How to Apply Women's ROGAINE® Foam

We’ll walk you through the do’s and don’ts of application, from how to prepare, how much to use, and the best technique for thorough coverage.


How to apply Women's ROGAINE® Foam

Women’s ROGAINE® Foam fits conveniently into your existing beauty routine. Apply half a capful just once daily. Here’s how:

Step 1: Rinse your hands with cold water, then dry. This will help to keep the foam from dissolving on contact with your warm skin.

Step 2: Open your container by following these steps: First, hold the light blue ring with your thumb and forefinger. With your other hand, twist the translucent cap until the arrow on the cap lines up with the arrow on the light blue ring. Finally, tilt cap back and pull off cap.

Step 3: Hold the can vertically upside down with nozzle pointing downwards, dispense half a capful of foam to a non-absorbent surface, such as a soap dish or a plate. Part hair to expose the scalp area were you are experiencing thinning hair. Apply directly to the scalp with a massaging motion. Remember that using more foam won't result in thicker or faster results. Half a capful daily is really all you need!

Step 4: Use the pads of your fingers to gently and thoroughly massage the foam into your scalp, starting from the back and working forward (added benefit: relaxing head rub!) and let it air-dry. Consistency is the key to success here -- if you stop using Women’s ROGAINE® Foam daily, your hair loss will resume. So definitely add it to your “desert island beauty essentials” list.

Step 5: Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water.  Don’t forget to rinse the small bowl or saucer as well.  

For Best Results:

  • Use only the recommended dosage of half a capful once a day. Using more or more frequently will not enhance or hasten hair growth.
  • Apply Women's ROGAINE® Foam to dry hair or damp hair that was towel-dried but not to wet hair.
  • Follow your normal styling routine after applying the foam and letting it air-dry.
  • Do not use Women's ROGAINE® Foam on the same day that you receive a chemical treatment on your hair.
  • It’s OK to use Women's ROGAINE® Foam on hair that has been colored or treated.
