Hair Loss

I would like to know if any of the hair products on the shelves have any beneficial, visible effects on hereditary hair loss. Also, how would you know if hair loss is due to hereditary factors?

Hi Zelia, thank you for the question.

Unfortunately there are no products that will reverse or have a beneficial effect on hair loss; typically hereditary hair loss is directly linked to someone in your family. Your best option would be to consult a dermatologist who can examine the scalp and take some blood tests to ensure that there are no medical causes for the hair loss.

The question was how do you know if your hair loss is hereditary or not and the question was not answered...
