Product Questions

How does HairGenesis work™?
Both male and female pattern hair loss disorders are believed to result from the hormonal conversion of testosterone to a substance known as DHT (Di-Hydro Testosterone). A key step in this process is the conversion of testosterone to DHT via the enzyme 5 alpha reductase. Reduced form DHT binds to specific cellular points within susceptible hair follicles known as androgen receptor sites. This binding causes changes in the morphology (growth pattern) of the hair. The follicle and accompanying structures begin a process of miniaturization. The hair shrinks in diameter. Over time, the scalp ultimately has more skin showing and less hair. HairGenesis™ stops this process from occurring by blocking several key points in this metabolic process. In doing so, HairGenesis™ prevents the cascade of events that result in hair loss due to thinning hair and baldness (alopecia). Learn more about why HairGenesis™ works.

What is HairGenesis™?
HairGenesis™ is the first botanically derived treatment designed to arrest pattern hair loss and baldness in both men and women. It consists of several botanically-based products, each of which contains DHT blocking ingredients. HairGenesis™ is the only hair loss treatment program which has been successfully tested in independent and controlled FDA-regulated IRB-monitored (Institutional Review Board) double-blind research, demonstrating safety and effectiveness.

The HairGenesis™ Oral Softgel formula is based on a carefully balanced combination of nutritional substances. These botanicals have been compellingly shown to block the degenerative effects of the body chemical DHT implicated in the onset and progression of pattern hair loss. Thus, the goal of HairGenesis™ oral softgels (DHT blockers) is to treat the problem systemically, and block the negative progression of pattern hair loss and baldness before it has a chance to do damage to the hair follicles and roots.

In contrast, HairGenesis™ Activator Serum (lotion) is a topically-delivered formula designed to use directly on the affected scalp area. It combines active botanical substances found in the oral SoftGels into a highly potent solution designed specifically to treat the scalp directly. HairGenesis™ Activator Serum was made to use along with HairGenesis™ oral softgels. This powerful treatment system therapy works best when used in combination.

What is the key ingredient in HairGenesis™?
It is not just one key ingredient that makes HairGenesis™ so effective and safe to use. Rather, through 10 years of on-going product research and development, scientists have been able to create formulations which contain precise amounts of specific ingredients which are then combined in a proprietary mix and produced in a proprietary method of process to enable them to work together properly.

All ingredients are necessary in order to achieve the excellent results achievable with the proper use of HairGenesis™. Just as a gourmet recipe requires an exact blending of specific ingredients at precise levels, HairGenesis™ is also composed of a unique combination of nutritional substances designed to protect your hair, stop hair thinning and hair loss and help your hair to grow back naturally.

Have there been any medical studies conducted on these products?
Yes. In fact, Hair Genesis is™ the only Non-Drug hair loss treatment to ever demonstrate safety and efficacy in an independent clinical study under FDA-regulated IRB Monitored (Institutional Review Board) placebo-controlled, double-blind research.

The other products that have such an FDA-regulated study are the drugs Rogaine™ and Propecia™.

One of the reasons many other companies do not have such independent double-blind studies performed is that it costs so much to perform this kind of high-level research test.

Also, you may want to read about these other independent research studies and clinical studies about pattern hair loss and baldness.

Does HairGenesis™ cure hair loss?
No hair loss treatment product is a cure for baldness or hair loss. Male and female pattern hair loss presents primarily as a qualitative change. That means that each affected hair becomes progressively thinner over time. So HairGenesis™ works by inhibiting the DHT Metabolism process that causes this hair loss and supporting the natural growth of your hair through clean, healthy hair roots and follicles.

How does HairGenesis™ compare with Rogaine™ Minoxidil?
HairGenesis™ is the first botanically-derived hair growth system designed to treat pattern hair loss and baldness in both men and women. As such, it is completely safe and effective for both men and women of all races to use.

It is also the only Non-Drug hair loss treatment program that is clinically proven by an independent and peer-reviewed FDA-Regulated, IRB-Monitored double-blind medical study that shows that it is both safe and effective.

There are four botanically-based products, each of which contains clinically-proven DHT blockers. Using the products together helps to maximize the effectiveness of each of them and helps you to stop losing your hair by attacking the DHT both orally and topically. This is something which Rogaine does not do.

Rogaine is a lotion, whose key ingredient is Minoxidil. It is applied topically to the scalp. It does not work on all areas of the scalp, particularly the front receding hair line area, if one has experienced noticeable thinning hair or significant hair loss.

Also it does not work on the back portion of the scalp. Take a look at the Norwood hair loss chart. Furthermore, Rogaine™ does not effectively treat the root cause of hair loss on a long-term basis, which is the degenerating effects of DHT. That's why you need to keep using Rogaine continuously once you start.

