How it works

In Chinese medicine hair growth and development is regulated by the Kidney and Liver organ-meridian systems, with Kidney Essence (also known as Jing) promoting hair growth, and Liver Blood directing nourishment to the hair follicles and scalp.

Low levels of either Jing or Liver Blood may cause hair loss (including alopecia areata and both male and female pattern baldness), and/or cause the hair to become dry, brittle, or prematurely grey.

Fusion® Health Hair Tonic contains herbs such as Dong quai, Peony and Rehmannia, which have traditionally been used to support, nourish and invigorate these systems, revitalising the scalp and hair follicles, and promoting healthy hair growth.

In addition, our exclusive, proprietary ingredient Phytofol®, a standardised extract of the Chinese herb Fallopia multiflora, helps regenerate and revitalise resting hair follicles to increase the number of hairs in the growth phase of the hair growth cycle. It may also help lower levels of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT; excessive quantities of which can lead to male and female pattern baldness by causing the hair follicles to shrivel or atrophy) and increase hair follicle pigment (melanin) to promote normal hair colour and help inhibit premature greying.

Frequently asked questions

What is the recommended maintenance dose of Fusion® Hair Tonic for the management of Alopecia?

For optimal results; we recommend you take Hair Tonic with Phytofol® together with Fusion® Hair, Skin & Nails with Silica & Phytofol® which contains essential vitamins and minerals to support healthy hair growth and condition and helps restore dry, dull and thinning hair.

The therapeutic recommended dose for alopecia management is:

Fusion® Hair Tonic – 2 capsules twice daily (Generally taken ½ an hour before food or if you have a sensitive digestive system take after your meal)

Fusion Hair, Skin & Nails - 1 tablet daily after food

An extra dose may be taken to enhance results of both products. (Intensive therapy)

 

How long until I notice results?

Recommend to take the products for at least 2-3 months (12 weeks) before assessing how the formulas are working for you. The time frame differs for everybody, you may notice a difference a lot sooner or it may take a bit longer. 12 weeks might be an appropriate time frame to expect to start seeing results.

 

How long do I need to take it for?

Once you are happy with the health of your hair then we recommend a maintenance dose (2 capsules/day of Hair Tonic) be continued for a few months. Hair Tonic with Phytofol® may be taken long term.

 

Are there any side effects?

You will find a warning on the label for the herb Fallopia multiflora. In rare cases this herb has shown to increase liver enzymes. The Fallopia multiflora root that we use in the Hair Tonic is a specially prepared extract called Phytofol®; this is prepared in such a manner to enhance the tonic action and reduce any potential for adverse effects.

 

If I stop taking Hair Tonic will my hair fall out?

If you have followed the dosage recommendations and continued on with a maintenance dose (keeping in mind hair growth cycles can be 2-7years) and completely satisfied with your hair condition then stopping the products shouldn’t cause the hair to fall out or lose the past benefits of Hair Tonic. Many people however, choose to continue taking the formulas for ongoing benefits.

 

Why is there a liver warning on the label?

The warning we have on the Fusion® Health Hair Tonic and Hair, Skin& Nails labels is a mandatory requirement in Australia for all complementary medicines that contain the herb Fallopia multiflora. Some Fallopia multiflora on the market contain compounds that may be harmful to the liver.  Also, in rare cases this herb has shown to increase liver enzymes. However the Fallopia multiflora root we use in the Hair Tonic is a specialised extract called Phytofol®, prepared by a specific process that minimises the content of potentially toxic compounds in the extract, helps to enhance the tonic action and helps reduce any potential for adverse effects. The formula also contains many herbs that work synergistically together to promote safety and activity, including herbs which have liver protecting properties. Fusion health products are manufactured in Australia and tested at every stage of manufacture to ensure safety of our products.

 

I have androgenic alopecia, will Hair Tonic with Phytofol® help?

Androgenic alopecia is caused by a genetic sensitivity of hair follicles to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) a potent form of testosterone (androgen). This hormone causes follicles to shrink or “miniaturize”. In turn, this shortens their lifespan and prevents them from producing hair normally. Fusion® Health Men’s Balance provides further support to help maintain healthy androgen balance especially with Saw Palmetto, a botanical medicine that may inhibit 5 alpha reductase and excessive DHT.

 

Will I grow abnormal body hair?

If you are taking the Fusion® Health Hair Tonic in addition to the Fusion® Hair, Skin & Nails then there is a possibility that hair removed by electrolysis, laser or IPL may grow back. These hair removal treatments don’t necessarily kill the hair follicle it may just stop it in its cycle or render it dormant.

