I assume that there is nothing close to a cure for hair loss

Customer Question

Hello I assume that there is nothing close to a cure for hair loss because it'd be the holy grail for middle aged men and it would be the biggest news topic of all time instead of laughable snake oil schemes on infomercials or at hair salons. Is this about right?

My hair started falling out when I was about 25. there was no pattern. It just started getting really fine and thin all over and progressed until I was hospitalized with liver failure and malnutrition. After treatment I got healthy and started growing baby hair and it seemed to begin growing out but I think it's stopped. My blood tests about three months ago were perfect so I don't believe it's nutritional. I'm 40 now.
