My HairOmega Supplement Review (2020) – Scam Or Legit?

My HairOmega Supplement Review (2019) - Scam Or Legit?

 

It’s time for my HairOmega Supplement review – a hair supplement that has been quite popular lately.

That’s not surprising, since it looks really promising:

  • quality formula
  • decent price
  • many satisfied users

So does this supplement really work?

Or do its positive reviews try to hide the fact that it’s a scam?

I tried to dig deep into this product and find out the truth behind.

Note: This review is based on my opinion + research on HairOmega.

 

So Let’s Get To The Review

Full Name: HairOmega from DrFormula’s 

Versions: There are 2 different ones:

  • DHT Blocker
  • Hair, Skin & Nails Formula

The first one is specifically designed for hair (both loss and growth).

The second one is more of a general formula for healthy hair growth.

Best Actual Price: Around $24-$30

Cheapest Place To Buy: Amazon for sure

Designed For: Overall – both are meant to grow hair out:

  • DHT Blocker version decreases hair loss caused by hormonal imbalances
  • it also promotes growth and thickness
  • Hair, Skin & Nails version works best for growth and strength

I personally recommend the DHT Blocker (it’s better in terms of hair).  

My Rating: 8 out of 10

Worth Buying?: Yes and no.

It’s a good product for the money – but there’s a better choice for less.

So I recommend a supplement with a stronger formula that costs a few dollars less.

 

What I Liked About It

  • Varied ingredients in good dosages
  • Quality formula overall
  • Many satisfied users
  • Available in several retailers/sellers
  • Price is quite decent

 

What I Didn’t Like About It

  • You need to take 4 pills per day (only in one version)
  • Pills are pretty thick
  • Several complaints claiming many positive reviews are actually fake

 

 


What Is HairOmega? A Quick Overview


In a few words – it’s a brand focused on healthy hair growth.

On this purpose, it offers 2 different products:

  1. DHT Blocker – designed for hair loss caused by hormonal issues
  2. Hair, Skin & Nails Formula – designed for general health

HairOmega also produces 3 other products (but they’re not as strong as popular as these 2 supplements).

Both of its top 2 supplements are suitable for growing hair faster.

However – they don’t do the exact same thing.

Now – how does HairOmega claim to be better than other brands?

  • Highest quality ingredients
  • Made in the USA
  • Doctor formulated
  • Research-based formulas

To be honest – in terms of composition, its 2 products are definitely some high quality ones.

However, they’re not my top recommendation.

There’s a better option with a stronger formula for a lower price.

But other than that – HairOmega’s product are far from bad.

 


#1 – Ingredients (9 out of 10)


HairOmega has a pretty good formula overall:

  • compounds known for their hair benefits
  • high dosages in most substances
  • several vitamins/minerals

As I mentioned before – this product has 2 main versions.

In terms of ingredients, they’re quite similar but there are small differences:

  • contain about 75% mutual ingredients 
  • a proprietary blend that makes the difference between them

So let’s analyze each separately.

1. Mutual Ingredients (For Both Versions)

This list mostly includes vitamins/minerals – but there are also 2 herbal compounds.

Out of these – the most important ingredients are:

  1. Niacin – stimulates hair roots and follicles.[1]
  2. Folic Acid – also promotes hair growth and strength.
  3. Biotin – can prevent hair fall out, but the dosage here is too high (if you ask me).
  4. Zinc – a deficiency leads to serious hair loss. [2]
  5. Saw Palmetto – it’s the best herb against hair loss caused by DHT excess.
  6. Beta-sitosterol – can also block DHT high levels. [3]

Overall, these ingredients look pretty good.

My only mention is that biotin contains 5000 mcg (which is a very high dosage).

This substance can cause serious side effects in high quantities – that’s why I recommend taking at most 1000 mcg per day.

2. Proprietary Blend (DHT Blocker)

As you can tell – this is a mix of several natural ingredients:

  • most are herbal extracts
  • there are a few amino acids as well

Despite not having any dosages for each ingredient – this blends looks great:

  1. Green tea blocks DHT receptors on the outside.
  2. Nettle decreases the hair loss and strengthens hair.
  3. Cayenne pepper stimulates blood flow and circulation.

Most of the other ingredients have real benefits for hair.

But I won’t mention all of them, since I want to keep this review short enough to be easily read.

So overall – this blend contains the right things for a DHT blocker.

3. Proprietary Hair Support Formula (Hair, Skin & Nails)

This is the mix from the second version of HairOmega:

  • higher dosage than DHT Blocker’s blend
  • lower quality overall

Basically – this blend contains mostly ingredients that boost hair health.

Few of them are actually involved in stimulating hair growth.

But for a hair health supplement, this blend is really good.


Conclusion

HairOmega has a promising formula overall:

  • high number of different ingredients
  • contains a specialized herbal blend
  • good dosages in most compounds

Now – in terms of ingredients, I recommend the DHT Blocker version most.

