Minoxidil advises to use nomore than 1mL at a time, two times daily. However, if someone needs to use it in the front, mid scalp, vertex, and crown how are they supposed to get all that covered with just 1mL?
Previously I upped my dose to about 3-4mL instead 1mL, but that gave me a bloated face and I could taste minox in the back of my throat.
I counted the drops in a 1mL liquid minox and it is an average of 33-35 drops. Attached is a picture of an individual whom wishes to use minox but can only apply 1mL to the vertex/crown area. What is he supposed to do if he wants to use some at the front and mid scalp too? Why don’t these companies specify that 1 drop of minoxidil is enough to cover 1 square cm (for example)? How exactly does minox spread once it is absorbed by the scalp? How far to neighboring follicles does a drop spread?
The black dots represent 35 drops which is an average of 1mL.
