Hey guys, I saw as many of us have seen is equate minoxidil regrowth agent at wal mart. It contains 5 % minoxidil and is a lot cheaper compared to the rogaine at 5 %. I am in college so this cash is important, would it be alright to switch to the equate minoxidil drops, not foam., Or is the rogaine foam one of a kind?

Agreed, switching to equate saved me a lot of money while helping me deal with hair loss. Iíve always had thick hair, and I started to worry when my hair began thinning when I was only in my 20s! Similar to you, I donít have a big budget to spend on products, but still want good quality and this place helped me find Equate, smartgeneric.com

I also happily made the switch. Just as effective.
