There are several different types of hair loss. Medically, hair loss is generally known as Alopecia. However, there can be different types of alopecia and different causes and symptoms of each type. The most common type of hair loss is male-pattern baldness, and it it this type of hair loss that is commonly treated with things like Regaine and Propecia.

Below, are listed some of the most common types of hair loss. At Simple Online Pharmacy, we can treat the most common type, which is male pattern baldness.

  • male- and female-pattern baldness 

Male-pattern baldness is the most common type of hair loss. It affects around half of all men by the time they turn 50 years of age. It can often start in the late twenties or early thirties, whilst most men have some degree of hair loss by their late thirties.

Male-pattern baldness will generally follow a pattern of a receding hairline, followed by thinning of the hair on the crown and temples. This can then leave a horseshoe shape around the back and sides of the head. This can sometimes progress to complete baldness.

Male-pattern baldness is linked to your genes, and so if their is baldness in the family, you are likely to also have male-pattern baldness at some stage.

The condition can sometimes affect women (female-pattern baldness), which is generally characterised by thinning hair on the top of the head.

Treatments for male-pattern baldness include minoxidil (Regaine), and Finasteride (Propecia). Propecia is for use only in men, while minoxidil can be used for women. See Regain For Women.

  • alopecia areata
  • scarring alopecia
  • anagen effluvium
  • telogen effluvium

Propecia (or Finasteride) is available from our Online Doctor.

It works by preventing testosterone being converted to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which allows the hair follicles to regain their normal size.

Studies have shown Propecia can increase hair growth, and can also improve how people think their hair looks.

It can take three to six months of treatment with Propecia before an effect is seen. The balding process usually resumes within six to 12 months if treatment is stopped.

Side effects for Propecia are uncommon. Less than one in 100 men who take Propecia experience a loss in sexual appetite (libido) or erectile dysfunction.

 

Propecia | Finasteride

Propecia (finasteride) is a prescription-only treatment. It’s not available on the NHS so you need a private prescription. Alternatively you can make a private appointment with your GP. We can also generate this at no extra cost when you complete you online assessment, and pay for your treatment.  It is only suitable for men and should never be taken by women.

Taking Propecia

You take one tablet once a day, with or without food.

How it works

Propecia bocks the action of 5α-reductase, a hormone that affects hair growth in men

How quickly it works

Due to the hair growth cycle, it generally takes 3-6 months for you to see the benefits of Propecia (up to 12 months for some cases).

Effectiveness

9 out of 10 men notice improvement in their hair loss – most men stop losing their hair, and some will also see regrowth of hair. Studies were made in men aged 18-41 with mild to moderate hair loss.

On stopping Propecia,  hair loss will usually resume after six to twelve months.

Side effects

Side effects are uncommon and usually mild, but sometimes Finasteride can cause skin rashes. A concern for many men is that it can reduced sex drive and cause erection problems, however only around 1% of men are affected.

There are a number of common myths we hear about hair loss. Some may have some basis in fact, others may sound like common sense to some, and other are just a little ridiculous! So, to clarify some of the common myths and misconceptions about hair loss, we have compiled a list of the ones we hear most often.

  1. Pluck One Grey Hair And Two Grow Back – This hair loss myth has floated around for the longest time. However, it is not true that if you pluck a grey hair, two will grow back!
  2. Standing On Your Head Makes Your Hair Grow  – We told you some are a little ridiculous! Despite this being  a commonly heard myth, we have confidence that you have never spent long periods on your head in the hope of some hair growth! The myth is routed in the false belief that blood flow to the head will help hair growth. However hair loss is not a blood flow problem, but generally linked to sensitivity to dihydrotestosterone.
  3. There’s No Cure For Baldness – From the incredibly optimistic, to the ultra pessimistic. While there is no “miracle cure” that is going to work for everyone, and bring back your hair to it’s most lush, there are certainly many successful treatments. Laser therapy and hair transplant have the highest success rate, although are on the expensive end of treatment. Drugs like Propecia is a successful treatment of hair loss, and other shampoos and lotions (such as Regaine) can also help stop or reverse hair growth in milder cases of hair loss.
  4. Hair gel and hairspray can cause hair loss – Nop! There is no evidence to suggest they can cause balding. Also in this category of myth, over shampooing, or washing do not cause hair loss either. However, the grain of truth in the myths are that over-mechanical utilisation of hair, can weaken it. So things like using curling irons, or constantly pulling at your hair, can lead to acceleration of existing hair loss.
  5. Hair loss is  from your mum’s side of the gene pool – While  the primary baldness gene is on the X chromosome (the one men inherit from their mothers), research suggests that men who have a bald father are more likely to develop male pattern baldness than those who don’t.
  6. Higher Testosterone Linked To Hair Loss – The inherited problem is a sensitivity to DHT (dihydrotestosterone). It is this that can cause hair loss in men and some women. However taking synthetic testosterone can accelerate hair loss in men.
  7. Hats Cause Baldness – Nop! They Don’t! So whether you wear a baseball cap, or a bowler hat, you can dig it out of the cupboard again.
  8. I Can Grow Back Dead Hair Follicles – Unfortunately not. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. Medication like Propecia, or laser therapy, can help hair follicles become thicker and healthier, but the only option for regrowth is a hair transplant.
