Minimal resultsMar 10, 2010
By Carson King
I used the Rogaine foam faithfully/consistently for 7 months, but I did not see much difference at all. It must be my bad luck to be in the 15% of the population for which this product does not work. That being said, if you're going to try it, here are some things to keep in mind (which other reviewers have noted, as well):
1. You have to apply the stuff twice a day for the rest of your life, or at least as long as you want to try to thicken your hair. Although it's not the worst discipline, I grew weary of having to do it. Too much trouble, I found.
2. It's expensive.
3. As others have said, it works best just to spray it directly on the crown of the head.
4. I don't think the odor is bad. It dissipates after a few minutes, anyway.
5. Definitely use the foam, not the liquid solution. The liquid solution is horribly messy.
Hope you have better luck than I did.

Terrible if you have hairJan 21, 2011
I guess I have too much hair for this product as I found it virtually impossible to get this stuff past my hair onto the scalp. As another reviewer said if you have a bald spot it might work better, but then why would you need a mousse?

Rogaine 5% MinoxidilDec 04, 2013
By Robert Robert
this product definitely works with continued use. However, it is extremely important to use the amount that the product recommends. I
applied more of this hair treatment than recommended which gave me weird chest pain, cardiac rhythm problems. So i stopped using it. Keep in mind that Minoxidil happens to be a medication used to treat patients with heart beat irregularities. So if you are going to use it, be sure to use just as directed. If so, you should have no problems. I stopped because I know i may get tempted to use more than advised. Otherwise, this product certainly works.

Wish It Worked FasterApr 04, 2010
By Del James
I'm 26, started using Rogaine about five months ago. Results didn't show until about four months. My hair loss started becoming noticeable about two years ago when I was 24. Strangely enough I think I've seen more improvement in the front (temples) than in the back. I definitely think the product works but it requires a lot of patience and dedication. Very important note: I've been using Rogaine with a DHT blocker that I take morning and night. From my little research and experience so far, Rogaine re-grows the hair while the DHT stops or slows the hair loss. Rogaine doesn't seem to do much for the hair loss itself so I think it's necessary to use a DHT blocker to preserve the hair that's already grown.
Here's a not-so-encouraging fact: this product pretty much requires an endless commitment. That means that whatever hair growth is generated by Rogaine is sustainable only through continued use of the product. (Stop using the product and the new hair goes away.) I contemplated doing hair transplant surgery but decided not to because even after surgery it's recommended (if not required) to use a hair re-growth product to maintain the rest of hair around the treated area. Until there's significant breakthrough with stem cell research, Rogaine seems to be the best option.
It would be great if it somehow worked faster. But hair growth just isn't a speedy process.

Five Stars (not really)Apr 11, 2010
I reviewed this product a week prior to this post. The review lasted on Amazon just a few days before Amazon removed it. I gave it two stars. There was nothing offensive in my review so it is befuddling why Amazon removed. So I give five stars in this repost... if this post lasts then a skew may exist for keeping high-star reviews vs low-star reviews. Anyway, I have some important items to share here. Just two stars in the prior review because of a couple of major gripes: (1) too strong of fragrance and (2) just mild regrowth results. If not for the scent, I award the Rogaine foam 3.5 stars.
Years ago I used the original non-foam Rogaine product. That was before Rogaine Foam entered the market. That was 17 years ago. And I had good results with the non-foam version until I developed an allergy to the polypropylene-glycol (PPG). So I had to stop use about 12 years ago. Back then there was no foam version.
Turns out there are many like me who develop skin allergy to PPG. Fast forward 10 years... the foam version hits market which uses glycerin in place of polypropylene-glycol. The glycerin is much better tolerated. So restarting use the Rogaine two years ago, this time foam version, I had no allergic reaction. Yet the new product now has an added very strong fragrance. Still there was some regrowth using the product. So do try the product and see for yourself. It may work for you. Yet keep your expectations in order. And beware that when you first apply there will be an overwhelming flowery scent that lasts for about 45 minutes until it dries, which can be embarrassing if not accounted for. In case makers of Rogaine are reading, please make a fragrance-free foam version (and soon). My wife has a sensitive nose and complains mightily so I usually have to leave the room.
