Hair restoration is the second-hardest topic to find reliable info for on the internet (the first is…well, treatment for another region). Between the countless spam emails, scam medical treatments and really bad toupees, it’s hard to separate the good from the crap. But here are some general tips: With the exception of FDA-approved medications (which are listed below) avoid any site that is trying to sell you something – you can’t trust them. Also, keep in mind there is NO miracle cure for baldness. If there was, you wouldn’t need this guide.

There are only two FDA-approved drugs for hair treatment, and Propecia is one of them. You need a prescription for it, and its long-term side-effects are still unknown. It has also been known to cause sexual side-effects in a small percentage of users – which can be case of the cure being worse than the disease.

The only other FDA-approved drug for hair loss, Rogaine has been around since the 80s, and is proven to help stop thinning hair. I had a roommate in college that used this though, and all it gave him was a layer of peach-fuzz over his bald head. So I guess results may vary.


American Hair Loss Council
If you really are serious about getting back your manly ‘fro, then you should probably consult a hair loss expert, and not your regular doctor. The American Hair Loss Council’s homepage is a good place to get some basic info, and they have a state-by-state directory of their members.

American Hair Research Society
Another reputable medical site discussing hair loss and some viable solutions. They have detailed info on several options, including surgery and a good FAQ that’ll probably answer most of your questions.
