I originially wrote this post in 2020. It is now updated due to the arrival of various new hair growth products containing one or more of: Redensyl, Capixyl, Procapil and Baicapil.
Of the hundreds of natural hair loss products and peptides, only several dozen are well known. Among these, there are four whose names end in “yl” or “il” that I have heard mentioned a few times recently. These four are:
- Redensyl™ is a trademark of Givaudan (Switzerland) that is produced by subsidiary Induchem.
- Capixyl™ is a trademark of Lucas Meyer Cosmetics (IFF — US).
- Procapil™ is a trademark of Sederma (Croda — France).
- Baicapil™ is a trademark of Provital (Spain).
Update July 6, 2022: There is a great new product from Ifra called Minimalist Hair Growth Actives 18%. On Amazon it says it was first released in August 2021. We finally have a hair loss treatment that contains all four of the trademarked ingredients that I mentioned above.
Edit: Thanks to “Yoda” for pointing out that there is also a second product that contains all four peptides. It is made by “The Ordinary” and is called “Multi-Peptide Serum for Hair Density“. Note that the ingredients do not list any of these four peptides, but the company site mentions them under the “Technology” section. They classify all four as “technologies present” in the formula. A bit strange.
This Minimalist hair growth product contains 5% Capixyl, 3% Redensyl, 3% Procapil and 4% Baicapil. It also contains 3% Anagain. For a sum total of 18%. AnaGain™ is based on organic pea sprouts and made by Mibelle Group (Switzerland).
According to the manufacturer Ifra, all these ingredients are directly obtained from their respective manufacturers. The advantages of each ingredient per the product insert are as follows:
- Capixyl modulated dihydrotestostaerone (DHT).
- Redensyl promoted hair growth by reactivating hair follicle stem cells.
- Procapil strengthens the hair follicle and its anchoring.
- Baicapil extends the anagen growth phase of the hair cycle.
- Anagein reduces hair loss by “inducing dermal papilla cells”.
I am skeptical about some of these claims. However, combining all these ingredients into one product seems very interesting. Taken individually, I would not expect much from any of these peptide based products. Individually, they cannot be as effective as either of the two FDA approved hair loss drugs on the market: Finasteride and Minoxidil.
Note that a peptide is a short chain of amino acids. Make sure to read my detailed post on amino acids and hair growth.
Redensyl, Capixyl and Procapil Combination
It seems like there are a growing number of compounded products on the market that include more than one of these four ingredients. I list some of these “combo” products later in this post. You can get both serums and hair loss shampoos containing these combination ingredients.
Last month, a reader e-mailed me a link to a 2019 Turkish study that analyzed Redensyl plus Capixyl plus Procapil (“RCP”) combination topical hair loss treatment. The surprising conclusion was that it grew more hair in users than topical 5% Minoxidil. One of the before and after photos with clear new hair growth is pasted below.
Note that this “RCP” product is currently reserved by the Turkish Patent Institute under the name “Procare”. In the above mentioned study, the description of making this combination product seems relatively simple.
On Amazon, laser hair growth device manufacturer iRestore makes a Redensyl based Anti-Hair Loss Serum. Average reviews currently stand at 3.8/5 based on 320 ratings. However, very few of those have any before and after photos.
Redensyl stimulates stem cells and human fibroblasts from the dermal papilla to increase scalp hair growth. While Redensyl is side effect free, it is not officially approved to treat hair loss like Finasteride and Minoxidil.
Redensyl is made of a combination of natural botanical ingredients and plant extracts. It also contains Dihydroquercetin Glucoside (DHQG) and Epigallocatechin Gallate Glucoside (EGCG2). The latter has anti-inflammatory properties via the reduction of IL-8 release by keratinocytes. Redensyl is often described as a hair galvanizer that acts at the cellular level.
Many people find the synergistic effects of using Redensyl in combination with Minoxidil beneficial to hair growth.
Capixyl is a biomimetic signal peptide complex (acetyl tetrapeptide-3) that is combined with a red clover extract rich in Biochanin A. Red clover is known as trifolium pratense, which has proven hair growth and hair density increase benefits. It does this via the inhibition of 5-α-reductase activity; reduction of inflammation and cytokines; and stimulation of extracellular matrix (ECM) protein synthesis in the hair follicle vicinity.
