Answer
Hello Rafsan,

You should be shampooing every day or at least every other day with a good cleansing shampoo ( NOT a Conditioning shampoo).  Furthermore ensure that you are shampooing and rinsing twice each time AND using Hot water to do so.  Also note that a conditioner is most likely NOT required and do NOT use oils on your scalp after you shampoo.  If you absolutely must use oils for any reason, Please apply as little as possible and only to the ends of the hair.......AWAY from the scalp.  If the Rogaine is not helping I believe you should stop........it is expensive and is a drug that must continue to be used indefinitely and with possible side effects.

Good Luck.
