Hair loss in men usually starts with thinning Hair Revital X Review hair and a receding hairline. In male pattern baldness, hair is lost at the sides and top of the head. It is caused by the accumulation of DHT or dihydrotestosterone in the body. DHT causes hair follicles to shrink and grow weak. The hair strand falls off and the hair follicle is no longer able to produce normal hair.

Obviously, the most effective male hair loss treatment is one that addresses both hair loss and hair regrowth. Men can use finasteride, a prescription medication under the brand name Propecia. It slows down or stops hair loss by blocking the production of DHT. It is effective in 80% of patients treated after three to six months of use. With continued use, hair growth will also improve.

Minoxidil (Rogaine) is a non-prescription hair tonic that is applied directly to the affected area. It promotes hair growth with varying degrees of success. It must be used continually otherwise the effect will wear off.
