Comb-overs are certainly trending onscreen.

But do you really want to get to this point? No, you don’t. There may not be a hair loss cure, but choosing the right hair growth shampoo is a good place to start. These five products, the best shampoos for men with thinning hair, will get you back on the right track.

“This is one of the few hair shampoos that meets all the necessary criteria to maintain hair health,” says Robert Dorin, D.O., who has over 10 years of experience in the field of hair restoration. “It effectively removes environmental impurities, doesn’t strip the natural protective lipids from your hair and rebalances the moisture content of the hair in its cortex.” The effect is volume, and lots of it.
