Because of this, there are endless products created to prevent or slow down a receding hairline. This review looks into Hair Essentials, a nutritional supplement for both men and women, to see if it fulfills its promise of reducing hair loss and restoring healthy hair growth. The company cites a study of its product that it sponsored which “indicate” the product is effective.
- Vitamins A, C, and E
- Herbs like saw palmetto, bamboo stem and leaf extract, horsetail, white lea, milk thistle, flax seed oil, black pepper, and rice bran among others.
Vitamin A is included to healthy hair by helping to decrease sebum buildup. Saw palmetto is said to reduce the production of DHT in the body, a hormone which causes hair follicles to shrink. Bamboo stem is a prime source of silica which plays a central role in the production and maintenance of several types of connective tissue, including hair.

In terms of customer feedback, the website is one of the few product-specific websites we have come across that actually posts negative customer reviews (along with the positive). This creates credibility regarding all the reviews. However, it’s hard to believe that over 3400 people had submitted reviews to the product website (at the time of writing) given that rarely does a product in this category, even on Amazon, garner more than a hundred customer reviews. And all the more so considering that there were no customer reviews on Amazon itself for this product. For what it’s worth, Hair Essentials tell us that its overall rating is four out of five stars from all these reviews.
Our Conclusive Review About Hair Essentials
Hair Essentials is packed with nutrients and herbs, and they seem to have done their homework regarding those they’ve included. Their money back guarantee is good, showing confidence in their product and giving a reasonable time period to test its effectiveness.
Still, users are divided on the effectiveness of this product. And, although the company cites the study it commissioned on its product as indicating it is effective, a close look at the study shows it was very small (26 participants), only included women and was not double-blind or placebo controlled.
