OK here is my home made concoction:

Alba basic emollient lotion - 4 oz
KGF -
Chrysin
niacin
Idebenone (it is somewhat allergenic  - try CoQ10 instead)
Copper peptide (newly added)

I am 50 years old, and have always had rather flat hair (though not thinning per se.)  I wanted to see if I could make it fuller, as well as reduce a "whorl" at the back of my part, that I've had forever.

I have been using this concoction (but without the copper peptide) for about a month.  I noticed right away fewer hairs lost whilst /after shampooing - from quite a lot (30-40 /normal) to almost nothing.  The whorl also seems less noticeable / more obscured.

Since reading about copper peptides in other hair health topicals (at other online sites), I added that too (today). I will report back.  The other copper peptide hair topicals suggested twice-weekly use.

There are lots more in our hair serum with KGF. Any reason why you are not using our serum?

"Please remember that you are telling our clients that KGF causes hair loss, which contradicts the research published in scientific journals. I do accept anecdotal evidence, but only when there is no research published. "



I would be interested to read the published articles that you are refering to. Can you post a link or point me to them please. Thanks!

Today is Sunday and I am having my coffee before a busy family day.

Thanks so much! I have a compulsive need to over research everything!   But it makes me feel more comfortable about putting things in or on myself if I know how it is supposed to be working.
