The beauty and wellness market is booming and a recent trend that seems to have been around since the 1950s is ‘dog hair gel.’
This new, non-dandruff, nonetalized hair gel is basically what you’d get at a salon with a faux-fur coat and a full-body groomer.
This is the trend that has become synonymous with the ‘hair of your dreams’ with brands like L’Oreal and Dove touting the ‘new trend’ and claiming that their products are the new ‘treatments’ to combat the dreaded ‘fibroids.’
But is the hair gel real?
And does it really do anything for you?
This is where the research comes in.
The problem is that the product claims to remove all the ‘old-time’ blemishes that make your hair look dull.
The claim is made that the gel will “rejuvenate” your hair and it’s actually a myth.
According to dermatologist Dr. Jennifer Wysocki, a registered dietician, she was one of the first dermatologists to notice the hair loss that these products are supposedly causing, and she even started to research the products on her own website.
Wysicki said, “I have been trying to see if there are any studies that actually show that these are actually helping my patients.
There’s been a lot of anecdotal reports from women who are using this product to reduce their hair loss, but I’m not going to go into the details of those studies because it’s too big of a topic for this blog.”
She added that some women are using the products in order to help them stop their hair growing.
Wystkiewicz went on to say that “these claims are not based on scientific data or any other scientific studies, and they’re not backed up by any clinical data.”
She also noted that she has not seen any studies where women using the gel have experienced any hair loss.
“I’ve seen a lot more anecdotal anecdotal reports that women are having hair loss on top of their scalp, but the studies that I’ve seen have not been published, and so I don’t know if that’s true or not.”
This has left many skeptical about the claims.
“The beauty and hair products are just a marketing ploy to get people to purchase them, and the claims are just marketing tricks,” said Dr. Scott Wills, a hair and makeup stylist and founder of The Beardology Network.
He added that many women are buying products like this thinking that they’ll be able to control their hair and feel good.
But, it’s not really about the hair, it is about the products.
“These products are not helping the hair or any of that.
They are actually making it worse,” he said.
“You’re putting these chemicals in your hair that you can’t get rid of.”
Dr. Wills said that the hair of some women with the product are also suffering from a condition called dry scalp syndrome.
The condition is characterized by dry hair that often looks like a wet mess.
Dry scalp syndrome is a type of hair loss caused by a lack of nutrients, which causes the hair to grow and become more brittle.
Wyssicki, however, said that this condition can be cured by washing the hair with soap and water and then allowing it to dry.
She also said that these hair products also contain artificial ingredients that can interfere with the hair follicles.
These ingredients can damage the hair and cause it to become brittle and unkempt.
The real problem, according to Wyskowski, is that they’re also causing hair loss to happen more often.
According a study from the American Academy of Dermatology, in 2016, hair loss rates rose from 4 percent to 15 percent among women using “hair gel.”
It is important to note that there is no evidence that this gel helps people with dry scalp.
Wylicki told ABC News that the claims about the ‘natural’ products are based on the science of hair growth and growth hormone.
“There are a lot [of studies] that show that this stuff is not actually doing anything to address the condition that we have, and that’s the whole issue with the claims that it’s going to help,” she said.
Wymacki also pointed out that hair gel has a “long history of being used in the hair care industry,” and she added that hair products that are used to treat hair loss are also used to control hair growth in the general population.
“If there’s a problem with the products that you use to control the growth of your hair, that’s not something you’re going to be able fix overnight,” Wyskiewicz added.
“We are not talking about a new treatment for dry scalp, we’re talking about treating hair loss.”
Wysko said that there are other options that women can try, including buying products that treat conditions like hay fever and colds.
“In my experience, people who are not
