Brief History into Hair Loss
As long as men have been losing hair, there have been ‘cures’… and some have been truly incredible. Ancient Egyptians favoured sea crab bites. Ancient Greeks favoured a mix of pigeon droppings, horseradish and beetroot or nettles. In 19th century France, they rubbed on a cure that contained an extract of guinea pig and dog testicles. Be reassured that, as leaders in the research and development of hair loss treatments, we investigate many but utilise only the latest proven treatments.

There are a number of different types of hair loss – and almost as many different causes.
Dispelling Popular Myths

Not the case, there is no evidence to link wearing a hat to losing your hair. In order for a hat to cause hair loss, it would need to be tight enough to cut off circulation to the hair follicles.
