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!
Thank you for creating the best products I have ever tried in 40 yrs. I am a make-up artist and have tried most of the high end products from around the world and I can honestly say nothing performs as well as your products.
I'm 57 yrs old and before I started using your products my face looked tired, dull, with loose facial skin . The lines around my eyes looked crepey and my neck started to look like a turkeys neck - not attractive! My baby fine short dry hair never grew as the ends would break. Eeeek, I hated looking in the mirror!
My friends recommended your products and after their rave reviews I took the plunge! :-)
My first order was 5 August 2012 and I bought the P&R Classic, Exfol, Two Timing Tightener and the Super GHK. For my hair I bought Folligen Therapy, Shampoo and Conditioner.
I used the P&R Classic on my face in the morning, Super GHK around my eyes followed by Two Timing Tightener all over.
Evening after cleansing I used Exfol and Squalane (this is an oil I have used for years and had this oil on hand).
I have now been using all of the above products for 8 months and can honestly say I'm looking fabulous! My skin looks hydrated, brighter, plumper and firmer. My hair is softer, looks fuller and doesnt break off at the ends. It's amazing! My friends have all commented that I look younger and they're right. ;-)
I'm truly grateful for all your hard work Dr. Pickart and please know I am a very satisfied customer.
A little goes a long way as I used less than half bottle in a month... I would advise anyone with any hair or skin problems to try these products."
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 nickle sized amount of conditioner before working into my hair. I leave the product in while I shower and then rinse off before getting out... Thank you Dr. Pickart and Skin Biology.
If a woman has long hair, it is a glory unto her.

Most hair concerns for women normally center around scalp damage due to perms, coloring dyes, relaxers, using too much heat when drying hair, overuse of shampoos, tight buns or pony-tails, and overcutting (long hair is healthier). The chemical salts and dyes in eyebrow and eyelash make ups often produce a severe loss of eyebrows and eyelashes by age 40 in many women. Psychological stress or hormonal shifts such a menopausal changes or stopping the use of birth control pills can also cause temporary hair loss.
If you look at old photographs of families from about 1880, you will see that many women of age 60 still had long healthy hair in an era before modern hair care techniques. In poor areas on the world today, most mature women have healthier hair than in New York City.
Our recommendations are:
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 the appearance of their hair.
Some have decided to also add in 2% Minoxidil. This can be progressively increased to Minoxidil 5%. Sometimes minoxidil produces scalp irritation. If this happens, stop the minoxidil and use only Folligen until your scalp health has improved.
Addition of Retinoic Acid (useful range 0.01 to 0.05%) gives further hair stimulation 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 regrowth. The major drawback is an often strong scalp irritation. Folligen, used lightly, can greatly reduce this irritation. Sometimes, the combination of minoxidil and retinoic acid causes breaks in the skin barrier.
Addition of estrogen or other DHT blockers may help in some cases.
Non-drug natural DHT blockers include saw palmetto oil, pygeum and nettle root extract, the isoflavones genistein and daidzien, and ginkgo biloba.
In women, severe exercise tends to reduce estrogen and raise testosterone. This can lead to a stopping of the menstrual cycle and more brittle bones. While there are many positive aspects of exercise training, this effect on hair should be kept in mind since it can increase the rate of hair loss.
In women hair loss can become severe after giving birth to a child or after discontinuation of oral contraceptives (birth control pills). The In these cases, a brief therapy with hair stimulators can usually restore hair to its previous condition.
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.

Powerful copper peptides in Folligen and Hair Signals improve the appearance of thinning hair. Dr. Pickart previously invented the Tricomin line, a very highly rated hair care system. In his opinion, Folligen is a more effective system. You can further enhance these products with FDA approved minoxidil which improves hair growth.
HOW TO USE:
1. Use Minoxidil to help hair growth.
3. Apply a light amount of Emu Oil for Hair to assist penetration of the products and for enhanced scalp moisturization.
