With so many hair loss products on the market today claiming to be able to cure male hair loss it's no wonder men get confused trying to figure out which ones are real. The truth is most of the hair loss products out there are scams and do nothing in the way of stopping hair loss or growing hair that has been lost. There are only two products on the market that have been proven effective in the battle against male hair loss.
Minoxidil, better known as Rogaine, was the first product on the market that showed any promise for men fighting their hair loss. Rogaine is a topical solution that is applied to the affected area twice a day. While it does not work for everyone, this hair loss product for men does help slow the loss of hair and re-grow some hair. It should be noted that the results can sometimes be disappointing but for those who have tried other methods and failed, Rogaine is an affordable product that will have some effect on your hair loss.
For those really serious about stopping their hair loss the most recommended medication is Finasteride, also known as Propecia. This hair loss product for men can lower DHT, responsible for hair loss, by as much as 60% with a 1 mg per day dosage. Eight-five percent of men who use this drug have stopped the progression of their hair loss and 65% of those men have experienced substantial hair growth.
