"Thinning hair is a huge issue for men as it directly impacts their self esteem"

head & shoulders® announces the launch of its first “for men” series with a new shampoo and two-in-one line, Hair Endurance for Men, specifically formulated to clean to restore fullness to thinning hair, leaving it 100 percent flake-free3. In a 2008 survey conducted by P&G Beauty, 59 percent of surveyed males say they were experiencing thinning and/or are concerned about thinning hair. This efficacious and refreshing product is the targeted solution to delivering fuller, thicker looking hair in seven days1 guaranteed2.

While head & shoulders has traditionally been seen as a male-targeted brand, the “for men” line signifies a trend to cater to men’s growing need to look good and feel self assured. “Thinning hair is a huge issue for men as it directly impacts their self esteem,” says head & shoulders’ Assistant Brand Manager, Navin Gupta. “head & shoulders has developed an easy to use product that guarantees a fuller, thicker look1, giving men back the confidence to live life to their fullest potential.”

The Hair Endurance for Men line was developed to clean to restore fuller, thicker looking hair. head & shoulders’ zinc pyrithione (ZPT) formula works against dandruff by effectively tackling a cause of dandruff at the scalp in addition to the signs of dandruff including dryness and itchiness. By reducing dandruff symptoms, Hair Endurance for Men can calm and reduce dandruff scalp irritations, which means less itch and urge to scratch.

head & shoulders’ Hair Endurance for Men is available at food, drug, and mass retailers nationwide starting in March. Retailing at $4.97 per 14.2 oz bottle, Hair Endurance offers a cost-effective, quick and easy solution to getting fuller, thicker looking hair1 to maximize men’s fullest potential.
