I am a female, 36 years old with long Naturally curly hair. In the last 2 years have seen a dramatic decrease in hair. This runs in my family. After seeing the dermatologist to try to prevent any further loss it was recommended to me to use once a day mens Rogaine foam. Having long hair I am finding it very difficult to apply and am unsure what area to apply it to. I am worried I am wasting product on having it soak into my hair and not my scalp. Yet I want to make a valid effort to do this as its important to me to at least keep the hair I still have.
I should also point out that my hair “expands” so to speak when dry. Frizzy. I do see why some try to apply after a shower as that is when you can get to the scalp easier. Thanks for your time and i hope you can give me some insight.
Many people who use Rogaine in one form (such as the foam) may try it in another form (liquid). There may not be an easy, practical answer to your problem, but you can try the minoxidil liquid and see if that is easier for you to use. These medications are a waste in the hair, as their only value is on the scalp itself.
