Capillus 272 Laser Reviewed

Posted by William Gaunitz on Tue, Sep 22, 2015 @ 01:09 PM

I first heard of the Capillus 272 Laser Cap about three years ago. This device was the new competitive device that was directly competing against the LCPRO LaserCap by Transdermal Cap.

The Capillus 272 had only one clear difference: it had 48 more pulsed laser diodes (272 diodes) than the LaserCap (224 diodes) and was supposedly more effective because of the extra diodes.

In my experience, this is simply untrue. As you will see below-- and as many people have discovered first hand-- 
more lasers are 

Capillus 272 Hair LaserNOT necessarily better when trying to regrow hair

Having been present in the LLLT industry since its foundation in the U.S. I have seen thousands of people grow hair with a wide range of laser devices of varying strengths including the LaserCap, iGrow Laser, and our Clinical ER610 Laser. Clinically, some of the most amazing results I have witnessed have been accomplished using a clinical device with only 30-60 static (non-pulsed) diodes. The key to getting great results for the average person with LLLT is not using more diodes, it is using the right laser, for the right situation, with the right treatment protocol.

Conversely, I have also seen many people lose hair as a direct result of using a low-level laser device (like the Capillus272) with too much energy. The excessive energy delivered to the scalp can lead to overstimulation that can result in rapid shedding, scalp tenderness, and trauma to the scalp. It can take 6-12 weeks in some cases to stabilize the scalp condition and stop shedding caused by overstimulation. This phenomenon seems to be a stress response called Anagen Effluvium caused by excessive energy stimulation to the scalp.   

In my experience, the Capillus 272 Laser Device has too many diodes to be effective for normal hair loss. In addition, it can result in dramatic and unnecessary shedding when used as described by the manufacturer (30 minutes every other day). There is no documented clinical evidence that the extra 48 lasers provide a superior result. It is my belief that this is simply a marketing tactic to mislead uneducated consumers into thinking the Capillus272 device has a greater value than other devices with the same price point.

For those who are interested in a high-diode device,my only recommendation is the LC PRO LaserCap. This device contains only 224 pulsed diodes and should reduce the risk of overstimulation and improve the end result (when used with proper protocol). My recommended usage instructions for the LCPRO LaserCap

LaserCap begin with using the device for only 5 minutes twice weekly to start, and increasing one minute per application per month for six months. See my LaserCap Review for full details)

People who CAN be a candidate for high powered devices like the LC PRO LaserCap or Capillus272 are:
•    Men and women suffering from long term hair loss in excess of 10-15 years
•    Men and women who have always had very fine hair
•    Men and women with lightly-colored hair, such as natural blond hair and light brown hair.

People who should NEVER use high-powered devices:
•    Men and women with dark pigmentation in their skin such as African Americans or people of Hispanic descent.  There is only one device recommended for these skin types, and that is the iGrow Laser which is 12x less powerful than the Capillus272.
•    Men and women with only short term hair loss that have thick, dark, coarse hair.  

More about the Capillus Company:

The Capillus device was created by Carlos Pina, former head of marketing for the LaserCap company during its formation. Pina then severed ties and started his own company, Capillus, in 2011.
Pina's marketing skill is apparent; the Capillus now has a huge industry presence and is carried by many physicians. He was also able to get FDA clearance before other competitive devices by completing clinical studies and other regulatory steps in the primary phase

The Capillus272 At-Home Low Level Laser Therapy Device specs are:

  • Manufactured in Miami, Florida.
  • Contains 272 Laser Diodes
  • 5mw per diode
  • 650 nanometer wavelength
  • Battery-Operated with Rechargeable Battery Pack
  • FDA 510K Market Clearance for Androgenetic Alopecia in Women and Skin Phototypes I to IV (this does NOT include African Americans or ethnicities with brown skin)

Bottom Line

Although I have respect for their CEO, the Capillus272 Laser Device is simply too powerful to benefit most people in the long term. If you are looking for a laser device to treat hair loss, you can follow this general rule:

  • For light hair and light skin, use the LCPRO LaserCap starting at 5 minutes per use, twice weekly.
  • For darker or course or brown skin tones, use the iGrow Laser for 20-25 minutes, twice weekly

William Gaunitz and Evolution Hair Centers of Tempe was recently been featured in the article below. Evolution Hair Centers has consistently been getting new attention for the effectiveness of the Evolution Hair Centers hair loss treatment for women.

A Silent Issue: Women and Hair Loss
By Katie Snyder

Fact: Hair loss is no longer just a men’s issue, it affects women too.

And if you’ve ever glanced down at your hairbrush and found a sizable clump of freshly-pulled hair, or looked at your hair and realized it appeared way thinner than it used to be, you know how frightening it can be.

“Today, more than 21 million women suffer from hair loss across the United States,” said William Gaunitz WTS, founder of Evolution Hair Centers. “While most common in older women, it can affect even women who are in their 20’s and 30’s.”

Every year, the taboo topic leaves women of all ages suffering in silence as they search for reasons why and solutions to fix their often embarrassing condition.
The good news? There are answers.

Is my hair loss normal?

Not all hair loss is bad hair loss. As women age, their hair will naturally fall out and replace itself with a fresh hair in the follicle. But there are other factors that may determine if the hair loss is more permanent—like genetics.

“If you have hair loss and the androgenetic alopecia gene, which is the hereditary female pattern hair loss gene, and it runs in either side of the family tree, you are more likely to have female pattern thinning and hair loss,” said Gaunitz.

This isn’t always the case. There may also be other factors including health conditions, family history and lifestyle factors that lead to the two other most common hair loss conditions among women: telogen effluvium, the shedding of hair brought on by stressful events or illness, and alopecia areata, a recurrent disease that results in a typical pattern of diffuse hair thinning over the middle scalp.

According to William Gaunitz, other factors might include:

Hormonal Imbalance

This can be caused by unbalanced levels of androgens, namely dihydrotestosterone(DHT) and estrogen. Other hormonal imbalances such as thyroid problems and genetic hormonal responses to autoimmune conditions can also cause thinning of the hair.


Remember that saying “you’re going to make my hair fall out?” Well it’s true. When women experience stress, the adrenal glands become overworked it increases the levels of cortisol in the body. In return, a woman can produce an excess of hormones that can sometimes cause the hair to fall out.


After a pregnancy a woman’s hormones can be in disarray. It is perfectly common for post-partum mothers to experience thinning of the hair and even bald patches. In most cases, once the hormone levels have balanced back out, the hair should grow back.

Birth Control

Perhaps the most common is birth control. When women start and stop birth control it changes the levels or hormones in their body which can temporarily cause hair loss.

Prevention and Treatment Options

“While you cannot fight your genes, you can fight the effects of aging and hormonal imbalance,” said Gaunitz. “While losing hair can be embarrassing, chances are it’s something that’s easily treatable.”

Being able to analyze full medical history, as well as details relating to lifestyle, family, diet and any medication you may be taking is essential to getting the right diagnosis and treatment.

Other helpful hair loss prevention tips:

•    Use organic and anti-inflammatory shampoos and other products that are cleansing to the scalp to help flush out hormonal build up inside the hair follicles.
•    Maintain a healthy diet full of fiber and vitamin rich foods.
•    Try out over the counter products such as Minoxidil (Rogaine).
•    Make sure to use the right nutritional supplements.

“Hormones can be easily manipulated in women with nutritional supplements,” said Gaunitz. “The combination of the right nutritional supplements, healthy diet and organic shampoo and conditioner will usually stop a female’s hair loss.”

For more extreme cases, low level laser therapy is also available for women who want to increase the quantity and quality of hair in the hair shaft that is already being produced.

IGrow Laser Reviewed

Posted by William Gaunitz on Fri, Oct 04, 2013 @ 09:58 PM

In my opinion, the IGrow Laser is one of the best all around at-home laser devices for hair igrow laserregrowth. Apira Science, LLC has done a very good job at marketing the device with the real potential of the device and the correct way to use it.

For the money, the IGrow Laser is best laser you can purchase unless you have very fine blond hair. The Igrow Laser is cost effective and is well made. Their customer support is also fantastic.

The Igrow laser has received their 510K FDA Market Clearance recently which makes them a better purchase against the Hairmax Lasercomb devices.

If you have blond hair though, it will not be strong enough. You will need to purchase the LaserCap that is about 10 times as powerful. People with very light hair need more laser energy to get a result. This is due to blond hair reflecting light versus black hair that will attract light. If you have black to light brown hair, the Igrow Laser device will work well.

I do however recommend that every laser unit be used with the right product to get the best result for your individual situation. At Evolution Hair Loss Institute I have put together multiple Igrow packages for different situations.

Women Hair Loss – Why Does it happen? and What can you do about it?

Posted by William Gaunitz on Fri, Feb 22, 2013 @ 07:33 PM
What used to be a “men’s condition” is now quickly becoming a female epidemic. It is scary to think that you could randomly wake up one day and begin to see more hair on the pillow case and less on your head.

For women losing their hair, it is a serious blow to femininity and the ideal vision of themselves. We are constantly cutting and coloring to make sure our hair looks the best it can. But what if one day the un-thinkable happens… and it falls out and doesn’t grow back?

Female Hair Loss on the Rise

In a recent study by the Dermatology Online Journal, it states that at least 10 percent of pre-menopausal women will experience hair loss and that a staggering 50 percent to 75 percent of women will lose hair after 64 years of age. In a recent report on NBC Online it states these numbers are low and that female hair loss is seriously on the rise.

But why are women losing hair now more than ever? And what can be done about it? After contacting numerous hair loss professionals in the valley, one seemed to have his finger on the pulse of the problem, and this is what he said:

Question: What causes women’s hair loss?

Answer: Female hair loss can be caused by multiple factors, but the most common cause is an underlying genetic pre-disposition to hair loss known as androgenetic alopecia or female pattern hair loss.  Unlike the popular myth that you inherit hair loss from your mother’s father, women can inherit hair loss from either side of the family. This means that women can inherit hair loss from men and vice versa. It is much more common than people know.

There are other factors that can cause hair loss or increase hair loss due to family history. They include stress, lifestyle, diet, thyroid dis-function, fungal infections, scalp parasites, and medications (most common hormone replacement and birth control pills).

Question: How you do know what is causing your hair loss?

Answer: A simple patient history is the easiest way. Many women have blood tests for hormonal issues, thyroid dysfunction, iron levels, and vitamin D deficiency.  Unfortunately this rarely produces any other cause other than normal pattern hair loss.

At our clinics we use a video microscope to analyze the condition of the scalp at 50x magnification. At this level we can tell if the client has loss due to stress, diet, infection of the hair follicle, or simple hormonally related hair loss.

Question: Is there hope for women with thinning hair? How do you control it?

Answer: There certainly is. There are so many tools that can be used to control female hair loss and reverse it in many cases. Once you have established the reason for the hair loss and it can be treated with a variety of methods. Unfortunately, most general physicians simply don’t have the time or the knowledge to get a full understanding of why a woman is losing her hair. The female patient is then left combing the internet for solutions that rarely leads to any real answer.

Questions: What do your clinics use to help women with thinning hair?

Answer: Depending on the reason for the loss, the treatment protocol will vary. Usually though for common female pattern hair loss the protocol is relatively similar. We a have a 9 month program that includes twice weekly office visits for cool light laser treatments for the scalp. This stimulates cell regeneration and is already approved to promote thicker hair.

