The real impact of hair loss
Hair loss happens. We’re here to help.
Whether it’s genetics, hormones, or stress-related hair loss, your treatment is based on decades of dermatology research, so you know you’re getting proven results from tried-and-true medications.
Treatments for every stage
1 daily capsule
The active ingredient in this pill decreases testosterone production which can cause hair thinning. This gives follicles a better chance of staying active while increasing the total number of hairs actively growing during each hair cycle. This active ingredient has been used to treat female pattern hair loss for more than 20 years3, and stops the progression of hair loss in over 90% of women.4
1 daily capsule or topical foam
This treatment comes as a foam or pill containing an active ingredient that promotes blood flow to the scalp, stimulating hair into a ‘growth’ phase. This increases hair growth, thickens hair follicles, and lengthens the period of hair growth with a shorter ‘resting’ phase. Topically, this active ingredient has been shown to stop hair loss or stimulate hair regrowth in approximately 60% of women with female pattern hair loss.5
1 daily capsule
This treatment combines the best of the Strengthen and Regrow treatments and has been proven to reduce hair shedding at 3 months and increase hair density at 6 months.6

Treat hair loss your way
We've got answers brought to you by Software's hair experts
Hair loss may present as the first symptom of a host of underlying or contributing medical and psychiatric conditions. The most common causes of hair loss in women include a family history of female pattern hair loss, stress, increasing age, hormonal changes including menopause and postpartum changes and smoking.
When you start prescription hair loss treatment, you may experience a temporary increase in hair shedding in the first few weeks as your hair follicles adjust. This is only temporary and a sign that the treatment is taking effect, and is colloquially known as the ‘dread shed’. Other side effects of Software’s female hair loss treatment vary depending on your medical history and lifestyle, so speak to your doctor on Software about how you can manage side effects.
What constitutes ‘normal’ hair loss can vary person to person – especially for women – but 50-100 strands per day is considered a ‘standard’ amount of hair loss per day. However, 40% of women lose extra hair every day because of the way it is styled, and women are more likely than men to experience periods of increased hair shedding due to hormonal changes like pregnancy and menopause.
Female pattern hair loss is a similar condition to male pattern baldness, but hair loss and thinning follow a different pattern. Female pattern hair loss starts at the part line, sometimes appearing all over the head, and hair at the temples may also recede.
Without treatment, female pattern hair loss will continue. Software’s treatments stop further progression and can stimulate regrowth, so while hair loss is not permanently reversible, treatments can minimise hair thinning, reduce shedding and maintain hair growth.
Due to Australian Therapeutic Goods regulations, we are unable to list prescription treatments by name. However, we can say that the active ingredients in all of Software’s treatments have been used to treat female pattern hair loss for more than 20 years.
If you’d like to learn more about which treatment is right for you, speak to a doctor on Software’s platform.
Yes, postpartum hair loss is a condition many new mothers experience with symptoms including excessive shedding, thinning hair and slower hair growth. It's sometimes called postpartum alopecia, and in many cases, is only temporary. If you are breastfeeding, please speak to a doctor about potential treatment options.
