Question: Hello Doctor,

Can i get the difference between hair4u lotion and trilast hair serum
My dermatologist prescribed me to use trilast just to avoid extreme dermatitis and flaking of scalpe with hair4u lotion.
My question would be if I start using trilast will it continue the effect of hair4u lotion which am using since 3 months or will it be like completely new session starting from 0 and should wait for atleast 6 months to see its effect.

Brief Answer:
Use both

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.
Trilast is a supportive medication while hair 4 u is minoxidil which is your main medication.
You can use both these together.
The effect of hair 4 u will continue, it's not starting from 0 again.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Keep using medication

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the follow up.
1. Trilast is a hair growth serum whereas hair 4 u increases the blood supply to hair.
2. First apply hair 4 u and after a gap of 1 hour apply trilast. This will help in better penetration of trilast.
3. You can use sebowash shampoo for scalp dermatitis.
4. Hair 4 u is best medication available for hair fall.
Have patience and keep applying the medication. You will get response in another 2 months.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
