I've been using Rogaine for about 8 months now and see results consistent with what the website promised. My thin patch is less thin as short new growth is close to the scalp. The spot isn't going away, but is a bit less noticeable. I also have hair growth around my forehead which isn't really what I wanted, but isn't too bad and is worth the extra hair in the thin spot on top.
One thing about the foam versus topical - I switched from topical to foam after 4 months, and the short new growth I had fell out and nothing new grew. The topical definitely works better than the foam for me.
Yes, I'd recommend this product
