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.
