Question: i use Alpecin double effect shampoo last 3 month but my hair loss day by day what i do?
Answer: Hi, Saqib. Alpecin and other caffeine shampoos do not actually treat male hair loss as they do not stop the underlying cause. It is thought they may help to prevent some cases of Male Pattern Baldness, for those with a genetic propensity to the hereditary hair loss condition, it cannot create regrowth.
Targeted male hair loss treatment works by inhibiting the DHT which causes thinning hair associated with androgenic alopecia. This hormone by-product attacks the hair follicles around the top of the head of those who are susceptible, causing the hair to thin and eventually cease production, leading to baldness if left untreated.
There are only two clinically-proven treatments licensed by the MHRA and FDA for this type of hair loss. These are finasteride 1mg, an oral tablet, and minoxidil, a topical substance which is applied to the scalp and helps to stimulate the hair follicles into promoting regrowth. A hair loss specialist will be able to help assess your pattern and level of shedding and can then build a personally-tailored treatment plan around your needs.
