Question: Hi, I am a frequent user of the Phase 1,2,3 Headstart vitamin programme which I have found to be very beneficial to the growth of my hair especially since having my son. It got very weak for a while after the birth. Reason I am writing to you is to ask the question if this course if safe to take during pregnancy or do you have any information to support that it might be ok. Most likely I would start again once the baby is born but then this poses the question as to whether it is safe during breastfeeding. Your advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks, Linda
Answer: Linda - Most women find that using Head Start ® both during and following pregnancy is beneficial due to the fact that the hormonal changes during pregnancy can cause moderate to severe hair-loss as the fetus tends to use more of the mother's dietary nutrients and deprive her of those nutritional benefits. Additionally, during breastfeeding an inordinate amount of nutrients are shuttled by your body to the baby through breastmilk, often leaving the new mother lacking for her own needs. Head Start ® contains not only folic acid (folacin), but other vitamins, minerals and amino-acids necessary to the healthy development of your child in the womb. Many physicians find it a comfortable adjunct to pre-natal supplements or a useful substitute, based on specific nutritional needs of the individual patient.
We would recommend you ask your physician about continuing the products during pregnancy and breastfeeding as that is the best source of medical advice for your own individual condition and that of your child, since it should be considered in relation to other supplements you may be taking and what your pediatrician feels is best for the baby as well as for you. Most physicians feel that post-partum supplementation is beneficial to the health of the mother, but you should check with your own doctor for personal medical guidance.

Question: I have been taking your product for about 2 months or so now. I have begun to notice some good changes. When I went in for my yearly physical recently, my blood work came out showing that my thyroid was really out of whack again. It had been under control for some time. My doctor wasn't sure what had changed. I didn't think much about it, and I did tell her that I was taking these vitamins for hair loss, but she seemed to think they were okay. She doubled my thyroid medication, and I have to have it re-checked in 6 weeks. A few days later I was reading a natural remedy book that my mother-in-law had I saw that when you are taking thyroid medication that you cannot take any vitamins with iron until at least four hours after the thyroid med. Previous to the Head Start Program, I had been taking Centrum Silver every day. I stopped taking the Centrum Silver when I started your regime. In going over the ingredients in your Head Start Vitamins, I noticed that there is Iron in there. If you take thyroid meds, it says you shouldn't consume any vitamins with Iron for at least four hours afterwards so I switched back to my Centrum Silver.
Since I need to take my thyroid in the AM, I can't take the Vitamins and Protein in the AM. I thought I could switch to taking the Nutrition tablets in the morning instead of the Vitamins, but I see the Nutrition also has iron in it. The Nutrition is not a problem because I take that at the evening meal. My question is will taking only your Protein tablet in the morning and your Nutrition tablet in the evening work as well as taking all three of these tablets. I would just replace the Head Start Vitamins with Centrum Silver in the morning when I take the Protein tablets. I would greatly appreciate your thoughts and answers on this problem. Thanks, Cathy
Answer: Cathy - We have found that following your doctor's advice is always the best in these situations. If you take the prescription medication in the morning, as you describe, we advise you take your AM dosage of Head Start ® VITAMINS and PROTEIN at lunchtime (about 4-5 hours later) and then take the PM dose of NUTRiTiON with your evening meal or at bedtime. Our iron content in the VITAMINS is very low, just 22% (4mg) of your Minimum Daily Requirement in the VITAMINS and 11% (2mg) in the NUTRiTiON. In any event, our supplementation of iron is just 33% of your MDR and should not be a cause of concern. Check with your Doctor on your next office visit to be sure; and take along the original box where complete ingredients are listed for all three Phases.
Taking Head Start ® as described above should fit in with the thyroid regimen you have indicated is preferred, and will give you the same benefit you have enjoyed, without the need for Centrum and without interfering with the thyroid medication. Nothing wrong with Centrum, of course, but it does not utilize Niacin (vitamin B3) to increase the blood supply to your hair follicles as our Phase 1 & Phase 3 tablets do. This is one of the reasons other OTC multivitamin products do not have the direct beneficial effect on hair growth that you enjoy from Head Start ®
Alternatively, many people have told us they take all three of our tablets in the evening, as it seems to work best for them individually. This can be done, but you may find the lunch and dinner approach more beneficial as it spreads the nutrients out over a longer period of time, allowing availability to your metabolism on a more regular basis. Thank you for using Head Start ®
Question: Hi, my name is Agnes, I'm from Brazil. I have been using this product for 2 yrs, and I love it!! The question is: should I take one each of the 3 pills in the morning and same at night before I go to bed, will improve? Thanks Agnes
Answer: Agnes: Many of our customers report their success with using one of each Phase in the morning and one of each Phase at night. They say it works better and that their hair grows back in faster. The only advice we give in this regard is that you should not exceed 10,000IU of vitamin A per day since it is fat soluble and will build up in your system. Our Phase 1 VITAMINS contain just 5,000IU per tablet, so taking two each day is fine. While vitamin A is necessary for healthy hair growth, too much can have the opposite effect and actually slow the development of new hair shafts. This is something which would normally occur in excess of 25,000IU daily, but in an abundance of caution we recommend no more than 10,000IU daily. If you are taking a regular daily multi-vitamin, we advise you to stop as you receive most of what you need in the three Head Start ® formulae, especially when taken twice daily. If you are taking vitamin E or vitamin C separately, that is OK as they are not duplicated in the Head Start ® Nutritional HairCare System. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®
Question: I know this might sound rather strange to you but can you compare the size of these vitamins to another type of vitamin on the market? Reason being is that I find it difficult to swallow a large pill of any kind especially ones that are not coated. My other question is how come these vitamins are not in capsule form? I read where it's better to have a vitamin in capsule form versus pill form because they are never really totally digested by your system. In fact they have shown X-rays where the ones not in capsules are still whole in your stomach. Or is this just another type of fraud regarding a way to sell their vitamins to you. This particular site says liquid vitamins are the best to take? I would appreciate your feedback as soon as possible. I am interested in ordering # 200 if the size of the pills are small enough for me to swallow without any issues. Warmest regards, Kathryn from California
Answer: Kathryn : Here is the information on tablet size from our website - "The Best Formulae Come In The Smallest Packages - Over the years it has been our policy to produce our tablets in the smallest size possible while maintaining the full strength of all of the ingredients in each of the formulae. This has been due to requests from Head Start ® consumers who take our products daily, but had commented about many tablets being too large to swallow comfortably. By holding the amount of fillers and binders in each tablet to an absolute minimum, we have achieved what we feel is an optimum balance of size (approximately 1,200 mg) to active ingredients. You'll find nothing included in any of the Head Start ® Nutritional HairCare System tablets which doesn't have a sound physical, metabolic or nutritional reason for being there. No Unnecessary Ingredients Required Or Included Another benefit of the Phase 1, 2 & 3 For Your Hair Formulae is that they are free of sugar, salt, starch, wax, coloring, and artificial flavoring or preservatives."
