Default Kirkland Minoxidil

I got some of this today and I hate that it drips every where.

This may sound like a silly question but would using a hair dryer to dry it quicker make it less effective?

I wouldn't say that it's going to make it less effective seeing as how hair drying just increase the rate of evaporation. Just use the cool setting from your blow dryer and i think you should be fine...

PS: Kirkland came out with foam version minoxidil as well recently.

Yes, Rogaine Foam contains 5% minoxidil as does the new generic version.

I know Spex has information on the Rogaine foam version on his free report on his site and if I remember correctly, he mentions it causes less to no irritation compared to the liquid. I think the info might be in one of his ebook modules.

it's been 2 months since I started using kirkland minoxidil foam 5%,no irritation or other skin issues at all.
but major increase in shedding, which is said to be normal in first few months of using any minoxidil product.
dries really fast,is not greasy and does not stick the hairs like liquid versions,and actually gives some additional volume to hair making styling easy and help to hide thinning areas.based on what I read it's as good as rogain/regain brand just much more affordable.
