Charles Lloyd (only 14 weeks)
"I figured what the heck, I have nothing to lose. Let me try the product. It's been 14 weeks since I started using Follicare and I've noticed a difference, which for me is pretty incredible. I can actually see the fine black, brown hair starting to grow in the temple area and also in the back. Others, especially my hairdresser have mentioned that I look like I've got a little hair growth in the back. I'm pretty excited about that!"
Ed Danoff (only 7 weeks)
"I noticed in the front that it looks like the receding hairline as actually going away and that some of the hair is coming back. In the backside, quite a bit of hair has grown in. It's a vast improvement from when I first started using Follicare. Follicare is definitely working. I'm amazed how much of an increase in hair there is on the back of my head. I think my hair is thicker on the side and the front too. I definitely see a change and much more that I expected.".

The original Follicare ® System was developed in 1996 by Dr. Chris Catalfo for his own personal use.
Dr. Catalfo started to experience the effects of androgenic alopecia in 1984. He tried every product available to stop his own hair loss and re-grow hair. Not having success with any of these available preparations (including minoxidil by itself), he personally started researching and experimenting with different combinations of ingredients he believed could promote new hair growth. Since the original formula was developed, Follicare ® has gone through several generations of enhancements leading to the present Follicare ® Hair Growth and Restoration System for Men
I was devastated when I started losing my hair. It seemed there was more hair in my bathroom sink than on my head. The truth was devastating. I was going bald in my early 20's. Initially, hair loss was on my mind 24 hours a day. I was avoiding social functions, staying out of bright lights, and trying not to get caught in the rain. In a panic, I started reading about hair care products, asking my hairstylist for help, and watching every infomercial I could stay awake for. I tried every product on the market, natural and prescription, foreign and domestic, all with little or no results. Now not only was my hair thinning, so was my wallet. I didn't want hair weaves, transplants, or hair pieces. I wanted my hair back.
You've probably seen all the before and after photos from other products. Have you ever ended up looking like the 'after' photo? I never did. I refused to sit idly by and watch myself prematurely age. I decided to do something about it...
After using Follicare ® for six months, the results were
so dramatic that people who hadn't seen me in a while were asking if I had hair

2% Extra Strength Follicare Minoxidil is an FDA approved product to promote hair growth. It is a powerful vasodilator and is provided to you at the strongest dosage permitted by law. Using it alone is not enough for most men because it addresses only one cause of hair loss.
HOW FOLLICARE WORKS
The Follicare ® Hair Growth and Restoration System is a unique system designed to combat not one, but ALL of the major causes responsible for hair loss. Most hair growth products only address one cause of hair loss and unless you know why you are experiencing hair loss, how do you know which product to use?
The four main factors involved in hair loss are:
Lack of sufficient scalp circulation; Build up of DHT;
Lack of nutrients and building blocks; Harmful microbes
Here's how Follicare ® addresses the main causes of hair loss:
Follicare ® System helps promote blood flow to the scalp.
In balding areas on the scalp, there may be a restricted, or reduced,
blood flow from the small capillaries that feed the hair growth
mechanism which decreases the supply of oxygen and nutrients that
are needed to regenerate new healthy hair cells.
The Follicare ® Nutritional Supplement and All Natural Topical Spray use natural vasodilators such as niacin, benzyl nicotinate, hawthorn berry, rosemary and ginkgo biloba, as well as 5% extra strength minoxidil, to increase blood flow to the scalp.
Follicare ® System helps block the production of DHT in the scalp by
blocking the activity of the enzyme, 5-alpha-reductase.
This enzyme converts the body's own testosterone to DHT and is
present in the hair follicles and scalp at high levels. By blocking
the activity of 5-alpha-reductase and by lowering the concentration
of DHT in the scalp, Follicare ® helps to revitalize and protect the
hair follicle, allowing it to resume and continue production of a
healthy hair shaft.
The Follicare ® System helps fight DHT from the inside and the outside with scientifically demonstrated DHT blockers such as zinc, saw palmetto, nettle root, pygeum africanum, pumpkin seed extract, and fo ti root. Topical absorption of DHT blockers is enhanced using a patented liposome system that delivers key ingredients directly to the follicle.
