 Follicare

Description

Follicare is a hair care system formulated to attack the major causes of hair loss inside and out. Follicare products include 5% Extra Strength Minoxidil, Topical Spray, Revitalizing Shampoo and Nutritional Supplement. Minoxidil, also known as RogaineŽ, is an FDA-approved medication for hair loss treatment.

Male or female pattern baldness, known as androgenic alopecia (AGA), is a common form of hair loss in men and women. Minoxidil is a vasodilator drug that may also slow hair loss and improve hair growth in male or female pattern baldness. Follicare's Topical Spray contains natural vasodilators including kigelia fruit, clary sage, benzyl nicotinate and cinnamon. They protect against hair loss by increasing blood flow to the scalp.

One of the causes of hair loss is believed to be due to the damaging effects of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) and the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase. Follicare topical spray and nutritional supplement contain saw palmetto and beta sitosterol (a plant phytosterol), to block 5-alpha-reductase and stop the production of DHT. They also contain gingko biloba to increase scalp circulation and nutrient supply to the hair roots and follicles.

My boyfriend started using this product last year and it has done nothing to stop or even slow down his hair loss. Maybe he's one of the few that it doesn't work on.This product was a waste of money