As to the capsules, we try to avoid capsules with our products since the ingredients cannot be compressed and we would end up having to use a much larger size capsule to hold the formula than the #1 caplet we've used for 35 years. It's also why there are three separate tablets - we cannot get all of the ingredients into fewer tablets without making them too large for most people to swallow.
Our tablets are all manufactured under FDA guidelines in an FDA approved and inspected facility, are coated with a clear, smooth protein and are designed to disintegrate within fifteen to twenty minutes time using croscarmalose to burst the tablet on contact with water or any fluid as normally found in the digestive tract. This allows for total absorption of all active ingredients for optimum use by your metabolic system. Some vitamin ingredients should not be immediately released upon ingestion, and are best absorbed past the stomach in the duodenum, which is where ours normally dissolve, and one reason we've never gone to a liquid formula.
You may try our product for up to 120 days based on our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee as shown at the bottom of each of our web pages, so you have an opportunity to try them out for yourself risk free.

Question: I wish to discontinue receiving these vitamins. How do I get removed from the auto ship? Thank you, Robecka
Answer: Robecka : We do not have any sort of Auto Ship policy. When you place an order, we ship it to you... It's always been the same, for 35 years now. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®
Question: Hair Growth vitamins Hi. My daughter is 15 and would like to try some hair vitamins, as her hair grows very slow and is quite thin, but I was just wondering if these would be too strong for her. What age do you recommend for these vitamins? Would she be too young? Kristina
Answer: Kristina - The product is recommended at one tablet of each per day for anyone over four years of age. Many of our customers are teenagers who have an increased need for nutritional supplementation due to the growth demands of their rapid metabolisms. Thank you for your interest in Head Start ®
Question: Hi ....I just started using head start about 4 days ago....and I it looks like my hair might be shedding. is this normal??? Matt
Answer: Matt - If you mean should your hair loss increase, rather than decrease, the answer is no. If you mean something different by the term "shedding", please explain. If you bought Head Start ® to slow or stop hair loss, you may just be witnessing the last of the situation you had before, with the improvement yet to come as the Head Start ® nutrients are distributed on a daily basis throughout your system. Head Start ® should, over the course of the first one to two months, slow and eventually stop any excessive loss (more than 75-100 hairs daily) and return you to a more normal cycle of natural ongoing hair regrowth. We always recommend using the product for two to four months in order to see the maximum long-term potential benefit. Patience is important as the product works to provide HairCare From The Inside Out. Head Start ®
Question: I have been taking your hair vitamins for some time. My hair continues to be dry and has some breakage without the use of hair dryers or curling irons of any type. Can you tell me the difference from using your products- nutrition, protein and vitamins and the product hair formula 37? I would appreciate some information. Shelly
Answer: Shelly - The nutritional supplements will not generally effect the dryness of your scalp. This is something you may address with either of our shampoo and conditioner products. The VITAMINS, PROTEIN and NUTRiTiON tablets will help you grow your hair longer, stronger, thicker, healthier, shinier and faster with less breakage and reduced fallout - for a better looking head of hair. The moisture factor depends on which shampoo and conditioner you regularly use and whether each is returning moisture to the hair and scalp as they should. Breakage may eventually stop after six to eight months on Head Start ® but if your scalp and hair are left too dry after washing the culprit may be your shampoo or conditioner. Hair Formula 37 is a knockoff of Head Start ® and which actually uses some of our research publication on their website as their own. We do not know what is in their product. Head Start ®
Question: I am keen to know your products because of my thinning hair and wish to find some details from you. I wonder do you answer customer questions or feedback to them when I have questions & inquiry ... I like to know what are the amount of tablets to be taken for the begining when I start & and also not sure what are the shipping cost if I chose items no 200 for two sets or more. I hope I can hear from you soon because I will definite try to buy from you because I have never buy any things from the internet concern and wish you reply me! Best Regards, George (Singapore)
Answer: When using our Head Start ® Nutritional HairCare System, Phase 1 VITAMINS, Phase 2 PROTEIN and Phase 3 NUTRiTiON For Your Hair tablets, you may find best results with a daily program of one tablet each of the VITAMINS and PROTEIN taken with breakfast (AM), and one tablet of NUTRiTiON taken with your evening meal (PM) or at bedtime. This spreads the nutrients out more evenly through the day and helps maintain a steady blood level and metabolic availability of all the vitamins, minerals and amino-acids necessary for healthy hair cell production and growth. If you choose to remain with the basic Head Start ® two tablets daily plan, just take one tablet each of Phase 1 VITAMINS and Phase 2 PROTEIN every morning with your first (AM) meal. They should be taken at the same time as they are designed to work together. Head Start ®
Question: Hello, I have a question - I have all 3 of the vitamins and I'm going to start taking daily but what I want to know is the only hair that should grow will be on my head not on my face or legs or where ever else correct? Also is it ok to take 3 in the morning and 3 at night? Will there be any side effects?