Our program also includes topical pharmaceuticals, hormone therapy balancing cream, nutritional supplementation, holistic hair care products, and topical scalp serums. This is most aggressive treatment that we offer, but it works. When you use everything together the way that our program does, you are bound to get results.

Question: What advice would you give a woman who is dealing with this problem?

Find the source of the problem as quickly as possible and treat that problem. Don’t try to treat it yourself because you are wasting time that could be spent growing hair back. I obviously would recommend to call us and then come to the clinic for a consultation. Worst case scenario, you can stop the progression of the loss. Best case, we can dramatically reverse your hair loss and regrow hair.

We have had numerous cases where a woman was wearing a wig or extensions when they started the treatment. Then 9 months later they were able to remove their wig permanently or stop getting extensions because their hair had gained so much volume and density.

Question: Is there maintenance required?

Answer: 99% yes. I usually tell people it’s like brushing your teeth. If you don’t brush them and go to the dentist, your teeth will rot and fall out. The same goes for your hair.  If you have a genetic hair loss problem, you have two options; one- you can treat the problem long term, or two- let your hair fall out and go bald. Clearly our clients choose hair.

Phoenix Hair Restoration – things you should know.

Posted by William Gaunitz on Sat, Feb 16, 2013 @ 01:39 AM

Surgical Hair Restoration or hair transplantation is an irreversible surgical procedure. In Phoenix Arizona there are many physicians to choose from. Hair restoration surgery has risks and rewards that you should be aware of before you spend thousands of dollars and may not happy with the appearance post treatment. You must choose your physician or treatment wisely and do your research. Learn about Hair Restoration Surgery Alternatives.

Who should NOT get Surgical Hair Restoration?

Women are usually not good candidates for surgical hair transplantation due to how women lose hair. Women lose hair in a diffuse pattern which makes the transplanted hair susceptible to loss after transplantation. Only women over the age of 45 years of age and with isolated small areas of baldness should get a hair transplant. Female Hair Loss Treatment

Young men under the age of 25
Men under the age 25 are also usually not a good candidates for hair transplantation because it’s unclear how bald he may become later in life. The younger a man is when he begins to lose hair, usually the greater the area of loss down the road. This could be problematic when a young man gets a hair transplant because the area that is covered by a transplant or multiple hair restoration surgeries will most likely continue to bald. If this happens, it will result in an unnatural appearance that looks “puggy” or future additional balding areas will not be able to covered by additional hair transplants because the donor area has already been used up.

Who should get Hair Transplantation?

Men over the age of 30 that have no possibility of hair regrowth in a given area of the scalp are good candidates for hair restoration. Additionally the best candidates are:

  • Men who have a receding hair line
  • Men who are unwilling to use products daily to maintain their hair
  • Men who lost hair over a long period of time
  • Men who have lighter hair

Men over the age of 30 who meet the above criteria could be a good candidate for hair restoration. It is wise to research your alternatives. Now with new hair loss treatments, you can actually regrow hair using a multi therapy hair loss treatment program. Do your research before making any surgical decision that is irreversible.

Phoenix Hair Restoration Alternatives 

For those people who do not want surgery or who are not a candidate for hair restoration surgery in Phoenix AZ have a powerful treatment option that could stop your hair loss and reverse thinning hair. This is ideal for the people listed above that do have hair transplant surgery as an option.

Hair Regrowth Injections - Explained

Posted by William Gaunitz on Tue, Dec 25, 2012 @ 02:50 PM

hair regrowth injections

Hair Regrowth Injections GDE6GUHECQ84 a.k.a. mesotherapy has received a lot of publicity in the media and internet about its possible role in androgenetic alopecia. However, the subject is controversial in view of lack of documented evidence. This article provides a critical commentary on the use of mesotherapy in the management of androgenetic alopecia.

Mesotherapy, a technique involving injections of medications directly into the skin, was first described by a French physician, Dr. Michel Pistor.[1] He first administered procaine intravenously to treat an asthmatic patient and found that the patient’s hearing improved. He then started experimenting on superficial injections of procaine for various indications and coined the term “mesotherapy” in 1976. It has been subsequently tried for treatment of many other conditions such as joint pain, eczema and tinnitus.[2,3] The term mesotherapy was coined to denote “treatment of the mesoderm”.[4]

Hair Regrowth Injections have recently attracted interest, curiosity and publicity as a treatment modality for several cosmetic indications such as cellulite, aging skin and body contouring.[58] There have been claims and reports in internet sites and lay press about its use in management of hairloss too. In India, several esthetic, beauty and hair clinics (some of which are run by nonprofessionals) have advertised this modality extensively in lay press, as a safe and effective remedy for androgenetic alopecia, leading to many patients seeking this treatment. Dermatologists are frequently sought opinion as to the efficacy of such treatments. A critical analysis is therefore necessary to ascertain the role of this treatment in pattern hairloss, if any.

What strikes the author while searching for documented material on the subject, is the near total lack of documented data about all aspects of the treatment — mechanism of action, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, therapeutic regimes, etc., in standard medical journals. Inhouse publications and company brochures suggest that injections of “cocktails” of natural plant extracts, homoeopathic agents, vasodilators, finasteride and minoxidil and vitamins are carried out with a mesogun once in 2—4 weeks. Of these, only minoxidil and finasteride have an established role in the management of pattern hairloss. Both the mechanism of action and the efficacy of other agents are not established and are doubtful.

It is interesting to note that while medline search for key words “mesotherapy” and “hairloss” reveals only two results, a similar search in google reveals 209,000 results!!! Also, the two results on medline search are reports of side effects following the use of mesotherapy for hairloss! One report documented the development of alopecia in two patients following the use of mesotherapy for hairloss.[9] Histopathologic features showed an almost complete absence of terminal anagen hair follicles and a marked increase in the number of telogen germinal units and catagen follicles, suggesting acute noncicatricial alopecia similar to anagen effluvium. The pathogenesis of hair loss in both the cases was difficult to establish. The other article reports the development of multiple abscesses,[10] thereby suggesting that the treatment could have serious adverse effects.

It is also relevant to note here that Federal drug administration (FDA), USA, has not approved this method of treatment for any indication. The CDC has recommended that “providers should adhere to recommend standard precautions, follow safe-injection practices with appropriate aseptic techniques, and inject only FDA approved products that are prepared following guidelines to ensure sterility as described in the FDA’s good manufacturing practices.”[4]

Further, a recent publication of guidelines on esthetic practices in Singapore listed mesotherapy as a List B procedure (List B procedure indicates procedures with low or very low evidence or local medical expert consensus that procedure is neither well-established nor acceptable.)[11]

In view of these data, the current position on the use of mesotherapy in pattern hairloss can be summarized as follows. GDE6GUHECQ84

  1. Data on its safety and efficacy in pattern hairloss have not been adequately and critically evaluated and documented in proper, peer-reviewed clinical trials.
  2. Data evaluating the rationale and pharmacology of the combination of herbal and allopathic medicines used are not adequate. There are no clear-cut guidelines on the dosage and efficacy of the products.
  3. Further, mesotherapy is not entirely a safe technique as publicized in lay media and can give rise to complications, as stated earlier.

Routine use of the technique is therefore not justified. Well-designed controlled scientific studies are required to substantiate the claims of effectiveness of these products. Regulatory authorities and associations have a role to play in ensuring such studies. What is also needed is proper public health education to ensure quality, ethical management and prevention of commercial exploitation of patients.

LaserCap Reviewed

Posted by William Gaunitz on Sat, Nov 17, 2012 @ 09:26 PM

I have seen the LaserCap on the open market now for about 18 months. I am always sceptical of new devices. I have been in the Laser Hair Therapy industry since 2002 and have seen so many devices come and go. If I haven't seen it work for someone first hand, usually I will write it off.

The LaserCap is unique though for one reason. It is the most powerful at home device available to date. After testing and being involved in many clinical studies for laser hair therapy, I know that more power is not necessarily a good thing. More power can lead to overstimulation and aggravation of scalp conditions including psoriasis and fungal infections. Yet, these devices are available and need to be used under the watchful eye of an experienced practitioner.

Why the LaserCap may be better for you than any other at home device:

The LaserCap has 224 pulsed direct light diodes. For about 40% of thelasercap kit people losing their hair, this may be the best at home laser available.

LaserCap users should have:

  • Fine hair
  • Light or natural blond Hair
  • Extremely Thin Hair

If you have thick, black, coarse hair. You should NOT use the LaserCap.

The reason for this is that too much laser can cause rapid shedding. People with thick coarse hair attract more light to the follicle. Think of the hair like a lightning rod. Each rod will attract light to the root of the follicle and delivery the energy. When the right amount of energy is delivered, the hair will grow more effectively. If too much energy is delivered, the hair may shed or slow its growth. This is the case in laser hair removal. High amounts of laser are delivered to the follicle and the hair sheds and grows back finer.

Now, people who have fine, thin, or light hair, attract less light to their hair follicles. This is due to the fact that light hair will reflect some light and fine hair is not as dense and needs more laser stimulation to grow.

For these people, the LaseCap is most likely the best chance at successful laser treatment from home. Below you will see an example of hair types that will benefit from the LaserCap.

Get the LaserCap for 25% off at Evolution Hair Loss Institute now or call 480-222-4247.

LaserCap Correct Use Chart

For the hair types mentioned above, I am now recommending the LaserCap for home use.

The LaserCap should be used as follows:

  • Weeks 0-4: 5 mins 2 x per week
  • Month 2: 6 mins 2 x per week
  • Month 3: 7 mins 2 x per week
  • Month 4: 8 mins 2 x per week
  • Month 5: 9 mins 2 x per week
  • Month 6: 10 mins 2 x per week
  • Month 7-12: you may increase if needed to 15 mins 2 x per week

If you have seen rapid regrowth by the end of month 6, do not increase the laser duration. Maintain the 10 minutes 2 x per week. This mean that you have responded well to lower intensity light and do not need to increase it. If you increase the laser duration after regrowing alot of hair, you risk overstimulation. For more personalized instruction you can always call our main office at 480-222-4247 and ask our advice.

LaserCap Specs:

  • 224 pulsed diodes
  • 650nm wavelength
  • 5 milliwatt power per diode
  • Completely portable & easy to use
  • Hands-free device
  • Fits comfortably in almost any hat

IGrow Laser for Women?

Posted by William Gaunitz on Mon, Sep 24, 2012 @ 01:51 PM

Evolution Hair Centers has been using the iGrow Laser in our clinics now for Outpatient use and for those who are post-treatment since March of 2011.

Hair Loss In Women 1In last year, I have seen the device work very well for those people who have used it. The device holds up under normal wear-and-tear and does not have the electrical problems that I have seen with similar devices.

Because the iGrow Laser has 27 laser diodes and 30 LEDs, the device gives good hands free coverage of the the top of the scalp that can be used consistently from home twice weekly for 20 minutes.

I have seen it work especially well for females in the the early stages of the thinning. Females seems to do better with the iGrow Laser because they are not experiencing extreme DHT suppression of the hair follicles as men do. Women can use the iGrow Laser with a herbal progesterone cream to create an excellent result because they are counter acting testosterone and stimulation the hair follicles with Laser Light simultaneously.

