Medical Treatment for Hair Loss

The market for hair loss products can be overwhelming and confusing. Consumers watching late-night infomercials can spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on products that do not have good data to support their use. Likewise, they may purchase products containing effective ingredients, such as minoxidil, which have been supplemented with ineffective ingredients (such as horse-tail extract) in order to make them more appealing (and cost more!). The bottom line is for consumers to be wary and well-informed.
