Can Sons' products be used by women to treat hair loss?
The Sons’ range is designed for hair loss in men only.
While minoxidil can be used to treat female pattern baldness, the 5% solution is not recommended for women.
If you’re a woman suffering from hair loss, speak to your GP about the treatment options, or visit our hair loss for women information page.

What is caffeine shampoo?
Caffeine shampoos, like Alpecin and Plantur 39, are designed to treat hair loss by using caffeine extract.
The idea is that caffeine will be absorbed into the scalp and stimulate the hair follicles to regrow, however, research into its efficacy is ongoing.
It’s recommended that you should leave the shampoo in your hair for around 2 minutes before rinsing.
Can Women Use Regaine For Men?
You’ve probably noticed that Regaine products are split into treatments for men and women.
This isn’t just so Regaine could make two sets of lovely packaging, but is because the formulations of each set of products are slightly different.
Men and women have natural differences in their hair, and Regaine products are designed to reflect this.
You should always make sure that you’re using the right product for you, so if you’re not sure which product you should use due to your gender identity, make sure to speak to your doctor or pharmacist before using this product for the first time.
