Rogaine Foam is a newer form of the Rogaine classic liquid droplets – and although some people perceive that side effects of Rogaine foam are different, they theoretically should be exactly the same as anything else – the only reason it is in foam format, is for the sake of easier application (or perceived easier application).
The worst reported side effects are as follows:
- severe scalp irritation;
- unwanted growth of facial hair;
- chest pain, fast heartbeats;
- swelling in your hands or feet, rapid weight gain;
- a light-headed feeling, like you might pass out;
- headache, dizziness, confusion; or
- flushing (warmth, redness, or tingly feeling)
These side effects don’t occur in just everyone – but the risk is always going to be there.
Is Rogaine foam any different in helping hair growth?
The application is different, but it is the same effectiveness as any Minoxidil product. And minoxidil, the main ingredient of Rogaine and Rogaine foam, which helps temporarily increase hair growth, but after time, it stops working – their are better methods and alternative methods to minoxidil which would produce better results, and would be better in terms of long term use. Please see our blog for these methods as we have talked about them all over the website.
