Best Hair Loss Treatment for Men

Best Hair Loss Treatment for Men

1 of 4. This is the average number of men who start losing their hair due to male pattern baldness before the age of 30.

You are not alone, brother; It’s nothing out of the ordinary. As a matter of fact, it is quite common. Welcome to our club.

Hair loss is a different experience for each individual, and if you don’t mind hair loss, that’s okay. It’s not always worth emphasising this.

Do you have a defined jawline, a strong forehead ridge, a nice head shape, and can grow a decent amount of facial hair? In this case, hair loss may not be a big problem in your case. You won’t lose many points in the looks department

But while this is true for some men, let’s not forget the other side of the coin: men who just don’t look very attractive when they go bald. If you consider yourself part of this group, you may want to consider some type of treatment. Especially if you are younger.

So let’s pretend you take action and seek treatment for hair loss. Do a search on Google or Amazon. What did you find?

Spoiler alert: an ocean of snake oil. Every “natural” way imaginable to treat hair loss. Ways that are only effective to empty your wallet.

You will probably fall victim to fraudulent schemes perpetrated by unsuspecting companies when you first begin your search for methods to reverse hair loss.

To find products that really work, you need to dig deeper. It will take you a while to distinguish between what works and what is bullshit.

That’s why I created this guide. I want to help guide you in the right direction. There are many new treatments and possibly even cures on the horizon, but for now, stick to what’s proven to work. After all, the best way to treat hair loss is to start controlling it from the beginning. It is much easier to maintain the remaining hair compared to growing it. Worst case: You will slow down to a degree where it may take several years to show more recession.

I’ll start with what I and countless other men use to manage their hair loss, as well as talk about alternative or complementary options, hair loss transplants, and other procedures (credit to Dr. Alan Bauman of Bauman Medical), as well as future treatments for hair loss further down.

So without further ado, let’s get to the hair loss treatments for men that actually work.

Years have passed and the “big three” still reign supreme. If you start treating your hair loss early on, there’s a good chance your hairline will remain intact.


Oh yes. Propecia. The infamous male organ destroyer. If you read the hair loss forums on the internet, you can practically hear the screams of the few who are supposedly affected.

I’m not a doctor, and while I definitely recommend that you get someone’s opinion before proceeding, there is a possibility that some of these claims may be a bit exaggerated.

Side effects (such as loss of libido and erectile dysfunction) only affect a tiny percentage of patients. And most of the time, they’re just psychological. The chance of you experiencing real side effects is actually very low.

I’m just presenting my personal experience and overall impression of the medicine after reading a tonne of user reviews online and listening to dozens of real-life testimonials.

If you’ve tried the drug and experienced real side effects, I’m sorry to hear that. You are the 1%.

If you think you might have side effects, I suggest you try NoFap. Don’t masturbate, ejaculate, have sex, or watch pornography for at least a week. One week. Many of you will feel foolish for thinking that you may have had side effects.

If the problem persists, consult your doctor. (You may also be interested in how to alleviate these side effects.)

One more thing: be extra careful if you plan to buy finasteride online. Make sure it is a reputable site. One I would recommend is a baldness doctor.

So, what exactly is finasteride?

Finasteride is an inhibitor of type II 5α-reductase, an enzyme that converts testosterone into DHT (dihydrotestosterone).

If hair follicles are sensitive to DHT, they begin to shrink, and each time they fall out, they become thinner and thinner, until they are so small that they are practically invisible. This is how male pattern baldness works.

Propecia can suppress up to 70% of DHT and can do the following: slow, stop, or even reverse hair loss in some cases. Here, you can find several before and after photos.

How do I get it?

You can get it from your doctor, a dermatologist, or online. Be cautious if you plan to buy it online. It’s easy to get scammed, have your identity stolen, or get a fake product from dodgy pharmaceutical websites.

I recommend getting a prescription from your doctor or an online clinic with a trained and board-certified doctor.

How do I take it?

One 1 mg tablet per day is the most common way. Some use it every other day or follow a Monday, Wednesday, and Friday schedule. Some say it has the same effect.

If you want to save money, get a prescription for Proscar (5 mg finasteride) and cut it into four pieces. It will be easier on your wallet.

When can I see the results?

Some users experience growth again within three months, but this can take up to a year. Consider slowing or stopping hair loss as well. After all, that’s what Propecia does best, stopping or slowing hair loss. It’s not growing back.


The second member of the “big three” and another extremely effective FDA-approved hair loss treatment is minoxidil. Minoxidil was originally an oral medication for high blood pressure. But after a while, patients began to report hair growth—all over their bodies. And not long after, the topical minoxidil solution for treating hair loss was born.

Minoxidil stimulates hair follicles to grow wherever you apply it. It widens blood vessels, allowing more oxygen, nutrients and blood to reach the follicle. Note, however, that it does nothing to stop DHT from shrinking hair follicles.

OK, when can I start seeing results?

Results should start to appear anywhere between 2 to 6 months.

How do I use this?

Apply 1 ml of minoxidil liquid (or 1 foam sponge if you are using the foam version) to the entire top of your scalp twice a day (with at least an 8-hour window in between). It only takes a few minutes to apply (even less with the foam version). It’s faster than brushing your teeth.

Some only use it once a day, as minoxidil has a half-life of 22 hours. However, Pfizer (the maker of Rogaine) warns that it may be less effective this way.

Where do I get this?

Anywhere. It is a medicine that is available without a prescription. You can check it out on Amazon at the links below.

Liquid or foam minoxidil?

Both are equally effective. The topical solution is cheaper, but the foam is easier and quicker to apply.

The box says it only works on the back of the scalp (vertex). Will it also work at the front (temples)?

You bet. But the test was only carried out on the apex, which is why it can only be advertised to work on its crown.

What are some brands of minoxidil?

There are many brands of minoxidil: Rogaine (known as Regaine in Europe), Lipogaine, Kirkland Minoxidil, Regenepure, Foligain, etc.
