Better to sleep through all hair repair advertisements!

Hair Doc Trichology Hair Clinic makes ridiculous claims about stopping hair loss!

The Advertising Standards Council of India had to ban the advertisement of Hair Doc Trichology Hair Clinic which claims to stop hair loss .

 

The advertisement used  ‘before’ and ‘after’ visuals which did not impress the ASCI which said they too were misleading!

Hair loss is incurable and nothing can bring it back! Check the website of the ASCI and you will find thousands of claims about curing baldness which were banned for false promises!

 

From the website of the ASCI

COMPANY: Hair Doc Trichology Hair Clinic

Claim Objected To: Stop hair loss.

The before and after visuals in the ad appear to be misleading.

CCC RECOMMENDATION: UPHELD

The ASCI approached the advertiser for their response in addressing the objection raised in the complaint. The Advertiser was offered an opportunity for Personal Hearing with the ASCI Secretariat. The advertiser had, however, not responded to ASCI’s request. The CCC noted that no response was received from the advertiser prior to the prescribed due date for this complaint. The CCC viewed the print advertisement and upon careful consideration of the complaint, and in the absence of any comments or response from the advertiser, the CCC concluded that the claim, “Stop hair loss”, was not substantiated. The “before and after” visuals in the advertisement implying efficacy of the product were misleading. The print advertisement contravened Chapters I.1 and I.4 of the ASCI Code. The complaint was UPHELD.
