Many men experience severe hair loss as autumn begins to kick in, so we ask: what is seasonal shedding and how can it be prevented? 

Hair shedding often occurs in autumn season, but it doesn't usually last longer than a couple of months. It's normal to shed between 50 and 100 hairs a day. When the body sheds significantly more hairs every day, a person has excessive hair shedding. The medical term for this condition is telogen effluvium.

Seasonal hair loss is actually very common, and research suggests that most of us have slightly higher rates of telogen during the month of July. Telogen is known as a resting phase for the hair follicle, which means that the hair is extra prone to shedding and falling out. The second most common time for shedding is during the month of October.

What is a normal rate of shedding?

Most people have about 100,000 hairs on their heads and lose around 100 to 125 hairs per day. This amount can increase substantially during the phase of shedding.  One can lose up to five times the amount of hair in the peak of shedding phase, therefore the process should be very noticeable.

How can shedding be stopped? 

Luckily, the shedding process is not permanent, and so after 6-8 weeks your hair should go back to its normal state.  Unfortunately for hair loss sufferers (male pattern baldness), hair shedding can be quite damaging, and in many cases the amount of hairs lost are not retrievable. Men who are going through any form of alopecia should take the right steps to try and prevent the rate of hair fall and increase the rate of hair growth.

What treatments can I use for shedding? 

Hair shedding can be treated with a number of different options.  A good hair care routine should be an essential part of your autumn grooming plan, so be prepared to add a few products to your current routine.  Multi-vitamin hair supplements like Viviscal, Nutrafol and HR23+ are excellent treatments to use all year round, but especially during shedding season. They offer your hair all the right nutrients and minerals for better hair growth and less hair fall.  Hair thickening shampoos and conditioners may sound great, but they tend to be ineffective.  However, the topical solution minoxidil could be worth considering if you are willing to risk the potential side-effects.

When will I experience the most hair growth?

Humans are much like animals in so many aspects of life, and hair loss is no exception. In a similar fashion to animals and their fur, we tend to experience the best rate of hair growth throughout the colder months of the year, to keep us warm.  This is why many of us tend to shed more during the hotter period of the year, in order to keep cool.


It started with a problem... according to Mark Helvadjian, founder of British male grooming brand SCRUBD, who was unable to find a premium, all-natural bar of soap made specifically for men.

Working with England’s top artisanal soap makers and skin care scientists, Mark began his quest to solve this problem, sourcing natural ingredients, mixing his own essential oils, hosting scent testing sessions with friends and family, finally leading to the creation of his very own range of handcrafted soaps. SCRUBD launches exclusively in Harvey Nichols nationwide in November 2017 and incorporates an Energising skincare range, Anti-Ageing skincare range and organic triple-milled soap blocks. The entire range has been ethically handcrafted for men aged 35-54 who want to up their game and ‘master mid-life masculinity’. Combining age-old artisanal methods with cutting-edge techniques, SCRUBD uses the finest, all-natural extracts, botanicals, vitamins and essential oils to create effective, natural grooming products, leaving skin looking and feeling youthful, and leaving men feeling primed for more.

Mark, who is a master on the modern-day soap scene, embodies what he calls the ‘SCRUBD Man’ and longed to develop a product that appealed to a new frontier of man labelled the ‘Menopausal Man.’ “Middle aged men, like me, are starting to scrub up and up their grooming game. They want to take care of their skin with simple, quick and result-focused routines. With the pressures of modern life and signs of ageing creeping in, I wanted to create a grooming range specifically for this often forgotten tribe of man.” Mark Helvadjian, SCRUBD Founder SCRUBD’s mission is simple, to help men feel great in their skin. When men feel great in their skin they can master anything, leaving a unique mark in every area of their lives.

Jacks of London confirmed as best barber in UK after historic win

Jacks of London has been confirmed as the UK’s top barber after winning the ultimate accolade, Male Grooming Salon of the Year, at the prestigious British Hairdressing Business Awards, hosted by the doyenne of the grooming industry, the 135-year-old Hairdressers Journal.

Official barber to the Aegon Tennis Tournament and personal male grooming specialist to scores of the UK’s top sports people, Jacks of London has built a formidable business reputation over the past 23 years. It’s a major contributor to the booming barbering industry that feeds into the £7 billion UK grooming market. Few newcomers have been able to match the service provided at Jacks, which has over the years grown stronger and stronger through experience and investment in the skill of its team.

At the huge event hosted by comedian Rob Beckett in central London on 11th September, HJ’s executive director, Jayne Lewis-Orr, called Jacks of London’s win ‘truly well-deserved’

Male grooming is enjoying a real boom period, but that means it can be harder than ever to stand out and be noticed,’ said Jayne. ‘For businesses to do well and prove their point of difference, they have to be a cut above – which all of the finalists in this category really are. A truly well-deserved win for Jacks of London, who are consistently expanding, innovating and moving the male grooming industry forward.

The energy that drives Jacks, with stores in London and the South East, comes from its prime focus on clients, providing an extensive range of services in addition to brilliant barbering, plus seven-day, extended opening hours, so its highly trained barbers are on hand whenever it suits clients.

Jacks of London founder and MD Sue Whitehead, who was there with some of her team to collect the award, said: ‘This is an amazing win for our team, who work so hard to be the best they can. Our clients always come first, and that constantly drives us all to innovate, to lead in trends and technique, to mix the traditional with the new and deliver it all in a truly man-friendly space.

Can this potent new pill help prevent hair loss in men and women?

