Thinning hair can be a distressing experience for men, as it adds to the worry of hair loss. They wake up every morning to find their hair on the pillow and it really freaks them out – they don’t want to be bald! They’re panicked and are searching for any solution to their heartbreaking situation. Over the years many shampoo brands have claimed that they can prevent hair loss and desperate men try it – believing it will help. Truth is that shampoo won't fix the problem. The best way to tackle thinning hair problems is with a scalp tonic (the best one there is)!

SUCCESS is a leading scalp tonic brand, which has been marketing a proven hair strengthening solution for over 27 years. It has quite a different action to shampoos. A shampoo washes the hair. A scalp tonic is usually used after a shampoo. SUCCESS’ role is not to wash hair but to penetrate into the hair root with two active ingredients: “T Flavanone” that nurtures hair bulbs and prevents hair loss, and “Nicotinic Acid Amide” that promotes blood circulation. SUCCESS gives men a refreshing mint feeling that leaves their hair strong.

SUCCESS has been advocating the superiority of its products for years, but it needs to find a more engaging way, beyond scientific explanations to win not only the mind but also the hearts of men… Worried, depressed men need your help! You must get them to leave their useless shampoos and commit to SUCCESS scalp tonic. Can you help? 

Creative Challenge

Create a strong, engaging and original story that explains why only SUCCESS scalp tonic can strengthen men's hair, prevent hair loss and make a difference in their lives.

Don’t make an ad for SUCCESS or your entry will be rejected. We want a story with a strong emotion to inspire a totally new wave of communication – make it engaging, entertaining and convincing. Focus on why it is important to prevent hair loss and thinning hair, understand men's emotional situation and show that this product can be the best solution for them.

You can choose any human emotion in your entry in order to draw men's attention.

Tell us what emotion you choose in your entry and why you think it would work well with men in your story.


The examples are only provided to illustrate our expectations. Please do not use them in your submission or it will be rejected.

You can include emotions in your entry in order to create a connection with the viewer and show that you understand his feelings. You can choose emotions like: humor, fear, confidence, love, pride, knowledge, shock, surprise, warmth, exhilaration, happiness or sadness… We are looking for a way to show that we have the solution to their thinning hair so that they don’t have to feel bad any longer. Your story needs to engage people from the start and make them want to watch it to the end.

For example, if you choose “pride”: The story of a man wearing a hat who is out with his work colleagues, and as they boast about their achievements and possessions (prestigious jobs, expensive cars, luxury watches…) he seems unimpressed. Until it is his turn to reveal his pride… he removes his hat and while all his colleagues have dull, thin and balding hair, he has amazingly gorgeous hair, full of vitality.
