A natural DHT inhibiting formula, Crinagen has been shown to stop hair loss and promote regrowth. Crinagen uses natural substances as its active components. It is intended to offer users a natural alternative to the synthetic chemical treatments (such as minoxidil). Crinagen is in the class of clinically efficacious yet unproven treatments. Along with Revivogen and Folligen, Crinagen should be considered only after making use of the proven treatments.

What is Crinagen?

Crinagen is a completely natural topical scalp preparation. Its natural ingredients perform two basic functions: they decrease the production of a potent male hormone associated with male-pattern hair loss (DHT), and affect the blood vessels that nourish follicles in the scalp. One of the unique aspects of this treatment is that it does not have just one active ingredient; it has many. These ingredients act together to help block factors that are detrimental to growth.

Who is this Treatment for?

Crinagen is for both men and women, and can either be used alone, or with other follicle stimulators such as Minoxidil, and DHT inhibitors like Propecia. Crinagen is compatible with these products and helps reduce the scalp irritation is sometimes caused by them.

What is it used for?

Crinagen is a topical DHT inhibitor, so in men, it is primarily used for the same purpose that Propecia is used: Long term maintenance and cessation of fallout. If you use Crinagen, please set your expectations accordingly. This treatment also has some growth stimulating properties, however it is suggested you use Minoxidil or Tricomin in combination with it, if this is your goal.

Crinagen's Method of Action

DHT continues to damage and miniaturize follicles. As follicles are continually damaged by the ongoing effects of dihydrotestosterone, the body responds to this injury with an inflammatory response which is primarily mediated by the immune system. The cells of the immune system cause inflammatory reactions which further damage these follicles and eventually destroy them.

The best way to stop the progression of androgenic Alopecia is to correct the underlying genetic defect that causes it. Unfortunately, gene therapy is not yet possible. The next best solution is to block the formation of dihydrotestosterone. Most researchers believe that this hormone is responsible for the progressive miniaturization of follicles, which is the hallmark of androgenic Alopecia. One of the actions of Crinagen is to block the activity of 5 alpha-reductase and, thereby, its ability to convert testosterone into dihydrotestosterone. In this manner, it reduces the amount of DHT within the scalp. Reducing the amount of DHT reduces its miniaturizing effects on the follicle.

It also reduces the amount of injury it causes to the follicle and also the extent of the immune response targeted to the follicle. The creators of this product recommend the use of immunosuppressant agents in conjunction because, although it may reduce the quantity of DHT, it does not completely reverse the damage to follicles that has already occurred. These damaged follicles incite an immune system inflammatory response which can damage them even further. The use of immunosuppressants can reduce this inflammatory reaction and, thus, subsequent damage to follicles.

What's in it?

The ingredients are: Distilled water; Polysorbate 20; Azelaic Acid; Zinc acetate hydrate; Niacin; Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal-5-phosphate); Saw palmetto extract (serenoa repens); Ginkgo biloba and a mild natural fragrance.

The two most powerful ingredients of are Zinc and Saw Palmetto. Both agents have been shown to block the conversion of male sex hormones (such as testosterone) into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Dihydrotestosterone is a potent hormone. Most researchers believe it is responsible for male-pattern baldness. The ingredients accomplish this by blocking the enzyme 5 alpha-reductase, which is required to produce dihydrotestosterone. Since the ingredients are all natural ones, there are no hormonal side effects. The hallmark of male-pattern baldness is the progressive miniaturization of follicles. This is caused by a genetic predisposition of individual follicles that renders them more sensitive to normal circulating levels of male sex hormones. This is because increased levels of 5 alpha-reductase in these follicles causes the conversion of male hormones (such as testosterone) into dihydrotestosterone.

Crinagen Side effects

There are no known side effects.

 Hints and Tips

Crinagen differs from other topical scalp preparations in that it is sold by itself, without an accompanying shampoo. This means it is much much cheaper than most similar treatment packages out there. Effective shampoos already exist and are easy to obtain. I would recommend ones that are anti-inflammatory, such as Nizoral which is available in 1% form in every Grocery Store shampoo section. There is also a 2% form available by prescription which has shown results on balding similar to 2% minoxidil, but in any case, we have heard nothing but good reports about Nizoral shampoo. It is a very effective immunosuppressant.

