I can get hold of the 5mg Proscar brand or 5mg generic brand from a licensed doctor here in the UK who kindly prescribes it to be cut in to 4th’s or 5th’s, I’m just not sure about the hassle of chopping it up and trying to get it into equal parts haha But of course I can opt for the expensive route and get Propecia brand 1mg.
The second member of ‘The big three’ and another extremely effective FDA approved hair loss treatment is minoxidil. Minoxidil was originally an oral medication for high blood pressure, after a while, however, patients started reporting hair growth everywhere on their body, and so the minoxidil topical solution for treating hair loss was born.
Too much shampooing, styling, and dyeing can harm your tresses. Heat and chemicals weaken the hair, causing it to break and fall out. Often, it’s a combination of treatments—keratin, coloring, and blow-drying, for instance—that does the damage.
Reasonably priced, this shampoo from TRESemmé has gained a lot of attention as it has been found to be effective against hair fall. It is gentle enough for daily use; it strengthens and restores health to damaged hair and prevents hair fall caused from breakage.
This is also called alopecia areata and basically is a result of an overactive immune system. “The body gets confused,” says Dr. Glashofer. “The immune system sees the hair as foreign and targets it by mistake.”
MayoClinic.com states that some hormonal changes and imbalances in the body can result in temporary hair loss. This can be due to a number of factors such as the onset of menopause, childbirth, or an underactive thyroid gland. If hair loss is due to a hormonal balance, it may be associated with overproduction of testosterone, which can cause the thinning of hair over the crown of the scalp. Following a hormonal imbalance, hair may take three months to grow back.
Include more high-protein foods and vegetables in your diet. Eating lean meats, fish, soy, or other proteins may help to curb hair loss. Additionally, eating a well-balanced diet that contains a lot of vegetables can help you get the vitamins you need in order to grow and maintain a healthy head of hair.

There are dozens of health conditions, as well as a variety of lifestyle factors, that can lead to hair loss or thinning. Sometimes it’s just genetic—this is the sad truth behind many cases—but here are a few other likely culprits behind your hair falling out:
In some cases, a hormonal abnormality, such as excess male hormones known as androgens, may be responsible for hair loss in women. One clue that hormones are involved is if the hair loss pattern resembles that of a man’s hair loss. This can be treated with prescription medications such as spironolactone or oral contraceptives.
I would not take propeciahelp seriously. The website is far far too bias. The testimonies against finasteride are unverifiable anecdotes, not to mention the drug itself is not powerful enough to elicit the side effects some of these people are claiming. I have suspicions that it is run by a competitor of finasteride, as I have seen the same kind of tactics used against other FDA approved hairloss drugs. Its harder to sell snake oils when their are legitimate drugs out there.