It has even better results when used with a full program that includes topical Minoxidil, vitamins, and herbal progesterone cream as with our Women's Extreme Hair Loss Treatment Kit.

For a personalized consultation on this matter call 480-222-4247 to find out if this is right for you. Otherwise, you can see our iGrow Packages at our online store.

Perfect Image Minoxidil- where did they go?

Posted by William Gaunitz on Thu, Feb 23, 2012 @ 12:16 AM

Perfect Image Minoxidil had a good thing going for awhile. They were selling 15% Minoxidil with Azelaic acid, among other topical minoxidil formulas, over the counter.

While they did have a big following, I believe that they were eventually shut down for destributing their minoxidil products without a physician's prescription.

In the US, all minoxidil products formulated with more than 5% minoxidil require a physician's presciption. Perfect Image had been selling many formulas over 5% for years on Amazon and other internet resellers.

Minoxidil Once Daily Topicals to enhance Laser Hair Therapy

Posted by William Gaunitz on Wed, Nov 02, 2011 @ 02:57 PM

Laser Hair Therapy can be greatly enhanced with use of  5% Minoxidil compounded with natural topical anti-inflammatories.

Female under the ER610 LaserDue to Minoxidil’s vasodilatation properties, it can perfect enhancement to Low Level Laser Therapy. Minoxidil is responsible for expanding and reinforcing blood vessels and capillaries that feed the hair follicle. When increased nutrients from the blood are feeding the scalp, the treated hair follicles are forced into the growth phase of the hair cycle and lead to longer fuller hair. This will create a minor increase in hair density and will act as a substantially better starting point for laser hair treatments.

When the hair follicle is already in the growth phase, laser hair therapy will able to add its benefits on top of the benefits from Minoxidil. This actually creates a multiplying effect to each product so that you can get up to 4 times the result of using laser or Minoxidil alone.

Low level laser therapy for hair growth also increases blood flow to the scalp and accelerates cell regeneration. When used in conjunction with Minoxidil, these actions strengthen the entire vascular system of the scalp. Capillaries are expanded with Minoxidil and strengthened and expanded further with laser.

Other topical ingredients further enhance treatment for male and female pattern hair loss suffers. These following ingredients can improve results by another multiplier because it removed some of the other reason for hair loss

Azelaic Acid-is useful as a hair growth stimulant. A research report by Stamatiadis in 1988 suggested that azelaic acid (and combinations of it, with zinc ion and vitamin B6) was a strong DHT inhibitor. Di-hydro-testosterone or DHT has been found to be the cause of male and female pattern hair loss.

Retinoic Acid- also called tretinoin, is the acidified form of vitamin A. Retinoic acid is used to remove fine skin wrinkles and roughness. It works as a natural chemical peel, enabling better penetration of minoxidil into the scalp and speeding the cell regeneration process.

Caffeinated Green Tea Extract- Green tea contains high levels of substances called catechin polyphenols, known to possess strong antioxidant, anticarcinogenic, antitumorigenic, and even antibiotic properties. Recent study results have found that caffeine in topical formulas helps to regulate the effects of testosterone levels. [1]

Licorice Root Extract- Licorice is used to treat general skin problems. It is known to be healing and soothing to dry and irritated skin. It is particularly used as a facial oil for acne to expedite healing. Licorice root is also another herb that prevents hair loss and further damage to the hair.

B5- is the only vitamin (Vitamin B5) known to penetrate the hair shaft. It has historically been used to build healthy follicles and reduce graying.

Aloe- Aloe Vera Gel is rich in mucupolysaccharides which provide a natural and anti-inflammatory effect.

Top Foods and Tips to Promote Hair Growth

Posted by Robert Beale on Wed, Apr 06, 2011 @ 06:13 PM
foods hair loss

As we continue to grow and find new tools that battle hair loss naturally, we also need to give serious thought about what we put in our bodies to be able to obtain natural hair regrowth.  While it is very important to cleanse and feed nutrients to the scalp daily, that alone will not bring back fuller, healthy hair.  After years of studies and clinical research we have made many improvements but none more important than dietary changes.  Below are a few food tips and recommendations we make to our clients.  


Body Ecology Diet  

One of the most important books on health and internal balance.  The Body Ecology Diet discusses the elimination of simple sugars, carbs from the diet.  The addition of Pre and Probiotics and healthy fats.  This book shows you how to restore and maintain the inner ecology your body needs to function properly and to eliminate or control the symptoms that rob you of the joy of living.  Over 180,000 copies of The Body Ecology Diet have been sold...mostly as a result of friends telling friends about it, not advertising. Why? It works!  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!  

Vegetable/Fruit Juice  

Juicing is a way of life for many people. The health benefits associated with juicing are immeasurable.Juice leafy green vegetables, such as spinach and parsley regularly. Dark green vegetables provide iron and calcium, as well as Vitamin A and C. These vitamins assist in the production of new cells, which in turn conditions the hair and promotes hair growth.  There are a wide range of juicers available on the market. A few brands that we recommend are Breville and Champion


Alfalfa Sprouts - The only plant that supplies a full range of vitamins from A, B, C, E to K.  Sprinkle a hand full daily in sandwiches, wraps or salads. 

Wheat Germ - Wheat germ is a source of fibers and several essential nutrients including folic acid, vitamin E, thiamin, zinc and niacin. Add a scoop to your juices or protein shakes daily.

Prince William's Hair Loss has become a Web Sensation

Posted by Robert Beale on Thu, Mar 31, 2011 @ 04:30 PM

Prince William Hair Loss

Unfortunately, for Prince William the press have been following his thinning hairline for years now, but recently the pun...has been quite over-the-top.

The British tabloids have been merciless, constantly punning the "hair to the throne" theme, and comparing his hair loss to that of his father, Prince Charles, and the follically challenged prime minister, David Cameron.

The bottom line is that the Prince is still young and has plenty of hair that could be saved from the inevitable baldness that runs in his family.  Our advice to him would be to get moving as quickly as possible before it's too late!

Why is Hair Curly?

Posted by Robert Beale on Thu, Mar 31, 2011 @ 10:28 AM

curly hair

A recent study was conducted to find out what causes hair to be straight or curly.  The consensus is it really has nothing to do with the hair itself, but rather the hair follicle.

“This tiny structure guides the hair fiber up a sort of tube as it grows. The inside of the tube determines if the hair is curly or straight — ovals produce curly hair and circular tubes yield straight hair.”

NEW Hair Loss Cure from Mice Experiment - Really??

Posted by Rob Beale on Mon, Feb 28, 2011 @ 04:18 PM

Scientists and researchers recently published a report that they have have found a chemical compound that induces hair growth by blocking a stress-related hormone associated with hair loss.  

"Our findings show that a short-duration treatment with this compound causes an astounding long-term hair regrowth in chronically stressed mutant mice,"

-Million Mulugeta, an adjunct professor of medicine in the division of digestive diseases.

For some reason, a successful experiment for irritable bowel disease became instantaneously famous for mice that grew back their hair. In the first place, this is what the experiment was all about. The mice were supposed to grow back their hair if and when the CRF antagonist works. This means that astressin B is an effective drug in treating stress related irritable bowel disease.

When we’re stressed out, we experience all sorts of bowel problems like diarrhea, constipation, ulcer, vomiting, etc... This experiment shows that astressin B can potentially reverse all that.

Now can astressin be used as a treatment for stress related hair loss? Well, it worked for the mice but using it on people, this is still very much in the beginning stages or very farfetched.

Why? Because there is no way to compare what the mice been through, the mice were genetically altered to be under constant stress from birth. In fact, they don’t even know what stress is because they already consumed by it. No stress triggers, no stressful moments because they are stressed constantly.  The truth is, stress-related hair loss(Telegen Effluvium), is not that common.

Can Stress Cause Hair Loss

Posted by Rob Beale on Thu, Jan 06, 2011 @ 12:33 PM
If your hair is thinning or falling out, you are probably anxious to find out why. Is hair loss due to stress, diet, heredity, or some other factor? The answer is “yes” to all. The following are some types of hair loss, with information about each:

Normal Hair Loss: 

We all lose about 150-200 hairs per day, out of the 100,000 contained by the average scalp. This is due to a few factors:

  • Lifespan: The average lifespan of a single hair is 4.5 years; the hair then falls out and is replaced within 6 months by a new hair.
  • Styling: Harsh chemicals used in some products can weaken and damage the follicles.
  • Aging: After the age of 30 (and often before), men and women both start losing hair, though men tend to do so at a faster rate.
Hereditary Hair Loss: 
Genetic hair loss isn’t due to excessive amounts of hair falling out, as many believe, but to an insufficient amount of hairs growing back to replace the hairs that have been shed. Hereditary baldness is associated with a few factors:
  • Gender: Hereditary, or “pattern” baldness, is much more common in men than in women.
  • Age: By age 30, 1 in 4 men are balding; by age 60, 2 in 3 men are balding or are bald.
  • Hormones: Pattern baldness is associated with testosterone; women who have more of it in their system as they age tend to lose (or, technically, fail to re-grow) more hair. This is also why more men experience pattern baldness.
Stress and Hair Loss: 
You may have heard that stress can cause hair loss, and it’s true. Excessive physical or emotional stress, like that associated with injury, illness or surgery, can cause one of two types of hair loss:
  • The more common type is called telogen effluvium. With this less severe type of hair loss, the hair stops growing and lies dormant, only to fall out 2 or 3 months later. Then it grows back within 6 to 9 months.
  • The other type of stress-induced hair loss is known as alopecia areata, and involves a white blood cell attack on the hair follicles. With this type of hair loss, the hair also falls out within weeks (usually in patches), but can involve the entire scalp and even body hair. Hair may grow back on its own, but treatment may also be required.
Other Hair Loss Factors: 
There are other factors that can also cause hair loss, including but not limited to:
  • Illness
  • Medication
  • Hormonal changes
  • Pregnancy, childbirth, and birth control pill usage
  • Nervous habits
  • Chemotherapy
If your hair is thinning, or you’re experiencing baldness and it seems abnormal (i.e. if you’re in your teens or 20s, if it’s an odd pattern, etc.) it’s a good idea to speak with an Evolution Hair Growth Specialist to determine the cause. Also, if you’re concerned that stress is the culprit, it’s always a good idea to cut down on lifestyle stress and find some effective coping techniques for the stress that remains.

