Hair loss prevention is a battle as old as history itself. For millennia, man has sought ways to prevent hair loss and reverse hair loss when it has already occurred. Unfortunately, history has shown this to be a losing battle, until the past twenty years.
The oldest known hair loss prevention remedy was recorded by the Egyptians in 1553 BC. The remedy called for ingredients such as honey, iron oxide, red lead, snake fat, lion fat, crocodile and hippopotamus fat, onions, and alabaster. Being among the medical treatments found in the oldest known recorded medical journal shows that hair loss was a problem worth writing about since the earliest days of civilised man.