To prevent the inflammatory reaction to the scalp from occurring , the source of damage to the follicles must be eliminated. Again, DHT is the source of this injury, causing the progressive miniaturization of follicles. It contains both Zinc and Saw Palmetto, which reduce the production of DHT. In addition, it contains vitamin B6, which has been shown to work in concert with zinc to inhibit 5 alpha-reductase.


Maintaining your hair his not any less important than regrowing it. Even if your main goal is to regrow some hair, its vitally important that you are using a DHT inhibiting product in your regimen as well. DHT inhibitors work to stop the cause of hair loss, and this is a huge portion of seeing success with growth stimulating treatments. Statistics have shown that nearly 43% of our visitors are men between the ages of 20 and 30 who have just begun to lose hair hair. Not coincidentally, it is these same men who have the most active sexual lives, and consider their libido very significant to daily life. For this reason, Propecia may not be an option, as systemic DHT inhibitors can sometimes cause unwanted side effects. This is where Revivogen comes in...

What is Revivogen?

Potentially one of the most effective unproven products our users have given us feedback on. While this is the case, the proven treatments on the market including Propecia, Minoxidil, and Tricomin should be considered first.

A topically applied DHT inhibitor that contains more scientifically backed ingredients for inhibiting DHT than you can shake a stick at. A typical ValuePak comes with three small scalp therapy bottles and a single Shampoo bottle. The Scalp therapy contains the active ingredients, while the shampoo, according to our users, just does a darn good job of making your hair look thick.

The makers set out to create a solution that contains as many known DHT inhibiting chemicals as possible into one solution. Since no significant amount is absorbed into the bloodstream, there are no side effects, as may be seen with Propecia use.

Who is this Treatment for?

It is safe for use in both Men and Women, who are experiencing hair loss due to hormonal related issues. It is effective for halting the process of male pattern baldness, and for women who have been diagnosed with some form of androgenetic Alopecia. It is first and foremost a DHT inhibiting product, which means DHT must be the cause of your hair loss in order for this product to be most effective. Most men fit into this category, and some women do as well.

However, due to the fact that it does contain growth stimulating ingredients, it may be effective for all forms of hair loss in some fashion. You may wish to use a stronger growth stimulant along with it, such as Minoxidil or Tricomin.

What is it used for?

This product is a topical DHT inhibitor, so in men, it is primarily used for the same purpose that Propecia is used: Long term maintenance and cessation of fallout. If you use this product, please set your expectations accordingly. This treatment also has some growth stimulating properties, however it is suggested you use Minoxidil or Tricomin in combination with it, if this is your goal.

Method of Action

The ingredients used in the Scalp Therapy formula have been proven to inhibit the 5AR enzyme that is responsible for the formation of DHT. Additionally, while Propecia is only able to inhibit type II serum 5AR levels by 70%, the ingredients in Scalp Therapy Formula are able to inhibit both types can equally inhibit both type I and II 5AR up to 98%. Additionally it has another active ingredient which has been proven to prevent DHT's attachment to its receptors on the follicle, providing additional protection. This method of action is what is responsible for its ability to assist in maintaining your hair over long periods of time.

When a man begins to lose his hair, certain genetically programmed follicles begin to develop DHT receptor sites. The DHT attaches itself to these receptor sites and begins to treat the follicle as a foreign object in the body. This chemical change not only affects hair. It can also cause itching, inflammation, and oiliness. During this time, the follicle, under the attack of DHT, begins to miniaturize with every growth cycle, until after several years, it simply is too small and short to be seen.

When the scalp therapy is used, both the formation of DHT and the ability for DHT to attach to receptor sites in the follicle are inhibited. Within a few months, the overall DHT levels will have remained low enough on a constant basis that the adverse effects it was having on the follicles will stop, resulting in a cessation of hair loss.

What's in it?

