Steroids will speed up hair loss, but will avodart (dutasteride) or proscar really work to prevent this when on cycle?

In brief: Do you need it?

Since no known study has been done to specifically address the issues in this Q at least in my 46 yrs in training/practice in urology, I would hesitate to offer any related opinions.
However, it is still logical to know what is your specific concern/goal of considering the use of a-alpha reductase inhibitors before embarking such application. More? To http://www.formefirst.com/eNewsletter06.html.

In brief: No

Steroid does not cause hair loss and is in fact used at times as a local injection to try to get hair to regrow in case of alopecia although the effectiveness is not consistent .
Proscar has been linked to regrowth of hair in males however.