Note that GroMd makes a shampoo and conditioner that includes both Redensyl and Capixyl. It also contains Hairgenyl, which is a peptide-rich yeast extract isolated from azalea flowers.
Procapil contains three plant-derived substances:
- Oleanolic acid, which is extracted from olive leaves. It inhibits 5α1 and 5α2 reductase enzymes, thereby reducing dihydrotestosterone (DHT) related hair loss.
- Apigenin, a flavonoid extracted from citrus peel. Aids in vasolidation and increases blood flow to the hair roots.
- Glycinehistidine-lysine peptides, which boost pro-matrix
metalloproteinase activity. This in turn benefits the metabolic
requirements of hair follicles.
One very popular product that contains both Procapil and Redensyl is Australian made BondiBoost HG shampoo. It is sulfate and paraben free and made for both women and men. It is also vegan and cruelty-free,
Further reading: Reduction of Hair-loss: Matrikines and plant molecules to the rescue.
Baicapil Joins the Club
A lesser known but still popular product is Baicapil. It contains a combination of three key botanical ingredients: Scutellaria baicalensis, soy sprouts and wheat sprouts. Scutellaria baicalensis contains Baicalin, an important ingredient in traditional Chinese herbal medicine. Baicalin is thought to increase hair growth via increasing canonical Wnt/β-catenin signaling and activating dermal papilla cells.
- On Amazon, there is a super expensive product called “More Hair Naturally 9: Advanced Stem Cell Therapy For Thinning Hair”. It contains clinical strength Biacapil, Redensyl and Capixyl. It also contains mountain ginseng root, bamboo sprouts and stem cells from adult human fat cells.
- Also available on Amazon is United Pure’s Hair Growth Support serum and shampoo line. It contains Redensyl, Baicapil and Capixyl.
- Update: Reader George found an interesting hair regenerator serum product from Spain-based Redenhair. It contains 3% Redensyl, 3% Procapil and 2% Capixyl.
- Update: Reader Tim pointed out that RevivHair Max Hair Stimulating Serum contains: Redensyl 5%; Acetyl Tetrapeptide-3, the active peptide in Capixyl; and Biotinoyl Tripeptide-1, the key peptide in Procapil. Moreover, it also contains Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17 (keratin stimulating peptide), often used to make eyebrows and eyelashes thicker.
Interestingly, reader “Toccata” posted the below comment on this blog in January 2019:
“A few posts ago, John Doe mentioned a company — More Hair Naturally — selling a ferociously expensive, all natural, topical treatment. I noticed it shared a lot of the same ingredients as another topical I bought last year. The difference being I paid $17CAD for 60ml and they are charging $125US! for 50ml.
The topical I bought is: Multi-Peptide Serum for Hair Density.
It was a whimsical purchase that I thought would be for an occasional ‘whatever’ application. But now that I’ve looked closer at the actual studies of the ingredients, I might give this a legitimate daily 12 month trial run. I also microneedle and use Minoxidil so I won’t be able to make a reliable judge on its actual efficacy.”
I assume that Toccata did not see any miracle results with this potion, but nonetheless quite interesting.
Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some frequently asked questions about Redensyl, Procapil and Capixyl.
Does Redensyl regrow hair?
Redensyl can regrow up to 10 percent of hair per some reviews and studies. Moreover, it can increase hair density and thickness significantly. It sends more hair follicles into the anagen phase of the hair growth cycle.
What are the ingredients in Redensyl?
Redensyl is made of a combination of natural botanical ingredients and plant extracts. It also contains Dihydroquercetin Glucoside (DHQG) and Epigallocatechin Gallate Glucoside (EGCG2).
What is Procapil?
Procapil contains three plant-derived substances: Oleanolic acid, which is extracted from olive leaves and inhibits the 5α1 and 5α2 reductase enzymes; Apigenin, a flavonoid extracted from citrus peel that aids in vasolidation and increases blood flow to the hair roots; and Glycinehistidine-lysine peptides, which boost pro-matrix metalloproteinase activity. This in turn benefits the metabolic requirements of hair follicles.
