I'll kick it off:

Once or twice a day................................................................................................Twice

Crown results.........................................................................................................nothing
Hairline results:.......................................................................................................far,far worse.
Do you like the way it makes your hair look......................................................yes & no. gives it a dull coating but makes it look thicker.
Did you experience a shed. Details...................................................................hasn't really stopped. could just be aggressive MPB.
Do you experience any facial puffiness............................................................. yes. helped by drinking lots of water, but still get it.
Does it make your facial skin look dry/crap.......................................................yes, sems a little worse. am i just imagining it though ?
Does it make your hair "tangle" and lose hair when brushing afterwards....yes, all the time. very disturbing.tangled hair pulls out in brush.
Did you take any before/after pics:........................................................................no. don't need to. i know what my hair looks like.
Any other comments...............................................................................................its only been 5 months so far which should be around the time i should begin seeing any results. I am not very hopeful though as my hairline has been decimated and i don't see ANY hair coming in.

Did you experience a shed. Details................................................................... yes and it was nasty, went on for 3 months and I still haven't 100% recovered.
Does it make your hair "tangle" and lose hair when brushing afterwards...... sometimes it will unless I wait for 5 minutes
Did you take any before/after pics:........................................................................ yes plenty
Any other comments............................................................................................... Best overall look to the hair after a topical application. Does it help? Maybe not more than the rogaine I used for 10 years but the cosmetic effect after is nice.

Did you use Minoxidil before switching to the Foam.Which brand................. Yes, many kinds for over 10 years, including ozbrew, Dr Lees, 2%, 5% etc.

Good idea Chrome!

When did you start using the Foam. (How many months so far).................. 4.5 months
Once or twice a day................................................................................................ Twice
Application area (crown/hairline)........................................................................ Hairline / temples
Crown results......................................................................................................... Not applicable, still thick there.
Hairline results:....................................................................................................... Temples gone - gone from NW2 to 3. Forelock was thick, now thin, even when dry.
Do you like the way it makes your hair look...................................................... In terms of cosmetic thickness - yes. In terms of what it's actually done - NO!!!!!!
Did you experience a shed. Details................................................................... MASSIVE shed! Started after 3-4 weeks. Lasted 2 months. Now had 6 weeks of nothing.
Does it make your hair "tangle" and lose hair when brushing afterwards.... A little.
Did you take any before/after pics:........................................................................ No.
Any other comments............................................................................................... I know it's early days, but I kinda wish I'd never started it.

Did you use Minoxidil before switching to the Foam.Which brand................. Only a few times (Kitkland). Even 1 application made me itch really badly.
How long did you use this for:.............................................................................. About a fortnight - once every other day or so. I all I could take.
Once or twice a day.............................................................................................. Once every two days. If that.
Crown results.......................................................................................................... N/A
Hairline results:....................................................................................................... N/A
Any other comments............................................................................................... Would never have used it regularly - too much irritation.

Do you use Finasteride, if so, what dose/how long........................................... 1.25 mg for 2 years. Then 4 months off cos of sides. Now .5mg every day - much better sides-wise (4.5 months)
Do you use Nizoral, if so, what dose/how long.................................................. Yes - once a week, plus I put half a bottle in some old Revivogen shampoo (is a big bottle so is quite dilute - use most days)

Any other coments................................................................................................ I'm really not happy with the foam - I've ost so much hair in the frontal third it's untrue. Bear in mind it's taen me 6 years to go from NW1 to NW2. To get to NW3 (with thinning) in 4.5 months is really frightening. But am gonna give it a year, to see if shedding really does equal regrowth. At the moment - nothing. Not even a vellus. And the rst of my hair is looking frizzy and unhealthy. Not impressed at all....

Did you experience a shed. Details...................................................................I have been experiencing a shed since about the 1 month mark. It seems to be slowing now.

Did you take any before/after pics:........................................................................ I have some before

Once or twice a day.............................................................................................. Once

When did you start using the Foam. (How many months so far).................. Nov./ '06 Almost six months.
Once or twice a day................................................................................................ Twice
Application area (crown/hairline)........................................................................ Crown/Top/Hairline
Crown results......................................................................................................... Some thickening
Hairline results:....................................................................................................... Lots of new vellus hairs
Do you like the way it makes your hair look...................................................... Emphatic yes!
Did you experience a shed. Details................................................................... I went through an initial shed in the beginning, and some again now but it hasn't affected the overall appearance of my hair so far. If anything, it just looks better overall now even with the sheds.
Does it make your hair "tangle" and lose hair when brushing afterwards.... Not that I've noticed.
Did you take any before/after pics:........................................................................ Unfortunately, no.
Any other comments............................................................................................... Overall I'm extremely happy with the foam. It makes my hair look great when I use it, it dries quickly, and it seems to be giving me good results so far. I think it is the best minoxidil product I've ever used.

Did you use Minoxidil before switching to the Foam.Which brand................. I used Spectral DNC for two months prior, and Xandrox 5% and 12.5% for five years before that. Originally began with 2% Rogaine in the year 2000.
How long did you use this for:.............................................................................. See above.
Once or twice a day.............................................................................................. Always twice a day.
Crown results.......................................................................................................... Initially shed, then held okay for a while before tapering off, prompting me to begin taking finasteride.
Hairline results:....................................................................................................... Shedding and lots of vellus growth, but not much in the way of gains.
Any other comments...............................................................................................

