For most people, price is the most important question at the consultation. Obviously, the price will vary based on the level of hair loss and how much work will be involved in restoring the hair that has fallen out.
For mild hair loss such as minimal receding hair loss in the temporal lobes, a budgetary plan can be made to not necessarily restore the hair in that area but to minimize any further loss. A regiment of Propecia every day will block the DHT hormone that is causing the hair loss and will cost roughly $30 per month. This is a good start for anyone who is suffering from male pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia.
Another good start is to use Rogaine or minoxidil twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. This helps stop the miniaturization of your hair strands and keeps them around longer.
