We’re glad you’re taking the time to do some research before you buy and start using any hair loss products.  The road to a full head of hair is littered with so many bottles and boxes of products that didn't work. So many people have lost hundreds and even thousands of dollars buying products that are either outright scams or that greatly exaggerate their benefits.  Here’s a short description of some of the hair loss treatments available to help you make an informed buying decision. Medications Hair loss medications work to promote hair re-growth.  For men, these treatments might generally include a DHT blocker (as in Rogaine for Men).  For women - who don't have the male hormone DHT - there are different formulations of hair loss medication.  Women will find that many doctors will want to make sure that androgenetic alopecia is the case before prescribing medication.  And for both men and women making the first attempt at treatment, doctors will more often rather prescribe a topical treatment rather than one taken internally.

Are Men or Women Prone to Hair Loss Causes?


The average amount of hair each of us have on our heads is 100,000 hairs. We lose approximately 100 strands of hair every day. The hair loss we have is replaced with new hair growth with the same density. As we age our hair follicles change too. The hair follicles become smaller and the hair they produce become more thin and smaller. This leads the to what is known as patterned hair loss in many of us. Both genders are affected by this and while the pattern of hair loss may differ for men and women, baldness is very common in men, and is usually genetic. The hair loss generally follows a pattern of recession at the temples and baldness on top of the head. Hair loss for women happens with a different pattern. It involves more of a thinning of hair throughout the entire scalp area. True baldness only occurs in about 5% of women.
