Is my Hair Loss the Alopecia Areata type?
There are many factors in the genesis of Alopecia disease.

For Alopecia Areata hairloss, the best starter pack is the Combination package No 2, the package includes 3 units of the Calosol 4H solution , two units of the Calosol W&G shampoo and one unit of the Calosol Recovery Ointment, will last approx. three months, this is enough time to slow down the hairloss and notice signs of initial regrowth. The CP No 2 is guaranteed to control excessive hair loss due to Alopecia Areata within 3-4 weeks of use.

For Diffuse type of hairloss, choose the Calosol 4H Spray with the Calosol Shampoo.
For thinning eyebrows choose the Calosol Recovery Ointment. Add the Calosol Shampoo as a preventative step, why wait for the hairloss to occur?
How does Calosol 4H solution work?
Hair follicles are extremely robust and capable of taking a lot of punishment. In AA, despite the disruption by immune cells, the hair follicles are capable of regeneration given the right condition, even after many years of immune cell insult. The Calosol 4H solution works by encouraging the hair follicles to switch on again and migrate back to its original position and start reproducing hair fibber again (regrowth of lost hair).
Initial signs to look out for after a few weeks of Calosol products use:
1. The AA patches become rough to the feel (from silky to the touch) and
2. When Calosol starts being effective, a new hair cycle starts and the
thin newly synthesised (baby hair) hair shaft merges at the scalp surface. The vellus hairs eventually grow into terminal-type pigmented hair shaft.
How does Calosol Anti-hair loss shampoo work?
The Calosol shampoo is easy to use and easy to reach every part of the scalp. The stimulating extracts penetrate further into the scalp to neutralize the inflammation present in the scalp thereby encouraging the hair follicles to switch on again and start reproducing hair fibber again (regrowth of lost hair). Simply use the Calosol shampoo on prewashed scalp, allow 3-5 minutes before rinse.
Are the Calosol products effective for preventative use?
Yes, if the Alopecia areata sufferer has had a recent regrowth, using the Calosol Anti-Hair loss shampoo and the Calosol 4H Spray Tonic, will be likely to have positive results.
Will the hair regrow in the same pattern?
The usual pattern of regrowth for most AA cases is for the hair that is lost last should be the first to regrow, “when Calosol starts being effective, a new hair cycle starts and the thin newly synthesised hair shaft merges at the scalp surface. With the Calosol products in daily use, the vellus hairs eventually grow into terminal-type pigmented hair shaft”. There are also a few exceptions to the rule.
Is it necessary to use Calosol products for life?
No. The Calosol 4H, which contains hair stimulating plant extracts, should be used until the desired results have been achieved. In AA the target is a 100% scalp hair regrowth.
The duration of the treatment is determined by the severity of the condition of one’s AA, the age and the etiologic factors involved. For most severe AA cases like Alopecia Universalis (AU) the average time is two-years period. It is recommended that in order to maintain the optimum levels for healthy hair, you should continue the use of the shampoo once a week for a few months after you achieved a 100% scalp hair regrowth.
Is it necessary to use all the Calosol range products to achieve results?
No, it is not necessary, but we know from experience that using the Calosol 4H solution with the Calosol Shampoo and the Calosol Oil Blend, you will accelerate the rate of regrowth.
Are the products safe?
Yes. Calosol contains herbal extracts and the actives in the formulas are plant extracts ingredients, which have been used for hundreds of years.
What is the duration needed for regrowth? How long for Calosol 4H to work?
The duration of the treatment is determined by the severity of the condition and the type of alopecia.
Usually, the hair that is lost last will be the first to regrow, Alopecia Areata cases with small patches could respond almost immediately. The target is 100% scalp hair regrowth. Most alopecians do not mind the longer-term treatment required for the severe cases of AT and AU, so long as they can see continuing improvement in stages.
