I have heard that Propecia restores hair but that it is only for men. How is that possible? Do men and women have different hair follicles? What is different between men and women that makes this so?
Propecia does work much better in men than women and the reason for this is that hormonally the two genders are very different. Men and women lose their hair usually for different reasons. Men have a problem with the testosterone and male androgens that work in concert with the genetic disposition to lose hair that women do not have. Because the genesis of the hair loss is different, it also is affected differently by the medication which works to solve the problem in men but not so with women.
