- Are you sick of reading news articles every year with quotes from various experts proclaiming that hair loss will be cured “in five years”? I have been reading such claims for over a decade now. In fact, I am very certain that some experts who have recently stated that the cure for baldness will be here within five years said exactly the same thing ten years ago!
- Are you sick off the fact that to date, there are only two moderately effective government approved treatments for hair loss: Finasteride (Propecia) and Minoxidil (Rogaine)? Neither will usually regrow hair on completely bald areas of your scalp, and both often lose effectiveness after some years. That is if you were even among the lucky ones who ever saw great results with no side effects in the first place. Moreover, neither product will regrow lengthy robust hair in most people.
- Are you sick of all the con-men successfully selling untested unapproved miracle scam products to gullible customers in this twisted industry?
If you agree with the above points, you will enjoy visiting this blog. Every post I write will cover new or very interesting subjects and developments in the science of hair loss and hair restoration. I will also usually offer my own detailed analysis.
Being a long-time hair loss sufferer who does not want to shave his head, I am hoping to finally see a real solution for hair loss in the near future.
Based on the impressive scientific, medical and technological developments I have seen or read about in the first decade of this new 21st century (especially since starting this blog in 2013), I believe that at least some semblance of a hair loss cure should be here by the end of 2020. This cure might end up entailing a combination of drugs and injections; and it might end up requiring repetitive maintenance visits (although I really hope not).
Research on hair loss treatments as of 2018 has been moving along rapidly, and a number of companies are moving to later stage clinical trials for their products as we speak.
Note that this is all my personal opinion and forecast and please read the below disclaimer.
I am not employed in the hair loss industry, am not a doctor, and am not an expert in biology or medicine. All of my opinions should be taken with a grain of salt. Any hair loss treatment related decision that you make should only be taken after consultation with a physician such as a dermatologist and should definitely not be based on my opinions and conclusions. Moreover, you should read many other hair loss blogs and forums out there rather than just trust the opinions of one blog author such as myself.

I accept ads from numerous sources, including: rotating ones and/or affiliate ones from Google Adsense and Amazon; ads from “natural” product vendors that almost never grow new hair; hair transplant ads; laser device ads; platelet-rich plasma (PRP) ads; and more. This does not mean that I endorse any products or procedures that are in those ads. In almost all cases, I have never tried those products or procedures on myself. Some could be unsafe and some vendors could be unreliable. Unfortunately, without advertising income, I can never devote enough time (often 20 hours in a week) to this blog, so I accept most ads when someone approaches me with an offer. You should always do your own detailed research on hair growth products that you are considering purchasing.
