If you are using Minoxidil for hair growth, alternate every other day applications of Hair Signals.
Apply directly to the scalp once a day or once every other day. This product can be "diluted" by basing the scalp first with a light amount of Emu Oil before lightly applying. Use sparingly. For improved results: massage into the scalp.
NOTE: If you are just starting off, you may want to begin with
Folligen Cream and work up to Hair Signals.
If you are blonde, try
Folligen for Blondes.
After applying any copper peptide to the scalp, gently massage the scalp for 5 minutes.
Air dry your hair whenever possible. Limit use of heat (blow dryers, curling irons, hot combs, flat irons) to special occasions only or not at all. Be careful of shampoos and conditioners which may contain harsh detergents and flash-foaming agents that strip protective coating proteins of the hair shaft. For shampoos/conditioners fortified with copper peptides use Folligen Shampoo and Folligen Conditioner.
Supplements of MSM (2-4 grams daily) and flaxseed oil (4 grams daily) may also help with hair health.
Blonde Hair - NOTE: If you have light colored hair (or have chemically treated blonde highlights), be advised that your hair may temporarily pick up a green tint from Folligen. Try to keep the products on the scalp. If a greenish tint occurs, just rinse with lemon juice and water to easily remove it. Or use Folligen for Blondes which is designed specifically for blonde hair.
Before Color Treating or Applying Hair Dye - NOTE: It is important to discontinue use of Hair Signals on the hair for about 1-2 weeks before attempting to chemically color treat the hair. Copper-peptides can possibly react with the hair dye, and although these occurrences are rare, the color may not come out as desired.