Answer: The only hair follicles which will grow longer are those which are supposed to do so, that being the ones on your head. You will probably find that your nails grow stronger and longer as well as they are the same type of keratin and are also genetically programmed by your body to grow in length and strength. Three in the AM and three in the PM are quite alright, we just recommend you not exceed a total of 10,000IU of vitamin A each day, and there are just 5,000IU in the Phase 1 and none in the other two, so two of each daily is fine. We are not aware of any adverse side-effects to the daily use of our product and would have heard if there were any following over thirty-five years of marketing the formulas. You may wish to check out some of our customers' testimonials. Thank you for using Head Start ®
Question: Dear Headstart, I am really excited about your vitamins. I have tried a couple of other brands but have not received the results I am looking for I am leaning toward trying the Head Start program, but I have one question. Is the niacin content in Phase 1 Vitamins, nicotinic acid or niacinamide? Thank you, kasey
Answer: KC - We use the Niacin (Nicotinic Acid) form of vitamin B3 in our Phase 1 and Phase 3 formulae because it functions as a peripheral vasodilator like minoxidil. It works for hair growth because of this effect, while the niacinamide form of B3 does not. As noted on our website, Head Start ® utilizes niacin, a natural peripheral vasodilator which, like minoxidil, serves to deliver more nutrients to your hair, allowing it to grow and develop as strong and healthy as your own body's metabolism will allow. Thank you for your interest in Head Start ®

Question: Query on the intake of Head Start Vitamins and Regular Daily Vitamins Dear Sir/Madam, I have recently started taking Head Start, Phase 1, 2 and 3, i.e. Vitamins, Protein and Nutrition, in addition to using the shampoo and conditioner. I previously was taking my regular vitamins purchased from GNC, which included the Women's Ultra Mega Dietary Supplement and Evening Primrose Oil. I was also taking Gentle Iron by Solgar. Can I take my regular vitamins in addition to taking my Head Start pack or should I cease taking my regular vitamins because there is sufficient ingredients that I need in the Head Start to serve as a daily vitamin? I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience and thank you for your assistance. Belinda (Hamilton Bermuda)
Answer: We cannot speak to the other supplements you mention, but we always advise that for best results the VITAMINS and PROTEIN should be taken together, one of each every morning; and one NUTRiTiON taken in the evening. This provides the full range of nutrients to the hair follicle throughout the day and overnight as well. The daytime dosage is just to keep your body levels current with nutrient demands of your daily activities. The nighttime booster dosage is important as this is the time your body does most of its cellular restoration.
The products may be taken daily for extended periods without adverse effect. Many of our customers have taken the recommended daily dosage for decades. We only caution people that taking excessive amounts of vitamin A can have an adverse, rather than beneficial effect on hair growth, and not to exceed 10,000IU daily. you'll have to check your other supplements' labels regarding how many IU of A their products contain.
Insofar as the results achieved are concerned, most people report that their excessive hairloss stopped. Some report regrowth and strengthening, but many are happy just to have slowed or stopped the fallout. Improvement can be gradual and slow when evaluated on a day to day basis, but over time most people find they keep their hair longer and it stays healthier than it might otherwise have.
Quote from our website: "Most people using Head Start ® find that they no longer need to take a separate daily MultiVitamin formula since our three phases together provide the full range of supplementation they were getting from their Multi but with the added advantage that the Head Start ® ingredients are also geared for greater benefit to the hair follicles than are basic over-the-counter MultiVitamin tablets. In this manner you save the extra cost of the duplication of ingredients from the daily Multi you may have been purchasing before through daily use of the Head Start ® Nutritional HairCare System." Hope this answers your questions. Head Start ®
Question: What is the reason for nails flattening? Does it have a connection to a health issue? Thanks, Maggie
Answer: It may be that you would benefit from increased iron and multi-vitamins containing niacin (vitamin B3). Try our ComboPak #123 Head Start ® VITAMINS, PROTEIN and NUTRiTiON For Your Hair which is a full two months' supply of all three supplements for just $37 including postage. Iron deficiency and poor peripheral circulation can both contribute to this problem. You may wish to consult your physician for more specific information regarding your own health and what may be causing your metabolism to manifest such a symptom. Thank you for your interest in Head Start ®
Question: Head Start Vitamins i bought the head start vitamins at the CVS store in Bethel Ohio. I took them for over a week and then broke out into a rash all over my body from head to toe with severe itching. I discontinued use, but I read on this web site about niacin rush. Does that occur like this or is this something different? the rash lasted for about 45 minutes to an hour and itched a couple days. Thank you, Nancy
Answer: Nancy - It doesn't sound like a typical niacin rush, but then niacin can effect different people in different ways. Also, if you take the tablets alone without food or milk to cushion the effect when the tablets dissolve, the peripheral vasodilation can be more noticeable, which may be what happened in this instance since you had used them for a week without the rash and itching you describe. It could be you are reacting to something in the tablets, or to something else in your diet. Niacin rush is normally seen within ten to fifteen minutes and normally fades away after a half-hour or so. You will find it described in the literature which is packed in each package as well as on our website. If you mail us the bottles you purchased, we will have the lot numbers examined to see if there have been any other reports of excessive reaction to the same production batches. Also, we will return a fresh package to you of newer bottles from different production lots to see whether they are more easily tolerated. If your symptoms persist, you should consult your physician to determine if you have a specific allergic response to whatever is causing the symptoms you describe. In our experience it is out of the range of a typical niacin rush and may be caused by something different, but then you may just be more sensitive than others to vitamin B3. Thank you, Head Start ®
Question: Recommended Dosage for your HeadStart Vitamins for your Hair One of the testimonials I read recommended to take Phase 1, 2, and 3 in the morning and again in the evening. Do you concur with this person's recommendation or do your recommend staying with the dosage you have recommended on the bottles? I would appreciate a reply. Thank you. Shirl
Answer: Shirley - Many customers write in to tell us of their success with Head Start ®. The letter you refer to is acceptable as an alternative dosage regimen as the total amount of Vitamin A does not exceed 10,000IU daily (there is just 5,000IU in the Phase 1 tablet). Given that, there is no risk of an overload of fat soluble vitamins from this particular dosage. Some people require more supplementation than others; it is simply a matter of individual needs being met. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®
Question: I will never order from you again because of your return policy. Laura
