Question:

I just bought some minoxidil in the form of Rogaine foam and it says not to apply it to any areas of my scalp but the back. My problem area is the front and middle. Should I not use minoxidil, not use this form of minoxidil, or should I just use Rogaine any where that is thinning?

Answer:

The original studies with minoxidil, like 20 years ago, were only done on the crown so they are only allowed, by the FDA, to say it works in the crown. In reality it can work anywhere there are miniaturized hairs. So yes use it on the front and middle, anywhere you are thinning. I have been using it for over 10 years from front to back. Disregard the statement about it just working on the crown, it’s false.

Your surgery was about 7 months ago so you should be seeing some growth. Minoxidil will help the grafts grow in faster but once they have totally grown in, a year, you don’t need to use it on the grafts for them to keep growing. But I would suggest using it in the area of the grafts and behind just to keep the original hairs as much as possible.
