For one, it is feared that should new hairs grow from hair cloning, these may not necessarily look like the rest of your hair. These may either be thicker or have a different color. The hairs may be lighter or darker than the old hairs.
In men, finasteride (originally marketed as Proscar) is approved for hair loss associated with androgens. In one study, 62% of women also taking oral contraceptives containing the synthetic progestin drospirenone reported improvement. So it may be effective for female hair loss in the setting of increased androgen. But studies are limited and it is harmful to the male fetus so should not be used by women thinking about becoming pregnant or who are pregnant.

I brought the for my boyfriend 3 mths ago. And all I can say is wow!!! When he first started using it progress was slow. He was losing his hairline and the crown was almost bald. But by the end of the of the first mth his hair was visibly thicker & growing and we’re in the 3rd mth and the results just keep getting better. Only thing is you do have to keep using it to keep the hair that regrows. At 40.00 for a 2mth supply I think its well worth it.