The Follicare ® System provides required nutrients and proteins to the body. The Follicare ® System contains numerous vitamins, minerals, keratin protein and amino acids that the follicle requires to promote healthy and natural hair growth. There is strong scientific evidence that proper nutrition is needed for healthy hair growth. Hair begins its development stages in the papilla, where the living hair cells are in a liquid state. The papilla has a rich blood and nerve supply. Healthy hair is supplied with nutrients taken from the blood stream at the papilla.
The Follicare ® System works from the inside and outside to provide the protein, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals that the papilla requires to function properly.
The Follicare ® System cleanses the scalp. One of the most problematic causes of hair loss begins with clogged pores. Dead skin cells, spent scalp oils, and hair-care product residues combine with the DHT to cause seborrhea, where the residues solidify into a deposit or buildup that can inhibit the growth of new hair follicles. Bacteria thrive on these deposits, further damaging the scalp's health and ability to produce healthy hair ultimately leading to thinning hair and hair loss.
Follicare ®'s deep cleansing Nutrient Shampoo and the All Natural Topical Spray work together to deep clean the scalp and remove many of the harmful residues, while providing powerful antibacterial benefits.
Users of The Follicare ® System typically begin to see results within one month. At first, the user notices less hair loss; then new hair growth. (Hair usually grows at a rate of ½ to 1 inch per month.)
Who may use The Follicare ® System?
The Follicare ® System for Men may be used by males 18 and older.
Who should NOT use the Follicare ® System?
Children under 18 years of age
should not use The Follicare ® System. The Follicare ® System will
not prevent hair loss which may occur with the use of some
prescription and non-prescription medications, certain severe
nutritional problems, chemotherapy, or scarring of the scalp. If you
are unsure of the reason for your hair loss, you should consult your
doctor before use.
Will The Follicare ® System work for me?
In an independent pilot clinical
trial, all subjects using The Follicare ® System noted a slowing of
hair loss and new hair growth within the first or second month of
treatment. 50% of the participants noted new frontal hair growth at
the end of the six month trial. The amount of hair regrowth is
different for each person. Men who have not had success with other
hair regrowth programs, have reported marked results using the
Follicare ® System.
How soon can I expect results from using The Follicare ® System?
Since normal hair usually grows
only 1/2 to 1 inch per month, hair regrowth with The Follicare ®
System also takes some time. First, you should notice less hair loss
(less hair in the sink, or on your pillow). Second, you should
notice new hair growth.
If The Follicare ® System is working, what will the new hair look like?
At first, hair growth may be
soft, downy, lighter color hair. After further use, the new hair
should be the same color and thickness as the other hairs on your
How long do I need to use the Follicare ® System?
You will start to see results
after just 8 weeks of using the product. New hair growth will be
fine at that time. You will also notice at this time that you are
not losing nearly as much hair as you had been prior to using
Follicare ®. After six to twelve months of continued use as directed,
you will be able to see your best results. As with any product that
is correcting an unwanted condition, continued use will be needed to
maintain the results you desire and continue the hair growth process.
What happens if I completely stop using The Follicare ® System?
Continuous use of The Follicare ®
System is needed to maintain hair regrowth. If you completely stop
using The Follicare ® System, your natural hair loss process will
probably cause you to lose your newly regrown hair over a period of
time, and the hair loss cycle you had experienced will resume.
How long will a bottle of Follicare ® All Natural Topical Spray last?
Each bottle of Follicare ® All
Natural Topical Spray contains 2 ounces, and should last 25-30 days
when used as directed.
Can I use The Follicare ® System more than twice a day? Will it work faster or better?
No. Follicare ® will not work
faster or better if used more than directed. Healthy hair takes time
What will I experience when using The Follicare ® System All Natural Topical Spray?
The Follicare ® All Natural
Topical Spray contains peppermint oil, which can cause a mild
tingling sensation. Users have reported this effect to decrease
after one or two weeks of continuous use. In addition, when you
first start using Follicare ®, you may see some reddening of the
scalp and feel a slight heat sensation. This will dissipate after
approximately 30 minutes. This minor discomfort is for a good reason!
