Best Product for Male Hair Loss
Just Google “best product for male hair loss” and you will get in upwards of 113,000,000 results. There are so many products on the market for hair loss. It could be hundreds if not thousands. Some hair loss products promise to regrow hair in 2-3 months. Hair loss products are available over the counter or by prescription. Some of the hair loss products have been around for a long time, while others are new to the scene. Even as a 35-year Master Men’s Hairstylist, the search is overwhelming. I can only imagine what searching for hair loss products could be like for men.
The search results for the “best product for male hair loss” turned up a favorite search topic of clickable links. Healthline returned “17 Best Hair Loss Treatments for Men in 2023“. This is a great place to start, but a better place to start this conversation is with your hairstylist. Educated men’s hairstylists are trained in the best products for male hair loss whether by prescription or non-prescription. We understand the difference between hair shedding prevention and hair loss restoration. Men’s hairstylists also understand these two concepts really do go hand in hand. Hair shedding prevention systems help hair loss restoration tools perform better and garner optimum results.
Male Hair Loss | A Growing Challenge
It is really important to discuss hair shedding, which is hair that naturally falls out as it has moved through its normal growth cycle. Hair grows in three stages. The first stage of the cycle is the anagen phase, which is the growth phase. The catagen phase is the next stage, which is when the hair goes into its transitional phase. The last stage is the telogen phase. This phase is referred to as the resting phase. Each individual hair strand goes through this hair growth cycle individually. Thankfully, each hair strand is in its own independent cycle at different times preventing hair from shedding all at once 🙀😅.
The American Academy of Dermatology reports the average person sheds between 50 to 100 hairs per day. Normal shedding occurs throughout the day, but it is most prevalent during washing and brushing the hair. Hair loss is when a person loses more than 100 hairs per day, the loss is in a localized area, and the hair stops growing in a specific area.
MEN’S GROOMING TIP: A key to maintaining the maximum number of hairs on the head at a given time is keeping the hair in the longest growth stage possible.
Hair loss among young men is on the rise. A study conducted at Tsinghua University in Beijing found that 60% of students experienced hair loss to some degree. In fact, the China Association of Health Promotion and Education discovered that men in their 30s were losing hair faster than any other age group. There are factors beyond genetics that contribute to male hair loss. Stress, poor diet, lack of sleep, and smoking increase a man’s chance of experiencing hair loss.
Hair Loss Products | A Billion Dollar Industry
Again, Google “Men’s Hair Loss Products” and 123,000,000 search results populate. In October 2019, the estimated revenue from these types of products was $4 billion. This figure also includes hair restoration products. The hair loss treatment and restoration manufacturing segment is estimated to grow another 1,1% alone in 2023. Men should proceed with caution when purchasing products that promise to regrow hair, especially in light of major news outlets constructing headlines such as:
Men are a multibillion dollar growth opportunity for the beauty industry — CNBC 2019
Men were expected to spend $166 billion on beauty products in 2022. This number is expected to rise even more. The best grooming tip I can give to men is to do their research before spending money on the next “it” hair loss treatment.
Hair Growth Products versus Hair Loss Prevention Products
Nioxin | Hair Loss Prevention System
I do believe Nioxin works to curb the number of hairs lost per day, making it a hair-shedding prevention tool. Think of it like this. The more hair kept on the scalp at a given time prevents hair loss.
I use it and saw a difference in how little hair was left in my brush every day. It took about 4 months when I noticed it because it took that long to clean all the debris on my scalp and strengthen my hair. FOR MEN Salon | Spa has carried this product since opening in 2004 and has continued to see a strong demand even in this economy. Why is the demand so strong for Nioxin? Because men are concerned about hair loss and feel very comfortable speaking with their stylists about such a sensitive issue. Men’s hairstylists can educate clients about hair loss, what causes it, and how to slow it down or stop it.
Why Nioxin is the Best Product for Male Hair Loss
Nioxin Cleanser is designed to thoroughly clean the scalp skin of product build-up, sebum, and DHT. The conditioner (aka Scalp Therapy) brings blood flow to the hair follicle creating a healthy base for hair to grow. Nioxin Scalp Treatment protects the scalp and hair from future build-up, curbing DHT, and keeps each hair in the longest growth stage possible. The entire Nioxing system used daily and as directed will keep more hair on the scalp longer and prevent less hair from being lost. Nioxin products are designed to prevent hair loss. Although they do have products containing Minoxidil, which has been proven to regrow hair.
Nioxin products are for everyone, not just the person losing hair. This is a great prevention tool for anyone concerned with hair loss. Anyone can experience hair loss at any age. I often tell people since we all wash and condition our hair, why not use products that have way more benefits than just cleaning the hair? If you are concerned about hair loss, speak to your stylist and ask how you can confront it head-on with Nioxin products.