Rogaine is available in 2% and 5% solutions. Based on clinical studies, the 2% solution helps only about 26% of men and 19% of women to experience moderate re-growth of their hair. Moreover, according to the makers of Rogaine, if you start using it, and then stop, within 4 - 12 months you will definitely lose all of the hair you may have grown back. 

Read this comparison chart between HairGenesis™ and Rogaine and Minoxidil. You may also learn more about how Rogaine and Minoxidil work in hair loss treatment products, why it can cause side effects and what the FDA says about its comparatively lower success rate in treating hair loss.

Finally read this product comparison of Propecia, Proscar, Finasteride and Rogaine.

How does HairGenesis™ compare with Avacor™ Minoxidil?
Avacor™ is another hairloss treatment product which relies on the blood pressure medication Minoxidil. As such, it has some of the same drawbacks, potential negative side effects, warnings and disadvantages as Rogaine™ and generic 2% and 5% Minoxidil products do. Hair Genesis™ costs much less, is much more effective, does not use Minoxidil or other drugs and also works on all areas of your scalp, unlike Avacor™. Read this comparison chart between HairGenesis™ and Avacor™ and then decide for yourself if HairGenesis™ would be a better choice for you.

How does HairGenesis™ compare with the hair loss drus Propecia™, Proscar and Dudasteride™ (Finasteride)?
Propecia (1mg Finasteride) is a synthetic drug, taken orally, based on the prostate drug Proscar (5mg Finasteride) and regulated by the FDA. It is available from a doctor by prescription only and may only be used men. Studies show that it works for about 48% of the men who use it. It generally costs between $400 to $600 per year to use. In comparison, the HairGenesis™ 12-month Best Value Pack costs just $369 per year and a year's supply of the Oral Soft Gels alone is just $269.

Propecia has been shown to present possible negative and adverse side effects with prolonged use, including those that affect the normal functioning of male hormones in men. According to the makers of Propecia, if you start using it, and then stop, within 12 months you will definitely lose all of the hair you may have grown back. Women are strictly forbidden to use or even touch the drug, especially if they are pregnant or nursing.

As stated above, HairGenesis™ is the first botanically-derived hair growth system designed to treat pattern hair loss and baldness in both men and women. As such, it is completely safe and effective for both men and women of all races to use. All of the products contain clinically-proven DHT Blockers. Using the products together helps to maximize the effectiveness of each of them and helps you to stop losing your hair by attacking the DHT both orally and topically.

You would use the revitalizing and thickening shampoo and conditioner as you would normally use shampoo and conditioner. You would use the topical serum lotion, also containing DHT Blockers, just once a day, in the evening.

What is more, HairGenesis™ is also completely safe for both men and women to use and both may use the exact same dosage and concentration level of the topical activator serum. Finally, the oral soft gels (DHT blockers), which are taken twice a day, are also completely safe for both men and women to use. For more information, please read this product comparison of Propecia, Proscar, Finasteride and Rogaine.

If HairGenesis™ is really so good, why don't you advertise?
("How come I haven't heard of it before?")

Hair Genesis™ has been on the market for ten years. The manufacturer has invested a lot of money into on-going research and development to make a better product than other hair growth treatment products available. As a result, the formulas used in the products are now the 4th generation of products to be produced.

It was decided that it was more important to first develop a better product that truly works, and is also safe for both men and women to use, than to put that money into large advertising campaigns.

And since the products do work, there are thousands of satisfied consumers. Naturally, they recommend it to their friends, co-workers and others. That being said, the manufacturer does plan to start doing advertising in the very near future.

Usage Questions

When should a person begin using HairGenesis™ hair loss treatment hair growth products?
HairGenesis™ is recommended for men and women over age 18 who have begun experiencing losing their hair or have the symptoms of thinning hair due to male or female pattern hair loss and baldness.

back to top

How long do I have to use HairGenesis™ before I see results?
Scalp hair grows rather slowly. Due to this gentle rate which averages about 1/2" per month, it will generally take three to six months of regular use in order to fully appreciate the benefit of using this remarkable hairloss treatment program.

Each individual hair on your scalp grows from two to five years. This is known as the anagen stage of hair growth. The hair then goes through a resting phase of approximately three months. This process is known as the telogen stage. When you begin to suffer the effects of pattern hair loss, the anagen cycle becomes shorter and the telogen cycle occurs more frequently. This means you have fewer and fewer hairs growing on your scalp at any given moment in time.

