This led to the development of Hair V Go. Using a pH between 12.2-12.4, Hair V Go breaks down the bonds that hold the hairs’ cells together. It works by dissolving the lipid bonds across the hair shaft and going down into the hair shaft. So it works in two ways meaning that penetration occurs across the hair shaft and down the hair follicle.
By travelling down the follicle, Hair V Go begins to disable the stem cells within the bulge. These stem cells are responsible for creating the hair follicle and regenerate not only the follicle but also the epithelial layer. Therefore, unless we can disable or destroy the stem cells, hair will continue to grow. Hair V Go progressively disables stem cells within the bulge which reduces their activity, hence hair reduction is achieved.
Hair V Go treatment protocol is simple to follow. Since Hair V Go treatments are an alkaline formulation, it is essential the acid mantle of the skin is not disrupted prior to treatment; this means that the skin should not be cleansed even if the client is wearing makeup.
It is recommended that treatments are initially carried out every three to four weeks. Then, as hair growth decreases the period between treatments is increased to four weeks, five weeks and so on. Eventually the client will require just one or two management sessions a year.
