Those who use Rogaine Foam


#1

For those who use or have used Rogaine Foam, how do you apply it if you have long hair? And will the recommended amount be enough to spread over the entire scalp?

I’d just kind of move the hair around and make sure you rub the foam into the scalp. The most important part is to have it absorbed into the skin on your scalp. Probably easier said then done with long hair.

Well there’s only one way to find out. I’m going to give a bottle a try. Maybe use liquid solution in the am and foam in the pm. But I really want to see how the foam is applied and try it for about a month.

There is minoxidil 5% in a gel solution. I’ll attach a link below. Have you or anyone else heard of such a thing? I wonder of the reviews.

The foam dries much much faster then the liquid. I found it much more manageable.

Another plus side to the foam is no propylene which causes the terrible itching and irritation. And no greasy mess drooping down your back, your sides, and your forehead! No yellow stains all over your pillow sheets either.

I HOPE foam’s application works well for me, I’d swap in a heart beat.
