Best Shampoo for Men

Best Shampoo for Men

Most of the information available on shampoos are for women. Nothing wrong with that. But there is surprisingly little information out there that talk about the best shampoo for men.

It’s there, but you need to look for it. And on this website, we want to give you the most comprehensive overview of what is out there. So an article on men’s best shampoo should be there.

Best Shampoo for Men versus Best Shampoo for Women

What is the difference between men’s hair and women’s hair? Or is there none? Here are some of the differences listed:

  • Men refuse to pay more than $10 for a hair cut; Women can spend a fortune (not all of course, but yes, women do spend significantly more than men).
  • About 60% of all men lose their hair. For women it percentage is much much lower.
  • Women’s hair grows faster than men’s.
  • Women’s hair is generally thinner; men’s hair is usually thicker and more resistant to influences from the environment (like UV light and air pollution).
  • Finally, there are more hair care products for women on the market than for men. Hence this article.

You can see that there are a number of differences when it comes to being a man versus being a woman. Nothing new here, right?

According to one source, the US alone spends $7 billion on cosmetics. How much of that is spent on shampoos is not totally clear, but it will be significant.

Add to this the ever-increasing market for men’s cosmetics (including shampoos), and it is no wonder that companies are targeting men specifically on this as well.

However, fundamentally, a shampoo for a man is no different than for women. Others might beg to differ, but this is our opinion.

On the other side, since there are so many cosmetic products and shampoos made and targeted for men, we’ll list the best shampoo for men here as well.
