Spend less and gain more with a safe and affordable hair care plan that can help reduce hair loss and promote healthy hair growth

Most men suffer from baldness by the time they reach the age of 40.  Losing hair isn't something that's new - it is a natural occurrence that has been handed down to us through countless generations. Men will continue to go bald, and unfortunately, that's as fact.

As things stand, there still isn't a cure for male baldness, or any other type of hair loss for that matter, but there are a host of treatments out there, and although some work better than others, most of them do tend to come with a hefty price tag.

If you're looking to avoid the medically approved treatments such as Finasteride and Minoxidil (both come with nasty side-effects), and save a few bob in the process, then here are five safe, natural, and affordable products that you can try in order to beat baldness.

1. Biotin & Collagen Root Boost Spray

We all know about Biotin and its ability to boost hair growth, so couple that with Collagen, and you have a quite potent mix. We constantly rave about the Biotin & Collagen Shampoo, by OGX, so why not try another product from this line - packed with the same additives for optimal hair health. You can grab one of these sprays for around £5 a bottle, and it should last you a good couple of months at least.

2. Saw Palmetto Topical Serum

The North American plant extract, Saw Palmetto, has been found to inhibit the formation of DHT, which is the cause of baldness. Applying a few drops of Saw Palmetto to your scalp two to three times a week can help reduce the amount of hair you lose, and help pave the way for stronger, fuller hair growth. You should be able to purchase a bottle of Saw Palmetto liquid for under £10.

3. Folic Acid Supplement

Folic acid, an essential B vitamin, is vital to the proper functioning of the human body. A deficiency in Folic Acid can cause a host of medical problems, including the stunting of hair growth. Taking a healthy daily dosage of Folic Acid can help stabilise your hair follicles and help them function properly. Folic Acid supplements can be purchased for around £5.

4. Biotin Supplement

Biotin has been called 'hair food' and rightly so since one of the effects seen most often is an increased rate of growth in the hair when taking biotin supplements on a daily basis. This potent B7 vitamin should be an essential part of our hair care plan, especially if you are suffering from thinning hair. Again, this stuff is cheap, so expect to pay less than £10 for a 10,000mcg bottle.

5. Derma Roller

The derma roller was originally used to minimise wrinkles and other skin imperfections, but it has been discovered that it can also be used as a stimulant for hair growth. The derma roller device works by triggering the production of human growth factor, by wounding the skin and forcing it to create protein through the repairing process.  Use this 2-3 times a week for best results.  Price wise, you should be able to purchase a 0.2mm derma roller for around £10.

The new men's wellness brand hits the UK with a range of products for hair loss and general health.

The men's wellness market has skyrocketed over the past few years, and with an ever increasing amount of male beauty brands hitting the scene. Hair loss and erectile dysfunction treatments are now huge business. In fact, the market for these treatments continues to grow at a staggering rate, and it doesn't look like stopping any time soon.

The hair loss sector alone is reported to be worth a colossal £2.5 billion, and sales of Viagra rocketed to well over £4 million in the U.K. in first few months after it finally became available over the counter. That's a huge increase for both markets since the transitional period of the noughties, when men's wellness and beauty was more of a taboo subject.

The men's hair loss market 
is worth over £2 billion

Now the UK has embraced the men's wellness and beauty culture, taking it to new unfounded territories at times.  And so it is no surprise to see the men's wellness brand, Hims, coming to these shores. The main question is: Does this brand offer us anything we don't already have?

What is Hims?

Hims is a well-established men's wellness brand in the USA, focusing on two main aspects of men's health - baldness and erectile dysfunction. The online personal wellness experts provide a one-stop-shop for men’s wellness and personal care needs, offering access to both Sildenafil (the active ingredient in Viagra) and Finasteride (a medically approved hair loss treatment pill) all from the comfort of your own home.

