Hello. Thank you for choosing Health care magic.
Tugain 5% solution is not going to improve your dandruff.
I suggest you start using triatop shampoo atleast twice a week (leave it on for 5-10mins). Avoid using hair oil. You should see an improvement after a month.

Hello ,
welcome to "Health Care Magic "
HOMOEOPATHIC treatment will not only help you to stop your dandruff and hair fall too. if you have an severe dandruff, then hair fall might increase due to it
any anti - dandruff shampoo can help you for couple of days but as dandruff is an infection you need to treat it internally then externally .

Imagine that you are thirsty but instead of drinking water you are taking bath with it. Is that going to satisfy your thirst that is internal? . It is the same case with the hair loss as well.
if you have an severe dandruff, then hair fall might increase due to it .
for this homoeopathic medicnes will surely treat the exact cause in your body , for more info you can write down to (
and if you start treatment at early stages of hairloss you can get good results
takecare. godbless!

Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,
Dear ,you have not mentioned about your gender,kindly do so.Your treatment depends upon whether you are male or female.In females the most common cause of hair loss is –iron deficiency, hormonal imbalance, thyroid problem, stress, lack of sleep, familial ,or use of chemical on scalp ,procedures like perming or straightening etc. Other rare causes are zn & copper def.In males,andogenetic alopecia is most common apart from the above rare causes. One has to find the exact cause of hair loss and treat. In females there are various patterns of hair loss,which can be judged clinically by a dermatologist.In females one should get a hormonal level checked along with an ultra sound if necessary to rule out PCOD.This usually seen in obese patient with irregular periods. Other simple test which we do are hair pull test and trichogram to diagnose which type of hair loss is there. Since you are using tugain which is nothing but minoxidil solution which help in case of hair loss.It does not treat dandruff at all.For dandruff you can use any ketoconazole 2% shampoo twice a wk .
In males for hair loss we also add finestride orally daily which works wonders in case of androgenetic alopecia. There are low level lasers also to control hair loss .I've been using the same for last two years with good result.They are FDA approved also.
Improve your diet with green leafy veg, fresh fruits, plenty of water, sprouts ,pulses, high protein diet, avoid items with high sugar content like sweets & chocolates, less of Chinese foods, less of pizza & burgers ,more of milk & ghee, dry fruits . Good sleep also has a important role to play . We also do hair transplantation for those needed.
Take care,
