The never-ending pursuit of trying to find a remedy to assist with hair loss can drive men to, well… lose their hair. Among the thousands of products and claims on the market, many aren’t backed by a comprehensive outlook and solid science, but thanks to the team at &Bam, there now is a haircare option dedicated specifically to helping thicken and improving hair growth.
So, what makes &Bam different? Well, the team, made up of men who have experienced hair loss and hair growth issues, along with renowned biochemists and doctors, take a holistic approach to treating hair loss and formulate a plan based on your needs, rather than a one-size-fits-all strategy.
When signing up with &Bam’s subscription service, you’ll fill out an online consultation process, which includes your lifestyle info, medical history, and ideal treatment plan (this takes about 15 – 20 minutes). Once you finish the questionnaire, there is a once-off cost of R150 for the doctors’ consultation (which is refunded if you’re not suitable for &Bam). You’ll be contacted by a doctor within 24 hours of your payment to discuss your answers and your personalised treatment recommendation.
Once the doctor has approved you for treatment, you’ll receive an email with a link to purchase your recommended hair loss treatment plan. You have the option to pay monthly or quarterly, and again, &Bam uses a subscription-based service to ensure you receive a continuous and regular supply of treatment every 3-months. “When it comes to treating hair loss, consistency is key – stopping treatment for even a short period of time can result in an increase in hair shedding and all your hard-earned gains will be lost,” explains &Bam.
Our doctors will recommend a follow-up plan based on your baseline health and medical history to ensure that our treatment continues to be the right method for you and to adjust it in accordance with any new or evolving health concerns that may occur during the treatment process.
“There are no silver bullets when it comes to treating hair loss and anybody promising you a quick-fix (outside of a hair transplant) is likely one of the proverbial snake-oil salesmen the hair loss industry is rife with,” says &Bam. “Like the tortoise and the hare, slow and steady wins the race and a minimum treatment period of 6 – 12 months should be anticipated by anyone wishing to see concrete results.”
Personalised treatments start from around R419 per month, with your own personal recommendation from the doctors obviously adjusting the price accordingly. There are also non-prescription hair-loss fighting products available, including a daily shampoo (R270) and conditioner (R270).
