Finasteride is basically an antiandrogen compound that acts efficiently to resolve the hair loss problem. The Finasteride was mainly discovered to cure the prostate cancer or to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia. It was noted by some of the cancer patients that when they took this medication that the hair loss issue that they were facing was nearly resolved. Some of them even noted hair regrowth.

This was the good news for the manufacturer and they tested the drug for the treatment of the hair loss. It was noted during the clinical trials that Finasteride showed a complete hair growth in bald men within the time period of 6 to 8 months. This way the Finasteride's new use as a hair loss treatment was confirmed. It was later on approved by the FDA and WHO as a hair loss treatment.

The prostate cancer treatment, Finasteride is now being used to treat hair loss. Chemically, Finasteride is a synthetic 4-azasteroid compound that resolves the problem of hair loss. Finasteride treats hair loss by stopping the conversion of androgen testosterone into 5a-dihydrotestosterone. This way the testosterone concentration in the body is increased that promote the hair regrowth on the bald patches.

The blood supply and nutrient supply to the hair follicles is being improved by the Finasteride that affect the hair growth and you are able to achieve the complete hair growth through the use of this medication. You need to patient enough to achieve the hair regrowth because it is a slow process.
