I just turned 21 male in February, I was not really paying attention to my hair until just few weeks ago I noticed a big scalp showing in my crown area and hair is also thinning in that area. My dad is also bald but he started loosing hair when he was 30.
I am now using Regenepure Dr. I heard a good thing about this shampoo. Also should i start to use Rogaine Foam?
The only 2 medications that I recommend are the FDA approved hair loss treatments Propecia (finasteride) and Rogaine (minoxidil). If you’ve got early crown hair loss, Propecia is the better treatment… but you should speak to your doctor about this. Figure out what it is you’re seeing in the crown by having an examination with a doctor.
If what you’re seeing is early genetic hair loss, Propecia should halt the loss and possibly regrow the hair. If you’re not seeing genetic loss, this isn’t the medication for you. Minoxidil does work in the crown, but it doesn’t stop the loss and the hairs that regrow tend to be finer.
RegenePure DR is a shampoo with ketoconazole as an active ingredient. Some claim ketoconazole works well as a hair loss treatment, but it is a better antifungal and dandruff treatment. Ketoconazole shampoo is better known as Nizoral, and I’ve written about ketoconazole before here.
