                  • Q:

                    Hello, I currently use Kit 3 with Diamax and the Night Density Rescue. I would also like to add the Hair Booster as it was recommended to me in the online consultation. It says to apply the hair Booster twice per day. The instructions say to apply before the Scalp Treatment. Do I apply it before or after the Night Density Rescue? Do I need to wait between product application? Thanks.

                      A:

                      We would recommend applying hair booster before the Night Density. I would wait 1-2 minutes for the product to dry before applying the second product.

                  • Q:

                    If I have thinning on just my hair line and right temple would this item be good to start with alone, if so how should I use it? I don't have a problem with the rest of my hair. I feel my problem is due more to wearing a ponytail and the friction caused by exercise.

                      A:

                      The Minoxidil is never to be used with any other treatment. I would suggest one or the other. The Hair booster will help promote hair growth, while the Minoxidil is clinically proven to regrow hair.

                  • Q:

                    As I have grayed I seem to have 2 types of hair now. Some (not totally white yet) is much softer where the parts that have turned all gray is much more coarse. Plus I now have a couple of dry spots that itches constantly. Which system would you recommend for my type of hair? Thank you kindly!

                      A:

                      Because you are experiencing an itchy scalp, you would need to treat this first, before you use one of the system kits. I would suggest using the Scalp Recovery System Kit. This contains a shampoo with 1% Pyrithione Zinc to relieve symptoms caused by scalp conditions. Green tea polyphenols help smooth and add moisture to dry itchy scalp conditions. I would use this product daily including the Scalp Recovery serum, to soothe your scalp. Once you have treated your scalp condition I would recommend system 6 for coarse hair.
