What's the difference between men's and women's hair? And how to grow men's hair faster?
Hair loss in both men and women is called androgenetic alopecia. It's no surprise as everyone ages.
The hormone testosterone and its conversion cause it into a molecule called DHT. This alteration causes hair follicles to shrink, resulting in hair loss.
Men have more testosterone than women do, so balding is more common in men.
Hair loss is one of the most potent fears for men at a young age. Recent research has shown that a quarter of men aged 25-29 are more concerned with losing their hair than other age-related issues. It's the frightening prospect of going bald that feels like a loss of masculinity or power.
BUT it's not all bad news. Whether you're starting to see strands of your hair at the bottom of your shower or are just worried that your thick head of hair won't last forever, there is a solution to give you healthy hair and scalp.
VITAMAN Hair Food is a potent tonic made from indigenous ingredients like Quandong and Saw Palmetto Fruit - which many experts consider a critical weapon in the war on balding.
And what guy couldn't use help in that department?
Saw Palmetto is an alternative remedy that treats hair loss. It's a plant with small berries that are known as medicine and food for hundreds of years.
There's evidence that it may help treat an enlarged prostate. It also treats:

What causes a man's hair to break?

So always gently pat/press your scalp and hair when towel drying. Don't vigorously polish your scalp like your shining your shoes!
Remember, it's never too late to start!
How do men keep their hair thick?
While in the shower, make sure your water is warm and not too hot. Shampooing in water that is too hot can strip your hair and scalp of essential oils, so shower using the coldest water possible.
Thoroughly wet the hair, apply a generous amount of VITAMAN Hair Thickening Shampoo into the palm of your hand and work it through your hair.
Using the tips of your fingers, work in a firm circular motion from the scalp's front down to the back of the neck and then up the sides towards the temples.
Continue this motion for a few minutes. It will stimulate the blood supply and exfoliate the scalp. Leave in briefly before rinsing clean.
Step out of the shower, and towel dry your hair (gently)
Apply VITAMAN Hair Food liberally to freshly shampooed and rinsed hair and massage into your scalp and hair.
Leave on for 15-20mins and then rinse and condition.
Rinse your hair thoroughly, then apply a generous amount of VITAMAN Hair Thickening Conditioner in the same way you used the shampoo. Leave in briefly before rinsing.
Now that you have these tips to maintain healthy hair, there's only one thing left to do - take care of your hair and let it grow out!
