increase of only 3.4 percent with placebo. Moreover, men using Rogaine
foam noted an average 70.6 percent increase in hair growth versus 42.2
percent of men on placebo.
A useful trick when
using Rogaine foam
sure that your hands are cold when applying Rogaine foam. Otherwise,
the foam will melt, and will be so similar to solution form. So just
rinse your fingers in cold water before applying the foam.
