Hair Loss Treatments & Guarantees – It’s Not a Thing

by Y on May 5, 2021

I notice a lot of people want solid answers, definitive answers on hair loss treatments, varying from IF it will work for them, IF they shed from the treatment – will the hair come back, where on the head the benefit will be, if any.

Unfortunately, there are no guarantees with anything and there are no definitive answers. We can only know what works and doesn’t work for us. There is nothing that universally responds exactly the same in every person… And everything, EVERYTHING has risks.

Anything that can make your hair grow, can also make it shed. That is a hair loss treatment universal truth. I am not a doctor, but this is also more than just my opinion and most ethical doctors would agree this is true. It’s not advertised, because it’s not a sexy selling point to anything. True for Minoxidil, true for PRP, true for laser therapy… anything.

I believe to do best for ourselves, we need the most education possible, so that we can make informed decisions and go in eyes wide open with ANYTHING we choose, whether it’s a hair loss treatment or wig.

Ultimately, make the choice you can live with, that is what I have told people for 13 years, and that is my best advice when deciding whether or not to do ANYTHING for your hair loss. I look back on my own journey, and had I followed my own advice 22 years ago I would have done things very different.

I know many women want to hear other people’s experiences with treating their hair loss, so I’m asking for you to please consider sharing your experience on any or all of the below:

If you treated your hair loss, did you experience shedding? If so, do you feel you recovered from the shed? Do you regret the treatment? Do you feel the treatment provided you benefit? Share as much or as little as you like. Your share can help other women make informed decisions for themselves, and that is the best treatment we can provide to one another – support and education.

Sending much love to all!

I have been using Minoxidil for several years, but I always wonder if it is even helping. I would like to try eliminating it but am afraid of the shed. I would like to know if anyone going off Minoxidil has avoided a crazy shed by going off very gradually? And for those that stopped, did you have a big shed? Are you glad you went off, or do you regret it? Was the minoxidil helping?
