    BESIDES NIZORAL, are there any oils I can topically apply routinely to counteract this dandruff buildup..?

    Thanks

    I had minoxidil dandruff before but never have that problem anymore once I started washing my hair every morning and night.

    Don't use the basic rogaine or kirkland formula. Some solutions merged with azelaic acid won't give dandruff. I used to have dandruff with rogaine/kirkland minoxidil and I never experienced this problem again after switching to lipogaine/minoxidil max.

    I had this dandruff problem using minoxidil. I think it is not dandruff, actually it is just a flakey build up of the dried minoxidil. I use a small stiff brush on my scalp whilst shampoo my hair. no more problem : )

    That's easy.

    Use Minoxidil foam, twice a day. The glycerol is what usually gives dandruff.

    The foam was designed to prevent that.
