Minoxidil finasteride topical solution reviews
This topical helped me get more hair, and boosted my confidence.
I tried Propecia and it reduced my libido. Then I switched to Happy Head and I got it back.
I thought a hair transplant was the only option, then Happy Head saved me from balding!
I was afraid of the side effects of oral Propecia so I tried Happy Head, haven’t had a problem.
Oral finasteride gave me poor performance in bed. This topical finasteride has me back on game!
All the stress from work made my hair fall out. Happy Head made my hair grow full.

Topical Finasteride for Hair Loss
Topical finasteride is a modern method that procures efficient hair loss treatment with possible lower systemic adverse occurrences, according to clinical studies. Research shows that when compared to the tablet form of 1mg dosage, 0.25% topical finasteride exhibit similar remedial effects. Hence, like oral preparation, topical finasteride for hair loss works to reduce scalp and serum DHT levels, a higher amount of which is found in miniaturized hair follicles. According to clinical studies, topical finasteride may be a safer alternative to oral finasteride.
Is Topical Finasteride Effective?
Does topical finasteride really work? Yes. There are many clinical studies demonstrating the efficacy of topical finasteride for male pattern hair loss. For example, in a clinical trial study of 45 male patients, Hajheydari et al. (2009) compared oral finasteride 1mg vs topical finasteride 1% for a total of 6 months. Both the oral finasteride 1mg and the topical finasteride 1% showed statistically significant increase in total and terminal hair count after 4 months. Authors concluded that “the therapeutic effects of both finasteride gel and finasteride tablet were relatively similar to each other.” For a summary of current clinical studies, please read our blog post titled “Efficacy of Topical Finasteride: Review of Current Medical Literature.”
How Does Topical Finasteride for Hair Loss Work?
This innovative method reduces the levels of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and hinders the miniaturization of hair follicles in patients suffering from androgenetic alopecia (AGA).
Does Topical Finasteride Regrow Hair?
Finasteride is indicated for male pattern hair loss, known as androgenetic alopecia. It is a 5AR-inhibitor and prevents formation of DHT. Clinical study by Hajheydari et al. (2009) has shown an increase in terminal hair count after several months of topical finasteride use, demonstrating that topical finasteride can cause hair to regrow and increase hair density.
How Long Does Topical Finasteride Take to Work?
With daily application of topical finasteride, the results are typically seen within 6 months of use.
Side Effects of Topical Finasteride
Are there any side effects of topical finasteride? Clinical studies demonstrate that topical finasteride has clinically proven, evidence-based, scientific data to show its efficacy in growing hair and that it may have a lower side effect profile compared to oral finasteride. There are many side effects associated with ORAL finasteride, especially sexual side effects. There have been many clinical studies on TOPICAL finasteride. Majority of those studies showed no sexual side effects for patient using topical finasteride, sometimes at higher concentration than our formula. Specifically, out of the 7 clinical studies reported above, only one study showed one event with sexual side effects (testicular pain). This is 1 out of 268 subjects in all of the studies, which equates to a rate of 0.37%. In contrast, oral finasteride is associated with sexual side effects in 1.8% to 3.8% of patients. One should be aware that side effects may still occur even with topical finasteride and it is recommended to titrate up the use of topical finasteride in order to avoid shocking the system and our physicians will go over that with you. Please remember that any side effect that may occur on oral finasteride can possibly occur with topical finasteride, but according to clinical studies, the side effects may be lower. Please note that patients may have different sensitivity to the topical finasteride, thus results and side effects may vary. Please consult with a physician before starting prescription strength topical finasteride. In the case of Happy Head, you will have a physician consultation in order to determine eligibility for the topical finasteride. Eligibility is based upon medical history, current degree of hair loss, allergies etc. Your physician will also review side effects with you in writing.