The active ingredients of Revivogen™ are natural compounds proven to be potent inhibitors of 5-Alpha-Reductase, the enzyme that produces DHT. These active ingredients include Procyanidin Oligomers, Gamma Linolenic acid (GLA), Alpha Linolenic acid (ALA), Linoleic Acid, Azelaic acid, Vitamin B6, Zinc, and Saw Palmetto Extract. New research has shown that GLA, ALA, Linoleic Acid and Azelaic Acid are the most powerful inhibitors of 5-alpha-reductase, the enzyme that produces DHT. This is the only product that contains GLA, ALA, and Azelaic Acid in one easy to use topical formula. In addition, the combination of these powerful ingredients with Linoleic Acid, Vitamin B6, Zinc Sulfate and Saw Palmetto Extract has resulted in the most potent natural anti-DHT formula available today.

Side effects

There are no known side effects.

How to use it

The Scalp Therapies are a topical formula and must be applied at least once a day to the affected area of the scalp and the surrounding areas. You must avoid washing your hair for at least three hours so the active ingredients can effectively get absorbed into your scalp. It can be applied at any time during the day but most people prefer to use it at night before going to bed.

Hints and Tips

It is important that you set your expectations accordingly with this product. Our consumer trials showed that most people who used it for 6 months or longer saw the greatest results. This is not surprising since this is primarily a DHT inhibitor like Propecia, and though Propecia is the most successful, proven treatment on the market - it still takes upwards of a year to begin working. Hair loss does not happen quickly, and reversing it takes time as well.



Aside from inhibiting DHT with treatments like Propecia and Revivogen, or stimulating growth with Minoxidil and Tricomin, the condition of your scalp is of utmost importance in seeing maximum results in your treatment regimen. The Folligen suite of products are very highly acclaimed among our users for being great scalp conditioning and regimen-supplementing hair treatment products. It also makes use of Copper Peptide technology to stimulate hair growth, like Tricomin.

What is Folligen?

The original creator of Tricomin therapy spray, Dr. Loren Pickart, eventually branched off on his own to create a suite of skin and hair loss products. Folligen comes in three forms: A Spray, a Lotion, and a Cream. All three products work remarkably well in soothing an irritated scalp from Minoxidil use, and make use of copper peptides to stimulate hair growth.

This treatment had its beginning as a skin repair cream that was being tested in the Dermatology Department at the University of California at San Francisco. A 41-year-old woman with severe Alopecia tried the cream because nothing else had worked. In two and a half months she experienced a significant amount of hair growth. Other people began using the skin repair cream to counter balding and in time, Folligen emerged as a distinct product.

Hair Loss and Poor Scalp Quality

"Quantitative and ultrastructural analysis of inflammatory infiltrates in male pattern Alopecia"

Acta Derm Venereol 1999 Sep;79(5):347-50.

In order to determine whether lymphocytic inflammation around the lower infundibula in male pattern baldness is incidental or a general phenomenon, we performed morphometric and ultrastructural analysis of inflammatory infiltrates in the transitional zones of the vertex and occipital hairy scalps of 19 patients with male pattern baldness. Six normal subjects served as controls. The number of inflammatory infiltrates around the follicular infundibula of the alopecic vertices and non-alopecic occiputs of male pattern Alopecia patients was significantly greater than the corresponding control value. The number of mast cells in the widened fibrous tracts in the vertices of male pattern baldness patients was significantly greater than those in the adventitial fibrotic sheaths of control subjects and the non-alopecic occiputs of male pattern Alopecia patients.

These data support the idea that the inflammatory process may be, at least in part, responsible for the development of male pattern Alopecia


Who is this Treatment for?

Folligen is for both men and women, and can either be used alone, or with other follicle stimulators such as Minoxidil, and DHT inhibitors like Propecia. Folligen is compatible with these products and helps reduce the scalp irritation is sometimes caused by them.

Please see the "Related Articles" section on the right side of this page for more information on Folligen's use in Men.

What is it used for?

Folligen is primarily used to stimulate hair growth with Copper Peptide Technology, and act as a scalp conditioning treatment for irritated scalps. Whether you use the Lotion, Spray, or Cream depends on the type of hair loss you have and the status of the application site. The following table outlines the proper uses:

Folligen's Method of Action

Copper Peptides work to awaken the follicles from resting phase and cause a larger number to enter into growth phase than would normally be doing so on one's scalp.

What's in it?

Purified Water, Aloe Vera Gel, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Glycerin, Polysorbate-20, Allantoin, Cupric Sulfate, Diazolinydinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Herbal Fragrance.

