Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • I am need of few important details regarding your hair fall.
  • What is your age? Do you have any dandruff?
  • If you are young and having hair loss without any dandruff then the prescribed treatment is very correct for you.
  • Minoxidil is a vasodilator which increases blood supply to the hair roots and helps in hair growth whereas Finax is Finasteride.
  • These medications will show effect when using for 1 to 2 months, provided that you must use it compliantly without missing any doses. These are very effective medications.
  • If you have dandruff then please get treated your dandruff which is most commonly by fungal infection of scalp.
  • For that you have to use Ketoconazole shampoo for scalp thrice weekly for three weeks and further treatment depends upon the progress of hair fall.