What is Capixyl and does it grow hair?
Capixyl is a biomimetic signal peptide complex (acetyl tetrapeptide-3) that is combined with a red clover extract rich in Biochanin A. Red clover is known as trifolium pratense, which has proven hair growth and hair density increase benefits.

I’m a chemist that formulates cosmetics. 90% of what you’ll find in Sephora comes through my lab. We use red clover extract in eye lash serums as a natural and less expensive alternative to Latanoprost. It’s just as efficacious.
Thanks, that is very good information!
Very interresting ! On what pathway red clover extract works ??
Did you tried to formulate a topical for hair with pretty good results ?
> Comparing a crappy natural extract which has nothing to do with prostaglandins (might even decrease its expression) with a full pgf2a analogue? Really?
@ admin, there is a reddit post of someone claiming their doctor told them to take Redensyl instead of minox. There then people published they compared it to 1% minox. Idk, but I can post the link if allowed or one can just type in the keywords.
Srsly? what type of doc? lemme guess: dermatologist?
Someone should come out and explain how redensyl is supposed to work.
Redensyl is according to their study composed of almost no actives: https://i.imgur.com/rQj46h4.png
And then in lotions they dilute it further to 1-5% depending on the product.
Same with the iRestore study they show on Amazon. 7-10 days invitro, probably with pure redensyl, where you have no further dilution, and can bath the hair follice 24/7 in it. I could also get into minoxidil timeframes and concentrations but the data is so old, what a waste of time.
I won’t even bother looking into the others. All nice sounding trademarks with little to nothing behind it. These kind of studies are usually poorly done under conflict of interest.
There’s a treatment that is 11x more efficient then prostoglandin. I used it – it has restored my hair.
If you want to find out about it, feel free to let me know.
Tell us about it.
I would definitely like to know about that.
What is the product you are using.
Yes Kate, please what is name of the product you used that is more effective than prostaglandin and restored your hair? Thanks.
Please let me know my hair has got so thin.
Hi, can you share more details about the same.
Ηello! I would like to know about your treatment please!I have a serious problem with my hair!
Yes i would like to know about it.
I don’t have a comment, but I would like for Karen to send me info on the treatment she used and commented on in this posting site.
I would be interested to know what the product is and where you bought it.
Sure, post the link. If the comment does not get approved, it went to spam. Let me know and I can bring it out of the spam folder.
Where to buy redensyl for own beard oil product please suggest where i biy
Can you please tell me is capixyl better than procapil or redensyl for hair fall
What is your lab or company name?
Would red clover extract work on female temporal recession? (menopause hair loss). Is there a hair formulation I could get with that in it?
Is there an RCP topical for purchase like the one used in the pic above?
There’s that ‘The Ordinary Multi-Peptide Serum for Hair Density’ Admin linked above. It has Redensyl, Capixyl, Procapil, Baicapil, AnaGain, Caffeine, etc.
Honestly, I used it occasionally, no more than half of one bottle and just kinda forgot about it, no idea at all if it’s good.
The Minoxidil I used never moved my hair for better or worse in either direction (still NW4) but my scalp peeled which would periodically force me to stop topicals. I just bought the foam version so perhaps now I can truly commit to this Microneedling + Minoxidil unimpeded. Here’s hoping for a miracle.
hi toccata, have you seen any progress so far ?
Nice post. Nowadays, any post which isn’t dreaded news of Tsuji’s failure is welcomed.
Sorry. Didn’t mean to hint there has been one. I just meant we all know how many disappointments there have been in the last few years when it comes to potential breakthroughs.
It kinda feels inevitable that there is one coming from Tsuji, and I think if it does come, it will be the final hammer blow for most people who were hoping for something other than the self inflicted, slow chemical castration we’re currently undertaking with big pharma skittles.
