How Important is Your Hair to You?
This is the question we posed to men across the country this winter. While most men would like to keep their hair for as long as possible, we wanted to get to the root of it (yep, we went there) and try to understand what they’re currently doing to keep their hair.
60% of men, ages 25-44, that are in relationships have used their female significant other’s hair products in hopes it would make their hair thicker. And 41% of men, ages 25-34, have spent at least $100 a month on hair products.

But with 2 out of 3 men experiencing male pattern baldness by the age of 35, we also had to ask what they’d do to keep their hair.
37% of men, ages 25-44, would sacrifice alcohol for a fuller head of hair and 11%, would get a face tattoo. Oh, and of the men who said they smoked marijuana, 53%, ages 25-44, would stop if doctors discovered a link between smoking and hair loss (fear not though, that link does not exist).

We also asked a few harder questions around hair and relationships. While bald can certainly be beautiful—and the majority of our bald respondents told us they identified with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson—we know that not everyone believes that.
In fact, it’s that lack of confidence in “bald being beautiful” that led some men to cover up their hair loss at work and in relationships. Among the men who admitted to covering up a receding hairline to impress people at work, 60% are ages 25-44. And of the men that felt they lost out on a date due to their lack of hair, 53% are between the ages of 25-44.

The good news for all the men out there is that there are options. You can choose to embrace hair loss or keep your hair. if you choose to go bald, remember, that’s what the Rock did...and we think we can all agree that he’s doing pretty OK. And if you decide you’d like to keep your hair, the treatment options are simple, effective, and affordable.
