Weird concoction: Aminexil is standard but the last three don't make sense. Like most men blessed with a lot of body hair, your scalp hair loss is genetically programmed and you have a variety of options. Your physician can guide you -- or you can do like many super-tough men, shave your head and focus on physical fitness. It's a choice for you and anybody special in your life to make togetehr.
