Ok, so I'm reading The Daily Mail newspaper, and an article in particular pops up which sparks my interest. The title reads 'A New Hair Loss Cure Claims a 100 per cent Success Rate', and the cure they are referring to is the latest hair product on the market, Regrowz.
Now, I have to admit, the title certainly got me intrigued, for when a company states the stat 100 per cent, I'm sure most balding guys out there would be keen to gain a better understanding of what this product is all about. You can never be entirely sure of what you read when it is in a magazine or newspaper, as you never know if the company have paid the publisher to have their brand featured, so after skimming through the article, I quickly went online to the Regrowz website to get a clear understanding of their product and how it can potentially 'cure' hair loss.
Regrowz has two products which they like to refer to as 'treatments'. Both products work in conjunction with each other to combat the balding scalp in men. The products consist of a Scalp Stimulant and a Restoration Serum. Now, already I see this as a red flag, because the only topical formula that has been FDA approved for treating hair loss is Minoxidil. Regrowz do not contain Minoxidil, so God only knows how these products can be referred to as cures. That would surely go against the advertising trading standards laws, right?
This is a statement taken from the Regrowz website: 'We've created a scalp stimulant and restoration serum clinically proven to increase hair volume and reduce hair loss in 100% of subjects'.
I have highlighted in red the 100 per cent success claim that this company has clearly stated on their website. I must admit, I am very shocked that the claim was indeed made by this brand, as we all know too well how publishers can exaggerate things in order to sell papers. But, there's no hiding from it, it's there, legally or not, in black and white.
So, let's delve a bit deeper into this unique formula and see what the ingredients have to offer. If you're a regular reader of this blog, you'll know that I have become a bit of an expert on ingredients, and even though I am not a scientist or a doctor, I think you can trust my judgement when it comes to this sort of thing.
Listed below are the full ingredients for the two Regrowz products:
Restoration Serum: Cocos Nucifera Oil, Murraya Koenigii Stem Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Emblica Officinalis Fruit, Citrus Limon, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Sesamum Indicum Seed Oil, Allium Cepa Bulb Extract, Trigonella Foenum-Graecum Seed Powder, Crataegus Laevigata, Rosa Centifolia Flower, Acorus Calamus, Terminalia Catappa Extract, Trigonella Foenum Graecum, Berberis Lycium, Adhatoda Vasica, Cuscuta Reflexa, Cuminum Cyminum Fruit Oil, Ocimum Sanctum Ext
Scalp Stimulant: Aqua, Allium Cepa Bulb Extract, Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Benzoic Acid, Dehydroacetic Acid, Ethylhexylglycerin
After looking through this list of ingredients, honestly, there is nothing to suggest in any way shape or form that this could be some revolutionary cure for hair loss. They do have beneficiary properties of which can be great for skin care, but we must remember that skin and hair are two completely separate parts of the body that function of different ways. What I don't understand is why this product is specifically made for men? I do find it hard to trust products that are single-gender specified. Surely a product that works to regrow hair in men would work for women too, right? After all, hair is hair.
I would be very surprised if this formula actually works. Check out the images below, which I have taken from their website.
As you can see from the before and after shots, there is very little, if any, difference after three months of use. To me, it just looks like the chap has brushed his hair over the parts he hasn't got hair to give the appearance of new hair growth. Now, if you're completely bald, like the man in these photos, are these images going to encourage you to spend over £100 to get the same results? Nah, I didn't think so.
The thing is, I do believe there are some great products out there that can help slow down and stop hair loss, but there aren't products or treatments that can reverse complete baldness, like the man in the images. If there was a product out there that could literally grow a full head of hair from nothing, then that would be a genuine 'cure'. This, ladies and gentleman, is NOT a cure for hair loss and you can bet you bottom dollar I will NOT be investing my hard earned cash on this garbage. This, to me, is nothing more that a scam.
