Three Proven Products to Treat Hair Loss At Home

Hair loss can ruin our overall appearance and can lead to stress. There are so many products out there on the market claiming their products actually work. From shampoos to treatments and from topical solutions to oral in-take of vitamins, there are literally thousands of products which can hinder the decisions of choosing the right product. Although these products may help, it’s not proven since these claims are just made from the companies who produce these products. Therefore I’m going to list the products what are actually proven to treat genetic hair loss.

1. Finasteride (Propecia)

Finasteride is a common oral medication that needs a prescription from the doctor. Finasteride is a generic and commonly used medication for hair loss. This drug is also approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This medicine pauses the hairloss progress and try to keep the original hair as it is. You need a prescription from a doctor and this medicine is only for men.

How does finasteride work?

This medication works by decreasing the amount of a natural body hormone (DHT). Decreasing the amount of DHT leads to increased hair regrowth and slower hair loss. Hair growth on other parts of the body is not affected by finasteride.

How long does it take to work?

You might need to wait around 3~6 months to see the results. Finasteride will not fix it permanently but just stopping the progress. Thus, once you stop taking the medicine the process continues.

2. Minoxidil (Rogaine)

Minoxidil is a topical type of medication to help trigger the growth of a new hair. Minoxidil has to be applied directly to the hair scalp. It is being sold all over the country in Korea and you need no prescription to buy it. 

How does minoxidil work?

Minoxidil widens the blood vessels under the skin and increasing the blood flow to the hair.  It has the most effective result for androgenic alopecia. Minoxidil works also the best when it is combined with taking finasteride. Finasteride will stop the hairloss progress and Minoxidil will help to grow the tiny hairs.

How long does it take to work?

You need to use it twice per day on your scalp. You’ll notice the thickness of your hair after 3-4 months. Like finasteride, minoxidil only works for as long as you use it. Minoxidil is the same as finasteride. If you stop using it, the hair loss progress resumes.

3. LLLT laser comb and cap

Laser combs and caps can stimulate hair follicle growth with low-level, laser light.

How does it work?

The laser targets the hair follicles and stimulates the cells, which aids in hair growth.

How long does it take to work?

It takes about 4 months to see some noticeable difference. You should use it every day for about 20 minutes. 

These are proven ways to treat hair loss. However, the best way to treat hair loss is to visit a professional hair loss clinic like Maxwell Hair Clinic where your scalp can be examined. You can get more details along with consultation by contacting us via email or phone.
