Is this possible, given that you seem to only need a tiny amount? I'd like to add it to my minoxidil liquid for simplicity.

I mix them on the scalp well with estrogen in my case but you could use minoxidil as a carrier. Estrogel works better on the face. You don't need much of that stuff but I have had good facial results. Because it is similar to oral minoxidil I don't know if the retin a is helping or not but a couple of times a week I put it on my hairline, well my crown filled in all the but any thin spots. Adaptagel spreads more easily but I guess it is weaker. It's over the counter, though.
Your crown filled up due retinol? My crown is pain and just doesn't seem to respond

Thanks. Looks like you are using a pre-mixed gel. What I've read thus far suggests you only need a tiny amount % wise, and too much has the opposite effect, which may make adding powder to minoxidil tricky. Just wondered if anyone has tried it.
