Do You Really Care About Having Hair?

How do you really, truly, honestly know if you care about losing your hair? A manly man isn’t supposed to, care that is, but is that even a thing? According to the Hair Experts at THICK HEAD for men, obsessing over your pesky, receding hairline, not going on a date due to thinning hair and watching your hair and your self-confidence dwindle away down the shower drain are all signs that yes, you do care and it’s time to make a change. Here’s what they have to say about the issue, process and solution…

No hair, do care
It’s possible you were born blessed with a thick head of hair or maybe, you’ve always had thin strands, either way when you care about it’s loss it means you’re suffering from Hairanoia and no one wants that. At THICK HEAD, the pros believe that accepting your loss is the first step and then knowing there are solutions is the second.

The facts
Know that you’re not alone. In fact, you’re actually the majority of the population. While there are no current stats in Canada, based on studies by the American Hair Loss Association, two-thirds of American men experience some degree of appreciable hair loss. Once you turn 50, this number increases to 85 per cent of men experiencing significantly thinning hair. And no, you aren’t being punked.

How thin hair occurs
Hair loss can be attributed to a whole variety of things such as your age, genetics, hormones, stress, inflammation, illness, medication, nutrition and the environment. And then, there’s Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a derivative of sorts of your testosterone. When your testosterone is converted into DHT it binds itself to your hair follicles on/off switch causing the follicles to weaken, shrink and essentially, stop making more hair.

What you can do
The hair experts at THICK HEAD believe that getting ahead of the issue (no pun intended) is key, so they’ve developed a line of haircare products infused with an ingredient that helps reduce DHT on your scalp called 2X-DHT-Complex. By using a three-step process inclusive of CLEAR HEAD a 2-IN-1Anti-Thinning Shampoo + Conditioner ($9.95, available online at www.thickhead.com), HEAD RUSH, a hair and scalp ingestible supplement ($39.95 available online at www.thickhead.com), and HEAD’S Up thickening gel ($9.95, available online at www.thickhead.com), every single day, you can target your hair loss at the root and scalp. Ideally stopping it before it even has a chance to start.
