$11 / Birchbox Man

3. Hims DHT Blocker Shampoo

Birchbox says: This shampoo is formulated to reduce hair’s levels of DHT (the hormone that causes hair loss).

What it is: The Balding Guy’s Shampoo

Why we love it: Clinical studies have shown that DHT can lead to hair loss. Somehow, this blocks those hormones and simultaneously keeps your locks fresh and clean. The jury is still out on whether this product truly affects hair retention, but it’s worth a shot.

Reviews say: “My hair is thinning a little, but not so much that I’m too worried. I started using a DHT blocker shampoo just to be preventative. I can’t tell if this one is doing anything yet, but I wouldn’t expect to see results for several months anyway. It’s a little drying, even for shampoo, but not bad and it’s a solid product all around.” - Andrew
