Minoxidil (brand name Rogaine), the only FDA-approved medication for female hair loss, is available over-the-counter in 2 and 5 percent formulas. (Only the lower dose is approved for women.) Massage it into your scalp twice a day; you should notice regrowth in six months. Results last only as long as you use the medicine. ($50 for a three-month supply)
Men’s Rogaine Extra Strength Solution is the liquid version of our top pick. It didn’t make our final cut because it includes propylene glycol, which causes irritation in roughly one-third of its users. With that said, Dr. Wolfeld finds that it can be even more effective in practical daily use. In his experience, “the solution can penetrate and get into your scalp a little bit better” than the foam — especially if you’re not taking the time and effort to apply the foam correctly. This seems crazy to us since the foam so quickly dissolved into a liquid in our tests, but if you’re worried, try a one-month supply of the liquid and make the switch to foam if you notice any irritation.
There isn’t anything special about Lipogaine other than it contains the right ingredients that specifically help target and treat scalp inflammation, a biotin deficiency, and help kill fungus, all of which are primary reasons for hair loss in adult men and women.
Many doctors don’t like to prescribe pills to fix skin problems, they prefer topical treatments. Many doctors will tell you to try the one and only FDA-approved treatment for female hair loss, which is Minoxidil. This drug was invented to treat high blood pressure, but causes extra hair growth as a side effect. Someone figured out that instead of ingesting it, applying it to skin can make hair grow.
An essential oil, rosemary has strong antiseptic properties that help treat flaky scalp, dandruff and infections—all of which contribute to hair loss. It is also a natural hair loss treatment that acts as a potent stimulant when applied directly. And, as discussed in the International Journal of Biotechnology, rosemary oil has superior antibacterial and antioxidant properties, both of which lead to noticeable hair regrowth.
Onion when mixed with honey too helps you get rid of baldness. Just mix enough honey with onion juice and rub your bald patches with the mix. If you don’t want to extract the juice of onion, you may also rub the bald patches with onions cut into half. After rubbing with onion, rub the bald potches with honey. Wash with water thereafter.
How does Minoxidil works ? – Minoxidil is a vasodilator. It enlarges blood vessels and works on the active hair follicles by increasing blood flow and, subsequently, nutrition to the weaker hair. Thus, Minoxidil only works on active hair follicles and not the dying or the dead ones. This preventive remedy prevents further hair fall and reduces the rate of ‘hair follicle miniaturization’ that causes the hair to weaken before dying of completely. The follicles enlarged by Minoxidil tend to remain in the growth phase for a longer period of time. Thus, Minoxidil hair loss cure acts as a “life support” for the dying hair.

Of course, the usual health advice applies. We aren’t medical professionals, and we can’t give you actual medical advice. But you know the drill: De-stress, eat well, sleep enough, and avoid ponytails, braids, and cornrows if you’re experiencing hair loss.
Thanks for your response and awesome article! Do you recommend sticking with minoxidil for a period of time (i.e. 6 months) before starting finasteride or do it all at once? I would be on finasteride now if I wasn’t nervous about the potential side effects so my plan was to wait to see if minoxidal does anything for me over the next 3 months or so (at that point I will have been on it ~ 6 months). My shedding has certainly reduced so hopefully it is starting to work. I’m in the very early stages of hair loss. No one would notice (except me and my wife). Just looks my hair part on the top of my head even though it really is thinning.
“It wasn’t: ‘You’re going to get a full head of hair,’” said Jon Centella, 35, of Apollo Beach, Fla., who started seeing peach fuzz after four months. “It was: ‘We’ll give you 30 percent,’ and that’s what made me comfortable enough to give it a shot.”
Long before the advent of chemical or surgical hair restoration – people around the world have been using natural remedies to nourish the scalp and keep hair thick and healthy. There are around two dozen common causes for hair loss and hair thinning including (but not limited to) stress, skin infection, medications, age, heredity, and sudden change in diet. Whatever your case may be, the remedies on this list when used regularly can help you to regrow, or thicken, your hair.
“There are three main causes of thinning hair we encounter in our clinics: breakage, sensitivity to normal levels of circulating hormones, and dietary deficiencies — often a combination of these are present.” Kingsley suggests using a treatment regime that combats each cause separately.

My dearest friend, I know all too well how it feels like to have hair loss. Embarrassments, frustrations and a huge dip in self-confidence, as well as hundreds of other bad things, hand in hand with baldness and hair loss.
Women’s Rogaine contains a 5% concentration of minoxidil. Minoxidil opens up blood vessels which seems to help hair follicle function. This is possibly the best treatment if you have genetic female pattern (or male pattern) hair loss.
On December 22, 1997 the FDA approved a 1mg dose of finasteride for the treatment of androgenic alopecia in men (male pattern baldness). Propecia is the first drug in history to effectively treat male pattern baldness in the vast majority of men who use it.
What about ‘hair building fibers’?Products like Toppik use statically charged keratin fibers that bind to existing hair shafts, which may make hair look thicker, but does nothing to prevent hair loss. You might want to consider using one of these products in addition to an actual hair loss treatment, but don’t count on it alone.
Other off-label products that show possibilities are Tagamet (an antacid treatment), azelaic acid (a rosacea and acne treatment) and some birth control pills. Experts say that these products require further study into their effectiveness, as well as any possible side effects.
Lipogaine uses proven 5% Minoxidil in its men’s blend (they also make Lipogaine for women) that, combined with other ingredients, makes for a powerful hair loss treatment with proven results.

Too much stress is bad for health and beauty, but did you know there’s a known connection between stress and hair loss, too? Constant stress can cause cortisol levels to spike, which can contribute to increased hair shedding. To relieve stress and its damaging effects on your hair, try meditation, regular exercise, keeping a regular sleep schedule, or any other activity that helps you decompress.
