I second everything that Crimsonshedemon says. I apply Rogaine (I finally found a generic that I can open without difficulty so I use that) every night. I'm really lazy about it and sloppy and I just squirt the foam on my fingers and smoosh it onto the thinning areas. Then I wash off my fingers. (Don't want hairy fingers LOL). It works fine.

Good luck - I hope you find something that works for you.

I love all the Curl Junkie products and use CJ CCCL as my main styler. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