It’s specifically designed for hair, so its formula is stronger at this chapter.

The other version is meant to improve hair, skin and nail health.

For this reason – it’s more of a general supplement (in terms of compounds).

 


 


#2 – How To Use It (6 out of 10)


Here I will give you a few details on HairOmega’s pills and their schedule.

To be honest – I’m quite disappointed of them at this chapter.

1. The Pills

First of all – HairOmega’s 2 versions don’t have the same kind of pills:

  • DHT Blocker uses capsules
  • Hair, Skin & Nails uses tablets

Now – veggie capsules are the kind of pills used by most hair supplements.

That’s because they have a gelatin cover (which makes them easier to swallow).

So far so good.

However – the Hair, Skin & Nails’ pills are totally different:

  • as I said, they are actually tablets
  • they have a thicker consistency and slightly larger dimensions
  • also, they’re harder to swallow

I personally don’t recommend supplement that contain tablets – because swallowing them can be a real chore.

That’s why I was a bit disappointed by HairOmega at this chapter.

2. The Schedule

Unfortunately, things aren’t anything better here either:

  • DHT Blocker requires 2 pills per day
  • Hair, Skin & Nails Formula requires 4 pills per day

Now – regarding the DHT Blocker, things look quite good.

2 pills a day is quite normal for a hair supplement.

On the other hand – the other version requires 4 pills (which is way too much).

Honestly – there are high chances that you forget about one of the 4 pills.

That’s why I never recommend products with such a high number of pills daily.

 


#3 – Results (8 out of 10)


To be honest, I haven’t tried any version of HairOmega myself.

For this reason – I won’t be able to speak from experience.

However, I tried to look into previous users’ opinions/reviews.

In this way – you could hear the opinion of people who actually tried the products.

Note: I only considered authentic reviews, not promotional ones.

1. What People Say

Both versions of HairOmega have around 4 stars on Amazon.

Considering both have around 1000 reviews – that’s a really good number.

It means the products actually work and they’re not scams at all.

So here’s what most people believe about them:

  1. Some say it really helped their hair grow faster.
  2. Others claim it decreased their shedding a lot.
  3. A few others say their hair looks thicker.
  4. There are also negative reviews as well.
  5. Most importantly, several people claim certain positive reviews are actually fake.
  6. Obviously, there are also users who didn’t have any success with these pills.

But basically – both products have over 50% positive reviews, which tells a lot.

In case you were wondering whether they’re scams or not – they’re certainly not.

Still – as I said, there’s also a negative side.

2. Biggest Complaints

Most negative reviews complain about:

  1. Many fake positive reviews
  2. No effect after a long time
  3. High price

Now – since I never used the product myself, I can’t talk about its effect.

But it will surely not work for 100% of users, so these complaints are totally legit.

As for the complaints about fake positive reviews – they might be true:

Basically – HairOmega might not work for so many people.

However, some of them might leave a positive review in exchange of the free/discounted bottle.

This strategy is really common in many products – so it’s totally possible.

But still – I can’t tell if that’s the case with HairOmega or not.


Conclusion

Both versions of this product have mixed reviews:

  • most are positive
  • there are also enough complaints

Anyway – overall, I personally believe the products have a high quality.

However, this doesn’t mean they’re the best choice among hair supplements.

I personally recommend a cheaper alternative that worked better than anything else for me.

 

 


#4 – Price (7 out of 10)


Considering both products’ formula – HairOmega isn’t expensive at all.

However, it’s not a cheap supplement either.

1. The Exact Price

HairOmega is mostly sold on Amazon – so that’s where you can find the lowest prices:

  1. DHT blocker costs $29.99 normally.
  2. Hair, Skin & Nails costs $23.69 (standard price).
  3. Since they’re sold on Amazon, they often have small discounts.
  4. You can find both for about $3-$4 cheaper at times.

Now – these prices are far from high.

For a product of this value, they’re actually decent.

But out of these 2 versions, I strongly recommend going for the DHT Blocker (in terms of hair effect).

And obviously – this is the pricier one among the 2.

That’s because it has a stronger formula, so it makes sense.

Still – compared to other supplements with a better formula, HairOmega’s DHT Blocker is a lot pricier.

That’s a reason why it’s not among my top recommendations.

And let me tell you more on this up next.

2. Competitors’ Price

I will only compare HairOmega’s products with my #1 recommended supplement.

I’m talking about a product called Folexin:

  1. HO costs around $30 per bottle (standard price for the DHT Blocker).
  2. F normally costs about $25 per bottle.
  3. Both have discounts often times. 
  4. HO’s product comes at around $27 (I haven’t seen it any cheaper).
  5. F costs as little as $18 per bottle.

In terms of formula – I consider Folexin as being about 30% superior.

