Just started using kirkland 5% minoxidil. I've tried to find a answer/routine for this, but I haven't found any solutions. Two main questions:
1) I have dark blond, thin hair. When I apply the solution, it takes a long time to dry (2+) hours. Whiles it's drying it looks very greasy. I want to apply the solution before going to work, but I don't want to look like I don't shower. I've read that blow-drying isn't recommended. Is there any way to make it dry quicker?
2) I will let the solution dry before going to bed, but can even dry minoxidil get onto my pillow and then rub off onto skin and cause growth? Or, similarly, if I rub my hands through my dried hair, will the minoxidil rub off and get onto whatever I touch? Is minoxidil ineffective once dry?
Having to avoid any contact with my head for 8hrs a day seems... prohibitive.
