    Happy Head Company Overview 

    Happy Head is a telehealth dermatology platform that specializes in hair-loss treatments that contain a personalized combination of minoxidil, retinoic acid, hydrocortisone, and finasteride. 

    These treatments are formulated and shipped out fresh after each order, ensuring that no one receives a product that has been sitting on a shelf for weeks or months.

    Happy Head is also committed to creating a topical hair regrowth serum that doesn’t contain sticky gels or products that could change the texture and feel of hair. 

    The three ingredients that provide Happy Head’s hair regrowth power include finasteride, minoxidil, and retinoic acid.


    Finasteride is the main ingredient in Happy Head’s men’s hair regrowth formula. This topical hair-loss treatment has been shown to regrow hair and encourage thicker follicles. 


    Another common ingredient in hair regrowth products is minoxidil, a topical product that is available over the counter or by prescription.

    While most over-the-counter minoxidil products only contain around 5% of the active ingredient, Happy Head’s prescription-only formula contains 8% minoxidil for better results. 

    Retinoic Acid

    Another ingredient you’ll find in hair regrowth products is retinoic acid, which has also shown effective at regrowing hair when combined with minoxidil.


    Another ingredient you’ll find in Happy Head hair regrowth topical serums may include hydrocortisone. This ingredient is often used in treatments where hydrocortisone is injected into the scalp — though it has also been shown effective when used topically, too. 

    Is Happy Head Right For You?

    This telehealth hair regrowth startup has created a personalized formula that isn’t one-size-fits-all. 

    Happy Head is right for you if you are looking for a hair regrowth formula that: 

    • Is topical (not oral)
    • Has fewer systemic side effects
    • Can be customized to your hair-loss situation
    • Is made fresh when you order it
    • Doesn’t contain sticky gels or sprays
    • Can be used by both men and women
    • Offers free FedEx two-day shipping

    One of the best reasons to use Happy Head is its customizable formula — something we haven’t seen much of in the hair regrowth telehealth industry thus far.

    This company boasts two separate formulas for men’s and women’s hair regrowth products. 

    Happy Head Men’s Formula

    The Happy Head men’s formula contains a blend of Finasteride, Minoxidil, Retinoic Acid, and Hydrocortisone. 

    Each 60 ml bottle is made fresh each month after you order it (you won’t receive a product that has been sitting on the shelf for weeks) and contains the following percentages of prescription hair regrowth formula:

    Finasteride: 0.25%

    Minoxidil: 8%

    Retinoic Acid: 0.01%

    Hydrocortisone: 1%

    Happy Head Women’s Formula

    The women’s formula by Happy Head contains only Minoxidil, Retinoic Acid, and Hydrocortisone ( and not Finasteride). Though, women past the years of child-bearing may request a formula with Finasteride. 

    Like the men’s formula, the women’s formula is made each month at the time of order, so you can be sure you’re getting a fresh product. The women’s formula contains the following percentages of hair regrowth formula:

    Minoxidil: 6%

    Hydrocortisone: 1%

    Retinoic Acid: 0.01%

    Is Happy Head Credible?

    Yes! Happy Head only prescribes products containing two active ingredients (including finasteride and minoxidil), both of which have been approved by the FDA for hair loss. 

    Other ingredients in Happy Head’s products have been shown effective at treating this condition when used in conjunction with the active ingredients. 

    Healthcare Conditions Treated by Happy Head  

    Happy Head specializes in hair loss, balding, and thinning hair for both men and women. 

    How Happy Head Works

    It’s super easy to get treated for thinning hair and hair loss through Happy Head. Just follow the following steps to get a prescription and treatment for these conditions:

    Complete a Free Consultation 

    You don’t need to schedule an online consultation with a dermatologist at Happy Head. Simply fill out the online form and submit it for a dermatologist’s review. You’ll receive an email to confirm your order has been initiated and when your prescription is authorized.

    Get a Customized Prescription

    Your dermatologist or clinician will formulate a 60 ml bottle of topical hair thinning medication just for you! 

    Depending on your hair-loss needs and gender, your product will contain a combination of finasteride, minoxidil, retinoic acid, and hydrocortisone. 

    Receive Monthly Shipments

    Your hair thinning medication will be shipped directly to your door via free two-day FedEx shipping. If you’re happy with your prescription, don’t do anything! It will auto-refill each month.

    Free Continuous Support

    Does your prescription need tweaking? Got a question about your formula? You can feel free to reach out to Happy Head’s clinicians to get an adjustment to your prescription or to ask any hair regrowth question under the sun!

    Pricing: How Much Does Happy Head Cost? 

    Happy Head costs $79 per month for a 60 ml bottle of customized topical hair regrowth medication. 

    If you need to cancel, you can do so at any time in your Happy Head account portal. 

    Happy Head Does NOT treat Some Conditions 

    If you’re pregnant, considering becoming pregnant, or breastfeeding, you should not use finasteride. 

    Happy Head doesn’t prescribe finasteride for women who are pregnant or who may want to become pregnant in the future. 

    Men whose partners are planning on becoming pregnant or who are pregnant also cannot get a prescription for finasteride. 

    What Do We Think About Happy Head?

    We love that Happy Head has considered the fact that not all hair loss was created equal! This telehealth hair loss dermatologist specializes in customizable hair loss solutions for both men and women.

    We’re equally happy that this company is very transparent about its ingredients and the fact that products won’t sit on shelves for months before shipment.

    Of course, we’re also elated that Happy Head has considered the needs of both men and women with their customized products, making hair loss treatment more accessible for everyone.
