Hello Pankaj!

Trigaine is Minoxidil solution that comes in various strengths of 2, 5 &10% and is used as anti hair fall topical therapy. Usually 1ml twice daily application is suggested. I usually prescribe it for patients of androgenic alopecia along with Finasteride and multivitamin-mineral tablets.

Shampooing frequency while using minoxidil should be once daily. I suggest my patients to keep their hair short, wash daily with mild shampoo, use conditioner and let the hair dry. Once the hairs are dry apply 1ml minoxidil carefully on the scalp using the applicator in thinning area. Style as desired and go to work. In the evening/night apply 1 ml without wash/shampoo. If you want to use oil, apply it 2 hours AFTER minoxidil application. Repeat every day.

Hope you found this answer helpful. Feel free to ask more.

Hello Doctors, I am suffering from hair fall for a very long time now. I consulted a doctor and he suggested tugain 10% and it worked great for me. I left using it for some months and the hair fall started again. Now I am using it again but i havent seen any positive results. All i see is small hairs developing and falling off (eye lid hair sized). And my hair density has decreased too. Now the doctor advised me to use Trigaine. Can you please suggest what is the difference between the two.

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?
