Hairloss. Rogaine (minoxidil) is over the counter and helps both sexes. Propecia has been shown to help men. There are some findings it may help women, but it is not normally prescribed for females.
A few options. To stop a receding hairline nonsurgically the most common option is propecia, (finasteride) hair and skin vitamins will also help. Also make sure any dandruff is under control surgery is also a great option but ca be expensive. This however is permanent.
Minoxidil. Otc Minoxidil 2% is often used in addition to propecia (finasteride). Get the generic 5mg & a pill cutter to cut it into 4 pieces.
Receding hair line. There are over the counter treatments for a receding hairline, like Minoxidil that are helpful. Since the hair loss is in a 17 year old, I would recommend a visit to a dermatologist to make sure there are no other reasons for the hair loss.
Preventing hairloss. If you are 17 and already experiencing male pattern hairloss, it is best to consider using Propecia (finasteride) and minoxidil. Be sure to discuss your health conditions and potential risks or side effects of these medicines with your primary care doctor or dermatologist.
