Sprays, shampoos, or tablets? How to find the right treatment for hair loss

01 August 2023
2-minute read

If you’ve noticed the early signs of male pattern hair loss, you will almost certainly have started your research into potential forms of treatment. As you might be aware, there are lots of different types of products that are advertised as hair loss treatment options, making it difficult to know where to begin. With that in mind, we take a look at some of the best treatment options available for male pattern hair loss and help you understand the differences between them. 

Hair loss tablets 

The most effective way to treat male pattern hair loss is through oral Finasteride. Finasteride comes in tablet form and should be taken daily in order to achieve hair loss results in the long run. As a prescription medication, oral Finasteride works by blocking the growth of DHT - the growth hormone that is responsible for hair loss in most men. When left unchecked, DHT can bind to the receptors on your hair follicles, eventually causing them to shrivel and die. So, if you’re looking for a successful hair loss tablet, oral Finasteride is the best option for you. 

Hair loss sprays and serums 

Another option to consider when seeking to treat hair loss is sprays and serums. Minoxidil is another medication that has been scientifically proven to treat male pattern hair loss, and it typically comes as a spray or serum. You can apply Minoxidil to the affected areas of your scalp, and it works as a vasodilator, stimulating the flow of blood and oxygen to the hair follicles that have been stunted. It’s perfectly safe to use oral Finasteride alongside a Minoxidil serum, and the two are considered as the most successful duo when it comes to treating male pattern hair loss. 

Hair loss shampoos 

Another form of hair loss treatment that you might have come across is a DHT-blocking shampoo. While not a clinically proven medication, DHT-blocking shampoo can be used as a supplementary form of treatment for hair loss. Consisting of saw-palmetto and other natural ingredients, our DHT-blocking shampoo blocks the growth of DHT, contributing to the success of Finasteride and helping to ensure that your chosen hair loss plan is successful. While it might not be successful in isolation, incorporating a hair loss shampoo into your treatment plan can certainly be effective. 

What about other products and supplements? 


Another product that can improve the strength and health of your hair is Biotin. Also known as vitamin B7, Biotin comes in the form of a daily supplement that you can take to bolster the levels of keratin in your body, which is a fundamental protein that contributes to your hair growth. When taken alongside other hair loss products and medications, Biotin can improve the general health and appearance of your hair, so it’s well worth considering. 

Recap: The different hair loss treatment options available 

As you can see, there are several ways to treat male pattern hair loss. Our advice is to opt for Finasteride and Minoxidil, as they are scientifically proven to be effective for most men. You can then supplement your use of hair loss medication with selected products - like Biotin and DHT-blocking shampoo - to enhance the strength and general condition of your hair.
