The contribution of medical science through years of research for the treatment of hair loss is considered beneficial to many people suffering from this condition. The once inevitable male pattern baldness can now be minimized and prevented by the introduction of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) inhibitors and hair transplants, which give baldness and about-to-be-bald men a chance to restore the original thickness of their hair.

Considering the countless hair loss treatments advertised in TV commercials, radio endorsements, and different magazines and publications, each one declaring to yield better results once the product has been used as treatment for hair loss in men. Having said so, it is still a sad fact that most of these “so-called” anti-hair loss products are a fraud and are not effective at all.

An effective medication and treatment should be approved by the Food and Drug Authority (FDA) in order to be considered reliable, safe and effective. Buying fraud products would only end up making you disappointed, wasting time, money, and may tend to make your current condition worse.

A successful prevention of hair loss starts by going through the necessary measures to hinder its development. By the time hair loss starts to occur, it is vital to apply the treatment using a product that is really effective for men.

The following products are commonly used by a lot of men in treating male pattern baldness. The first two have been approved by the FDA, which have varied degrees of effectiveness. Meanwhile, the other two are some of the popular choices of treatment preferred by most men:

• Finasteride (Proscar, Propecia) – the generic equivalent of the brand names Propecia and Proscar. Originally made by Merck, a pharmaceutical company, to treat prostate gland enlargement, Finasteride has been later discovered to be effective also in treating male pattern hair loss due to its hair growth side effect. Historically, it is the very first drug to effectively treat this condition based on the number of men who have tried it.

• Minoxidil – another approved medication by the FDA used to treat male pattern baldness. Slightly resembling Finasteride, it is originally made to treat high blood pressure, which later detected the side effect of growing hairs. Unlike Finasteride, Minoxidil has only a marginal effect in battling hair loss, thus, making it a second choice among the hair loss experts.

• Hair Supplements – these medications have ingredients derived from natural inhibitors like Saw Palmetto, Lavender Oil, Nettle and Bay root, essential nutrients and many more to mention.

• Hair Regrowth Laser Solutions – a mild, non-chemical laser-based modern treatment for hair balding, which functions by improving the blood circulation in the scalp. In this way, hair follicles can effectively encourage hair regrowth.
