Follow These Tips in Your Quest for the Suitable Hair Loss Remedy

In spite of the fact that the hair loss industry generates worldwide annual revenues of many billion US dollars, there seem to be only a few treatment options proven to deliver measurable and satisfactory results. One such option is hair surgery. Hair surgery alone is estimated to earn revenues of three billion dollars from the nearly 300,000 hair transplants that are expected to be performed around the world this year. In addition to that, there are billions of dollars to be made annually from the sales of diverse hair loss products. But how many of them really work? One would not be exaggerating to say that at least 90% of all non-surgical, hair loss treatments are a scam. Having said that, billions of dollars are spent every year wastefully on useless rubbish. One thing is wasting money and the other no less important thing is losing the battle against time while the hair loss continues, most likely becoming irreversible. This guide should help you identify a treatment which is not a waste of your time and money without trying it out first.

Once you have pinpointed the product you are considering trying, check the independent consumer reviews to get a basic understanding of its effectiveness. Do not use testimonials from the manufacturer’s website, they are most likely fake. It is best-advised to use references from large independent websites across the web such as Folica, Amazon, GreyHairLoss or RateItAll and crosscheck with reviews at various hair loss forums. Since it is difficult to recognise right away who is telling the truth and who is cheating, you will need to come back and check the arguments again here once you have done your research and gained a better understanding of the product and its individual components.

As a second step, you should look at the composition of the remedy you are considering buying. If you cannot find the list of individual, active ingredients, ask the manufacturer or his marketers to provide it. If they fail to provide you the required breakdown, consider it a scam. You need to verify the stories behind active substances and if you want to get a really good understanding of their science, you must verify references to clinical trials and peer studies. This is probably the most difficult and the most time-consuming part of this job.

The third thing you might need to do is to check the manufacturer’s claims. If they sound unsubstantiated and too good to be true or the before and after pictures appear unrealistic, raise your guard. And lastly, if the product you are looking at is promoted on the web, check on the site and in the whois directory who is behind the website promoting it. If the name and the address of the owner is hidden behind a WHOIS guard, apply a deep discount to your valuation. Any person or company that truly believes in its product will be proud to have its name and address attached to that product.

Although these tips may not be exhaustive, they should guide you in estimating the potential of the hair loss product you are considering to buy and might save you frustration with wasting time and money on useless rubbish. If you have tried certain hair regrowth products already and want to share you experiences, there are several useful places where you can have your word spread and heard by other hair loss suffers, such as the aforementioned Amazon, Folica, RateItAll and GreyHairLoss, to name just a few.
