Name: Muhammad

Can I Mash Finasteride 1mg Tablets Into a Paste and Use in Head Massage?Question: hi can i use finasteride tablet mashed and mix it in oil and then use this in hair massage? If not, you suggest me a topical solution that works as DHT blocker?

Answer: Hi Muhammad, As per the manufacturers’ advice, finasteride 1mg is an oral tablet for the treatment of male pattern hair loss, so you need to swallow it for it to take effect.

Applying it topically in any form will not work and, as with any medication, you need to follow the accompanying usage directions that are included with the product.

Minoxidil – which is available with boosters to help inhibit DHT formation – is a topical hair loss treatment that you may find of interest. If you prefer not to take tablets, this option may be worth considering. We have a number of Belgravia clients following minoxidil-based treatment programmes complemented by hair growth boosters, who have seen significant regrowth whilst following this type of regime.

A hair loss specialist will be able to discuss all the treatment options available with you and personalise a plan to suit.
