Hair treatments

Postby Lara J C on Thu Aug 16, 2018 11:23 am

Hi. I use Nanogen shampoo that contains 'growth factors', which seems to help my hair loss. I also have a bottle of Alpecin Caffeine Liquid for massaging daily into the scalp. I've not tried this yet; do you think it's worth trying in conjunction with the shampoo?

thank you. There is no evidence that Alpecin works in patients (although it improves hair growth in tissue culture in laboratory). But it is safe to try it if you want to.

I hope this is helpful.
