Information & Advice

Getting started with Nanogen (for Men)

It can be easy for men to get fuller-looking hair with Nanogen hair products. Get hints and tips on how to use them here.

Nanogen hair products for men may be widely used in professional clinics but they are still easy to use at home. Just follow our hints and tips.

How to use Nanogen products with Hair Growth Factors

  1. Nanogen Shampoo and Conditioner
    This one's simple - just use it like any other "normal" shampoo and conditioner. Gentle but powerful, it can be used every day or whenever you normally wash your hair.

    Tip: Do you like a lot of foam? You can get very thick and creamy foam using Nanogen Shampoo, but since they are free from sulphate detergents, you need to try this little trick first. Use a little bit of the shampoo on wet hair, give it a quick massage and then rinse it off. Now reapply a full application of shampoo and give it a good massage to create incredibly rich and dense foam.

    Nanogen Conditioner doesn't weigh down the hair, which can make it look thinner, even if you use it every day. Nanogen Conditioner helps create volume to make hair appear thicker, and it contains hair growth factors, too. Use it when you feel you need to. Make sure you massage it into the roots so all your hair is nourished, not just the ends.

  2. Nanogen Treatment Mask
    You might prefer to use the Nanogen Hair Mask rather than the conditioner. This needs much less commitment, because you only need to use it once a week, as it's more intensive. Make sure you use plenty and, most importantly, leave it on for at least five minutes and you should feel the benefit!

  3. Nanogen Serum
    Nanogen Serum is really easy to apply. Nanogen recommends using it every day, around the same time of day. It's got a dropper for precise application. Just fill the dropper and apply it directly on to your scalp. The glass tube reaches through hair easily, even if it's long or curly. Squeeze the dropper gently to make a random pattern of dots over the required area until the dropper is empty. You can either massage it in or just let the drops dry naturally, whichever you prefer.

    The serum is very light and non-sticky, spreads easily and dries in just a couple of minutes.

  4. Nanogen Scalp Hydrator
    If you get a dry and itchy scalp, try the Nanogen Scalp Hydrator spray, enriched with Hair Growth Factor. Just spray it on to dry hair or use the nozzle to get right into the scalp. You can massage it in and through your hair or just leave it to dry. Either way, you should feel more comfortable almost immediately and your hair will look shiny.

Using Nanogen Conceal & Style products for men

  1. Nanogen Hair Fibres

    • These can be applied in seconds
    • Gently shake on to dry hair
    • Blend in thoroughly with fingers. Repeat if necessary
    • For best results it's recommended that you secure the hair fibres in place with Nanogen Fibre Locking Mist

    Tip: A lot of styling gels and waxes group hairs together to help them stay in place, which can actually make hair look thinner. A natural hairstyle that uses less or no styling product may improve the results of Nanogen Hair Fibres. You may want the way the hair is cut to determine the shape and style, rather than using styling products to do it. It may be worth considering getting your hair cut more often but having less taken off each time.

  2. Choose the perfect colour for you
    Nanogen Hair Fibres are available in 10 different colour shades, which can be combined to create the best colour match for your hair. Aquamatch is available in black and brown shades, and matches the hair fibres' colour exactly. Please select a colour to match from the chart:

    Nanogen Black Nanofibres
    Nanogen Dark-Brown Nanofibres
    Nanogen Medium-Brown Nanofibres
    Nanogen Light-Brown Nanofibres
    Nanogen Auburn Nanofibres

    Black only suits oriental jet black hair.
    Dark Brown suits the darkest of brown hair.
    Medium Brown suits most medium-to-darker brown hair shades.
    Use Light Brown for lighter brown to very dark blonde colours.
    Auburn is Medium Brown with a touch of red

    Nanogen Cinnamon Nanofibres
    Nanogen Dark-Blonde Nanofibres
    Nanogen Light-Blonde Nanofibres
    Nanogen Grey Nanofibres
    Nanogen White Nanofibres

    Cinnamon is Light Brown with a touch of red.
    Dark Blonde is a full honey colour, and Light Blonde is a lighter sandy tone.
    To match blonde highlights, add a small amount of light or dark blonde to your 'main' colour.
    Add Grey for darker grey hair or a small amount for matching the salt 'n' pepper look.
    Add White for pure white hair or mix with grey for light grey hair

    Nanogen Nanofibres colours will match Nanogen Aquamatch colours. All Nanogen colours blend perfectly.

    Follow these colour tips to help select the right shade for you:

    • Black only suits oriental jet black hair.
    • Dark Brown suits the darkest of brown hair.
    • Medium Brown suits most medium-to-darker brown hair shades.
    • Use Light Brown for lighter brown to very dark blonde colours.

  3. Complete hair camouflage
    You can combine Nanogen Conceal & Style products to get a "salon-perfect" look, giving the appearance of thicker hair. By combining Aquamatch with Nanogen Hair Fibres, not only do you get a total transformation but you actually use less of each product, making it a very cost-effective combination.

    1. Apply Aquamatch directly on to the scalp to conceal scars and thinning hairlines or wide partings.
    2. Then shake Nanogen Hair Fibres on to the hair and blend in with your fingertips for incredible hair density.
    3. Finally, secure the hair fibres in place with Nanogen Fibre Locking Mist for a secure and water-resistant hold.
