What are some good ways to battle a receding hairline?

Minoxidil (Rogaine) Rogaine (minoxidil) (otc) can sometimes gain substantial volume, but it will almost always minimize further hair loss. This is a topical treatment, and does have to be continued to maintain its results. Propecia (finasteride) is another medication which is often very helpful, but needs a prescription. Seek consultation with a qualified hair transplant surgeon in your area.
