How long after applying rogaine is it safe to shampoo and/or exercise? Also, has anyone heard about "kirkland" brand minoxidil? Costco carries it and for a six month supply it's like $15 bones. Seeing as how I go through a ton of these things a month, this could save me some clams...anyone heard if it's just as good as the rogaine brand?
Much appreciated...

Hi NG

I used Kirklands brand and it is as good as the brand name stuff.

As for exercising,you can exercise anytime with this stuff.Shampooing i use to shampoo my hair,let it dry then apply the minoxidil and go about my everyday business as usual.


The longer you leave it on the better chance it has of working,best thing is to apply it 1 hour before you go to bed,then wash it out in the morning.

It says in the instruction to leave it 4 hours before shampooing so id guess the same for excersise that causes you to perspire heavily.

Mine turned up today,i cant wait to smother this crap into my head.