Since it’s also a few dollars cheaper, I think it’s a much better choice.

Don’t get me wrong – I’m not trying to criticize HairOmega in terms of price.

I’m only saying it’s not the best option you have (regarding its quality/price).


Conclusion

HairOmega’s both products have a decent price:

  • DHT Blocker is more expensive
  • both are affordable for most people

However – if you really want to make the most of your money, I don’t recommend this brand.

My alternative is a few dollars cheaper and it has a better formula.

So from this point of view, I wouldn’t recommend HairOmega.

Not as a top choice, at least.

 


#5 – Where To Find It (10 out of 10)


HairOmega’s both products are quite easy to find:

  • available on most retailers
  • also sold in online local drugstores/pharmacies

From what I noticed – prices are about the same in all sellers.

However, Amazon remains my top recommendation:

  • discounts appear quite often
  • money back guarantee
  • you can get a refund very easily

In terms of price, you can probably find both products for less money on Ebay.

However – I don’t recommend that retailer because its sellers are quite independent.

For this reason, you might not receive what you actually ordered.

Plus – shipping fees are usually huge on Ebay, so I would rather stick to Amazon.

 


 


#6 – Final Conclusions


Here’s how I would sum up my opinion on HairOmega (in 3 ideas).

1. Good Formula

In terms of ingredients – this supplement looks great:

  • both versions have quality formulas
  • most ingredients have good dosages
  • varied compounds

As I said – these 2 formulas aren’t my personal favorite.

But they’re surely superior to 50% of the actual hair supplements (especially the DHT Blocker version).

2. Really Works

HairOmega has a lot of positive reviews.

It also has enough complaints – but they’re far less than the praises.

For this reason, I personally have a good opinion on this brand (in terms of results).

It surely doesn’t work for everyone – but it works for more than half.

3. Not The Best Choice 

In terms of quality/price – I don’t think HairOmega is the best product you can buy.

That even though it’s a supplement I actually like.

It’s only that there are cheaper products that have a better quality.

So if you want to make the best investment – I recommend another supplement.

 


My Verdict – Is HairOmega Worth It?


Short answer: Yes and no.

It’s a good product in terms of ingredients/price:

  • quality formula
  • varied ingredients
  • pretty much affordable

But there is a better product for the money – so that’s what I recommend instead. 

I’m talking about a supplement called Folexin:

  1. Stronger formula overall
  2. Price is a few dollars cheaper
  3. Works for both men and women
  4. Enough positive reviews and praises

Now – HairOmega is definitely a reputable brand with 2 quality supplement among its products.

But in terms of hair growth/loss, it’s not my top recommendation.

If you want the best formula for the lowest price – I strongly recommend Folexin instead.

It’s the product I’m using on a constant basis and my top choice among all supplements I used.

2 thoughts on “My HairOmega Supplement Review (2020) – Scam Or Legit?

  1. My family has a love & hate relationship with this product. I always had good results from it, my hair would grow even 3 inches faster in 2 months. But my mom hates it, it always gives her stomach pain and even diarrhea if she takes more than 1 pill per day. Surprisingly she doesn’t get the same reaction with other supplements (eg Biosil, Nature Bounty, etc.). One of my sisters is the same, she doesn’t feel well after taking this product but she is fine taking others. I’m the only one who seems to tolerate it well. I haven’t had my dad try it out (I doubt he wants to grow hair faster lol) but I guess he would be fine just like me.

    What do you think could be causing my mom and sister’s bad reaction? I’m guessing one of the ingredients…But I did a long research and there doesn’t seem to be an original ingredient in HairOmega (I mean none that would only exist in this supplement and any other). 

    I use this supplement because it’s cheap for the good effect it has. But I will also be looking at Folexin, it also seems super cheap so maybe my mom and sister would tolerate it better. 

    Thank you for any opinion!

    1. Hey Lilly, thanks for sharing your family’s experience with HairOmega. 

      It’s pretty hard for me to tell what’s causing those side effects in your mom and sister. As you said, most of the ingredients from HairOmega can also be found in other hair supplements. But since they’re fine taking those, there’s clearly something in this supplement that bothers them.

      So my advice is to go for another supplement that you guys can afford (like Folexin) and see how that goes. HairOmega has a pretty good formula – so except those side effects, the product should work for your mom and sister. But since they can’t tolerate, they should try another product with a strong formula and see how that one works.

      You also said it’s weird they both struggle with side effects from this supplement and you don’t. Well – there might be a genetic thing. Maybe your mom is sensitive/allergic to one of HairOmega’s ingredients and your sister inherited that sensibility (and you didn’t). So it’s all that simple.

      I couldn’t find too many complaints on HairOmega at this chapter, that’s why I think it’s pretty rare.

      Please let me know what your family decides to try instead of this product and whether the side effects appear again or not.
