If you suffer from hair loss or full-fledged hair thinning, you know that the endless rows of shampoo, conditioner, topical treatments and supplements both online and in-store don’t always do much to deliver on their promises of thicker, fuller, strands. We, like 40 percent of Americans who experience hair loss by the time they celebrate their 40th birthdays, have been there, so when jaw-dropping transformations like the one below credit a shampoo-and-conditioner based system for their results, we listen.
With its roots deep in Copenhagen (additional locations are now in Norway, Germany, Dubai, and now stateside in Tampa and Los Angeles), the Harklinikken Hair Regrowth Clinic has delivered results impressive enough to create waiting lists that span multiple continents solely by word-of-mouth advertising for the past 20 years. Aside from its brick-and-mortar clinics, the brand also has an online virtual clinic (which, according to the brand, is the first-ever virtual hair-loss clinic with advanced capabilities to diagnose and treat hair loss) to treat patients from afar—clients can send update photos privately, undergo remote examinations and discuss any concerns—should the staff determine they are proper candidates.
So what does this online clinic mean for you and your hair loss? Unless you’re based in one of the aforementioned locations, it’s your one-stop-shop to end thinning for good. Once a hair specialist determines Harklinikken can help your particular case—an online assessment, quick questionnaire and video conference call with a staff member will let you both know—your customized hair-growth products are created. Though your exact product regimen may differ based on your particular needs, every client receives their own personalized Hair Extract. Burdock Root Extract is the main component of the formula, however, other ingredients included in the bottle differ, as they’re based on the multiple factors that contribute to each patient’s hair loss (age, gender, type of hair loss, if it’s hereditary, degree of hair loss, etc.) and get updated throughout the course of treatment to ensure the exact reasons for hair loss are targeted at all times.
Because you might think this is all too good to be true (we don’t blame you), we wanted to hear a client’s side of the experience. The 25-year-old woman above was assigned a custom regimen of Harklinikken shampoos and conditioners, as well as the personalized Hair Extract that was constantly updated to align with her progress throughout eight months of treatment. Here is her story:
“My hairbrush was always filled with hair! It all started when I was about 20 and I noticed that my hair was so thin that you could always see my scalp, no matter how I wore it. It wasn’t long before I started to get feedback from family and friends; comments like ‘Why is your hair so thin? Have you seen a doctor about it?’ Finally, I went to the doctor and had countless blood tests taken. When the blood tests did not show anything significant, I was referred to one specialist after another, only to find out that they could not do anything for me. I was about to give up and was actually considering getting a wig if my hair loss became worse—then I came across Harklinikken online. Although I was very skeptical, I talked to my mother about it, and she had actually just watched a program on television where Harklinikken was mentioned favorably. So, I decided to give it a try, and am I glad that I did! I am no longer embarrassed by my hair. Although the process has been an adjustment, I continue to do everything to ensure my hair never becomes so thin again. The pictures of the results speak for themselves. I even had a friend ask what I had done to my hair to make it so thick because she was upset that hers had become thinner. I told her about my program and recommended that she contact Harklinikken.”
