My Hair La Vie Review (2020) – Scam Or Not?

My Hair La Vie Review (2019) - Scam Or Not?

 

It’s time for my Hair La Vie review – because their products look very promising.

But are they really effective?

I found out lots of worrying reviews online – which makes me think they might be a scam.

For this reason, I tried to dig deep into these products and find out the truth behind.

Note: This review is based on my opinion + research on Hair La Vie.


What Is Hair La Vie?


Shortly – it’s a hair product brand focused on natural formulas.

In other words, it claims to have products that are 100% chemical free.

The products are all designed to grow hair using natural ways.

My Hair La Vie Review (2019) – Scam Or Not?

Hair La Vie has 4 major products:

  1. Clinical Formula Vitamins
  2. Revitalizing Vitamins
  3. Shampoo
  4. Conditioner

There are many other products on their website – but these 4 are the best-sellers.

Out of these 4, their best product are the Clinical Formula Vitamins.

For this reason – this supplement has lots of offers on their website:

  • costs $59.95/bottle normally
  • they give you the chance to go for auto-shipping 
  • this is either monthly or every 3 months
  • in both cases, you also get some gifts and a discount

My Hair La Vie Review (2019) – Scam Or Not?

But is it really worth it? In my opinion – all of Hair La Vie’s products are way too expensive.

So my advice is to go with a supplement that is $35 cheaper (and had better effects in my case).

 

So Let’s Get To The Review

Full Name: Collection Products by Hair La Vie

VersionsThere are about 10 on the official website – but I will only focus on :

  • Clinical formula vitamins (pills)
  • Revitalizing vitamins (pills)
  • Shampoo + Conditioner

Best Actual Price: Between $50-$60 per bottle (vitamins).

Cheapest Place To Buy: Only available on their official page.

Designed For: Mostly hair growth and everything it involves:

  • repairs damaged ends
  • stimulates follicles

It also claims to reduce breakage and shedding.

My Rating: 6 out of 10  Not the best choice ever

Worth Buying?: Not really – All products are way too expensive for what they can do.

 

What I Liked About It

  • Ingredients are pretty good (especially in one type of vitamins)
  • High dosages in most substances
  • Pills are quite easy to swallow
  • Money back guarantee (at least on paper)
  • Very professional website

 

What I Didn’t Like About It

  • Extremely expensive for what they contain
  • Lots of up-sells, which makes it hard to buy what you want
  • Some of the products don’t have strong formulas
  • Shampoo makes the hair quite dry
  • Needs about 3 months to start working
  • Many negative reviews
  • Didn’t have positive results in my case

 

 


#1 – Ingredients (9 out of 10)


Both forms of Hair La Vie’s vitamins have a pretty good formula:

  • many ingredients known for their hair benefits
  • strong herbal extracts
  • pretty high dosages

Regarding the topical products (shampoo + conditioner) – the ingredients aren’t so easy to analyze.

But more on this a bit later.

Right now – let’s take a quick look at each of the 3 products’ formula.

1. Clinical Formula Vitamins

Speaking of ingredients – they are by far the best product from Hair La Vie:

My Hair La Vie Review (2019) – Scam Or Not?

Out of these ingredients – here are the ones with biggest benefits for hair:

  1. EvnolMax – it’s a trademark form of vitamin E, which boosts growth. [1]
  2. Hydrolyzed Collagen – strengthens hair and smooths skin. [2]
  3. Zinc – can decrease shedding.
  4. USPlus Saw Palmetto – a trademark form of Saw Palmetto (decreases DHT-related hair loss). [3]
  5. Proprietary Blend – several herbs for thickening and boosting hair growth.

Overall – this formula looks excellent, in my opinion.

It’s the kind of product that would surely work.

2. Revitalizing Vitamins

This formula is also pretty good – but not as strong as the previous one:

  • not so many ingredients
  • rather based on vitamins/minerals
  • no trademark ingredients

My Hair La Vie Review (2019) – Scam Or Not?

As you can see, the herbal extracts are put together in a Proprietary Blend.

That’s not necessarily bad – but it’s usually because their individual dosages are lower. So it’s a nice way of covering that.

So this formula isn’t bad, but it’s not amazing either.

3. Shampoo + Conditioner

Ingredients aren’t very important here.

