Hair Loss Option: Other Hair Loss Treatments

Many commercial treatments and custom formulas are available for hair loss. These range from treatments marketed as “cosmetics” to off-label prescription medications. While some of these treatments do work for some people, there are many products available that seem to offer little benefit to anybody. The cosmetic treatments are best used as an addition to the approved products if you can afford them, or as a last results if the approved products do not work for you. Some of the prescription custom formulas may be very beneficial. Most contain 5% Minoxidil (or higher), the active ingredient in Rogaine Extra Strength, as well as other medications that help with hair loss. These do not undergo the same rigorous testing as approved medications, so caution should still be used.
