Montanaskigirl I use the foam too. I know that I definitely miss areas of my scalp when I apply it. But from what I understand, when the rogaine is absorbed it still effects the areas around where you apply it. It literally takes me 30 seconds to apply it. If I just showered, I'll put it directly on my wet scalp, and if my hair is dry, I flip my head upside down so that I have better access to my scalp. I just put a little bit of the foam in my hand, distribute it to my fingertips and then massage my scalp. The top, sides and bottom of my head each get a squirt of foam. I hope this helps!
