I’m personally thinking about DHT excess, as this appears in many women of all ages
Even though I 100% agree it’s an overpriced product you couldn’t really find its ingredients separately. Or at least, not the most important ones:
1) There’s a mix called Nutrafol Blend which contains several trademark ingredients. You can’t find this blend either alone or in another product, as it’s a specific ingredient.
The vitamins can indeed be found in other products or as multivitamins. But you would have to take several different pills, which isn’t worth the shot.
So even though it’s really overpriced for what it contains Nutrafol has a lot of ingredients you can’t find too easily elsewhere. That in case you were interesed in purchasing the compounds separately, which I doubt.
Anyway if you ever want a hair supplement and can’t afford going to Nutrafol again, I seriously recommend you Folexin. It did the same thing to my hair naughtydate.usa (it actually worked a bit better) and 3 months supply cost me about the same as 1 bottle of Nutrafol. So I saved a lot of money.
I’m very glad I found your site, Olly! I have been using Nutrafol for over a year, I’ve experienced at times faster growth speed and stronger nails, that’s all. I’ve begun to have more hair loss in the last few months (we all shed in the summer/change of seasons?) and now realize from reading your blog that maybe the 50 Plus formula (or maybe not since the dosage is a little bit higher) might’ve been in order? Very disappointed since at this point the expense is horrendous vs. the results for me (I purchase directly from them). I’m going to cancel and I appreciate your recommendation of Folexin. I’ve read a lot of negative reviews in the last year also but kept on hoping it would improve. Nature’s Bounty Extra Strength Hair Skin & Nails has been very highly recommended, have you or anyone else here had positive results with it? Just wondering, thanks again & take care.
So the question is what’s the cause behind your hair loss?
Hi Janie. First of all, Nutrafol doesn’t seem to be very helpful for your hair. In one year, you should have seen big improvements if it really worked. But as I said in my review, there are some people who don’t react too well to Nutrafol and this could be your case too.
The weird part is that you say it sometimes helped (in terms of growth), but then your hair started shedding again. I’m thinking that Nutrafol can’t really fight the cause behind your hair loss, it can only accelerate growth. I’ve suffered from it myself and it’s quite easy to treat with the right products.
1. Start using a supplement based on herbs like Saw Palmetto, Horsetail and Nettle. They are great against hair loss caused by DHT excess (especially Saw Palmetto).
Nutrafol does contain Saw Palmetto, but not in a high quantity. Plus, most of the other herbs it contains promote hair growth they don’t fight against shedding and DHT excess.
So I recommend you a supplement like Folexin or Kerotin Hair Growth. They both have the exact same formula, but Folexin costs half, so I think it’s a better deal. But I think this kind of formula would be a lot more helpful, since it has more varied herbs/ingredients and also pretty high dosages. When it comes to DHT excess, it’s a lot better than Nutrafol.