It is thought that in addition to protecting the hair follicles from getting smaller, which causes the hairs in those affected follicles to grow in thinner and smaller, HairGenesis™ may affect the duration of hair growth more broadly.

Think of this in relation to the leaves on a tree. When autumn arrives, the leaves on a tree shed. When spring returns, so do the leaves. Although human scalp hair sheds in a mosaic pattern, and not all at once, (the same way each hair has its own individual time clock) the analogy is still valid.

The onset of pattern hair loss is to your scalp hair as shorter summers and longer winters are to a tree. In other words, a tree subjected to long winters and short summers would produce fewer leaves, which would grow for a shorter and shorter duration of time. HairGenesis™ is like a rejuvenation treatment that ushers in longer summers and shorter winters for your hair. The point is, the greater number of hairs you have in place and growing on your scalp, the thicker your hair appears.

How long will I have to use the products?
Results vary by person. There are also other factors besides the harmful effects of DHT which can affect good results. These include diet and nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress, alcohol, heredity and other environmental factors. Nevertheless, many people prefer to try the products for an initial 3 to 6 months period of time, and then continue for another 12 months of regular use, or until they reach their desired level of hair re-growth and thickness.

The actual length of time needed to achieve your personal goals will vary. You didn't lose your hair overnight, and so it will take time to grow back. Pattern hair loss is a process which usually takes place over many years. Therefore one should not expect that any hair loss treatment product will magically regrow all their hair back in just a few short months. We are talking about body physiology here and the re-growth cycle can take many, many months. We have to be realistic about this.

But by the end of 12 months of regular proper usage with the products, most people will already have achieved very noticeable good results.

After that, some people may continue using all or just some of the products in a maintenance type program. What that means is that you would probably continue to use the Oral Soft Gels (DHT blockers), but use less or none of the topical serum, shampoo or conditioner.

One of the nice things about the Hair Genesis™ line of products is that you may purchase any of them individually. So at some point in time in the future, when you have reached a desired level of hair growth or thickness, you can decide whether you want or need to continue using the topical serum, shampoo and conditioner for instance.

You will better be able to make that decision after you have used the products and seen what kind of results they produce for you. Only then can you evaluate personally whether you need to continue with some kind of maintenance program and if so, which of the four products to continue using. Not every one will necessarily need to do this and each person's maintenance program may be different.

back to top

Why do I need to continue using HairGenesis™ even after I start to see results?
Your body continues to produce DHT, regardless of your decision to initiate or continue treatment. As we have discussed, DHT has been shown to cause pattern hair loss in both men and women. Although no hairloss treatment product can cure pattern hair loss, HairGenesis™ is a safe and effective solution which blocks DHT from causing damage to your hair. After a person achieves a certain level of hair re-growth and or thickness, he or she may wish to go on a maintenance-type program.

back to top

What will happen if I stop using the products?
Will I lose my hair, and if so, how soon?

HairGenesis™ is a treatment, albeit a remarkably safe and effective treatment against pattern hair loss in both men and women. Thus the benefit can be maintained only so long as the treatment is continued to some extent or another.

In order to more fully answer this question, let us consider a simple comparison with dental care.

If someone told you that you could use their special toothpaste for only six months and then never have to brush your teeth again, what would you think? The answer is rather obvious!

So if someone told you that you could use their special hair loss treatment product for just six months and then you would never have to use it again, what would you think? Again, the answer is the same.

If you stop brushing your teeth every day, bacteria and other germs may start to cause tooth decay. That's because that is simply part of body physiology. And tooth decay will continue whether you choose to do something about it or not.

In the same way, DHT Metabolism (the formation of harmful DHT in the body) is part of body physiology. It too normally continues whether you choose to treat it or not.

So as part of your daily personal hygiene, if you want to maintain strong, healthy teeth, you would want to brush your teeth everyday, floss, eat right and visit a dentist at least once or twice a year.

Likewise, as part of your daily hygience, if you want to maintain strong, health hair, you would want to continue to take care of your hair, by using a product like the HairGenesis™ Oral Soft Gels, to continue to block the formation of harmful DHT in the body. You might not necessarily need to use the HairGenesis™ topical products as part of the maintenance program.

Like many people. you probably already take various vitamin and mineral supplements. You might want to consider taking one or two Oral Soft Gels a day along with these other nutritional supplements in order to continue to maintain strong healthy hair and prevent any more hair fall out.

We think that's a lot easier, a lot safer and a lot more effective to include one of the HairGenesis™ Oral Soft Gels when you take your other nutritional supplements, than to have to rub Minoxidil (such as used in Rogaine™, Avacor™ and Hair Advantage™) on your scalp, every day, twice a day (morning and night) continuously. Plus, the cost of buying a supply of just the Oral Soft Gels is significantly less than even the money-savings Best Value Pack.

