Americans spend about 4 billion dollars a year trying to treat their hair loss problems. But most of the products being sold are absolutely worthless. Rogaine and Propecia are exceptions to this, but even with these two relatively effective drugs, the effectiveness is often overstated in the advertising. And the potential side effects are often understated.
