Hair Reviews: Folligen Copper Peptides

I have been using only Skin Biology for 10 years. I am now 58. I use your hair products and not one grey hair at this stage. I am so grateful for your research and your integrity in your product.

SC, Australia

I just used the Folligen Shampoo and Conditioner for the first time after ordering the 2 oz bottles to try. Since my son was born 3 years ago, my hair has not been the same! I lost so much hair and the overall health and texture seemed permanently diminished.

All I can say about the Folligen is WOW!!! My hair hasn't looked this full, shiny, and bouncy since I was a teenager. It dried in half the time and is silky smooth (I have curls that I often blow dry straight). I didn't even have to use any other products...just the shampoo, conditioner, and a touch of hair oil to style. I'm impressed!


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. 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.

I recently went in for a haircut... [My stylist] was besides himself because my hair had so much body and shine. He said that whatever I'm doing, I'm doing it right. I've been using Folligen Shampoo and Conditioner for just a few months now. In fact, I'm only half way down my first bottle of shampoo. When I shower, I shampoo my hair first then mix a few drops of Emu Oil-S for Hair into a nickel sized amount of conditioner before working into my hair. I leave the product in while I shower and then rinse off before getting out.


I am happy to say Thank You to you for the superb product Folligen. Of course, I googled this product for much needed information everyday before usage and rarely thought that feedback was for real. I am here to tell anyone reading this that this product is for real... My scalp is soothing with no sores or pimples and hair is finally manageable... I only started with your starter kit. Will be ordering more product soon. Thank you again and again and again.


Folligen Lotion and MSM (2-4 grams daily) helped improve the look of my hair greatly! I highly recommend the use of Folligen Cream for those of us who get relaxer touch-ups regularly. Thank you for inventing this product that is PERFECT for chemically treated ethnic hair. I'm excited to now try the new Hair Signals Therapy!


Hair Concerns: MEN

Current theories on how to improve the appearance of thinning hair for men have focused mainly on the metabolic actions of testosterone metabolites. However, the ultimate factor in improving hair health should be to focus on the follicle itself.

Most online hair tips for improving thinning hair lack a fundamental knowledge of human skin biology and the science of hair follicle rejuvenation. The issue is that if a person does not fully understand the cause of a problem, how can they ever expect to find help for it?

Our approach at Skin Biology is to literally get to the root of the issue and focus on the health of the scalp.

Following the suggested use of Skin Biology's copper peptides, clients around the world have seen positive changes in the appearance of their hair and are overjoyed as they also discover just how easy it is to incorporate Folligen or Hair Signals Therapy into a weekly regimen.

Hair Concerns: WOMEN

Dante Gabriel Rossetti - Helen of Troy

For women, the causes of hair loss and thinning typically center around growth problems incurred due to chemical damage (e.g. perms, coloring dyes, relaxers); heat damage (from high heat settings on blow dryer and/or frequent use of flat-irons); use of inferior styling products (e.g. overuse of shampoos that strip the hair of its protective oils/proteins, or use of poor conditioners that add little if any replenishing factors to damaged hair); or hair styling techniques that stress weak hair (e.g. tight buns or pony-tails, overcutting, etc).

Eyebrow and eyelash loss may stem from the chemical salts and dyes used in cosmetics which, in time, often produce severe thinning. See:

Psychological stress and hormonal shifts (such as menopausal changes or stopping the use of birth control pills) can also result in thinning and hair loss.

How can a person combat and possibly reverse these effects?

LONG HAIR IS STRONGER HAIR - Look at old photographs of families in the 1800s. You'll see that many women, even past the age of 60, still had long healthy hair! Of course, this was before the era of popular modern hair care techniques that use intense-heat styling and a plethora of chemicals.

In fact even today, in economically stressed areas around the world, most mature women still have long, healthier hair. So what is their secret?

Simple techniques such as cleansing hair properly, avoiding over-washing, partaking of a hair-healthy diet, and keeping the hair long (which often times results in physically stronger, more resilient hair!) is likely the key.


With this in mind, Dr. Loren Pickart designed Folligen (a non-drug scalp topical) to boost the health of your hair starting at the follicle itself.

Folligen can be used alone, or in combination with Emu Oil for Hair (or with Minoxidil).

Emu Oil - Lock in Moisture!

Many of our customers report that the combination of Folligen and Emu Oil often help revitalize the appearance of their hair*.

How does emu oil work? First of all, emu oil is a biological oil that can effectively moisturize the scalp from root to tip. Most clients use it as a light scalp oil. But Emu Oil can be applied very lightly on the tips of your hair to stave off split ends and hydrate a dry, frizzy appearance.

A few drops of Emu Oil can also be added to deep conditioning treatments.

For those who prefer a plant-based scalp oil, we recommend Squalane Lipid Replenisher.

How to Use Minoxidil (2% or 5%)

As the only topical approved for hair growth by the FDA, some have also decided to add Minoxidil to their scalp care regimen.

Most start with 2% and progressively increase to 5% (if needed). Keep in mind that minoxidil can at times result in mild scalp irritation. Use only as directed. Start with every other day applications (or even 2-3 times a week). Test on a small area first. If irritation occurs, stop Minoxidil and use only Folligen until your scalp has calmed.

Others have tried retinoic acid on the scalp (ranging between 0.01 to 0.05%). But this may also irritate the scalp. Clients must always do their due diligence by first thoroughly researching any method they decide to use. Test any new product on a small area first. And use all scalp products lightly.

Retinoic acid (Retin-A) may help produce thicker hair shafts when used with minoxidil. This combination appears to be one of the better current approaches to hair rejuvenation. However, the major drawback is often strong scalp irritation. Sometimes, the combination of minoxidil and retinoic acid causes breaks in the skin barrier.

Folligen and/or Emu Oil, when used lightly, seem to greatly reduce this irritation.

The addition of anti-testosterone supplements or DHT blockers may help further.





Color-treated blonde hair (which is more porous) may pick up a green tint if copper peptides are overused. The effect is similar to the greenish-tint that can happen to very blonde hair after spending time in chlorinated swimming pools. The green/blue-ish tint is temporary and can be removed with a solution of 1 part of lemon juice to 4 parts of water.

OR ----to avoid potential temporary coloring, those with blonde hair can always use Folligen for Blondes which leaves no color at all on the hair.

You can apply Emu Oil S Lipid Replenisher after a light application of your copper peptide topical to enhance penetration and help moisturize dry scalp.


Research whether light use of Minoxidil is worth adding to your personal haircare regimen. If you decide to use Minoxidil (or Rogaine) ALWAYS use Folligen along with it (either alternating with every other day applications or applying after the Minoxidil). Discontinue minoxidil if you experience scalp irritation. Always test on a small area first.


Typical results take approximately 4-6 weeks of consistent use to start to notice the beginnings of positive changes in hair appearance. Be sure to use the product consistently during this time period.
