Reduces Hair Loss
Follicle Defence contains a unique combination of actives to protect hair and scalp cells from damage and reduce hair loss.
Follicle Defence also contains Nanogen sh-VEGF Complex to reduce hair loss and maintain hair growth. These are all delivered by the
unique Active Conditioner system , ensuring an effective concentration reaches the hair follicles.
Optimises the effect of Nanofibres®
Unlike other conditioners, Follicle Defence uses patent pending electrostatic technology. This creates the perfect charge on the
hair for Nanofibres to bind to, improving the binding and hair thickening results from Nanofibres.
Creates Lasting Volume and Shine
Unique thickening and moisturising actives penetrate and nourish the hair, giving thicker and healthier hair from within. Designed
for weekly use, the hair thickening ingredients do not build up on the outside of your hair over time. This creates lasting light
and natural thickening without heaviness, and also allows the treatment actives and other topical treatments to penetrate the skin
and hair efficiently.
Conditioning thinning hair has always been difficult, and there are many factors to consider.
Most conditioners coat the hair. This works well but the coating builds up over time which can weigh hair down. This
causes thinning hair to look heavy, dull, and thinner than it actually is. The same coating may also slow the penetration
of topical treatments used afterwards.
Nanogen Active Conditioners not only solve these problems, but utilise unique technology to deliver active ingredients
through the hair and scalp more effectively than any treatment shampoo.
- Apply a very generous amount to wet hair.
- Massage thoroughly throughout the hair and scalp, the conditioner will not foam significantly.
- Leave for around 10 minutes then rinse thoroughly.
- Use weekly for best results.
Is it safe to use the Follicle Defence every day?
It is not recommended to use this product every day. Nanogen recommend using this product once per week to support other
treatments that you are using. Although it is not unsafe to use this product daily, it is not recommended as the high
concentration of active ingredients can weigh the hair down. More infrequent use gives the maximum benefit in terms of
treatment & conditioning effect.
Should I wash my hair with Hair Prepare or a regular shampoo before using this product?
Yes you should. Wash your hair as you normally would, with Hair Prepare or with another shampoo prior to applying Follicle
Can I combine using the Follicle Defence with a regular shampoo?
Yes you can. Although Nanogen recommend that you use Follicle Defence after Hair Prepare, you will still see results from
using Follicle Defence after any shampoo.
Should I condition my hair with Nanogen's Daily Volume or an ordinary conditioner before applying Follicle Defence?
Applying another conditioning product before using Follicle Defence is definitely not necessary, although it wouldn't be
If I use Follicle Defence once a week how long will it last?
One bottle of Follicle Defence will last around one month when used weekly.
What is an Active Conditioner?
An Active Conditioner works to actually improve the natural health and feel of your hair. Most conditioners simply coat the
hair to make it look smooth. Nanogen Active Conditioners have deep penetrating emollients to hydrate and nourish hair from
within, leaving thicker, healthier hair with natural shine. Follicle Defence furthers the Active Conditioner technology,
using it to deliver actives that reduce hair loss. Active Conditioners also create the perfect hair surface for Nanofibres
to bind to, giving better results from Nanofibres.
Can I use this product whilst using Minoxidil or Finasteride?
Yes you can. All Nanogen products are compatible with the use of Minoxidil and Finasteride.
What kind of results should I expect?
You should expect a reduction in hair loss, as well as thicker, smoother and healthier feeling hair.
How long before I see results?
You will have healthier and a more voluminous looking and feeling hair after the first application, and a reduction in the
amount of hair loss after approximately one month.
What is the difference between Daily Volume and Follicle Defence?
Daily Volume will help to add volume and thicken existing hair. Follicle Defence contains high levels of powerful active
ingredients which will provide a reduction in hair loss over time, as well as nourishing and conditioning your hair.
Will using Follicle Defence affect the camouflage that I am using to disguise my hair loss?
Yes, Follicle Defence is designed to create the perfect surface for Nanofibres to bind to. Whereas some conditioners do
have a detrimental effect on concealers, Nanogen conditioners are formulated to work in conjunction with Nanofibres and any
other cosmetic concealer. The thickening effect that Follicle Defence has on your hair will also aid the camouflage
products that you use by giving a more voluminous look to hair.
Do I rinse it out? How long do I leave it on for?
Yes, you do need to rinse out the Follicle Defence mask after 10 minutes or so. Leaving it on for longer won't cause any
harm, but the intensive conditioning over a long period may weigh the hair down and leave it looking less healthy and
Anti-Hair Loss Complex
Follicle Defence contains caffeine, saw palmetto, taurine, beta-sitosterols, green tea, prunus africana and urtica dioica extracts
to reduce hair loss. Follicle Defence also contains Nanogen sh-VEGF complex to help reduce hair loss and maintain healthy hair
growth. The ingredients are delivered at high levels utilising the active condtioner system.
Deep Penetrating Nutrients and Emollients
Emollients like cocos nucifera oil penetrate deep into the hair to give long lasting volume from within. Actives
L-cysteine and pantothenic acid nourish the hair, giving it a natural healthy shine.
Amphoteric Surfactants and Dipolar Amino Acids
Most conditioners coat the hair with a film that is the opposite electrostatic charge to natural hair. Follicle Defence uses a
patent pending combination of amphoteric surfactants and amino acids to mimic your hair’s natural charge. This is the
perfect charge for Nanofibres to bind to, and so maximises the hair thickening effect of the Nanofibres.
Follicle Defence is safe and free from:
SLS and SLES
These common surfactants are very harsh and drying to hair. They can also leave skin dry and irritated when left on the skin for
several minutes, such as with Follicle Defence. Whilst not dangerous, SLS and SLES can be drying, irritating, and pore-blocking,
which may lead to folliculitis. Therefore no Nanogen product contains SLS or SLES.
Many people worry about the group of preservatives called parabens. Nanogen do not believe these are harmful, but appreciate our
client's concerns and so all our products are paraben free.
Glycols such as propylene glycol are common preservatives and solvents. These can be pore-blocking and irritating, and so no
Nanogen products contains any form of glycol.
Many common preservatives in cosmetics are formaldehyde donors. These are not dangerous, but formaldehyde will damage skin
and growing hair cells, so no Nanogen product contains them.
