Why consistency is key with your hair loss treatment

2-minute read

Modern life is stressful - there’s no doubt about that. When you’ve had a busy day at work or you’re out and about with friends, it can be easy to lose track of important daily tasks. However, when it comes to your hair loss treatment, consistency can have a huge impact on the end result. Here’s why consistency is so important to your hair loss treatment.

Building a foundation

Is your Finasteride not working after 6 months? As with many other medications, Finasteride and Minoxidil need time to take effect. While it may feel frustrating initially, patience is a key part of our hair loss treatment. After not seeing results after a few weeks, it’s not unusual for men to skip the days they should be taking their medication and eventually ditch it altogether. Daily consumption gives Finasteride and Minoxidil the best chance to work at their best and provides the building blocks for a healthy head of hair. Once Finasteride starts to block DHT, hair follicles are able to achieve their growth potential again, but this takes time and results are seen from anywhere from 6 to 12 months. Remember, sometimes the only sign that a hair loss treatment is working is that your hair loss has not got worse.

Getting the best results

It’s simple - the reason you’ve decided to pursue hair loss treatment is to get some positive results for your hair. A daily routine of taking the right medication over the space of a year is one of the best ways you can do that. Even skipping a few days every month is enough to have an impact on your final results, so it’s crucial to keep at it. Thankfully, our medication is easy to take, so the process takes up a small amount of your day. 

Struggling to get into a routine? Here are some top tips:

  • Link your medication time to other habits

  • One of the best ways to stick to your medication routine is by linking them up with other daily habits. For instance, Finasteride and Minoxidil must be taken every day to be effective, so why not link that process up with brushing your teeth in the morning or before you go to bed?  

  • Set daily reminders
  • Setting reminders at the same time every day is another great way to stick by your routine. If you’ve got it set alongside a daily habit too, you’ll increase your chances of remembering every time. 

  • Stick with it 

  • Are you still forgetting even after a couple of weeks? Scientists say that a daily action becomes a habit after a period of 28 days. So - if you still feel like you’re forgetting on the regular, keep at it and taking your medication will become second nature in no time. 

    Ultimately, taking your medication consistently on a daily basis will give you the best chances of reclaiming your hair. If you’re interested in getting started, make sure to get in touch with us today for a free consultation.
