Male hair loss: A guide to Minoxidil

Minoxidil is a lotion that is prescribed as a treatment for hair loss in males. Also called Male Pattern Baldness or Androgenetic Alopecia.

Minoxidil is one of the two treatments approved by NHS England for treating male hair loss. The other is finasteride.

Minoxidil-based products can be applied in the form of a liquid or foam on the scalp. They function by increasing blood flow to hair follicles and stimulating hair growth. Minoxidil products are sold without a prescription , and come in foam or liquid form that contain either 5 or 2% concentration.

It’s important to know that “minoxidil” does not stop the loss of hair. Its primary purpose is to increase hair growth and thickness. If you want to stop losing hair should rather opt for Finasteride which is a prescription drug which stops the loss of hair completely in over 80 percent of men.

The two medications Minoxidil and Finasteride are available online through MENSCRIPT the online health clinic designed for males. They provide online consultations as well as individual treatment plans for men throughout both the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.
