The best shampoos for hair loss in men

De beste shampoos tegen haaruitval bij mannen

Hair loss is something that affects almost all men. For some it is at the age of 60, but for others it starts somewhere in their 20s. Of course you are not waiting for that at that moment. You can always lose your wild hair later in life.

Hair loss can have several causes. For example, heredity can play a role, but lifestyle, hormones, stress, wrong products, etc. also play a role. But once you get to the root cause, is there a cure? Of course. There are quite a few shampoos on the market that specialize in combating hair loss. Whether it works, what the effect is and what the differences are with a normal shampoo , we have of course selected for you!

What is the difference with a normal shampoo?

Let's start with the purpose of these shampoos. The purpose of a normal shampoo is to clean your hair. Dirt and excess oil is cleaned from your hair. The purpose of a shampoo against hair loss is that in addition to cleaning your hair, it also gives your hair the right nutrients to prevent hair loss in men.

Normal shampoos also contain nutrients. At least, if you use a natural and high-quality product. For example, volume shampoos often have certain proteins to make your hair look fuller and healthier. But a hair growth shampoo will not only clean your hair, but also actually stimulate your hair growth and stop or at least slow down your hair loss. Therefore, really look for an anti-hair loss shampoo. That way, your hair not only looks fuller, but actually becomes fuller.

Which ingredients are important?

Yes, we're going to get to the point. The big question is, of course, what exactly is in a shampoo against hair loss. The range is of course increasing and there are also more and more studies that come up with results. We will list the important ingredients for you. Always filter the ingredients list of the products you want to buy!

  • Minoxidil: promotes hair growth and prevents hair loss
  • Trioxidil: strengthens the hair follicles
  • Nanoxidil: a molecule specially developed to combat hair loss
  • Baicapil: This combination of 3 plants increases cellular energy and activates the follicular stem cells
  • Capixyl: improves ECM proteins for better hair anchoring with fuller hair as a result
  • Redensyl: stimulates cell metabolism for better hair growth
  • Procapil: a combination of 3 active substances clinically proven to stop hair loss and stimulate hair growth
  • Niacin: also known as vitamin B3, stimulates blood flow to your scalp so that nutrients reach the hair better
  • Caffeine: counteracts DHT (a hormone that damages hair follicles) so that your hair grows faster and becomes longer and stronger
  • DHT blockers: counteracts DHT, making your hair healthier and stronger
  • Piroctone olamine: has an antimicrobial effect. Prevents fungi and bacteria, giving your scalp space to absorb nutrients
  • Procyanidin or ketoconazole: works against DHT and will therefore promote hair growth.
  • Biotin: a vitamin involved in protein growth processes that ensure healthy and strong hair.
  • Collagen: This protein gives structure to the blood vessels around the hair follicles and plays an important role in the production of hair follicles.
  • Ginseng: this ancient natural product promotes blood flow, which ensures faster hair growth.
  • Iron: Helps red blood cells carry oxygen to your scalp. This promotes hair growth and inhibits hair loss.

Which ingredients do you want to avoid?

The ingredients list is extremely important if you are looking for a good shampoo against hair loss. In addition to good ingredients, you also have ingredients that can cause hair loss. So always make sure you avoid the following ingredients!

  • SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate): has a very aggressive effect and will dry out and affect your scalp. This sometimes causes hair loss.
  • Parabens: a collective name for a large group of chemical junk that can cause scalp problems (and eventually hair loss).
  • Phthalates: disrupts the hormones that stimulate hair growth.

These chemical assassins affect your scalp and will strip important oils from your scalp. Hair growth can be affected and your scalp can become very irritated. You certainly don't want this, so rather avoid them.

What effect does a shampoo against hair loss have?

We can always be brief about that: it differs per person. It also depends on the cause of your hair loss. If it's your lifestyle, you really should address it first. Nevertheless, these shampoos will help you, but the main thing is the size of the results. Well, having said that, it has been scientifically proven that most of the ingredients mentioned above do have an effect. Don't give up immediately after 2 tries. Some ingredients have a minimum shelf life of 3 months! Good things take time. But in general you can expect the following:

  • Hair loss is inhibited or even stopped
  • Scalp becomes healthier
  • Hair becomes stronger and longer
  • More hairs begin to grow
  • Thicker head of hair
