Hair growth stimulants, beard growth enhancers and treatments. Cutting through the bullshit. What does the science say?
Today we are going to be discussing beard and hair growth stimulants, enhancers, and treatments. We are going to let you know which ones are the best, which ones are a waste of time, and how they work. So here goes.
Firstly we are going to let you know that the easiest way to prevent hair loss is by optimising which hair products you are using to simply maintain the hair you have. There’s no point trying to grow more if you aren’t going to look after what you have.
Using the best treatments will make your hair look fuller and thicker and hide thinning if its an issue for you. If you are like most men over 30 your hair has already started thinning. Using hair products rich in vitamins and natural oils is the best way to achieve healthy hair.
Men’s hair products that contain Shea butter, Cocoa butter, Mango butter, and jojoba, almond, and sandalwood nut oil are best. They protect the hair and keep the scalp hydrated. Avoiding artificial ingredients will help you maintain a healthy set of hair. We recommend Black Magic Organic hair pomade as a daily treatment for a gentle natural product that has all the vital ingredients to give your hair more colour and sheen while keeping the skin on your scalp hydrated.
Now lets get into it. Here’s our 5 most powerful and effective recommendations for regrowing and stimulating hair growth, and treatments to reverse baldness that have scientific evidence proving they work. Each recommendation has the applicable scientific study linked for you to fact check.
