Optimising your hair loss treatment plan 

When it comes to treating male pattern hair loss, choosing the most effective medication and turning to effective products will make a huge difference. But choosing the right treatment plan is very much the first step, and there are several things you can do to ensure that your treatment is as effective as possible. So, with that in mind, here are some top tips for optimising your hair loss treatment plan to help you achieve your hair growth goals this year. 

Choose the right plan for you 

The first and most important thing to realise is that there are several hair loss treatment plans available, and you can choose an option that makes sense to you. The most effective hair loss treatment plans include Finasteride and Minoxidil - the only two medications that have been clinically proven to combat male pattern hair loss. The inclusion of products like Biotin and DHT-blocking shampoo can supplement the medications and provide you with the best possible chance to combat hair loss. Browse our selection of male pattern hair loss treatment plans to find the best solution for you.

Be consistent 

As is the case with all medication, you need to be routine and consistent with your hair loss treatment plan. Finasteride and Minoxidil must be taken daily, and skipping days will have a negative impact on the efficacy of the medication. While it can be difficult to adjust to taking the medication regularly, we recommend incorporating your hair loss medication into your daily routine to make things easier for yourself. For instance, taking your medication immediately after brushing your teeth or with a glass of water at breakfast can make a big difference. 

Consider your lifestyle choices 

Although male pattern hair loss is predominantly a genetic condition, there is evidence to suggest that some aspects of your lifestyle can affect the health and strength of your hair. Therefore, when you start your hair loss treatment plan, it makes sense to improve your lifestyle choices to help enhance the strength of your hair. Reduce your alcohol consumption, stop smoking, exercise regularly, and improve your diet to contribute positively to your hair loss treatment plan. 

Be patient 

Patience is a virtue, but it’s so important when you undertake a hair loss treatment plan. While we would all love to see overnight results, the reality is that most hair loss products take several months - even up to a year - to start showing results. In fact, in the short term, you might even experience hair shedding as your medication gets to work. Therefore, it’s incredibly important to be patient with your hair loss medication and not stop taking it because you don’t think it’s working. Although it takes a while for the results to show, it’s undoubtedly worth the wait! 

Recap: Optimising your hair loss treatment plan 

So, optimising your hair loss treatment plan is about regulating and improving your daily habits. Choosing the right plan, being consistent, improving your lifestyle choices, and remaining patient will all help you achieve the best possible results when you take the likes of Finasteride and Minoxidil.
