Hi, I'm new to the forum and so glad to find it. My derm recommended I go on Rogaine 5% morning and evening in addition to taking ferritin. I just started the Rogaine two days ago and am sure I must be doing something totally wrong. I am using the solution but have just ordered the foam in hopes it will be easier for me. I have diffuse hair loss, not patches or blotchy. Even though I part my hair down the middle and then crossways several times and use the dropper, I am using SO much of it. Also, my hair is gloppy and shiny with the stuff. I had to skip work yesterday because my hair looked so awful. I could't even dry it with a blow dryer. My question is, can I apply it right after washing and towel drying my hair and then blow dry my hair? There is no way I can avoid getting it in my hair near my roots and because I need to cover such a large area, my hair for at least an inch from my roots is gloppy and stiff and shiny for several hours. Please Help! Thanks so much!