Spencer Forrest X5 Laser Reviewed by William Gaunitz

Posted by Rob Beale on Wed, Oct 06, 2010 @ 03:38 PM

I have reviewed numerous handheld lasers on the market.  After seeing thousands of clients come through the Evolution, I did not see any handheld unit besides the Erchonia THL-1 Laser that actually worked well enough to carry in our clinics.
Most commercially available handheld lasers only use 5 - 9 unfocused diffuse light diodes. This simply means that there would not be enough energy available to create a notable difference in most hair loss situations. Different hair types require different levels of energy to see results. Dark to black hair usually can only tolerate 30 diodes of 635nm (3.5-5mW) energy at 2 x per week before overstimulation. Light to blond hair can tolerate almost double that at 61 diodes of the same energy 2 x per week.
Overstimulation can occur in anyone who has received too much laser treatment for their particular situation. Overstimulation can cause a stalling of hair growth (slow growth), scalp pain, and in many cases rapid shedding of hair in the treated area. It is very important to use the correct dosage of energy for every individual in the correct intervals.
With that being said, it is also very important to get enough laser energy to ensure proper hair growth. For a diffuse light diode handheld device to really create a positive impact on the average hair loss case, the laser device would need to at least contain 15 diffuse light diodes. You must also note that not all diodes are created equal as well. You must have a quality built device to maintain adequate and sustained power supply to each diode to ensure a quality dose of energy.
There is only one device that I have found currently available that fits these criteria. This device is the Spencer Forrest X5 Laser. The Spencer Forrest has been well thought out, is reliable, and has shown actual clinical evidence in the Evolution Clinics of producing enough energy to improve hair growth in most hair loss cases. The X5 is also currently going through FDA clinical trials to receive a 510K market clearance for the promotion of new hair growth.
It is of my opinion that the X5 Laser is by far the greatest value against competitive units at a price point of $298.90. Sunetics makes a 15 diode paddle brush laser selling at $795.00 that did perform well in an Evolution Clinical review, but had other flaws. The Sunetics unit consistently lost its battery cover during regular use and the rechargeable battery failed in many instances. Dealing with Sunetics customer service department was an issue as well. It took over 6 weeks to have one of their units repaired.
The Spencer Forrest laser at treatment protocol of 15 minutes 3 times weekly produced good results for dark hair. For light hair and blonds 20 minutes 3 times weekly was the most effective protocol. Evolution Hair Centers now carries the Spencer Forrest X5 Laser with or without a complete Evolution Hair Centers treatment program. If you are interesting purchasing an X5 Laser, browse the online store here to purchase the device at the greatest value on the web. FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY....EACH X5 laser comes with a FREE HAIRSTEM KIT (a $85 value)!
For more information on the X5 Laser of Evolution Hair Centers homecare programs, call 480-222-HAIR(4247) and speak with one of our Hair Growth Specialists.

Steroids, HGH and Hair Loss

Posted by Rob Beale on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 @ 07:33 PM

In the past few years we've seen the news coverage spotlight ofroids bonds professional athletes and their use of steroids and human growth hormone(HGH).  While we now all know the damage that these chemicals can cause to the body (liver damage, high blood pressure, extreme aggression), many individuals simply don't know the major increase of hair loss that can occur.  

Why and How

by using steroids or HGH consistently your body increases its natural testosterone levels and therefore increasing the muscle mass.  Androgenetic Alopecia, male/female pattern hair loss is predetermined genetically and is directly tied to hormone levels. When hair follicles become damaged and clogged through the DHT (dihydrotestosterone) process, the resulting factor is the thinning and shedding of hairs.  Simply put, when testosterone levels are elevated so is the hair loss. 

What to do if you're in this situation

If you are currently using steroids or HGH or have used them in the past and have noticed hair thinning or excessive shedding the best option would be to talk to a hair growth specialist.  Once a scalp analysis has been performed a strict regime will follow to stop the hair loss and concentrate on thickening up the damaged hairs.

Show Overview:

Women's hair is a representation of their underlying general heath. The condition of women's hair can give the signs of underlying nutritional and hormonal conditions.

In many cases inherited Female Pattern Hair Loss is the primary cause of a woman's hair loss condition, but not the reason the rate of loss is so fast. for women to treat their hair loss successfully, a woman must first establish why her hair is in a serious loss pattern.

Modern Allopathic medicine has no concrete solutions for women's hair loss. The reason for this, is that every woman is different. There is no magic pill that will fix the female condition. For women, their hair is their crowning glory.

It is not socially acceptable for a woman to lose her hair like it is for a man. Women's hair loss can cause serious physiological trauma, and depression.

At Evolution Hair Centers, we are so successful at treating women's hair loss because we look at the entire condition of our female clients. Many underlying conditions can exacerbate or even be the cause of her hair loss.

Certain prescription drugs have been seen to seriously increase the rate of female hair loss by creating imbalance in the delicate internal microflora of a female's gastrointestinal systems. Drugs such as the following can trigger hair loss with seemingly no explanation:

Birth control pills
Hormone replacement (with testosterone)
Hormone replacement (without testosterone)

Women's conditions such as:
· Candida
· Hyper-thyroidism (too much hormone)
· Hypo-thyroidism (too little hormone)
· Stress
· Physical Trauma
· Child Birth
· Menopause

Hair Shedding Tips for the Fall

Posted by Rob Beale on Fri, Sep 17, 2010 @ 02:19 PM

Now that fall is here, below are a few tips on how to maintain a healthy scalp to prevent excessive shedding from occurring... 

falling leaves by Dieffi

Healthy Lifestyle for Hair Loss Control
A strong diet will help you maintain the "inner ecology" your body needs to function properly and to eliminate hair loss and promote hair growth. To avoid any kind of nutritional deficiency, you should include a variety of vegetables in your diet so that you get your daily dose of essential hair vitamins and minerals.

A regular workout regime also helps you control hair fall if the cause is associated with poor blood circulation. Exercising stimulates blood circulation that helps in strengthening hair roots resulting in less hair loss. Exercising also secretes some hormones that help you relieve stress that in turn helps in less hair shedding.

Apart from this, avoid late night parties and try to stay away from alcohol. It would reduce the amount of toxins in the body and give adequate rest to the body including your hair and scalp.

Products for Hair Loss Control
If the root cause of excessive hair loss is some diseases such as thyroid imbalance or psoriasis, you should consult a hair growth specialist or doctor and follow the recommended hair loss treatment. Even in case of hereditary and biological factors, there are topical formulas and herbal hair growth supplements that can come to your rescue. 

Hair Fall Treatment Tips
Given below are some of the habits that you must inculcate in your everyday routine that helps you control the hair fall and acts as an effective hair fall treatment for women.

  • Do not tie your hair very tightly as it causes hair pull that results in hair breakage.
  • Do not wash your hair with extremely hot water as it weakens the hair bonds resulting in hair loss. Use warm or cold water to wash hair.
  • Do not comb hair vigorously as it can damage follicles. Use a comb with soft bristles.
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals on hair. Go for mild, soft, and natural hair products.
  • Avoid overuse of hair straighteners, perming lotions, irons, curlers, etc. Also avoid using metal and sharp hair accessories, instead go for wooden accessories.
  • Maintain hygiene when it comes to hair. Keep your combs, brushes, and accessories clean and avoid sharing them with anybody to prevent infections.

With these few handy tips on hair fall treatment, I am sure you will be benefited and will get back that bounce of dark, thick hair.

Pantene hair loss complaints escalate

Posted by Rob Beale on Mon, Sep 13, 2010 @ 03:55 PM

When dealing with hair loss it is important to set realistic expectations about the way your stylist/barber is cutting your hair. A great haircut can not only give a great shape to your facial features but it can also lessen the look of your hair loss.  

for example, Klaus Meine lead singer of the rock band Scorpions thinning top and afro type sides during the 80's made his hair loss extremely noticeable.

Accutane Hair Loss: Why does it happen and what can I do about it?

Posted by William Gaunitz on Fri, Sep 10, 2010 @ 12:45 PM

Accutane Hair Loss:  Why does it happen and what can I do about it?

Accutane Hair Loss is a common side effect of the drug Accutane (chemical name isotretinoin) prescribed for Acne. Despite this, Accutane is one of the most widely used acne medications available. It can be hefty price to pay for beautiful skin. Do you want to keep your hair or get rid of acne? This is a serious factor to consider when choosing to use the drug.

Will my hair grow back?

In many cases your hair will grow back naturally. But if you have pattern hair loss in your family, either on your mother’s of father side, the hair loss may be permanent. The reason this occurs is that your body will not invest the resources to rebuild damaged hair follicles that are already predetermined to fall out in the future from androgenetic alopecia. This happens with other drugs and medical treatments including chemotherapy.

Addtional Accutane contains high levels of Vitamin A. And with prolong use; many people can develop Vitamin A sensitivity or allergy. High levels of vitamin A are tough on the liver and allergic reactions over time can be commonplace. The additional inflammation caused by this allergy can lead to more hair loss. Sometimes the quality of the hair is damaged. Hair becomes lighter and finer throughout the scalp. In many cases breakage and a shortening of the follicles growth cycle becomes a problem.

It is hard to hard to know if you will lose hair when taking Accutane. But if it does happen to you there is a solution...

Treatment Options:

I have personally treated many people with Accutane related hair loss. There are couple steps to take once you have stopped the drug to reverse the damage. Yes, it works and very well.

Step 1: Quick Round of Liver Detox

Due to the fact that Vitamin A impacts the liver, you want to first cleanse the liver and boost the immune system. I recommend the Evolution Liver Detox Tea and Bentonite Detox to achieve this. It takes one month and can be used with other products without discomfort. I recommend to do this again six months after the first Detox simply to keep the system cleansed.  

Step 2: Topical Hair Growth Stimulus

You need to use something to “kick start” or restimulate the hair follicles after the damage caused by Accutane. Minoxidil is good product for this. But in many cases, people with Accutane related hair loss have developed very sensitive skin. Because of this they need to use something that is powerful, but is also gentle enough for the recovering health of the scalp. I recommend our HairStem topicals or HairStem kit for this portion of the treatment. It is used once daily at night before bed and has been consistently used very successfully for the recovery of Accutane related hair loss.  

Step 3: For more advanced recovery, Low Level Laser Therapy for Hair Growth

If you are looking to recover as much hair as possible, Low Level Laser Therapy for hair loss is a good solution. Laser can help restore proper blood flow and nutrient supply to the areas of loss. I would recommend this for people who have had severe loss due to Accutane. This very effective when used with the Detox and Topical Therapies. I would not recommend laser alone when treating Accutane related hair loss. Your immune system and liver health should be restored prior to any immuno-stimulus provided from laser treatment.

Super Grow Laser Reviewed

Posted by William Gaunitz on Tue, Jul 20, 2010 @ 10:24 PM

Super Grow Laser Reviewed

After many inquiries from clients, I have decided to publically review the Super Grow Hair Laser and provide a true review of the device.Super Grow Laser Reviewed

I have been hearing about the Super Grow Hair Laser for about a year now. It is sometimes difficult to be completely objective when I see these new “homemade” devices emerge onto the market.

I understand fully that there is a high demand for a low cost, multi-diode device. People suffering from hair loss have seen the success of Clinical programs and automatically assume that all devices are created equal. The laymen hair loss suffer then turns into an easy target, lured into spending $700 or $1000 for a device that seems to have a much greater perceived “value”. Unfortunately, the true value of laser therapy comes from the success of effective combination treatments using medical grade lasers that range in price from $20k - $50K… not cheap imitations.

In regard to the Super Grow Lasers, I have a couple key points that should accurately create a sense of true value. So let’s get started.

1.    First and foremost, the Super Grow Laser device uses cheap 650nm diodes.

Why is this bad?  First, most clinically proven devices are using 670nm or 635nm medical grade diodes. Secondly, when you are using “cheap” diodes, you simply have no way of knowing what type of energy is being delivered to your scalp. You wouldn’t just stick your figure in a light socket and think your hair will grow back. You need a very specific type of energy to produce hair growth results. There are substantial differences in Diodes and Diode Modules, yet to the general consumer they look relatively the same.  For example, I just Googled “laser pointers.” That search found that all Laser Pointers are pretty much Class 3A devices using  5 milliwatts, 650 nm diodes, retailing for about $6.88 per unit. The diodes themselves can be purchased for about $.50 apiece.

diode laserThese are the same diodes as – or at least quite similar to – the ones used in the Super Grow Laser. So if the Super Grow Laser is using 50 of these diodes, you are actually over paying by about $210 based about their $550 price point. You would think that you could probably get a volume discount.
Using this rationale, the Super Grow Laser can simply be considered an overpriced Laser Pointer.

