Hair: how to keep it and then what to do with it.
Maintain the flow. “Around the age of 30, about 30 percent of men will experience genetic hair loss. By the age of 50, it’s about 50 percent,” says Dr. Jeff Donovan, president of the Canadian Hair Loss Foundation. The gold standard for treatment is finasteride (oral medication) and Minoxidil (topical), but newer treatments like platelet-rich plasma—which involves drawing blood, centrifuging it, extracting blood growth factors and injecting them into the scalp—are also effective and sound infinitely cooler.
Work the flow. Products shouldn’t make your life more complicated. The latest include their purpose right in the name, so you won’t confuse styling cream and face lotion ever again.
