RANKED: TOP 5 MEN'S HAIR GROWTH PRODUCTS THAT WENT VIRAL ON TIKTOK
These Hair Growth Products Went Viral on TikTok... But Which Ones Work?
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 Rogaine, I started researching better ways to activate hair growth that are simply and obviously… EFFECTIVE.
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.
Recently, I turned to TikTok to see if I could get some real life testimonials of products that worked. TikTok is a great place to find recommendations from experts and customers who want to share their experiences.
So I put my best product reviewers to the test to find the most viral TikTok 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 Root Activator Spray 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. We found out about Mane when they offered us a secret 50% discount code SECRET50 for a 3-pack. We tried the spray for three weeks, spraying onto 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 Root Activator Spray, is the most effective hair growth product for men on the market.
Overall Value: B+
This is a serum you leave rub into your head and leave in all day to stimulate growth on the scalp. This is an effective serum with a few drawbacks. It’s quite oily and will leave your hair feeling a little greasy and shiny. But if your hair is dry, it may be a plus. The price is quite high for something that had similar or less effectiveness than Mane’s Root Activator Spray. That said, it smells good and we did see results after about a month and a half of use.
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
We’ve seen some good results from Revita’s shampoo. It’s formulated to maintain scalp vitality and prevent future loss. While it’s a great companion to something like Mane’s Root Activator Spary, this shampoo is definitely more for prevention than it is for regrowth. We recommend using something like this in companion with something else for sure. It’s definitely helpful, but won’t show great results by itself.
Overall Value: C
Here’s a really affordable hair growth solution that has mixed results. Particle's Hair Revival Kit is known to help prevent hair loss and even in some cases regrow hair. It's an affordable foam 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 Root Activator Spray.
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 Root Activator Spray 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 hair growth products, I was happy to test some things out. Unfortunately, not a lot made the cut. 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 Root Actovator Spray. 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 Root Activator Spray, but instead he told me to buy my own like a real adult LOL. Luckily he gave me the secret 50% off discount SECRET50 for a 3-pack. So I ordered them immediately.
I received the package two days later and used as instructed. After you shower, dry off, and spray 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 Root Activator Spray do what it did.
A combination of essential oils and nutrients help not only strengthen hair but 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 Spray aims to do. Mane’s 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)
Oriental Arborvitae Leaf Extract
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.
This helps stimulate dermal cell growth, it both promotes the growth of new hair while strengthening thinning and damaged hair. Really amazing ingredient right here…
The Root Activator Spray also includes 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 into this spray.
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 Root Activator Spray believer, and I hope you will, too!
