What Will Help Your Hair Grow Faster and Thicker Than Ever Before? Between Minox and Mane’s Root Activator Shampoo, There Are a Few Big Differences. Here’s a Helpful Guide.

(Men's Lifestyle) Like most adult men, you’ve probably worried about hair loss. In fact, you probably see a little hair loss every day. Unfortunately, most of us are not lucky enough to naturally keep our mane past the age of thirty. It can start as early as 15, and it can take up to 20 years to be completely bald. Two-thirds of men are either bald or develop balding patterns by age 60.

Unlike our grandfathers and maybe even fathers, we’re lucky to be presented with solutions that aren’t tacky toupees or expensive and unconvincing hair plugs. There are quite a few solutions to hair growth that any man can start today. Of course, the only trouble now is that there are too many options.

However, one of the most popular and common chemicals that can prevent hair loss is Minoxidil (also known as Rogaine). But, if you’re concerned about the types of chemicals you’re putting on your body, Minoxidil may not be the best option for you. Thankfully, more natural and successful products can deliver the same results (often for less cost, too!).


Minox is a vasodilator, which helps widen blood vessels for better blood flow and circulation.  Minox originally aimed to help cure ulcers, but was deemed unsuccessful. Eventually, it was approved to treat high blood pressure. One of the major side effects of Minox however, was hair growth. After testing, they were able to create a topical cream for balding and hair loss. 

Minox requires extra labor everyday to maintain a healthy head of hair.

One of the main reasons for hair loss and balding is bad blood circulation to the scalp. Minox is able to trigger blood flow by widening the blood vessels on the scalp, which deliver oxygen and much-needed nutrients to the hair follicle. 

Many men and women have experienced great results by using Minox on a regular basis. However, it’s important to note that Minox does have side effects.


Minox is still a topical chemical that, when applied to the skin, can deliver side effects along with potential hair growth.

Here are some of the most common side effects: 

  • Scalp and Skin Irritation
  • Lowered Blood Pressure
  • Headaches or Migraines
  • Irregular Heart Rate
  • Changes in Hair Color and Texture
  • Temporary Hair Loss

An Alternative to Minox: Root Activator Shampoo

To avoid the harsher side effects of Minox, it’s best to look for alternative methods to increase blood flow to the scalp. Mane’s Root Activator Shampoo is one of the most successful examples of this. Rather than using Minox as the main ingredient, Mane’s Root Activator Shampoo uses a special formula of nutrients and peptides to condition thinning hair strands to become thicker and stronger, while also boosting blood circulation to the scalp to reactivate root hairs for additional growth. 

It’s also more affordable than any prescription and over-the-counter Minox product, especially after you use the secret 50% discount code SECRET50. We tried it for six weeks, using everyday along with their companion conditioner. Several of our reviewers noticed significant growth in patchy areas of their hair and thicker follicles.

Unlike many Minox products, Mane's Root Activator stays within your usual routine. It's recommended to use like a normal shampoo, every two or three days, within results beginning within three to six weeks.

A combination of essential oils and nutrients help not only help block DHT hormones, but strengthen hair and activate roots that have stopped growing or never had the energy to grow. 


It’s quite simple, just as our bodies can exert less energy when we get older (remember staying up all night in your twenties?), our hair follows a similar pattern. When old hairs fall out, typically a new root is triggered and energy is spent building a new hair follicle. However, the older we get, the less energy is distributed to these roots. That’s when thinning and balding occur. 

Many of the hair follicles in our skin are never stimulated enough for the root to activate and push the potential hair from under the skin. Often it’s a result of not enough nutrients and energy at the top layers of our skin where we need it. 


The key to a fuller head of hair starts with activating your roots, and that’s exactly what Mane’s Root Activator Shampoo aims to do. Mane uses a Hair Growth Complex that’s filled with amazing ingredients to stimulate blood flow to the skin while strengthening hair follicles. Some of those essential ingredients include:

Licorice Root Extract

This is a super powerful growth extract that many forget about. If the mission is to stimulate the scalp to activate growth, this is the ingredient to do it. Bringing blood flow and oxygen to the scalp to help thickening while introducing new hair to your head. 

Sesame Seed Extract

To help strengthen and nourish the hair, Mane uses Sesame Extract. It’s filled with nutrients and peptides that keep your hair healthy while protecting it from outside toxins and free radicals. 

Citric Acid

Of course, you also need some elements that work like a shampoo! Citric Acid is great for bringing the pH balance of your hair down while reducing frizz and tangles.

The Root Activator Shampoo also includes Propylene Glycol, Ginger Root Powder, Ginger Root Oil and about 10 other natural ingredients that help retain moisture and stimulate growth. It’s pretty wild how many amazing ingredients are loaded into this shampoo. 


After 6 weeks, Mane's Root Activator Shampoo will begin to show results! The areas of your hair that were previously patchy and thin will began to fill out. Plus, your hair will feet fuller and stronger.
