I've been using minoxidil once a day because I don't see why it cannot be effective. There has been proof that once a day is effective from users on this forum site.
However, the shed. I'm a patient person, but I've been using minox once a night for what must be 4 weeks now and I am STILL shedding considerably, I'm losing so much that I have to wipe the hair off my hands in the shower so that I can continue to wash my hair. My bed gets covered in hairs, I feel that my thinner areas where applying have got even thinner, and the shedding just seems relentless. I'm bored I'm sick of the shedding, the stop of the shed would be enough for me to see a progress, but I'm starting to feel now that the longer I use minox, the better I would have been without it over that time period.
Should I stick it out, or dump it? I lead a busy life, and while I usually intend to use s5 cream with it, I dont always have the time or remember to, its a pain enough to apply once a day, twice a day I'd hate, and once a day already makes my hair as greasy as a used pizza box.
I was expecting a longer shed with once a day, but it's been 4 weeks. It's becoming tedious.
I wont resort to fin. It's not something that apeals to me. I'm after maintenance, not growth, watching my hair rush down the plug hole, litter the bathroom and my bed is not something that is reassuring me of the treatment.
