    That is how they used to sell it : with both the spray and the dropper.
    For some reason they dropped the spray version but I kept mine and that is how I still do it.

    IMHO the spray gets a lot of minox in a larger area. The neg is you use more of it, but it's so cheap now I don't care. I spray a little in the front and more in the back as that is where i need it the most. It's faster to apply that way too.

    OP, great results! I've seen a lot of people with positive results using only minoxidil, I just wish I was one of them.

    I'm curious to see how long the new hairs continue to grow out. Mine would terminate at about a half inch then fall out and one of my coworkers can only gro them out about an inch.

    Chrisis - I'm envious! And pleased for you also. I tried Minox foam for around 15 months on my hairline and regrew sweet f*ck all.

    Keep at it, I call you a responder mate in this instance.

    Thanks for the feedback, and yeah I'll keep it up and report my progress.

    I won't be using viagra, by the way. Viagra is for erectile dysfunction, which I don't have. Thanks anyway.

    Awesome Chris. You must be very happy with the results.

    I know you are against taking Fin again - have you considered Saw Palmetto?

    Hi Chrisis, good results for 6 months. I too am thinking of using Rogaine 5%. Can you answer a few questions for me

    How long before the initial shed started and how bad was it? How many hairs would you loose because of it?

    How long before the initial shed stopped?

    Would you recommend using the liquid or the foam?

    Did it cause or stop any itching you may have had? Any other sides such as damaged to the skin, dizziness, headaches or dark circles under the eyes?

    Thanks MrBlonde!

    The shed started within a few months and was really bad. I started frantically researching my options and was obsessed with this forum and researching. I've scaled down somewhat, but still want a hair transplant.

    I started noticing improvement within 4-5 months. The hairs that fell out seemed to regrow and I think I gained territory. Never thought that would happen, but looking at these pics it's quite clear. I was actually a bit shocked seeing this post and how bad it was, even as recently as April.

    I used both liquid and foam. Foam is the best if you can afford it; it's much easier to apply.

    I had a bit of itchiness with the liquid, but haven't noticed it with the foam. I was using Nizoral for awhile also, so maybe that had an effect.

    Hope this helps. Uploading some new pics.

    New update showing minoxidil results with a more recent pic. I have dyed my hair darker in the recent photo and noticed it helps add depth and volume to my hair, so can recommend this for anyone in a similar position.