It is the result of increased blood flow in the area that is
bringing necessary nutrients to the hair follicle to help you grow
new hair. After a few days of use, these slight symptoms will become
much less noticeable.
What are the most common side effects from using The Follicare ® System?
The Follicare ® All natural Topical Spray contains ingredients which may cause burning or irritation of the eyes or sensitive skin areas. If Follicare ® accidentally gets into these areas, rinse with large amounts of cool tap water. Contact your doctor if irritation persists.
If you combine The Follicare ® All Natural Topical Spray with the Extra Strength 5% Minoxidil you may experience those side effects related to minoxidil use. Please read the instructions and precautions in the minoxidil package.
The Follicare ® System contains two topical solutions. The All Natural Topical Spray, and the Extra Strength 5% Minoxidil. Does the Follicare ® System alter, or change the way minoxidil works?
No. The rest of the Follicare ® system (All Natural Topical Spray, Nutritional Supplement, and Nutrient Shampoo) does not in any way change, or alter the effect of the Extra Strength 5% Minoxidil (packaged separately).
What happens if I choose not to use the Extra Strength 5% Minoxidil?
For optimal results, we encourage
you to use all components although many men have experienced great
results without it.
Can I use hair sprays, mousse, or conditioner along with The Follicare ® System?
There is no need to change your
usual hair care routine when using The Follicare ® System, however,
you should apply Follicare ® before applying styling aids. It is
recommended that you let your hair air dry for 5 - 10 minutes before
blow drying. Follicare can be adapted into your hair styling regime.
You need to find the one that works best for you.
Can I have my hair colored or permed or use hair relaxers while using Follicare ®?
We have no information that these
treatments change the effect of Follicare ®. To avoid possible scalp
irritation, you should make sure all of the Follicare ® solution has
been washed off the hair and scalp before using these chemicals.
What if I miss an application, or forget to use The Follicare ® System?
If you miss one or two daily
doses of The Follicare ® System, just continue with your next dose.
You should not make up for missed applications.
Can I apply the Follicare ® All Natural Topical Spray and wash my hair an hour later?
Yes, but for The Follicare ® All
Natural Topical Spray to work best, you should allow it to remain on
the scalp for about 4 hours before washing.
Can I work out, go swimming, or go out in the rain?
If possible, apply Follicare ® All Natural Topical Spray to a dry scalp after swimming, or wait about 4 hours after application before going swimming. If you are going to work out and sweat, wear a headband to prevent sweat from running into your eyes. Use proper precautions.
Can I use The Follicare ® System for baldness or hair loss in babies or children?
No. The Follicare ® System must
not be used to treat baldness or hair loss in babies or children.
Are there any special warnings about the use of the Follicare ® All Natural Topical Spray?
No. The Follicare ® All Natural Topical Spray does not contain minoxidil. Some individuals are concerned about the potential side effects of Minoxidil and choose not to use the topical minoxidil (packaged separately). If you do use the Extra Strength 5% Minoxidil, read the directions carefully before use.
As a general rule, you should consult with your physician if you:
Have no family history of
Have sudden hair loss
Have patchy hair loss
Do not know the reason for your hair loss
Follicare Minoxidil 2% for Women
The regrowth system is for women
who have a general thinning of hair on top of the scalp.
We all know it takes time to regrow hair. However, with this Follicare Minoxidil Extra Strength for women, results may occur at 2 months with twice daily usage. For some women, it may take at least 4 to 6 months for results to be seen.
Continued use is necessary or hair loss will begin again. If you do not see hair regrowth in 4 to 6 months, stop use. In studies with 5% Minoxidil Extra Strength Topical Solution for women, hair regrowth has not been shown to last longer than 48 weeks of continuous treatment in large clinical studies.
The amount of hair regrowth is different for each person. Follciare Minoxidil Extra Strength for women will not work for all women. Not intended for frontal baldness or a receding hairline