Answer: Laura - Thank you. We have noted your file for no future shipments, as requested. We're not certain what you don't like about a policy which allows you to try a product for up to four months and still be able to return it for a 100% refund, but that's OK. We gave you a second refund, even though your order did not qualify for one, only an exchange for an item of equal value. If that's what made you mad, we're very sorry. We simply tried to point out that you had ordered an item which you knew you could not take, and which of course we had no way of knowing you could not take - so we sent it. Under our standard replacement offer, we would normally have shipped you a different product of equal value in exchange. However, since you had requested a refund, we gave you one out of courtesy. That's actually pretty accommodating on our part. Most businesses we're aware of stick to their published returns policies, and don't try to be flexible for their customers as we did in your case. We won't make that mistake again. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®
Question: Aluminum? I've noticed that your Protein For Your Hair, Phase 2 product includes aluminum in its list of incredients. Could you please confirm this for me? Thank you. Paul
Answer: The aluminum noted is a trace (almost unmeasurable) amount found as a natural component of brewer's (primary dried) yeast, which we use as a source of essential and non-essential amino-acids to assist in cellular growth and development. It is a non-toxic amount and is the same as is found in brewer's yeast used in bread or beer, among many other dietary sources. The amount of this trace mineral varies depending on the soil used to grow the grains used in the production of yeast. The protein tablet contains about as much aluminum as it does gold or silver, which amount is negligible. Measurable amounts of aluminum are normally found in antacids such as Di-Gel, Gaviscon, Gelusil, Maalox, Mylanta, Wingel etc, and in consumer products such as astringents, buffered aspirin, food additives, and antiperspirants. The aluminum content of one adult dose of Maalox, for example, is 440-880mg. Most people ingest 5-10mg daily of aluminum from normal dietary sources. Any quantity of aluminum in our tablets could only be measured in ppm (parts per million). In response to your inquiry, we are having the raw material tested to determine the exact amount of trace aluminum present, if any. Trace elements are not normally included in the Analysis Certificates (spec sheets) on raw materials, but we felt it best to get an exact answer for you. According to the manufacturer: "All yeast powders are suitable for vegetarians and have been granted GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) status." If your concern is too much aluminum in your diet, ingestion of calcium, magnesium and zinc (also found in the protein tablet) can help to protect against aluminum accumulation. Accordingly, excessive use of antacids should be avoided, not only because of possible aluminum toxicity, but the danger of masking symptoms of other disease processes. We will send you the results of the analysis in about two weeks when we receive it from the prime manufacturer. Thank you for your interest in Head Start ®

Question: We have used Pectin for cholesterol reduction very happily for a number of years now. The serum cholesterol has dropped dramatically, on a regimen of both prescription drug and Pectin. However, I recently had a heart cath, and they report considerable plaque in my arteries. In reviewing the literature, I found an article or two in the New England JM referring to reduction of plaque through a combination of 1 mg folate, 400 mcg vitamin B12 and 10 mg B6 daily. Is that a compounding you can provide? Bob
Answer: Bob - We do not have a formula which meets these criteria. Our Head Start ® Nutritional HairCare System (#123) provides just 600mcg of folate daily, 9mg of B12 and 2mg of B6. Our VitaMan ® (#129) provides 50mcg of B12 and 25mg of B6, but just 400mcg of folate. The amounts you are seeking are likely available, but we're not certain where. Thank you for using Head Start ®
Question: Advice please - Can you please tell me which of your vitamin products is best suited to repel mosquitos - I am told that vitamin B or garlic is a good deterrent, but, maybe you have a better product for this purpose. Thanks, Steve
Answer: Steve - Sorry, we have nothing to repel mosquitos. I'd recommend garlic tablets. B-Complex vitamins are said to repel mosquitos due to their odor as excreted in the sweat, but we have no information to confirm that. Thank you for your interest in Head Start ® Vitamins
Question: hi, im wondering if I can take my daily vitamin mineral supplement along with these or does this take care of everything? thanks, Joshua
Answer: Joshua - Here's information from the main product information page "Most people using Head Start ® find that they no longer need to take a separate daily MultiVitamin formula since our three phases together provide the full range of supplementation they were getting from their Multi but with the added advantage that the Head Start ® ingredients are also geared for greater benefit to the hair follicles than are basic over-the-counter MultiVitamin tablets. In this manner you save the extra cost of the duplication of ingredients from the daily Multi you may have been purchasing before through daily use of the Head Start ® Nutritional HairCare System." If you do take another MultiVitamin tablet along with the Head Start ® system, we recommend you not exceed a daily total of 10,000IU of vitamin A. Our Phase 1 VITAMINS contain 5,000IU, so if your other MultiVitamin contains 5,000IU or less you are safely within the acceptable range. While essential to the hair follicles, too much vitamin A, over 20,000IU or so daily, can build up in your system over time and have an adverse effect on hair growth and condition. Your order was sent via PRIORITY Mail today and should arrive at your location within 2-3 days. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®

Question: Dear Sirs, I am a 25-year old male from Greece, a very stressful person and facing hair loss for the past 20 months now. I've used propecia for 4 months, all it just gave me was acne break-outs and dare to say, it made my problem worse, so i had to quit it. Do you think your Head Start Vitamins can be of benefit for me? I believe my problem is attributed to stress and poor blood circulation due to the tension on my scalp area. I will be interested in ordering your 3 phase-4 months supply, just to give it a try... Can you please write me how much is the shipping cost to Greece for a 4- and for a 6-months supply, in order to know what should I consider. Please mention, how long does it take for the order to arrive in Greece. Your money-back garantee is valid also for those outside the US? Hoping for a reasonable shipping cost. I thank you in advance. Antonio

Question: Does your product work for men with receding hairlines. Also, how long does it usually take to see results. Thanks, Leon
Answer: The product works for anyone with hair problems of a non-genetic origin. We recommend you give the product about four to six months to work properly, but most people find their hair-loss stops or is significantly slowed within the first couple of weeks' use. You can review the testimonials of many of our customers. We recommend the use of our SPECIAL #200 Head Start ® Nutritional HairCare System - Four Months' Supply for $51.25.

Question: I have a few questions. 1) What's the difference between head start vitamins and propecia? 2) I am taking all 3 phases - When should I see results?Jesse
Answer: Jesse - As you just added the Phase 3 NUTRiTiON last week, we would recommend you give the regimen about four to six months. Take the VITAMINS and PROTEIN (one of each) each morning and one NUTRiTiON at night. This will provide all the nutrients your body needs to promote healthy hair growth and condition. It works slowly because it works from the inside out to improve hair strength and prevent excessive hair loss and breakage. Propecia is a prescription product having certain unwanted side-effects, such as ED, but which is intended to do the same job as Head Start ® Nutritional HairCare. Head Start ® works without any known adverse side-effects. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®
Question: (via voicemail) Hey, where's my order...
