FAQ

Vigro® is an easy to use 3-step system. The following application system should be adhered to for optimum effectiveness.

Initial phase:

Commence by using 5-7 times a week until there is a noticeable decrease in hair loss or thinning hair (usually around 8-12 weeks)

Step 1: Use the Vigro® Bio-Shampoo (or Vigro® Anti-Dandruff Bio-Shampoo) daily
Step 2: Apply the Vigro® Bio-Tonic or Vigro® Intensive Bio-Tonic or Vigro® Bio-Activator Cream and do not wash off until the next wash. If required, apply the Vigro® Bio-Conditioner Leave-on Conditioner and style hair as usual.
Step 3: Take 1 Vigro® Bio-Capsule or 2 Vigro® Plus Bio-Capsules daily.
Adhere to this phase until there is a noticeable decrease in thinning and hair loss. You can then move onto the Maintenance Phase. If it is not practical to wash your hair daily, endeavour to use the Vigro® system as often as possible and ideally not less than 3 times a week.

Continue with Step 1 and Step 2, 3-4 times a week, and continue taking 1 Vigro® Bio-Capsule or 2 Vigro® Plus Bio-Capsules daily.
See detailed directions on the specific product. Efficacy of support may vary between users. The Vigro 3 Step System is not intended for hereditary or genetic hair loss.

Follicusan™ is the active ingredient shown to assist the scalp in counteracting abnormal non-hereditary hairloss by reactivating the hair cell. Studies have shown Follicusan™ to be effective in stopping the progression of hair loss as a result of behavioural factors.

You should have a general idea of how much hair usually remains behind in your comb, shower or pillow after sleeping. When you can clearly see there is more than the usual daily amount, it may be an indication of excessive hair loss. Another indication would be to tug on your hair and it falls out easily. Thinning hair can also be identified when there is less hair to clip or tie back than before. For a diagnosis, consult a hair care professional / medical practitioner.

One needs to assess the history of hair loss on both sides of your family. If there is a family history of balding and no behavioural factors (stress, dietary deficiencies, illness, medication) are at play, the cause is probably genetic coding (hereditary hair loss). If behavioural factors are prevalent and hereditary hair loss doesn’t exist in your family, the hair loss is probably due to behavioural factors. If hair loss is hereditary the Vigro® 3 Step System will not be effective. Consult a medical practitioner for a diagnosis.

No. Vigro® is specifically formulated to assist the scalp to stop the progression of hair loss and thinning hair associated with behavioral factors such as dietary deficiencies caused by stress, illness, and medication. There are products that have been specifically developed for hereditary hair loss. The advice of a medical practitioner or pharmacist should be sought in this regard.

Rehabilitating impaired hair functioning is a lengthy process and will normally take a minimum of 3 to 4 months. It is imperative that the user bears this in mind and continues to adhere to the Vigro® 3 Step System in the initial stages when no results may be visible. It is important to remember that the average hair grows only 1cm per month, so even when hair growth is reactivated, it will be some time before the new hairs gain in length sufficiently to contribute to volume and become noticeable. Efficacy of support may vary between users.

The sooner you start using Vigro® 3 Step System, once hair loss or thinning hair has been identified, the quicker the results will be. However, Vigro® 3 Step System has been known to be effective in cases where hair loss has been left unchecked for many years. As long as the hair root is still intact, it is possible to reactivate hair growth. Vigro® is not indicated for hereditary or genetic hair loss.

Yes. When the hair growth cycle is imbalanced by behavioural factors (stress, dietary deficiencies, illness, medication) it generally manifests as thinning, “see-through” hair. The non-hereditary or behavioral causes in both men and women are however the same, and so is the solution. Note that the Vigro® 3 Step System is not effective against hereditary or genetic hair loss.

Yes – but it must be a leave-in conditioner (i.e. it must not be washed off), and should be applied after the Vigro® Bio-Tonic. Vigro® Bio-Conditioner Leave-on Conditioner is recommended as a leave-in conditioner to be applied after application of the Vigro® Bio-Tonic to promote thicker hair, detangle and to nourish your hair.

It is imperative to first ‘strip’ your hair of grime, grease and dirt. This will allow the Follicusan™ (the active ingredient in Vigro Bio-Tonic), as part of Step 2, to penetrate the hair shaft and commence the regeneration of hair growth process.

Vigro® Intensive Bio-Tonic has a higher level of the active ingredient Follicusan™ and should be used when there is excessive hair loss. It is also advisable to ‘kick start’ your Vigro® 3 Step System with the Vigro® Intensive Bio-Tonic and then revert after a month or two to the Vigro® Bio-Tonic. Both Bio-Tonic variants are suitable for normal to oily hair whilst the Vigro® Bio-Activator is a cream and is ideal for ethnic hair, which has been exposed to braiding, relaxing or perming.
