In brief: Rogaine (minoxidil) foam

5 per cent rogaine (minoxidil) foam will slow hair loss, mostly in the back of the head and grow hair in one third of men.
It can be combined with oral Propecia or laser therapy to prevent hair loss. Men with a very strong pattern will lose significant hair but can lessen the loss.

In brief: Nothing

Nothing on hair can "prevent" balding. Sorry.
