Men and thinning hair
Thinning hair can affect more of us than you may realise, with around 85% of men experiencing some kind of hair thinning by the time they’re 50. While it can be caused by a range of factors which will affect each person differently, here are some of the main ones:
- Lack of protein
Some of these can be as a result of our lifestyles, such as smoking habits or stress and could potentially be reduced. Factors such as genetics and hormone however, are not so easy to stop and can play a big role in hair thinning in men as they can affect testosterone levels in the body. The enzyme 5 alpha reductase (5α-reductases) converts testosterone into DHT which can cause the hair follicles to shrink and slow down growth. As a result, ingredients that claim to be DHT and 5 alpha reductase blockers have become very popular amongst those experiencing hair thinning.
Foligain Shampoo for Men
The Foligain Shampoo for Men is so much more than just your average shampoo. Not only can it help in cleansing the hair and scalp to reduce product buildup for healthy conditions, it can also help to work for the hair deep down. Designed specifically for thinning hair in men, this stimulating shampoo has a one of a kind formula thanks to its Trioxidil™ triple action complex that is exclusive to the Foligain range. Formulated by a team of hair care experts, the triple action complex is made up of a carefully chosen range of clinically tested bioactive ingredients. With the help of its liposphere micro-emulsion technology this complex is then infused into the hair and scalp to help with thinning hair on three fronts:
The natural formula can provide beneficial proteins that can help to strengthen and revitalise the hair
Carefully selected bioactive ingredients work to look after the thinning hair to help fortify the follicles from within
Helps support scalp health by sealing in nutrients and the skins moisture so then it's ready for healthy hair
What makes the Foligain Shampoo for Men so unique ultimately comes down to the precise selection of clinically studied ingredients. Each ingredient with the exclusive Trioxidil™ triple action complex has been carefully chosen for not just their individual benefits, but also their ability to work together within the formula.
Used since ancient times, Fennel has been very popular thanks to its many properties. Known to be rich in saponins, Fennel can work to help cleanse, purify and strengthen. This can benefit the hair and help to make it radiant and strong.
Although most commonly found in tea, Chamomile actually has a number uses when applied topically. Not only can it help to soothe the skin, but it is also said to help deeply nourish weak hair and add a healthy-looking shine.
Known for its countless amazing benefits, Green Tea is real favourite. In terms of its benefits for the hair and scalp, it is said to help provide a number of useful nutrients. Caffeine and catechins in Green Tea are known to help to stimulate the follicles and protect from damage.
Olives are known to be one of the richest and nourishing ingredient for the skin. Thanks to its lightweight texture, it can act as a great natural moisturiser and as it is an emollient it can help to deeply nourish the hair fibres.
Probably one of the most well-known of the skincare vitamins, vitamin E can also be very beneficial for the hair. It is known to help with nourishing the strands all the way down to the roots and moisturise the scalp to promote healthy conditions.
Consisting of a range of clinically studied ingredients that have been rigorously tested and researched, the Foligain Conditioner for Men formula is made to the highest possible quality.