As in every topical product – active and inactive substances are all put together in a long list.

So it’s hard to spot the important compounds:

However – what makes them unique is that they’re made only from natural substances.

(At least that’s what the brand claims).


Conclusion

Hair La Vie’s Clinical vitamins are indeed very good:

  • 2 trademark ingredients and 1 proprietary blend
  • strong formula

The Revitalizing vitamins also look good – but their formula isn’t as impressive.

So overall, if you really want to buy a product from Hair La Vie – choose the Clinical formula.

However – I personally wouldn’t recommend any, just because they’re way too expensive.

 


#2 – Smell & Consistency (8 out of 10)


Wondering how the pills and shampoo/conditioner look like? I’ve got the answer.

1. Pills

Hair La Vie’s vitamins didn’t struck me with anything.

They looked pretty similar to other hair pills:

  • made of a transparent gelatin cover
  • brownish powder inside
  • average dimensions
  • can be swallowed easily
  • no smell

Basically – if you’re fine with taking regular pills, these vitamins shouldn’t create you any trouble.

2. Shampoo + Conditioner

These are surely not my favorite products (in terms of consistency):

  • shampoo doesn’t foam very well
  • conditioner is quite thick
  • also, it doesn’t hydrate the hair properly (in my case)

Another thing worth mentioning is that you should shake the shampoo before using it.

From what I’ve seen – it has 2 phases (liquid + thick).

So if you don’t shake it first – you will only get the liquid (it’s at the top of the bottle).

When it comes to smell, they have a light fragrance. Nothing to complain about.

 


#3 – How To Use It (8 out of 10)


Here’s a brief summary on how you should use Hair La Vie’s products.

That’s what the label recommends for each:

  1. Clinical vitamins require 3 pills per day.
  2. You should take 2 in the morning and 1 at dinner.
  3. Revitalize vitamins only require 2 pills a day.
  4. You can take them anytime (together or separately).
  5. Shampoo/conditioner can be used in every wash.

Basically – it’s pretty simple and you can find all the instructions on the label.

Just keep in mind that Clinical vitamins (which are better) require 3 pills – while the others only 2.

That might make a difference (in terms of comfort).

 


#4 – My Results (7 out of 10)


Honestly, I didn’t have amazing results with these supplements.

But I pretty much know the reason – I only used them for 1 month (which isn’t enough).

I used the Revitalizing vitamins, because at that point it was the only option.

My Hair La Vie Review (2019) - Scam Or Not?

1. My Background

My hair was growing out really slowly – so I was looking for a product to help.

I had dealt with a serious hair loss in the past.

That’s the reason why my hair didn’t look excellent:

  • very thin and fragile ends
  • too little volume
  • it was breaking very easily

Basically – my hair was still falling out, but not as bad as before.

So I wanted to see if Hair La Vie could stop my shedding and make my hair grow faster.

2. How It Worked

As I said – I used the Revitalizing vitamins, which are not the best ones at this point.

Anyway, they didn’t really help a lot:

  • my shedding didn’t get much lower
  • I couldn’t notice any new baby hairs
  • my actual hair grew about an inch (that’s something usual)
  • also, the shampoo didn’t really suit me
  • it made my hair drier than usual

Now – I’m aware that 1 month (as I took the pills) is way too little.

In fact, Hair La Vie says you need 3 months to start seeing effects – which is a lot.

Considering these vitamins were super pricey ($48) – I couldn’t really afford that.

So keep in mind that you should use them for at least 3 months – therefore, only buy them if you can afford that.


Conclusions

These vitamins disappointed me a bit – even though it’s my fault for not taking them longer:

  • didn’t increase my hair growth speed
  • hair didn’t look nicer overall
  • shedding was only slightly better

So at $48 per bottle – I really don’t think these pills are worth buying.

Plus – if you buy the Clinical version (the better one), it’s even more expensive: $60.

Honestly, I don’t think it’s worth paying so much money on a monthly product.

I got some much better results in 2 months from a $25 supplement – so that’s a much better choice for me.

 

 


#5 – Other Opinions (6 out of 10)


In order to judge fairly, I wanted to check out some other (authentic) reviews of previous customers.

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

1. What People Say

Unfortunately – I couldn’t find too many authentic reviews of Hair La Vie.

The products don’t sell on Amazon, which was my #1 to go website for real opinions.

You can only find reviews on Hair La Vie’s official website:

  • 95% offer 5 stars out of five
  • only praises about the products
  • no chance to write your own review

That’s what makes me think that those reviews are fake positive.

So they’re surely not worth considering.

However – I also found out some reviews on HighYa. And these are surely from real customers:

  1. They’re about 50-50 (positive-negative).
  2. Some people say the products are really helpful.
  3. Other praise the vitamins for their benefits.
  4. However, some complain about no effect.
  5. Others even claim they lost more hair than before.

So basically – opinions are quite mixed up, so they’re clearly authentic.

2. Biggest Complaints

As I said – Hair La Vie also has some serious negative reviews.

Considering I found these complaints several times – I’m pretty sure they’re not fake:

  1. Shampoo dries hair really bad.
  2. Conditioner doesn’t hydrate properly.
  3. Products caused massive hair loss.
  4. Company doesn’t want to refund unsatisfied customers.
  5. Unfriendly and rude staff.

Now – some people also said they never received their order, despite paying it.

But I only found 2-3 reviews of this kind, so it’s not something very common.

Either way – Hair La Vie seems to be a great company to deal with until you decide to ask for a refund.

From what I read, that’s were the problems begin.

So if you were counting on their money back guarantee – I say you should think twice.


Conclusion

There are both positive and negative reviews on Hair La Vie.

But that’s only if you know where to look for:

  • their official website only has 5 star ratings
  • there’s absolutely no complaint

Instead, if you check out authentic websites – you will find plenty of negative reviews.

That’s what makes me think Hair La Vie is far from what it claims to be.

Plus – many customers are calling it a scam. So I’m not sure if it’s worth trying.

 


#6 – Price (4 out of 10)


That’s by far the biggest downside of Hair La Vie.

All 4 products I reviewed are extremely expensive for what they do.

1. The Exact Price

As I said – you can only find these products on the official website.

Ebay is also an option, but it’s quite hard to find a good price (including shipping).

So here’s how much Hair La Vie costs:

  1. Shampoo + Conditioner = $49
  2. Clinical Formula Vitamins = $59.95
  3. Revitalizing Vitamins = $48

Honestly – these prices are really high for a monthly supply.

You do get a discount for buying larger packages – but the price is still very high.

For example, you can get the Clinical vitamins for $46 per bottle if you buy the 6 months supply.

To be honest – I wouldn’t recommend buying so many from the start, without trying them first.

But either way you buy Hair La Vie, all products are really overpriced.

2. Competitors’ Price

I will compare the Clinical Vitamins (CV) with my #1 hair supplement Folexin (F):

  1. F has a slightly better formula (but CV isn’t far).
  2. CV requires 3 pills per day, F only 2.
  3. F worked much faster for me personally (2 months).
  4. CV costs $60 per month, F costs $25.
  5. Both offer a discount for buying more bottles together.
  6. You can get CV for up to $45.67 per month.
  7. F comes for almost $18 per bottle.

So overall – Folexin is $35 cheaper than Clinical Vitamins, which is a lot of money.

That’s why I personally recommend it over Hair La Vie’s products.

Even though both can work – Folexin is faster and a lot cheaper.

So that’s what I prefer to use instead.

 

 


#7 – Where To Find It (5 out of 10)


As I mentioned above – you can’t really find Hair La Vie products easily:

  1. Only available on the official website.
  2. The company doesn’t sell on Amazon.
  3. You can also find them sometimes on Ebay.
  4. However, they’re usually opened and unused on Ebay.

So if you really want to purchase these products – the official website is the best choice.

But there’s a little problem:

  • they try to up-sell you lots of times
  • once you added a product to your cart, they give you extra offers
  • only clicking on them will add them to your cart (automatically)
  • you will have to delete them manually

So I recommend revising your cart before making the actual payment.

Later Edit: Hair La Vie’s vitamins are now available on Amazon for similar prices. Still, most of the other products from this brand can only be found on its official website.

 


#8 – FAQs


Coming up, I will try to answer the most common questions about Hair La Vie.

1. How many pills per day?

It depends what vitamins you’re using:

  • Clinical Formula requires 3 
  • Revitalizing Blend requires 2

You can either take these pills together or space them out – whatever is more comfortable for you.

2. How long lasts one bottle?

Each of them are designed for one month.

Regarding the shampoo/conditioner, that depends how frequently you use them.

3. Can I take it with other drugs?

Normally – you should.

But my advice is to ask a doctor first, as the vitamins contain some unusual ingredients (the trademark ones).

So it’s better to consult a specialist first and see if there’s a risk of interactions.

4. Are there any side effects?

I personally didn’t experience anything while taking these pills.

The label doesn’t mention anything either.

However – some people claim their hair loss worsened and their hair became dry and brittle.

5. How fast should I notice an effect?

Hair La Vie’s website mentions you need at least 3 months (which is quite a lot).

Also – the products work best after 6 months, which is even longer.

So keep in mind they’re not the kind of products that work in 1-2 months.

 


#9 – Final Conclusions


Here’s how I would sum up Hair La Vie in 3 ideas.

1. Quality Formula

I’m talking mostly about Clinical Vitamins – the other products aren’t anything special.

But the Clinical Vitamins look pretty good:

  • 2 trademark ingredients
  • high dosages
  • not the same formula as in every supplement
2. Pretty Slow

None of these products can work very fast.

In fact – compared to other hair supplements, they’re quite slow:

  • they need about 3 months to work
  • it will take up to 6 months until you see major effects

So you will have to take many bottles before you start seeing changes.

3. So Overpriced

Honestly, all of Hair La Vie’s products are really pricey.

Considering what they contain – the price is way too high.

That’s one of the major reason why I wouldn’t recommend them.

 


My Verdict – Is Hair La Vie A Scam?


Short answer: Not really – it’s a legit company with legit products.

However, I personally wouldn’t advise you to buy them:

  1. Price is absolutely huge ($50-$60 per bottle).
  2. Don’t contain some miraculous ingredients.
  3. Need at least 3 months to start working.
  4. Have enough negative reviews and complaints.

Funny thing – you won’t find any complaint on Hair La Vie’s official website.

That makes me think the company isn’t 100% honest.

Either way – Hair La Vie’s products cost way too much for what they can do.

If you really want a good hair supplement, you can get something that works much faster (1-2 months) for $35 less.

That’s my personal choice.

22 thoughts on “My Hair La Vie Review (2020) – Scam Or Not?

  1. Interesting review but I am not going to pay so much on their trademark ingredients. I’ve seen Hair La Vie advertised so this is what raised my interest in it, but they never listed the price. Now that I know it it doesn’t surprise me… Thanks for taking the time to write every detail about it but I am not interested anymore, Amazon has much cheaper supplements and they probably have about the same stuff inside. I will check your recommendation though, it’s not the first time I hear about it and it’s only been good stuff. Hope it’s more decent than Hair La Vie.

    1. Hi there Diane, thanks for letting me know your opinion on Hair La Vie. I didn’t know it’s advertised because I never saw any of its ads – but I’m not surprised, considering the price. Many expensive brands advertise their products and it makes sense.

      You’re totally right about seeing cheaper vitamins on Amazon. If you’re looking for hair vitamins specifically, Amazon has plenty of choices. Just pay attention to their side effects, as they tend to cause acne in some people. Try to choose a product with a normal dose of biotin (1500 mcg at most) and you should be fine.

      Regarding Folexin, I do advise you to check it out. It costs about the same as cheap hair vitamins – but its effect is much better and faster. You can find out my personal experience in this review.

      Hope this helps.

  2. Thanks for your review! I bought 3 bottles of vitamins from them because they were offering a nice travel bag for free. They would only offer free gifts for more bottles back then..now I can see they offer that bag even if you buy just one bottle, that’s bad luck! The vitamins are ok for hair, but far too overpriced. Other than feeling silkier and fuller, my hair is the same, it didn’t grow any longer than usual. Nice gifts but pricey products!

    1. Hi Sherry, thanks for letting me know how Hair La Vie worked for you.

      I pretty much agree with the things you mentioned – even though I’m not necessarily a fan of their free gifts. But that’s more of a marketing strategy meant to make people buy more bottles at one. They probably stopped having so many customers and that’s why the now offer gifts even for 1 bottle alone.

      I don’t know how much you used it, but Hair La Vie itself claims to work only after 3 months. So you would have to take 3 bottles at least – before you start seeing an effect. 

      That’s a really long time, compared to other products. I personally couldn’t wait so much – considering lots of supplements start working after 1-2 months.

      That’s another reason why I think Hair La Vie isn’t really the best choice…

  3. I used their hair mask and got red blisters all over my scalp. They were so bad that I went straight to the emergency room…It was only the first time I was using it. Fortunately they went away after receiving some creams at the emergency, next day I was almost fine. I’m surprised it didn’t affect my hair…though a few weeks after it started falling out more. But that was the last time I ever used the products from Hair La Vie, I will not put my hair at risk once more!

    1. Hi Korena, you probably experienced a scalp allergy to Hair la Vie’s hair mask. This happens quite rarely, but it happens. I can’t tell if it’s because of something inside the product or another cause – but it was surely the mask producing the allergy. Did you every experience anything similar? I’m talking about other products. You might be allergic to a certain ingredient/additive and not be aware of it.

      Anyway, the best thing is that your hair wasn’t affected. Just never use the mask again and you should be fine. Just take extra care when applying any new products (especially hair masks). Hope this helps.

  4. Hi Olly, do you know if Hair La Vie is available in France? I live in Nice currently and tried placing an order here, but I seem to be getting an error. I should probably try from my laptop next time, maybe there’s something wrong with my phone. Also would there be a chance that I find them on Amazon France? I know you don’t necessarily recommend them and I appreciate your honest review, but I decided to give them a shot. Hope you don’t mind this comment.

    1. Hi Ann, I definitely don’t mind it. I created this review, said my opinion on this product – and if you choose to buy it or not, it’s all up to you. Even if you decide to buy a product that I consider a scam, it’s your own choice – so I definitely don’t mind. It’s your own money so you can pick the product you like best, that’s totally fine.

      As far as I know, Hair La Vie does ship internationally – in most countries actually. The only problem is that shipping costs around $30 and it’s going to take about 1 month until it arrives. That’s a major downside. Also, you should consider the custom taxes – which aren’t mentioned anywhere because it depends from country to country.

      So you might end up paying twice the cost of the product in the end.

      Regarding Amazon France, I know Hair La Vie doesn’t sell its products on any retailer (not even Amazon). So if you can’t find it on the US website, I doubt you can find it on the France version.

      So it’s all up to you. If you decide to buy it, the official website is the only choice. You can order a several months supply, though – that would save you some money from shipping and custom taxes.

      Hope this helps. If you decide to order Hair La Vie, please let me know how it works, I’m really eager to hear it.

    1. Hi Sayeh. The shampoo I regularly use is Nisim For Hair Loss & Regrowth because it keeps my hair in an excellent shape. I also use the conditioner from the same brand. Anyway, I’m not sure how effective they are for hair loss and growth. I mean – they do have a better effect that most of the shampoos I tried, but I think my great results in terms of hair growth aren’t because of them.

      I’ve been constantly using hair supplements to fight my shedding – so these are the real responsible for my great improvement:

      1) Pills work on the inside and they treat the actual cause. Shampoos and topical products only treat the external symptoms.

      2) A good supplement will maintain the results even if you stop using it. On the other hand, topical products usually cause a reverse hair loss (Minoxidil is the best example).

      3) Shampoos and conditioners usually need to be used daily for best results. So you have to wash your hair every day, condition it and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes (or even more). With pills it’s a lot easier. I usually recommend choosing a supplement that requires 1-2 pills per day, because with 3 it’s pretty complicated.

      So if you really want a shampoo + conditioner, I recommend Nisim’s products – they have a great price and lots of positive reviews. But if you want my honest recommendation, go for a supplement instead. Actually, you can use both – but a supplement will have way better results alone than a shampoo + conditioner. Hope this helps.