Now that may sound a bit harsh, but you must consider the difference in Laser Diodes and Laser Diodes Modules. All laser diodes require a microchip on the back of them that control the amount of energy the passes through the diode. If you do not know what you are getting, you can get too much or too little energy that can result in more hair loss and shedding or no result at all.
If you understand what I just wrote, a poor laser device or the misapplication of a laser can actually cause more hair loss. I have a client who has personally experienced this by using the Super Grow Laser for maintenance after our program.

2.    Secondly, what are you paying for when you purchase a device like this?... Most people are typically paying for a perceived result or benefit. So I ask in regard to Super Grow Laser, where are the results? I have reviewed their website and they have posted 3 sets of before and after pictures. These posted results are very limited. If they have all of this clinical data on why their laser works so well, why don’t they have more results?  Oh and btw, they use our old Gaunitz Hair Growth Centers You tube video to point to the success of Laser Hair Therapy Yet, their device is completely different than ours. Super Grow Laser Reviewed Evolution Video

The answer is that they are simply using the success of clinical laser programs to misrepresent, market, and sell their lasers. More importantly, they are pointing to the experience of others that get success using different lasers and combination therapy. This leads me to my final point.

3.    The Super Grow Laser’s lack of Experience with Laser Technology. If the Super Grow Laser was produced by one of the experienced laser manufacturers, I may feel differently. But the Super Grow Laser, in my opinion, is just a laser put together by people who are making a “look-a-like device”.  One of the other reasons I feel this way, is that some of my clients have tried that device and it has led to dramatic shedding. This validates the understanding that not all laser radiation is good. If you want to use laser, you should use a laser produced by a manufacturer that specializes in hair regrowth and has a proven track record for results.

So after all of this, what is my advice for someone who is thinking about buying one? Be sure to consider the risks before purchasing. If you have the money to spend on a handheld laser, buy the Erchonia THL-1 Device. I have personally witnessed tremendous results with that device. The Erchonia THL-1 Laser has been the same since 2005 and endorsed by people like Dr. Alan Bauman of Bauman Medical and myself…. because it works. It is also manufactured by Erchonia, the top Low Level Laser Therapy company in the USA. With more FDA approvals than anyone else, they are clearly one of the top manufactures in the industry.

If you do not have the money to spend, hold off on buying a laser and get to the bottom of the cause of your hair loss. There are so many reasons for hair loss, you should figure out why you are losing yours before trying to treat it. Seek out a qualified Hair Regrowth Specialist who can clinically monitor your progress and ensure results. This is something that myself and my staff can help you with, if you are interested.

Lastly… be easy on yourself. If you have been duped by hair loss products and services before, don’t give up. You can regrow your hair. You simply need to find the right product for you, and perhaps make some lifestyle changes.  When you are ready, Evolution Hair Centers, is here to help.

Itchy Scalp and Hair Loss: Causes and Treatment

Posted by William Gaunitz on Mon, Jul 19, 2010 @ 10:04 PM

Causes of itchy scalp and its relationship to hair loss:

Have you experienced itchy scalp and also noticed that you are losing hair in the itchy areas?Microbes

Have you noticed that your itchy scalp gets worse when you're in more humid climate or when you are wearing hat?
If so, you probably have a microbial overgrowth infection of the scalp.

Why does this happen? Is there anything that you can do to stop it?

Answer: Yes, the itchiness of the scalp is usually caused by an overgrowth of microbials on the surface of the scalp. These microbials can be fungus or yeasts. Both love to live in warm wet environments. This is why the when you go to a more humidity climate or it happens to be more humid on a given day, the itchiness will worsen.

Microbials also love sugar. Many people have noticed that when they consume foods containing high amounts of sugar such as fruits, candy, sweets, and enriched flours, their scalp itchiness gets worse.

Why does the itchy scalp happen in area of (male and female) pattern hair loss?
Answer: Microbials again like to live in warm wet environments. The swollen sebaceous glands of hair follicles affected by pattern hair loss are a perfect habitat for these microbials. The glands can be swollen to up to 10x their size. The yeasts and fungus that live inside these swollen hair follicles also have an ongoing food source of blood sugar and cellular waste produced by the sebaceous gland.

So how do you resolve this issue?
Answer: Kill the microbes and shrink the sebaceous gland. This is easier said than done, but the HairStem kit by Evolution Hair Centers is first line of defense against this issue.

The HairStem kit was specially developed to be Anti-Microbial and stop the future development of microbial colonies on the scalp. This is only the first line of defense. Improved diet and immune system recovery are the long term answers. For more information on this issue and other hair loss solutions, call 480-222-HAIR.

Evolution Hair Centers comes to the Biltmore!

Posted by William Gaunitz on Tue, Mar 23, 2010 @ 11:42 PM

Evolution Hair Centers Comes to the Biltmore/Arcadia!

At the age of 17 the future lays before us like a brand new book waiting to be written. Milestones recently passed - turning 16, earning a drivers license, attending prom, playing sports at the junior varsity and varsity levels, applying for college admission and preparing for high school graduation. We believe that life can only get better. For many young adults, this is a time for embarking on a journey of self-discovery or even a fresh start. One young man made a discovery that would send him on a journey to his future life's work.

Will Gaunitz started to lose his hair at 17. The hair was coming out fast and he panicked. At first he tried Rogaine while in military school. Gaunitz believed that by following the directions, he could save the hair he had. He used the product faithfully for six months and it appeared the treatment was working. Another six months passed and no additional hair loss, but no new hair growth. He tapered off Rogaine and his hair remained the same for two years. Unfortunately, by the age of 21, the hair loss started again and this time it was back with a vengeance. The stress of a new job with the demands of increased hours did not help matters. Gaunitz again tried Rogaine, but after six months he lost even more hair. He visited a dermatologist who prescribed Propecia. The tag team approach of using Rogaine and Propecia produced yet more hair loss. At 22 Gaunitz was sincerely worried. He tried many of the prescription, over the counter, herbal and topical remedies. Nothing worked. He considered surgery, as in hair transplants. Sadly, at the age of 22 the doctor said he was a poor candidate due to his youth. Instead of freaking out and giving up, Gaunitz began researching low-level laser therapy on the Internet. He visited a clinic in Arizona for this new treatment. Finally, after a month, progress. At two months the hair loss had stopped. By three months new hair began to emerge. Six months later he had regrown almost 60% of the hair previously lost.

That's when Gaunitz experienced the quintessential light bulb moment. After researching hair loss for two years, he knew too much to return to the old remedies. He believed that with the right combination of products in conjunction with the laser, better results could be produced. He quit his job and began to create a new laser clinic concept. Gaunitz went to study the latest techniques in Europe and Australia.
Gaunitz pioneered a five-step program that ensures results. It is a whole body approach with synergistic elements that work together from the inside out. The program starts with the Evolution Laser. The Elite Regeneration Laser (or ER610) is a cold laser. Designed for scalp stimulation and healing, it penetrates the skin without heat or damage. Benefits include improved circulation, increased cell metabolism, anti-inflammatory effects and fast wound healing. The FDA has approved this low-level laser treatment.

Step two involves Hairstem PM and Pmb, topical treatments to be used in conjunction with the special shampoo. As part of the GHS or Gaunitz Hair Science product line, the GHS 360 products are to be used at home. The PM formula contains five percent minoxidil and vitamin A as well as aloe, licorice extract, caffeinated green tea extract, B5, B6, glycerin and alcohol. The Pmb formula contains five percent minoxidil, azelaic acid, aloe gel, licorice extract, B5, B6, caffeinated green tea extract, tea tree oil, glycerin and alcohol. These proprietary blends are holistic, all natural, chemical free products. GHS products are the result of clinical research.

Step three - Internal detox starts with a three-step supplement program. GHS DHT Command assists in keeping the scalp free of toxins that interfere with hair growth. This is the more natural alternative to Propecia. GHS Essential Fatty Acids EFA sounds complicated, but really are not. Essential fatty acids are a collective association of fatty acids that are required by the human body for health. These happen to be omega 6 and omega 9. This product means to reduce tissue inflammation and increase cellular regeneration. GHS Ana Growth vitamin balances the body and keeps the hair healthy and shiny. It is a rotation of over-the-counter drugs and pharmaceuticals. These elements work synergistically to promote rapid cell regeneration, resistance to toxins, improve digestion, and protect hair follicles from future damage.

Step four - the anti-microbial hair system is an integral part of hair regrowth. GHS Hairstem Anti-Bacterial Treatment shampoo helps play a role in inhibiting inflammation, infection and conditions that impede the hair restoration process.

Step five - internal detoxification, a vital stage in the process of hair regrowth. GHS Detox Tea is a natural cleansing tea that flushes out toxins and promotes better well-being. Active ingredients include dandelion root, licorice, burdock root, cinnamon and citrus peel. Sonne #7 Bentonite Intestinal Detox is a product designed to carry out a seven-day cleanse or fast. Both help cleanse the liver and kidneys.

Evolution Hair Centers has 5 locations. As of April 1, it becomes the only nationally franchised hair growth center. Visit the clinic at 1490 South Price Road, Suite 211 in Chandler or 7450 East Pinnacle Peak Road, Suite 258 in North Scottsdale. Facilities are also available in Woodland Hills, California and Southampton, New York. Evolution Hair Centers opens their newest office on March 1. It is located at 2999 North 44th Street, Suite 520 in central Phoenix. For more information or to book a scalp consultation, please call (602) 386-2737.

How to control hair loss and extreme shedding?

Posted by William Gaunitz on Sun, Mar 07, 2010 @ 04:12 PM

Rapid shedding is usually caused by an assault on the immune system. This can be caused by a variety of external and internal sources such as stress, prescription drugs, anti-biotics, excessive alcohol, marijuana usage, and bodily trauma.

The good news is that to control the shedding, the actions are the same.

1. Detoxification:
A. Sweat- run, exercise, steam, simply get your sweat glands working. The same glands that are in your skin that manifest sweating are also in your hair follicles. By inducing rapid sweating you will flush the hair follicles that are being effected by the negative immuno-atmosphere. For extreme shedding, sweat daily... then drink plenty of water.
B. Decrease sugar consumption- sugar can feed negative inflammatory microbes in your skin and hair follicles. By decreasing sugar consumption, you will inadvertently decrease those inflammatory microbes. Remember, sugar comes in many forms. Flours, fruit, sweeteners (sorbitol counts), and milk (lactose) contain "sugar". Veggies, protein sources, and teas are recommended within the sugar reduction period. This dietary change may need to last a week or even months in some extreme circumstances.

2.Shedding control products:
C. Topical anti-microbials: inflammation caused by these microbesHairStem Kit can be controlled by applications of antimicrobials nightly. The HairStem topical and haircare kit is only hair care system that can achieve total antimicrobial suppression. Apply the PM and PMb topical alternating nightly and shampoo with the HairStem shampoo daily.

