There are dozens of beard care products in the market that make tall claims about regrowing beard hair where none exists. These marketers often rope in tall, fair-complexioned and handsome models using their products and attribute their healthy and thick beard growth to their products. Many blindly believe the claims made by these products but will they help if you have a family history of poor beards or you do not have any beard at all due to hormonal issues? Should you trust these products? In this educational video, Dr John Watts – a noted dermatologist, trichologist and hair transplant surgeon in Hyderabad – demystifies everything about these products with scientific clarity. Dr John has successfully performed over 1900+ hair transplant procedures so far. Beard Care Starter Kits Explaining with a demo how companies marketing beard care products such as Bombay Shaving Company, Ustaraa & Mooch create hype to gain the trust of their customers, he unveiled the contents of the beard care starter kit of Bombay Shaving Company before the viewers. Their starter kit contains the following: a booklet that claims it is a four-step guide for beard growth, a bottle of stubble oil, a beard growth oil bottle, a beard serum bottle, beard shampoo and conditioner bottle, a box of moustache wax and a box of beard butter. “They are mostly beard care products that help in keeping the existing beard hair healthy. There do not seem to be any clinical studies showing how they helped a beardless man grow a beard if it is possible. Probably, some baby beard hair would grow but if anyone got benefited, please mention in the comments section,” said Dr John Watts. Scientific Analysis In his interaction with the viewers, Dr John said that such products can never claim that you can grow a new beard in a spot where there is no beard hair at all or if you have a family history of beardlessness or if you are dealing with testosterone hormonal issue. The Bombay Shaving Company’s Beard Growth Oil for instance says that it helps in strengthening the beard, stimulates blood circulation and prevents premature greying of the beard. While explaining the ingredients used in it, Dr John said that it lists some herbal extracts but there is no information about its effectiveness or clinical studies on how it solves beard hair growth problems. “Yes, you can gain some beard density when blood circulation is improved but no company’s products can help you grow a new beard if you have hormonal deficiency like Testosterone which controls the growth of beard hair follicles,” explained Dr John. He further explained that such medical issues need to be resolved with the help of a medical expert. “At the age of 14-15, puberty triggers hormonal changes. Here’s when one notices the growth of a beard. However, there are many factors involved in beard hair growth. There have to be follicles and both receptors & hormones must function if one of them is not active or not functioning properly, growth would be affected. Such products may be of little use in such conditions,” he informed. Conclusion While concluding his interaction, Dr John advises the viewers not to blindly jump to any conclusion on any product without carefully observing each claim scientifically. “If your hormonal issue is responsible for poor beard hair growth there are treatments. But, if medication is not working, the only solution is a beard hair transplant,” informed Dr John, while urging the viewers to share the video among their friends for awareness.
