Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, but I wasn't sure where it should go.


I finished chemo 5 years ago and my hair is very thin on top. Dermatologist recommended 5% Minoxidil, which I stared a month ago .(Costoco brand) I think I read on here some women have used the foam, which I now bought. Reading the box it says it is for hair loss at the back only, and my thinning, area where I use it is in the front. Just wondering if you have had any success with it. Thanks

I have been using minoxidil 5% for 8 years now and it works great to keep my hair full. I have never had any issues and have continued to use it during and after treatment.
