    The safest dosage of minoxidil for women to use is, of course, the 2% concentration. This moderate formula was created for women's use and can be bought over the counter at any pharmacy as Women's Rogaine. Some hair loss specialists would suggest a woman use the men's 5% formula for severe hair thinning.

    I use 2% as recommended by my dermatologist and after nearly 8 months I notice some growth. I use Volume Hair plus on top just to conceal one area and occasionally a regular hair spray for permanent fix when I go to gym. Some women use 1% but I think that as far as I know 2% was developed for women.

    My dermatologist also mentioned that the 5% Rogaine is most advised for usage - women included

    So, I am 25 and have been experiencing hair loss and shedding for around 5 years now. I have been using Men's Rogaine for around 4-5 years now. I have been told by three different dermatologists that it is in my best interest to use it and I believe it has helped. From what I understand most dermatologists recommend women using 5% just like men. It just works better if it works for you.
    Rogaine (Minoxidil) is easy to use, and best of all—it works. I found I definitely had increased hair growth. I use the Men's foam (buy the 3-pack, its much cheaper).
    If you're curious I get it online from . It is safe here have a very affordable price and have an excellent service. You can use discount code "GETMYSALE" to get 10% off.
    I think it's important for everyone here to see a doctor to ensure that Rogaine is right for you. I wish you all the best with your hair growth (on your head of course)!

    Smile Using 5% Rogaine for Men

    I tried the rogaine 2% for women foam and it not only didn't do anything, but it was turning my hair a little yellowish. I am 61 and don't color my hair and have lots of silvery white. I asked my dermatologist about what to do for thinning hair and she said to use the men's 5%. My dermatologist is probably around 40 and has beautiful skin and hair, and she said she uses it every day! I never had bald spots, but always had very fine and short "baby" hair on each side of my crown in the front. I have been using it for about two months and my hair is definitely filling in and getting longer in those spots. It is also a touch darker. It is not a huge difference, but it is slowly working. I also found that Walmart's generic brand was the cheapest. I might try it on my eyebrows too, after reading some comments