  5. Hey Olly, thanks for your honest review. 

    My mom is using Hair La Vie clinical vitamins for her thinning hair, she’s in the late 50’s and has portions of her scalp where hair is getting really thin. Well these vitamins help with that, her hair has been getting increasingly thicker in the last couple of months. But she’s looking for a cheaper alternative now, so I’m trying to help her. I’ve been looking into Biosil, not sure if you heard of it, but it’s a supplement for hair and nails (she also deals with peeling nails). I also heard it’s good for skin, which would be helpful at her age. Just wondering if you have any opinion on this product, as an alternative to Hair La Vie? Maybe you can look at its ingredients and let me know what you think, if it might help her instead. Thanks anyway!!

    1. Hello Rebecca, thanks for your feedback on Hair La Vie. Though their vitamins are really good, they’re also really pricey. So I understand why you can’t afford them constantly, as I can’t either.

      When it comes to Biosil, I know it pretty well actually. It’s a supplement that I’ve used myself and had positive results with it – but I recommend it mostly for women with minor hair issues who also want to keep their skin young. 

      In other words, I think it’s a great skin supplement at this price. But when it comes to hair, it’s not the best product ever.

      However, I think it’s a good choice for your mom – since she would take it for its hair, nails and skin benefits. If she was only looking for a hair supplement, I wouldn’t recommend Biosil. But in this case, I think it will help her for at least one of the problems.

      Now – I can’t guarantee it will have the same effect as Hair La Vie for her hair. That’s because Biosil’s formula isn’t so amazing (regarding hair benefits). But from what I understood, her hair is thick enough at this point, she only needs something that will keep it so. That’s why Biosil should work in her case. It has a lot of positive reviews for skin and also for nails. So since it’s based on collagen, it should maintain her hair in the current shape. Anyway – in the worst case, it should solve her peeling issues and improve her wrinkles. So that’s surely not bad.

      Therefore, my advice is to go for it. Let me know how it works and if your mom’s hair starts thinning out again, just get back to me and I will try to recommend you something else. Hope this helps.

  6. The vitamins did a great job for my hair! It was really dry and breaking off just by running my fingers through it, after using Hair la vie it’s so much stronger and doesn’t fall out that easy! I hesitated so much on buying this because it’s way above the price I can afford, but in the end I just had to grin and bear it because I just couldn’t stop using it. Now my hair is a lot better so I take about a pill everyday or every 2 days. So a bottle is a lot more long lasting now, my monthly budget doesn’t even feel it. I’m totally recommending these vitamins now! I think you have to pay a lot to get the best.

    1. Hi Kirsti, thanks a lot for your feedback on Hair La Vie. I’m happy to hear these vitamins helped.

      I definitely agree that Hair La Vie’s products have a high quality – so I’m not surprised they were so effective. But since your hair was falling out only due to fragility (which can be fixed quite easily, unlike other causes of hair loss), the results don’t seem so impressive to me.

      Basically – many hair supplements on the market would have been good enough for your issue. I’m saying this because fragile hair isn’t such a major problem. Hair usually breaks easily when it lacks a certain nutrient. Since most hair supplements contain the essential vitamins + minerals, chances are the it contains the missing nutrient from your hair.

      That’s why most supplements are good enough for hair loss caused by fragile hair. I’m not saying this is a minor problem, but it’s one that can be treated quite easily (unlike DHT excess, stress, genetics, etc.).

      Now – I don’t know what other supplements you tried before, but I believe there weren’t too many. Because in my opinion, most products would have helped you. That’s why I don’t agree that you always have to pay a lot to get the best effect. There are many cheap products that worked for me – and I always tend to choose/recommend those ones (I don’t have a very high budget).

      So it’s great to hear Hair La Vie was so effective, but I’m pretty sure many other products would have been so. Anyway, thanks a lot for your feedback. Keep taking a pill after the schedule you made, it seems to help for maintenance. 

  7. Just one quick question about Hair lavie if you don’t mind, can the shampoo & conditioner help my husband’s thinning hair? He’s been losing lots of hairs recently especially in his crown area. I’m only using the shampoo from Hair lavie to wash my hair and it’s really strong and silky and no fall out. I’m just wondering if it can strengthen his hair too? Products are a bit expensive so I don’t want to waste them if they’re not helpful for men. Thanks!

    1. Hi there Hil, I’m opened to all sorts of questions so don’t worry. 

      Hair La Vie’s products are mostly designed for women, because they’re meant to boost hair loss. In other words, they’re not created to fight hair loss. They can improve the shedding caused by breakage or fragile hair, but mostly that. When it comes to general hair loss (caused by hormonal imbalances, stress or other internal factors), they’re not very effective. At least that was my experience and what I read about them.

