hair club is a real company, and they guarantee their work. hair club staff include prominent board-certified doctors, researchers world-class hair stylists, and trained hair-loss consultants -- experts -- real people who love what they do and aspire to help others. during this show, you'll meet these unique individuals. most important, you'll meet real clients who, like many of you, wanted to do something about their hair loss. are you ready to do something about your thinning hair? if you're ready to act or even just find out more about hair loss, hair club is ready to help. stay tuned and you'll learn more about this unique company and the thousands of people hair club has helped to get their hair back. >> i wanted to project myself in the very best possible way. i decided that having my hair back the way it used to be was an important step for me. >> myself, i'm 45 years old. and, you know, i'm not in the best shape in the world, but one thing -- i'm continually trying to get better, and my hair is just one less problem i ever have to think about. >> i feel blessed. i've not worried about other
people passing judgment or wondering what might be wrong with me. i don't second guess going to the store or going to the movies or going to have a drink. i'm confident. i'm comfortable. >> welcome back. let's get right to the root of the problem -- hair loss and what causes it. now, hair loss affects more than 70 million people in north america today -- 40 million men and 30 million women. that's a lot of people. some people try products that claim to re-grow hair only to find out a few hundred dollars later that they didn't work. don't waste your money on unproven remedies. if you care about how you look and you want to get your hair back, take time to listen to world-renowned hair-loss expert dr. jon gaffney, a board-certified plastic surgeon and member of the american medical association. >> hair loss, for both men and women, is more common than you think. by the age of 50, half the adult population experiences hair loss. many of us in the medical community expect this trend to increase over time, in part, due
to such things as stress, poor nutrition, bad diets, and certain prescription medication. hair loss is different for men and women. male-pattern hair loss is the most common hair loss for men representing more than 90% of all male cases in north america. it occurs due to the chemical dihydrotestosterone, commonly known as dht. dht causes a shortening of the life span of the hair follicles in these men. the follicle's resistance to dht, or lack thereof, is genetic and that's why some men go bald and some don't. >> for me, i started to go bald when i was in high school. it was a little bit at the beginning, and then it got really worse once i got into college and to the point where it was really dramatic. and, through this time, i started to use a lot of different products, a lot of different things that promised, you know, re-growing of hair things of that nature. >> hair loss for women, in many ways, is far more traumatic. the psychological effects for
women can be devastating. there are many different causes of hair loss among women -- female-pattern thinning, which is genetic diffuse hair loss, menopause-related, postpartum, or stress-related shedding, and alopecia areata or spotty hair loss are just a few. some hair loss in women is caused by poor hair care. harsh chemical relaxers or tight hair braiding can permanently damage these hair follicles. >> you know, a woman losing her hair has to be the most difficult thing in the world. you know, you expect men to lose their hair, but not women right? it's very unbecoming. it's embarrassing. you lose your self-esteem. i mean, i did the weave thing. then you get the wigs. guess what? you're very uncomfortable going out. it's a windy day. you don't know if it's gonna blow off. i'm a profuse sweater right? it could just slide off. then you pick up a kid, they grab it, it moves. it's like, "enough already!" there has got to be something better. >> there is an old expression that says, "if the only tool you have is a hammer, then all the
world looks like a nail." hair club is not about one tool. it's about all proven hair-loss solutions. >> that was dr. jon gaffney world-renowned hair-loss expert. now we'll show you how you can get your hair back with proven hair-loss solutions. >> male announcer: don't tolerate another day of hair loss or thinning hair, because now, the solution you need to get a fuller, natural head of hair is just one phone call away. hair club is the only company in the world to offer all tested and proven hair-loss solutions, because no single solution is right for every type of hair loss. call hair club now for this free educational booklet and get a free microscopic hair-and-scalp analysis at any of our hair club centers nationwide. young or old, man or woman, no matter what kind of hair loss you may have, hair club has a unique solution for you, guaranteed. no other company on the planet can make that claim. hair club has been the

it made. i felt so good about myself. i've never felt better. >> some people didn't even notice i had anything done. they just said, "you look good. you look younger." and it's just a pleasant experience all the way around. >> it looked so natural to me so i went and checked it out, made the phone call, and it really changed my life. >> i don't second-guess going to the store or going to the movies or going to have a drink. i'm confident. i'm comfortable. >> now let's talk about the proven solutions available to you at hair club and the hair club guarantee of satisfaction. what is proven to work? hair club has expertise in three areas -- non-surgical hair enhancement, fda-approved hair therapies, and microscopic follicular unit hair transplants. available only at hair club, the bio-matrix strand-by-strand process is known around the world as the gold standard in hair replacement. hair club's groundbreaking technology is the only process available to date that gives you a full, healthy-looking head of hair by adding real human hair
to your own hair. bio-matrix is not a toupee. it's not a wig. it's a custom-made blend of your own hair with real human hair that is matched to your individual requirements. that includes hair color facial structure, and skin tone. the process is natural and virtually undetectable. when you brush your hair, it all blends together. if someone touches your hair, it feels normal. it's easy to style. you can rough it up. you can go swimming, biking jogging, or anywhere life takes you, and you will look great. >> i can swim, i bike, hike, i do everything, and the key point here is no one has noticed. everybody thinks i look better but they can't quite put their finger on it. so, when they told me that would happen, i didn't believe it. i thought everybody would notice right away, but they didn't. they just thought, "well, your hair's different. what'd you do?" and so i just -- in some cases, people that were close to me, i told them. other people, i just let them
