9. Prescription Pills
Finasteride is a prescription pill that works by blocking the enzyme that converts dihydrotestosterone or DHT from testosterone, which has been linked to male pattern baldness. Dihydrotestosterone may cause premature hair loss in men who have inherited the male baldness gene by shrinking hair follicles until new hair can no longer grow. Up to ninety percent of men who take finasteride will slow down hair loss and may even grow back some lost hair. Using finasteride and minoxidil together may provide the best results. Sticking to the treatment plan is vital as they sometimes take several months to work.
