Hair thinning is caused by progressive destruction of hair roots during a process called miniaturisation. This can be prevented with medicines but it can not be reversed. Therefore, medicines are useful to stabilise the hair loss but can not grow new hair. It can however cause sleeping hair roots to give hair, which may be confused with new hair growth by some.
