ReBoost Update: New Photos

I received some new photos of ReBoost user results today from Gizem and Nurcan and am happy to share them with you. I also wanted to create a new shorter post that has all of the latest information on ReBoost because the previous one was so long. Out of the two sets of before and afters, one of the ‘after’ images appears to be previously featured in this article that published around the time ReBoost launched in Turkey. So it’s actually like 1.5 sets of new photos. 😉 None the less, here they are.

User Photos

I’m going to be adding photos to this post as they come.


6-16-17: These photos came in today of a guy who has been using the cream for 1.5 months. Not a very conclusive set of photos for sure, having been only 1.5 months. There does seem to be a little more going in after photo.


This message came a long with the photos:

“We will add more pictures and user comments; when we receive more examples from the latest user pictures we’d like to share with the readers of Follicle Thought.
Kind regards,

Nurcan & Gizem”

They also invited me to provide my thoughts on these first two sets of photos. First off, the result from the person with alopecia areata totalis is pretty remarkable. Areata is a disease that has the ability to go into remission itself, but that does not seem to be going on here. If there will be another example of someone with alopecia areata that gets similar results to these I think that will be a landmark statement. Second photo (Picture2) with the AGA also looks like a solid result to me. Pretty easy to tell there is clearly thicker caliber hair and a higher number of hairs growing, and at that, from a guy who is basically a NW6. I believe a follicle count comparison of the two photos would be corroborating. I should also mention, I am told these photos were taken by the users themselves and sent to the University.

And for those who have asked in comments, yes I have begun my own trial of ReBoost. I’m over a week in and will be giving feedback around 2-3 months of use. All of you who are also using it, feel free to comment on this article with your own hair observations.

N2C Hair Cream: Product Review

As promised, here is my review of the N2C Hair Cream which I have been trialing for the past 12 months.

The Beginning

I first received the N2C hair cream early last year from a friend of mine who lives in Turkey. He was also trialing the cream. I figured I would give it a shot and see if it could improve my hair situation. After about 3 weeks of use I did notice a benefit to my hair, namely my hair was stronger (did not shed as easily as before usage) and in the area I was observing, the hair appeared a bit healthier. This kept my interest in using the product. Over the course of the next few months I would receive one more bottle from my friend in Turkey before I contacted N2C and received 2 more bottles to continue my trial. In 12 months I have used 4 bottles of the cream.

My N2C Usage

Over the past 12 months I was mainly focused on using this cream at my vertex, or crown, area. This was for several reasons. Among them, the cream itself has a very similar consistency to hand lotion and thus, hair remains a bit oily after the cream is applied. I like my hair to be styled dry to get the most volume out of it, therefore, I did not apply the cream to my entire scalp for every use. I mainly used the cream at my vertex and covered the area with some concealer after applying the cream. On days when I was just hanging around the house I would add a few extra pumps of the cream to my entire scalp. Another reason I focused on my vertex is because visually it was an isolated area for me to observe.

Here’s a rundown of what I have observed over my past year’s use:

  • 1 – 3 months. At some point within the first 3 months of use I noticed my hair was stronger than it had been before use of this cream. I remember rubbing the cream in for about a minute (which is actually a long time to rub a cream in your hair) and I would stop and look at my fingers and be amazed, there was no hair on my oily fingers. This happened more than once. I would also occasionally notice a pimple on my scalp from use of the cream, N2C says this is a common side effect; wasn’t a big deal to me.
  • 3 – 6 months. Somewhere around the 3 month mark I spoke to N2C company to check in about my progress using the cream. I noted that I was using the cream a few times a week and had observed some benefit to my hair, but nothing dramatic. He advised that I begin using the cream everyday, or as often as possible to see what results could be achieved, so I did.
  • 6 – 10 months. During this period I began to apply the cream to one side of my scalp consistently, along with my vertex. The side area I am referring to is above the sideburn and behind the side-hairline. On one side of my head, before I began using the cream, this area had thinned a little bit. During this 6-10 month period while I was applying the cream to my side scalp mostly-consistently, my side scalp area hair thickened to the point where it became similar to the other side again. I feel better about it. My vertex hair continued to improve, but at a slow pace.
  • 10 months – Current. At some point over the past 2 months it has finally become clear, there is denser terminal hair growth in my vertex than there was before I began using the cream. I am certain I have achieved an increase in hair density at my crown/vertex area, even if subtly. Before my trial, within my crown area there was a vertical central “strip” area that had the most hair growing compared to the rest of the crown. Since using the cream, this central strip of hair has become noticeably wider, more dense, with more hair growth. I have also noticed there has been growth around edges of my vertex which have started to grow back towards the center, a bit. There are still lighter/thinner areas between the central strip and the edges of my crown. These areas are where there was initially not much hair growth to be thickened.

