Salonclick, the world pioneer in professional-only men’s hair color and the maker of MiN Men’s Color Match, a revolutionary hair color that covers gray hairs in minutes, is announcing the launch of a new line of hair care products to further enhance the MiN system.

The new hair care line will help prevent and treat hair loss – while nourishing color-treated hair. The new MiN line is the first hassle-free line of hair care products to actually reduce hair loss without affecting hair color.

The line caters to both men and women’s color-treated hair. It features a shampoo, a conditioner, and four styling aids. The foundational product to launch in the line is the groundbreaking MiN WASH. The other products include a Rinse, Gel, Grooming Crme, Ice, and Clay.

“Our focus was from the inside of the bottle out, setting strict performance criteria from the outset, “said Chad Murawczyk, founder of MiN. “Time affects all of us and what we put on our bodies is as important as what we put in. MiN is the perfect mixture of science and nature to reduce life’s wear and tear.”

The MiN hair care products can be used effectively with other hair loss treatments including Finasteride (Propecia™, Procar) and Minoxidil (Rogaine ,Rogaine for Women), providing added benefit to the hair follicles.

MiN Wash

The first hair wash on the market that’s scientifically formulated to limit the production of DiHydroTestosterone (DHT) in the scalp yet is safe for color-treated hair. In addition to being the first colorsafe / DHT-Blocking shampoo available, the Min Wash comes at a very affordable retail price of only $14.00.

What is DHT?

DHT (dihydrotestosterone), a male hormone, is believed by medical researchers to be one of the major causes of hair loss in adults, both male and female.

Medical researchers have found that men with male pattern baldness generally have increased levels of DHT in the scalp. It is generally believed that this increased level of DHT shortens the hair’s normal growth cycle resulting in thinning hair.

DHT is derived from testosterone by a complex chemical process using Type I and Type II, 5-alpha reductase isoenzymes. The Type I enzyme in particular is prominent in the scalp and sebaceous glands. As the hair loss cycle continues (and possibly accelerates) there is typically an increase in the sebum produced by the sebaceous gland attached to the hair follicle. The increased production of sebum is accompanied by an increase in the level of 5-alpha reductase and pore clogging which can cause damage to the hair root and scalp.

Blocking the formation of DHT and Reducing DHT level in the scalp is needed in order to prevent and slow down the rate of hair loss.

Several studies have shown that Azeleic Acid, Zinc Sulfate and Saw Palmetto Extracts block the formation of DHT in the scalp.
