It doesn't need to be applied twice a day.
Yea currently I use once a day and apply a generous dosage. Getting amazing results, not anything less than when I was applying 2x a day

I’d be careful about buying it on amazon, as it defaults to a third party seller and at least one buyer claims to have checked his product codes and confirmed he was getting counterfeit minoxidil. Best to just buy Kirkland directly from Costco’s website to be safe in my opinion

You're not bothering with the foam in the AM?

No, the 22 hour half life makes it unnecessary. I’m still getting new terminal hairs since dropping to 1x a day

Also, the less things I have to be bothered with in the morning just make it easier to get up and get moving. At night after I put the liquid in, I position my hair where I want it to be when it’s dry, and the slow drying of the liquid basically holds it in place so I barely have to style it in the morning. If I put minoxidil on in the morning that’d be like an extra 10 min of having to styling it and all that

I used Minoxidil for about a year with amazing results to my hair. My hair line grew back in the front and the hair on top became thick and shiny. LOVED it. First six months i didn't notice anything with my skin on my face. As time went on though I was looking more and more tired. Swear to God I woke up one morning and my eyes almost looked black.

Like I had not slept in weeks and huge wrinkles had really set in. it was very scary and I didn't find out till later that it could be the minoxidil. Now I KNOW it was in my case because after a year of not using it and taking care of my skin it almost went entirely away. I convinced my self I was crazy however and tried again a few years later. SAME FUCKING RESULT, but quicker this time. Before I had the chance to enjoy more hair on my head my eyes went dark and wrinkles deepened.

I've done this 3 times now over the course of the last 7 years with the same result every time. Super bums me out but I've decided I want my face more than my hair. I come from a large family of 7 and I'll never forget one reunion where I was the only one with dark circles under my eyes ( does not run in my family) and looked ten years older than my way older brothers. It was so hard to accept but that has been my experience. Also, We can share our personal insights and experiences without having to make everyone wrong who might have a contradictory experience.
