I just wanted to let you know that I called today about the Men's Rogaine Easy-to-Use Foam (1 month's supply). The representative told me that it was gluten free and did not contain any products or ingredients who's products contained Oats, Wheat, Barley or Rye.

She checked on my specific box/lot #

Bar code: 3-12547-78130-5
Lot: 1442RD
EXP: 2014/02

I am not sure if this foam is a new product or if they have changed their ingredients from before. Either way I am a happy camper. :)

My doctor prescribed this to me for my hair loss (Celiac Dx in May 2012). I had to have 2 minor and 1 major surgery since then and my hair was falling out in clumps (not sure if it was stress from the medical trauma I was going through with my liver, from the surgeries, or from the gluten products I was using). At age 27 I had lost about 85% of my hair over 2 months or so. I just wish I knew I was going to loose so much because I would have cut it short and donate it. >.<

I've now switched to gluten free products for my skin and hair, and my liver issue is resolved. It seems to be that a "normal" amount is falling out now, but the doctor said this would speed things up for re-growth. She told me to use the men's for the kind of hair loss I had (I'm female).

Hope this helps.

Forgot to mention this in my reply. Something that may help with your hair loss is some extra biotin vitamins. There are also vitamins specifically formulated to help with hair loss.
A derm may also be able to prescribe something that may help and be safe for you to use. They do make Rogaine formulas for women but Rogaine is designed for pattern baldness but it doesn't sound like that is what you are experiencing and in most cases that is a genetic thing and when you stop the Rogaine the loss reoccurs.
It does take a long time, around 3 months or so, to see any regrowth. I know how distressing this is as I suffer a great amount of hair loss with any gluten or soy injestion.
