Best Hair Loss Treatments for Men in Malaysia 2020

If you are looking for the best hair loss treatment for men in Malaysia, you are in the right place.

According to the American Hair Loss Association, about 85% of men will have significant hair thinning by the time they turn 50, and some men will even begin to lose hair as early as 21.

We think even just reading those figures could make you lose your hair! However, if you equip yourself with the facts, you can tackle this challenging phase of your life with confidence.

The key is to know what type of hair loss you’re experiencing, what’s causing it, and the different treatment options available to you.

There are viable solutions, starting with topical hair growth treatments. Finding one that works for you, however, can be easier said than done. But we’re here to help.

We went deep into Google search to figure out which ingredients make an excellent hair regrowth product and researched the leading products currently in the Malaysian market.

Here is the list.

Men's Rogain 5% Minoxidill Foam for Hair Loss and Hair Regrowth, Topical Treatment for Thinning Hair, 3-Month Supply

MYR 297 > Lazada Malaysia (sold by Minoxidil Mart)

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Minoxidil to treat male pattern baldness. Minoxidil (Rogaine): Rogaine is available over the counter as a liquid or foam. 

Applied twice daily to the area of hair loss on the scalp, results can be seen as early as two months, but can sometimes take up to four. Approximately 40% of users will regrow some hair after 3–6 months of daily application, and those stats earn it our stamp of approval.
Rogaine’s active ingredient is minoxidil, a chemical that stimulates hair growth. This foam formula contains 5% minoxidil, making it a more powerful alternative to Rogaine’s 2% option. The foam makes it easier to see where you’re applying it, and it helps the product stay in place. If you've grown concerned about your receding hairline, Rogaine is well worth a shot.

Best Shampoo: Nioxin Cleanser Shampoo
RM 90 (promotion price, 60% discount): Lazada Malaysia

Men who want to incorporate more than one hair loss product into their regimen should check out shampoos that promote regrowth and reduce thinning. Nioxin’s Cleanser Shampoo is a solid choice for men whose hair is just beginning to thin or fall out.
Nioxin’s Level 1 shampoo works to thicken and strengthen existing hair. Its thickening formula may reduce hair loss that’s related to thinning, broken strands. This salon-quality shampoo also uses a concentrated blend of botanicals and humectants for light moisture that won’t weigh your hair down. The shampoo claims that its detoxifying formula also removes excess oil and grease for a cleaner, healthier scalp.

Amplixin Intensive Biotin Hair Growth Serum - Hair Loss Prevention Treatment For Men Women With Thinning Hair - Sulfate-Free Dht Blocker For Receding Hairline Pattern Baldness 2Oz

MYR 227 > Lazada Malaysia

For some men, using a spray treatment for hair loss is much easier than dealing with sticky foams, thick creams, or shampoo/conditioner combos. Amplixin’s hair loss treatment spray is a user-friendly option for all hair types.
Amplixin’s formula contains ingredients that may block DHT, the hormone that’s associated with hair loss in men. The spray contains Saw Palmetto and Red Clover, two botanicals that show promise in reducing hair loss and promoting hair regrowth. It’s also infused with biotin, and the spray’s caffeine adds a refreshing feeling to your scalp every time you apply it.

Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for normal growth and body function. Biotin functions as a key regulatory element in gluconeogenesis, fatty acid synthesis and in the metabolism of some amino acids. Alongside its role in energy production, Biotin enhances the synthesis of certain proteins. In addition, Biotin promotes healthy immune system function and plays a critical role in skin health.

Best Hair Transplant: Follicular Unit Extraction Method

In FUE, hair follicles are removed directly from the scalp and transplanted to the bald parts of the scalp.
Keep in mind that a hair transplant is considered a surgery, so it can be expensive and may be painful.

The FUT (follicular unit transplantation), the more “classic” method involves removing some skin from the back of your scalp where there’s an abundance of hair, removing the follicles from that strip of skin, and then reinserting the hair follicles into the part of the scalp where you’re experiencing hair loss.

Types of Hair Loss

Most men can expect to encounter one of these four types of hair loss at some point in their lives.

Involutional Alopecia
Involutional alopecia is the gradual thinning of the hair that occurs with age. It is a natural condition that happens as more and more hair follicles go into the telogen, or “resting” phase. In this phase, hair continues to get shorter with fewer hairs growing, and it becomes harder to regrow hair.

Androgenetic Alopecia
Androgenetic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness, is a hereditary condition characterized by a receding hairline and gradual disappearance of the hair from the top of the scalp. This condition is responsible for the vast majority of hair loss in males. It can affect both men and women, but men can experience this type of hair loss as early as their teens or early 20’s.

Men who suffer from male pattern baldness have actually inherited hair follicles that have a genetic sensitivity to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT shortens the lifespan of the affected hair follicles, and eventually stops the production of new follicles.

Alopecia Areata
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune skin disease that results in hair loss on the scalp and elsewhere on the body. It occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles, which is where hair growth begins. It is not permanent, but experts do not know the cause of the attack on the hair follicles.

Patients and doctors usually begin to notice when clumps of hair fall out, which causes small, round patches of visible and exposed scalp on top of the head. In about 90% of people with this condition, the hair may return within a few years.

Telogen Effluvium
Telogen Effluvium is a temporary condition that develops when there is a change in the number of hair follicles growing hair. It is caused by a large number of hairs entering the Telogen or “resting” phase at the same time, which causes the hair follicles to become dormant, and subsequent shedding and thinning occurs.

Causes for Hair Loss

Now that you know the types of hair loss that can occur in males, it’s important to understand the causes, and if there are any preventative measures one can take to help minimize hair loss.

There are many causes for hair loss, but luckily, in most cases, hair regrowth for men is possible.

Medical Conditions
Medical conditions, such as thyroid disease, lupus, diabetes, iron deficiency, eating disorders, and anemia can all cause hair loss.

While hair loss is a normal response under these circumstances, it’s important to understand the effects of other medical conditions on the body. Once the underlying problem is treated, in many cases, the hair will return.


A balanced diet is key to good health. If the body isn’t getting enough essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, then the body’s organs, tissues, and cells may not be functioning properly.

Protein, iron, zinc and biotin deficiencies have all been linked to hair loss in men. In addition to deficiencies, having too much of certain nutrients, such as vitamin A or carotenes can also cause premature male pattern baldness (Dermatol Ther. 2018).


Short-term, everyday stress, such as work or family life, is not going to cause your hair to fall out. A major life event though, or something that causes you to lose sleep at night or a change in appetite, could raise the level of stress hormones in your body. Hopefully this kind of stress will go away over time, and once it does, male hair growth will be possible again.


Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) shortens the growth cycle of your hair and increases the resting phase. Overtime, hair begins to grow less and becomes shorter until it stops growing altogether. Unfortunately, genes can make certain hair follicles (usually in the front and crown of the head) especially sensitive to this hormone. Furthermore, excess levels of testosterone often result in higher levels of DHT and therefore an increase in hair loss or baldness.


More than 95% of male hair loss is due to male pattern baldness, which is genetic. Contrary to popular belief, this gene can come from either parent. Unfortunately this type of hair loss is impossible to prevent, but there are men’s hair growth treatments that, when used early enough in the hair loss process, can help counteract the genetic trait.

One of the most difficult parts of hair loss is knowing the right product or products to use to help treat it. Read on to learn the best treatment to use for the type of hair loss you have.
