In the long history of alopecia
there has been an equally long history of "miracle" cures.
Ancient Egyptians developed a wide variety of treatments for baldness
such as a concoction of fat from a lion, a hippopotamus, a crocodile,
a goose, a snake, and ibex, to be liberally applied to bald skin!
Cleopatras' baldness cure for Julius Caesar was a compound of ground
up burnt domestic mice, horse teeth, bear grease, and deer. Maybe
it did not cure baldness but with that smelly decomposing compound
on your head people didn't hang around you long enough to notice how
much hair you had lost! Throughout history there has been no shortage
of people offering the ultimate cure and guaranteeing a luxuriant
head of hair, usually for a very special price!
From past times and the present day there are thousands of recipes
for baldness. Dogs' urine, spider webs, egg yolks, cow saliva, German
army horse salve, practically anything organic has been quoted as
a baldness cure at sometime, somewhere, by someone. Books with instructions
to improve hair growth also abound. These books may be bought at
considerable cost and frequently involve medication or physical
exercises such standing on you head to increase blood flow to the
scalp. Sometimes technical wizardry is employed such as the use
of suction pumps applied to the scalp to increase scalp blood flow.
Despite all these miracle cures there still seem to be an awful
lot of people walking around who have hair loss. That might seem
