Name: Benni

Question: There’s stories goin round tiwtter bout dandylion and burdock roots stoppin hair loss? what do you do wiv and where do i get sum?

DandelionAnswer: Hi, Benni. The old adage that you should ‘never believe what you read in the papers’ seems to be doubly applicable to social media. It’s not true, I’m afraid; this is one of a number of old hair loss myths that get re-circulated from time to time but are still untrue.

Whether it’s dandelion and burdock roots, argan oil, onion juice or even cow dung – despite what the rumours say, applying anything other than the clinically-proven male hair loss treatment, minoxidil to your scalp won’t do anything to stop genetic thinning. Minoxidil is one of only two products which is approved by both the UK’s MHRA and the FDA in America for treating hereditary hair loss in men, the other being the daily tablet, finasteride 1mg.

If you want to prevent male pattern hair loss you are better off visiting a specialist who can assess your level and pattern of shedding. They can then advise you accordingly as to the best hair loss treatments for your specific needs, and how to use them.