guess. and so i think that's important for women especially to know is that you're gonna look great. you're gonna feel great. >> i didn't want to be one of those guys that you walk down the street and say, "hey, buddy. nice hair. who shot the mannequin?" you know, that kind of thing just didn't fly for me. it's very important that it be undetectable. >> we are very lucky today to grow up at a time where technology is as advanced as it is. i've had a chance to replace my hair with a technology that is unbelievable, and i'm very happy that i did it. >> people think that i have probably found some magic ointment or something, right? they have no idea that i've actually gone to hair club. i have, in fact, shared it with some, but not many. right? because i like to keep them guessing. do you realize how nice it is for someone to walk up to you and say, "my god, you have the most beautiful head of hair"? and i say, "thank you." >> hair club is also a leader in hair therapies, with its extreme hair therapy program. >> the ext program and product regimen includes high-quality shampoos, cleansers, and
conditioners as well as the fda-approved hair re-growth agent minoxidil. it is an excellent program for men and women in the early stages of hair loss and has been proven to work for many people. the success of the program depends on your level and type of hair loss. i recommend you have a consultation at hair club to determine whether or not you are a good ext candidate. >> hair club also offers, in select areas, the gold standard in hair transplantation -- microscopic follicular unit hair transplants. it's natural, permanent, and your transplanted hair is guaranteed to grow the way mother nature programmed it to. >> if you are a hair-transplant candidate, when choosing a hair-transplant physician, the three most important aspects you must consider are artistry experience, and patient care. hair club's physicians are highly experienced artists having performed more 50,000 procedures, and patient care at hair club is paramount. >> when you actually see the hair grow, you're amazed. you're watching it grow day by
day from a thinner look to a fuller look till you can do the things that you've always wanted to do with your hair using different products and styling your hair differently. >> i finally went to the hair club, and i found that they had the best technology, and they were far superior than everyone else. they treated me like family like i was somebody important. i decided to go with them, and the results speak for themselves. people would just kind of look at you and wonder, "what's going on? this guy's looking younger and younger," and i'm feeling better and better about it. and it just -- it's a great feeling. >> hair club is the only company that offers all proven hair-loss solutions, backed by a guarantee of satisfaction. if you are not 100% satisfied with the option you've chosen hair club will apply your initial purchase price to any of its other proven hair-loss solutions. hair club has changed many people's lives. you might not know it now but i used to have a hair-loss problem. is your hair loss bothering you?

this is a paid program from ronco. stay tuned for an incredible free offer. get two complete 25 piece sets of showtime cutlery for the price of one. welcome to showtime's great knife giveaway show. hello, i'm steve bryant. i'm your show host today for a very special program. today you're going to meet a man that some people call the viceroy of value; the count of all things culinary. most people call him the king of the kitchen. who is this great american inventor? ron popeil. let's give him a big round of applause, he's here today. a's inventor, and i'm proud to call him, my friend. hello ron.
hi. i'd shake your hand, but i'm loaded down. i was gonna say. look at these. these are knives that i have and i have a drawer like this at home. we all have drawers like this at home. am i right? yeah. let me take these knives and put them where they belong okay. all right. that's that. problem solved. so ron, what really great innovative product have you brought us today? well, i've created the greatest knife. a knife that'll never get dull. we call it the showtime six star plus series. they're perfectly balanced, but before we get into the knife and why it's such a great value i want to introduce to you my daughter shannon, my other daughter lauren and over here my cousin arnold who wants to show you my fabulous showtime knife. how many of you have a knife that looks something like this? oh, it was a good knife when you first got it. maybe six months later it got dull. did you ever try to cut a tomato with one of these babies? oh boy. you poke it; you stab it; you jab it; you give the oh my goodness gracious the poor tomato has a hemorrhage.
well, ladies and gentlemen let me tell you something. my cousin ron has come up with one of the most unbelievable knives that i've ever laid my hands on. and one of the things that makes it so important is how it's made and what's made of. first of all, let me describe this knife. it's called the showtime knife. it is made out of fine surgical steel. it is a full tang. in other words, the tang means the blade goes from here to the opposite end. it's one solid piece of steel. and the handle. oh. the handle is covered by the same guarantee. will not crack chip, or break, ever. and if anything ever happens to that knife, this is the strangest part, let me show you this guarantee. this is unreal. unbelievable in the cutlery business. if it ever gets broken, dull, damaged, even if it's your fault, my cousin ron is going to replace this absolutely free. let me show you something about this knife over here. have you ever seen a knife this sharp in your whole life?
let me tell you something. when it comes to slicing a tomato you don't have to slice a tomato. the weight of the knife alone slices it. you don't slice the tomato you caress it. look at this. with this knife one tomato will last you a week. ever go into a don't laugh. you go into a fast food restaurant they've been using our knife and the same tomato for six weeks. here, pick up the bun, look underneath. does that look familiar? that's why you go in hungry and you come out starved. look, you use this knife you save yourself money. if you're going to the discount stores buy loaves of meat and you'll never have dried up meat in the refrigerator. you only slice off what you need when you need it. i don't care whether it's ham, roast beef, lamb, turkey. this knife is like a hot knife going right through butter. it has a fork on the end so you pick up the meat dip it into the gravy. remember, that's a grape fruit. look at this. not a seed, not a drop of juice comes out because this is razor sharp and the best part of it is;
