Clear answer: No!
Maybe some or the other stuff works for you personally, but there is NO scientific proof, that any treatment right now can help you there! (except transplantation of course), neither cosmetic nor medical.
Don't waste your money, it's not worth the try.
But there's hope: Obviously research is pretty close to a cure, so in 5-10 years, baldness could be a problem of the past!
One thing: If your hairloss is caused by illness, there is cure, of course, but if it's genetical, no!

Hair loss is treatable only if you get the proper treatment before you loose your hair. Once you loose all your hair, only a hair transplant will work...
I work for the pharmaceutical company that manufactures Propecia (Finasteride). Since this is a prescription product, I suggest to anyone who is starting to experience hair loss, first go see a Doctor so both can work out which product will help prevent hair loss and if there are any side effects.

Sebolino: Ahem....yes, certainly , but somehow I did understand the question somewhat different, AFTER the hairline is receding, and in that case I'm pretty certain my statement is accurate.
As for hormone-induced illness, see above, a former girlfriend of mine (29yrs old) had this problem, she used something to massage into the scalp, and after 2-3 months she got her beautiful dark hair back in full! And such treatment exists for men in analogue cases, too. But somehow I have a feeling, that is not really the problem discussed here.
btw: there's a rumour that guys without hair do have bigger....noses *cough*, maybe shaving it all off is a good idea after all

If the question is for somebody who has the head like a mirror ( ), then of course, you were right, nothing works, and probably nothing will work, since as far as I know, the problem is that the cells that make the hairs are dead ...
