thought you might get a kick out of this:
I went to my primary care physician yesterday with intention of
getting a prescription for Minoxodil 5%. I had gotten up in the
morning and done my normal hair routine which involves me using
ProThik to conceal my hair loss.
After a preliminary checkup the doctor asked me what else I wanted
to talk about. I said I was interested in the Minox 5% and he actually
listened to my little speech. He then promptly informed me I did
not have enough hair loss for him to prescribe it.
No matter how much I tried to explain to him that I had a 4 inch
diameter balding spot that was covered with ProThik he refused to
believe it. The man was digging around in my hair and would have
sworn to Jesus I had a full head of hair.
Well I didn't get my prescription for Minox 5% but I pretty happy
that a medical doctor can't even detect my hair loss.
Your selling a wonderful product that literally works miracles.
Except for one thing. I was sent MBRN color and my hair is BROWN.
I think I was sent the wrong color. My name is:#### #########
Please send the right color because this stuff really works! But
looks funny when the top of my head looks different from the side
of my head.
I recently ordered ProTHIK, and am *extremely* happy with the results!
I have been using Ronco GLH9 for 4 yrs. and was mostly happy with
the results--it covered my thinning spots well, but was very messy,
and the powder residue was noticeable in close-up situations, which
has always left me a bit apprehensive. I have tried ##### and one
other spray (which was more like spray paint), but nothing came
close toGLH9...until now.
I found your product to be far superior--I even reverted back to
an old white pillowcase (I started using navy blue so the residue
wasn't as noticeable), and am amazed that there is barely any rub-off.
I also used to be afraid for anyone to rub their fingers through
my hair, but your product stays on my hair and scalp, not on *their*
fingers, and doesn't smudge on me. I was also amazed at how well
it resists water...getting caught in the rain used to be stressful
too. Have you heard of anyone trying to swim with it? I imagine
it is not perfect, but may hold up.
Of course, I just ordered a year's supply of GLH9 a month ago,
but I will just use that as a backup--I intend to continue using
Thanks so much for a great product...anything that makes my life
less stressful and makes me look better is worth its weight in gold!
Sincerely, ######## ########
I have only used the product twice, but I'll have to admit I'm
pretty impressed so far. A few marketing suggestions; 1)You might
want to think about coming out with a "travel size" for
people when they are on a trip/away from home. 2) Men hate the word
"bald". Literally it means "lacking hair on the head-
Websters Deluxe". Personally, to me bald connotes someone with
more than 50% of his hair gone. You might want to rephrase bald
to the sexier word "bare" so the can reads from "
A colored hair thickener for covering bald spots " to "
A colored hair thickener for enhancing thin or bare spots. "
This way if someone finds the can it won't be as embarrassing. 3)
Your Website seems to discourage hairline use, whereas I think it
is the best product I have found for this as long as you still have
some hair there. People think my hairline looks thicker and had
no idea there is anything there. I hope you find these suggestions
[Reply] Glad it works for you at front hairline.
We have found people with almost no hair trying to use it this way
and the result is just notacceptable; we do say proceed with caution
in frontal areas.
------------> I appreciate your high standards but I was almost
turned off when I read the following at your Q&A Website section
" Can proTHIKtm be applied at the frontal hairline? >Not
recommended at this time.
Application should begin 1/2 " to 1" " I understand
your words of caution because you probably won't to avoid a similar
stigma associated currently with toupees- hair systems. John over
at regrowth.com and Tony at thebaldman.com also seem to recommend
Prothik for the hairline. As long as you still have some hair there,
it seems like an excellent thickener/volumizer.
The more I use the Prothik, the more amazed I am by it. Let me
know if I can be of any more help.
I received my order today and have a question. When I ordered the
product I thought I checked the medium brown color. The cans I received
are labeled Dark Brown with the number 5105 stamped on the bottom
of the cans.
I tried the product already and noticed it was a little dark. Besides
the color being darker then I wanted, I am already more than pleased
with the difference it makes to the thickness of my hair. I've been
going through transplant surgery for the past year or so and have
a couple more sessions to go, and I have been a big user of *******.
In my opinion ******* can't even come close to your product. Prothik
is quicker and easier to use and the difference is amazing. I know
I'll beusing this product even after my transplants are done, just
to enhance my appearance.
Thank you very much.
I am still amazed every time I use ProThik (I have my rubbing alcohol
& Q-tips ready for any overspray). It's like getting the look
of 1000 grown-out hair transplants grafts in 2 minutes; not that
I have had transplants but seen them on others. I get compliments
all the time.
