    Does anyone know of a good copper peptide shampoo that is readily available in most high street supermarkets/chemists?

    I've never used it - but American Crew's Revitalizing Daily Shampoo contains Copper Glutanate (sp?) - and is available at many hair salons (maybe some supermarkets).

    Maybe I should have added that I'm from the UK.

    that is not a copper peptide. copper peptides are stable near neutral pH. Folligen or AC spray, I forget which, was pH 6 when diluted with pH 5.5 water. So it probably was close to 7 before. You could add folligen to your shampoo, but unless the shampoo has a pH of at least 6, the folligen might break down. I doubt the AC shampoo changed it's pH. You could add folligen to that.

    You get better absorption if you just apply folligen after you shampoo, before your scalp is fully dry. If you leave it on 5 minutes, that is better than 5 minutes of shampoo. The shampoo is just nice because it is spread easier.

    yes it does. It has SOD, the really big CP that is 32000 daltons. You can buy SOD for $30 for a bottle of pills that you can dump into topicals. I don't know how well it dissolves, though. I doubt it penetrates as far as other CPs, but it should be very good for the surface of your skin.