Answer: Your recent order for Head Start ® products was mailed this afternoon. The delay, if any occurred, was due to our having been shut down Thursday afternoon by the arrival of Hurricane Katrina. The damage locally was widespread but our office and warehouse were not damaged and the products remained well protected from the elements. Look for delivery of your order before this coming weekend. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®
Question: i got a hair cut and it was too short!!! I am interested in buying the head start vitamins but i also have a thyroid condition. Is it safe to take your product? How long will it make my hair grow withing a month? I am DESPERATE!!!! Foxy
Answer: Foxy - We are not aware of any ingredient in our VITAMINS, PROTEIN or NUTRiTiON which should not be taken under any thyroid condition, but you should always check with your doctor or with the pharmacist where you obtain your thyroid medication be be certain there would be no contraindications, since we don't know your condition or regimen of therapy. The rate of growth will depend on your own metabolism, but it will certainly be faster than without the extra nutritional supplementation. Many people find that instead of a quarter inch a month, their hair grows up to an inch a month, but we cannot predict growth rates for any individual. We recommend trying the product for four months and deciding whether it is for you. It is guaranteed 100% Thank you for your interest in Head Start ®
Question: (via voicemail) Why can't I find your products in the stores anymore? Leff and Lenora
Answer: We received your voice mail about our product. We no longer sell to drug chains, even though we did so for over 25 years. We've gone back to direct sales to our customers to keep our retail price low and avoid stores which don't rotate stock to maintain freshness of the goods. We ship PRIORITY mail within 24 hours and you can expect delivery within 2-3 days of ordering with a credit card. You may send a check or money order, but delivery will generally take an extra week or so in that case. Thank you for your interest in Head Start ®

Question: I just received an email stating a credit of $12.10 was applied to my credit card. The Email never explained why, so my question is, Why? Michael
Answer: You ordered two #123 ComboPaks for a total of $63.90. The SPECIAL #200 which you normally order contains 2x#123 but costs you $51.80, or $12.10 less. With the #123 you save $5.90 each, but with the #200 you save $27.90, so we credited you back the difference. Your order will ship on Tuesday and should arrive at your location 2-3 days later. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®
Question: i still didn't get my credit back into my account - whats going on here? Ruth
Answer: Ruth - We received your return with your explanation "I can't take these!" on Tuesday and credited your Visa card account the same day for the full value of the merchandise ordered. We would have sent you an email confirmation but the email you provided with your order was invalid, so we mailed your credit receipt to the same address that we sent the original order to. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®
Question: Dear Staff, I have a question ,please give me the answer. I would like to get some item at hotel. Could you send them to Hotel? Is it possible? Then How much is the delivery cost? Also How long does it take? Hotel ; Hyatt Regency Guam Thank you Yoshita (Japan)

Question: I have used your hair vitamins off and on for years. They are the best. I have gotten many of my friends using them. I'm having a problem finding them in drugstores. I don't have a credit card or debit card but would like to order them. Please send me information on how I can order your products. Thanks, Georgia
Answer: We no longer sell our products to chain stores. However, we have been shipping directly to our customers since 1972. You may mail a check or money order to the address shown at the top of each of our web pages and enclose a note (or the Order Form printout from our website) indicating which items you want. Just add $4.75 to the total cost of the order and we will ship within 24 hours of our receipt of your order. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®
Question: Hi, I was interested in your product. I have very thin hair and would like something that will make it thicker. I was just wondering, I take a lot of other vitamins as well (zinc, chromium, iron, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin, E, B-complex) will that have any effect on head start? And also, does it only work for the time that you do take them? say if you were to take them for 6 months and then stop taking them, will your hair go back to the way it was before? thank you for your time
Answer: The supplements you mention will not interfere with Head Start ®. You may find that discontinuing the vitamin A and B-complex you will save some money and avoid unnecessary duplication of those components of Head Start. You will find that your hair will continue to improve over time and will stay healthier longer if Head Start is used every day. If you have a condition corrected by Head Start ®, discontinuing use will often result in your hair returning to its former unhealthy appearance. The choice is yours. There is no magic or permanent solution to this type of problem, but it can be reversed if you stick with the program. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®
Question: hello ... i would like to know if your head start vitamins are all natural ingredients? since i take a multiple vitamin, i just wanted to make sure that mixing all of these together or even spacing them out during the day would be safe to do ... i'd like to place an order shortly, but there was no mention of your vitamins being all natural ... thanks ... george
Answer: Hi George - Here is the information you requested from our website "You'll find nothing included in any of the Head Start ® Nutritional HairCare System tablets which doesn't have a sound physical, metabolic or nutritional reason for being there. There are no herbs or ground peppers in our products, only completely safe nutrients which are scientifically proven to be involved in hair keratin production. Head Start ® VITAMINS For Your Hair, PROTEIN For Your Hair and NUTRiTiON For Your Hair Tablets are all natural formulae and are free of sugar, salt, starch, wax, coloring, artificial flavoring and preservatives. All three formulae derived from natural sources." Hope this answers your question. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®
Question: hi, thanks for replying so quickly, it's greatly appreciated. so for four months worth of vitamins including vitamins, nutrition and protein of sufficient amounts? im a little confused about the phases though, can i get a bit more clarification with the phase 1, phase 2 and phase 3? also how much would my hair averagely grow a month using all three tablets? finally is it possible to overdose on these tablets or will my hair just grow at an extremely fast rate? thank you, regards dana (australia)
Answer: Dana - Please note the information we sent explains use of the products "you may find best results with a daily program of one tablet each of the VITAMINS and PROTEIN taken with breakfast (AM), and one tablet of NUTRiTiON taken with your evening meal (PM) or at bedtime." There are no known adverse side-effects with the product when taken as directed. We have customers who have been taking our product for years with complete satisfaction in the results. You may check some of our customers' testimonials. The package we recommended to you contains a four months' supply of all three Phases of the System (120 tablets of each Phase with one tablet of each taken daily). Most people who use the product over time find their hair can grow between a half-inch and an inch a month, but everyone's metabolism is different so results always vary. The best way to find whether the product is for you is to try it for four months and judge the results for yourself. Thank you for your interest in Head Start ®
Question: I was just wondering if your product will have an affect on facial and/or body hair? Jessica
Answer: Jessica - Head Start ® works to assist hair growth and development by providing extra blood supply, nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicles. However, if the specific hair follicle is not genetically programmed to grow longer and thicker, it will not do so. We have been selling our Head Start ® Nutritional HairCare System for 35 years now, and have not encountered complaints of that nature so we assume they don't happen. What we get are compliments about the beneficial effects of our product on peoples' hair, skin and nails. Here is the link to our customers' testimonials. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®
