Hey guys. I’m Adam from Birchbox. As a grooming
editor, I am often asked about the best products for guys who have thin or thinning hair. This
is a very universal concern for men because time is really not nice to our hairlines,
so today I’m going to talk about a few things you can do, shy of any supplements and transplants,
of course, that will help slow hair loss and really showcase the hair that you still have.
Alright, so one of the first things you can do to prevent hair loss is to pick a shampoo
that blocks the hormone that leads to hair loss. One of the ones I really like is Billy
Jealousy’s Fuzzy Logic Hair Strengthening Shampoo. What this does is it washes away and prevents
further production of DHT at the actual follicle itself, so basically you’re fighting hair
loss by getting rid of the main culprit that’s leading to it.
Next up is a product that I really love is from Davines. It’s their Naturaltech Energizing
Superactive. After I’ve shampooed and I’m out of the shower, I put a few droplets along
my hairline, down the part. It’s re-energizing and reinvigorating the cells that are there,
but more importantly it is fighting DHT production in those places, so it’s going to prevent
hair loss altogether. So the next product is also from Davines,
it is their Replumping Hair Filler Superactive. A little goes a long way here. All you do
is spray it in towel-dried hair, comb it through, let it dry, and it’s going to make your hair
look thicker, and fuller, and should probably last you, like, 5-7 days before you have to
reapply it again. Next up is a relatively new product from Baxter
of California: their Grooming Lotion. What I really love about this is it doesn’t give
you a lot of product buildup when you use it; it’s especially great for guys with medium
or long hair. Product buildup, like DHT, can really choke out the follicles, so with this
you get a really natural finish with a light hold, but it’s also a leave-in conditioner,
so it’s sort of multitasking and enriching the hair that you do have while you put it
in. Alright, the next product is this Tex Texture
Paste from V76 by Vaughn. For guys with shorter or medium styles, I always recommend a paste;
it’s gonna give you a bit of a firmer hold than a cream, and this will just give you
extra texture to make your hair look a little fuller than it is.
The last product today is from Parlor by Jeff Chastain. It is his Moisturizing Sea Salt
Spray. Here at Birchbox we’re pretty big advocates of NOT shampooing your hair every day because
shampoo can often strip the hair of its natural oils that make it healthy. So, what I like to
recommend to guys, especially with medium or longer lengths of hair, is to try a sea
salt spray as your styler in between those washes. It’s gonna absorb some of the oils
without totally stripping it, but it’s also going to give you added volume, added texture.
It’ll make your hair look fuller than it actually is.
OK guys, that does it for me. Leave us a comment if you have questions about anything that
you saw here. We’ll see you next time. Take care!
