    Default Does something like this exist?

    A little container. I pour minoxidil into it. I then place it on my bald spot. I go to sleep. All night long the minoxidil in there is up against my baldspot, hopefully absorbing.

    Seems like I need a container with a stickie on it or something.

    Thanks.

    Back in the 1980s, I seem to remember some doctors or researchers smeared a minoxidil solution on people's heads before bedtime, then wrapped their heads in plastic wrap. This was before Rogaine was commercially available. I used to have my pharmacist crush loniten tablets and mix the powder with a liquid to make a topical, and I tried applying it and making a saran wrap turban, but soon gave up wrapping my head as too much trouble. I did continue to use the topical once a day, before bedtime, and the stuff did result in better hair growth--maybe a 20 or 24% improvement--just enough to make it harder to see through to my scalp--but the improvement only lasted a year or so before slowly reversing.

    Ive never heard of anything like this and am not sure how the container could be placed so flush against your scalp that it wouldn't leak out the sides... I also don't think there would necessarily be a medical benefit to this anyway.
