I am 19 years old female.I m a student.I have been suffering from hairfall from my 11th class.I have consulted a dermatologist .She suggested me Trigaine with minoxidil(2%).She said that,this solution should be applied 1ml twice a day and take a head bath twice a week.But I have read your answers here...These answers mean that Head Bath should be taken everyday with a mild shampoo.What is correct in this?I also have blood deficiency.So, how long is this solution to be used?

Hi ,

Thanks for writing in.

Minoxidil should be used for atleast 6-12 months.
Head wash is to be taken 2-3 times per week.
Apply it 1ml twice daily.
Use dandy shampoo for hair wash.
Hope this helps.
