Propecia works in men by stopping the production of DHT. DHT is the hormone that is responsible for genetic hair loss in men. Unfortunately, most cases of hair loss in women are not due to the production of DHT. This is because DHT is almost non-existent in women. Because of this, Propecia is not approved for use in women.
As of now, there are no FDA approved oral medications that help fight hair loss for women. However, there still are other hair loss solutions available for females. Rogaine (minoxidil) for example is a topical medication that is available for treating women’s hair loss. Rogaine is rather effective for slowing down hair loss, and re-growing some lost hair (if in early stages) in women but only if used continuously and diligently. Bosley offers the only permanent solution to hair loss to women as well, by surgical hair transplantation. This is the best solution for women who are looking to stop hair loss or restore hair as it is permanent.
