Your hair is going to be more buff than you. Jack Black’s formula pumps creatine and wheat protein into the hair shaft, increasing the thickness of each strand. “This made-for-men shampoo contains potent body-building ingredients that dive deep into each hair shaft for a volumized, full appearance,” says Dr. Joel Schlessinger, board certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon. Besides supplying plump strands, this hair growth shampoo is packed with white lupine, which stimulates the scalp and hair follicles to sustain healthy hair growth and minimize hair loss.
One of the first hair growth shampoos on the market, Nioxin claims to offer refuge for three out of four balding men in the U.S. when used in conjunction with their scalp treatment. If the actual results are even half that, this may just be the best shampoo for men and as close to a hair loss cure as we’ve got.
“Nioxin is designed to improve the scalp health environment as well as improve the appearance of fine and thin-looking hair,” Dorin says.
There are eight specially crafted treatment systems to choose from, and here’s where you need to be honest with yourself. Are we talking Vince Vaughn or is it more of a Jason Alexander situation (circa Seinfeld)? If it’s the latter, it might be a bit far-fetched to expect to look like Jason Alexander (circa now).
