I simply love your shampoo and conditioner as well as the Folligen Spray. I have fine hair and have had a very hard time finding a shampoo and conditioner that actually does justice to my hair. From the very first time I used your shampoo and conditioner, I felt an immediate difference in the manageability, shine, and texture of my hair. After leaving the conditioner on my hair for about 20 minutes, spraying on the Folligen and rubbing it into my scalp, and letting it air dry with a little styling product, my hair felt so healthy, soft, and super manageable!! I could not believe it! I think the Folligen spray also helped with the volume. Thank you so much for making a product that truly works!! I honestly did not think it would work this fast! As advised, it seems also that by adding a little bit of water to the bottles of the shampoo/conditioner, it did help with the application.

My 13 year old daughter has permed and highlighted hair and the worse case of dandruff I'd ever seen. After using some prescription products, nothing seemed to work. The dandruff and dryness would even be around her hairline and on the face a bit. I had been successfully using the products [for myself, for facial use] and had some CP Serum left. I tried this around the hairline and within days her severe dandruff cleared up! I am so happy with the products and am looking forward to ordering the Folligen [Shampoo and Conditioner] for her! Thank you!
Dr. Pickart, I have now been using your products for about three weeks and would like to report my experience: Folligen - I have a history of hair falling out for the last few years, therefore, have tried every conceivable product... For about three weeks I have been using a dilution of 50% Folligen Spray/50% purified water which I apply with a bottle dropper on parted hair at top of my head and rub in with Q-tip. I started slowly and built up to it over a week to10 days which allowed me to stop using minoxidil at night. Result: my hair has stopped falling out since using the Minoxidil. For days at a time no hair at all has fallen out. And Folligen has helped with flaky scalp or irritation and dryness.
I also just wanted to thank you too, for the Folligen hair care products. I use the Folligen spray and lotion, and the shampoo and conditioner. Let me tell you, I've used many, many very expensive shampoos and conditioners (even one set that was over $150), and I must say that the Folligen Shampoo and Conditioner are the best I've used; not only for their restorative properties, but the texture and effectiveness. These are very high quality products, and work great, even on very dry, damaged hair like mine. I am very much a hair care junkie, and would always be trying and buying very expensive products ALL of the time, but all of them pale in comparison. I had some hair loss after the birth of my daughter, and it just kept falling out. Now, my hair not only isn't falling out, but it is healthier than before I had a baby. I was very upset about my hair, but your products have done wonders. I can't go on enough. I still want some of the lost hair to grow back, but I can already see some "sprouts".
Normal skin and scalp pH is somewhat acid and in the range of 4.2. to 5.6. It varies from one part of the body to another and, in general, the pH of a man's skin is lower (more acid) than that of a woman's. The acid mantle inhibits the growth of foreign bacteria and fungi and the skin remains healthier, and has fewer blemishes. Skin problems become more severe when the skin become more alkaline. Thus dry scalp conditions such as irritated scalp, itchy flaky scalp, or red itchy scalp can result due to adverse reactions from harmful shampoo ingredients, hair dyes and chemical treatments.
The acid mantle is the combination of sebum (oils) and perspiration, on the skin's surface that protects the skin and renders the skin less vulnerable to damage and attack by environmental factors such as sun and wind and less prone to dehydration. The mantle also has strong anti-oxidant properties and is itself oxidized to protect the skin from oxidation. Sebum is naturally white but air oxidation turns it black (this is why "whitehead comedos" turn into "blackhead comedos").
Folligen is a non-drug product designed to improve scalp and hair follicle vitality. It is based on copper-peptides formulated to boost the health of your hair.
Folligen also contains high levels of lipids such as squalane, cetyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate and stearic acid that closely resembles the fats of the acid mantle. Furthermore, our exclusive Folligen formulations include antioxidants such as allantoin, aloe, vitamin E and retinol to aid the mantle's protective anti-oxidant properties.
Bleached, or very blond hair may pick up a green tint if Folligen is in contact with the hair. This is similar to the greenish-tint that may occur after spending time in swimming pools. The blue color can be removed with a solution of 1 part of lemon juice and 4 parts of water.
If the coloring is a problem, then use Folligen for Blondes which has no blue color.
Use Emu Oil S Lipid Replenisher on top to facilitate penetration.
Typical results take approximately 4-6 weeks of consistent use.
