Hair loss or alopecia, can be such a huge blow to self-confidence. It can be caused by hormones, inherited, illness, stress, or dietary issues. Some people manage it cosmetically but your local pharmacy has a wide array of treatments that can address your problem.
This is a prescription medicine for enlarged prostate. It blocks the enzyme, 5-alpha reductase, from converting testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT causes hair follicles to shrink. Using it can slow down hair loss, or in early stages, regrow hair.
This drug has a similar action to finasteride but it does so by blocking both enzymes that make DHT. It is given to those who don’t respond to finasteride.
This is a topical scalp treatment applied twice daily. It works better on people who have recent or mild bouts of alopecia. However, it might take a year to see results.
If hair loss bothers you that much, visit your health professional to get to the root cause. Only then will they determine which type of treatment is right for you.