Question: Greetings Headstart, I've always used your phase I, 2, and 3 vitamins, and the results were amazing! However, I do experience thin hair loss these past few years. I understand that the products I use can help me with this hair loss. But my question is, what do you offer for hair loss, period! Such as a stand alone product and not combined along with something else such as my phase 1, 2 and 3 program. thank you in advance. ps: my package will be in this week, hopefully. Francine
Answer: Francine - The fact that you are experiencing hair loss these past few years may have something to do with the fact that your last purchase of Head Start ® was about five years ago. For the products to work effectively you should take them every day, VITAMINS and PROTEIN in the AM and NUTRiTiON in the PM. We strongly encourage you to get back on the program and stick with it daily - the results will come with time. As we say: Stop Excessive Hair Loss with HEAD START ® GROW YOUR HAIR longer, stronger, thicker, healthier, shinier and faster with less breakage and reduced fallout for a better looking head of hair. Hope this answers your question. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®
Question: Hi. I'm a 20 year old female who recently started losing quite a bit of hair in the past few months. I've been to the doctor and they have not a been helpful at all. I came across your products while brousing the internet and they caught my attention. I was wondering if these products could be effected, hopefully very effective, on someone like me. I was thinking about ordering the Original HELSINKI FORMULA Scalp and Pore CLEANSER Overnight Lotion, The Original HELSINKI FORMULA Shampoo (since my hair is very thin and falling out), and the HAIR ReVitalizing CONDITIONER (to strenghten the cuticles of my hair. Am I making the right choices? Please e-mail me back as soon as possible so I can get to ordering! Thank you for your time! Lauren
Answer: Lauren - Our best advice is that your needs seems to be a classic requirement for improved nutritional supplementation of the hair follicles. Many people's first resort is for something to rub on the scalp on into the hair shaft, when the real problem lies within the scalp at the level where the hair shaft is produced, the follicle. When using our Head Start ® Nutritional HairCare System, Phase 1 VITAMINS, Phase 2 PROTEIN and Phase 3 NUTRiTiON For Your Hair tablets, you may find best results with a daily program of one tablet each of the VITAMINS and PROTEIN taken with breakfast (AM), and one tablet of NUTRiTiON taken with your evening meal (PM) or at bedtime.
This spreads the nutrients out more evenly through the day and helps maintain a steady blood level and metabolic availability of all the vitamins, minerals and amino-acids necessary for healthy hair cell production and growth. In order to receive optimum results from the Head Start ® formulae, you should take them every day to provide a constant source of complete nutrition to your hair follicles. Since the keratin building effect of these supplements occurs at the root level below the scalp, the portions of each hair shaft nearest the scalp will be the first to show any improvement in their appearance and condition. Healthy hair generally averages about a half to an inch of new growth each month, so the length you normally wear your hair will determine about how much time it will take to have an overall beneficial effect on your hair's total appearance.
Remember, the process works from the inside out, so have patience during your first few months on the program. If you do not feel you are deriving benefit in ninety days of use, it may be that supplementation is not going to be of direct benefit to you personally from a cosmetic or appearance standpoint. Each individual has a differing level of need for dietary supplements, and some have a more noticeable benefit than others. There is only one way to determine if supplements will help you personally, and that is to try them for awhile and make a decision for yourself as to whether the benefit derived is worth the effort taken to achieve it. If you want to use the topicals along with the tablets, they're designed to work together. Otherwise, our recommendation is to begin with the tablets where your greatest improvement is likely. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®
Question: Can you send me 4 order forms? My sisters don't want to use their credit cards. Thank you! Tiffany
Answer: Tiffany - We don't really use printed Order Forms any longer. Most people not wishing to use a credit card online just print off the computer what they want and mail it along with a check or money order to the address shown at the top of each of our web pages. Or, an online Order Form is available through a link at the bottom of each page of our website. I will note for the record, however, that we have been in business for 35 years, and in over twelve years of online sales, no credit card submitted to us for a purchase has ever been misused fraudulently. Your sisters may also use a copy of this email to print out and indicate which item they're ordering. Your sisters might find that by combining their orders they can take advantage of the SPECIAL #212 which gives six ComboPaks for less than $22 each. Hope this answers your question. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®
Question: Hi, I live in Weston, Florida (zip code: 33327). Are there any stores where I can buy your products? Please let me know. Thanks in advance, John-Paul
Answer: John-Paul - We no longer sell our product to any chain store operations. We decided several years ago to stop shipping chains, but to continue shipping directly to our customers as we have done since 1972. Sorry for the inconvenience, but we believe you will find our prices and service via PRIORITY Mail to be convenient and dependable, and the product factory fresh. When you purchase six bottles assorted on one order, you pay for four and get two FREE, getting the price per bottle of 60s down to under $8; about $2 less than Walgreens and CVS used to sell it for. Hope this answers your question. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®
Question: WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF YOUR PRODUCTS FOR HAIR ? TIM
Answer: Tim - Each double-sealed bottle has a shelf life of three years. You will notice on the bottom of each package the advice "For Maximum Freshness, use before date on bottom of bottle". The tag on the bottom of the bottle gives a Lot number and a Use By date of Month/Year. You should also heed the website advice on this point (and noted in each product insert) "For Maximum Freshness USE BY Dating" On Each Bottle Our Phase 1, 2 & 3 For Your Hair formulae are derived from natural sources and coded with a "USE BY" date to ensure the freshness and potency of the tablets you take. Every bottle of product contains a small desiccant bag which absorbs moisture to protect the tablets and keep them dry. Once a bottle has been opened and the double seals broken, you should use all of the tablets within sixty to ninety days to avoid spoilage and loss of potency, which can happen if the bottles sit around open and unused for extended periods of time." Hope this answers your question. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®
Question: Could you please advise me some products for, anti-baldness and anti-hair weakness and anti-oily hair? Because I want to make my order on the basis of your valuable advice ... are these products 100% safe for health and skin? Do you add any chemical material to your product ? As far as we are concerned, shouldn't a product that is 100% vnatural have an unlimited usage life ? Thanks in advance fou your important opinions, Best regards... ?brahim (TURKEY)
Answer: Ibrahim - We recommend you begin with the Head Start ® Nutritional HairCare System of Phase 1 VITAMINS, Phase 2 PROTEIN and Phase 3 NUTRiTiON For Your Hair Tablets in the #200 SPECIAL four months' supply. GROW YOUR HAIR longer, stronger, thicker, healthier, shinier and faster with less breakage and reduced fallout for a better looking head of hair. VITAMINS & PROTEIN each AM - NUTRiTiON each PM - When using our Head Start ® Nutritional HairCare System, Phase 1 VITAMINS, Phase 2 PROTEIN and Phase 3 NUTRiTiON For Your Hair tablets, you may find best results with a daily program of one tablet each of the VITAMINS and PROTEIN taken with breakfast (AM), and one tablet of NUTRiTiON taken with your evening meal (PM) or at bedtime.

