Hair Loss Products Guarantees - Are They Worthy Enough To Be Used?

There are numerous hair loss claims in the marketplace and one of the most interesting relates to the guarantee offered by some products and treatments. Be careful about guarantees and what it is that you actually get for your money. Is the product or treatment guaranteed to work all the time for every type of hair loss? The only treatment that works every time is surgery and even then, the recipient is not always totally satisfied with the results. There are even hair growth products for kids now which amazed me how advance the time now. There are two pharmaceutical drugs on the market for hair problems and the original manufacturers of these products, minoxidil and finasteride would never say that these products are effective for all types of loss in all cases. They do say for instance, 9 out of 10 users had visible results and the product should only be used to treat hereditary loss. Other claims which are substantiated are that the product reduces the levels of dihydrotestosterone, DHT, which can reduce the loss and stimulate hair growth. These products are not always recommended for women and in fact can be contraindicated, so there is definitely no claim for success in all types. There are also laser devices which have been shown, in clinical trials to be effective for treating hereditary hair loss. The study authors concluded that the product, a laser comb was effective in the treatment of Androgenetic Alopecia, which is more commonly referred to as male pattern baldness. The manufacturers do not claim that the product works for all types of hair loss in all cases. Saw palmetto, an herbal preparation was originally used in traditional medicine for benign prostatic hyperplasia, BPH, in elderly men. The extract is said to interfere in the production of DHT in the body and therefore have an effect on reduced hair growth. In one study on saw palmetto for hair loss, 60% of the men taking it said they had improved hair growth after using it for 5 months. In a clinical trial conducted in the 90's, ingredients from marine fish were shown to significantly decrease hair loss in more than 70% of users over a 6 month period. The trial participants were experiencing Androgenetic alopecia. It is clear that products with these ingredients are not guaranteed to work in all types of hair loss in all cases. When you visit a hair site and it screams "guarantee" at you check closely what it is guaranteeing. Some say that if you are not completely satisfied that you can return any unused and unopened packs. How can you try it and take advantage of the guarantee if the only way to get a refund is to not use it? Another will offer the guarantee if it is your first order only, but for any hair loss product you will need to use it for 3 to 6 months as you hair can be slow to respond.
