Hi Tim, obviously I'm not Justin but I can give you a little help I think. I use minox 4 times a day- 1 application at 7 am, 2nd application (with emu) at 5 pm, 3rd application (with emu) at 9:30 pm and 4th application (with emu) at 2-3 am. I believe the applications need to be spaced out as I'm pretty sure Justin does this also. The idea is to hit the scalp several times a day so we are getting a consistent new dose throughout a 24 hour period. I use only Kirkland, however, if you want to avoid the greasy aspect of Kirkland, apply the minox while the hair is still damp after a shower. Let it dry for a half hour to 45 minutes or as long as possible and then comb through it and your hair should be totally dry. At night I wear a hat because of course emu oil mixed with minox is sort of a mess, wearing a hat eliminates any headache from that. Good luck, I look forward to Justin's reply as well

» your success?