Thank you for your interest in Head Start ®
Question: Good day, at first thanks you for you reply and advice ... but i still have some questions ... of course users of this product can not understand if these products are 100% natural ... but why does not this product have an infinite usage life instead 3 years? Does this product have any adverse effects for health? if I want to order this product shuld I also order the ''zinc'' product? Your advises will help me to make my mind up and to decide to make my order, Thanks, Best regards Ibrahim (TURKEY)
Answer: Ibrahim - The products carry a three year shelf life because vitamins lose potency over time, and after three years the strength of the formulas will diminish, even though the tablets themselves may be safely consumed so long as the factory seals are unbroken. Tablets older than three years just do not work as well as fresh ones. We recommend you begin with the three products we suggested as they include all the nutrients your body needs to produce healthy hair, including the zinc you mention. You can always add other formulas later as you wish. Thank you for your interest in Head Start ®
Question: These vitamins were recommended by a hair stylist for my 9 year old. I did not see an age recommendation on your website for these vitamins. Are they appropriate for a 9 year old female? Please advise. Thanks, Tarji
Answer: Tarji - The products are safe for use in the tablet dosage supplied for anyone four years of age and older. This information is on the labels of the products; but you're right, not on the website. Thank you for your interest in Head Start ®
Question: Thank you for your reply, and for the free bottle of vitamins ... much appreciated. The parcel did arrive but couldn't be delivered because there was a £9.52 customs handling charge on it. I had to go to the post office and pay this amount to collect it, which I wasn't pleased about as I hadn't budgeted for the extra £9.52. I thought that the postage had been paid and this would cover all costs? Tania (England)
Answer: Tania - Indeed, the postage was paid. We have no control of the customs offices in each individual country we send products to regarding duties or fees. Some in England say they are never charged duty, others say they are always charged. Still others report that sometimes they have to pay duty and sometimes they don't. We can't really figure it out, and all countries seem to be the same, particularly Canada which is impossible to fathom.

Question: Hallo, yesterday I become the 3rd box by the postman. Now I am happy because the 12 months are complete but I am missing the free samples of other Head-Start Products I asked you by my first mail. Have you no free samples for test? Regards Ralf (Germany)
Answer: Ralf - Actually, we don't make sample sizes. With all of our products, they must be used for a couple of months to see results, so a one or two day sample would be of no use. Sorry. We're very pleased that Customs decided to deliver the third and last package, although a little late. Enjoy the products in good health. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®
Question: Good Evening I am 22 and I have shoulder length hair but my hair is very fine and I am losing a lot of hair at the front of my head for some reason. I have noticed that I have been losing alot more hair just recently than usual. I have been to my doctor and he just said that its one of them things in life and didn't help me out in any way possible. This has been really getting me down the last couple of months and have looked on the internet for some sort of product / vitamin to take to help get my hair back into shape and thicken it up I have looked at your website and read your feedback and am very impressed but do not understand how or what tablets I should be taking, also if I discontinue use will I start to lose my hair again? look forward to your response kind regards Katy :-)
Answer: Katy - Many people feel the way you do about this type of temporary hair loss, and as you can tell from the testimony on our website of hundreds of people who have used our products, it does work well for plenty of folks. If the underlying cause of the loss is not corrected naturally or with time, the hair loss may return, but not necessarily. Many people find that once the product has been used for 4, 6 or 12 months that the problem is resolved and the hair returns to its natural, lustrous condition.
We recommend you begin with SPECIAL #200: VITAMINS For Your Hair 120s; PROTEIN For Your Hair 120s; and NUTRiTiON For Your Hair 120s; a four months' supply for $51.25 (You Save $25.20). When using our Head Start ® Nutritional HairCare System, Phase 1 VITAMINS, Phase 2 PROTEIN and Phase 3 NUTRiTiON For Your Hair tablets, you may find best results with a daily program of one tablet each of the VITAMINS and PROTEIN taken with breakfast (AM), and one tablet of NUTRiTiON taken with your evening meal (PM) or at bedtime. This spreads the nutrients out more evenly through the day and helps maintain a steady blood level and metabolic availability of all the vitamins, minerals and amino-acids necessary for healthy hair cell production and growth.
Our Guarantee is that you may use the full four months' supply and if at the end of that time you are not happy with the results from the use of our Head Start ® Nutritional HairCare System, we will refund the full purchase price of the products once you mail the empty bottles back to us. That's how confident we are that our Head Start ® Nutritional HairCare products will work for you.
Questions (4): Couple of questions. Praveen
Question 1. Is there any side effects with these medicines.
Answer 1: We are not aware of any side-effects.
Question 2. Do you think these medicines will not only stop hair loss will also help in Regrow the hair where hair is not there.
Answer 2: The products work for not only stopping hair loss, but in many cases actually allowing your follicles to regrow lost hair, depending on the cause of the hair loss. Please read the testimonials for more information about how the products works for other Head Start ® clients. Click here to read the testimonials
Question 3. What if the hair loss is because of hereditary
Answer 3: Just because you are prone to lose hair due to hereditary factors, it does not necessarily mean that the cause is genetic shutdown of the follicles. As you will see on the website, it can be many causes which are also possibly hereditary but not genetically irreversible. This is the reason we offer a four-month, money-back guarantee so that you can determine for yourself whether the products will benefit you personally.
