Hi
This is the second time have tried Minoxidil and 2nd time I end up with a very itchy scalp. Here in Australia we only get the one type so I can’t get the one that has a different base as have read about. Should I continue ? and the itch will go away ? or is this a reaction that will happen all the time.

And lastly what is your advice on Revivogen ? I have read their side of the story but cant find any posts where just us guys have posted comments about it ? Good ? Hopeless ? Could I have the same problem with Minoxidil ? ie the the itch ?

Many thanks for your comments.

I used Revivogen for 3 months (the 3 month supply). I honestly can’t say if it really worked or not. I believed for some area’s to grow a little hair back and some area’s to lose more. (!?) I don’t know. I just ran out, but I think I’m going to give it another chance…or..I’m thinking of switching to Minoxidil because I’ve heard good things about it.

My question is though…will Minoxidil work with a receding hair line? Does anyone here use it for a receding hair line and it seems to have stopped you hair from falling out??

PLUS- The best thing about Revivogen is the smell. It’s not great, but it doesn’t smell like you’ve been drinking (Rogaine). Smell more fruity, I guess. I didn’t get very much irriation from it. My scalp iched everyonce in a while. Another thing about it is the color of it is orange. And I found it to stain my skin for a while..

You might be allergic to the Propylene Gycol in Minoxidil (original poster). If that is true, I don’t guess that your itchiness will go away.

I suggest that you try to mail order some non-PG minoxidil if possible? I think Dr. Lee makes some at minoxidil.com (?). I don’t know what the laws are in your country about imports.

Propylene Glycol is what antifreeze is. Some people find it highly irritating to their skin.

Thanks for replies guys.

Anyone else out there with results on
Revivogen ? Have just received my first order.
Does it really leave an orange stain ?

Does it work ?

I could not find anything more on this site except for Revivogens own ads. Is it brand new ? ( remember I live in Australia and we are sooooo far behind in this area )
