I bought a Rogaine knock-off product--Wal-Mart's brand--Equate. It was only eighteen dollars for a three month supply. My hair is a little thin, I want the thick lustrous I had as a ten year old--probably not possible but I'm giving it a shot. The only thing that worries me is are these instructions: Wash hands if you use your fingers to massage product into the scalp AND make sure hair is dry before going to bed.

If I don't wash my hands will I have hairy fingers? If I don't dry my hair before bed will my pillow get wet and then will my face come in contact with the wet pillow and then...will I grow facial hair?

I am ordering a Hijab just in case. Actually this would cover up the thinning hair too. And hey, if I looked like her I wouldn't care if I were bald. Okay, I might care a little. Okay a lot. Okay, I'm a little bit vain. So I guess I will continue with the Rogaine knock-off and just put up with the hairy fingers. And the facial hair? I have tweezers and know how to use them.

Hey, maybe this is a great marketing idea for the hair growing companies, just think how growing extra hair could help make winter more 'bear'-able! LOL!

Love your post!

Well I am not there yet the bush just got cut the other day and most of the hair came off the top and came from being thinned.

How come hair grows where you don't want it? Like on your chest? Not that there is anything wrong with that if you are a man!

I think Colette Amelia is commenting on my nearly hairless chest :-)

The good new is this: If you grow hair on your face and fingers you can become a carnie. Every carnival needs a wolf woman.

Yes, you may in fact grow hairy fingers. There once was a boy who after applying such things to his sparse and flimsy head, dried his hands by wiping down the front of his naked chest. What do you thing happened? Yes, 2 stripes of thicker hair. DO NOT try that at home.

Hairy face? You could do a great Werewolf impression that way! Heh, heh.

I know that I will be at this crossroads someday in my life---so I'm so glad I have you to be my guinea pig to know what to use and what to STAY AWAY FROM!!

Happy hairiness.

Lynne, your creative sense of humor never ceases to amaze me. You can take something so simple and make it so entertaining. By the way, let us all know if the Rogaine works. I have seen some older women lately who could really use something that works.

P.S. I do not consider myself an older woman yet. (Except for the kink in my back and my knees that can't be kneeled on, I feel like I am sixteen.)
