Treatments for Hair Loss
There are hundreds of treatments for hair loss. This website has researched numerous treatments and the ones listed here I consider to be the best of the best. All of the listed treatments have undergone successful clinical trials to help prove that they do what the maker says they should do. There are three products that are backed by FDA clinical trials, they are Propecia (Finasteride), Minoxidil, and HairMax Laser Comb. However, all of the products I test and recommend are well-researched products.
All of the treatments discussed on this website don’t work for everyone. But by medicine standards these treatments are highly successful, well over a 70% success rate for all of them. But since they don’t work for everyone, it means there are still some other causes of hair loss. That is another reason why it is important to go to your doctor for a checkup to make sure you don’t have something else going on that could be causing the hair loss.
As you learned in my hair loss story, you are able to be on multiple treatments at the same time. When not testing products, I usually use Propecia, 4hairlossMen, and the Darsonval Violet Ray. What you try is your decision. The only two treatments you shouldn’t do at the same time are Propecia and Avodart because both drugs essentially do the same thing.
If you have a treatment that is not listed here it doesn’t mean it doesn’t work. It just means we didn’t list it because it didn’t meet our listing criteria or we didn’t realize it existed. If you have successfully used a treatment that is not listed here please email us and we will research the treatment.
The treatments listed below that have a star next to them are available for sale on 4hairloss.org.
Mild to Moderate Hair Loss
Any male is able to get on Propecia and Minoxidil or any other treatment for that matter. But the question remains, does the amount of hair loss determine if a treatment will work? Drug companies give us clues from their actual clinical studies to that question. But the answer is yes; your stage of hair loss determines the best treatment for you.
Most drug studies used participants that had mild to moderate hair loss. Looking at the Norwood Hamilton classification system, most define mild to moderate hair loss as people that are in stages IIa to IV or maybe V. Hair loss beyond those stages doesn’t mean these drug treatments can’t work, but there has been no studies to confirm or deny that. But based on what we have seen many experts would agree that these drug treatments are only so effective.
The goals of treatments for mild to moderate hair loss are to stop any further hair loss to save what hair you have and to regrow hair in lost areas. These treatments are highly successful and worth your time.

Moderate to Severe Hair Loss
The goal of treatments for moderate to severe hair loss are to give those that already lost their hair a second chance at having a full head of hair once again. These treatments are also for those that had no luck with the prescription and non-prescription products. You don’t have to be completely bald to use these treatments. For example, you may have a thin head of hair and the prescription and non-prescription treatments didn’t help. If that is your situation you may be a great candidate for hair transplants to fill in those thin areas.
