    Roro, so sorry I missed your message somehow...here I am over 2 months later.

    I'm at 4 months. I don't see a lot of obvious regrowth except maybe in my bangs area (I'm treating that, my temples, and the left side of my crown/top of my head). I'm shedding so much again that maybe the rogaine can't keep up. I go back to the scalp specialist at the end of January for a recheck.

    How are you?

    Hi girls, i wanted to give a little update. This is what my hair looks like now. In the beginning of this thread you can see how it looked two years and one year ago.
    It has kept on improving.
    I have been using Minoxidil since april 2015 (so more than 2 years now) and i am quite happy with my hair. I think it has recovered at least 80 %, which is more than i hoped for when i started. I still shed quite a lot (but maybe that is normal for me)
    So don't worry too much about shedding, it is not so much about how much you shed, but more about how much grows back.

    LOOKS FANTASTIC

    Wow Ruth. Looks fantastic. I am just over a year. Mine not perfect but it really never was. I too have some fairly heavy sheds and I am thinking I wouldn't have any hair without the rogaine so I will continue to use it. Your hair looks fabulous.

    Ruth - wow, your hair looks fantastic! I just started Rogaine 5% foam two days ago and looking at your past photos, my hair is similar to how you were when you started. Its getting shorter.

    I am hoping my results will be similar!

    Thank you for updating!

    Wow! It does look better! It looks more dense. (or denser - not sure which is correct) It's not only fuller but it has more substance. Not sure if this make sense but I can see a difference.

    Keep us posted! Come back in 6 months or a year. It's so helpful to hear from people long-term.

    Also is it safe to use the 5% foam 2x a day?

    Hi Ruth,
    Have you experienced seasonal shedding at all? I'm reaching My first year on Rogaine and noticed a lot of shedding in the last few weeks. I'm wondering if it's normal....

    Looks great! My hair looks similar to your start so I am hoping I get the same results. I am only one month in and I am currenlty experiencing awful shedding! When did you notice your shedding stopped?