My records could be wrong but I don't see a charge from you guys
for my order on 3/26, received 4/1. There was that initial color
problem but you rectified it immediately and I have subsequently
been enormously satisfied if not amazed by ProThik so please charge
me. I am indebted to your product at this difficult time (part AGA,
part drug-induced loss).
Now that is what I call customer service! As a matter of fact the
can you sent me does experience some difficulty dispensing the product
evenly. I recently purchased two other cans of your product that
do not behave this way so I believe something is wrong with the
can in question. I would greatly appreciate a replacement (MDBR).
My experience with your product is that it is far superior to 4
others like it that I have used. Your good faith effort by notifing
me of this situation [ NOTE problems with a lot
#7****] will only further ensure that I continue to use your
product in the future.
comment (Posted to Survey Page) I'm using both products. I'm experimenting
with each individually and in combination. I'm using the products
to hide larger HT grafts that I had five years ago as well as covering
thinning areas. Both work great, though I have a little better luck
with the proThik. COUVR'e tends to make the grafts stand out, as
it's hard to get the COURVR'e only on the scalp. It tends to stick
on the grafts, near the scalp, making them more obvious. I've had
pretty good luck nearer the front. I use the proThik to cover the
grafted area. In fact lately I've really only been using the proThik.
I've seen good results with the newer HT procedures. Unfortunately
for me, I didn't choose my doctor as carefully as I should have.
I wish I would have had access to alt.baldspot and this web site
five years ago. It's been a great relief to find out about COUVR'e
and proThik. I thank you for your reviews and providing me with
this valuable information.
wanted to let you know that I did receive my order a few days ago.
I also wanted to thank you for including the extra can of the black/brown.
I have nothing but praise for the way this whole situation was handled.
You have secured a customer for life.
geniunely appreciate you sending me a sample at no obligation. I
did not even call to give you my credit card number and you sent
it anyway based on my Email request.
My hair is a little too thin for your product to work effectively,
but I thank you again for letting me try it.
Could I get another order sent out using the same Credit Card,
address, and product info from my last order?
Though I'm still on my first can of proTHIK, I'd like to get another
order. I am amazed at the results I've gotten from proTHIK. I've
used several other type products, but only the proTHIK has gotten
me where I want to be. Thank you for a great product.
My name is *************** I have ordered your product PROTHIK
a couple of times in the last two months, the last time I ordered
it I purchased 4 cans. I have been very happy with the product and
I would like to order another four cans. Thank's again for having
such a great product. looking forward to receiving my order real
I am amazed on a daily basis by your product and am about to reorder.
I am getting better at applying it the more I use it. The onlything
that throws me off is the Greying even though it is easily remedied
by regular hairspray but the hairspray makes the hair stiff so I
have to stick with the style at that moment, maybe I should find
another hairspray (now use Sebastion Spritz-Finishing Spray).
My shampoo (Neutrogena anti-residue) also only do
an ok job in removing the prothik/hairspray combo and frequently
have to shampoo it more than once a shower to get it all off.
Don't get me wrong I'm Very happily addicted to Prothik but was
curious on what to expect from the new products and if you had any
advice for making my current habit easier?
[Reply] Shampoo/Remover now available. Removes
proTHIK quickly and efficiently.
I just use your product at the first time, and it give
me a very good look for my hair, and I am very happy in using it,
so I decide to orderthe case of product for $149.95, but how many
cans for this case of products? Please let me know, and my information
are shown below:
Name: Dickie #######
Address: Kwun Tong, Kowloon, Hong Kong.
[Reply] 12 cans to the case.
really has helped tremendously with restoring my sense of control
over this annoying, mundane problem but overwhelming for a 26 yr
old former handsome guy who had the confidence to approach any life
challenge (especially beautiful women). I think ProThik will enhance any new growth and continue
to be the most effective grooming product in my arsenal. When I
come across some guys in the Newsgroup looking for doctors in my
area I always tell them to try Prothik immediately before the frequently
progressive condition continues to depress their outlook. It is
definitely the most immediate gratification anyone can try in dealing
with this issue. It may sound superficial but I am only being honest
when say that I am so much more at ease and content since I found
for letting me know about the status of my order. DKBR is the one
I prefer so that will
be fine along with the BR/BK. Just for the heck of it I went out
the other day and bought some of the ##### Hair Plus product, and
wow what a remarkable difference between your product and theirs.
The coverage was horrible, looked terrible and was very difficult
to comb through.
Since I've got transplants I don't want to be pulling my hair out
of my head. This stuff sure was bad.
Well thanks again for keeping up on the customer relations.
