Medicines That can cure your Hair Loss!
Sadly it is not very uncommon to see a more and more receding hairline every day. There is an estimate that around 50 million men are affected by male pattern baldness, and nearly two-thirds of them experience early signs of baldness in their early 20s. If you have the typical M-shape pattern on your temples you might have a shiny future ahead. The best way to avoid this is to treat hair fall in its early stages. It is easier to repair your hair than to regrow them again.
You might have seen tons of infomercials and posters about random medicines which help you in combating hair loss but don’t be fooled by them! The herbal lotions, laser beams or caffeine shampoos have all been proven as a complete waste of money. So how would you treat your hair fall? There are some FDA approved medicines that slow down the process quite a bit. These can be consumed with permutations and combinations so as to acquire the desired results.
1) Minoxidil (Rogaine)
It was initially used to treat high blood pressure, but it was later found to have a side effect of excessive hair growth, well isn’t that just convenient for us? It has been approved by the FDA to be used to combat hair fall. It is recommended to apply the solution directly onto the scalp.
2) Finasteride (Propecia)
This pill is more effective than Rogaine and yields comparatively good results. This too is FDA approved however there are some side effects involved such as cold sweat, confusion, dizziness, swelling in the legs and arms, etc. It is recommended to be taken by men only with androgenetic hair loss.
It is as effective as Rogaine but is considerably safer.
4) Kirkland Minoxidil
It has the same results as Rogaine, however, Rogaine constitutes a higher quality of ingredients. On the other hand, Minoxidil is way cheaper and is thus a good budget option.
This prescription drug is helpful only to those who still have some of their hair left with a very low probability of side effects (low sex drive and impotence). Its main job is to repair the damaged hair rather than help in re-growing them. The results are very gradual but steady, so be patient with this one.
This is one of the best shampoos which helps in combating hair fall and is easily available commercially. It comes in two versions: 1% and the 2% (prescription) ketoconazole. However, this shampoo to be used with Minoxidil and Finasteride or you won’t see expected results.
If you don’t want to go the medicinal route there are other ways like a balanced diet, massages, regulated sleep cycles etc to control hair fall. However, these medicines or home remedies might or might not resolve the hair loss issue, but a hair transplant is a certified option with assured results.
