The team at Uncle Jimmy is excited to announce the launch of our newest product—our Thick Hair Growth Serum! It’s formulated with natural ingredients as both a proactive and reactive approach to hair loss. Our lightweight formula won’t weigh your hair down or leave it feeling greasy, but it will add a healthy sheen. Here’s what you need to know.
What Causes Hair Loss?
There are a variety of factors that can lead to hair loss. While most men start to experience hair loss in their late 20s to early 30s, hair loss can begin as early as your teens or 20s. Statistics show that 50% of men will experience hair loss by the age of 50, and 80% by the age of 70. This includes conditions such as alopecia, receding hairline, pattern baldness, thinning hair, and gradual full-head baldness.
The most common causes include:
Hereditary hair loss—if hair loss is common in your family, the more proactive you are the better. Not all men will experience hereditary, but if it runs in your family, it increases your odds.
Health factors—there are a variety of health factors and medical conditions that can accelerate hair loss, including alopecia, stress, trauma, hormonal changes, thyroid conditions, and prescription pharmaceuticals.
How To Take A Proactive Approach To Hair Loss?
Everything from your lifestyle to your hair products, daily nutrition, and overall health can decrease your risk for thinning, balding, or a receding hairline.
The tips below will help:
Prioritize your nutrition—there’s no need to go on an extreme diet, but minimizing the processed sugars, fast foods, trans fat, and processed foods in your diet will help. More specifically, ensure your diet is packed with lots of leafy greens, fish, lean protein, legumes, and nuts. You may also want to take daily supplements that support hair growth including biotin (vitamin B7), zinc, iron, vitamins C and D, omega fatty acids, and probiotics.
De-stress—physical and emotional stress are inevitable, but you can control how you manage your stress. A few quick tips include unplugging at a set time each day, working out 4 to 6 days a week, scheduling a massage, taking time off, and prioritizing your whole-body wellness.
Sleep—sleep deprivation falls into the de-stress category, but it deserves its own section. When you’re sleep-deprived, it creates internal physical stress. Sleep is when our bodies naturally heal and repair. If you are consistently getting less than 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night or aren’t getting enough quality sleep, hair loss may be one of the side effects—along with decreased immunity, brain fog, irritability, and more.
Care for your hair—how you treat your hair matters. Some common mistakes include:
- Use hot water instead of warm water in the shower.
- Using chemically derived haircare products.
- Rubbing your hair too hard when drying it.
- Overuse of heated styling tools or chemical processing.
- Spending too much time in extreme weather without protecting your hair.
- Use products or styling tools that aren’t right for your hair texture or hair type.
- Skipping trips to the barbershop or hair salon for a trim and personalized hair care tips.
- Going it alone when you should head to the dermatologist at the first sign of hair loss.

How To Use Uncle Jimmy Men’s Hair Serum?
Uncle Jimmy Hair Serum is lightweight, so there’s no need to worry about it weighing your hair down. Use as a nourishing scalp treatment and daily pre-styling serum.
Scalp treatment—after you shampoo, condition, and pat your hair dry, part your hair into at least 4 sections. Apply a few drops of serum to each part line, then use your fingertips to gently massage your scalp. Massage for 3 minutes to stimulate circulation. Repeat daily or every other day. Follow up with your preferred Uncle Jimmy styling products.
Daily hair treatment—add 4 to 10 drops of serum to your palms, depending on the length of your hair. Rub your palms together and evenly distribute the serum throughout your hair. Apply daily or a few days a week for moisture, sheen, and to strengthen your hair. Follow up with your preferred Uncle Jimmy styling products.
Can’t I Just Shave My Head?
Yes of course, sleek and smooth bald heads are sexy! Uncle Jimmy understands if you want to keep your full and healthy head of hair for as long as possible. But if you have a severely receding hairline or large bald patches, a clean-shaven head may make you look more youthful.
Your barber will ensure a clean shave and discuss which razor you should use for self-maintenance. After you shower each day, simply apply a few drops of beard oil to your palms and massage the oil into your scalp to keep it nourished and moisturized. If you’ll be out in the sun for long periods of time, wear a cap or apply sunscreen.