I dont think it will fail, I think its going to be delayed. With the whole virus, trials all over the globe are cancelled because they can’t examine test subjects in person, so they have to redo the trial. Usually when you emailed Shiseido or replicel or any failing company they responded. Kyocera, organ technologies and all 3 of Tsuji’s emails are dead ends. They won’t respond. Maybe thats a good thing. Try emailing apple about a top secret project. You think they’re going to return the email?? Thats what we sound like. I will say this. They should of released an update like they stated a year ago. So I agree with you on that
I don’t think it will fail. Dr tsuji’s thing is unlike any other hair method that has failed in the past. You wanna why replicel failed it’s because they Didn’t clone the actual follicle and then transplant it to the bald area. If you watched the 2012 video from replicel and You thought that you could grow a full head of hair, you might as well give all your money to a Indian scammer then lol.
“..it will be the final hammer blow for most people who were hoping for something other than the self inflicted, slow chemical castration we’re currently undertaking with big pharma skittles.”
This made me laugh pretty hard. That said, I *wish* that worked for me. My hair loss seems to be autoimmune (hypothyroidism), and naturally I’m allergic to PPG (liquid minox was an absolute disaster, foam minox seems to have no effect). :/
Don’t know if this was already posted,20 percent minoxidil with carbixygas treatment and micro needling once a month
Wow. Admin, I’d love for you to review this. (Or direct me to the post if you already have.) :-)
Hey Rick, how can someone like me get access to the Red Clover extract as a liquid? Does it darken eyebrows as well?
would love to have a link for a high dosed red clover extract product for eyelashes aswell
any side effects similar to those noted when using prostaglandine analogue ?( darkening of upper eyelid/ or fat atrophy)
Admin do you know if winlevi is still going to be released next year thanks again
Everyone is focusing on the clover now! The main point of the article was that there are products on the market that combine 2-3 of the 4 mentioned trademarked peptides into one potion. The Turkish study described a not too difficult process of combining 3 of the peptides. Interesting.
We need more info in red clover !
LouiSarkozy my focus is on winlevi as well.
Reviserum max stimulating serum includes these ingredients, including 5 percent redensyl. (It also contains saw palmetto, just as a warning to anyone sensitive to dht suppression).
Thanks, but I thought it only included 1 of these 4 ingredients. Will recheck. They followed me on Twitter after I published this post!
No problem. I haven’t posted the link, but it looks like I was mistaken and it contains 3 out of the 4 (it doesn’t contain Baicipil).
Thanks Tim, I added the link and description in the post :-)
If this stuff would really work it would already be something bigger than what it really is… I keep my hopes up for Tsuji
I don’t know why we are talking about capixyl again when years back it has been proven to be BS on multiple forums.
You missed Kopexyl, my doctor in Brazil has always prescribed me this one with Minoxidil plus Prohairin. I’ve never even looked them up online util now haha
Thanks. But seems like Kopexil does not contain any natural ingredients.
@admin who has trials in germany because their economy is reopening quite a bit.
Is it follicum, breezula?
Right now Winlevi is going through FDA review. If it passes it has gotta be a near guarantee that Breezula will pass as well—the first approved topical antiandrogen and no sexual side effects. Samumed, Breezula, Follicum. 1-2-3. New era of hair loss medicine. Tsuji, Stemson, Rapunzel. New modes of hair transplantation. The train’s a-coming.
Have Stemson and Rapunzel been fully tested and ready for release? Can’t find anything on their website which says how far they are along with their product. These both look like they could take ten years minimum?
When Stemson secured funding from Allergan (June 27, 2019), their press release said: “The investment will advance Stemson’s final product development in preparation for human clinical trials…..” So they appear to have reasonable promise but are still pre-clinical.
Stemson announced last year officially that clinical trials were planned and filed for end of 20 or beginning of 21. Given current circumstances, I would assume it will be some time next year.
I have low hopes for Rapunzel.
Scientifically top for over 20 years (Christiano, Jahoda) but they are the furthest away from commercialisation. They love to do research, development not so much…
10 years is reasonable, but imho starting from the first solid reearch-publications of Terskikh which were around 2015. The final paper went public in 2018, where they proofed a robust and safe mass-production of follicles.
