One thing few grown men will argue with is a full head of hair atop their heads. Indeed, what we basically take for granted in our younger days becomes a precious commodity when we’re older, as our hair becomes more and more integral to our identity. One’s hair is, in fact, so valuable that millions of men resort to extreme measures in hopes of retaining every last follicle. Miracle cures. Mystic potions. Ancient Chinese balms. There’s simply no method or formula that a man won’t try when his once-luscious locks are receding by the day. As you can probably guess, the results are uneven at best.
Enter Australia’s own évolis®, which has all the right science in its corner. What’s more, the brand delivers the only scientifically validated hair care range that targets the hair life cycle itself. Each rigorously-tested product is formulated by Japanese hair biologists after 12 years of research, using first in class FGF5-inhibitor technology to regulate the hair growth cycle. Whether you’re attempting to reverse or prevent hair loss or promote growth, this is where your journey begins. The best part? The brand is giving away 10 Free Active Packs for Men. And even if you don’t win, you can currently receive 40% off these active packs by way of a limited time promotion with code ACTIVE40, keeping the money in your wallet and the hair on your head.
The Science of Hair
Before we dive into the glory of évolis® hair care products, allow us to offer a brief science lesson. As you may or may not be aware, every single follicle on your head is in a constant state of generation, regression, or renewal. More to the point, each hair undergoes a cycle that repeats itself about 25 times during your lifetime and breaks down into three phases. During the anagen phase—which typically lasts between three and eight years—the hair emerges and grows. Next comes the catagen phase, also known as the regression phase. It lasts for 2-3 weeks and sees the follicle entering a state of rest. Last but not least is the telogen phase, a renewal period that lasts about three months. This is when a new hair begins to form and then pushes the existing hair out of its adjoining pore.
During hair loss—aka follicular miniaturization—a disruptor like stress or damage upsets the hair cycle and thereby shortens the growth (or anagen) phase. For both men and women, the disruption causes each hair to shrink in terms of length and volume alike. Should the pattern persist, it can dry up the reserve of stem cells and eventually kill the follicles at their roots.
Why évolis® works
This is why évolis® products actively target hair cycle dysfunction, which is at the very foundation of hair loss itself. By blocking the key regulatory signal (FGF5) that transitions hair from the anagen phase to the catagen phase, these products help hair stay in the growth phase for longer periods of time. As a direct result, there’s a reduction in the number of resting hairs and an increase in the number of actively growing follicles.
All the while, the product is restoring your hair’s natural growth cycle. It might sound too good to be true, but we’re not simply pulling information out of thin air. In a blinded, placebo-controlled study of men and women, évolis® users reduced hair loss by 82% and increased hair growth by 44% over 4 months. Let’s give it up for science, people!
Of course, you shouldn’t take the word “science” to mean that the évolis® range is anything short of natural. On the contrary, each ingredient is sourced from accredited organic suppliers, tested extensively, and free from parabens, phosphates, sulfates, phthalates, and silicones. In other words, you’re getting a deft blend of science and nature and the best of two worlds.
The évolis® Range
At the top of the évolis® portfolio is its namesake pharmacy range, consisting of tonics, shampoos and active packs for both men and women. Each product in the pharmacy range is approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), Australia’s regulatory body for therapeutic goods. In the Active Pack for Men—which the brand is currently giving away to ten lucky winners—you’ll find a three-month supply of tonic and a free bottle of 3-in-1 shampoo.
The tonic is made in Australia to the highest pharmaceutical standards, and it’s the first and only product to utilise FGF5-blocking ingredients while restoring the hair growth cycle. The shampoo, meanwhile, comes bolstered by a unique Catch & Release Polymer (CRP) along with 3-in-1 technology, to improve hair shine, volume, strength, health, and vitality. It’s all part of the Active Pack for Men, which is available through both the giveaway or with 40% off for a limited time.
If you’d rather dip your toes before diving into the pharmaceutical range, consider évolis® Professional. Here, you’ll discover the Reverse, the Promote, and the Prevent collection. Respectively, the ranges reverse hair loss, promote hair length, and prevent future disruptions. We’ll let you figure out which one does which (hint: it’s quite obvious).
No matter who you are, your hair or lack thereof remains fundamental to your identity. Heck, we’ll just come out and say it: women often prefer men with thick heads of voluminous hair. Sorry, but it’s true. The good news is that évolis® products actually work, with a slate of five-star reviews to show for it. Whether you’re thinning out or getting ahead of the inevitable, enter the giveaway to receive a free Active Pack for Men or visit the brand’s website for a 40% discount. You’ll be glad you did.
