Doctor, you mentioned in one of your recent posts that you supply one bottle of Progaine Shampoo to your patients after the surgery. I use Progaine a lot but can only find the Progaine Volumizing Shampoo available. The other Progaine products do not seem to be available at this time over the internet or in stores. Do you know why only one Progaine product is available at this time? When would the other products under the brand name be available again? If you could provide any information, it would be appreciated very much!
Progaine is just a volumizing shampoo like any other volumizing shampoo. It does not grow hair. There were other formulations, but I believe they’ve been discontinued. I just did a quick search online and you’re right –only the volumizing shampoo seems to still be for sale.
But… um… I must’ve had a temporary memory lapse when I said that Progaine was what I give to patients after their hair transplant surgery. I used to provide Progaine, but for years now I’ve provided GraftCyte shampoo (which contains copper peptide to promote better healing). You can find more info about that here. Sorry for the confusion!
