Findings show that, hair transplant and various hair grower creams and medications are on the shelves of big supermarkets and pharmacies, but are limited to the elite members of the society.
In an interview with Mr. Ifokwe by selected Journalists in Plateau State, Mr. Ifokwe, disclosed that in order to remedy the class difference and help those many poor Nigerians seeking help in hair loss issues, he took time and efforts to manufacture/produce, “the organic product ROSIVIM”.
