Prescription drugs and over the counter products for hair loss have been slow in coming because researchers are unable to grow hairs in petri dishes to use for screening. Drugs for female hair problems are even slower to develop, in part because it’s easier to do measurements and hair counts on men in clinical trials. Finasteride, better known by the brand name Propecia, is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration for women. (Because it works on hormones, it is also controversial for them.) Minoxidil (Rogaine) 5% is the only topical medication approved by the FDA for female-pattern hair loss. Rogaine claims when used once a day, the foam treatment has regrown hair in 81% of the women who have tried it with noticeable results usually taking three to four months. Laser hair regrowth devices that claim to reverse shrinking of the follicles, stimulate hair growth and more, are also targeting women with caps and combs. However, even when used for 40 minutes a week and combined with Rogaine, the results have not yet proven to be cosmetically acceptable to most women who have tried them.
