If you are experiencing hair loss, you might consider using shampoos, conditioners and hairsprays containing Tricomin to combat this problem. Unlike other hair-loss products, Tricomin is not formulated to inhibit the growth of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), according to, and is used as a natural alternative to other hair-loss products. However, there are rare side effects associated with Tricomin products, as well as questions regarding their efficacy.

How Tricomin Works

Tricomin's active ingredient is copper peptides. According to, copper peptides stimulate the regrowth of hair, skin and nails and is a safe ingredient, especially considering the small percentage of copper actually found in Tricomin products. Dr. Loren Pickart, owner of and inventor of the copper peptide formula that is the active ingredient used in Tricomin, has performed clinical studies in which improvements in hair growth and thickness resulted after using products containing copper peptides. Of course, Dr. Pickart's studies and claims should be viewed with regard to his proprietary interest in promoting these products.

Negative Side Effects of Tricomin

According to, there are no measurable side effects of Tricomin. In general, Tricomin shampoos, conditioners and sprays contain copper compounds that are well-tolerated by the human body, as copper is a necessary supplement similar to iron and zinc. That said, people with very sensitive skin could react adversely to copper peptides.

However, there are certain effects of specific Tricomin products that have appeared to decrease amounts of DHT. According to, some Tricomin spray products have a tendency to reduce DHT on the scalp even though this is not the intended effect.

Overuse Can Trigger Side Effects

According to, when copper peptides are used in normal quantities for skin treatment, side effects are rare. However, the website cautions that excessive use of copper peptides can have an opposite effect on skin and lead to an accelerated ageing process. Even though Tricomin is used for the hair, it is designed to stimulate the scalp (and therefore the skin on your head), so using too much Tricomin can be detrimental.

Positive Side Effects of Tricomin

Positive side effects of the copper peptides in Tricomin sometimes include a decreased greying of hair follicles, according to And women experiencing scalp disorders or chemical damage from hair products might also glean benefits from using Tricomin.

This active ingredient in Tricomin needs further clinical study and testing to be proven as effective in hair regrowth, but negative side effects in general are rare.

Tricomin Hairspray Side Effects

People suffering from hair loss can use Tricomin shampoo, conditioner and hairspray to help improve hair growth and stimulation, but, according to, the Follicle Therapy Spray is the most effective of the three. Positive side effects are more easily measured when this hairspray is used daily, as opposed to the shampoo and conditioner.

There are many brand names formulated with Procyte copper peptides, so if you do experience an adverse reaction to Tricomin, there are similar products you can switch to.
