Hi, Doctor Rassman, I’m a 25 year old female, I found another colombian product: Sabiway shampoo for hair loss it is intended also in cancer patients I would like to know any expert information on this product. the website where it is been sold is: http://laboratoriosabiway.8m.com/
Please I need to know if this product can be good for this problem!!!! I think that maybe can help me.
I am having a tough time with this site. They offer an English translation, but it is very poorly worded and difficult to understand. From the looks of it, this is just a fungus treatment shampoo. I don’t see anything in it that would regrow hair for a person with genetic hair loss. You can try it, but I doubt it’ll do much good (unless you have fungal problems). They also claim to regrow hair for alopecia areata sufferers, and that right there explains why a product like this will never legally be sold in the US. The FDA would be all over it, because you can’t make impossible claims (like being able to regrow hair for those with alopecia areata) without backing it up with proof. It sounds very misleading and entirely untrue.
Plus, the fact that they use a free website host and a terribly amateur website makes me even more skeptical. It doesn’t look professional, and I can’t see how anyone would take it seriously (at least from a marketing perspective). But taking that out of the equation, common sense tells me that if this fancy shampoo worked like they said it did, it would be known worldwide… particularly if it’s been sold for the nearly 20 years that their website says. My guess is that it won’t do much more than any other anti-fungal shampoo out there.
