It dosnt work very well for a receding hair line. However this product tends to work better with a dht blocker.however results maybe very slow and might take several months. look into buying biotin gold for healthy hair skin and nails.it works pretty well for a receding hair line. You can combine it with a dht blocker.
You only need to rub the required amount that the cap can hold on the spot you are interested in. This does not mean you rub Rogaine on all of your hair. I have very long hair and the two spots I cover do dry stiff and just need to be brushed smooth. The object is to rub the Rogaine into your scalp. Do let the Rogaine dry before brushing and remember that more Rogaine does not do any more good that the required amount. You must continue this twice a day treatment forever. If you do not, you will be back to bald spots again. I am far too vain not to continue this program.
