Hi Guys,

I use rogaine/regaine - different spelling of the product between US and Asia.

does anyone know the best/cheapest place in singapore to buy rogaine liquid?

also, does anyone know why you cant get the foam version here also?

Thanks

Have you asked at a pharmacy. A lot of things freely available here have to be sold by a pharmacist in the UK (and the foam is one of them)and it might be the same here.

You won't be able to find the foam version around here. Don't even ask why. It is just not here.

The cheapest would be from small family-run shops operated in Chinatown or heartland HDB areas. But you will be hard pressed to be able to find one! I'd rather buy from Watson's or Guardian or even Johor Bahru across the Causeway.

I wonder if it's one of those products more suitable for caucasians so no market here. There are a few things I just cannot find, simply because there is no demand.

my sister's colleague has cancer and used silkpro hair tonic for her hair problem. she recommends it but it might not work for everyone. why is there a lot of people in singapore who are balding?

There must be. I'd give my eye teeth for a L'Oreal Revitalift 10 and a nice violet shampoo but I'm only offered hair fall formula and whitening stuff. I am going to leave here wrinkled and brassy.

I think you should do some research on Rogaine and the like, there has been some fairly recent findings about some pretty serious side effects, like suicide and no libido.

I had a close friend who used it who went into a massive alcoholic tailspin, of course no way to know if the two were linked but the from your research you might find reason to not use it.

I brought my mouth in with me, the orange hair is a new thing.

I dunno. I'd like to see the control group as both depression and no libido can be a direct result of hairloss.

I stand corrected, I mixed up Rogaine with Propecia. And my friend was taking Propecia.

u can buy rogaine from mustafa centre or watson/guardian but its costs whooping s$95 and it will last only for one month as it is only 60g. better buy it from ebay where it will cost only s$35 including shipping.
in one of the online classifields, not sure if its gumtree.com.sg or craiglist, I found one guy near woodlands mrt selling it for the same s$35 and purchased one can from him. if u want I can pass his ph num to u. and ya its the foam version.
