What’s hair loss all about then? We know it can be hard to get a full picture of what’s going on, so we’ll tell it to you straight. Here’s the science behind why guys lose their hair, how our products work, and what you can expect from treatment.
Hair normally grows, falls out, and regrows in a cycle, which can be broken down into four main phases.
The strand of hair grows upwards from the root, with a nourishing blood supply to the follicle. This phase lasts 2–7 years and determines the length of our hair.
The follicle shrinks as it moves away from the blood supply. This phase lasts about 10 days.
The old shrunken follicle rests while a new hair begins to grow behind it. 10–15% of hairs are in this phase at any one time, which lasts around 3 months.
The hair is gradually loosened and the root detaches from the follicle. The strand falls out, and the cycle starts again.
The degree and progression of male pattern hair loss is assessed using the Norwood classification system, which has seven stages. Identifying where you are at on this scale helps determine the correct treatment.

Light recession around the temples
Deeper recession around the temples and crown
Sons treatments work in two main ways. Finasteride blocks DHT, protecting follicles from shrinking and hair strands from thinning. Minoxidil increases blood flow, revitalising shrunken follicles. Our DHT blocking Shampoo enhances the effects of Finasteride, and our Biotin vitamin promotes hair health.
Treating hair loss needn’t be a hassle.
All our products are designed to be easy
to use, as well as effective. Follow this
simple guide to get the best results.
We are invested in the progress of our community.
In a survey conducted to 109 existing Sons customers using the Full Works Plan for over 9 months, this is what we learned.
9.2/10 respondents say their hair loss stopped or they experienced regrowth.
4/5 of respondents noticed an improvement in hair density and quality.
8/10 of respondents felt more confident about their appearance.
It takes some time for changes to become visible. Some men will shed more fine hairs than normal, but this is only temporary.
Hair loss may have considerably slowed or stopped completely. Some people see signs of regrowth, primarily at the crown of the head.
As the medication continues to work, miniaturised hairs will be replaced by thicker healthier hairs which leads to a gradual improvement in hair density over time .
