Current approaches to the hair treatment have considerably changed. In the eighties the scientists managed to synthesize the 5-alpha reductase inhibitors and tried to use them for treatment. A number of side effects occurred due to their functioning on the systematic level, thus limiting their application. Recently the phyto-blockers of the mentioned enzyme were detected, and they are widely used in the given sphere.
At present, widely applicable, is the GARNI vegetable lotion against the hair loss and baldness produced by the “Armenpharm” company. The lotion is prepared according to an old unique recipe which comprises extracts of medical herbs from the ecologically pure zone of Armenia – nettle, juniper, hop, bur, wormwood and beggar-ticks.
