One-hundred and forty-eight participants with varying degrees of male pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia) participated in an open-ended study using an all natural compound solution to determine the effects of hair regrowth. The participants were photographed and initial hair counts were done in a 2.5 cm diameter area of their balding scalp. After five months of treatment, the participants were re-photographed and hair counts were done on the same 2.5 cm diameter area of the scalp. The results indicate that 85.7% of the men in the study had an increase in their terminal hairs of 30% or greater.

Summary of objectives
The main objective of this study is to determine the efficacy of a shampoo/conditioner system to increase the rate of growth by non-invasive method, in this case by hair coloring and measurements of the roots every 42 days (6 weeks). The study involved 20 healthy female volunteers and was conducted over 3 periods of 42 days for a total of 18 weeks. One voluteer did not complete the study. The first period was the reference during which the volunteers followed their regular hair cleansing routine. During the other two periods, the volunteers had to apply the test treatment once per day. Rates of hair growth determined at different time points were compared to each other. The volunteers also evaluated the effects of the treatment on the rate of hair growth by completing a self assessment questionnaire. The secondary objective of the study was to evaluate the customer acceptance and tolerance of the test products according to normal conditions of use.
Hair Growth Rate: Average Results
On average the 19 volunteers had a growth rate of 1.7 cm in the initial 42 day period. After the first test period the average growth rate increased to 2.0 cm. This is an average increase of 17% considered to be statistically significant. After the second test period the average growth rate increased to 2.2 cm or a 30% increase. The highest growth rate observed over the test period was 99% the lowest was 5%.
In all cases the rate of hair growth increased between sessions 1 and 2 this indicates clearly that the longer the product is used the better the results.
