Discover the reasons why by using Skin Biology's copper peptide products. Enhance these products with FDA approved minoxidil to improve hair growth.

My husband started two months ago with Folligen Solution Spray, waoo, what results... I took pictures of him before and now we compare it and you can notice the improvement.
S from Orlando, FL from June 2011.
Through extensive research I found your products not only for hair but for skin. 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... My regimen: 5% minoxidil full strength in am @16 drops and Folligen 50% dilution in am @/16 drops.
I have very light blonde hair chemically processed every 2 months. I have not had any color from the Folligen stain my hair at all and I use it every night. I will keep you informed about my progress.
Theories of how to improve the appearance of thinning hair have focused on the metabolic actions of testosterone metabolites. However, the ultimate factor in improving luster is focusing on the hair follicle.
We recommend using Folligen four to five times a week as a light coating applied before bedtime.
Many of our customers have reported that the combination of Folligen and emu oil often help revitalize hair.
Some have decided to add in 2% Minoxidil. This can be progressively increased to 5% Minoxidil. Sometimes minoxidil produces scalp irritation. If this happens, stop the minoxidil and use only Folligen until your scalp health has improved. Then reuse the 2% minoxidil and the minoxidil 5% if your scalp remains healthy.
Addition of Retinoic Acid (useful range 0.01 to 0.05%) may provide further help to reach your goals, but may irritate the scalp.
Retinoic acid (Retin-A) helps produce thicker hair shafts when used with minoxidil. This combination appears to be one of the better current approaches to hair appearance. The major drawback is an often strong scalp irritation. Sometimes, the combination of minoxidil and retinoic acid causes breaks in the skin barrier.
The addition anti-testosterone supplements or DHT blockers may help further.
DHT (dihydrotestosterone) blockers include the Propecia®, the new drug from Merck and several useful non-drug DHT blockers.
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.
Discontinue minoxidil if you experience irritation.
Typical results take approximately 4-6 weeks of consistent use.