We shouldn’t forget that the research of these technologies always started much earlier; the first papers regarding cell-therapies from Tsuji were in 2007 (!), specifically hair was in 2011 and 2012. So OrganTechs research is 10 years old.
Oh by the way, Paul Kemp is also going strong. I couldn’t see any postponement in his endeavors, reading his latest newsletter. He in fact is my favorite in terms of being the first to go commercial, his therapy will be already in (limited) use next year. Introduced new researchers, got the funding. Competition is crucial, also for Tsuji!
Don’t lower your hopes too much for Rapunzel; they have a pretty solid plan using the robotic hair restoration surgery already in use:
“Using 3D-printing approaches, our goal is to engineer HFs as follicular units that can be integrated with surgical robots and facilitate effective hair transplantation surgery. […] Adaptation of this new technology by hair researchers, hair restoration surgeons and the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries will have overwhelming implications in the maintenance and regeneration of this complex human tissue.”
— According to their study they can generate 5000 hair follicles from a small 0.5 cm2 tissue sample. And they know how to grow it in the proper direction. But they do need our impatience behind them. Jahoda published this 36 years ago! https://www.nature.com/articles/311560a0
“The eventual application of this work to human hair replacement techniques can also be envisaged.” —1984
Well that proves me right, doesn’t it? That’s what I said: they are researchers, not developers. They are researching now for almost 40 years and gained a gigantic amount of knowledge, but developed nothing which would be of help. Which is almost a shame.
On the other hand it says one thing for certain: how incredibly far ahead Jahoda has been, pure genius. Imagine they would have started seriously developing in 1984? Man, we would have had an additional weapon for 20 years now!
Rapunzel won‘t happen. I hope they prove me wrong.
The technology is proven. They used human hair cells on animal trials. At this point its not a matter of if but when. When you multiply cells they lose their ability to perform the same functions. Proteins denature, etc. So maybe they had an issue where they couldn’t take one hair follicle and multiply it 10,000 times. I read an article from 2019 that organ technologies and Tsuji discovered the right number to be 7,000. After that the cells stopped working normally. And keep in mind they discovered a cell multiplying technique that multiples cells, 7,000 times. The most people could do before was 2. They just used a scaffolding technique which is brilliant. Price will definitely be for rich in beginning. But people don’t understand. Nobody wants to be the first to use this because nobody knows if it produces cancer or not. So if it WORKS, then it will get fast tracked for fda approval in U.S and other companies will do the same thing. Like I said matter of when not if. Like I said, I’ve been research hair for 5 years now, in med school. In my opinion this gets released in 2023, 2024 other companies start launching stuff, 2025 real results come in, 2026 global release.
Hahaha! See you back here in 2026 with the next installment of “Don’t worry guys, just 5 more years!”
lets be hopefull you’re right , do you know when we could get our hands on winlevi?
Does it make new hair appears in completely bald areas or it just increase the density? Is it equally efficacious in temple region?
Androgens tied with covid death
Smokers hairy bald… That’s all me.
Older people are more likely to be bald. Older people are also more likely to die from Covid.
Also, bald people have higher rates of heart disease. People with heart disease are more likely to die from Covid.
Yeah they said something about androgens being like hand rails for the virus.
Facebook attacked me with this ad after googling about REDENSYL
Any thoughts on this?
Product page also seems like one big ad :-)
opinions?would be this effective?
Thanks, great find. Added in post.
Question for admin and anyone else:
On various forums, I have seen people say that they use various treatments to attack hairloss from various angles.
At the moment, I can’t take finasteride (trying for baby) so I would like to try other options. What should I be looking at?
– I got oral minox from derm (just started. Low dose)
– I have foam minoxidil.
– I have Nizoral.
What else should I add to my regimine? Oral treatments are preferable, but I’m open to anything that could lead to visible thickening.
Stay with minoxidil and nizoral, if I were you I wouldn’t take oral minox..
I stopped taking finasteride for six months and nothing happened.
I have a oil that contains Redensyl but not Capixyl. Capixyl had worked great for me lately. Will the Redensly work as good as Capixyl? Is it okay to shift from Capixyl to Redensyl?