There’s an initial one-off medical consultation fee, which is there for regulatory reasons and because it’s important to have your order signed of by a medical expert, but after that you are ok to use the treatments. The brand will soon be offering a range of personal care products too, including antioxidant-packed immunity gummies, and a Vitamin C-rich Morning Glow Serum. But this is still unconfirmed.

What are the Treatments Hims offer? 

Tackling two of men's most private and worrying issues is noble, but it does seem rather dated.  People were, and still are, making a lot of money from selling hair loss treatments and Viagra type products. So, what's so new about Hims?

Well, nothing, actually.  If you strip back the brand to its core, you're left with Finasteride, Minoxidil, and Viagra. The thing is, Viagra is now legally sold over the counter, and Minoxidil is available to purchase over the counter, or even online with no prescription.  As for Finasteride, more commonly known as Propecia, this has been prescribed to men for years.  There isn't actually anything different or revolutionary that Hims offers the UK market.

The funny thing is, one of the most common side-effects from using Finasteride is erectile dysfunction. So, it seems a bit contradictory for a company to sell a hair loss treatment that potentially causes erectile dysfunction, of which is another treatment they offer.  That could get very complicated...

So, is Hims really all about men's 'wellness'? 
Hmm, it certainly is debatable.

Because Hims haven't really cracked a market as such, you will actually be able to find plenty of the same, or even cheaper and safer alternatives, to their treatments. There isn't anything different about these products that we haven't already got here in the UK. 

What are the alternatives treatments?

Finasteride does come with some potentially nasty side-effects, and so we now live in a culture where men are a lot more conscious about their health. Gone are the days when we risk our wellness in an attempt to gain a few hairs.  There is now a demand for safe, natural products.

If you want to avoid the harsh, prescription drugs, then consider a safe and natural multi-vitamin supplement like Viviscal or HR23+.  These types of supplements give our hair all the right minerals and nutrients that your food can't give you alone.

Multi-vitamin hair supplements are designed to help prevent hair loss and support the healthy function of hair growth. They are considered to be safe, and free from any unwanted side-effects.

Learn how Copenhagen Grooming helps men grow and groom awesome beards with three simple products! 

Copenhagen Grooming (CG) are a young team of passionate beard enthusiasts who want to change the way men around the world treat and stimulate their beards. Unlike other beard brands, Copenhagen Grooming does not only focus on maintaining beards - they are all about growing beards!

With a wide array of harmful medicine or beard oils that do absolutely nothing for stimulating beard growth, from here a long trial and error process, CG started to develop the optimal solution. In collaboration with dermatological experts, CG finally found a "groundbreaking active ingredient with amazing abilities in the field of hair growth".

The name of the natural wonder child is Capilia Longa, and it has proved to be as effective, if not more, than those existing in the medicinal industry.  All their cosmetic products are manufactured in Denmark using cutting-edge manufacturing techniques and the very best ingredients.

We should note that these are only claims made by the company, and that further testing and studies would need to be carried out in order to prove these claims.  With that said, let's look at the products...

The Beard Roller 

With the newest technology in cosmetic science, it is now possible to penetrate hair follicles at the root and stimulate hair growth. With the derma roller a popular product for stimulating hair regrowth, there are many men now using it to try and activate facial hair growth.

The Beard Roller consists of a metal moulded, crafty handle made with rubber-resist technology combined with a head of 540 titanium needles (0.5 mm). When in use, these needles create “micro-injuries” in the skin and follicles.  This procedure sends collagen production into overdrive which is stimulating beard growth by boosting blood circulation and keratin production. This procedure allows your skin to more effectively absorb The Activator Serum and boost your beard to its full potential.

On paper this seems good, but again, results will vary with each individual.  This is not guaranteed t work on every man, an it will not work if you do not have any follicles there to begin with.

The Activator Serum

The Activator Serum contains natural, active ingredients that can help boost new hair growth. It does so by activating the sleeping follicles that lie in a resting state underneath the skin. Besides the well-known compounds Biotin and Arginine, the serum contains the patented, active ingredient Capilia Longa which is specially designed to create the optimal micro-environment to activate hair growth.

