Finasteride is a 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor that blocks the production of a male hormone in the scalp that stops hair growth and reverses the balding process and prevents further hair loss. Minoxidil is a vasodilator that widens the blood vessels and opens potassium channels. This vasodilation process helps provide oxygen, blood, and nutrients to the hair follicles, thereby preventing hair cell death and promoting new hair growth.
