Hair Transplant TV advert banned as considered misleading

20/08/2015

There is no doubt there are a lot of suspicious claims floating around the internet as far as hair loss is concerned. Sometimes the actual product is questionable and sometimes the way the information is presented gives a misleading idea as to what the product can achieve. This week the Daily Mail Online reported how a high profile hair transplant company had its TV advert banned because it was deemed to be far too misleading.

Hair transplants can be expensive at the best of times. Prices usually range between £3000 and £40,000. In the Zerring Hair Restoration advert which has since been pulled by the ASA (Advertising Standards Agency), the before and after video shows three men who suddenly acquire a full head of hair in about 4 months.

Complaints to the ASA

Complaints poured into ASA suggesting that the transformation was just a bit too good to be believed. The agency investigated and found that the men in the advert were not clients but actors. More than that, the men were not the same men in the before and after shots and the commentary was not taken from actual testimonials.

Overall ASA decided that the implications made by the Ad were not those that could be enjoyed by the average customer. This seems a great pity for the hair transplant industry as the company concerned has shown good results and this upset will only go to tar the company unnecessarily.