This serum could be seen as a safe and natural alternative to Minoxidil.  Many men have tried Minoxidil on their face to stimulate hair growth, but want to avoid the side-effects  This serum is unlikely to be as effective, but it at least offers an alternative.

The Beard Roller Sanitizer 

The Sanitizer is simply used to keep everything clean. The Sanitizer is perfect for cleaning The Beard Roller before use. Simple as that. It can also be applied to your skin for a clean and refreshing feeling.

Try the Copenhagen Grooming Beard Growth Kit

So, there you have it. Looking to get more from your facial fuzz? Need an extra boost that is safe and free from any of those nasty side-effects? Well, give the Copenhagen Grooming beard growth kit a try, and let us know how you get on.

How to best tackle the devastating effects of baldness and thinning hair, safely, naturally and effectively.

Guest post by Ben Bianchi.

Going bald was never an option for me, and certainly not while I was still in my twenties. But noticing my hair beginning to fall out at the age of just 24, really made me sit up and take action.

I am now 31, and I have been treating baldness for over six years.  I would say, certainly in comparison to most men, I have done a good job in steadying the pattern of fall, and maintaining a good head of healthy hair growth.

I honestly believe, had I not treated the problem early, I would now have much less hair on my scalp. Finding a hair loss treatment plan early, has enabled me to slow down the rate of hair fall, and increase the strength and condition of hair growth.

Here, I'll go through my treatment plan, and what products worked for me. I was always keen to avoid chemically enhanced treatments, so all the products I use are safe and natural.

Shampoo for strengthening hair

With very little knowledge about hair loss treatments, my first thought was to find a shampoo that could help strengthen my hair, thus making it less likely to fall out. Now, I know fully well that there is no scientific evidence backing the theory that baldness can be treated with shampoos, but, a good hair strengthening shampoo can be very handy if you have naturally thin hair, like me.
Due to its blend of biotin and collagen, I went for the OGX Biotin & Collagen Shampoo. It's not a miracle worker, but this shampoo has definitely helped me maintain some much needed volume to my hair. Keeping my hair strong is essential, because I have naturally weak hair, and this can be prone to breakage and fall-out, which is a nightmare if you are trying to prevent hair loss.

Topical serum to stimulate hair growth

My next task was to find something that could help prevent the rate of shedding, and stimulate hair growth.  I looked into topical solutions, and the main one that kept popping up was Minoxidil. Minoxidil is a medically approved treatment for hair loss, but it's not natural, and it does come with some potentially harsh side-effects.
So, I looked into some natural serums, and after considering a fair few, I opted for HR23+ Scalp Therapy Serum. This safe and natural formula is packed with hair beneficiary ingredients that can help prevent hair loss and encourage healthier hair growth. I have been using this serum for about four years, and I have been very pleased with it.  This serum seems to have stopped the shedding, and helped strengthen my strands.

Massaging the scalp for hair growth

I did a lot of reading about how scalp penetration and can help stimulate hair growth. I looked at derma rollers, and vibrating massaging devices, but I wanted something a little more valid.

So, I booked myself into some Indian Head Massage Therapy, just to see how effective it could be for my thinning hair.  I have definitely noticed some great results from this. My hair looks and feels much thicker, and I have definitely noticed less hair fall.  This, in conjunction with the shampoo and serum, has helped my hair considerably.  Currently, I have one head massage a week.

Hair Vitamins and Supplements 

What we eat is actually hugely important to our hair.  For the hair to thrive, we need to be loading our bodies with plenty of vital nutrients and minerals that benefit the strands. The problem is, it's impossible to get all these minerals into our daily diet through food alone.  So, that's why multi-vitamin hair supplements are so important.

There are a number of safe and natural multi-vitamin hair supplements available on the market. The most notable ones are Viviscal, Nutrafol, and HR23+.  I use HR23+, and I have been very pleased with the results it has given me. Since taking this supplement, I have noticed much less hair fall, and my strands have gone thicker and stronger.  If you suffer from early stages of thinning hair and you haven't tried multi-vitamin hair supplements, then I would highly recommend you do so.

