I have fine hair but its been getting finer. My doctor suggested perhaps trying Minoxidil Foam 5%, I tried the liquid in the past but hated how much it made my fine hair look oily and wet.

I hear the foam works much better but some of the complaints I see is many find the smell of the foam to be pretty bad.

So here is my question I see you can put it on twice a day, once in the morning and once at night... if the smell is as bad as they say i probably just put it on once at night.... u think putting it on once would at least give me some improvements... or the two times a day a solid thing.

To go through the shedding and regrowing phase quicker, use it twice a day.

You can always after 2-3 months do what I do and only use it once a day.

I got all my growth at 2 months. most people do. I used minox 2-3 times a day. Now I only do once and have been for a looong time.

The foam itself will make your hair appear thicker, even when washed out.

The smell isn't that bad at all. But it does smell like something my mother would use lol. It's not that bad.

Just make sure you use finasteride as well otherwise your hair will continue to get worse.
