Experiencing accelerated hair loss?

If you’re a man who is experiencing accelerating hair loss, you may well be intrigued by adverts for shampoos that contain caffeine and promise thicker and fuller locks. Do these products actually work? At least one study suggests that caffeine has a “potent” effect in promoting hair growth under controlled laboratory conditions. More realistic tests have been less successful, however, showing only a moderate amount of re-growth. So try out a caffeine shampoo, but understand that your chances of regaining a full head of hair are limited.
