There are many hair loss products on the market, some more legitimate than others. The problem is, unless they contain Minoxidil or Finasteride, they will not grow new hair. They typically only thicken and volumize your hair to give you the illusion that there is new hair growth when there isn’t. The products and medications that do contain minoxidil or finasteride are successful in about 85% to 90% of the cases in terms of at least stopping your current hair loss and/or growing new hair from living follicles. Each person responds differently to hair loss medications and products based on a number of factors, including the cause of hair loss, degree of hair loss, age, lifestyle, and health. As such, these proven products may not specifically work for some people.
Minoxidil (a topical medication) and Finasteride (an oral medication) are the most popular hair loss medications/drugs and are the only ones that (1) are FDA approved and (2) have been proven to stop hair loss and/or grow new hair from living follicles. While they can be effective for most, they may not work for everyone. Most importantly, any results gained using them will be lost once you stop using them; therefore, continued and ongoing use is recommended.
