Have women used rogaine (minoxidil) for frontal scalp hair loss with good results?

In brief: Yes.

I know the package insert says it "has only been proven to work" on the vertex (crown) of the scalp - because clinical trials were conducted on that area, so the fda says the manufacturer cannot claim that it works anywhere else.
However, in the real world, it works the same way on the frontal scalp as it does on the crown.