The alternating usage of the topical product kit decreases the chance of microbes on the scalp building a resistance to the treatment.

For more information on this protocol, call (480) 374-5765.

Low Level Laser Therapy for Hair Loss, "The Bald Truth"

Posted by William Gaunitz on Sun, Jan 10, 2010 @ 11:01 PM

I have been on “center stage” in the field of Low Level Laser Therapy for hair loss since late 2002. Since then, many companies have open their doors attempting to do what we do in pursuit of simply making money. 

The Bald Truth

Tonight, I was on the Bald Truth Radio Show with host Spencer Kobren discussing a former client who has opened up shop and has potentially defrauded hundreds of people. The state of Illinois has filed suit again him and hopefully his reign of terror will soon be over.

With that being said, I would like to reiterate the power of Low Level Laser Therapy when used correctly to help substantially reverse hair loss. Laser Hair Therapy, although powerful, is simply a tool in the whole scope of your personal hair loss treatment.

Laser Hair Therapy must be used in conjunction with the correct essential adjuncts to create dramatic results on the masses. After watching literally thousands of clients regrow hair over the years, there is one thing that I have observed that always remains true… everyone is different. You must use every tool in your arsenal to ensure hair re-growth on everyone.

In the Evolution Hair Centers clinics, we use “integrated” Low level Laser therapy techniques in all of our hair loss treatment programs. By integrating therapies, the client has the greatest opportunity for success because you are not simply relying on one method to produce results. Laser Hair Therapy will only enhance your forward hair growth progress once the root cause of a client’s hair loss has been corrected successfully.

At Evolution Hair Centers our integrated programs produce dramatic results. With an 8 year proven track record, I look forward to continuing to produce client success stories one client-at-a-time and pioneering the greatest success in the Low Level Laser Hair Therapy field.

Jury Awards $50 Million to Avacor Victims

Posted by William Gaunitz on Tue, Dec 29, 2009 @ 08:20 PM
An Alameda County, Calif., jury late last month returned a $50 million verdict (.pdf) in a class action that sought relief for Californians who'd bought Avacor, a hair-loss remedy that was marketed as an all-natural, clinically tested product.

Attorneys fees have yet to be decided, said L. Timothy Fisher, of Walnut Creek, Calif., firm Bramson, Plutzik, Mahler & Birkhaeuser. New York lawyer Scott Bursor and New York firm Faruqi & Faruqi also represented the plaintiffs. There were about 150,000 purchases of Avacor in California during the class period, but since some were reorders, the exact size of the class is unclear, Fisher said.

The outcome against two defendants marked the second trial victory in the same class action for the plaintiff lawyers. The earlier trial had ended in a $40 million win against different defendants, but Fisher said the awards from the trials will not be added together, and he expects the court will order that $50 million in all be returned to the class.

Both trials took place before Alameda County Superior Court Judge Robert Freedman.

The defendants in the latest trial were two officers of Global Vision Products Inc., Robert DeBenedictis and Henry Edelson -- a court stay after the company's 2007 bankruptcy filing had kept them out of the earlier one. DeBenedictis was represented by Peter Hart and Michael Collins of LeClairRyan's San Francisco and New York offices, respectively. Edelson was recently representing himself and did not appear at trial.

One of DeBenedictis' lawyers said his client was just an investor and not directly participating in the company in its early years, and that he planned to appeal.

"Once he became involved in 2004, he took every effort he possibly could to get the company back on the straight and narrow and get its advertising in compliance with the Better Business Bureau and the Food and Drug Administration," Hart said. "We think the jury looked at his position and made the leap that just because he was president, he was responsible." To bolster that thought, he noted that the jury had found in DeBenedictis' favor on allegations of conspiracy with defendants from the earlier trial.

Name plaintiffs Garrett Boyd and James Thomas claimed Avacor's three-part "hair re-growth program" was misleading in selling itself as an all-natural, clinically tested product with no side effects. Fisher, one of their lawyers, contended that Global Vision Products' advertising referred to a clinic that didn't exist, a study that was never done and success rates that had no backing. The company, having filed for bankruptcy, was not included in either trial in Thomas v. Global Vision Products, RG-03091195.

Testimony that DeBenedictis continues to sell Avacor seemed influential with the jury, Fisher said.

"We got the sense that they understood how many people had been defrauded here and that this was a widespread scheme, that this was something that [they] needed to put a stop to."

But Hart said that while DeBenedictis has an interest in a new company, Avacor, no state or federal agency is claiming that selling the hair remedy is improper.

The 2007 trial involved three principal defendants: Avacor's creator, a Nascar driver hired as its celebrity spokesman and a former doctor who appeared in ads for the product. The jury returned a verdict of just under $37 million. In his May 2008 statement of decision, Freedman increased the award to $40 million.

"The court can and does take judicial notice of the fact that enormous sums of money are spent on personal care and grooming products," Freedman wrote in that decision (.pdf). "Into this lucrative market stepped a band of hucksters, defendants, to prey on the vulnerabilities of human nature and employing a colossal array of false, deceptive and fraudulent techniques cynically collected millions of dollars from deceived California consumers."

Thanksgiving - A special time, a special story

Posted by Rob Beale on Wed, Nov 25, 2009 @ 04:36 PM

Thanksgiving is a time to be with family and friends and to cherish every moment of it.  This holiday, with all the smells from the kitchen and family coming to visit, embed some incredible memories.

Recently, I was reading about a spiritual warrior named Huston Smith. This man has trained with Zen masters in Japan, camped with aborigines in Australia and dropped peyote with Native American shamans. He didn't just study religions; he lived them.  He was also responsible for introducing the Dali Lama to the west. But this story is not about his great spiritual achievements but rather about the toughest battle of his life, losing his youngest child to cancer. 

We wanted to share this story with you because of the power and the spiritual strength that his daughter possessed in dealing with death.  

The following is an excerpt from the story:

"Nobody wants to learn from a child how to die well, but I learned it from Karen," he said. 

Smith traveled around the world to study under some of the most famous spiritual masters. But it was his daughter who became one of his greatest teachers.

"She taught me nobility of spirit," he said.

He said Karen's courage continues to "console" and "guide" him as he draws closer to his furthest shore.

He can still hear Karen's final words as she slipped away in her bed.

"I hear the ocean," she said. "I can smell the ocean now."

To read this wonderful and heartfelt story please go here

...And from all of us here at Evolution Hair Centers we wish you a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving holiday!

UK Hair Transplant Surgeon Takes Stand – “You’re Too Young For a Hair Transplant”

Posted by Rob Beale on Mon, Nov 23, 2009 @ 02:54 PM

Dr. Farjo, currently the UK’s leading hair transplant surgeon, is calling for appropriate age restrictions after seeing a disturbing trend of teenage boys wanting to undergo hair transplantation.

Dr. Farjo’s clinic receives calls from the parents of boys as young as 16 years old who desperately want to help their child restore their receding hairlines, but Dr. Farjo thinks it’s the responsibility of the professionals to better educate these families and to “just say no.”

Dr Farjo explained:”Hair loss can be quite unpredictable in its early stages, with the full extent of loss difficult to determine in men under the age of 30. Men under this age should consider taking preventative drugs such as propecia, in an effort to slow down or stop their hair loss. However, a few online sources and commercial clinics are encouraging very young men to consider surgery to restore both their follicles and self-esteem.”

He added, “Surgery may improve the hairline of very young men in the short term; however, if further hair loss occurs they could find themselves with inconsistent coverage, giving them a ‘patchy’ look.”

In recent years Evolution Hair Centers have seen an increasing number of men in their early 20's that have had transplants in their late teens prior to starting laser treatments.  This is a growing concern and a trend among young men that are receiving bad advice from so called experts.  Most of those individuals not only had the surgery but spent thousands of dollars on treatments that could've been avoided.

Evolution Hair Centers’ EXCLUSIVE Breakthroughs

Posted by William Gaunitz on Mon, Nov 16, 2009 @ 09:04 PM
To date Gaunitz has been attributed with developing 4 major breakthroughs in the hair loss treatment industry only offered by Evolution Hair Centers.

1. Liver and Kidney detoxification - Gaunitz' first clinical discovery supported a theory established by Chinese and Indian cultures over 400 year ago. When Gaunitz first began his treatment process in the US, he noticed that a particular type of client was unable to achieve success or developed hyper sensitivity due to excessive toxic load carried by the average American lifestyle. Through two combined natural methods of detoxification added to the original program, Gaunitz increased cumulative results by over 33%.

2. Light and Dark Haired cold laser treatment protocols - prior to the advent of this system blond haired individuals suffered very mild results through laser therapy because of the lack of energy delivered to the reflective light hair pigmentation. Gaunitz discovered that by varying doses of energy in higher intensities, a dramatic positive response could be generated with no additional effort by the client.

3. Alternating single daily dose topical treatments - Until Gaunitz' breakthrough, conventional Minoxidil treatments such as the well know brand Rogaine, resulted in minimal hair gains and with a 2 years maximum effectiveness life span. In 2007 Gaunitz developed two completely unique formulas that only required once daily applications that reduced the potential for six effects by 400%, increasing the life span of treatment indefinitely.

4. Elimination of micro-inflammation through use of a natural anti-microbials - until 2009 Gaunitz had noticed that a small percentage of clients had noticeable micro-inflammation that was uncontrollable without use of unsustainable and unsafe antibiotics. Through extensive testing, Gaunitz developed a completely safe and amazing effective anti-microbial treatment protocol that has boasted results to entirely new level. Gaunitz has a patented pending on his latest discovery.

Can Marijuana Cause Hair Loss?

Posted by Rob Beale on Wed, Nov 04, 2009 @ 03:59 PM

I've been answering a lot of questions lately about smoking marijuana and the effects it can have on adrogenetic alopecia.  Simply put, can marijuana cause hair loss?  

Fortunetly not, but it can aggravate such medical conditions such as alopecia areata (bald spots on the scalp). 

Smoking marijuana habitually can cause a general loss of hair through its effects on the liver, but since 2002, Evolution Hair Centers have never treated a client with hair loss directly related or steming from smoking marijuana.

Agassi Admits Mane Was A Wig

Posted by Rob Beale on Mon, Nov 02, 2009 @ 03:59 PM

LONDON (AFP) – Former tennis star Andre Agassi has admitted the lion mane-style hairstyle he sported during the 1990s was actually a wig, in extracts from his autobiography published in British newspapers Saturday.

Agassi said he wore a hairpiece held together with pins in his first Grand Slam final, the 1990 French Open final, and blamed his concerns that it would fall apart for losing the match to Andres Gomez.

Before the match he prayed “not for victory, but that my hairpiece would not fall off”, he writes in “Open”.

In previous excerpts, Agassi admitted he had used the drug crystal methamphetamine in 1997.

He said he started to wear a wig to disguise hair loss.

“Every morning I would get up and find another piece of my identity on the pillow, in the wash basin, down the plughole,” he wrote.

“I asked myself: you want to wear a toupee? On the tennis court? I answered myself; what else could I do?”

Andre Agassi in 1993.

But the wig began to disintegrate as he took a shower the night before the Paris final—“probably I used the wrong hair rinse,” Agassi writes.

He panicked and called his brother Philly into the room. Together, they managed to clamp the wig together using clips and pins.

