Treatments With Low Success
Thousands of products for baldness are advertised on TV and on the Internet. They claim to make hair regrow, or simply to stop further loss. Most charge high prices and use Minoxidil, which can be purchased over-the-counter in your local pharmacy for approximately $10.
Other products have not been assessed by proper research studies. They aim to persuade the consumer with a ‘true life’ success story. Since hair loss is often noticeable for a month or two and then stops for a few months it is easy to imagine that the product is having an effect. Without a reputable research study, the effectiveness and safety are unknown. Be sure to use treatments that have been FDA approved for your own safety.
