    I am using 5% rogaine every other day right now at night but wonder if i should be using it in the morning? If i apply it at night (which i actually prefer) when i sleep is it being rubbed off? or would it not matter as it would have been absorbed already by the time i go to sleep? Sorry i hope my question makes sense.
    Thanks

    As long as the minoxidil is dry by the time you are going to bed, it should not matter. I would put it on a couple of hours before bedtime so it is dry by the time you go to sleep.

    Hi Nitu, if you're applying it at night, do you then wash your hair in the morning?

    I second the above advice to aim for a few hours before bedtime. IIRC that's what the box recommends. ;)

    I am applying every morning currently - sometimes I go for a swim in the evening and wash my hair afterwards, and then do next application in the morning again. Hoping that it doesn't make too much of a difference having one or two nights with no minoxidil on my hair. I thought of applying in the evening, but was a bit worried about then going to bed and, as you say, it rubbing off, but also getting it on my pillow and it rubbing off onto my face etc. where I don't want hair!
