Many men (and to a lesser extent women) suffer from hair loss and baldness . As many as 20% of men are already balding on their 20th and 40% around 40. Often the reason for the hair loss is simply explained by heredity .
Until recently it was actually said: shave your hair for a short or late hair transplant (we leave a wig here for a moment).
Using tools such as vitamin B or using hair water may be useful, but will not prevent a hereditary form of hair loss. Medical science and business have not stood still in recent years. A number of ‘new products’ have appeared on the market that are very successful for many people:
Finasteride : this is a substance that has been shown to block the conversion of testosterone to DHT (hydrotestosterone). DHT shortens the growth phase of the hair, causing baldness. Finasteride has been marketed as a remedy against prostate enlargement. Finasteride is available in pill form ( Propecia ). The medicine is not reimbursed by the health insurer.
Dutasteride : this substance appears to be more effective than finasteride in blocking sales of testosterone to DHT. Here too it is a substance that was previously only used to prevent prostate enlargement. The drug is in pill form and is under the drug name Avodart . If you use Finateride or Dustasteride it is ALWAYS necessary to make an appointment with your doctor. The dose must be determined in consultation with your doctor.
In addition to the abovementioned resources, there are many resources on the market that can be obtained from the chemist. The efficacy of these products has often not been scientifically proven.
