Your Ultimate Guide to Hair Loss || Treatments

If there is one topic that never gets “over-talked” about, it is hair loss. We can’t just get over this issue or “embrace” it. It is annoying, making us constantly on the lookout for new solutions. And because half of the solution is knowing the cause, it is super crucial to have a good understanding of what’s making your hair fall. Let’s take you on a journey of all the causes and the latest solutions you can add to your trying list.

Over The Counter

1 || Minoxidil


commonly recognized as Rogaine, stands out as the top-notch non-prescription remedy for hair loss. It has been shown to promote hair growth and slow down hair loss. Initially conceived as an oral medication, it later evolved into a topical solution for easy application to the hair.

While women’s formulations typically range from 3% to 5%, if you are looking to explore its benefits are advised to opt for the 5% concentration found in men’s formulas. While you may find on the bottle a caution that says “women should not use”, this is not true and you can use it.

To avoid hair growing on your face, make sure to apply only on your head then wash your hands really well. And wear a cap or bandana if you’re planning to sleep with it.

The downside of this treatment is that your hair will fall off once you stop it.

2 || Nizoral Shampoo


An easy one to add to your routine. This is an anti-fungal medication. It helps by decreasing any kind of inflammation on the scalp and eliminating fungus that causes dandruff which leads to hair loss. You will notice that your hair looks fuller and thicker because the shampoo increases the diameter of your hair. The over-the-counter formula comes at 1%.

3 || Rosemary oil


It has been an obsession on social media for a while now and it actually works! It improves blood circulation, blocks DHT, and is anti-inflammatory and has anti-oxidant properties. It has been proven that rosemary oil is as effective as Minoxidil! However, in order to see obvious results you need to use it twice a day for at least six months.


1 || Finasteride


Also known as Propecia… It is a prescription drug used for the treatment of male-pattern hair loss. It can be used for women, but unlike minoxidil, it is very risky and going to affect the development of your baby if you are pregnant, planning to get pregnant, or just gave birth. So unless you are 100% done with having babies or you are at your menopause phase you should AVOID using it completely.

It has many benefits including blocking DHT and normalizing the hair cycle so it is much healthier and stays in the growth phase for longer. People like it because of its effectiveness for the crown of the scalp and mid-scalp. However, it has many downsides such as affecting baby boys’ development and causing libido.

The good news is that finasteride is also available in topical formulas. So to avoid all its possible side effects, we recommend using it topically instead of orally.

2 || Spironolactone


Another prescribed solution taken orally to address hair loss, these medications were initially designed for hormonal acne. Interestingly, they’ve shown encouraging results for hair improvement too. However, given their impact on reducing androgen production, it’s advisable to steer clear of them if you’re attempting to get pregnant.


1 || Nutrafol


If you are on the lookout for a natural solution to promote hair growth, Nutrafol is the answer. It is a multivitamin that helps with hormonal imbalance, inflammation, oxidative stress, and nutritional deficiencies. In order to see results you need to take it for at least six months, and this might be considered a downside given its expensive price.

If you decide to take it, be careful with using other multivitamins because you don’t want to overdose on vitamin A or D.

2 || Prenatal


If you’re not planning to spend all your money on Nutrafol, Prenatal is a good alternative. Yes, it might not contain all the goodies in the previous one, but it has all the vitamins you need.

In Office Treatment

1 || PRP


You probably have heard of this, Platelet-rich plasma is produced from a person’s own blood and it has been gaining so much popularity lately for its benefits in treating hair loss. It can be applied topically through microneedling or injected into your scalp.

PRP is rich in growth factors thus it helps to prolong the hair growth phase of your hair cycle, plus it increases the thickness of your existing hair and stimulates sleepy hair follicles.

But it is important to know that PRP is not for everyone, so unless you are financially able to take the risk of trying, it is recommended to do three treatments one month apart, stop five to six months, and see whether or not your hair has responded.

2 || Exosome Therapy


One of the newest and most effective treatments for hair loss. It is basically a regenerative treatment that uses stem cell exosomes to stimulate hair follicles and encourage new hair growth. Similar to PRP, exosomes can be applied topically or injected.
