Although few anti-balding solutions actually work, there are a couple that do. Rogaine is one of them. This foam or lotion, also called minoxidil, is effective for about 30-50 percent of the men who try it.

It seems to work by making hair follicles bigger and stimulating hair growth, although scientists aren't entirely sure how.
