For most guys, hair loss really is one of the worst things you can go through, and so it is only natural to want to put a stop to the balding process as safely and effectively as possible.

As part of National Hair Loss Awareness Month, we've put together a list of eight must-try products that can help slow down and stop hair loss, while helping you maintain stronger, thicker and healthier hair growth. These aren't cures for baldness, but they can certainly make a difference to your hair...