The hair loss treatment market is worth an estimated £2 billion, and that figure is set to double over the next three to five years. The latest statistics show that up to six in ten men will suffer from some form of hair loss by the time they reach the age of 40. It is little surprise to see an increasing amount of men investing heavily in treatments for baldness.

You can find a wide variety of hair loss treatments that vary in different forms. The most common forms include topical solutions such as serums and shampoos, as well as supplements and even hair transplantation surgery.  Seeking an effective solution for male pattern baldness can be tricky, especially when you need to consider your budget and your lifestyle.

Hair health supplements have become hugely popular with men and women battling alopecia and thinning hair.  Many men turn to natural hair supplements as a safe alternative to the FDA approved pill, Finasteride (AKA Propecia), in order to avoid the risks of harsh side-effects.  Hair supplements seem to lead the way in performance, and they are now becoming more affordable in an ever growing market place.

What are the leading hair supplements?

Some of the leading hair supplements on the market include Nutrafol, TRX2, Viviscal, and HR23+. Results will vary with each individual, and all supplements will have their pros and cons in most cases. However, with the competitiveness of the sector, one supplement in particular seems to be standing out from the pack and gaining some promising reviews from male and female users.  HR23+, developed in 2014 and officially brought to market in 2015, is the fastest growing supplement of its kind in the UK and throughout Europe.  But just what is this popular pill and how effective can it be for preventing hair fall and promoting hair growth?

What is HR23+

HR23+ hair health supplement is an oral hair growth pill that is made from 23 key active ingredients that can help prevent hair loss and thinning hair. This supplement is safe and free of any side-effects. This latest scientific breakthrough formula contains the popular anti-hair loss ingredient – Saw Palmetto.  Functional tests prove that Saw Palmetto can inhibit the formation of DHT.  The 23 key ingredients in this supplement are: Retinol, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Thiamine HCL, Riboflavin, Vitamins B-1 & B-2, Nicotinic Amide, Folic Acid, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Zinc, Copper, Choline, Cyclohexane, Para-Aminobenzoic Acid (PABA), L-Cysteine, Silicon Dioxide, Dimethyl Sulfone (MSM), Ginkgo Biloba, Saw Palmetto, Pygeum Africanum, Green Tea, Grape Seed. 

How does HR23+ actually work? 

This carefully considered formula caters for the production of tyrosine, which is important in the maintenance of hair strands and the cells of hair follicles. Vitamin E helps build capillaries and improves the blood flow to the scalp, thus encouraging healthy hair growth, combined with the addition of the B vitamin, inositol, which can speed the rate of hair growth along with other B vitamins that stimulate the process for many of us who are deficient in this nutrient, especially vegans and vegetarians. The hair and nail growth agent, biotin, compliments the DHT-blocking property, saw palmetto - a key combination designed to reduce the pattern of hair fall and increase the rate of hair growth.

Vitamin B5 can effectively get vital nutrients to the hair follicle; strengthening it and improving its function. The key combination of choline and inositol work together to form lecithin, a lipid that is needed to form hair cells. Choline helps increase the effectiveness of inositol to protect hair follicle membranes. Silicon dioxide and ginkgo biloba are excellent ingredients that help increase blood circulation, which can stimulate blood flow to the scalp and encourage the growth and maintenance of hair cells. Dimethyl Sulphone has become a popular supplement for the overall function of hair follicles.  Although HR23+ is not a cure for baldness, if treated early, this winning supplement can provide an effective solution for men who are concerned about their hair.

Who should use HR23+?

HR23+ should be used by male or female suffers of early stages of hair loss (Norwood Scale 2-4). Users of this supplement tend to be men aged 21-50 and women 40-50.

What can I realistically expect from taking HR23+?

HR23+ is specifically designed to treat people that suffer from early stages of pattern baldness. Taking these tablets can increase your chances of preventing alopecia and in some cases can generate new hair cells. Results will vary with each individual, but if you tackle hair loss at an early stage then HR23+ can at least slow down the process and extend your period with a full head of hair.

Going by the ingredients and the early reviews of HR23+, this supplement should definitely be considered for sufferers of early stages of hair loss and thinning hair. This supplement has the potential to slow down the rate of hair fall, giving you better peace of mind and an increase in confidence.

HR23+ sells at a RRP of £49.90 per bottle (one month supply), which is about right for a premium hair loss treatment.  For best results, take HR23+ for a minimum period of three months and see how you get on.  A good way to judge the effectiveness of this tablet is to analyse the amount of hair you find on your pillow each morning, or in the shower.

YouTube sensation, Christian Guzman, has created an energy drink with minimal calories, 200mg of caffeine, a resealable lid, and a taste that will make you re-evaluate what an energy drink could and should taste like.

That said, he's taken this product one step further by successfully creating the most premium bottle on the energy drink market.  Priced slightly higher than its competitiors, UpEnergy is contained in a premium bottle made out of a completely reusable, dishwasher safe, BPA-free, Grade-A aluminium material.

The combination of this formula and a reusable bottle gives Guzman full confidence in his product. They also offer 100% of your money back if you do not like the flavour. 

What does it taste like? 

UpEnergy tastes and looks almost identical to the already popular silver Monster energy drink, with the exception of a slight aftertaste, perhaps. UpEnergy contains very similar ingredients to the Monster drink, which leads us to believe that this is where they got their base idea from. 

Is UpEnergy worth almost twice the price of your standard Monster energy drink? We think not. But it could be worth purchasing UpEnergy at least once, as the bottle is reusable, and you'll be bagging yourself a decent product, effectively.
