If you don't get anything from this, it's time to throw in the towel for good...
-A simple guide to reclaiming your lost hair-
If you're reading this you're probably dealing with hair loss.
In fact, it probably controls a majority of your daily thoughts and decisions...
"Crap, why does my hairline seem to be receding faster and faster?"
(Is this you?)
Well - you're in luck today.
You're going to learn a boatload about how you can treat your hair loss.
But before we continue, here's a bit of background info about me:
I’ve spent over 4 years researching the causes of hair loss and how to reverse them (I could literally teach a university program about hair loss).
And in that time ONE thing has become more and more obvious…
Your scalp health is not only THE most important factor for hair growth - it’s actually one of the quickest and easiest factors to change.
Look, if your scalp is healthy your hair will UNDOUBTEDLY be thick, healthy, and plentiful.
No question about that.
That is why I’ve put together this very concise guide to scalp health.
By the time you finish reading this guide, you'll know all about growing back the hair you’ve lost.
That is, getting thick, healthy hair – stopping and reversing pattern baldness forever!
There are only 4 steps in this guide.
But these 4 steps are going to change your hair forever (if you follow them properly).
I'm going to keep this as simple as possible, because I know that once you do these simple steps and start getting RESULTS you’ll have the motivation to work on all the smaller details...
These 4 Secrets to Scalp Health will put you immediately into the fast track to growing back your lost hair.
You'll be light years ahead of your friends that are trying the newest creams, sprays, or whatever pharmaceutical companies are pumping out these days...
And one more thing -
The secrets that I will reveal in this guide are all backed up by clinical studies (which will be referenced throughout).
It's one thing to have anecdotal experience, but with the concrete scientific proof I'm about to show you, you'll be seeing results that can replicated on a massive scale.
This is important because you can feel confident that these secrets truly work, and you can use them knowing that they will actually regrow your hair.
Let's get started.
‘Hair loss shampoos’ are sold everywhere and are very popular.
However, I’m sorry to say that basically they don’t work.
Starting from today I recommend you stop using any kind of shampoo or conditioner on your hair.
Don’t panic! You will still be able to wash your hair.
You'll just be using one simple and natural ingredient:
Apple cider vinegar!
Apple cider vinegar (raw & organic ideally) is the only thing that I recommend you ‘wash’ your hair with.
(As you’ll find out later, there are other ingredients you should be using to ‘rinse’ your hair with!)
The reason I recommend apple cider vinegar is because it gently cleans the hairs and scalps WITHOUT stripping away natural and important oils that protect the hairs.
Look, all chemical shampoos do is:
- Strip away natural oils
- Damage the scalp
- Deposit chemicals into the skin
- Damage the long term health of the scalp
Yes, you can throw away your shampoo right about now unless you want to continue losing hair.
One of the biggest reasons we use apple cider vinegar is because it absorbs transdermally (through the skin) where it then helps to dissolve calcium deposits in the scalp.
Reducing scalp calcification (deposits of calcium in the scalp) is extremely important for regrowing hair because the calcification makes it basically impossible to re-establish blood supply to the hair follicles.
And when it comes to regrowing lost hair, blood supply is the ‘golden pillar.’ It is the thing that matters most.
More blood supply = more hair.
It’s as simple as that!
You’ll find out more about blood supply in each of the next 3 secrets.
It’s so important that it appears in ALL of the secrets.
Now you know that using any kind of shampoo is NOT recommended.
Instead you’ll begin using apple cider vinegar once, or maximum twice per week.
Here’s how I recommend you use it (time to take notes!).
1. Wet your hair under the shower.
2. Take your bottle of ACV and pour some into one cupped hand (just enough to fit in your cupped hand)
3. Apply that liquid to your hair and massage it in for ten seconds.
4. Depending on how much hair you have, you may want to add another cupped handful.
I personally do 2.
5. Next, rinse under running water for 1-2 seconds so that the ACV is diluted into your hair.
6. Massage again for ten seconds so that the ACV comes into contact with the scalp.
7. Then thoroughly rinse out under the shower.
Here are a few other things you should keep in mind:
Earlier I mentioned that ACV is the only thing you should use to ‘wash’ your hair, but there are other things you can use to ‘rinse’ your hair with.
‘Rinsers’ are used to apply natural ingredients to the scalp without stripping away protective oils.
Washing too much leaves the hair and scalp dry and vulnerable.
We know from clinical studies there are natural extracts and oils that are proven to cause hair growth, and we can 'rinse' our hair with these without 'washing' it.
It involves only 3 steps:
Step 1: Dilute the hair rinse with shower water
Step 2: Apply diluted mixture to wet hair & massage in
Step 3: Rinse out the mixture with cool shower water
Here are the natural ingredients I recommend you use that have extremely useful properties for healthy hair:
After months of rigorous testing we're making our best shampoo formula available to the public.
Now you can use the exact shampoo I have tested and highly recommend.
It's called the Caffeine Shampoo and it uses apple cider vinegar in a unique form, along with many other natural ingredients which have proven properties.
Find out more about our new shampoo below:
Topical (applied to the skin) applications have been proven to stimulate hair growth when applied to the scalp.
There are 3 main ways that they can do this:
The most common example of a topical application for thinning, receding hair is minoxidil.
It is by far the most popular hair loss treatment in the world.