Will HairGenesis™ cause unwanted hair growth in areas other than my scalp?
Absolutely not. In fact, the same metabolic mechanism that causes pattern hair loss on the scalp is believed to influence secondary hair growth in other areas of the body. Therefore, although this hypothesis has not been actively studied, HairGenesis™ may actually help reduce the onset of (DHT mediated) unwanted facial and body hair.

By way of contrast, note that people who use hair loss treatment products that rely on the blood pressure drug Minoxidil, such as Rogaine, Avacor or Hair Advantage, especially women, have reported 
growth of unwanted facial or body hairs. You can read more about the potential side effects from using Minoxidil.

back to top

I missed using the products for several days, will it hurt my progress?
It shouldn't hurt your overall success if you use the products long-term.  However, keep in mind that frequently skipping the regular proper use of the products may slow down or interfere with your overall progress.

back to top

Can my family use the shampoo or conditioner?
Yes. Both the revitalizing and thickening shampoo and conditioner are safe both men and women, so others in the family can use these products as well.

back to top

Can I use my own hair styling products? (Such as conditioners, hot oil treatments, gel, mousse, hairspray, hair rollers and curling irons)?
Yes. You may use your own hair styling products. You may also use your own conditioner. Some people prefer to use the HairGenesis™ Revitalizing and Thickening Conditioner, because unlike regular product, it also contains the same DHT Blockers as our shampoo. So you get an added benefit of using it.

When conditioning your hair or using hot oil treatments, be sure to rinse them out thoroughly. Also, always make sure that your hair is dry before applying the HairGenesis™ Topical Activator Serum.

back to top

Can I continue to perm, dye or straighten my hair?
Yes, although it is recommended you use a color rinse and a mild relaxer. Be sure not to use lye-based formulations as they may contribute to your hair loss.

back to top

Does HairGenesis™ work effectively on all types of hair?
Yes, HairGenesis™ will work on all types of hair. The reason for this is that the physiology of thinning hair and hair loss due to male or female pattern hairloss is the same in all races and ethnicities. Clinical tests on our products have proven them to be safe and effective on all hair types, regardless of race or gender, because the method for treating hair loss due to pattern hair loss and baldness is essentially generally the same for all people.

back to top

If I am not losing my hair, but just want to have thicker hair, can HairGenesis™ products help me?
Yes. You may use any or all of the products, or perhaps just the revitalizing and thickening shampoo and conditioner. You may purchase any of the products separately, although you will save money if you buy one of our Best Value Packs.

Health Questions

Will the Oral Soft Gels (DHT Blockers) interact with any of my medications and or other dietary supplements such as vitamins?

The Oral Soft Gels (DHT Blockers) are formulated using naturally occurring nutritional substances and they present no evidence of negative side effects or drug interactions whatsoever. If you have any further questions, we recommend that you consult your physician and show the list of ingredients. One of the advantages of using HairGenesis™ over other hair loss treatment products is this very reason that it is a naturally-derived, non-drug product line.

Are there any side effects of using the Oral Soft Gels (DHT Blockers)?

No, there are no known potential negative side effects or drug interactions from using the Oral Soft Gels. Again, this is one of the advantages of using HairGenesis™ over other hair loss treatment products

Other hair loss treatment and hair growth products have various unwanted and adverse side effects, such as the drug Finasteride (as used in Propecia and Proscar), which may cause testicular pain in men, swelling in the lips and face and other unpleasant reactions.

Some people have complained that the Minoxidil in Rogaine and similar products, for instance, causes their scalp to itch and flake. Read about other potential side effects of Rogaine and Minoxidil.

Additionally, some of the other hair growth products on the market are classified by the FDA as drugs, such as
Propecia, and may adversely affect the normal functioning of male hormones in men.

back to top

If I am pregnant or nursing, may I use HairGenesis™?
You can safely use the topical products: the revitalizing and thickening hair shampoo and conditioner as well as the topical activator serum. As a general rule, though, if you are pregnant or nursing, you should always consult with your doctor or health care practitioner before taking any medications or making any dietary changes. Therefore, even though the Oral Soft Gels are completely safe to use, we still recommend that you check with your doctor before using them.

We strongly suggest that you consult your doctor before using any hair loss treatment product which uses the blood pressure drug Minoxidil (such as
Rogaine, Avacor, Hair Advantage).

For those product that use synthetic components or are classified as drugs by the FDA (
Propecia, Finasteride, Proscar, Dudasteride), it can be extremely dangerous for pregnant or nursing women to use or even touch those products at all.
