Why is there no cure for hair loss?

There is currently no cure because hair loss is part of a complex interconnected system in the body that is not completely understood. We understand that hormones like dihydrotestosterone (DHT) play a major role in hair loss but it’s not as simple as tweaking a person’s hormones to achieve a full head of hair.

The most common treatment for hair loss, minoxidil, was an accidental innovation in the field of hair loss treatment. While discovering the cure for hair loss would be exciting news for many, for now, we have to work with the available treatments, which can still be very effective at keeping hair loss at bay. However, with both, the results only last as long as the treatment is being used.
