TR1 - Foam

Origenere®TR1™ Foam Trichological Revolution

ORIGENERE® TR1™ Foam is patented formulation resulting from years of research. This foam is formulated from natural plant ingredients known for centuries to aid people with thinning hair problems. Now used with our latest technology. For men and women.

ORIGENERE® has spent the past 5 years developing the new TR1™ Foam. In order to prove the effectiveness of TR1™ our researchers have conducted a 20-patient 3-month study that included patients from every age, ethnic group and class of hair loss.

TR1™ Foam was applied daily on the whole scalp of the patient for the whole 3 months. The applications were done on Zone 1,2,3, and 4 of the scalp. Macro and micro and photographs were taken at month 0 and month 3. The macro photographs were taken with a hair length of 3 mm for effective comparison. The micro photographs were taken with a hair length of 0.5 mm.

Sophisticated software and cameras were used to count hair development and identify hairs in the various hair cycles - Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. All the values of hair development are "net of hair cycle". This means that from "Month 0" to "Month 3" we only counted as developed hairs only the hairs which developed in that time period which are not due to the natural hair cycle.

The hairs were classified by their thickness. They are called "Vellus Hair" if they were less than 40 microns thick. The hairs are named "Terminal Hairs" if they are more than 40 microns thick. Terminal hairs are what you call "normal hairs".

Any tonic of hair application that is effective will initially show an increase of vellus hairs - these are thin, without color, and less than 40 microns. As these hairs develop they become terminal hair with color - given by melanin - and with a thickness of more than 40 microns.

The chart below shows the values for the development of the hairs in each group of participants in the study. The participants were grouped by hair loss class according to Pattern 1 of the Alvi Armani hair loss classification.

Note that a decrease in the number of vellus hairs means that these hairs developed into terminal hairs. In the case of study participants that are in the higher hair loss classes - 5,6, and 7 - and hence started with much less hairs (higher degree of baldness), the vellus hairs after 3 months still continue to increase as well as the terminal hair. This is because these participants started with very few terminal hairs and few vellus hairs. In the initial phases a large number of the vellus hairs were under the skin, and therefore not recorded at Month 0. As the study progressed the vellus hairs converted to terminal hairs but they also came from underneath the skin to "show up" as vellus hairs in the hair count.

This chart reflects all the statistics of the study. Please also refer to the micro photography for reference.
