Most common problems associated with hereditary hair loss are androgenetic alopecia and alopecia areata both of which can be reversed if treated early and correctly. Among other therapeutic agents finasteride and minoxidil are two drugs that have been approved by U.S. FDA. for current treatment of such conditions.
