"The Hair Replacement Revolution"

The truth is that there is no single cure for hair loss quite yet. However, there is some pretty exciting news--revolutionary drugs, high-tech surgical techniques, and hair cover-ups that are more natural looking than ever. For those experiencing hair loss, the problem lies in seeing through the hype of hair-replacement ads, and finding the product or technique that really works.

The Hair Replacement Revolution is an easy-to-understand guide that discusses each hair replacement option--its strengths, its weaknesses, and its breakthroughs. For each of the three basic approaches to hair replacement--drug therapies, artificial hair systems, and surgical procedures--the authors first explain the most popular techniques available, including the latest advances. The authors then discuss the pros and cons of each approach, and offer guidelines that allow readers to evaluate what is best for their own specific needs. Finally, and most important, Dr. Harris and Dr. Marritt highlight important questions that consumers should--and must--ask to avoid potentially dangerous and unexpected consequences. By separating the fact from the hype, and the safe from the questionable, The Hair Replacement Revolution provides an accurate picture of what you can actually expect-not what you can wish for.
