Update: See my more detailed newer post on Minoxidil (Rogaine) beard growth.
Related to my previous post, further evidence of Rogaine’s positive effect on hair growth is found in an unusual experiment. Thousands of people around the world are using Rogaine (Minoxidil) on their faces in order to grow more facial hair. Moreover, many are posting their results in places such as this forum.
I first discovered this 400 plus page thread a few years ago when it had less than 300 pages. It is worth going through all the pages, since there are numerous posts from people who have shared their successful before and after photos, Previously non-existent to weak beard hair can become significantly denser after the regular application of Rogaine. The internet offers unlimited opportunities of discovery and research, and this is one find that continues to entertain me.
I am not sure if the long-term application of Rogaine to one’s face is a good idea. These people’s experiences seem to suggest that there are almost never any major side effects in doing so. This makes me a bit more confident in continuing to use Rogaine foam on my scalp once a day.
