First and foremost before anyone undertakes a hairtransplant it is worth considering the avaliable medications for hair loss.
1. PROPECIA (FINASTERIDE OR PROSCAR)
2. MINOXIDIL (REGAINE )
The above are clinically proven to stop or slow down hair loss and are both FDA approved to do so. Like most medications they do have side effects in some people and i encourage anyone to discuss these with their doctor before taking them. For most people though these are usually minor and dont last long your gp will discuss the correct dosage with you for propecia and should explain how to apply minoxidil.
According to my gp and many of the websites iíve frequented 1mg per day is the correct dosage for propecia. It comes in 1mg tablets which is great but the other two- finesteride and proscar come in 5mg tablets and will require you to break them up into 5 pieces and take 1 every day. Minoxidil which you can apply directly to the scalp is clinically proven too and many hairloss sufferers find it fantastic but i personally find it very messy so i dont use it.
As well as the above medications there are other useful things that lots of hairloss sufferers use which include
1. Nizoral shampoo this is usefull for keeping the scalp healthy and free from dandruff and a lot of hairloss sufferers swear by it including myself
2. MSN is a natural supplement which promotes healthy hair growth and is said to speed up hair growth prior to a hairtransplant you can buy this from holland and barrets or most good healthfood stores the favoured dose is 3000mg per day
BEWARE the hair tranplant industry is brutal and as a victim of a very poor procedure i must stress that before anyone undergoes any kind of hair restoration procedure that they do their homework.
