It works....just takes some time...Dec 07, 2012
By Jack B. Brunson Jr.
I used it before, hair grew back (although took a couple months). Stopped using it, hair fell out. Sooo, back on the Rogaine Train. TOOT TOOT!

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.

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.

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?

Seems to be workingOct 22, 2014
I noticed this summer my hair was thinning around the front-center part of my head and was apparently going to leave me with a much higher hairline (the hair on the vertex of my head seemed to be intact). Since I already have a high forehead to begin with, I wanted to try to at least preserve the hair I had left. I spoke to a dermatologist first who did some bloodwork to make sure the hair loss wasn't due to a nutritional deficiency or some other problem. After she was satisfied it wasn't either of those things, we talked about Rogaine & Propecia. I decided to try Rogaine given some of the latest reported permanent side-effects of Propecia that I'd read about.
So far, I'm pleased to say my hair seems to have stopped thinning. It actually looks like it's thickened a little, but you can still see where it's thinner than the rest of the hair on my head. But, this is really all I wanted - just keep what I have and live with it being a little thinner. Better than losing it altogether if you ask me! I saw results in a few weeks, but I think this is because I started using it early in the hair loss process - something which I think will help.
I did not experience any initial hair loss after starting the treatment like the manufacturer mentioned (in fact, they say this a good sign), but it seems to have worked anyway. As others have said, it does leave a residue in your hair, but it's not really that noticeable once you comb it back into place after massaging the stuff into your scalp. Then again, I have brown hair so it may be different if you have lighter hair.
I would say if your hair is thinning, give it a try. Odds are it'll at least let you keep what you have left. Don't wait until you've lost most of the hair - I think it's better to start when you still have some healthy hair follicles in place for the Rogaine to help. I also suggest talking to a doctor, too, just to make sure it's not something else causing the hair loss. I know no medication is 100% effective, but I can't help but wonder if some of those who say it isn't working for them might have something else going on in their systems causing the hair loss.
I'm a 40-year old man with male pattern baldness running mostly in my mother's side of my family, though my father and paternal grandfather both had receding hairlines, too.
