Hair loss: Rogaine is a brand name for minoxidil. The chemical is identical. It seems to stimulate hair growth but as soon as you stop taking it the new hair will fall out. So you would have to take it for 50 years. Other options are hair transplants from the nape of your neck. Look at pictures of your Dad at your age. Get and read "The Serenity Prayer" by Reinhold Neihbuhr. Women think bald is sexier!