More Notes

When I started the trial I did take some pictures of my scalp on the front facing camera of my cell phone. Time would tell me, however, that the pictures I took as “before” images were not precisely done. As time went on, I began taking pictures with another device and realized that the photo results I have are not comparing apples to apples. I’ve looked at my scalp constantly over the past year and am confident that I have seen changes. There are photos of other people’s results on the N2C website.

There is one caveat about using the cream – it needs to be applied to a clean scalp in order for the ingredients to penetrate the surface of the skin. This is foretold by N2C because mild shampoos need to be utilized to leave the scalp clean without leaving a layer of chemical residue on the scalp. N2C recommends washing with a baby shampoo or herbal soap or their own shampoo when using the cream. I decided to go for an organic baby shampoo just to be sure my scalp would have no residue after washing. I did also receive one bottle of the N2C shampoo to use during my trial, but didn’t notice a difference between it and my organic baby shampoo, so I just stuck with the baby shampoo which was easier for me to acquire.

What I believe has happened to my crown hair is the thickening of the diameter of individual hair shafts which had become weaker and the stimulation of the anagen phase in weakened follicles. Another observation worth mentioning is the hair growing in my vertex’s central area has also become longer since I began use. Longer hair is a sign of anagen increase and adds to the visual improvement of hair density. N2C notes that this cream is intended to be used on areas where some hair is growing. It is not intended to lower hairlines or grow hair in completely bald areas.

Summary

It took me about 10 months of mostly consistent use to be sure of a visual increase in hair density at my crown. Was it all worth it to me now? Yes, it was. I would not say my results are dramatic, however, the fact that over the past year I have stopped the progression of thinning and even added density to my crown is golden. As a person who does not use minoxidil or finasteride, by personal choice, I was delighted to have found a natural product to help maintain my hair and even increase its density.

About the N2C Hair Cream

The cream is a natural product containing plant extracts and keratin which has been specially treated at a nanotechnology laboratory. Although the cream is treated with a proprietary process at the nano lab, the product does not contain nanoparticles. According to N2C, it is the cream’s ability to penetrate the skin which separates it from the results of other cosmetics.

The N2C company has extended an offer to readers of Follicle Thought to receive a 5% discount off your order when using this coupon code. US customers will need to use two coupon codes to get the discount.

  • First, use the code FTCURUSD to get a discount on the currency rate.

I am available to answer questions in the comments about my experience with the cream. Thanks for reading. 

HairClone Cont., KROX20 Discovery: Weekly Thoughts 5/23/17

Welcome to a new edition of Weekly Thoughts.

The other gene therapy discussed is a bit more of a surprise. Let’s see what’s going on.

The video features Dr. Ken Williams, a clinical partner of HairClone, discussing the option of administering HairClone’s new technique on one of his patients. Video seen below: Read More

2017: A Look Ahead

I’ve got a good feeling about 2017…

For the past several years we have been pacified by the news of a research study or startup company working on a treatment that grows hair. Ultimately, we would prefer the treatment in our hands, but reading about it on a computer screen has been supportive as well. It’s something we can think of throughout the day or in a quiet moment which helps to release a little more serotonin in the brain. However, the time has to come for a treatment to be made available for us all and I believe that 2017 is going to be that year. This will mostly take place in the cosmetic market, but the treatments should be worthwhile. Read More

Kelopesia Update, Brotzu Trial, Cures: Weekly Thoughts 12/16/16

Hey everybody, welcome to another edition of Weekly Thoughts. This week I touch on two topicals that have been at the forefront of hair growth enthusiasts’ attention this past year. Also, I take a look at an intriguing healthcare legislation that was just passed this week in the United States.

Kelopesia Update

Remember when Kelopesia burst onto the scene earlier this year? Man, that was a hoot. It was slated as a new ‘stem cell-conditioned media’ cream which would be available by the end of April in Turkey. Well, turns out that was not the way it happened. We’re not quite sure what lead to the delay, but that’s not really important anymore. What’s important is that we are actually close to the re-scheduled release date of Kelopesia. This past week I decided it was a good time to get an update from Yeditepe University. Read More