Tips to tackle baldness

Just remember, there's no cure for male-pattern baldness, but some products and procedures can slow it down, and even prevent it. I have managed to dramatically slow down the rate of hair fall, and that's because I use a range of treatments that work best for me individually.  Results from using treatments of this nature will vary from person to person. 

It also helps hugely if you tackle hair loss as early as possible.  The earlier you treat it, the more chance you will have of getting on top of it.  I really can't stress that point enough.  Also, if you're particularly worried about thinning hair, and you are struggling to find something that works, then I would advise you see a specialist, who might be able to recommend some treatments for you. 

I am not a specialist in hair loss, and all the treatments I use are safe and natural. They are also available to purchase over the counter, with no prescription needed. The natural route is hugely important to me, but if you don't mind going down the medical route, with the potential risks of side-effects, then there are a couple of options available, such as Finasteride and Minoxidil. 

Hair loss is a pretty horrid thing to go through, but it's not something that can't be treated.  Just tackle it early, and don't give up.  If you want your hair for longer, then you'll need to fight for it, and trust me, the fight will be worth it!


Hair surgery seems to be a growing trend with famous footballers, and with an image to uphold, and bags of money to spare, it's easy to see why...

Good or bad, here, we bring you some of the balding footballers who have undergone some type of hair surgery.  Don't underestimate how well some celebs can keep a secret, because a few of these might just surprise you...

Cesc Fabregas

The former Chelsea and Spain midfielder starting receding at the temples when he arrived at Stamford Bridge a few years back. Then, after a short cropped cut, his hairline was evidently filled in, resembling that of his early years at Arsenal. 

Fabregas (above) did well to tackle his receding hairline early, as this gave him the best possible chance of having a successful transplant.

Wesley Sneijder 

Wesley Sneijder appeared to be receding quite badly during the 2013-2014 season, but then his hairline was suddenly fixed after that period. The Dutch play-maker has evidently had work done in and around the frontal area of his scalp, filling in the thinning, and brigning forward the hairline.

The transplant worked a treat because, like Fabregas, the former Inter Milan and Real Madrid player tackled his receding hairline at a relatively early time. 

Wayne Rooney

Ok, so we all know about Wayne Rooney's hair transplant. He couldn't have gone more public with it even if he'd tried! The former England striker was losing his hair in his early 20s, and instead of shaving it off, he went down the surgical route, which proved to be quite effective.

Rooney's hair may not be the thickest, but his hairline has been restored, and his hair does have even coverage over his scalp. We'd imagine Rooney's transplant to be one of the more expensive procedures.

Andros Townsend

This is a interesting one, because Andros Townsend went from literally having very little hair to the most solid hairline you'll ever see, pretty much over night! We suspect the Crystal Palace winger avoided the transplant route and instead opted for micro-pigmentation.

A hair tattoo, or scalp micropigmentation, is a cosmetic tattoo that gives the illusion of a close buzz cut hairstyle on a bald head. The procedure can also be used to conceal the scars from hair transplantation or to make thinning hair seem thicker. This would expalin the perfect hairline!

David Silva

David Silva was suffering from a receding hairline (Norwood 2-3). Then he shaved all his hair off, and what became apparent was the scarring along the frontal part of his hairline, which led many to believe that the Spaniard had undergone hair surgery.

Now we are starting to see the results of his transplant, with thicker hair, and a new, stronger hairline. Silva's transplant is actually one of the better ones we have seen, certainly in recent years.  

Dimitar Berbatov

Dimitar Berbatov was suffering with a receding hairline throughout his time in England with Tottenham, Manchester United, and Fulham. But recently, the Bulgarian had hair surgery, and now his hairline has been thickened and brought forward to its former glory days.

Berbatov's new hair actually looks very good, because he's kept the hairline slightly receded in order to give a natural look. His new, maturing hairline really suits him.
