Can you stop Hair loss? What products work | SLMan
If you’ve noticed your hairline creeping higher and you’re not going to take it lying down, there are some things you can try. You can’t always reverse hair loss, but you can help prevent it. Here’s a selection of the products that promise to help you keep your hair on.


This is an all-round service that includes an online consultation with an independent physician, who will determine whether you require prescription treatment and then send you a treatment package containing hair-loss medication. The package includes a month’s supply of Finasteride tablets, which target baldness at the crown and centre of your head. Finasteride is a serious solution to hair loss as it blocks DHT, the hormone responsible for causing hair loss. If you think a simple shampoo isn’t enough to salvage your scalp, opt for this treatment plan.

Kérastase Densifique Homme

For men who are looking for something a little less clinical, Kérastase offers a shampoo specifically designed to thicken thinning hair rather than inducing new hair growth. It contains biotin, as well as a range of essential vitamins, which counteract the conditions that cause thinning hair. After three months, your hair should appear thicker and denser. This product comes in a sleek black bottle and has a refreshingly fragrant scent.

Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo

This is a popular, affordable solution, if you’re not looking to splash out on a more extensive treatment plan.

The constituent ingredient in Regaine is minoxidil, which is said to prevent hair loss by stimulating hair growth. As you age, your hormone levels deplete. Minoxidil helps by giving your hair follicles a boost of youth. This product often comes up as a reliable solution to aid hair loss and is endorsed by industry experts. So, for the 40% of men that will start to experience male pattern baldness by the age of 35, get a hold of Regaine Scalp Solution or Scalp Foam to turn back time on hair loss.

AND For a more hard-core measure...

Vibrant Me Intramuscular Shot

Perhaps a more drastic treatment, this biotin shot is delivered directly into the muscle for greater effect. As well as fighting hair loss, it also promotes healthier hair and nail growth. Keratin, the protein that makes up your hair, requires biotin to restructure your hair. The idea is that a hit of biotin will induce greater keratin production to initiate re-growth and strengthen the hair you have left. Available at the Urban Retreat Medi-Spa department via an IV, this vitamin H shot delivers biotin straight to source.
