Anyone try Rogaine on the front of their heads?


#1

i’ve been using Rogaine on the front hairline, but I’m not even sure if it’s supposed to work there…i do understand it’s supposed to work on the crown of the head…

comments please…

The initial clinical trials with topical minoxidil were done on the crown. For this reason, the only claims the FDA allowed were for regrowth of crown hair. However, minoxidil does work in the front. It is true that the further back you go, the better it works.
