Few people want to admit they are losing their hair, but many people who are suffering from hair loss want to do something about it. That’s led to many gimmick treatments being developed over the years. While it’s easy to look back on certain gimmicky products and laugh, new "miracle cures" are being touted everyday.
One "cure" that seems new but actually dates back to the 1930s is the idea of vacuuming the hair to improve hair growth. Performed in certain high end salons, the treatment is intended to boost hair growth by improving circulation to the scalp. While the hair vacuums used today might look a little less primitive than those used in the 1930s, the concept behind them remains the same, as do the chances of them reducing your hair loss.