 

Why should I take the Hair, Skin & Nails with Silica & Phytofol too?
Fusion® Hair, Skin & Nails is the nutritional companion to Fusion® Hair Tonic. Hair, Skin & Nails contains nutrients which are essential for cell growth and protein synthesis. It contains 150mg of Silica to help strengthen hair and 1000mg of Phytofol® (a standardised extract of the herb Fallopia multiflora) which may help direct the nutrients to the hair follicle. Hair Skin & Nails helps nourish and support healthy hair growth while ensuring you have all the essential nutrients to help maintain healthy hair.

 

Does it work for all types of hair loss?

Some forms of Alopecia may not respond to Hair tonic. It depends on how long the hair has been lost for and whether all other factors contributing to hair loss have been addressed. If there has been any damage to hair follicle where scar tissue has formed (frontal fibrosing alopecia) then Fusion® Hair Tonic would be unlikely to work in that condition.

 

Does it help with premature greying?

Yes, the Phytofol® can help to increase hair follicle melanin to promote normal hair colour and help inhibit premature greying. We have a great testimonial about this – see online.

 

Will my hair grow back if I have laser treatment to remove unwanted hair from my body?  (i.e. in addition to electrolysis)?

If you are taking the Fusion® Health Hair Tonic in addition to the Fusion® Hair, Skin & Nails then there is a possibility that hair removed by electrolysis, laser or IPL may grow back. These hair removal treatments don’t necessarily kill the hair follicle it may just stop it in its cycle or render it dormant.

 

Is it Vegan / Vegetarian?

Fusion® Hair Tonic is vegan &vegetarian friendly.

Fusion® Hair, Skin & Nails is not Vegan/Veg friendly b/c it contains betacarotene which is micro encapsulated in animal derived gelatin.

 

Can I dissolve the Fusion® hair products in water?

Yes, the Hair Tonic with Phytofol® capsule can be pulled apart and the herb powder mixed with water or juice. Hair, Skin & Nails with Silica & Phytofol® tablet can dissolve in warm water in under 20 mins.

 

What is the Fusion® Hair Tonic with Phytofol® recommended children’s dosage?

Child 6-12 years – 1 capsule once or twice daily

Ways to administer for children: honey if over 12 months old, sweet juice – blackcurrant, mixed in with jelly, mixed in with mashed banana

 

What causes Hair Loss?

Alopecia (hair loss) can occur when too many hair follicles are in a resting (telogen) phase of the hair growth cycle, producing visible hair loss. Normally 85-90%of hair follicles are in the growing (anagen) phase but in alopecia up to 100% of the hair follicles are in resting phase (telogen).

Hair loss can become visible when there are too many resting hair follicles and the longer they remain resting, the greater the chance of permanent and irreversible hair loss. Fusion® Health Tonic with Phytofol® have been developed to help regenerate hair follicles in this critical phase of the hair growth cycle and increase the percentage of normal, healthy hair follicles in the anagen phase.

In Chinese medicine, the growth and development of the hair depends on the health of the Kidney and Liver organ-meridian systems, with Kidney Essence (Jing) influencing the growth of the hair, and Liver Blood providing nourishment to the scalp and hair follicles. Deficiency of either Jing or Liver Blood may have detrimental effects on the hair, leading to issues such as dryness, brittleness, premature greying, and hair loss including male and female pattern baldness (sometimes called androgenic alopecia) and alopecia (including spot or patchy baldness).

 

How does the Hair Tonic work?

Phytofol® may help regenerate resting hair follicles to increase the percentage of normal healthy hair follicles in the anagen or growth phase of the hair growth cycle. This may assist in the management of alopecia (hair loss). Phytofol® may inhibit 5-alpha reductase to reduce dihydrotestosterone (DHT) that can cause progressive hair follicle shrinkage over repeated hair cycles with a shorter and shorter anagen phase, leading to male and female pattern baldness. Phytofol® may also increase hair follicle melanin to promote normal hair colour and help inhibit premature greying. From a Chinese medicine perspective hair loss, poor condition of hair and premature greying are primarily caused by poorly nourished Liver Blood and depleted Kidney energy (Jing).  Energetically, Phytofol® nourishes and invigorates Liver Blood, and replenishes Kidney Jing to help revitalise and regenerate hair follicles to promote healthy hair growth, condition and colour.
