In connection to this I have a somewhat silly question but I hope those who have used rogaine for longer and have seen effects can tell me.
On the leaflet it said:
"For best results, apply half a capful 2 times a day directly to the scalp in the hair loss area. Using more than the recommended amount will not improve results. Each can should last one month, if used as directed."
I have thinning on top too so should I be trying to spread the half capful to every area? I doubt half a cupful of rogaine is strong enough to have an effect on such a large area.
Depends if you have long or short hair. my hair is buzzed so i find half capful is enough to cover the whole nw6 area, i just put it on top and then message it with my fingers and since there are no long hair, i feel the foam is absorbed to the scalp directly.
For ppl with long hair some of the foam might end up on the hair not the scalp so they might need to use more than half capful to cover a large area (nw6 area)
