One to two weeks prior to you starting the HairPrime® Treatment
Program, count the number of hairs that you lose daily after washing and
brushing/combing/styling your hair. This may require you to place a piece
of wire mesh over the drain in your bathtub, shower or sink. The average
hair loss may be as many as 100 hairs a day, but it is important to know
YOUR daily average hair loss.
After the first month's COMPLIANT
use of the HairPrime® products, we do not expect the average person to notice
any difference as the hairs that have been affected by DHT will most likely
fall out due to the shortened growth cycle. [DHT, dihydrotestosterone, has
been linked to hair loss and thinning due to its effect on shortening the
growth phase cycle of the hair from 3-5 years to 3-5 weeks. Since hair only
grows on the average ¼ to ½ inch a month, it is obvious why a shortened
growth cycle yields such short and fine hair only to fall out prematurely.]
If after the first month your hair loss is worse than before, then we suggest
you stop using HairPrime® and contact us to review your situation.
After the second month, the average
person finding success using the HairPrime® products experiences a significant
reduction of daily hair loss. For example, a person losing 100 hairs a day
before the treatment has daily hair loss of only 50-70 hairs a day. Please
realize that since hair only grows ¼ to ½ inch a month, the individual hairs
that only began their growth cycle again after falling out in the first
month will be no longer or thicker than the baby fine hairs that grew prior
to your using HairPrime® .
After the third month, if the
hairs that started their new growth cycle in the second month grow beyond
½ inch in length, we may consider this a sign of the beginning of conversion
from vellus to non-vellus hair, thus the growth cycle extending beyond 3-5
weeks. If by now your daily hair loss count has not decreased from before
using HairPrime® , then the program may not be working for you. Rather than
waste your time and money, we suggest that you stop using the product and
After the fourth month, the daily
hair loss count should be consistently less than before the use of HairPrime®
. Furthermore, the hairs that began their growth cycle in the second month
should be 1 inch or slightly longer if the conversion has taken place.
After the six month, along with
the continued growth in length and thickness and reduced daily hair loss
count, you should be experience an improvement in the hair anchor...i.e.
the hair should be more difficult to physically pull out. You may test by
picking a hair that is about 2 inches long and tugging on it firmly.
After 12 to 18 months, each hair
should have started a new growth cycle and at least 50%-90% of the hairs
should have achieved a conversion from vellus to non-vellus, terminal extended
growth. After achieving satisfactory results, you may adjust your application
of the topical treatments down to twice a week, once, once a week, once
every two weeks, etc. until you find your own maintenance regimen.
