I get it, losing your hair is just part of getting older for a lot of people, men in particular. But I have to admit that when I first started noticing my hair was getting a little thinner, and growing a little slower, it wasn’t a good day.

I figured there were two choices, I could accept that my hair was going and start wearing a lot more hats and shorter hairstyles, and maybe eventually just shave my head entirely, or I could try and stop the hair loss in the first place.

Honestly, I was skeptical of anti-hair loss products at first. After all, with so many men going bald as they get older, it seemed a little silly to trust that any product would help reverse the process. Still, if there was something, I could do to keep my hair, I wanted to try.

After switching to anti-hair loss shampoo, I’m shocked.

Before I could get any results, I needed to pick some products to try. I decided I wanted to take a milder approach at first and opted to use anti-hair loss shampoo instead of hair loss products that need to be applied separately like Rogaine.

I wanted something that could be part of my regular routine without taking any extra time or effort to use.

But I also knew that I didn’t want to try a low-quality product. If I was going to give anti-hair loss shampoo a chance, I knew I needed to pick products that might really work, not the cheapest bottle at the drugstore.

I landed on two products, Clinical Effects Hair Therapy Shampoo ($16.66) and Shapiro MD’s Natural Kit DHT blocking hair care kit (79.95).

Why these two?

Because both seemed to address the root cause of hair loss, poor hair follicle function and they addressed the problem naturally, but with two different approaches. Since I was trying both, I figured that I could use the products together, wash once with each shampoo and finish with the Shapiro MD conditioner and leave-in product.

Even using two different products, this made for a simple routine that didn’t take a lot of time or effort, one of my main goals. For now, I’m sticking with this plan, but I may stick to one product or the other in the future.

Our #1 Pick - Clinical Effects Hair Therapy

  • Science Backed Ingredients.
  • 90-Day Money Back Guarantee.
  • Develop Thicker, Fuller Hair
  • Made In An FDA Licensed Lab.
  • Works For Both Men and Women.

Why I Chose These Shampoos

Clinical Effects Hair Therapy Shampoo includes active ingredients like Biotin, AnaGain™, and Baicapil™, which all work together to strengthen your hair and rejuvenate your hair follicles to produce stronger hair and maintain longer growth cycles.

Shapiro MD’s Natural Kit also uses natural ingredients from plant sources, but it works by targeting DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) which can damage your hair follicles and preventing it from causing problems. It uses Saw Palmetto, Caffeine, and beneficial compounds derived from green tea.

The two sounded like a fantastic combination because DHT is one of the main causes of hair loss in men, and protecting hair follicles and strengthening hair can help it look like you have more hair and healthier hair, even when it’s thinning.

Between the two products, I had two high-quality shampoos, and one conditioner and leave-in hair care products. Both shampoos felt really good, they were cleansing, easy to use, and let my hair soft and healthy-looking after I washed. The conditioner was incredibly moisturizing, and I didn't have to use much to get good results.

I was more skeptical of the leave-in product included in my hair care kit, worried that it would leave my hair stiff or make it look greasy. Fortunately, it was light, easy to apply, and didn’t make my hair look stiff or like I was using too much product.

Our #1 Pick – Shapiro MD Shampoo

  • 3 Natural DHT Blocking Ingredients.

Anti-hair loss products all pretty much come with a warning that you won’t see any real results for a couple of months.

That’s why I was surprised when I started noticing changes.

My hair started looking thicker and fuller within a couple of weeks. I noticed that it looked healthier and thought that I was starting to see real growth within a month. I started using the Clinical Effects shampoo a little more than the Shapiro MD just because my hair felt a little healthier when I stuck to just the Clinical Effects.

I didn’t have any huge bald spots when I got started, just some thinness and enough hair loss I noticed it styling my hair in the mornings, so I didn’t have a big patch to point to and say there’s hair where there wasn’t hair before! But I did notice when my hair looked fuller and had more volume.

A couple more weeks down the line, I noticed something else.

I needed to get my hair cut more often.

I’ll take that as proof positive. These products made a big difference in my hair loss and helped get my confidence back. I know it’s all in my head, but man, there’s something about a full head of hair that just makes you feel a little bit younger, a little bit stronger.

The more I use these shampoos the more I lean toward Clinical Effects as being the best choice for my hair, which surprised me since it’s the more affordable shampoo too! Everyone’s hair is different, but this seems to be the right option for my hair and correcting my hair loss.

I can’t tell you if it’ll work for you, but I can tell you one thing: I’m not going back!
