This year, the company went big with Thick Head, a breakthrough brand poised to turn the men’s hair loss market on its head. Featuring proprietary formulas, an FDA-approved regrowth ingredient, targeted application, and expertise from the team behind hair care brand Keranique, Thick Head is set to be a true game changer in the category with a 2X-DHT-Complex, a proprietary blend of known DHT-fighters, and an ingredient that helps reduce DHT (dihydrotestosterone) on the scalp, to attack hair loss head on. Using Thick Head products on a consistent basis is the only move to win the fight against DHT, said the company. The line of men’s hair care products launched earlier this year at CVS, Rite Aid and online at www.thickhead.com.
