Dear Dr. Cole, What are the advantages to using Hair Cycle Shampoo?
You have mentioned in previous questions that Hair Cycle Shampoo contains “natural” ingredients. What harm is there in other products that contain chemicals? Aren’t they in place for my benefit as a consumer?
If the Hair Cycle Shampoo does not contain sodium lauryl sulfate then how can I know it will clean my hair thoroughly?
Hello. i am receiving a hair transplant in 2 days and wanted to know when do i use the biotin spray? Is it immediately after im finished or do i use the saline spray my doctor gives me first?
biotin can be used during the surgery and immediately after the procedure. A light mist should be applied every hour while awake. One should not apply the product too liberally. One does not want the product applied so heavily that it drips down on their forehead. Apply a light mist only to the grafted area and even the donor area if you like.
You can use the saline spray until you receive your order of Biotin or you can use Biotin spray instead of the saline spray.
I am 20 years old and have semi curly hair. The hair were not very dense but still they were quite heavy. I have a low level of hb and I got my s. ferritin checked which was also very low. I have excessive hair loss, specially in front and sides above the ears.My hair have become almost 60-65% Can you please suggest what I should do? I am a vegetarian, but if my health demands I can consume non veg too.
You need to be checked for iron loss. Ferritin is a measure of iron. You need iron to make red blood cells. If you iron is low, your body does not make enough red blood cels and you will become anemic. Vegetarians are prone to this since they do not eat red meat. Given that you are only 20 years old, the most serious causes of iron deficiency are not likely. That would be blood loss due to colon caner. Women often have a low iron level due to loss of blood from a heavy period or vaginal flow of blood each month. You probably need to have iron supplements in your diet, but also have yourself checked for more serious problems. Iron deficiency anemia is a common cause of hair loss, but it is not the only cause of hair loss. The low iron level and the anemia are a far more serious problem that you need to have evaluated by your physician immediately. If your loss is due to iron deficiency anemia, treatment will stop your hair loss. I honestly can't say that treatment will reverse your hair loss if it is due to a iron deficiency anemia.
This is a patient who shared his experience with the Hair Cycle products 2 months post surgery. As you can see in our testimonial page consistently, hair cycle really helps fast healing for hair restoration.
I had an hair transplant 2 months ago and all went great.
In terms of my routine, I shampoo with hair cycle every day, alternating Hair Cycle with Nizoral (the latter only 2x/week). I exercise at least 5X/week, and follow a healthy diet. Two days ago, I decided to trim my hair very short, to improve my overall appearance. I did not include picture, but I can comment that there is no visible sign of the graft removal in the donors areas. They really look great, like nothing ever happened ! Hopefully, I will be able to document that in my next update. This is true (as you can see in this set of pics) also for the beard and chest, where only some minor redness remains.
The hair transplant photos show the scalps of individuals who have had Hair Transplant done on their scalps. The hair transplant photos make the transplant scars clearly visible to the naked eye. Seeing the Hair Transplant photos all of a sudden may make them appear gross on the very first viewing but then the viewer will gradually get used to these photos.
Surgeons all over the world usually follow two procedures while doing a hair transplant surgery. The first method of the surgery involves Strip harvesting. In this procedure, a piece of the scalp is cut and taken out from that part of the head containing hair. This piece of scalp is cut into very fine pieces. These pieces along with the attached hair follicles are grafted in that part of the head that is experiencing massive thinning of the hair.
The second method is known as Follicular Unit Extraction. In this method, strands of hair are plucked from that part of the head that has a denser hair growth and artificially planted into that part of the head that is prone to hair loss and baldness.
When we talk about the advantages of having a hair transplant surgery, we cannot but feel happy about the fact that we can cure baldness and thinning of hair. This comes as a blessing especially for those who are pursuing a career in either acting or modeling.
But then there is a negative side to the hair transplant surgery. This is because, this apparently welcoming surgery procedure will leave behind a hair transplant scar on your scalp that you need to carry on for quite a few days. For those pursuing a modeling or an acting career, this may not sound pleasant enough.
Of course there are ways to get rid of the hair transplant scar. The best way to do so is to opt for the MHT procedure. MHT stands for Micro Hair Technique. By this procedure, an individual will experience a marked reduction in the hair transplant scar.
According to the surgeons, if an individual shaves off his or her hair following the MHT, then there is a ninety five percent chance that the scar will go unnoticed by the others. It is only when the hair gets long; the scar will become visible again.
The net is full of hair transplant photos. The websites and the clinics posting these photographs make sure that the privacy of the patients is kept secured. Previously the scars used to be a cause of embarrassment for many but now as the scars are getting healed, more and more people are coming forward and volunteering to get clicked with the scar as well as without the scar.