Folligen Side effects

There are no known side effects.

How to apply Folligen

A tube of Folligen, used about 4 times per week, should last 30 to 45 days depending on the size of application area. In clinical studies, a very light coating (approximately 10 milligrams per square centimeter) was applied to the skin which is then further rubbed into the scalp.

Step 1: Use Folligen Lotion, Cream or Spray to get your scalp in good shape. Apply a thin coating of Folligen cream or lotion or Folligen Spray to the scalp. The Cream is better for the hairline and the Lotion and Spray are easier to apply into heavier hair. Folligen is usually applied before bedtime. If desired, you may shampoo the Folligen out in the morning. Then start using 2% Minoxidil along with Folligen If this is not irritating, move up to Folligen and 5% Minoxidil. Apply the Minoxidil and let it dry for about a minute, then apply the Folligen

Step 2: If your scalp becomes irritated due to using Minoxidil, or other topical treatments, stop the treatments temporarily but continue Folligen When your scalp is okay again, resume the progressive use of the topical and start again with low quantities or percentages (i.e. - Minoxidil 2%) and move up to 5%. After a number of cycles of steps 1 and 2, your skin should adjust and you should be able to use both together.

Hints and Tips

The addition of a DHT blocker to Folligen use may help further.  Propecia and   Revivogen are good systemic and topical DHT Inhibitors.


6. Tricomin

Copper Peptides to stimulate hair growth. Might sound a bit odd, but this technology is one of the most unique and successful alternative methods of treating hair loss. Unlike Propecia, it doesn't inhibit DHT to stop the cause of hair loss, and unlike Minoxidil, it doesn't use Potassium Channel openers to stimulate hair growth. Tricomin is in its own class...

What is Tricomin?

Tricomin is a therapy spray that is applied topically. It is part of a suite of products that include a shampoo, conditioner, and conditioning shampoo Tricomin made it into our list of clinically efficacious products because it is one of the few products to have actually stimulated growth in intensive partial FDA trials. In Phase II clinical studies, it had very positive results on some of the 36 men who applied the treatment topically twice a day for 24 weeks. It uses a technology known as the "Copper Peptide Technology" to do this.

Who is this Treatment for?

Tricomin is for use in both Men and Women experiencing any form of hair loss.

What is it used for?

Tricomin is best used as a supplemental addition to a regimen attempting to stimulate hair growth. It is also a very good scalp conditioner for those who do not tolerate Minoxidil very well. The two used together make an excellent growth stimulant regimen, and in conjunction with Propecia even better.

Tricomin's Method of Action

At any given time, a large portion of the follicles on your scalp are in a Resting or Growth phase. With most forms of hair loss, including several of the less common Alopecia's, a larger number of follicles enter into resting phase than normal. This results in less regrowth, and the development of bald spots or thinning. Propecia works to stop the *cause* of this chemical reaction by stopping it at the root (so to speak) of the problem by inhibiting the formation of DHT in the blood stream. In men's hair loss this is almost always the cause. Not necessarily so with women. Minoxidil works to stimulate growth without stopping the cause of the loss, by "shocking" the follicle into activity. Tricomin on the other hand, shortens the resting phase of the follicle, causing a greater number of follicles to be active at any given time, thus producing hair.

As we know, DHT is largely responsible for the eventual degradation of the size, width, and length of the follicle for both males and females. During this process, several very important nutrients are compromised, and their production can sometimes slow or completely stop. This is where Tricomin comes in. The presence of Copper has been shown to inhibit 5-Alpha Reductase, which is responsible for the formation of DHT. As we grow older, these peptides in the body decrease, opening the way for 5-Alpha to do its work in helping to form DHT in the follicle. Copper is also responsible for stimulating the development of the basic ingredients which make up a healthy hair follicle. Hair grows in phases. There are periods of time where a follicle will be growing, and other periods where it lays dormant, known as the Resting Phase. During the growth phase, substances at the base of the follicle such as collagen and various Proteins are actively in production, while during the resting phase, they are virtually inactive. Tricomin has been shown to stimulate them into production by delivering Copper peptides to the base of the follicle. This is where these four hair loss treatments come into play. Take a look at each, and see if they meet your needs.