Minoxidil (also known by brand names such as Rogaine, Regaine (in the UK) and Kirkland) works because it is a vasodilator (which means it dilates blood capillaries in the scalp causing increased blood flow to the hair follicles).
Although minoxidil can help regrow hair, it also has some VERY undesirable side effects.
These commonly include:
Because of these side-effects, I really don’t recommend using minoxidil.
Even if you don't mind the side-effects, there's no need to take the risk since there is a natural (and little known) alternative to minoxidil that has proven to be 50% MORE effective than minoxidil after only 4 weeks.
It also works in the same way – as a vasodilator.
Yet it has none of the side-effects.
What is this amazing alternative?
Peppermint essential oil.
This study in 2014 from Keimyung University in Korea showed how effective PEO is at inducing hair growth compared to side-effect ridden minoxidil.
You can see from the graphs above how much more effectively PEO works than Minoxidil.
And in the picture below you can see the how effective it was in treating hair loss in rats.
Point 2 of effective topical applications is that they topically block DHT.
Most people who have done even a small amount of research into pattern baldness know that DHT is a hormone that binds to the hair follicle (in the presence of low oxygen) causing the follicle to ‘miniaturize’ and die.
DHT is converted from testosterone by an enzyme in the body called type-2 5-alpha reductase (no need to remember all these science-y details though).
The important point here is that by inhibiting this enzyme we can ‘block’ DHT and stop hair follicle miniaturization.
Finasteride (also known by its brand name Propecia) is the second most popular hair loss treatment in the world.
It also works by inhibiting this enzyme (5-alpha-reductase) and thereby ‘blocking DHT’.
However, finasteride is taken orally (as a daily pill) so it blocks DHT throughout the body (not just locally in the scalp).
This can cause some HORRIBLE side-effects.
Most common side effects of finasteride are related to sex and include:
If you're anything like me then even the thought of messing with the sexual system in your body is terrifying.
Some people have even reported PERMANENT sexual side effects.
Luckily, we don’t need to take finasteride and risk the undesirable side effects because we can:
In fact, there is a natural substance that has been clinically proven to be more effective than finasteride at inhibiting the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase…
This substance is rosemary oil extract, and we can apply it topically, direct to the scalp to block DHT exactly where it matters most.
In a study in 2013 at Kinki University Japan rosemary oil inhibited 5-alpha-reductase by 94.6% compared to 81.9% for finasteride.
The third point of a topical application is to reduce calcification of the scalp.
Although you’ll remember that apple cider vinegar can do this, there is a natural substance that is even better at removing calcium deposits than ACV.
That substance is magnesium chloride.
Magnesium chloride is a naturally occurring substance that is found in…
Magnesium oil can be applied topically and absorbed through the scalp where it IMMEDIATELY starts DISSOLVING the calcium deposits in the scalp.
This decalcification of the blood capillaries feeding the hair follicles results in more blood flow and therefore more oxygen and nutrition.
For these reasons we decided to create our own mixture that would bring together all the hair growth properties of these substances into one miracle mixture.
The result is our Scalp Elixir, which you can find out more below:
You’ll remember that earlier I said that blood flow is the 'golden pillar' of hair regrowth.
Scalp Secret 3 shows this theory to be true because we'll see how effective a dermaroller is at increasing hair growth.
Firstly, a dermaroller is handheld device with a roller containing hundreds of tiny metal pins.
It looks like this (you might have seen or used one for your face):
The pins penetrate the top layer of the skin, damaging it just enough to trigger the body to repair the wound by increasing blood supply to the area.
This study in 2013 published in the International Journal of Trichology showed that using a dermaroller along with minoxidil increases hair growth by 30% over minoxidil alone.
As you can see from the graph above, although the minoxidil was still effective, the combination of minoxidil and dermaroller was massively more so.
When the participants were evaluated by the research team the dermaroller group posted significantly better results.
And patients were also asked to self-assess their hair growth at the end of the experiment.
Again, the dermaroller group posted much better results.
Of course, by now you know that there are natural alternatives to minoxidil which you should be using instead.
The point is that the dermaroller significantly increases the effectiveness of the topical application by 4-5X by mechanically stimulating blood flow to the exact area where we need it for hair follicle growth.
In addition to using a dermaroller, you can also use ‘cream’ that is applied just after using the dermaroller.
In this case we use a different mixture than the topical application because the wound from dermarolling stings when it comes in contact with the topical application.
This ‘dermaroller cream’ is a special formulation that combines with the dermaroller and is maximized in its effectiveness by using the short healing window to penetrate deeper into the scalp.
The dermaroller cream consists of:
What's important is that this cream can be applied immediately after using the dermaroller WITHOUT stinging.
It then penetrates deeper into the dermal layer, giving all of the substances of the cream maximum effectiveness.
We now have developed something even better than a dermaroller...
It's called an adjustable dermastamp.
This is much better because the size of the needle can be easily adjusted to the perfect length that you need.

Scalp Secret number 4 could be considered the MOST POWERFUL out of all the 4 secrets.
It works in much the same way as the others – by utilizing the ‘golden pillar’ of hair growth - increased blood flow.
This secret is to use massages and exercises to directly increase blood flow to the scalp and in turn the hair follicles as well.
In 2012 The University of Hong Kong began a study to see if it was possible to regrow hair lost from genetic alopecia using an unusual form of Chinese massage.
The study lasted for 300 days and the results were published in the prestigious Journal of Clinical & Experimental Dermatology Research.
Here's the paper...
