    About the Finasteride and Regaine hair loss bundle

    On this page

    What are Finasteride and Regaine?

    Both Finasteride and Regaine are two types of hair loss treatment, used to treat hereditary hair loss (male pattern baldness).

    Finasteride contains the active ingredient finasteride. Whereas Regaine foam contains the active ingredient minoxidil. As this is a foam applied to the head, it’s sometimes called topical minoxidil. 

    How does this hair loss bundle work?

    By taking Finasteride and using Regaine together, you’ll be treating your male pattern baldness from two different angles. 

    Finasteride works by blocking DHT, a hormone which affects hair follicles and causes hair loss. By reducing the effect of DHT, the hair follicles can return to a normal growth cycle, slowing hair loss, and in some cases, reversing it. 

    The active ingredient in Regaine, minoxidil, works by increasing blood supply to the hair follicles. This increases the flow of nutrients and stimulating growth.  

    Can you use Finasteride and Regaine foam for men at the same time?

    Yes, using both treatments together might help tackle your hair loss in different ways.

    They’re commonly used together, and there’s no evidence to suggest any negative interactions when using the two treatments at the same time.
    There’s no evidence yet to suggest the combined effectiveness of using Finasteride and Regaine for men together. But we do know that: 

    • Finasteride has been shown to be effective in slowing hair loss in up to 90% of men, and two thirds of men will see regrowth (over two years) 
    • Regaine extra strength foam for men can improve the hairline by up to 21% in 12 weeks

    Can this bundle be used for all types of hair loss?

    No, this bundle is for people who are experiencing male pattern baldness. This is a type of hair loss that’s hereditary, and for lots of men is simply a natural part of ageing.

    Finasteride isn’t suitable for woman. So if you’re a woman experiencing hair loss or hair thinning, visit our women’s hair loss treatments page

    How do I take these treatments?

    Finasteride is a tablet which you take daily – as soon as you stop taking it, it effects will stop, and your hair loss will resume. 

    Regaine extra strength foam for men is applied to the scalp twice a day. You massage it onto any exposed scalp and once it’s dry, you can simply style your hair as normal. Like with Finasteride, as soon as you stop using the treatment, it will stop having an effect and hair loss will return.  

    Will I get any side effects?

    Like with all treatments, there is a chance you’ll experience side effects.

    With Finasteride, side effects aren’t common, but some men experience problems getting an erection or decreased sex drive. In rare cases the treatment can cause depression. 

    With Regaine, some men experience headaches, itching and dermatitis (skin irritation).

    If you have any side effects that concern you, you can contact our clinicians through you Patient Record.  

    Alternative treatments for hair loss

    There are a variety of hair loss treatments available, but Finasteride and minoxidil (the active ingredient in Regaine) are two of the only clinically proven treatments.

    We also offer an over-the-counter hair loss treatment bundle which contains Sons minoxidil 5% solution, a DHT blocking shampoo and biotin capsules.

    Some men might opt for a hair transplant, but this is an option available to everyone, as they can be expensive and fairly invasive. Other options include wigs, hair pieces or makeup. 

    There are some hair loss vitamins which claim to aid hair loss and healthy hair growth. While there is limited evidence to suggest these work, eating a healthy diet and getting all the essential nutrients can help to keep your body (including your hair) as healthy as possible.
