Frequently Asked Questions
Does this stuff really work?
From our founder– "I wouldn’t have invested close to a million dollars of my own money and use the exact same formulas and products every day if I didn't believe exceedingly, YES. I heard a great quote from Warren Buffet on success. He said, “Never sell anything that you wouldn’t buy yourself”. I use the ARB Shampoo+ with two SM Brushes every morning when I shower, and the Adegen ARB Topical Solution—15 every night before I go to bed. I am a product of the product. I hope that answers your question. If you are not 100% convinced Adegen is the right solution for you, I highly suggest that you do NOT buy our products and keep doing your research. If you don’t have a strong belief, you will not put forth the required effort to consistently use the products which is necessary to have the best results. I did not start Adegen to try to convince you to buy our products. I started Adegen first and foremost to serve and to provide you with the best and most effective hair loss solution ever created".
Is Adegen safe?
The next and most important question you should ask is, “is it safe?”. There are many products marketed as “natural” or “home-made” remedies implying that anything scientifically formulated is bad. But what you need to understand is that literally everything on earth is a combination of molecules from the periodic table. Everything when you look closely enough under powerful magnification are all “natural”.
Let’s take minoxidil for instance. This is the only ingredient considered an API (active pharmaceutical ingredient) in our product line. Minoxidil is the most widely used and tested hair growth ingredient in existence. Millions of men and women have used minoxidil.
Unfortunately, minoxidil doesn’t help with what’s causing the restriction of blood flow that is actually at the cause of hair loss, but it does have synergistic benefits with the other non-api ingredients in the ARB Topical Solution formula.
Large scale clinical studies have shown that 5% minoxidil solution has only 1.2ng/mL of minoxidil in the serum (aka how much goes into your bloodstream). Minoxidil has to have a serum concentration greater than 20 ng/mL to have any systemic effect (side effects outside of the topically applied area). A ng (nanogram) is one-billionth of a gram.
Therefore, there is more than a 16x times safety margin for the ARB Topical Solution–5, and a 5x times safety margin for the ARB Topical Solution–15 before it has any systemic side effects whatsoever.
Nonetheless, we are legally not allowed to offer any medical advice and always recommend you speak to your doctor or health care professional.
*As noted on the label, women who are pregnant or nursing are not advised to use anything containing minoxidil. The shampoo and brush and roller have no counter indications for pregnant or nursing however.
What is Adegen?
Adegen, pronounced /ad•ah•gin/, is an abstract name inspired by the anagen phase (growth phase) of the hair cycle. Adegen's root etymology come together to mean ‘adding—growth’. Our team consists of over 50+ of the most brilliant minds in medicine, research, pharmacy, chemistry, and manufacturing from all around the world. Our company is 100% self-funded with $0 of accepted investment money or venture capital. What does this mean for you? It means we can 100% focus on results for our customers rather than pleasing shareholders. Results or nothing.
Where do I start?
This is a common question and we suggest you read the article 3 step system to completely stop and reverse hair loss. It goes into depth on the foundation of an effective hair loss regimen and where to start. If you still have questions you and finances allow, the best hair loss system ever created and the exact same products that our founder uses himself is Adegen ARB™️ Kit No.2.
What makes Adegen different?
This is probably one of the most important questions you can ask. Unfortunately, you cannot believe everything you hear. Especially in the hair loss industry. There are so many products that make big promises and fail to deliver results. So I think it’s best for you to be extremely hesitant and do your due diligence and research on any company or product. Adegen’s existence is a direct result of the dishonesty in the hair loss industry. Like you, John spent countless hours and dollars falling for many of the same empty promises that still abound today. And then after spending hundreds of thousands of his own dollars and traveling around the world to solve his own hair loss problem, he found a real solution to hair loss and discovered huge roadblocks that were keeping this technology that changed his life from the public. He has dedicated the last 8 years of his life to making this same solution available to others in hopes their life will improve in the same way.
How often do I use the ARB Shampoo+ SM Brush?
You should use the shampoo every time you shower or wash your hair. There is a misconception that going days without washing your hair is beneficial for hair growth or the prevention of hair loss. This is completely false and the reverse is actually true.
How do I apply the ARB Topical Solution–5/15?
Because Rogaine was initially FDA approved at 5% and 1mL per day, that has been the same guidelines that every other topical solution containing minoxidil has to follow to comply with the FDA. Unfortunately, depending on your area of hair loss, 1mL may not be enough to cover the hair loss area. You should apply the liquid topical directly to the scalp (not your hair) gently squeezing the dropper bulb as you move it around the area. Then use 1 finger to gently rub it into the scalp. Our founder uses 2-3 droppers of the ARB Topical Solution per night. Also, make sure you do not put it on your scalp and then lay immediately down to bed taking the solution off of your head and onto your pillow. You can use a rolled towel or neck pillow if you are going to apply immediately before bed. Or if you wait 30 minutes before bed it will be dry enough not to worry.
How often do I apply the arb topical solution?
Once per day in the evening is what’s common and recommended.
How much topical do I use?
This was answered in the above question, “How do I apply the ARB Topical Solution–5/15?”.
How long does a bottle of Adegen ARB Topical and ARB Shampoo+ last?
Obviously this depends on use, but on average each bottle should last around one month. Some can stretch it to last two or even three months depending on your level of hair loss and the length of hair you have in regards to the shampoo. If you are serious about hair loss, which we obviously are, we recommend you use it regularly and do not try to conserve the products if you want the best results.
