• Matthew McConaughey’s Hair Loss Turn Around

    From TMZ to About.com, the speculation continues concerning Matthew McConaughey’s astonishing hair loss turn around. How can a guy who had such significant hair loss bounce back with what appears to be a completely full head of hair?

    Publicly McConaughey claims to have used a “patented” all natural hair loss treatment program, but experts in the field speculate that is unlikely.

    Last night Spencer Kobren and the guys from BTT  discussed what some believe to be the 8th wonder of the world…Matthew McConaughey’s hair.

  • New Hope For Hair Loss?

    Last week, Dr. Gail Naughton, CEO of Histrogen, Inc. a regenerative medicine company that develops solutions based on the products of  newborn fibroblasts grown under embryonic conditions, addressed attendees at the 4th Annual Stem Cell Summit in New York. Dr. Naughton presented preliminary mid-trial results from Histrogen’s first human clinical evaluation of  it’s promising breakthrough hair loss product ReGenica™

    Histrogen’s clinical trial was primarily designed to assess the safety of its product over a five-month period by using a placebo-controlled, randomized study.  Its second objective was to examine ReGenica’s efficiency.

    At the 12-week scheduled evaluation point, the company was pleased to announce that they not only found no adverse reactions of ReGenica but also that they could honestly say that they were able to see more hair, thicker hair shafts, and what appeared to be the growth of completely new hair follicles on a siggnificant percentage of  the test subjects who were treated with ReGenica.

    ReGenica is a liquid formula that is the first naturally stabilized and bioactive formulation of wnt proteins and natural cofactors, which are thought to act in the formation of new hair follicles. The trial is currently ongoing, and Histogen expects to release full results from this first clinical study in the first half of 2009.

  • What Is Your Opinion of Kevis Hair Rejuvenation, Inc. ?

    What is your opinion of Kevis Hair Rejuvenation, Inc. I have considered buying this product, is it just a snake oil?

    Thank You,
    – – – – – – – – –

    Dear Shayne,

    At this point there is no conclusive evidence, that I am aware of, that shows Kevis to be an effective treatment for the prevention and treatment of hair loss. It’s important that hair loss consumers understand that there are only two FDA approved medications to treat hair loss, and that hair loss is indeed a medical condition that needs to be addressed medically. This means that you should see a doctor when seeking effective treatment for this condition.

    Simple rule of thumb: If the product is not FDA approved or recommended by the the American Hair Loss Association stay clear.

    Hope this helps.
