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.

Rogaine Works For Me.....Read My ReviewNov 16, 2013
By David Pangione
Do I like Rogaine....
I love it!!!
Let me tell everyone a quick story. Im in my mid 40's. back when I was mid 20's Ihad a friend ( same age). He developed a large bald spot on his crown. - and that was 20 years ago
Fast forward... 20 years
I lost touch with him for about 15 years and eventually set up a dinner to meet.
Since I havent seen him for so long, I figured he must be completely bald.
That evening, I met up with him. To my amazement, he had a complete head of hair. I was shocked. Dont get me wrong. It wasnt the head of hair you see on the posters hung on a barber shop wall. But still, no bald spot, no receding hair line.
I got up to go to the bathroom 3x so that I could come back and look at the crown of his head.to see if there was a weave or something unusual going on.. I looked very natural.
So over the next 9 months, I would talk to hi on occasion.Finally I said to him, what s up with your hair? Did you get a weave or hair transplant.
He then told me about Rogaine w Minoxidil and how good it worked for him. For the next few months I started thinking about it. I was never completely bald. I lost my hair on about a 4" area on the crown, the hair line receded and the top was thinning a bit. All typical for a 40 something I would think.
I started to think that my hair never really completely fell out. Maybe with Rogaine, I could have the same results that my friend did.
I ordered my 1st 3 month supply.
What I did from here was for the next 6 months, i buzzed my head ( military cut) never shaving it. I bought a hair clipper and every week buzzed it 2x down to nothing. I used the rogaine as prescribed..
Here is where is gets cool.
I remember grabbing a mirror and looking at the back of my head. I definitely say new hair growth without a doubt. But i said to myself does it warrant the price of the Rogaine.
Now , I stopped shaving my head and started to let my hair grow in around month 9.
MY God....It worked.....
The hair that was there was a new revived consistancy. Thicker and full. The entire top of my head was filling in. The bald spot in the back now has hair growing on it and filling in ( it really is filling in)
Do I have the hair I did when I was 20 - absolutely not BUT
I have a great head of hair.
My hair follicles seem to somehow been revitalized with the foam and YES, it does grow new hair back.
I read the packaging prior to starting and it states somewhere that you ay not get the same results as others or something to that extent. You may not grow hair at all....
For me... I enjoy it.
When i was young, i used to use hair gels and sprays. The foam is nothing different. A small bit in the morning and at night as well.
I actually have friends asking me whats up with my hair...lol
Like I had a replacement ( very funny)
ANyway... I hope this review finds its way to other s with interest

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.

Easy to apply, thickens hair, does it work? Time will tell...Dec 11, 2012
By M. Odonnell
I started experiencing hair loss when I was 20. I noticed copious amounts of hair on my bathroom counter and saw my forehead was getting larger. Shortly after I started using the classic Rogaine 5 percent solution. It was difficult to apply to the scalp and made my morning and evening routines longer than usual. After a year I stopped using it. Why? I don't know, I just kind of stopped.
Now I'm 26, my hair loss has gotten dramatically worse so I finally said "Why not?" and decided to give Rogaine another shot. I bought a one month supply of the foam and was so very happy on how easy it is to apply. It's a creamy mousse that takes less than 30 seconds to apply to the scalp. I simply spray 3-4 small mounds of the foam on different areas of my hair/scalp and rub it in. Because it is a mousse style product, it will stiffen your hair a little bit, but If used and styled properly I find it actually thickens my hair. I let it dry for 5 minutes and then I'll run a comb through, which breaks up the stiff hair and leaves me with a thicker looking hair. It's so noticeably thicker that people have said "Your hair looks thicker."
Since I have been using it for only a month, I can't tell if it's actually regrowing hair. I will report later after a few more months.
-EASY TO APPLY (FINALLY!)
-Thickens hair, if styled properly
-Doesn't drip like old Rogaine
-No irritated scalp
-A little expensive
Yes I included expense as a con. But in a way, Rogaine has great quality control. I've used generic minoxidil and it irritated my scalp badly. I know that generic minoxidil foam does exist, but you really don't save that much money buying the stuff. This Rogaine foam was excellent and I think it's worth the extra money.
