“Something I hate about the hair market” from Reddit

Every once in a while, once a month, I simply search “hairloss treatments” to see if anything new happened, or maybe a new treatment, but all I get is recent articles like “does ___ cause hairloss?” “can vitamins help with hairloss?” “can saw palmetto halt hairloss?” Bull**** articles like these make me pissed off, not because of the articles themselves, but because they are repetitive articles that i see every month when I search this shit. What happened to Breezula? WAY-1001? Guess we’ll never have a good safe, non-fearing treatment. Guess everything comes with a price.

Back in the 1980s, there was a ‘product’ called the Helsinki Hair Growth Forumlae that may have been the first modern product claimed for the hair growth pitch to hit the US market for magic hair growth cures. As the first, it sold like ‘hotcakes’ and it took more than 10 years for it to lose its unique market position because the FDA dinged them for claims that could not be proven. I look them up, and they are still selling hair products, just no magic claims.
If you look at newspaper in the late 1800s and early 1900s, you will see a lot of products selling cures for hair loss like magnetic hats that you wear at home. People never liked the idea of being bald so they easily reached out to anything that was offered. Today, with the internet, we have the ability to discern the difference between fact and fiction, but many people have realities that they want to believe and will often buy into anything that sounds ‘reasonable’ with low risk and possibly low cost solutions for hair loss.
There are now many doctors who have become the salesmen for sometimes shady cures, but because they wear a white coat, or have the MD after their name, they become believable. I have to be careful how much I say about the doctors who are making promises that they can’t deliver on but I can tell you, the readership, ‘Let the Buyer Beware’ as there is no fast, cheap fix for hair loss that I know of.
