  • hair loss in guys is usually inhereited. check his family tree hairloss in guys later in age also indicated that they are having blood/heart problems. you hubby is quite young, so??? have him checked out by the dr.. high blood pressure effects a lot of people at any age. Stress can do it too. check your shampoo...he may be having a reaction to that. there are a lot of things that cause hair loss. plus he is so young...could be hormone levels are down. guys go thru that as well, they just dont make as big of a fuss as we! you can massage his head & lightly scratch it to stimulate the blood flow which feed the hair folicule which produces healthier hair & hair growth. plus he will love the attention & help relieve the stress. plus encourage him to "brush" his hair, he has short hair so heavy brushing will stimulate the scalp with out damaging the hair shaft. get a good brush with med to soft brissels.

  • My husband has tried a lot of stuff and his hair kept getting thinner. We were both worried about the warnings on some of the products he could use.

    We recently found hair care products that have botanical ingredients that help block DHT and stimulate circulation in the scalp. Everything is applied in the shower which makes it easier.

    My husband is using both but it is a little too early to tell. You can learn more about the products at

    You can order at

    Let me know if you would be interested in me sending you samples.

  • Try Nioxin. It has a 3 part system. Technically 4. Cleanser, Scalp Therapy, and Scalp Treatment. Using them all together will do the job.
    They have 8 different numbers to choose
    Anywhere between Normal/Thin looking Hair, noticeably thinning or Thick. Coarse hair that is Chemically enhanced.

  • Rogaine works.

  • My clients with thinning hair use the Nioxin System. It coats the hair for thicker hair and cleanses the scalp to prevent more hairloss and allows new growth to come through. They also have daily vitamins with their system that a friend of mine swears by.
