            • Q:

              Should I use this everyday even if I don't wash my hair everyday, or only when I wash it? My hair loss is from weight loss surgery in 2013 and I've started to lose my hair again. I have been using this product for about a month now and so far I am not noticing a difference. (shampoo, conditioner and foam) But still optimistic that this will help.

                For best results, use the 3-Part System every day or as often as you can. When used daily, 9 out of 10 users notice improvements in hair density and thickness within 30 days of use.

              • Staff Expert

                A:

                Please use the System that most closely matches your hair type and condition. For noticeably thinning hair, we suggest one of the following, according to your hair type and condition:

                System 2 - fine, natural hair
                System 4 - fine, chemically treated hair
                System 6 - medium to coarse hair

              If I stop using the scalp treatment is it possible to shed even more hair? I only wash my hair a few times a week so wondering if the foam will still be effective if I only use a few times a week?

                A:

                No, the products within System 4 do not contain Minoxidil. Minoxidil is sold as a separate treatment in concentrations of 2% for women and 5% for men.

                We do not recommend using the Scalp Treatment in conjunction with Minoxidil. You should only be using 1 topical treatment, either the Scalp Treatment or Minoxidil.

                A:

                If you already have the System 4 Scalp Treatment, please feel free to use that. In the future, you can use the System 2. We recommend continuing to use the Scalp Treatment along with the System 4 Cleanser and Scalp Therapy, but we suggest adding the Hair Booster to the mix. You can apply it once in the morning and once at night onto clean or dirty scalp. Direct it onto the problem areas, and it should help invigorate the scalp to promote hair growth.

                The amount will vary by individual. On average, the Scalp Treatment is 4-8 pumps per use. Apply it directly to a clean, towel dried scalp and massage it in with your fingertips.
