I have been using it for about three weeks now,my hair has become more thin.I heard first the hair thins out and then after about 4 weeks it starts thickening.I hope that's true.Because I am really upset that I have lost the thickness I had before using this rogaine foam.Though no other side effects.

Rogaine should be taken off the market. I had a serious allergic reaction. My face, eyes,ears and neck are all swollen.

Very disappointed! Used it for three weeks & more hair fell out than ever!! I stopped using it & immediatedly experienced less hair loss. Applying it was easy. Left enough of a greasy feel, which made styling a little more difficult but tolerable.

I am 44 years old and when a 9 year old child said to me that I was bald, I had to do something. I have been using Rogaine for 3 years and my hair has never look so thick and has never been so long. I will use it for the rest of my life.