Agassi, 39, writes: “Of course I could have played without my hairpiece, but what would all the journalists have written if they knew that all the time I was really wearing a wig?

“During the warming-up training before play I prayed. Not for victory, but that my hairpiece would not fall off.

“With each leap, I imagine it falling into the sand. I imagine millions of spectators move closer to their TV sets, their eyes widening and, in dozens of dialects and languages, ask how Andre Agassi’s hair has fallen from his head.”

It was actress Brooke Shields, who he married, who persuaded him to cut off all his remaining hair.

“She said I should shave my head,” he said. “It was like suggesting I should have all my teeth out.

“Nevertheless, I thought for a few days about it, about the agonies it caused me, the hypocrisy and lies.”

But after taking the plunge, “a stranger stood before me in the mirror and smiled,” Agassi said.

“My wig was like a chain and the ridiculously long strands in three colours like an iron ball which hung on it.”

Agassi won eight Grand Slams during his career and is one of only six men to win all four major titles.

Don't Get Hat Head! Chase Utley's Hair during the 2009 World Series

Posted by Rob Beale on Thu, Oct 29, 2009 @ 07:02 PM

What a night for Chase Utley, who set a major league record and hit a pair of home runs to help the Phillies beat the Yankees 6-1 in Game 1 of the World Series.

Pretty good for a guy supposedly nursing injuries. Utley also had a big opener in the World Series last season, homering against the Rays in Game 1.

But if you haven't seen Utley with his batting helmet off before, you might be wondering: What's up with the greasy kids stuff in his hair?

At first it looks like he has an uncontrollable sweating problem above the neck, but it's not his glands. In case you missed the reports last season, Utley uses something called LA Looks hair gel to ensure he never has "hat hair." This recently was confired by Philly fan @Aprouja, who has heard Utley say as much in a radio interview.

Ovation Hair Alternative Review Study

Posted by William Gaunitz on Tue, Sep 01, 2009 @ 08:30 PM

HairStem 360 Product System


In march of 2009, I reviewed the Ovation Hair Product Line and posted the my findings on this blog. Since then, many of you have commented on your disappointment in regard to the lack of results with the Ovation Products.

In April of this year, I set out to find a product line that could deliver consistant results for the at-home user. My tests did include DS Laboratories Revita Shampoo as well their Spectral DNC topical. Although their products did show positive results, I did however witness many scalp reactions for those people with sensitive scalps.

In response to the lack of products that could help with the wide range of at home needs and scalp conditions, I have created a new product system that was formerly by prescription only.

The new HairStem 360 Product System for Thinning Hair proves to effectively address all primary reasons for hair loss; enhancing hair quality, scalp health, width and diameter of the hair shaft, and most importantly can truly reverse hair loss.

The HairStem360 Product System for Thinning Hair is unique in many ways. For more information, go to HairStem 360 Product System page.

I would like to hear your feedback when you become a new user. I am offering this product at 15% off for those people who are want to use and review this product on our blog. We want to know how this product kit influences your hair growth.

I will be posting our initial microscopic scalp analysis photographs in an upcoming blog article for in-clinic participants of this review study. If you are interested in participating in this Review Study, simply use the promo code TRUEGROWTH when purchasing this set at our store using this link HairStem Hair Loss Product System. I thank you in advance for your participation and feedback.

Why is the Erchonia THL-1 better than the Hairmax Lasercomb?

Posted by William Gaunitz on Tue, Apr 14, 2009 @ 09:50 PM

This is a very common question. Without having intimate knowledge of exactly how laser hair therapy works, it is difficult to explain this fully. But here we go.

First of all, the Lasercomb is one diode reflected through a prism in nine rays. The Lasercomb is the only FDA cleared hair growth laser on the market. They have produced clinical evidence that their device is capable of showing some improvement over placebo in clinical trials. It took 4 clinical trials to produce this result. I have personally used the Lasercomb in early 2001. It simply was not powerful enough to do anything for me. I returned the device for a refund after 5 months.

With this being said, the laser comb is using a diffuse light principle to regrow hair. This is important. This is same type of energy that we use in-clinic but at 61 times less the strength. By using diffuse light you are using unfocused energy. This energy is weaker, but is more effective with a multitude of diodes for growing hair on most people. This would be similar to comparing a flood light to a spot light. A flood light gets weaker as the light flow outs in many directions, whereas a spot light will remain focused in a concentrated area. Beside the wavelength, this is core difference between the Lasercomb and THL-1 device. The THL is concentrated, where the Lasercomb is not.

We dig deeper:
THL-1 is a single focused line generated beam of light at 635nm and 5 milliwatts of power. This single line generated beam, because it is focused, can deliver up to 100 times more energy than a comparable diffuse light diode. This means that less treatment will produce a more quality result faster. Or in many situations, produce a result far superior to that of the Lasercomb. The THL-1 is actually so powerful that if you use it more than 6 minutes per day you can actually cause over stimulation. For more information on overstimulation, read my blog article here. Here is the blurb.

"Most commercially available handheld lasers only use 5 - 9 unfocused diffuse light diodes. This simply means that there would not be enough energy available to create a notable difference in most hair loss situations. Different hair types require different levels of energy to see results. Dark to black hair usually can only tolerate 30 diodes of 635nm (3.5-5mW) energy at 2 x per week before overstimulation. Light to blond hair can tolerate almost double that at 61 diodes of the same energy 2 x per week.
Overstimulation can occur in anyone who has received too much laser treatment for their particular situation. Overstimulation can cause a stalling of hair growth (slow growth), scalp pain, and in many cases rapid shedding of hair in the treated area. It is very important to use the correct dosage of energy for every individual in the correct intervals.
With that being said, it is also very important to get enough laser energy to ensure proper hair growth. For a diffuse light diode handheld device to really create a positive impact on the average hair loss case, the laser device would need to at least contain 15 diffuse light diodes. You must also note that not all diodes are created equal as well. You must have a quality built device to maintain adequate and sustained power supply to each diode to ensure a quality dose of energy."

Clearly overstimulation is not what we are trying to achieve. The THL should be treated like a medical device and used only as prescribed which is 4 minutes daily (2 minutes on the front of the scalp, 2 minutes on the back).

The 635 nm wavelength is important as well. All of our in-clinic devices use 635nm diodes at 5 mw and ALL of our before and after pictures on our website have been produced using this energy ( Erchonia Medical, who manufacturers the THL-1 laser, sell a 2 diode 635nm line generated unit for $16,000 for medical use only. Erchonia has more FDA approvals than any other medical device company for low level laser therapy. The PL-3000 device, practically identical to the THL-1 except for the exterior (, was the first device to be FDA approved to accelerate wound healing

Why is this important? It proves the strength of a line generated single diode device as well as its effectiveness.

What does wound healing have to do with growing hair? The main mechanism for improved hair regrowth by low level laser therapy is its ability to improve cell regeneration and reduce inflammation. Normally hair follicles that are being miniaturized due to androgenetic alopecia are suffering from massive inflammation at the follicle receptor caused by DHT. By decreasing inflammation and expediting cell regeneration, your hair follicles can recover and begin to grow normally again. The more effective the energy, the more hair you will grow. DHT must be reduced for any laser device to make a dramatic difference in your hair growth. That is why all of our programs are sold with topical and internal DHT inhibitors.

In conclusion, the THL-1 is far more effective at delivering the quality energy that is required to produce a dramatic result. The other benefit to using the THL is that you only have to use it 4 minutes per day. The Lasercomb requires 2-3 treatment at 15-30 minute per treatment to produce a result.

I hope that this was helpful. Feel free to contact me directly if you have additional questions.

Spencer Forrest X5 Laser Reviewed

Posted by William Gaunitz on Fri, Mar 06, 2009 @ 07:44 PM

March 2011 UPDATE:

Effective March 2011, Evolution Hair Centers will no longer carry the Spencer Forrest X5 Laser.

   1. Due to the failure of the Spencer Forrest company to gain a the FDA 510K market clearance after clinical trials,
   2. lack of customer service and support,
   3. and new and more effective laser to hit the USA market, I have dropped Spencer Forrest from our company.

 As of 2011, the iGrow Laser is my affordable homecare laser choice. The THL-1 in my opinion is still superior. But if you cannot spend $2000 on a THL-1 Laser, I would highly recommend the iGrow Laser Device.

I am asked to review new products occasionally by clients. This is my latest review posted below. This is my email response verbatim: 


Dear _____,

I just reviewed the website and called their main number. I spoke with a woman named Carlee (Vice President of Sales) who gave me some additional info. She said that she was going to email me the ingredients for their Cell Therapy Cream, but I have still yet to receive it.


Here is the deal. There is only one product that they claim that has an impact on the hair cycle. That is the Cell Therapy Cream. They say that the amino acids in the cream help naturally extend the life of the growth phase. There is absolutely no mention on their website of how this happens and there is only one before and after picture of the President of the company. The woman that I spoke with says that they do not claim to treat pattern hair loss. It simply gives the appearance of thick fuller hair. I think that they are marketing more towards improving the quality of the existing hair and providing healthier environment for future growth.


To be honest, I am not impressed. The only bit of research I found was in regard to Panthenol (vitamin b5) and how it will extend to life of the anagen phase of the hair. This is true. That is why there is high levels of b5 in the both the PM and PMb topicals that both you and _____are using.


I will review the ingredients of Cell Therapy Cream when it arrives. I think that this product is designed for people who have damaged hair or have thinning due to nutritional inadequacies. In my opinion, this is not going to be an improvement to either of your treatment programs.

This is an copy of an email sent to me through from an Ovation Hair Product user sent July 13th, 2009.

User from: Lemon Grove, CA 91945

Subject: Ovation Hair therapy Products
I tried this product for 3 months with no results, when I called to get my money back guarantee, they stated I needed to return the bottles back to them and that I would only received money back for the last order I placed and not all the money. I happened to have the last 2 items I order which was the Hair therapy treatment and the rinse.
I received a refund for only the last 2 products. The add does not state you should keep your bottles and return them if not satisfied. And they do not state that you will only received a refund for the last order and not all if you continue to use the product as they state for results, 3 months.
this company does not meet their advertised promises.

UPDATE January 29, 2014: Free Phone Consultation Provided

William Gaunitz trichologisto head shot  Due to the overwhelming response to this blog post, I am making this    update. Many women who have tried Ovation for Hair Loss have been left unsatisfied and in some cases the product has made them worse due to the high level of chemicals in their product.

Women's hair loss is relatively simple and be corrected with making minor adjustments to hormones naturally that will combate the hereditary influence of female pattern hair loss. I am now taking personal phone consultations at no cost to help the women who have not had success with Ovation or other products.

Simply email me at with the subject line Personal Consultation. My Hair Loss Clinics have been helping women since 2002. I am more than happy to help.

Health: Detox with Sonne's #7

Posted by Rob Beale on Mon, Jan 26, 2009 @ 12:13 PM
Here at Evolution Hair Centers, we have been using Sonne's #7 for years and through in-clinic analysis we've discovered that approximately 88% of cllients that went through the detox at the start of our hair growth program had better results at the end of the program than did the clients that did not start out with any kind of detox protocal.  

