Huffington Post: Banish Baldness in 2014
If you were judging by news headlines, you'd think we cured baldness in 2013. This past October, after scientists announced they successfully grew human hair in the laboratory, many media outlets misleadingly reported it as a "miracle cure" and quite possibly the end of baldness. But the reality is far different -- hair "cloning", gene therapy and other wonder treatments are still not ready for primetime -- and potentially a long way away from becoming available at your local doctor's office.
But though we've yet to discover a "cure" for baldness, that doesn't mean there aren't breakthrough treatments out there -- and 2014 could be a banner year for several important new hair loss treatments.
To learn more about four key treatments that could become more widely available to you this year, check out my Huffington Post column, here.
