Tricosilk Solution is a combination of two hair growth promoters: Aminexil and MINOXIDIL TOPICAL. Aminexil suppresses an enzyme which causes buildup of a protein (collagen) around the hair follicles, leading to hair loss. MINOXIDIL TOPICAL is a vasodilator, meaning it widens the blood vessels and provides better blood flow to the hair follicles. This prevents hair loss and stimulates re-growth resulting in longer, thicker and increased numbers of hair.
