‘Does Men’s Hair Tonic Help Fight Hair Loss?’

HairlossANSWERS - Click to Submit Your Query to Our Hair Loss Experts

hair-tonicName: Will

Question: Please help! See picture – is this hair tonic good for my hair? Fighting hair loss

Answer: Hi, Will. No, hair tonic won’t help with hair loss I’m afraid. It is purely a styling product.

Hair tonic was popular in the 1950s and 60s and is starting to become fashionable again for men’s hair styling. It should be used with caution, however. Because hair tonic traditionally contains some form of grease, which is what helps to hold the hair in place, it is important to use it sparingly and to wash your hair frequently between applications. This is because the greasy deposits may otherwise build up on your scalp, potentially causing scalp irritation. Healthy hair growth requires good scalp health so if you bear these pointers in mind, you should be fine – just don’t expect the tonic to stop male pattern baldness.

If you are looking for ways to prevent hair loss or stabilise existing thinning and regrow hair, there are two clinically-proven hair loss treatments available for this purpose. These are finasteride 1mg and minoxidil and these can be further combined with various hair growth boosters.

Should you choose to have an assessment from one of Belgravia’s hair loss specialists, recommendations for the best-suited treatments will be provided to you as part of a plan which is tailored to your specific level and pattern of shedding.