I have a 2 year old bottle half used haircycle biotin spray from a previous hair transplant. I just got another hair transplant and I am wondering if it is still safe to use or has it expired?
Hair cycle biotin spray should be effective and safe to use for two years if kept in normal room conditions during that time. If you leave it in extreme cold or heat, then the life span will be less. In that your bottle is already 2 years old, you might want to buy a new bottle. You might consider the smaller travel size bottle since you used only 1/2 your bottle last time. With the biotin spray, you need to apply only a light mist. You do not need to soak your scalp such that it drips down your forehead. The latter is too heavy of an application.
Biotin is a water soluble B-complex vitamin, that our body, unfortunately, does not store .One has to ingest it daily. There are several natural sources of biotin in foods like eggs, walnuts, peanuts, whole-wheat breads, pork, salmon, soybean, cauliflower etc. If such foods are not part of the daily diet, one can get biotin through supplements. Most multi vitamin pills already contain biotin in some amounts.
I would like to know if its safe to use your products if I am not actually suffering from hair loss? I have not been diagnosed with such a condition nor do I believe I am shedding more hair than I normally should. However, I do think my hair in general is not as thick and does not grow as long as it used to in my younger years. I am 34. I was wondering if I used your shampoo and conditioner if that would help thicken my hair and let it grow longer? And would it be safe to use if I am not suffering from medically diagnosed hair loss
All Haircycle products are made from natural ingredients that are completely safe unless you know that you are allergic to one or more of the ingredients. Topical allergies can occur in anyone. Some people are even allergic to the coins in their pockets or the elastic in their underwear. Of course such allergies are extremely uncommon including those to the ingredients in Haircycle products.
Haircycle products are specifically formulated to promote longer hair. We feel they may increase the duration of anagen, but they also could increase the rate of hair growth. While Haircycle products are specifically formulated to help those with hair coverage, there is no evidence that they reduce hair loss or reverse hair loss due to male pattern baldness. Haircycle products are very healthy for you scalp and hair. They are safe for all individuals to use and much healthier for your scalp than the majority of shampoos that contain chemical ingredients that are man made rather than natural.
Hello, I am a hair transplant patient. I had ~2300 FUE grafts done about a week ago. I love the Biotin spray, it's helping the healing process along, but I have a few questions about it:
1) On my forehead and the scalp area outside of where the grafts are, the skin seems to be peeling slightly, as if after a sunburn. I'm assuming this is because the Biotin spray promotes shedding of dead skin? Just want to make sure this is normal.
2) After all of my scabs are gone, how long should I continue to use the Biotin spray? I have read that it helps with the redness and also makes the grafts more healthy, so continued use makes sense...I just don't know for how long. And if so, I'm assuming I should decrease my usage from once an hour?
3) Does the biotin spray have any benefit for for other areas of my scalp where the hair is thinning, but did not receive any grafts, such as my crown?
We have noticed that Biotin spray can produce some skin peeling affects, as well. The skin peeling is really a form of a chemical peel. We first noticed that this occurs in some patients about 4 or 5 years ago. We found that the peeling left a younger, fresh layer of skin under the skin that peels. This is highly advantageous and something that many people pay thousands of dollars to achieve. You are getting younger skin at no additional cost. That is one of the advantages of Biotin spray. We were so excited about this that we made a version in a skin cream form that also helps to produce younger skin We never marketed it to the public, but many staff members have been very happy with this low cost, chemical peel that results in younger looking skin.
You may continue to use the Biotin spray until it is gone. It is very healthy for the grafts. We have not done any research into whether Biotin spray helps improve your thinning hair. We are precluded from discussing any affects on hair growth due to limitations imposed by the FDA. Therefore, there is no advantage to studying this.
My hair is colored hair,but my hair is always thick,now am losing hair i feel its becoming thinner.I oil my hair once in a week and keep it for 2 hours and wash it.pls advise me any other remedy for making hair thick and strong,to stop hair fall?
I would like to inform you that some hair dyes are damaging to the hair follicals and cause the hair to actully break. Hair loss in females is usually not evident until the later years (40s-50s). There are many different ways to give hair a fuller appearance. Hair product that are all natural will help and hair products containing anagen stimulators as well. Also, the amount of iron in the blood may cause hair loss in females. Lastly, there is also a chance that the thyroid is not in good condition. These reasons in addition to stress, can cause hair loss for females.
There were many discuttions about this issue, i strongly advise you to read them as they will provide you with lots of information:
