My Amplixin Review (2019) – Too Good To Be True?

My Amplixin Review (2019) - Too Good To Be True?

 

It’s time for my Amplixin review – a brand of products meant to fight hair loss and promote growth.

So what makes it so special?

  1. Lots of positive reviews
  2. Decent price (compared to similar products)

But is Amplixin worth it? After all, all of its products are meant for topical use – which isn’t very effective.

Well – it’s time to find out the truth behind Amplixin.

Note: This review is based on my experience + opinion on Amplixin.

But first – let’s see a quick overview of Amplixin.

 

So Let’s Get To The Review

Full Name: Hair Support System from Amplixin

Versions: There are several products available, including:

  • Hair loss & growth serum
  • Shampoo/Conditioner
  • Hair mask

I will focus on the serum in this review (it’s by far the #1 product).

Best Actual Price: Around $28

Cheapest Place To Buy: Probably Amazon

Designed For: The serum is meant to:

  • prevent shedding and hair loss
  • decrease thinning
  • speed up hair growth

The other products are all meant for faster growth, hydration, etc. But they don’t have a very strong effect.

My Rating: 8 out of 10 – It’s a good product, but not among my recommendations.

Worth Buying?: It depends – mostly if you have a DHT hair loss.

Otherwise, I wouldn’t recommend it:

  • it’s a topical product
  • only works on the outside
  • doesn’t treat the actual cause 
  • not effective for many types of hair loss

Instead – I recommend a $25 supplement with a much better formula.

 

What I Liked About It

  • Formula is based on several herbs
  • Nice smell and consistency in all products
  • Works really fast (about 1 month)
  • Lots of positive reviews and opinions
  • Pretty affordable

 

What I Didn’t Like About It

  • Ingredients have no dosages
  • No clear formula (active and inactive ingredients are all together)
  • Only works for DHT induced hair loss
  • Didn’t stop my hair loss completely
  • Shampoo, conditioner and hair mask aren’t very effective alone
  • Doesn’t treat the actual cause of hair loss (only the symptoms)

 

 


What Is Amplixin? 


Shortly – it’s a brand focused on hair health products.

But how are these products different from the rest?:

  1. Designed for hair loss caused by DHT excess.
  2. Formulas are based on biotin.
  3. All are meant for topical use.

Now, Amplixin’s #1 product (the serum) is meant to stop DHT hair loss and increase growth.

But that’s not all – Amplixin offers some other products:

  • growth stimulating shampoo
  • revitalizing conditioner
  • hydrating mask
  • itchy scalp treatment

But as you might expect, its products are far from perfect.

So is Amplixin as good as it claims? Here’s my own analysis.

 


#1 – Ingredients (8 out of 10)


Firstly, all Amplixin products are topical – which means 2 things:

  1. No dosages.
  2. Ingredients are all listed together.

In other words, you can’t really tell what is the main ingredient. Or how much of it there is.

All ingredients are put together (whether they’re active or inactive). So it’s hard to spot the real active formula.

But I tried to do the hard work for you.

1. Serum

According to the label – its #1 ingredient is biotin. 

Other than that, here are some of the important substances it contains:

  1. Caffeine – can decrease shedding and alopecia. [1]
  2. Sage Leaf – stimulates hair follicles and promotes growth.
  3. Chamomilla Extract – calms down irritated scalp.

In my opinion, these ingredients don’t look amazing (especially in a topical product).

They’re simply not very strong or numerous.

2. Shampoo/Conditioner

They’re both based on a blend called AmpliGro Complex (3 ingredients):

  1. Caffeine – good for hair loss.
  2. Red Clover – strengthens hair roots. [2]
  3. Peptide Complex – decreases hair loss caused by DHT excess. [3]

The other ingredients are mostly additives and consistency agents.


Conclusion

Honestly, Amplixin’s ingredients didn’t impress me:

  • not very strong ingredients
  • no dosages

Plus – it’s a topical product, which means it doesn’t treat the internal cause (which is bad).

That’s why it’s not a product I would use (not as a #1 choice, at least).

 


#2 – Smell & Texture (9 out of 10)


Here’s what you should know about Amplixin’s consistency.

1. Smell

All 3 products I tried have the same fragrance:

  • fresh and natural scent
  • not very strong
  • feels like herbs (probably Sage)

So if you’re sensitive to smells, Amplixin shouldn’t bother you.

It’s not very intense, as other products I tried .

2. Texture

Here’s what you should know:

  • serum is pretty similar to a hair mousse
  • it’s not oily or greasy
  • shampoo feels oilier than other products
  • but it still doesn’t leave hair greasy (in my case at least)
  • conditioner isn’t very thick either

So in my opinion – shampoo and conditioner could be a bit thicker.

But even so, once you apply them on your hair – there’s no greasiness.

Plus, you don’t need huge amounts of any. The shampoo foams well enough – so there’s no need to use more than usual.

 


#3 – How To Use It (10 out of 10)


Amplixin’s instructions are pretty clear (on all products).

  1. Serum is recommended for daily use.
  2. Spray it directly onto your scalp and then massage.
  3. Leave it in your hair (don’t rinse).
  4. You can use the shampoo for every wash.
  5. Conditioner can also be used after washing.

Basically – you should use the shampoo and conditioner normally.

But when it comes to the serum, it’s essential not to rinse.

Don’t worry, it won’t weight down your hair (on the contrary). It actually leaves it very smooth and silky.

 


#4 – My Results (7 out of 10)


I used several products from Amplixin for about 2 months.

Even though the results weren’t amazing – it worked decently for a topical product.

1. My Background

My Amplixin Review (2019) – Too Good To Be True?

I was suffering from a serious hair loss caused by several factors:

  • hormonal imbalance
  • stress
  • thinning hair

Now – Amplixin is meant to decrease hair loss caused by DHT excess (a hormonal imbalance).

But what about hair loss caused by stress? Or by fragile hair?

I was curious if these products could help me – and in what level.

2. How It Worked

First of all – I used the stimulating shampoo, conditioner and serum.

My Amplixin Review (2019) – Too Good To Be True?

I applied them as the label recommended for about 2 months.

  1. My hair loss decreased with around 40% after 1 month.
  2. Hair felt much thicker (in the roots).
  3. There was less breakage.
  4. I had a lot more volume on top.
  5. In terms of growth, I couldn’t see big changes.
  6. Also, my ends were still pretty thin (almost as before).

Now – I know 2 months isn’t such a long period.

If I used Amplixin for 6 months, the results would have been much better.

But here’s the thing:

  • my shedding decreased from month 1 
  • after 2 months, it was about the same

Basically – Amplixin seemed to work about the same after 1 and 2 months (which isn’t normal).

If you ask me, it’s all about its mechanism.

It’s meant to stop hair loss caused by DHT – but that wasn’t the only cause of my hair loss.

So in my opinion, decreasing my hair loss with 40% was the most it could have done (since it wasn’t all caused by DHT excess).


Conclusion

Amplixin did work – but not amazingly:

  • decreased my shedding partially
  • didn’t make my hair grow faster
  • not helpful for thinning ends

So unless your hair loss is caused by DHT excess, I doubt it would help much.

Even so – I wouldn’t recommend Amplixin, because it’s a topical product and has a weaker effect.

In these cases, supplements work much better (since they treat the problem from the inside). That’s what I recommend instead.

 

 


#5 – Other Opinions (8 out of 10)


I tried to find more reviews on Amplixin – so that I could offer an unbiased opinion.

And fortunately, I found plenty of real opinions.

Note: I only considered authentic reviews, not the ones based on general info.

1. What People Say

I checked out Amazon reviews, which are known to be authentic:

  1. Many people praise Amplixin (especially the serum).
  2. Some say they saw really fast results.
  3. Others claim their shedding decreased completely.
  4. There are also some complaints.
  5. Some people claim the products aren’t original.
  6. Others say they simply didn’t help at all.
  7. There are a few claiming they’re only effective for DHT hair loss.

Now – I have to agree with the last category.

Amplixin is meant to fight DHT excess. So if your shedding is caused by stress, it surely won’t help too much.

But other than that – there are over 50% positive reviews on Amplixin.

So it’s pretty clear that it’s not a scam, but a good product.

2. Biggest Complaints

As I said – here’s what some people criticize Amplixin for:

  1. Sellers don’t always send original bottles.
  2. Sometimes the products are diluted. 
  3. In those cases, they’re not as effective as usual.

I found more complaints on this topic, so it can’t be a coincidence.

Other than that – many people say Amplixin didn’t work for them, which is 100% possible.

If their hair loss isn’t caused by DHT excess, these products will surely not help.


Conclusion

As it’s normal – Amplixin has lots of mixed reviews. 

However, more than half are positive – which makes it clear it’s a really good product (especially in certain cases).

 


#6 – Price (8 out of 10)


To be honest, Amplixin isn’t too bad at this chapter.

It’s surely not a cheap product – but it’s not that expensive either.

So compared to many so-called hair loss solution, it’s actually affordable.

1. The Exact Price

Here are the prices I found for Amplixin on Amazon:

  1. Serum costs around $28 (2 oz).
  2. Shampoo is almost $27 (8 oz).
  3. Conditioner is also $27 (8 oz).
  4. Masks costs $26 (8 oz).

Now – these prices may seem high for some topical products.

But considering Amplixin works for so many people, I don’t think it costs so much.

I personally wouldn’t pay so much on it (just because it only works on the outside).

But compared to similar shampoos/conditioner/serums – I actually think it has a decent price.

2. Competitors’ Price

I want to compare Amplixin with my #1 recommendation for hair loss – a supplement called Folexin.

  1. Price is about the same in both (F costs $25 at most).
  2. F has a much better formula, with 30 ingredients.
  3. A is a topical product, F is a supplement.
  4. A has more of a local action, while F treats the real cause from the inside.
  5. F only comes as pills, A has several versions.
  6. A doesn’t offer any discount for buying more products at once.
  7. On the other hand, you can find F for as little as $18 per bottle.

Now – Folexin is my top recommendation for hair loss & growth:

  • decreased my hair loss completely in 2 months
  • made my hair grow almost 3 times faster
  • cheapest product of this kind
  • works from the inside (not just on the outside)

Basically – supplements have a much better effect on the long term.

They treat the actual cause, not just the external symptoms (as topical products do).

That’s why I definitely recommend a supplement instead of Amplixin or any topical product.

 

 


#7 – FAQs


Coming up, I will try to answer the top questions about Amplixin.

Note: I might repeat something I already mentioned, but it’s easier to spot here.

1. How often you should use it?

It depends on the product:

  • shampoo/conditioner: in every wash
  • serum: daily or every 1-2 days
2. How long lasts 1 bottle?

That really depends on how much/often you use it.

But in my case – each of the 3 products I used lasted almost 2 months.

So that’s a pretty long period, in my opinion.

3. Can I use it while taking pills?

Absolutely. Amplixin only has topical products, so there’s no possible interaction with any drugs you’re taking.

4. Are there any side effects?

I personally didn’t experience anything.

However – some of the reviews I read mentioned: 

But as you can see, all symptoms were temporary and pretty minor.

5. How fast should I notice an effect?

One month – if you ask me.

I could see some real changes after this time and most reviews I read claimed the same things.

So Amplixin is a pretty fast product, compared to others.

 


#8 – Final Conclusions


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

1. Affordable

Compared to many other shampoos/conditioners, Amplixin has a decent price:

  • costs under $30 per bottle
  • you don’t need a high quantity
  • a bottle can lasts even 2 months

So when it comes to cost – you can’t complain about Amplixin.

2. Fast Effect

From what I saw, this product doesn’t need months to start working:

  • I could see an effect after about 1 month
  • many reviews I read said it worked quite fast

Now – that’s mostly available to the serum.

The shampoo, conditioner and the others don’t work very well alone.

3. Only For DHT Hair Loss

That’s an essential thing:

  • Amplixin isn’t effective for everyone
  • it only works if your shedding is caused by DHT excess

And what if it’s not? Well – it might help a bit, but there won’t be any major change.

So keep this in mind before purchasing it.

 


My Verdict – Is Amplixin Worth Buying?


Short answer: It depends.

If your hair loss is caused by DHT excess – it might be a good choice.

But if it’s caused by any other thing (including stress), Amplixin won’t help too much.

Now – I personally don’t recommend it for 3 reasons:

  1. It’s a topical product.
  2. Only works on the outside.
  3. Doesn’t treat the real (internal) cause.

Instead, my advice is to use a hair supplement:

  • long term (and better) effect
  • treats the real cause on the inside
  • even lower price

No matter what topical products I used, they never worked as well as supplements.

So that’s why I will never use an external product – at least not alone.

You can use any additionally.

But my honest advice is to use an internal treatment as a #1 choice – the results are much better overall.

12 thoughts on “My Amplixin Review (2019) – Too Good To Be True?

  1. Hi, Olly, I’ve got a very mixed view on Amplixin. I initially bought it for my husband, who’s been losing his hair since mid 40’s. Now he’s 52 and his hairline receded compared to previous years. So I had him use Amplixin and his shedding didn’t seem to progress. It didn’t grow hair in the bald area, that’s true. But preventing the baldness from progression is still a lot. Long story short, I started dealing with hair loss myself so I started using his serum. I think I used more than 3 bottles alone and it’s still as bad. I know Amplixin is meant for both sexes so I can’t understand why it has no effect on me. I’m the same age as my husband, not overweight or smoking, overall healthy.

    1. Hello Angela, thanks for sharing you and your husband’s experience with Amplixin. It’s certainly a good product – but only in some cases (DHT hair loss).

      So this might be the thing you missed. 

      Male hair loss is mostly caused by DHT excess – which seems to be the case of your husband. However, DHT excess isn’t always the main cause in women shedding.

      Yes, it is pretty common – but not as common as in men. So considering your age, there are several other potential causes like menopause, scalp conditions , stress and even certain supplements you’re on

      So if Amplixin didn’t work, your hair loss is surely not caused by DHT excess. My recommendation is another hair supplement that is more general (not designed for DHT hair loss or similar issues).

      It’s called Folexin and it has the best price out of the supplements that worked for me. So it’s a pretty risk-free choice and it should work, especially if your hair loss isn’t caused by DHT excess. Hope this helps.

  2. Hi Olly, thank you for your honest review. I’m glad to see someone admitting that topical products aren’t as effective as they claim, because this is a real issue and many people aren’t aware of it.

    I have 2 small bald patches since menopause, which made my hair fall out terribly. It’s been about 6 years and even though my hair looks healthier in general, those bald patches are still there but not fully bald. Hair grows sometimes there, but not at the regular speed and thickness. So there’s still less density in those area.

    I read many positive opinions on Amplixin and decided to give it a try. I used it for almost 4 months, if I remember well. In the end, here’s what I concluded:

    1) It improves hair thickness and density BUT only in hair that is normally healthy (not damaged or weakened).

    2) It does not regrow new hairs, I could see that in my bald patches. There were no new hairs, only the ones I had before.

    3) Hair growth speed doesn’t get considerably better, maybe only a bit.

    So Amplixin managed to add some volume to my hair, but it still didn’t cover my bald patches. They’re still there, as they were before. 

    Maybe it’s a better choice for male pattern hair loss, but I don’t think it can cover baldness or grow new hairs on bald men.

    1. Hi Courtney, thanks a lot for all those details you gave on Amplixin. Your feedback is certainly very useful. I didn’t have any bald spots, so I couldn’t test Amplixin at this chapter.

      But I couldn’t find too many reviews saying that it regrew new hairs. So I pretty much agree that it cannot help baldness – only prevent it, at most.

      Now – I’m not very sure what could work for those bald spots that you have. My top recommended supplements are general, so I doubt they could regrow new hairs (especially in a short period).

      However – there are 2 products I could recommend you. I’m not sure they will work, but you can try any of them.

      Both are meant for male hair loss, but they can help in your case as well (they have many reviews from women):

      1. Follixin – which claims to regrow hair and prevent male baldness.

      2. Procerin – which comes as a supplement + foam, and it has some similar claims.

      They have about the same price, Procerin is a bit cheaper overall (with shipping taxes included).

      I can’t guarantee they work for your problem, but they’re better options than products designed to grow hair in general.

      Hope this helps.

  3. I love this product! It took me almost 3 months to see a change around my thinning hairline, but once it started working my hair was improving in weeks! Now it’s my 6th or 7th month with it and I’m still super excited. Other products I tried would work well at first then my hair would start falling out again, hopefully it’s not the case this time too. CON: Makes my hair greasier so I have to wash it every 2 days (normally it would need washing twice a week).

    1. Hi Christie, thanks for your feedback on Amplixin. It’s great to hear you have positive results with it.

      Hopefully it continues to work forever as good as it works now. In case it stops working, just give it a longer break, use something else in between and after 2-3 months get back to Amplixin and see if it starts working again. But I hope it won’t be the case.

      Hope this helps.

  4. Thank you for this honest review. Its really appreciated. Í’m using Amplixin for a healing Alopecia Areata, I have one more partially bald spot and I’m trying to speed the growth inside the area. As far as I can tell (2 months use), it’s helpful. I was just curious what you think about the shampoo and hair mask from the same brand? I read that they have the best effect when used together, but every company says that about their products, so I don’t really know. Are the others worth buying? At least the shampoo… Not sure if you tried them all but you can surely tell better than me, thanks.

    1. Hi Adam, thanks for sharing your opinion on Amplixin. 2 months is still early to see big changes, so keep using it.

      Regarding your question – I would normally recommend only the serum. The hair mask is good for hydrating and nourishing, which isn’t exactly what you need as a men (as far as I understood). On the other hand, the shampoo is better than the mask but weaker than the serum.

      So if you’re on a tight budget, I recommend buying just the serum. If you’re not, you can also buy the shampoo, since it’s not that pricey. But I still think the hair mask isn’t really worth it – not necessarily because of its price, but because it takes a longer while to use it (you need to let it sit and so on).

      My advice is to also add a supplement to your schedule, as it improves hair growth a lot better than any topical product I tried. But sure, it’s up to you what you decide. Hope this helps.

  5. Hi Olly, really appreciate your honest recommendations. I had purchased a bottle of Amplixin but failed to see results. After reading your positive review of it, I decided to give it another try. But this time I also ordered your recommended supplement Folexin, since you say pills work better because they work on the inside.

    Well I’m now in my third month with these 2 products and can happily see huge changes in my hair thickness and texture. I’m a black woman with kinky hair so it isn’t too easy to see growth so fast. But some of my scalp had thin pieces of hair due to wearing sew-ins too tightly. Well after using Folexin and Amplixin those parts are almost gone, my hair looks the same all around my head. I am honestly over the moon to see these great results so fast, thank you so much for your advice! I don’t know if it’s just Folexin or both doing this amazing work, but I don’t think it’s Amplixin alone as last time it didn’t really work.

    But I will use them in this combination for a long time from now, it doesn’t even cost me $50 per month. Thanks for your website, you’re a true inspiration for me!!

    1. Hi Ranya, thanks a lot for your kind words! I’m really happy to hear about your great results with Amplixin and Folexin, it’s amazing to feel your happiness and satisfaction. I’m especially happy that you managed to get these results without spending a lot of money, so you can see this is possible. You only need to do some research and find those cheap products that have a strong effect and potent formula – because there are many.

      Please keep me updated with your future progress and how these 2 products continue to work for you.

  6. Would this help for split ends and damaged hair? I have a serious shedding but don’t think there is any hormonal issue, my hair is only fragile after being excessively styled and dyed, it falls out because it breaks easily. Every time I have my morning brushing routine, there are hundreds of hairs on my brush. Most of them are the ends, so it’s not the roots breaking off. 

    I’m looking for a rinse/lotion that would solve this, but I don’t want to pay my butt off. Amplixin looks affordable and has many stars on Amazon, my only issue is that it might not help since I don’t have an actual roots hair loss. If it’s not right for me, do you happen to know any herb that could help?

    Also if you could recommend some natural hair dye, I’m trying to go lighter but want to avoid bleach (I’m a chestnut right now).

    1. Hi Diana. Unfortunately, I don’t think Amplixin would help your problem. From your description, your hair is only damaged – so that’s what makes it fall out. Amplixin only works for hair loss caused by DHT excess – so it’s not going to do much in your case.

      In my opinion – instead of using any cosmetic products, you should try some natural herbal extracts:

      1. Green Tea is excellent for strengthening hair. Even though its #1 effect is blocking DHT, it also repairs damaged ends and adds strength. Plus that it’s so easy to use – here are several ways to do it.

      2. Apple Cider Vinegar is another great remedy, especially for fragile hair like yours. You can use it as a rinse or combined with other ingredients (like honey, lemon, eggs, etc.).

      3. Using turmeric on your hair can also improve its texture and strengthen it considerably – and pretty fast.

      Regarding natural hair dyes – I recommend you lemon juice and honey for going lighter. Since your hair is not in a good shape, I even advise you not to use bleach – that could totally destroy it and make it fall out a lot worse. These recipes need to be repeated several times to work, since they’re natural and not that strong. But they also help hair, so the benefits are a lot better on the long term.

      Hope this helps.
