Other ways to treat hair loss
No treatment for hair loss is 100 percent effective, but finasteride and minoxidil are the main treatments for male pattern baldness.
Minoxidil can also be used to treat female pattern baldness, advises the NHS, adding women shouldn’t use finasteride.
The health body also adds: “These treatments don’t work for everyone, only work for as long as they’re used, aren’t available on the NHS, and can be expensive.”
Other hair loss treatments include steroid injections, immunotherapy, light therapy, tattooing, hair transplant and scalp reduction surgery.
