What Causes Hair Loss?
The solution to the question how to stop hair loss cheap lies in manipulating blood and scalp DHT levels. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a more potent form of testosterone which is responsible for a number of important functions in every male’s body, including penis size, muscle strength and libido.
DHT is synthesized from testosterone by the enzyme 5a-reductase in significant amounts, particularly in areas such as hair follicles. Hair follicles on the side and back of most male’s heads are genetically resistant to DHT.
Hair follicles on the scalp, particularly on the temples and crown are subject to miniaturisation when DHT attaches to the Dermal Papilis (root) of the hair follicle.
DHT causes the anagen (growing) phase to shorten and telogen (resting) phase to extend until the hair follicle stops growing any hair. Some men are more genetically prone to this which leads to greater hair loss especially with age. Increased levels of DHT from using anabolic steroids can also lead to more hair loss.
Hair loss can be eliminated with chance of possibly significant regrowth if levels of DHT circulating in the body are reduced and DHT is prevented from directly attaching to hair follicles. The best solution to stop hair loss cheap is one where DHT levels are maintained a low level consistently.
Hair Loss Treatments
Finasteride (brand name Propecia) should be your first weapon in finding the answer to how to stop hair loss cheap. Finasteride is a 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor which will prevent the formation of DHT from testosterone.
A standard dose of finasteride 1mg per day has been clinically proven to lower DHT levels by 70%. It does this by competitively inhibiting the 5a–reductase enzyme. Through the action of finasteride binding to the active site of the 5AR enzyme, the testosterone molecule can not attach and form an enzyme-substrate complex. This stops the production of DHT thereby proving to be a fantastic way to stop hair loss cheap.
Despite some of the negative publicity, finasteride has aided millions of men around the world in maintaining their hair. In my own experience and from evidence online if finasteride use started soon after the onset of hair loss, the chance of hair regrowth is high. Generic Finasteride from internal pharmacies can be the most cost efficient way to stop hair loss cheap.
Research studies have found around a 2% prevalence of men trying to stop hair loss cheap having some sexual side effects such as lower libido and occasional difficulty achieving erection. In nearly every case when finasteride is stopped, the side effects go away. In my own experience once finasteride is started a blood test needs to be done to find levels of DHT. For those looking to stop hair loss cheap, the key is to ensure DHT levels are at or slightly under the bottom value of the reference range 30-85 ng/dl. If DHT values are too low the amount of finasteride needs to be reduced until you hit that 30 ng/dl mark. Maintaining your DHT levels at 30 ng/dl should help stop hair loss cheap but also maintain sexual function.
Hormones such as free testosterone, oestradiol and prolactin also play a significant role in libido. If your DHT value is around the 30 ng/dl mark however libido is poor, more blood tests need to be done to measure these values. Medichecks offer a fantastic blood test service where you can collect a finger prick sample at your home and post the sample back to their laboratory which will provide you with the results on your online account page along with doctor analysis usually the very next day. I would also recommend getting your DHT levels tested via Medichecks to ensure you are at the 30 ng/dl mark. You can also choose to have your blood taken at the Medichecks London facility or visit one of the partner clinics throughout the UK to get bloods drawn. The Medichecks link is below.
My method to stop hair loss cheap is purchasing 5mg generic Fincar tablets from Reliable RX Pharmacy. I use a pill cutter to cut the pills in half and use a dose of 2.5mg on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. This maintains my DHT levels around 30 ng/dl.
Since Reliable RX Pharmacy ships internationally from India and only produce generics not brand name medication, the price typically ends up being around 3-5 times cheaper than you would pay in the UK or even USA. Purchasing generic finasteride rather than brand name Propecia is the most efficient method to stop hair loss cheap. The link is below.
Minoxidil is a FDA approved medication particularly for hair regrowth. Minoxidil encourages blood flow to hair follicles by widening blood vessels which leads to more oxygen, blood and nutrients to the hair follicle. This causes hair follicles in the telogen (resting) stage to shed and be replacement by thicker hair follicles in the anagen (growing) stage.
A study published by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery found: ‘Men who used 5% minoxidil on a daily basis for an entire year lowered their hair loss from washing from an average of 69.7 hairs to 33.8 hairs. Men who didn’t use minoxidil experienced increased hair loss or maintained their current rate’. This proves minoxidil is a effective treatment to stop hair loss cheap.
Minoxidil is best used 1ml twice a day on thinning areas. As the 5% minoxidil solution can be very messy and lead to your hair being difficult to style, I would recommend purchasing the 5% Regaine foam. They key to long term hair loss prevention is consistency. Your hair loss treatments need to be maintain ease of use to achieve that consistency and to stop hair loss cheap. The link is below.
Ketoconazole shampoo has a significant anti-androgenic effect as shown by the American Hair Loss Association who state ketoconazole is know to have an inhibiting effect on the binding of DHT to hair follicles applied topically and an inhibiting effect on the binding of androgens to receptors when ingested orally. This is a great feature for men looking to stop hair loss cheap.
The inherent anti-fungal properties of Ketoconazole can reduce scalp microflora and therefore reduce follicular inflammation which results in hair loss. Ketoconazole also reduces the activity of the sebaceous glands, reducing sebum production. Since sebaceous glands are attached to hair follicles, overactive glands may clog the hair follicles with excess sebum, disrupting the hair growth cycle.
I would highly recommend using Nizoral, a ketoconazole shampoo when you shower to eliminate the DHT topically from your scalp. It is best to leave the shampoo on your head for at least 5 minutes before rinsing. After use you will notice your scalp being significantly less itchy as a result of the anti-DHT effects.

Ru-58841 is an effective anti-androgen which is for research purposes only. Ru-58841 is a topical solution which can be incredibly effective in elimating DHT from your scalp. Through attaching to the hair follicle, DHT can now no longer bind and cause miniaturisation. Ru-58841 also aids in cellular recovery by allowing time for damaged follicles to transition back to a normal anagen phase.
Another benefit of Ru-58841 is its selective nature which means it does not reduce DHT in the blood but does so topically on the scalp. As mentioned above this is key as DHT plays an important role in every males body and reducing levels below 30 ng/dl is simply asking for trouble.
A study by the Journal of Dermatology tested the effect of Ru-58841 on bald monkeys. Ru-58841 resulted in an increase of 103% on the population of hair follicles in the anagen (growing) stage. Importantly the researchers also found Ru-58841 caused no change in testosterone levels. Due to the strength of Ru-58841 a dose of 1ml of the 5% solution once a day should be sufficient. Ru-58841 can be argued to be the most effective solution to stop hair loss cheap. Click the link below to purchase from a trusted lab tested source.
