RANKED: TOP 5 MEN'S MINOXIDIL HAIR GROWTH PRODUCTS FOR A THICKER HEAD OF HAIR
These are the Top 5 Minoxidil Hair Growth Products for Men Looking to Regrow or Thicken Their Head of Hair Within Weeks…
By Daniel Markey
(Men's Health) - Unfortunately, for most men it’s inevitable that their hair will start to thin and their hairline will recede. It’s been happening to me since I was about 22 and it always bothered me. Sure, a bald look, a shaved head can be pulled off, but obviously we’d all love that lion’s mane.
Other than the obvious hair-plugs or the expensive Rogaine, I started researching better ways to activate hair growth that are simply and obviously… EFFECTIVE.
Minoxidil is the industry standard for hair growth, and many companies are releasing new methods of applying and using Minoxidil for the best possible results. Of course there are now dozens upon dozens of hair growth products for men that claim they work, but it’s hard to know what’s actually effective and safe. That’s where we come in. I put my best product reviewers to the test to find the best Minoxidil hair growth products for men that don’t require prescription or invasive surgeries.
Let’s get started…
This is by far our favorite product for activating hair follicles and seeing consistent new growth for a thicker, fuller head of hair. Mane’s Minoxidil Root Activator Foam uses Minoxidil plus 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. We found out about Mane when they offered us a secret 50% discount code SECRET50. We tried the foam for three weeks, applying to thinning areas of our hair after every time we showered. Several of our reviewers noticed significant growth in patchy areas of their hair and thicker follicles. This really is our top recommendation, and encourage anyone who wants a fuller head of hair to order this immediately!
By far, Mane’s Minoxidil Root Activator Foam, is the most effective hair growth product for men on the market.
Overall Value: B+
If you don’t like to fuss with your hair (maybe that’s the problem!) and want a simple way to keep your hair looking thick, Roman offers a oral Minoxidil treatment. While high doses of oral Minoxidil can have strong side effects, the low dose Roman offers is a easy way to boost hair production without any extra hair products or routines. However, because it is a low dose, it may not be as effective as topical treatments like Mane’s Foam.
Overall Value: B+
Musely has been known for some of the best men’s products for hair growth. They’ve really carved themselves a piece of the market and for good reason. They provide an effective product that work really well. The drawback is that it’s not as easy to order as some of the other products on the list. You have to go through a bit of a process and talk to a doctor. So, even if you’re just trying to test the product out, you have to spend some time with it That said, their topical solution offers an effective way to thicken hair in a few months. Definitely would recommend if you can afford it.
Overall Value: C
Though we liked the feel of Happy Head and found average results, we couldn’t ignore that a similar product was more affordable that included essential nutrients and peptides. While finasteride is a nice addition to help boost hair growth, we found Mane’s formula to deliver a healthier, better feeling head of hair.
Overall Value: C
Here’s a really affordable hair growth solution that has mixed results. Minoxidil is known to help prevent hair loss and even in some cases regrow hair. BoselyMD makes an affordable spray you massage into your hair to trigger growth. We saw a mixed bag of effectiveness, but for the price they’re offering it might be worth it to try out. That said, if you want guaranteed results, definitely look toward a product like Mane’s Minoxidil Root Activator Foam.
While we believe we recommended some great products to help stimulate hair growth while giving you a thicker, more even head of hair, we believe Mane’s Minoxidil Root Activator Foam is the absolute best option. We wanted to talk further with our investigative reporter Mark Herring who helped create the rankings list and how he discovered the greatness that is Mane.
Personally, I’m a bit of an anti-product guy. Bar of soap in the shower and some toothpaste. My girlfriend only recently pushed moisturizer on me, haha. It’s not that I don’t believe in any of the stuff (hell, I research and write about it all the time). I just never thought I needed most of it. My skin is fairly clear and never had many issues with acne or anything like that. That said, the one thing that always bothered me was my thinning head of hair. It runs in my family, my dad, brother, and cousins are all bald, so I figured it was my turn, too.
So when I was put on assignment to find some amazing Minoxidil hair growth products, I was happy to test some things out. Unfortunately, not a lot made the cut. Most are foams and washes that are messy and not exactly comfortable. Also, too many products promising 70s shag hair and unstoppable growth. It wasn’t happening.
But then I noticed my best friend, who I trust with my life, started to grow out his hair out and it looked damn solid. Last time I remembered he had some thinning bald spots on the top of his head and was wearing hats almost everywhere.
I asked him what was up and he shot out of his chair and grabbed the bottle of Mane’s Minoxidil Root Activator Foam. He said he tried a few things but this was the only product that he felt like actually delivered. I was skeptical, but when he showed me a photo from like 2 months ago and I was blow away. His hair was definitely thicker and the bald patches were covered up.
I asked him to let me borrow his Foam, but instead he told me to buy my own like a real adult LOL. Luckily he gave me the secret 50% off discount SECRET50. So I ordered two bottles immediately.
I received the package two days later and used as instructed. After you shower, dry off, and apply the activator into your hair. No need to brush it in or anything.. Simple enough. I like simple.
Of course, I looked into the mirror and expected immediate results, but with products like these you got to use them everyday for about three weeks before you notice anything. In the meantime, I wanted to know what made Mane’s Minoxidi Root Activator Foam do what it did.
Minoxidil is a vasodilator, which helps widen blood vessels for better blood flow and circulation. Minoxidil 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 Minoxidil however, was hair growth. After testing, they were able to create a topical cream for balding and hair loss.
One of the main reasons for hair loss and balding is bad blood circulation to the scalp. Minoxidil 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 Minoxidil on a regular basis.
BUT YOU NEED MORE THAN JUST MINOXIDIL
While Minoxidil is very effective, the best way to keep your hair looking great, is by also adding essential peptides and nutrients to stimulate the scalp for ultimate root activation.
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 Minoxidil Root Activator Foam 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:
Best way to start regrowing your hair is to protect the hair you have. Citric Acid helps get rid of ree radicals and toxins on hair and help retain moisture (hydration is HUGE for hair growth)
This is a traditional remedy herb that’s been proven to stimulate blood circulation on the scalp. Blood circulation helps deliver oxygen and essential nutrients to activate roots.
For best results...
it’s encouraged to use the foam along with Mane’s Root Activator Shampoo and Conditioner that includes additional nutrients such as Oriental Arborvitae Leaf Extract, Ginseng Extract, Angelica Extract, Propylene Glycol, Polygonum Multiflorum Extract, Zingiber Officinale and more. All of these ingredients help retain moisture and stimulate growth. It’s pretty wild how many amazing ingredients are loaded just a few products.
So, finally, after 4 weeks, I decided to check if I could see results… and wow! The areas of my hair that were previously patchy and thin began to fill out. Plus my hair felt fuller and stronger. I was simply amazed at how good it looked and felt.
I was officially converted into a Minoxidil Root Activator Foam believer, and I hope you will, too!
