Today our sponsor is Keeps.
Losing hair is not good. And 2 out of 3 guys will experience hair loss by the time they’re 35. I want to introduce you to Keeps – the easiest and most affordable way to keep the hair you have.
These FDA approved products used to cost so much, but now… thanks to Keeps, they’re finally inexpensive and easy to get. Starting at just $10 per month, you’ll never have to worry about hair loss again. Key advantages are:
1. Getting started with Keeps is so easy! Sign up takes less than 5 minutes in the privacy of your home. Just answer a few questions and snap some photos of your hair.
2. A licensed physician will review your information online and recommend the right treatment for you, then it’s shipped right to your door every three months.
3. Keeps offers generic versions of the ONLY two FDA approved hair loss products out there — some of you have probably tried them before — but you’ve probably never gotten them for this price.
4. Keeps is only $10 to $35 a month – plus now you can get your first month FREE. That’s a good deal for getting to keep your hair.
To receive your first month treatment for free, go to Keeps.com/BGM.
