Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Dad Central Consulting for Viviscal. I received product samples and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
I think everyone knows a man in their life who is experiencing either hair thinning or hair loss. For me, I knew at a young age I'd probably lose my hair earlier in life than I wanted to. My dad has a little hair above his ears and on the lower part of the back of his head. I began losing my hair very early in high school. I was a little bit embarrassed by that and had hair cuts that left the bangs long enough to cover my ever-growing forehead. My 7 year old son has pointed out in looking at our wedding pictures that I had hair. My brother also is starting to see a receding hairline, but not as much as myself and my dad.
I currently have about the same amount of hair as my dad. My hair has pretty much evacuated the top of my head, although I do have what I refer to as fuzz on the top of my head. It just never gets long enough to actually be called hair. I keep my hair trimmed as short as I can with a trimmer because it looks really funny if I let it grow out. I've even considered shaving to the skin just so it doesn't look so weird. My wife doesn't seem to mind my hair loss, though, and I've pretty much accepted it. When I see older men with full heads of hair, I do get jealous of that.
There's something about a man with a full head of hair that makes him appear more knowledgeable or maybe just younger. And in the movies, you always see the women running their fingers through a man's hair. My wife will run her hands over my head, but there's really no hair to run her fingers through. I wouldn't say I feel less attractive, but have aspired for a full head of hair. I've never really considered putting money into getting my hair back though.
Viviscal is now producing two new products: Viviscal Man and Viviscal Hair Filler Fibers. Viviscal Man is formulated to nourish thinning hair and promote existing hair grown from within. This is a tablet that men can take twice a day for a minimum of 3-6 months. I've been trying these and they are very easy to swallow and don't have a funky taste. You can buy Viviscal Man at Walgreen's, Duane Reade, and Rite Aid, along with Viviscal's website for $49.99.
Viviscal Hair Filler Fibers are a solution for last minute touch ups. The Hair Filler Fibers contain microscopic, electrostatically charged fibers, which stick to the hair and create a volumizing appearance while instantly making thinning hair look thicker and fuller. I have my hair cut really short right now, so I haven't tried the filler fibers yet. Now through July, you can get a 10% discount at Walgreens.com using promo code "VIVISCALMAN".
