Hair Loss Facts and Solutions

Preserving and Restoring Thinning Hair

Hair Loss remedies range from cosmetic to invasive, and throughout the ages men and women have subjected themselves to all manner of "treatments".

Fortunately, science has evolved and we're beginning to understand what's at the root of this hair loss business.

Hair Loss Medications

These pages focus, for the most part, on what you can do naturally to prevent and solve hair loss problems. But first, here's what I dug up on the most common drugs being used to combat thinning hair.

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.
