Q.

I bought some Rogaine, and it says to only apply to the top of the scalp. Why is that?

A.
The top of the scalp is where the clinical trials were performed in women. Thus the company is limited in what they can recommend, especially for an over-the-counter product. The product can certainly be applied to other parts of the scalp and will help regrow hair there, too.
