Weekly summary - 152th week --Advantage or Rogaine Foam

Men's Rogaine Foam-Rogaine Hair Regrowth Treatment, 4/2.11 oz. cans (4 Month Supply)I think many of the readers here do not know the difference of Rogaine foam with normal Rogaine solution. I am not sure you notice there is two types of Rogaine in the market!!!
Rogaine foam has the following advantages over Rogaine solution and Kirkland minoxidil:
  • Rogaine foam has the advantage of not having several irritating chemicals that may make it less greasy. Unlike Rogaine solution, the foam does not have propylene glycol, an agent that commonly causes irritation and  may even cause an allergic contact dermatitis. The incidence of chronic itching was 1.1 percent versus 6.6 percent seen in a separate study using Rogaine solution.
  • With respect to Rogaine foam versus the generic solution, the foam is relatively easier to use and some professionals think that the foam is possibly more effective because of the delivery mechanism.
  • The foam produces better compliance amongst Rogaine users. A survey was done among hundreds of men which found that Men’s Rogaine Foam was overwhelmingly preferred vs Rogaine solution. Possible advantages of Rogaine foam are: ease of application, lack of dripping, quick absorption and drying, and ability to fit easily into a daily routine.
Unlike Rogaine solution, "the foam formulation does not have propylene glycol, an agent that commonly causes irritation and occasionally causes an allergic contact dermatitis," said Dr. Elise A. Olsen, professor of medicine in the divisions of dermatology and oncology at Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina.
"Many patients prefer a foam versus a solution that may drip on application to the scalp. The foam is not greasy or drying," she added.
In the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, Olsen and a multicenter team of researchers report results of a clinical trial in which 315 men with hair loss were randomly assigned to foam versions of 5% minoxidil, the active ingredient in Rogaine, or placebo.
After 16 weeks, hair counts in the target area were significantly greater in the 164 men applying Rogaine foam compared with the 151 men applying the placebo foam, the investigators report. With Rogaine foam, there was an average increase in hair counts of 13.4 percent over initial counts, compared with an average increase of only 3.4 percent with placebo.
Moreover, men using Rogaine foam noted an average 70.6 percent increase in hair growth versus 42.2 percent of men on placebo.
Rogaine foam was well tolerated in 143 men who continued using it for up to 52 weeks. There were no significant differences in side effects between the two groups.
The incidence of chronic itching was 1.1 percent versus 6.6 percent seen in a separate study
using Rogaine solution.
In "consumer use" studies, Olsen and colleagues note, foam Rogaine was rated significantly higher on several aesthetic attributes compared with Rogaine solution, including "ease of application, lack of dripping, quick absorption and drying, and ability to fit easily into a daily routine."
The current study was supported by Rogaine maker Pfizer Inc.

If your skin is sensitive and do not want to risk yourself with minoxidil or Rogaine solution, you may opt for Rogaine Foam.

I guess you need to log in to your ebay account, there is a tab for open a case. Else, you can open a case in Paypal. You can only open an dispute case once, wither in ebay or in Paypal