Sonne’s #7 Detoxificant, by Sonne’s Organic Foods, Inc., is an all-natural detoxification supplement derived from a rich volcanic clay known as Bentonite. Through a special process designed to isolate the detoxifying ingredient in Bentonite, Sonne’s #7 is able to absorb, or physically bind, positively charged substances in the body. According to the product website, the majority of metabolic, environmental, and chemical wastes that need eliminated from the body are indeed positively charged. The active ingredient in Sonne’s #7 is not digested, and so it is excreted from the body, along with the bound toxins. #7 Detoxificant is a part of Sonne’s 7 Day Cleansing Program Kit.
Ingredients At A Glance
Sonne’s #7 Detoxificant contains Bentonite, the mineral-rich volcanic clay mentioned above. However, through a refining process that removes mica, dirt, and impurities, Bentonite is reduced to its active detoxifying ingredient, Montmorillonite. This refining process is “exclusive and secret,” according to the product website. The description simply indicates that, when it’s all said and done, the purified Montmorillonite is put in a liquid colloidal-gel state, sterilized, and subjected to lab tests that ensure it is suitable for consumption. As an indication of the absorptive powers of Bentonite/Montmorillonite, Sonne’s only packages their #7 Detoxificant in glass bottles, as the Montmorillonite can leach petrochemicals from plastic bottles. Consumers ought to be wary of any other Bentonite detoxification products that are packaged in plastic.

Hair Health: Scalp Cleanse

Posted by Rob Beale on Thu, Dec 11, 2008 @ 02:57 PM

In a recent article for Mens Health magazine, one of the best grooming tips for your hair is utilizing your Shampoo to cleanse your scalp.

"Scrubbing the head's epidermis prevents flakes, dryness, redness, and itching by keeping pores clean and buildup from accumulating. Your job: to finesse the shampoo as close as possible to the scale like base of the hair shaft, using your fingertips to gently massage the scalp in a circular motion."

I will be writing more on this subject in the coming weeks as well as recommending shampoos and therapys so stay tuned...

Health: 9 Must Read Books on Eating Well, Nutrition for your Hair

Posted by Rob Beale on Wed, Dec 10, 2008 @ 05:50 PM

In an Article to TreeHugger, Jeff Nield provides great insight on 9 books that are essential on how food effects our bodies. 

Nield relays a collection of interesting anecdotes, the best of which reads as follows:

"A friend of mine was so moved by The Omnivore's Dilemma that he quit his university teaching position and became an organic mixed vegetable farmer, along with his family."'m not sure I'd go that far but a few of these books have certainly had an impact on how eating the right balanced diet can decrease the amount of toxins in the body. 

Nutrition plays a huge role in hair growth, the healthier you are the more hair you will grow back due to the elimination of free radicals and toxins in the body.

Why are you losing hair?

Posted by William Gaunitz on Fri, Dec 05, 2008 @ 02:14 PM

This is a very common question. Many people wonder, "Why am I losing hair when I have no family history of hair loss." Many factors can accelerate hair loss, but only a few are actually the root cause.

Andro-genetic-alopecia, male or female pattern loss, is the primary reason for human hair loss of the scalp. If you are losing hair in a genetic pattern, refer to the Norwood scale, you have genetic baldness. This condition does not come exclusively from any one side of the family. The old wives tale of inheriting hair loss from your mother’s father is false. Pattern hair loss can skip a generation and in some cases many generations. Women can inherit it from their fathers and men from their mothers.

Stress and medications can aggravate and accelerate pattern hair loss. People feel that stress may be the root cause, but in most circumstances it simply speeds pattern hair loss. Lipitor is one drug that seems to have a dramatic hair loss accelerating effect. Hair loss is not one of the core side effects but in my experience it can seriously exacerbate pattern loss.

Telogen Effluviumis the most common stress related root cause of hair loss. Telogen Effluvium usually occurs 3-4 months after a stressful event (car accident, divorce, surgery, etc.). Stress is determined by the individual, not by the situation. What is stressful to some is not to another. You may have just had a tough month at work and that was enough to trigger an effluvium.

Telogen Effluvium causes a rapid shedding of hair through the vertex (middle) of the scalp from the frontal hair line to the nape of the neck. People who are experiencing this, may lose as much as 30% of their hair in 3-6 months. If you are exclusively experiencing Telogen Effluvium, your hair will completely grow back in nine months to one year. If you have any pattern hair loss in your family, the hair lost from the Effluvium shed will not grow back. The hair loss will simply slow down or stop completely. Telogen Effluvium complicated by pattern hair loss must be treated for your hair to grow to back naturally.

How the Economy is changing the Hair Loss Treatment Industry

Posted by William Gaunitz on Sun, Nov 16, 2008 @ 04:19 PM

The state of economy is on the tip of everyone’s tongue now days.  You can’t turn on the news or go to work without hearing more doom and gloom in regard to the down fall of the US Economy.

Obviously every American is being affected. Most US businesses are making changes or downsizing due to the current situation. Yet, as these changes occur, there is glimmering ray of hope for one small business with a unique process. It seems for them the economy is actually helping their sales, drawing clients away from their higher priced surgical competition.

Gaunitz Hair Growth Centers is an Arizona based hair loss treatment company who is pioneering a unique new laser program. The company, named after William Gaunitz the founder and hair loss expert, has developed a combination of proven hair loss treatments that has a consistent track record of naturally stimulating new hair growth. Using new FDA approved technology from Europe in a nine month program, Gaunitz Hair Growth Centers is able to revitalize and regrow the shrinking hair follicles caused by male and female pattern baldness. The company has been performing this treatment for six years and has received tremendous attention from the media. Despite all of this, this new process has still not hit the main stream.

To date, the most popular form of hair restoration comes from a surgical procedure called Hair Transplantation. Although hair transplantation is painful and potentially disfiguring (leaving that “doll hair” look), it is considered the only way to produce dramatic balding coverage by the popular medical consensus.  This surgical process is not only risky, but it is also expensive. The average hair transplantation surgery costs the consumer between $6,000 and $15,000 depending on the severity of the individual’s hair loss. This procedure does actually stop hair loss either, but simply covers the balding area with transplanted hair from the back of the scalp.  As time goes by, hair transplant clients will have to go back for additional procedures as the hair around the transplant continues to fall out.

Due to the current state of affairs, hair loss suffers are doing more research then ever into more affordable yet dramatically effective treatment options. This has led many more people to discover Gaunitz Hair Growth Centers and their promising new laser hair growth program.  This year alone the company’s Paradise Valley location has treated over 200 new clients. Each one of these individuals had a choice of comprehensive treatment programs ranging in price from $2600 to $4995. The average client result was equivalent to one session of hair transplants with less cost, no risk, and no pain.

Gaunitz Hair Growth Centers’ program has become so popular that the company opened a second location in North Scottsdale in early September. The official Grand Opening is slated for November 18th, 2008. Sponsored by the Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce, the North Scottsdale clinic is opening with great fan fare.

Gaunitz Hair Growth Centers and its sister company Gaunitz Hair Sciences will bring this new laser hair loss treatment to more and more communities in 2009 through its franchise and affiliate programs.

In a negative economy the fastest way towards recovery is by looking for the positive. I hope that Gaunitz Hair Growth Centers and companies like them will lead the way to rebuilding our nation’s economy and providing sound jobs in the 21st century.

Green Tea for Hair Loss?

Posted by William Gaunitz on Thu, Nov 13, 2008 @ 01:08 AM
"Green tea hair loss:” these are four words that seem incongruous when placed together; but apparently, scientists are making a connection between drinking or ingesting green tea products and the slowing down of the hair loss process. It should be noted here that there are no claims that green tea will replace all other products for hair loss treatment. This is not a one-shot, miracle cure for the balding scalp or anything of that kind. However, there are recent findings that indicate that consuming enough green tea on a daily basis will help slow down the oxidation process, which may be responsible for the onset of thinning hair.

Make no mistake about it: hair loss may be brought on by a number of things, including heredity, the onset of diseases, vitamin deficiency, strong medical treatments like chemotherapy, too much hair styling, etc. The person’s overall health and present environmental conditions also affect hair growth, or the lack of. However, the most common reason for hair loss is simply aging. As we grow older and reach that certain milestone in our life, our cells do not regenerate enough to afford us that healthy head of hair we had when we were younger. In fact, this is a problematic area concerning our entire physique. When we age, we tend to develop more wrinkles; we tend to develop more bodily aches; we tend to get sick easier.Good question. The answer lies in the healthful benefits now being discovered with the regular intake of green tea, particularly its ability to raise antioxidant compounds in the blood. Antioxidants are actually protein compounds that help slow down the oxidation process (hence, the name.) Oxidation brings about cell decay, which is necessary for human existence. Old cells must “die” in order for new cells to develop. When we were younger and assumingly at the peak of our health; our cells decay and regenerate almost at the same. This is the reason why we hardly notice or pay them any heed whatsoever.

However, as we grow older, our cell regeneration abilities become slower. Consequently, this shift in balance means that our cells decay at a faster rate. This causes our skins to become more wrinkled or less elastic; our joints more prone to creaking and aches; and our hair to lose both its natural color and more of them end up on the floor than on our heads. We all know the fact that humans shed about 100 hairs a day, right? Unfortunately, when we grow older, our bodies can no longer regenerate enough new cells to compensate for the hair loss.

There are potent compounds found in green tea that contain high levels of antioxidants. These antioxidants are important tools in slowing down cell decay, letting new cells play catch-up by regenerating into new ones. This means that by consuming enough green tea on a daily basis, the process of hair thinning may be slowed down somewhat. Once it does, then new hairs can grow back.

Hair Loss And Grey Hair Prevention With A Healthy Diet

Posted by William Gaunitz on Thu, Nov 13, 2008 @ 12:18 AM

If you knew that a healthy diet could prevent grey hair, would you change your eating habits? We keep being told that lifestyle and food intake are key factors in staying healthy and looking younger, but many of us just buy the food we like without analysing the contents to make sure we are consuming the right balance of vitamins and minerals. Greying hair often begins at age 35, and continues as we get older. By the age of 50, around half of the population has significant loss of colour.

Male baldness is a common problem and can start in the late twenties. The first stage is a receding hairline, then thinning on top of the head and the temples. Women can also suffer hair loss or thinning hair as they get older, or during pregnancy. Other causes may be anemia and stress, but whatever the cause, the results can be distressing and lead to a loss of self confidence.

Aside from hereditary factors, it is the quality of the body's blood which affects the thickness and colour of hair. So we should look at what we can do to maintain healthy blood, which will both benefit our health, and also help to maintain our looks.

Too much salt can damage the blood and raise your blood pressure, so avoid adding extra salt when cooking or at the dinner table. Crisps, snacks and processed foods generally contain high levels of salt. The guideline daily amount for salt is only 6g, so do look at labels on packaging to ensure you do not exceed this safe level.

The kidneys act as a filter to remove waste products from the blood, and also produce hormones which control blood pressure. Blood quality can be maintained by eating foods containing Iron, Folic acid, vitamins B12 and C. Seaweed, vegetables, grains, seeds (especially sunflower and pumpkin), and nuts are naturally rich in these elements, and you can also take vitamin supplements.

If you do go gray prematurely and decide to use a colour, it is best to choose one closest to your original shade, as this will suit your skin tone and look the most natural. By the age of 60, many women prefer to let nature take its course, revealing a full head of silver or white. This can look extremely glamorous with a good cut to suit the shape of the face, and removes the need to worry about frequent trips to the salon to touch up those roots!
