Snake oil: Watch out for this one. There are no good products out there to restore hair. On the horizon are some exciting treatments. The right laser has promise but isn't proven yet. Give it a little more time. Stem cells from the fat injected into the scalp look like it hold promise. But watch out for snake oil claims.

Hair restoration: The rogaine (minoxidil) line of products is effective if used per directions. Consider seeking the care of a plastic surgeon offering hair restoration services for more information.