Do you use Finasteride, if so, what dose/how long........................................... 1.25mg of finasteride daily for five years.
Do you use Nizoral, if so, what dose/how long.................................................. Dr. Lee's Regrowth shampoo with 2% ketoconazole

When did you start using the Foam. (How many months so far).................. 6 months
Once or twice a day................................................................................................ Varies (at least once)
Application area (crown/hairline)........................................................................ Hairline and top diffues thinning
Crown results......................................................................................................... NA
Hairline results:....................................................................................................... Noticable, New Growth, Very happy
Do you like the way it makes your hair look...................................................... Yes, I actually use it in the morning as a styling product now :-) It holds my hair in place the way I like it almost like hairspray and also gives it a thicker appearance!

Did you experience a shed. Details................................................................... Yes for a few weeks only but made things look noticably worse for a while. Lost alot around the temples especially where I apply it most. But that is also now where I am getting great regrowth!

Does it make your hair "tangle" and lose hair when brushing afterwards.... Not that bad
Did you take any before/after pics:........................................................................ No, but will soon post picks of the new growth, it is obvious new growth in my temple and hairline area where there was definately no hair before. The hairs are extremely healthy thick terminal short hairs where I used to have only fuzz.

Any other comments............................................................................................... Definately working better for me than liquid. I love it... you just need to give it time to be effective like starting minox all over again.

Did you use Minoxidil before switching to the Foam.Which brand................. Dr Lees 5%
How long did you use this for:.............................................................................. About 1 1/2 years
Once or twice a day.............................................................................................. Just once because it makes my hair look like crap. Now with the foam I can use it twice per day!

Crown results.......................................................................................................... NA
Hairline results:....................................................................................................... Fuzz with a few terminal but lost again
Any other comments............................................................................................... Love the foam, think you need to stick with it for results. I almost switched back a few months ago but stuck with it since I figured if it caused a shed it must be more effective. Just took a while to kick in for me and not I think I am seeing the rewards! Many comments received from friends, family and co-workers on improvement!

Do you use Finasteride, if so, what dose/how long........................................... about 18 months 1.25mg per day Fincar
Do you use Nizoral, if so, what dose/how long.................................................. 2-3 times per week for about a year

Any other coments................................................................................................ Since I have started treatment, my hair has improved. I have noticed the most improvement within the last couple months since about 6 months or so now on the foam. I truely believe the foam is far more effective then regular liquid minox. I think the initial shed makes it seem that it is not working or getting worse for many. Also that it takes a while to recover from this and see results. If liquid minox has worked for you at all, I am fairly confident that the foam will produce better results but you need to stick with it long enough. aAlso, something you did not have within the poll .... I receive absoloutely no irritation with the foam. With liquid (even Dr Lees -pg) I have to be careful! Also, why would it cause a shed when switching from liquid to foam unless it is more effective? Good Post Chrome!

This is cool. When did that product come on the market? I do use the liquid form and I totally hate it. I find it a pain to apply and I hate the greasy look of the hair. So you agree that it is quite easy to use?

When did you start using the Foam. (How many months so far).................. 6 mo
Once or twice a day................................................................................................2x per day
Application area (crown/hairline)........................................................................ entire top of head
Crown results......................................................................................................... diffuse loss increased
Hairline results:....................................................................................................... diffuse loss increased
Do you like the way it makes your hair look...................................................... Not much hair left anywhere
Did you experience a shed. Details................................................................... 1-2 month mark I had a lot of hair fall out (none of which grew back)
Does it make your hair "tangle" and lose hair when brushing afterwards.... hair is shaved to a #2
Did you take any before/after pics:........................................................................ yes
Any other comments............................................................................................... So much hair shed during this 6 mo, that I must have had some of it regrow, but it hs grown back thinner and weaker. People have commented that I'm balding since being 3+ mo into the foam. Before using foam, people never noticed any hair loss, with my hair shaved short. The foam has been disaterous for me.

Did you use Minoxidil before switching to the Foam.Which brand................. brand name minox
How long did you use this for:.............................................................................. 5 mo
Once or twice a day.............................................................................................. 1x per day
Crown results.......................................................................................................... minor diffuse loss
Hairline results:....................................................................................................... minor diffuse loss
Any other comments............................................................................................... I never noticed any regrowth with the liquid. Perhaps slight increased loss after applying liquid for 3 months, but not so much that I could be sure the continued loss was caused by the minox. The increased hair loss from using the foam is undeniable, and pictures can prove it.

Do you use Finasteride, if so, what dose/how long........................................... no
Do you use Nizoral, if so, what dose/how long.................................................. 3x per week in winter, 2x per week in summer

Do you experience any facial puffiness............................................................. I was originally, but too a tip I read on here to not apply with a wet scalp. Not sure why but it helped.
Does it make your facial skin look dry/crap....................................................... No problems there.

My biggest side effect concern so far is that I seem to be seeing an increase in body hair. That is a main reason I cut back to 1x a day. Anyone else seeing similar problems?
