If you are looking for over-the-counter remedies for hair loss, the main treatments are finasteride and minoxidil.
According to the NHS, minoxidil can also be used to treat female pattern baldness but women shouldn’t use finasteride.
Before taking these drugs, it is worth weighing up the drawbacks.
As the NHS explains, these treatments:
- Don’t work for everyone
- Only work for as long as they’re used
- Aren’t available on the NHS
- Can be expensive
