    Hi everyone,

    For everyone that uses rogain/kirkland foam: is it possible to take of the lid and access the fluid?

    So I want to try minoxidil. Here is the thing:

    - My skin does not like PG
    - I don't want to walk around with a greasy head for hours.
    - I still have long, relatively thick hair.

    This situation makes it very hard for me to decide what minoxidil would be best for me.

    I came across this video from a fellow HairLossTalk.com user: who uses Folligain, which I find too expensive. In sum, he turns of the lid, takes a dropper and puts the fluid (that is is supposed to come out as a foam) on his scalp like you would if it would be the liquid form. This way you have the pros of a liquid (reaches the scalp better, does not get stuck in hair as much without the con of having a long drying time.

    Anyone:)?

    Probably not, those cans are compressed. Some other options:
    - Apply the foam very slowly so it kind of "drips" out on to the scalp and doesn't get in the hair as much. Soak up the extra stuff from your hair with a paper towel.
    - Buy Minoxidil powder from a supplier like X'ian Lyphar and mix your own. I don't tolerate PG well either, but K&B solution works perfectly, and everything so far has dissolved well in it.
