Internal and External Solutions to Thinning Hair

Hair loss products range from topical solutions to nutritional supplements and prescription drugs.

This page covers the best of what's available today and some important facts about how they work.

In terms of internal treatments, the 2 drugs approved by the FDA are Finasteride and Minoxidil

Finasteride is found in Propecia and Proscar. The drug was originally developed to combat prostate problems, but researchers noted it's ability to halt hair loss and ran with it.

Finasteride can have sexual side effects and is transported through sperm, which can cause birth defects in babies.

Minoxidil is the active ingredient in Rogaine, which has proven to be about 25% effective in re-growing hair. Problem is, once you stop using the product, all new hair growth falls out as well as any hairs the Rogaine prevented from falling out during the course of use.

Holistic Hair Health

  • Scalp Massage - Regularly massaging the scalp stimulates blood circulation to the area which can help keep hair growing.

  • Gentle cleansing - Look for shampoos containing cocamidopropyl betain (coconut). It doesn't lather as well as other shampoos, but is a very gentle cleansing agent. As are shampoos made from olive oil or wheat germ oil.

  • Zinc combined with Vitamin b6 - Studies have shown that the combination of this particular vitamin and mineral inhibits the conversion of testosterone to DHT (the culprit responsible for androgenetic alopecia)

  • Broccoli - A chemical produced when the body is digesting broccoli has been found to inhibit DHT growth. Brussels sprouts and kale may also provide benefits.

  • MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) - Necessary for collagen synthesis. MSM is found naturally in foods only when eaten raw. It is destroyed with even the slightest heat or dehydration, and so is lacking from the average diet.
Supplements:

  • Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)
  • Vitamin B8 (Biotin)
