It was during a safari vacation in the early 1970's when
the elder Segal made his "discovery". He came
upon a number of tribes performing rituals and noticed that
one particular group had thick, strong, healthy heads of
hair. "I found out that this one group applied a mixture
of plants, roots & leaves to their heads and their faces
and would wait for the moon to come out," the elder
Segals explains. "The reason was that they felt that
the moon would absorb & cleanse their souls of all the
evil spirits through the medium of this earthy botanical
mixture. What they did'nt realize was that they were unknowingly
giving themselves the best hair & scalp treatment nature
has to offer.
Segal asked the tribe's chief to give him a bucket full
of the mixture which he took back to Cape Town where he
incorporated it into his scalp formulas, shampoos &
While the components were all from natural sources, the
exact ingredients remains a secret...a valuable one.
His new products met with surprising results with many
people reporting drastic reductions in hair loss and even
new hair growth. But as increasing political uncertainty
grew in South Africa, Segal decided it would be best for
his family to leave the country. "I was fortunate to
have access to my fathers formula," Darryl says. "And
as a pharmacist, and being fascinated with the results people
were receiving from the product for so many years, my life
long commitment to improve on the formula and make it available
to as many people as possible."
"It was very hard at the beginning," Darryl says.
"In a new country, we no longer had the status we achieved
in South Africa and had to let the product speak for itself."
Today these formulas are available in health food stores
under the name Herbal Glo & in salons under the name
Segals Solutions. Not only are these products sold across
North America, they are also distributed in many other countries
including Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia,
Kuwait, Singapore & Malaysia.
While the company makes no wild claims that it will grow
a new head of hair on its users, it has found that people
are getting different degrees of results. "Some people
get more dramatic results such as rapid hair growth within
3 to 4 months," says Darryl. "Others notice a
drastic reduction in hair loss. even to be able to keep
the hair one has means achieving results."
"When there is too much oil secreted, the follicles
become clogged up preventing hair growth." he says.
"By using our product you will not only clean out the
follicles, but also feed the hair roots with natural &
essential hair nutrients.
"People are looking for a natural alternative to surgery
and drug treatments, and we have adapted our formulas to
provide that," Darryl says. If you would like any further
