the Dirt out? No...
When you see shampoo's and lotions which
claim that they "clean" the scalp so well, that they help
stop hair loss, chances are, they're full of it. The
issue is not dirt. The issue is DHT and the inflammation it
causes, which exacerbates the scalp environment, leading to balding. DHT is an expert at creating a very
unhealthy, itchy, flaky scalp environment. This alone can cause even
successful treatments to be unsuccessful, and an untreated
individual to see an even faster thinning. The
following study was done in an attempt to determine whether
inflammation was found as a general phenomenon, or more common in
those experiencing Alopecia (hair loss). Please note the last
sentence, for their conclusions.
"Quantitative and ultrastructural analysis of inflammatory
infiltrates in male pattern alopecia."
Acta Derm Venereol 1999 Sep;79(5):347-50.
In order to determine whether lymphocytic inflammation around the lower
infundibula in male pattern baldness is incidental or a general phenomenon, we performed morphometric and
ultrastructural analysis of inflammatory infiltrates in the transitional zones of the vertex and
occipital hairy scalps of 19 patients with male pattern
baldness. Six normal subjects served as controls. The number of inflammatory infiltrates around the follicular
infundibula of the alopecic vertices and non-alopecic occiputs of male
pattern alopecia patients was significantly greater than the corresponding
control value. The number of mast cells in the widened fibrous tracts in the vertices of male pattern
baldness patients was significantly greater than those in the adventitial fibrotic
sheaths of control subjects and the non-alopecic occiputs of male pattern alopecia patients.
support the idea that the inflammatory process may be, at least in part, responsible
for the development of male pattern alopecia.
These products are designed to help create an environment that
promotes regrowth both alone, and in conjunction with other
treatments. They are used both by women for stress and estrogen-related
thinning, and by men for DHT
(dihydrotestosterone) related scalp damage. The main method of action is
the delivery of Copper Peptides to the follicle, which has been
shown to stimulate follicles into their growth phase faster. Dr. Pickart,
who also created the well known Tricomin
Product line (also shown in clinical trials to stimulate growth),
conducted studies at over 30 leading Medical Research Institutes.
These studies established the effectiveness of the Copper Peptide Tissue Regeneration

This treatment had its beginning as a skin repair cream that was being tested in the Dermatology Department at the University of California at San Francisco. A 41-year-old woman with severe
the cream because nothing else had worked. In two and one-half months she
had almost complete regrowth. Other people began using the skin repair cream to counter
and in time, Folligen emerged as a distinct product.
These products for men are either used alone, or with other
follicle stimulators such as
Minoxidil, and DHT inhibitors like Propecia.
Folligen is compatible with these products and helps reduce the scalp irritation is sometimes caused by
Male users usually report:

Female hair loss is normally due to hormonal shifts such as menopausal changes, stopping the use of birth control
pills, and sometimes an occurrence after having given birth. However,
female hair loss is easier to reverse than male pattern baldness. The use of estrogen replacement therapies or the use of natural products containing estrogen-like or progesterone-like activities also can help. The
cream and spray are
essential for this.
Copper ion complexes with certain
peptides have both skin repair and regrowth enhancement effects. The
Proctor Gamble Company has patented as growth compounds a
number of copper complexes with peptides such His-Gly-Gly and
similar compounds. Female hair loss is often associated with
scalp irritation or inflammation. The cream and spray skin repair properties
rapidly restore scalp health.
Alopecia Areata (AA) is very common in women and generally appears
as patches of skin rather than thinning. Copper peptides possess significant anti-inflammatory actions which may reduce AA.
Although mild erythema may occur initially, affected areas of scalp or skin appear
normal. This may be anywhere on the scalp or even the rest of the body.

The best known DHT (dihydrotestosterone) blocker is Propecia®, the drug from Merck, but Merck does not recommend Propecia for women: a one year study of
growth in 136 post-menopausal women found no significant effect
on their regrowth.
