7. Dove Men+Care shampoo

Studies show that men shed more hair than women and are thus more prone to baldness. 

The daily pollution and stress from work may contribute to men’s increased vulnerability to hair loss. Dove Men+Care recognizes this, so it formulated a special Dove Men+Care strengthening shampoo to ensure that men’s hair is ready for anything. 

It is now available in all supermarkets, drugstores and grocery outlets nationwide.
