Can smoking mitigate the effects of Minoxdil?

I know I shouldn't be smoking in the first place and I am trying to quit. Only have a few cigs a week, much less compared to last year where I'd have about 5-8 per day.

In any case, can smoking mitigate the effects of Minoxidil since min is a vasodilator and tobacco/nicotine is a vasoconstrictor? I know there was a study in Taiwan that showed hair loss was more common in smokers, though this was only with men who had a pack a day which most smokers don't have. Also was told by a hair clinic doctor that smoking has no effect on hair loss.
