Iím thinking about adding Rogaine Foam to my treatment plan and was wondering what people here thought about it. Is Rogaine foam better than plain Rogaine.

I hope someone will answer your question because I might want to give Rogaine foam a try too.

I have wavered over the years as to whether or not I am a fan of Monoxidil.
I certainly do not want to be the doctor that tells a patient to stop using Minoxidil and have them experience a wave of thinning shortly after. However,
if a patient inquires into the different types of Minoxdil and wants to know what I have seen to be the most effective, I tell them the 5% foam or find a compounding pharmacy that makes a stronger formula(10%). The foam tends to stay on the scalp longer and therefore can probably give a full effect even when used once a day at night. Using it this way allows you to wash it out in the morning and not have to deal with the hair styling issues.
