Q:

Does Rogaine work on frontal baldness?

A:

Rogaine works on frontal baldness as long as the area is just beginning to thin. Rogaine is effective on any area where there is miniaturized hair. Miniaturized hair on the scalp is not easily visible to the naked eye, so it is always important to consult with a Rogaine specialist before proceeding with treatment.

Rogaine is the brand name for minoxidil, a topical treatment that promotes hair growth. Minoxidil, originally utilized as a blood pressure medication, has a side effect of hair growth. Studies have found that minoxidil is a safe and effective treatment for male pattern baldness, and it is now one of the most popular treatments for hair loss in both men and women.

Rogaine is available in both topical liquid and foam solutions. It works best when applied twice a day, or when applied at bedtime in a double dose. Rogaine is most effective when it is used on a regular, consistent basis. Results appear within three to six months. One of the most common side effects to Rogaine is hair shedding, and this often causes concern in first-time users. Shedding is an indicator that the medication is working as it should. Shedding symptoms typically subside within the six-month time frame when thicker and fuller hair begins to emerge.

    How do you get gum out of your hair?

    A:

    Gum can be removed from hair by thoroughly coating the area with creamy-style peanut butter or vegetable oil and leaving it in for several minutes. Massaging the area helps the oil penetrate, and a comb also makes removal easier. After the gum is removed, wash the hair with regular shampoo to remove any oily residue.

    I colored my hair too dark; how do I tone it down?

    A:

    The simplest option for toning down overly darkened hair is to wash the area with a clarifying shampoo that has a drying effect. This method would strip away some of the color, leaving behind a lighter shade. Another alternative is to create a homemade solution by mixing 1 teaspoon of baking soda into an everyday shampoo. Lather it in, then wait 15 minutes before rinsing.

    How can you get Super Glue out of your hair?

    A:

    To get superglue out of hair, cover the area with conditioner, and comb through it using a fine-tooth comb. If conditioner is not strong enough to remove the glue, try using rubbing alcohol. Let the alcohol sit for five minutes before combing so it has adequate time to break down the glue.