How long does the 10X roller last?
This again will vary depending on how careful you are with taking care of it and washing it after each use. With average use the roller should last 2-3 months. When you feel the needles start to dull or if you bend any of the needles you need to replace it. Always store the roller in it’s protective case with the plastic cover protecting the roller head. You should soak the roller in alcohol for 15 minutes after each to disinfect and never share your roller with anyone else ever.
How do I use the 10X roller with the topical solution?
First you want to gently roll over the thinning and hair loss area 5-10 times. This should not be painful or cause any bleeding. If you experience bleeding you are pressing too hard. The roller is making microscopic channels in your scalp which does not require much pressure. After rolling, then immediately apply the ARB Topical Solution over the entire area so there is a thin layer covering the hair loss area.
How often should I use the 10X Roller?
We recommend you use the roller every three days for hair regrowth (example: on Monday, off Tuesday, off Wednesday, on Thursday) and once per week for maintenance.
Will the Adegen ARB Topical Solution stop frontal hair loss around the hairline and temples?
Yes. Hair loss around the hairline and temples is from the same cause as hair loss around the crown. Adegen ARB is treating the actual cause of hair loss at the hair follicle and if you look at the before and after pictures you will see many examples of restored hair loss around the temples and hair lines.
What’s the difference between Adegen ARB™️ Topical Solution–15 and Adegen ARB™️ Topical Solution–5?
They share the same ingredient profile but Adegen ARB™️ Topical Solution–15 is triple the strength of ARB™️ Topical Solution–5. We recommend you starting with Adegen ARB™️ Topical Solution–5 for three months because most likely that will completely and effectively stop and reverse your hair loss. Why three months? Because the anagen (growth) phase of the hair cycle is 90–100 days and that will give you sufficient time to see full results. If your hair loss is severe and you want the absolute strongest, safest and most powerful hair loss solution available on the market Adegen ARB™️ Topical Solution–15 is what you’re looking for.
Does Adegen ship internationally?
Yes. We are currently shipping internationally. If your country is available at checkout, we can ship to you.
Will I have to continue using these products after I stop hair loss and my hair is restored?
This is another common question. The answer is if you’re experiencing hair loss or thinning hair it’s because your hair follicles are being restricted from blood flow. So if you use Adegen and have great results by blocking the cause of hair loss and then you stop the treatment all together, you will eventually go back to your previous state. Consider taking care of your hair part of your normal routine similarly to brushing your teeth. If you stop brushing your teeth you will have dental problems. The same is true for any health care regimen.
Can I use Adegen if I’ve had a hair transplant?
Absolutely and especially if you don’t want to need another hair transplant in the future. The problem with a hair transplant is that you are taking hair from one part of the scalp and moving it to another, but you are doing nothing to stop the actual cause of hair loss. Hair transplants have come a long way in terms of technology and results, but they are still limited to the number of donor hair follicles and they are not stopping the cause of hair loss, meaning you will continually need more surgeries as your hair loss progresses. Using Adegen ARB after a hair transplant is the best thing you can do to never have to have another hair transplant surgery in the future. If you have had a recent hair transplant you can use the ARB Topical Solution and Shampoo as soon as you're permitted to use a topical solution or shampoo, but wait 6 weeks before using the SM Brush or 10X roller.
When will your sold out products be back in stock?
Like we mentioned before we have not accepted any venture capital or investment money because we do not want to sacrifice on the quality of our products. Our only focus is making the absolute best hair loss solutions in the world. Therefore, we do have limited quantities at the moment, but if we are sold out of something they should be back in stock within 2-3 weeks, so check back or sign up for notifications when we are back in stock.
How long does it take to get results?
The first application of the Adegen ARB Topical Solution or ARB Shampoo+ SM Brush you are reversing the causes of hair loss immediately. However, this is happening at the hair follicle and not visible to the eye. You should start to see a visible difference at 30-45 days and you will see even greater results at the 90 day mark. The anagen (growth) phase of the hair cycle is 90-100 days, so it does take time for the hair to grow, but change is happening immediately. It is extremely important to be consistent with the protocol if you want the best results. We can give you the most powerful and effective hair loss solution ever created but you need to trust the process and be consistent using the products and you will be glad that you did. We can't wait to hear about your success. Please take "before" pictures in good lighting to track your results.
Will Adegen help regrow hair that has been lost for over 20+ years?
Unlike most “hair loss” companies that over promise and under deliver, Adegen aims to do the exact opposite. If you have read Hair Loss Secrets, get a FREE copy here, you now understand that blood flow restriction is the real cause of hair loss. This restriction is literally starving the hair follicle from the oxygen and nutrients that it needs to not only produce healthy hair, but to survive. The follicle starts producing thinner hair because it cannot function at full capacity and eventually, just like a heart attack (myocardial infarction) where the heart muscle dies, the hair follicle will eventually die if the blockage isn’t reversed in time. So if you're someone older that has been completely bald for 20+ years and your scalp is shiny and there is no hair at all, there is nothing you can do to restore that hair follicle. You would then need a hair transplant unfortunately. But if you still have hair in the general area, even very fine hair, Adegen will work to restore the hair follicle and hair loss area to health. If you send a picture to [email protected] we'll be able to give you a personal suggestion.
Our goal is to not only offer the most effective hair loss solution available but be completely transparent as well.