      Now – that was mostly available for the vitamins. When it comes to the shampoo and conditioner, they’re even weaker when it comes to hair loss:

      – both are topical products so they’re not completely absorbed inside

      – mostly treat the external symptoms’

      – they don’t actually fight the internal problems affecting the hair

      That’s why I never recommend topical products for hair loss (not even for hair growth) – at least not as a first choice and not alone. Supplements do a much better and faster job.

      For this reason, I doubt Hair La Vie’s shampoo and conditioner could help your husband. They seem to be beneficial for your hair because it’s probably in a good shape already. But if it was falling out massively and you were only using these 2 products, I doubt they would help a lot.

      That’s why I think they’re way too weak for your husband’s problem (that seems to be an early balding issue). I actually wouldn’t recommend him even the supplements from Hair La Vie, since their formula is designed for women hair loss.

      Instead – he needs a supplement that focused on ingredients designed for male hair loss. I would actually recommend him a product based on Saw Palmetto (as this is the best natural DHT blocker – the main cause behind male hair loss). 

      Out of the supplements I looked into, my personal favorite is Procerin. It’s one of the cheapest supplements of this kind and it has a great formula. Actually – it has the same formula as many other products, but up to $30 less in price (its producing company isn’t such a famous brand, maybe that’s why). Since I could find a lot of praises about it, I have a lot of trust in it.

      Another product designed for male hair loss with lots of praises online is Follixin – but it’s pricier, so that’s why I recommend Procerin instead.

      Additionally, your husband should start rinsing his hair with green tea or apple cider vinegar – as these 2 liquids can block DHT excess from the outside (especially green tea). As DHT excess causes most cases of hair loss in men, it can be really helpful.

      I hope this can help and please let me know how it goes in the future.

    1. Hi Leslie, thanks for the update. That’s right, the vitamins are also available on Amazon for about the same price as on Hair La Vie’s website. I will make sure to update my review!

  8. Hi! I think your reviews and advice are
    Amazing! Can you please recommend a vitamin for dramatic hair growth. One vitamins for great younger looking skin decreasing wrinkles or preventing wrinkles? I would rather take 2 separate different supplements so that it’s stronger instead of 1 supplement that’s supposed to
    Help both skin and hair. Thank you!!

    1. Hey Trangie, thanks for your kind words! Taking 2 different supplements is fine, I would also prefer this option, to be honest. The effect should be better if you use 2 products that are each focused on only one thing.

      1) For skin wrinkles, I used a product called BioSil. It’s actually designed for hair, nails and skin but I personally had positive results only in terms of skin. I also read the same in many reviews, so it probably works best in terms of skin. And yes – it does reduce existing wrinkles (but if they’re not very severe, from what I think). Obviously, it also prevents future one, so it’s the kind of supplement you need. It’s based on ingredients similar to collagen, so it should really help in terms of skin. Collagen also strengthens hair strand, so it’s perfect.

      2) Regarding hair growth, do you want a supplement based on vitamins or a herbal supplement? You mentioned “vitamin” so I imagined you want a supplement based on vitamins. But unless your hair is healthy and in a great shape, I don’t recommend that.

      Hair vitamins can speed up hair growth – but mostly if your hair is in a great condition. Otherwise, they’re not going to help much. But if that’s your case, Hairfluence is a product you could try.

      In case you also want to improve your volume or if your hair is falling out/thinning, I recommend going for a herbal based supplement. These also contain vitamins, but they’re combined with herbs (which have the best effect for hair growth). Folexin is my top recommended herbal supplement, because it has the best quality for the money. But I would like to give you more options, so please take a look at this list.

      Additionally, you should also check out this guide I created on growing your hair faster. If you combine the supplement with the other tips from there, the results should appear faster.

      Please let me know what happens in the future and if you start seeing positive results. I hope this helps you.

  9. Thank you so much for all the info! You are so kind and helpful! I’m buying everything u recommend, I’ll be back in 2 months with an update on my progress 🙂

    1. Hey again Trangie, you’re more than welcome. I hope you’re going to see positive results in these months and I’m eager to hear about the updates!
