Thinning Hair: How To Approach The Topic With Male Clients

Maggie Mulhern | April 5, 2017 | 1:58 PM

It can be a tough conversation...that discussion about thinning hair and balding areas. Diana Schmidtke, Celebrity Men's Stylist and Grooming Expert, has found herself in that position more than once and wants to share tips and tricks to make that chat as painless and effective as possible.

Schmidtke, a spokesperson for Rogaine, begins the conversation with some facts:

  • Hereditary hair loss affects up to 40% of all men and more than 15 million men admit to being concerned about the condition. 
  • Men can begin experiencing hereditary hair loss as early as their late teens or early 20’s.
  • Men’s ROGAINE Foam is the first easy-to-use foam FDA-approved to help regrow hair. It contains 5% minoxidil, the only topical ingredient FDA-approved to help regrow hair.

Check out this short interview where Schmidtke gives advice to salon professionals on how to broach the subject.
