Hi bosgirl, I've been using the womens rogaine since Feb. of 2014,not faithfully,sometimes its once a day other times its a 3-4 times a week. My hair got the same way so dry, so brittle. I still haven't seen much for improvement either. My question to anybody out there, is...has anyone felt like they get vertigo effects by using the product? Here lately I've been feeling that way. It's kinda hard to explain.
