A: In order to sue, you need to connect some ingredient in OGX to your current issues, and what you are saying is that these symptoms (hair loss and scalp irritation) only recently arose, although you have been using the product for decades. A causal connection must be established through a medical or chemical expert. That will cost some money.

There is a class action lawsuit pending review and certification regarding your issue. If and when the suit is certified as a class action, you will have an opportunity to join it.
