After a hair transplant, the transplanted hair follicles enter the dormancy (telogen) phase for 3 ‐ 6 months before they start to grow (anagen phase). Full growth is usually achieved in 10 ‐ 12 months.
Until now, nothing has been known to reduce the length of this dormancy phase, nor to eliminate this phase.
Can a special whey protein concentrate formulation reduce the length of the telogen phase after a hair transplant?
There is so far nothing on the market shown to be able to consistently reduce the resting phase or the time it takes for the hair to start growing after a hair transplant, until Help Hair™ Whey Protein Concentrate.
In a study of 100 people who had hair loss, 94% of the participants said that their hair looked better after taking Help Hair™ Shake. After 4 or more weeks of taking Help Hair™ Shake twice a day, the participants said they had healthier, shinier hair, less hair loss, less hair breakage, stronger and longer looking hair, faster growth, bouncier, and the hairs appearance was fuller and thicker. Significant hair improvement was noted by 62% of the subjects.
Help Hair™ Shake also proved capable of reducing the dormancy period after a hair transplant or hair restoration surgery. In another study of 115 women and men who took Help Hair™ Shake directly after a hair transplant, all of them had hair growing from the follicles that were transplanted only 6 weeks after the hair transplant. At three months, everyone in the study group had at least 3/4″ length of hair growing from the transplanted follicles.
The Enhanced Whey Protein Concentrate in Help Hair™ Shake is the first product known to reduce the length of the telogen phase (dormancy) after a hair transplant in some individuals, therefore, resulting in Accelerated Follicular Restoration™.
Our consulting physician Dr Jennifer Martinick highly recommends Help Hair™ Shake for faster regrowth after a hair transplant. All hair transplant patients at our clinic are encouraged to use Help Hair™ Shake after their procedure and are provided with a month’s supply in their post-op take home pack.
Abstract from the Journal of Clinical & Experimental Dermatology Research
People seeking hair transplants are looking forward to the benefits of a fuller head of hair. Waiting up to one year for complete results reduces the time that patients can enjoy the benefits of their transplant. Perhaps a nutritional supplement could reduce the dormancy phase after a hair transplant. This study examined a whey protein concentrate supplement that was fortified with additional ingredients ingested after a hair transplant, to see if the transplanted hair grew in faster.
This study aims to demonstrate that taking EWPC reduced the telogen phase after a hair transplant, therefore achieving results more quickly using an all-natural approach.
Materials and Methods
The subjects were 115 men and women who took the enhanced whey protein concentrate (referred to as EWPC) as directed on a daily or twice-daily basis within 5 days after a hair transplant. We examined their hair growth in the transplanted area 6 weeks (1.5 months) after their hair transplant. We also examined them at 12 weeks (3 months).
We also conducted a follow-up study consisting of a subset of 52 patients using EWPC with measurements taken at 5, 6 and 7 months after transplant. The study included 115 controls, who had a hair transplant without taking the EWPC.
This study of 115 men and women who took the enhanced whey protein concentrate (referred to as EWPC) as directed on a daily or twice-daily basis within 5 days after a hair transplant revealed that all of them–100%–had hair starting to grow from the transplanted follicles of 1 to 2 hairs just 6 weeks (1.5 months) after their hair transplant.
At 12 weeks (3 months), all these subjects (100%) had at least a 3/4″ length of 1 to 2 hairs in the transplanted area. In a follow-up study consisting of a subset of 52 patients using EWPC with measurements taken at 5, 6 and 7 months after transplant, 10% had complete growth by 5 months.
An additional 79% (89% total) had complete growth by 6 months, and 11% (100% total) had complete growth by 7 months. The 115 controls, who had a hair transplant without taking the EWPC, had the typical results with their hair transplant: little or no significant growth at 6 weeks and little or no significant growth at 12 weeks, with growth starting after that time.
Both groups were prescribed finasteride 1 mg daily p.o. 5 days after surgery and topical rogaine 2% one month after surgery. In the follow-up study using 48 controls, 67% had 50% growth at 6 months, and 33% had 40% or less growth at 6 months; at 9 months, all the controls had complete growth.
EWPC is the first product known to reduce the length of the telogen phase after a hair transplant. The patients’ overall satisfaction with the procedure increases because of faster results.
