Well, before we get into the nuts and the bolts of my reviews
of various solutions, I must say that the search for a hair
loss remedy is much like the search for a quick and easy
weight loss solution - there are lots of options, lots of
opinions, and lots of scams.
So let's try to steer clear of the scams, base things on
reliable authorities, and find you something good... or
at least not waste your money.
One of the most famous, of course, is the Hair Club for Men
and Women. They say that since
1976, Hair Club has been the
#1 Alternative Hair Loss Remedy in America! And we know that
anything hair related that survived the 1970's must be robust,
because that was a tough time for hair. Their
home page is also important to view because, as we know, balding
people are not allowed to make out in front of fireplaces until
they fix their hair problems. (Joking aside- I'm filtering out
the bad hair loss remedy websites and only showing you good ones).
Don't get them wrong- their hair loss treatment is not (as the
photo on this page would suggest) to just use your sexy look
6 hours a day until your hair grows back. That same page talks
hair loss remedies, gives 3 hair suggestions, and discusses hair
transplantation and medications.
In my own tradition, Chinese medicine, the herb he
shou wu (pronounced heh show woo; aka polygonum) is said to
be good for hair loss and prematurely graying hair. But I'd fully
investigate the medical options below first, and if I tried he
shou wu, it would be with a figurative grain a salt.
Medical Hair Loss Remedies and Info:
most comprehensive and authoritative portal site for hair loss
medicine is on MedLinePlus. For example, they have a treatment
related link to the American
Society for Dermatologic Surgery.
Check out FamilyDoctor.org for the medical
information on hair loss, and credible hair loss remedies.
You can view free
webcasts from doctors about hair loss and what
really works as a hair loss remedy at Hair Loss Central.
And that should be plenty to give you an idea of what will really
work as a hair loss remedy. Let me just give you a couple of pointers
about avoiding scams on the internet before you go:
- Beware sites that display loads of ads, especially with pictures
and constantly changing images
- Always considering the authority/expertise of the source -
what science are they referring to? How many credible, educated
doctors support a particular hair loss remedy?
