Re: ok be honest and please reply - does rogaine foam work?

I'm sorry but I can't answer your question. But, I'm having hair issues myself and I had a dermatologist appt. yesterday concerning this and she suggested that I use Women's Rogaine. Of course, you need to find out if there's a health problem before going with Rogaine. Such as, are you iron deficient, is thyroid working properly, etc? That's for a woman. For a guy there might be different health problems that need be checked. I would not start on Rogaine until you saw a doctor. Reason being, Rogaine is expensive and you have to use it for the rest of your life to keep whatever hair you get back. Otherwise, you'll just lose it again. So there's a big commitment involved. It can take 6 months or more before you start to see any results. Good luck.

Ok, i have been using rogaine for women for about 4 months and it is definately working. My hair was receeding on both sides of my bangs and got continously worse over time. I had blood work done and everything was fine, so my dermatologist recommended rogaine. I use it every morning and night, and yes there has been times that i forgot and my hair has never fallen back out. I will continue to use it forever, its a small price to pay, than to be balding.
