In brief: Female Pattern Loss

The only medication approved by the United States food and drug administration (fda) to treat female pattern baldness is minoxidil.
It is applied to the scalp. For women, the 2% concentration is recommended. Minoxidil may help hair grow in about 1 in 4 or 5 of women. In most women it may slow or stop hair loss. You must continue to use this medicine for a long time. Spiranolactone can help.
