Tinfal Solution


Overview

Introduction of Tinfal Solution

Tinfal Solution is a medicine used in the treatment of male pattern baldness. It is most effective in treating familial hair loss or thinning at the top of the scalp, not in front. This medicine helps to stimulate hair growth by increasing the blood circulation to the hair follicles. However, the amount of hair growth is different for each person. During the first 2 weeks of application, your hair fall may increase temporarily. This is normal and is a sign that Minoxidil is working. This medicine should strictly be taken according to the doctor’s advice.
