Thank you LDLD for your comments.
I went to your suggested website and my first reaction was to the “total babe” in the photo who says she has “40 years of experience” (she looks no older than 20!). I’m guessing that she started her career when she was MINUS-20-years-old?" Or then, maybe it’s the cream she’s selling? Yeah, my blood pressure went up, but mostly because of what she had written! he he he
The following is the email I sent her (that might also answer your question):
"I’m a well-known electrologist with 40 years of experience and three textbooks on the subject (translated version: the electrology text in Japan).
The notion that a hair (follicle) cannot be successfully treated by electrolysis in telogen stage is totally false. This is an OLD traditional (stupid) misconception that never seems to go away. My main text was published in 1991 that fully details this subject; yet the old myths continue on and on.
I hope you do a little more study before you reprint misinformation (misinformation that is actually stated in many textbooks). Two myths that abound are the “anagen only nonsense” and the “breaking down process.” Both of these “old wife’s tales” are excuses for substandard electrolysis work. Please consider editing the piece you have written.
Let me make this SIMPLE for you LDLD: a correctly treated follicle (by electrolysis) will NEVER again be able to grow another hair. And, that means “forever” … as long as you live: one “dead-ass” follicle … done, kaput, terminated and NO MORE HAIR PERIOD! Versteh?
And, a follicle can be successfully treated in ANY phase (anagen, catagen, telogen) as long as some sort of hair shaft is “pointing the way.” (I called this the “pathfinder” in my book; the term never caught on.)
About “rehashing?” Hummm, yep, I have been “rehashing” this now for 40 years. It’s sort of like “Creationists vs. Science.” I go with the science.
I talked to my old friend John Fantz about this. As usual, John had a great metaphor. John said: “Well, Bono, it’s like this. I can be 20-year-old or 90-years-old … if I walk out into traffic and get run over by a truck, I’m still dead!
