Not badJan 23, 2015
By Ali Cheng
I did see some decent hair growth with this, so it did work as expected, However, it didn’t do much in terms of making my hair thicker and stronger. I found a product called Mynoxidrin Mynoxidrin - Extra Strength Hair Nutrient Formula Nourishes and Strengthens Thinning Hair and Promotes Hair Growth! which helped regrow hair just as well, but also made it REALLY thick and strong. I really like it. Both good products but I am sticking with mynoxidrin.

Found the answerJul 23, 2014
By Lovell Chazen
Frankly this review is slightly embarrassing to write, nobody wants to admit that they're going bald, especially to everyone on the internet. But I really think it's important to share my finding about Rogaine because there seems to be a lot of negativity directed towards this product. First and foremost, Rogaine works for only a very small percentage of people, but it does work. Secondly, it's not the end-all, be-all product for hair-loss.
Hair loss is caused by a number of factors, including the loss of testosterone and the increase in DHT. Rogaine does not go after these factors as a cause of hair loss, which is why it is only effective less than 50% of the time. What Rogaine does is focus on opening channels in your cell membrane to promote hair regrowth. While the mechanism isn't 100% understood it basically is trying to increase oxygen and blood flow to the part of your scalp that needs it to produce more hair. I've actually had very little success with Rogaine, until I started using this product AS WELL as Rogaine. Both products alone simply did not work for me.
I'm still unsure as to why each product wouldn't simply add the other's ingredients, but perhaps it's an efficacy problem and combining both would water-down the other. What I usually end up doing sounds more like a ritual than anything because it takes over 30 minutes to apply both products to my scalp, but I have to say it's well worth it after (finally) seeing some significant hair regrowth.
Rogaine itself is a foam, you must apply this FIRST before applying the NuNutrients hair serum. You must apply this to a 100% clean head, no hair products are anything on it. You don't want to block the transmission of any of the chemicals in the products that are helping you regrow your hair! That said, I also must tell you NOT to blow dry you hair. This is going to demolish your existing healthy hair and burn your cells around the follicles. Just gently towel dry your hair, and then apply the rogaine foam. Let the foam go deep into your pores, and let it air dry. Make sure to wash your fingers after you do it, you don't need hair there! (jk)
After you let the foam completely absorb, within 15 min you MUST apply the NuNutrients. This product is a spray, and I recommended that you actually spraying it on your hands if you only have a small section of hair that needs to be regrown. After it's on your hands, then massage it onto the problem areas of your scalp. However, if your whole head is missing hair, then the spray is actually easier than trying to apply it to your fingers then your hair. After you let this product dry on your scalp, do NOT by any means wear a hat!!! I was doing this for over a month because I was ashamed of my balding head, and it really does counter the affects of using these products.
Lastly, I can say that after 4 months of using this technique, I'm actually now starting to see results. I've used Rogaine by itself for over a year, but that alone wasn't doing the trick. I hope this review helps.

Can't tell if it working or not. How much faith do you have?Dec 25, 2014
I am a woman and I use the extra strength anyway. I am too old for pregnancies which is why they say women should not use the extra strength formula. They have never tested it for that and don't want a lawsuit. I have used both this Rogaine and other minoxidil from other companies. I never had a big shedding cycle when I first started using it. I can't say that it brought back lots of hair either. So I keep plugging along with this stuff. I only use it in the evening instead of twice/day because I would have to wash my hair everyday if I used it more than once/day and I just don't want to! I have been told that it works better at encouraging the hair to stay it than it doesn make new hair grow. That would be hard to prove unless I quit using it and it all fell out. But until I have a better solution, I am going to keep using it in hopes it delays having to use a wig or a hat all the time. So far I can fool people by using a hair style that hides the baldness and then use a little spray on hair color/thickener where it is the worst. I am disappointed in the application processes they now use. They used to have small pump bottles that would get it to my scalp easier. Now they give you an eye dropper which seems to just put on too much and it rolls off your scalp and the foam which gets on more hair than you want to use it on. I had one aerosol bottle left from the old days and I continue to fill it up with other liquids.

Ruined my hair, hasn't grown back.Jun 27, 2013
I started using this as an 18 year old who noticed thinning in the crown area. It wasn't to the point of being highly noticeable by anyone--just slightly thin if I ran my hand through it. Still, I thought Rogaine would be a good option to reverse my thinning and preempt further loss.
So I applied it religiously for four months. What made me stop? After months 3 or 4 I practically had a reverse yamakah! I'd say the crown area had 30 to 40% of the hair a full, healthy head would have. Now, I know that supposedly there is an initial shedding phase with Rogaine and then hair grows back, but I had already reached the 4 month mark where regrowth should be apparent, yet it wasn't. How much longer was I going to apply this chemical concoction to my hair hoping its effects do a complete about-face and actually start regrowing my hair? So I stopped. Now a year later, my crown is still just as thin as when I threw out the Rogaine.
Lesson learned: think before you gamble on things like this.

Like some other usersSep 02, 2014
In general, this product works for me. Like some other users, I noticed significant hair loss for the first month. Then after around 6 weeks, hair loss stopped almost completely, even when I blowdry my hair everyday. I'm not a fan of foamy hair product, but if it works, I will continue using it. I do not notice hair growth yet since I finished the 3 bottles in 2 months.
