I was just wondering if you had any information on Billy Jealousy’s new product, Hair Raiser. It claims to regrow lost hair and recently won an FHM grooming award.
It is said to contain Methyl nicotinate and 2 DHT blockers (Swertia and Licorice Extract). Their website says “Hair Raiser takes about 4 months of every day use to experience the beginning growth of terminal hair. Regrowth will not be experienced if hair follicle has been dead for more than 10 years. Hair Raiser was created by world renowned bio-chemist C. Sanders.“
I am not familiar C. Sanders, the bio-chemist — but I am familiar with Colonel Sanders, the purveyor of original recipe and extra crispy fried chicken. Kidding aside, if you have been following this blog, it has always been stressed that it is a â€œbuyer bewareâ€ market. Anyone can claim effects of a cream/lotion/potion. What strikes me is that there is a 1989 U.S. Supreme Court decision preventing these products being advertised or sold in the U.S., yet these types of claims are made and products are sold every day. There are only 2 FDA approved medications to treat male pattern baldness: (1) topical minoxidil (such as Rogaine) and (2) oral finasteride (Propecia). Since Propecia is still protected under patent, I suspect this Hair Raiser product contains Minoxidil as one of the ingredients, if it actually does do anything for your lost hair.
More information on this product can probably be found at the official site, BillyJealousy.com.
