    What is hair loss?

    On this page

    What can cause hair loss?

    Male pattern baldness occurs when hair follicles on the head convert the male hormone testosterone into another hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

    Affected follicles become more sensitive to DHT, causing them to shrink, weaken, and eventually die. This slows down hair production and can stop hair growth altogether.

    Other causes of hair loss can include illness, stress or chemotherapy. Hair loss arising from these causes cannot be reversed by the treatments we offer. In some of these cases, hair loss is temporary. We advise you speak to your GP if you experience sudden hair loss.

    Hair loss symptoms

    Hair loss – in the form of male pattern baldness – is a genetic condition. It affects around half of all men aged 50, but some as early as their 20s.

    The main symptom of male pattern baldness is thinning hair at the sides and the top of the head. It's not dangerous and, if the hair loss does not cause you distress, doesn't need to be treated. However, effective treatments are available that will slow hair loss and, in some cases, stimulate hair regrowth.

    How to treat hair loss

    While there isn't a cure for hair loss caused by male pattern baldness, there are effective prescription and over-the-counter treatments available to slow loss and stimulate regrowth. 

    Finasteride/Propecia works by blocking DHT, stopping the hormone from attacking hair follicles. This treatment comes as a daily tablet and it will take three to six months of constant use before you see an effect. This is because of the hair growth cycles in your follicles. 

    Regaine (minoxidil) works by increasing the flow of blood and nutrients to the hair follicles, which can help stimulate new, healthier hair growth. 

    Some people also use shampoo containing saw palmetto for hair loss. Saw palmetto is an herbal remedy that contains some of the same properties as Finasteride, so it might help treat hair loss. 

    Getting all the right nutrients in your diet can help keep your hair strong and healthy, much like the rest of your body. Some men take biotin supplements, which are thought to help support the strength of hair and nails. 

    As soon as you stop using hair loss treatment, hair loss will resume. These treatment is only suitable for men. Find out more about women's hair loss treatments here

    Alternative treatments

    Other hair loss treatment options include hair transplants, laser therapy and wigs or hairpieces.

    Doctor's hair loss advice

    It's best to start treating your hair loss as soon as you notice your hair fall, because it's easier to prevent hair being lost than to regrow it. The treatments we offer have proven to be extremely successful in both preventing loss and encouraging regrowth when taken regularly. Success varies according to how long treatment has been underway, but almost two thirds of men who use it benefit from renewed hair growth, while hair loss is halted in most other men.

    Our hair loss clinic

    You can order Finasteride or Propecia from our hair loss clinic. These treatments have the same active ingredient and work in the same way, Propecia is a branded version of Finasteride. These treatments can only be prescribed to men.

    When you request a treatment, we'll ask you a series of questions as part of your online consultation. Your answers will be reviewed to ensure that the treatment we prescribe is safe for you to take.  

    You can also buy Regaine foam, an over-the-counter medicine for hair loss. You can use this alongside Finasteride and Propecia. Or you can also request a Regaine and Finasteride hair loss treatment bundle

    We also offer an over-the-counter hair loss bundle to help support your hair’s health and treat hair loss. This contains minoxidil 5% solution, a DHT blocking shampoo and biotin capsules, or you can buy these treatments separately. You don’t need a prescription for this bundle, but it can be used alongside Finasteride and Propecia. 

    Our hair loss treatments are available for either discreet delivery or same-day collection depending on the option you choose.

    Treatments and advice you can trust

    Our clinicians are all NHS-experienced and registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) or General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC). As a company, we are registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and regulated by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). This means we can guarantee a high standard of care and genuine medicines if you request treatment from our service.

    Staying safe online

    Avoid anyone selling medicine if they are not registered with the bodies above, and anyone selling baldness cures. There is no medicine that can cure male pattern baldness. Generally these treatments will simply not work, however in some cases the content of the tablets could be dangerous.

    Only ever take prescription medicines that have been prescribed by a registered clinician and dispensed by a licensed pharmacy.