Hey, what about this product from Ordinary: serum for hair density. It seems to contain all the 3 molecules.
I have been using The Ordinary Multi-Peptide Serum for last few weeks.
based on the product info their serum contains
REDENSYL™ complex (with Larix Europaea Wood Extract and Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract), Procapil™ peptide complex (with Biotinoyl Tripeptide-1), CAPIXYL™ peptide complex (with Acetyl Tetrapeptide-3 and Trifolium Pratense Flower Extract), BAICAPIL™ complex (with Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Triticum Vulgare Germ Extract and Glycine Soja Germ Extract), AnaGain™ (Pisum Sativum Extract) and High-Solubility Caffeine (1% net Caffeine by weight).
Same. Have been using The Ordinary RCP serum + microneedling for ca. 2 months at this point (2 bottles). I can’t say for certain given the short time frame, but IMO all of these peptides are trash.
Is there any product on sale tat englobes all 3?
I’m following the HLC2020 site for several years, although I’m a woman. This is the only place with analytical reviews on new treatments for hair loss.
I’m not bald but one can easily see through the hair on my top head and look at my scalp, and of course people that I meet always do it and stare at my forehead. I’ve tried many natural treatments but none of these worked for me.
The last thing that I’m using is a serum, a shampoo and a conditioner from a Swiss company, branded Revalid. The shampoo and the serum contain redensyl 3 %. I don’t know if it will regrow any hair but the thing I’ve noticed is that it definitely reduced the number of hairs that I loose daily. I used to have my hand full of hairs after each combing and each time I touch my hair. I used to loose a lot of hair in the shower. Since I started using the serum daily I still have some hairs falling but I can count them and it’s like 10-20 hairs. Before that it was 5-6 times more than that every single time I combed/showered/did something to my hair. It may be important for other women who read this forum to note that while using this treatment the hair loss increased a little bit during my monthly cycle but it was not as dramatic as it was before the treatment. My hope is to save the hair that I currently have and slow down the progressive hair loss.
I hope my feedback is helpful for someone.
Thanks, that is definitely useful!
I am using Man Matters Resendyl and loreal Stemoxydine alongside with microneedling.
I had a shedding in the first month and a few weeks later an amazing regrowth. My hairline is thicker and not diffuse anymore. Hopefully my diffuse thinning crown get the same effect
Hello just found your website. Here is another study about redensyl https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32473084/
As I understand it clearly done about this product (redenyl ) which is sold in Greece .
In Greece also there is another product containing redensyl (by Helenvita) .
I would like to ask where I can find procapil,capixyl online to buy and how to dilute them to 2% 3% etc MYSELF. Thank you.
Hey Admin, when you say “We finally have a hair loss treatment that contains all four of the trademarked ingredients that I mentioned above” wouldn’t The Ordinary Multi-Peptide Serum for Hair Density qualify? Link below. I used this as an adjunct product for a couple years. Seemed to help with scalp inflammation/dandruff but nothing for hair loss/growth. Possibly the concentrations are lower but I still don’t think it matters much for hair loss. I stopped using as I found a couple shampoos that help with scalp health and are more user friendly.
You are correct Yoda! No-one pointed that one out before either, but I will add in the post.
Edit: Seems like the four peptides are not mentioned in the ingredients section on the company website, but listed as “technologies” present in the formula. See the update to the post for links.
Interesting Admin, I could’ve sworn I checked the ingredients on the bottle and they were listed. It’s probably been close to two years since I used so can’t say 100%. One thing I can say is that the ingredient percentages weren’t listed or disclosed. It wasn’t that costly of a product, like $18 with free shipping. My guess is that the aforementioned ingredients are in the product, albeit in very low percentages. My sense is also that even in higher percentages these ingredients aren’t a game changer.
The ingredients on both Amazon (if you click through photos to ingredients and scroll through page to ingredients) and on the company site omit the Big 4. Strange, but the technology is being used somehow. I agree, not likely a game changer in any way.
Thanks to you I learn english everyday admin, so thank you so much.
I didn’t know shoudn’t you put an “s” in “dozen” after “several”?
