine (minoxidil) has been found to be beneficial in this situation. While minoxidil won’t prevent all hair loss from occurring, it has been shown to speed up hair regrowth in cancer patients who have lost hair. It is possible that it may even delay the hair loss from occurring sooner. Rogaine however does have a few side effects that you should know about such as scalp irritation, itching, burning of the eye, as well as unwanted hair growth in other areas of the body.

If you are interested in using Rogaine you should first speak with your doctor to figure out if it’s right for you.