Question 4. How to buy that SPECIAL #200 pack
Answer 4: You click on the page link and order it online. Click here to order
Question: Hello, I would like to know if your products are similar to monoxidil in that no matter how long you use them you will see great results, but once you stop using the product, you will continue to lose your hair. Thanks, L Smith
Answer: It is true that with both the drug Minoxidil and Niacin (vitamin B3), both peripheral vasodilators, many people find that when they stop use of the product their hair loss problem returns. While this happens in some, but not all, situations, the long term benefit of supplementation with the Head Start ® VITAMINS For Your Hair Nutritional HairCare System is that there are dozens of added ingredients in the three tablets which serve many other beneficial functions within your body in addition to the increased strength and rate of hair growth.
In any event, with Head Start ® you can accomplish the desired result for less than 50c a day (as little as 33c daily with the larger SPECIALS) and not only grow your hair longer, stronger, thicker, healthier, shinier and faster with less breakage and reduced fallout - Your skin, nails and overall metabolism in general will derive positive benefit from the vitamins, minerals and amino-acids contained in each tablet.
Head Start ® is the least expensive most efficient way to overall healthier hair without the undesired side-effects many people experience with the use of the drug minoxidil. Niacin, as found in Head Start ®, is a vitamin without these negative side-effects but which increases the blood supply to the scalp, delivering increased nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicles for more efficient hair keratin production. Many of our customers use the products daily for years, while others only take them occasionally when they find the condition of their hair has begun to suffer due to stress, diet, hormonal changes or other factors which can negatively impact hair health. In any event, ours is a win-win system, with benefit all around. Thank you for ordering Head Start ®
Question: After reading several testimonials on your website, I am curious as to whether I'd have to continue using your hair vitamin regimine indefinitely or if my hair will fall out if I were to stop using it. Some of the testimonials tend to read that way. Cindy
Answer: Cindy - Some people find that they can use the product for a relatively short period of time and then discontinue use without any problems recurring. These customers may purchase once or twice in a year, then have a relatively long break before reordering. Often, when the cause is transitory such as with hormonal changes due to pregnancy or the side-effect of certain medications or with calorie restricted diets, the products are only needed in the short-term. Others find that Head Start ® does not cure the underlying cause of their hair loss, but that it stops it and often results in hair re-growth. For these people the continued use is of long term benefit. For all of them the result is the same - they are so happy their hair stopped falling out when nothing else worked that they are glad to keep on using the tablets. No one we've spoken to said they'd rather be bald than keep using Head Start ®. Hope this answers your question. Thank you for your interest in Head Start ®
Question: Avoiding Phase 2 : I purchased your Head Start ® Two Months' ComboPak, but did not know about the Phase 2 containing brewers yeast, which I cannot take. Can you recommend which tablets I can use? Nita
Answer: Nita - You can take Phase 1 in the AM and Phase 3 in the PM without using Phase 2 or getting any brewers yeast. Send back the two bottles of PROTEIN (opened and unopened) and we'll send you a 3rd VITAMIN and a 3rd NUTRiTiON to make your cost per bottle the same as with the SPECIAL #200. When you reorder, just ask for SPECIAL #204 with is VITAMINS 180s and NUTRiTiON 180s (3 bottles of each). Head Start ®
Question: Your explanation on the internet ad of interaction with drugs mentions interactions between grapefruit and drugs, but does not discuss such interactions with grapefruit PECTIN and drugs, specifically. If grapefruit pectin does interact with some drugs, would it be safe to take grapefruit pectin 4 or 5 hours following taking drugs? Dave
Answer: Dave - The information on the web pages is what we know in general about how grapefruit will enhance the performance of certain prescription drugs. Anything further would have to be obtained through consultation with your physician, pharmacist or health care provider. The pectin and grapefruit extract products would have the same effect in concert with certain prescription drugs but we cannot advise you in medical matters. We have been selling the grapefruit extract and grapefruit pectin products for some twenty-three years now, however, and have had no adverse comments from any of our customers. It's always a good idea to separate the consumption of supplements from prescriptions, generally one to two hours is sufficient, but your doctor or pharmacist can give you more specific guidelines based on your personal prescription profile.

Question: the following is a quote from your site: "Dr James Cerda['s] research included directly examining the insides of the pigs' aortas and arteries after they were slaughtered, which would be impossible to do with humans. Not many humans will volunteer for that!" what an ignorant statement. did the pigs volunteer for that? rebecca
Answer: Rebecca : Thank you for pointing this out. We did not write the statement, only quoted it from the book. We're not certain in what manner or on what basis the pigs were slaughtered, but most likely for food. Rashers of bacon, boiled ham or whatever. An unhappy fact of life for all concerned, especially the pigs.
If you don't eat meat, please accept our apologies for having offended your vegan sensibilities by posting the quote. In retrospect, it is understandable how some might be outraged by this statement, as you obviously are. However, if you enjoy bacon &/or ham with your eggs in the mornings, there is no to blame to cast save upon the consumer demand which drives our economy.
You may wish to take the matter up with the man who wrote the book which contains the quote you found so offensive: Robert E Kowalski, author of The Revolutionary Cholesterol Breakthrough : How to Eat Everything You Want and Have Your Heart Thank You for It" - he lives in California somewhere. There's a live link to his bio on the website page concerning our GreatFruit ® PECTIN products, just above where the quote appears.
In any event, we did not fund or promote the research. We only used the research data as one basis for what has proven to be a very valuable all-natural dietary supplement used to benefit many thousands of our customers over the past two decades, and which fits comfortably into a vegan lifestyle.

Question: Helsinki Shampoo - I have been using Helsinki formula shampoo for nearly twenty years, ordering ten to twelve bottles from Pantron One at a time. I have been trying to contact them as my last order is nearly exhausted, but have only reached a continuously busy 800 number. If your product is comparable, I am not adverse to ordering your product. Are you familiar with the Pantron One shampoo? Do you offer your shampoo at a case price, or multiple bottle discount? Please advise. Mark
Answer: Our product is similar in formulation to the Pantron I product. We introduced our formulations in 1979 and Pantron went into business in 1984 with a replication of our product which was chemically very close to ours. It is our understanding they are no longer in business. One bottle of Head Start ® Helsinki Formula Shampoo 8oz #014 is $11.95; five bottles cost $47.80; and twelve bottles cost $95.60.
