THYMUSKIN® FAQs

Does Thymuskin work better for men or for women?

There are no gender-specific differences in the effect of Thymuskin. However, women usually do better in our tests. But this is due to the fact that women generally use Thymuskin products more regularly and more consistently than men. Otherwise there are no differences in terms of effectiveness°*.

Can I combine Thymuskin with other substances to treat thin hair problems?

Generally there are no objections to such a combination and it is ultimately a question of your wallet. However we would advise you to leave a sufficient interval of time between the different applications. In addition, other substances are often associated with side effects, which is not the case with Thymuskin°*. To prevent these too, we recommend to have a safety time between applications of at least 8-10 hours. However, you are unlikely to be able to stop your thin hair problems quickly with a combination of this kind, because the natural hair cycle cannot be overridden, and patience and consistency are definitely necessary°*.

I have been suffering from thin hair for some time, and my scalp is itchy and flaky. Can I still use Thymuskin?

You are possibly suffering from eczema of the scalp, which definitely needs to be treated before you use Thymuskin. We recommend you to find a dermatologist to clarify this beforehand. Once the eczema has been treated there is no reason why you should not successfully use Thymuskin°*.

Why are there so many different Thymuskin products and how do I find my way around them?

Thymuskin is the only product in the world which takes account not only of the different degrees of thin hair, but also the individual condition of the hair and scalp, because everyone is different. The Thymuskin product finder will give you help and guidance on finding the right Thymuskin product combination. You find the product finder on our website.

I have just been on a diet and lost some weight, but I problems with thin hair. What can I do?

Thymuskin can help very well here. As a result of your diet your entire organism has become confused, and unfortunately the roots of your hair are suffering from this too. In order to reinforce the hair follicles again and improve scalp coverage, you should use Thymuskin MED or FORTE shampoo every day in combination with the Thymuskin scalp serum°*.

Can Thymuskin Serum for the scalp also be used on dry hair?

Thymuskin Scalp Serum treatment can also be used very effectively on dry hair: to do so, part the hair carefully, apply Thymuskin Scalp Serum directly to the scalp and massage in carefully°*. None of the Thymuskin Scalp Serums (Gel) leave a greasy film. However, it is important always to apply Thymuskin Scalp Serums directly onto the scalp and NOT onto the hair!

Can I blow dry my hair after using Thymuskin Serum for the scalp?

You should refrain from using your hairdryer immediately after applying Thymuskin Serum. If the hot air from the dryer reaches your scalp, it will cause your scalp to sweat, and valuable ingredients and active substances in Thymuskin could be lost. If you cannot manage without your hair dryer, please wait for at least 10 minutes and dry your hair with air that is as cold as possible, or ensure that the warm air from the dryer does not directly reach the scalp.

You recommend washing your hair every time before using Thymuskin Scalp Serum. But then I am afraid that I will lose hair while washing my hair. Can I wash my hair less often, too?

Washing your hair does not cause any increase falling. In principle it is possible to wash your hair only 2-3 times a week and use Thymuskin Scalp Serum every day. On the days when you do not wash your hair, please be careful not to use any styling products which might build up on your hair to avoid massaging these into your scalp

Ideally at what time of day should I use the Thymuskin products?

There are no strict rules here. You can entirely coordinate the use of Thymuskin with your usual habits: many people wash and style their hair in the morning, while other people prefer to do this in the evening.

I have only light problems with thin hair; is Thymuskin Shampoo sufficient here?

All the tests of Thymuskin have been carried out strictly with combined use of Thymuskin Shampoo and Scalp Serum treatment. But there are also users who report that single use of Thymuskin Shampoo is effective in treating light thin hair problems. In this case you should allow the Thymuskin Shampoo to work for a while. If there are no signs of improvement after around 4 weeks, you should use Thymuskin Scalp Serum in addition°*.

Can I have my hair highlighted despite using Thymuskin?

Yes, of course, that is not a problem at all. Just make sure you use high quality products or let your hairdresser advise you.

Why do you need to wash your hair beforehand with Thymuskin Shampoo before applying the Thymuskin Scalp Serum?

Firstly because Thymuskin Shampoo prepares your scalp ideally for the Thymuskin Scalp Serum. And secondly washing your hair in advance is advisable because every day particles of dirt and dust are deposited on the scalp, which could possibly be massaged into the scalp together with the Thymuskin Scalp Serum and could lead to skin irritations. Foreign shampoos do not contain the active ingredient complex GKL-02. Furthermore, foreign shampoos often contain contraindicated ingredients, like e.g. silicons.

I have been using Thymuskin for some time, but because my hair is very fine I need a styling mousse and hairspray. Can I use both of these, too?

Yes, that is not a problem because they are finishing products which are used after the Thymuskin Scalp Serum has been applied. But please note that you should wash your hair every time before applying the Thymuskin Scalp Serum again. Since there can be residues of mousse and hairspray on your scalp, there is a risk of these being massaged into your scalp with the Thymuskin Scalp Serum, which can lead to skin irritations.

What can I do about dull and brittle hair?

We have obtained good results here with Thymuskin FORTE Shampoo; it contains twice the amount of active substances together with selected haircare ingredients to revitalise and regenerate the hair; Thymuskin FORTE Shampoo should be used every time you wash your hair and left to work for a while, then rinsed out with lukewarm water°*.

I do not have any hair loss, but over time my hair is getting constantly thinner. Can Thymuskin help me here?

Yes, Thymuskin can help to reinforce hair and to improve scalp coverage°*.

As a woman with thin, dry hair, I would like to have a perm. Will a perm damage my hair?

You should strictly only consider having a perm when your hair is healthy. If your hair is already damaged, a perm can only make this condition worse. You should therefore reinforce and care for your hair first. After a perm it is advisable to use a long-lasting conditioner such as Thymuskin Balsam Intensive Conditioner.

Is it true that egg white or beer is good for my hair?

If you have already tried beer as a rinse conditioner is well worth noting that egg white and beer only have a positive influence on the hair shaft by making hair that has already been washed silkier and improving its shine. Neither have hardly any other effect. The time and effort involved are also great (stickiness and smell), so it is better to rely on normal commercial products and special care products as necessary.

Does colouring damage the hair?

Colouring does not damage hair in principle, but you should be aware that in any case it is a major invasion of the hair structure. When colouring your hair, the hair should be healthy, the preparations used should care for the hair as much as possible and colouring procedures should not be undertaken at in too many frequent intervals. If the selected shade is entirely different to the natural hair colour, only the roots should be retouched at frequent intervals. Coloured hair definitely needs intensive care. After colouring the hair a conditioner should be used, if possible Thymuskin Balsam Intensive Conditioner.
