The 8 Best Hair Growth Products for Men + What to Look For

“Male hair loss (or hair loss in men) often begins with a receding hairline and ‘widow’s peaks’, with eventual hair loss from the crown of the scalp (top)”, dermatologist certified from the Schweiger Dermatology Group Jason Miller, MD, FAAD says mbg.

Women tend to have more subtle thinning throughout the scalp, characterized by an enlarged portion or greater visibility of the scalp, Miller says.

The most common cause of hair loss in both men and women is androgenetic alopecia. This type of hair loss is usually caused by “genetic changes in certain hormones that lead to thinning hair,” says Miller.

However, traumatic events or increased stress and autoimmune diseases can also lead to hair loss. This type of loss is not instantaneous. “Under high stress, hair begins to fall out about three to six months later,” Christine Shaver, MD, FAAD, of Bernstein Medical Center for Hair Restoration in New York City, told mbg.

It is important to know what is causing your hair loss in order to best treat it. If your hair loss is hormonal, oral medications can be a good addition to a topical hair growth regimen. Either way, scalp care is essential and these products are A+ for a happy, healthy scalp.
