    You can’t always prevent your hair from falling out as you age, but there are treatments and remedies that might slow down the process.

    Before you go out and buy supplements and special tonics, learn which ones have shown some promise in preventing or treating hair loss.

    Male pattern baldness, also known as androgenetic alopecia, is an inherited trait. It affects more than half of men over the age of 50.

    Here are 17 hair loss treatments you can talk to your doctor about:

    Prescription and OTC drugs

    1. Prescription and OTC drugs

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved two drugs to treat male pattern baldness:

    Minoxidil (Rogaine): Rogaine is available over the counter as a liquid or foam. Apply it to the scalp twice a day to grow hair and prevent hair loss.
    Finasteride (Propecia, Proscar):This is a pill that you take daily. It’s only available with a prescription from your doctor.
    For both of these drugs, it may take up to a year to see results, and you’ll need to keep taking them to maintain the benefits.

    Hair transplants

    2. Hair transplants

    The two most popular hair transplant procedures are follicular unit transplantation and follicular unit extraction:

    Follicular unit transplantation (FUT)

    FUT is the more “classic” method. It involves removing some skin from the back of your scalp where there’s an abundance of hair, removing the follicles from that strip of skin, and then reinserting the hair follicles into the part of the scalp where you’re experiencing hair loss.

    Follicular unit extraction (FUE)

    In FUE, hair follicles are removed directly from the scalp and transplanted to the bald parts of the scalp.

    Keep in mind that a hair transplant is considered a surgery, so it can be expensive and may be painful.

    There are also certain risks, including infections and scarring. You may also need to do multiple hair transplant treatments to get the desired outcome.

    Laser treatment

    3. Laser treatment

    Laser treatment is thought to reduce the inflammation in follicles that keeps them from regrowing.

    There are limited studies to support their effectiveness in treating hair loss, but further studies determined that low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is safe and effective when used to treat male pattern hair loss. More research is still needed.

    5 lifestyle changes

    4. Quit smoking

    If you’re a smoker, you’ve probably heard about all the negative effects smoking has on your lungs. But did you know that smoking could cause hair loss — on top of facial wrinkles and premature graying of hair?

    To prevent hair loss, it may be a good idea to quit smoking as soon as possible.

    5. Scalp massage

    Not only do massages feel wonderful, but they can help with your hair loss, too. Massaging the scalp stimulates the hair follicles.

    For instance in real life an healthy Japanese men who received 4 minutes of scalp massage each day for 24 weeks had thicker hair at the end of the study.

    6. A balanced diet

    A well-balanced diet can keep your hair in tip-top shape. Make sure you’re including a variety of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, unsaturated fats, and lean proteins in your diet, and limit your intake of sweets.

    Certain vitamins and minerals found in food are associated with healthy hair.

    Try adding in these types of foods:

    iron-rich foods, including lean beef, beans, green leafy vegetables, iron-fortified grains, and eggs
    foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such salmon, mackerel, tuna, flax seeds, egg yolks, hemp seeds, and walnuts
    high-protein foods, like eggs, lean meats, and seafood
    Last but not least, make sure you’re drinking plenty of water.

    7. Get a checkup

    Aside from your genetics, there are several medical conditions that can result in hair loss. You’ll be able to address your hair loss by treating the underlying condition.

    The following conditions could lead to hair loss:

    lichen planus
    scalp psoriasis (due to scratching of the scalp)
    alopecia areata
    thyroid conditions
    eating disorders (due to poor nutrition)
    iron deficiency anemia
    hair pulling disorder, known as trichotillomania
    Celiac disease
    If you have any of these conditions, or you’re experiencing other symptoms besides hair loss, make sure you visit your doctor and get the treatment you need. Your hair loss should improve as your condition improves.

    8. Reduce stress

    Stress can really do a number on the body, including your hair. Hair loss may be a result of a stressful lifestyle.

    Strategies to reduce stress include:

    regular exercise
    listening to music
    doing yoga
    Getting enough sleep is also essential.

    7 alternative remedies

    9. Oils

    Studies say that peppermint oil can help with hair growth. Rosemary oil has also been traditionally used to increase blood circulation on the scalp.

    Studies also found that rosemary leaf extract improved hair regrowth in mice.

    Coconut oil, castor oil, and olive oil are also widely recommended, but research on their benefits for hair growth is limited.

    10. Saw palmetto

    Saw palmetto is a plant with small berries that’s often used as part of a treatment plan for an enlarged prostate.

    While research is narrow on saw palmetto’s ability to treat hair loss, one study showed positive results for men treated with a topical formula.

    11. Biotin

    Biotin is a vitamin found naturally in foods like:

    sweet potatoes
    There’s some evidence that taking biotin supplements by mouth may slow hair loss, but most of the research has been done in women.

    12. Onion juice

    An older study showed that the use of onion juice as a topical treatment resulted in significantly more regrowth than just tap water in people with patchy alopecia areata.

    13. Bhringraj

    Bhringraj (Eclipta alba), also called false daisy, is a species in the sunflower family with a reputation in Ayurvedic tradition as an herb that supports hair growth.

    Studies in mice have shown that extracts of the herb do show better hair regrowth than minoxidil (Rogaine). However, more research is needed to confirm these effects in humans.

    14. Green tea

    Another purported herbal remedy for hair loss is green tea.

    An older study proves that in mice on the polyphenolic compounds present in green tea showed promise as a natural remedy for hair loss, but human studies haven’t been done to confirm these effects.

    15. Hibiscus

    Hibiscus rosa-sinesis is marketed widely in India for hair growth. One showed positive effects on hair follicles, but no studies have been done in humans.

    Hair care tips

    16. Be gentle with your locks

    Try to be as gentle as possible when brushing or styling your hair. Constantly twisting, twirling, or pulling your hair tight can lead to hair loss.

    If you’re worried about hair loss, you may want to avoid the following:

    tight hairstyles, such as pigtails, cornrows, braids, and buns
    hot oil treatments
    chemicals used in perms and hair straightening treatments
    hot curling irons or straightening irons
    bleaching your hair
    If you must use chemicals or bleach in your hair, seek help from a trained professional. Don’t try to do it yourself at home.

    One more tip and the bottom line

    17. Stop or change a medication

    Certain medications can lead to hair loss. Examples include:

    chemotherapy and radiation treatments
    blood thinners (anticoagulants)
    drugs to treat depression
    medications used to treat high blood pressure
    heart medications
    gout medications
    isotretinoin (Accutane), an acne treatment
