I went to the doctor yesterday to address the on-going issue with my hair loss ( i am 29 and have been experiencing this on and off of the last 12 years) and he recommended rogaine but the 5% foam. even though its not for women. I called rogaine and they pretty much said that if the doctor said i should use it then i should.
Im just concerned because i havent read of alot of women using it. I go in for blood work in two weeks to rule out anything serious ( ie iron deficiency, thyroid issues etc). But im just a bit concern as to why women can’t use the foam.
The 5% solution of minoxidil for women or men are just the same. The women’s version has an alcohol base (easier to style), while the men’s has an oil base (harder to style). I generally recommend 5% minoxidil for all my patients (both men and women). The foam is better for effectiveness and styling. Women can use the Rogaine Foam.
