I'm thinking about using Rogaine, but my only concern is that this product is specifically designed for the vertex and not the top of the head. Does anyone know if Rogaine is effective on the crown?

should be effective everywhere you use it, if you use too much and it drips down your face you might see increased growth there too

I think Rogaine works best for the crown! And then works fairly well for top of the head. Works ok front 1/3. Although general theory is as you go closer to hairline, it will be less effective/less results.

Minox can be effective everywhere the clinical studies where only on the vertex so that is all they can claim it works on that does not mean it does not work other places. It just means that the FDA restricts the claims that can be made on the bottle.

Hi, I'm new on hairlosshelp, and thought I'd toss my 2 cents in on this one.

It appears that the weaker and more sensitive to DHT that hair is, the less it will respond to minox. However, I used the 2 per cent version about 20 years ago long enough to see it grow hair on my hairline that was fine and downy, but definitely new. New studies indicate that minoxidil may be superior at strengthening and thickening hair rather than regrowing new hair though.

I had an HT in september, and I've used minox all over the HT area since a few days post op. At the 2 month mark I'm starting to see growth already, although I've also been supplementing with copper peptides.

The bottom line is, if you don't at least give it the old college try on the crown and hairline, then it certainly won't work.
