Finding the best hair loss treatment for you takes time and due diligence in learning to discriminate hype from reality.
Thanks to the dedicated patient and physician expert members of our hair loss discussion forum and websites, differentiating fact from fiction and learning what really works to treat baldness is easy.
Below we’ve collected and provided important tips to help you discover which hair loss treatments really work and which ones don’t.
Read the Fine Print: At best, most advertising oversells the benefits of a product appealing to a person’s emotions and desires. You want your hair back and a certain product promises to deliver it. But if you look close enough, you’ll see fine print such as “Results not typical” or “Results will vary”. Be cautious not to be lured by fancy slogans and big promises. Take your time to read the fine print and research each hair loss product on your own.
If It’s Too Good to be True, It Probably Is: We live in a “Buyer Beware” world thus, it’s important not to believe everything you read and hear. If it’s too good to be true, it probably is. Therefore, much like doing a book report or term paper, research using multiple sources and compare and contrast your findings. This will help you draw more accurate conclusions on which products may help restore your hair and which ones won’t.
Where’s the Proof? Too many times, hair restoration companies make big promises but seldom deliver. That’s why we advise researching all hair loss products you are considering and looking for evidence of success beyond promotional websites. Our discussion forum includes thousands of balding men and women worldwide providing their real experiences and opinions on dozens of hair loss treatments.
