Hi guys, im on liquid Minoxidil %2.

My question is, i had shower every morning, i dry my hair with towel however, it takes 1 hour or more to dry my hair fully.

Sometimes i dont have that time, so can i use Minox to a bit wet scalp?

Someone says he read that a wet scalp helps absorption by 10 times.

i will have a shower, then dry my hairs with towel then wait for 10-15 mins then Minoxidil application?

Can i do it?

Thanks in advance.

You're not supposed to apply min to a wet scalp. I think it would more dilute the min in the solution than increase absorption. Why does it take you 1 hour to dry your hair? Are you a girl? If so I guess I would just quickly dry the areas where i'm applying it by rubbing softly with a towel, but if you apply it all over then idk I guess all you could do is apply it much later after you take your shower.

Applying Minoxidil to a damp, towel dry, scalp will increase absorption and make it more effective!

if i remember correctly, i read that wet scalp increase the absorption on DS Lab's website.

Many claims they have better results with a bit wet scalp. so why not?
