I have used it for many years and I can see hair growing in areas treated usually there might be a little itching as the dormant hair start growing and soon you’ll see short hair showing and starting to grow to give you fuller hair. I think you have to continue using it to keep the newly grown hair but I have reduced the frequency and see no loss in hair. I think given the alternatives for hair treatment this is probably one of the best choices least amount of effort or any discomfort helps revive your look, not to mention a boost to self-confidence. Always follow the instructions that come with the product. Be patient it takes a while to get going but once it does take effect you see results.
