I think your friend gave you good advice. I'm not sure it won't work, but a dermatologist / ht doc told me it's much more effective a few minutes after your morning shower for the reason you mentioned.


But, he said, take it whenever you can but that's the best.

Hi mrportsy


I've been involved in the hair restoration business for many years now, my understanding of minoxidil, direct from the suppliers is that it MUST go on dry hair/dry scalp to allow for maximum absorption of the minox..


I agree tho that after a hot/warm shower your pores will be open. In oz we actually have a device that delivers minox to the scalp whilst little tiny pins pierce the skin on a roller system, sounds gruesome but, really no pain is involved, ha what will they think of next..hmm..
