Drinking Daiquiris Reduces Hair Loss

At least that is the implication of a commercial I heard while I was at the gym earlier. The commercial was for a combination cigarette/frozen drink drive through shop (perhaps a unique animal here in TX?).

Their line of reasoning was this:

  1. Stress causes an increase in estrogen and androgen.
  2. These hormones increase hair loss.
  3. Our daiquiris are made of only the finest natural ingredients.
  4. Therefore, our daiquiris will help you reduce stress.
  5. This reduced stress will help prevent hair loss.**

They even go so far as to say, "Not recommended for topical use." at the end of the commercial.

That has to be the most unique pitch I've ever heard to promote an alcoholic beverage. Of course, they don't mention the fact that both smoking and excessive drinking have been shown to increase hair loss.

** This last part was merely implied.
