Hair Loss

The average adult has 90,000 to 150,000 hairs. Most grow about one inch every two months. Loss of anywhere from 50 to 100 hairs per day is normal. Hair loss beyond this rate may be due to:
Genetics and hormones. These are the most frequent cause of hair loss. This predisposition to balding is referred to as male pattern baldness, common baldness or androgenic alopecia.
Stress brought on by traumatic experience, nutritional deficiency or severe illness. Medication side effects.
Other medical conditions such as anemia, under-active thyroid or fungal infection of the scalp.
Improper hair care caused by harsh chemicals or dyes, too frequent shampooing or combing or vigorous toweling.

1. Prescription and OTC medication

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved two medications to treat male pattern baldness:
Minoxidil (Rogaine). Rogaine is available over the counter (OTC) as a liquid or foam. Apply it to the scalp twice a day to encourage hair growth and prevent hair loss.


Finasteride (Propecia, Proscar). Finasteride is a pill that you take daily. It’s only available with a prescription from your doctor.
For both minoxidil and finasteride, it may take up to a year to see results, and you’ll need to keep taking them to maintain the benefits.