No need:-) “Dozens of” would need an ‘s’. But not “several dozen”.
Do you guys think Minimalist can be used together with Minoxidil? If yes, how would you suggest to use it? e.g. before/after x minutes/hours from last Minox application
Hi, I’m sharing an update of my Redensyl use. I’m a female and I posted here in the end of may 2021. I used Redensyl alone for about 3 months in 2021. I applied it every night. It definitely stopped my hair fall. Did not see any regrowth. After that I bought the Ordinary serum and a microneedling pen. I started microneedling once a month for 6-7 months. I used the Ordinary serum right after the microneedling sessions. The serum makes my hair greasy so I used it daily only the first month. After that I used it only for the microneedling and the nights before I wash my hair – that’s twice a week. Additionally I applied Redensyl every day. I have some new hairs but they appear only in the area that is not severely thining – that is on the top middle area of my head. The front region and the temples don’t have any regrowth. My hair there is see through and the hairs are getting shorter. The only effect of the treatment (and a great one) was that the hair fall stopped. I used to loose a lot of hair on a daily basis (2-300+), but during the treatment it was like 10 hairs a day, increasing slightly around my period. Well, after I stopped using these I lost all the hair that was saved, it shed like hell. So in my opinion these products work for slowing down the hair loss but not for sufficient regrowth.
There is something else about my and other women’s hair that I don’t know if applies for men’s hair too – the quality of the hairs. Mine are very brittle, thin, with constantly split ends ( one week after trimming they start splitting all over again), a lot of frizz. Obviously the hair follicle as an organ doesn’t work well and isn’t able to produce healthy hair. The only thing worse than balding is the hair that is left to look like an old witch’s broom. I think I’ve found a solution for this for now. I started using Olaplex and it’s working for my hair. My split ends are almost gone, my hair feels heavy, and thick and after I brush it it stays ‘brushed’ longer – before that 10 minutes later it would be in ugly strands.
So my plan is to start the microneedling again + the serums + olaplex and hopefully have some hair left when scientists finally develop some stable treatment for follicle neogenesis.
Thank you so much for the amazing and detailed Redensyl update. Hope you get great results with Olaplex.
Thanks for sharing. Which Olaplex products are you using?
Hi, sorry for the incredibly late response. I don’t get notifications from this site. I use Olaplex 0, 3, 6 and 8. I use them each time I wash my hair.
And talking about follicle neogenesis, does anyone know what these mean:
Human Stem Cell Conditioned Media, Human Fibroblast Conditioned Media
They are part of the ingredients list of this product:
Human Stem Cell Conditioned Media, Human Fibroblast Conditioned Media, Water, Glycerin, Larix Europaea Wood Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Santalum Acuminatum Fruit Extract, Citrus Glauca Fruit Extract, Acacia Victoriae Fruit Extract, Trifolium Pratense (Clover) Flower Extract, Zinc Chloride, Glycine, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Dehydroacetic Acid, Benzyl Alcohol, Lactic Acid
The site claims that in their technology:. “one type of stem cell is like a builder, secreting the “building blocks” to make the skin, and the other type of stem cell is like an architect, secreting the instruction set of molecules to “tell” the builders how to lay the blocks. In this manner, the S²RM® technology for wound healing is specific to this need, and without compromise – where mother nature leaves a scar, S²RM® doesn’t. This is “enhanced biomimetic” S²RM® technology.”
“Given that the power of stem cell therapeutics is largely because of molecules stem cells release (Maguire, 2013), we optimize the cells and their release of molecules in the laboratory, and then apply those optimized molecules directly into the patient (Maguire, 2016). In this manner, we know that the complete set of molecules is administered to the patient in space and in time. Further, the molecules are packaged into exosomes (Maguire, 2016B), so that protection, perfusion, and delivery of the molecules is accomplished in a synergistic fashion – i.e. all the molecule types are delivered at the same time and in the same space, yielding synergistic, systems-level effects (Maguire, 2014).”
It looks like a bold and expensive scam for desperate and naive people like me.
In theory would capixyl give the same sexual side effects as propecia/fin??
Did you get an answer to this question anywhere? Thanks!
