It’s time for my Hairfluence review – because this supplement looks really promising:
- quality ingredients
- a decent price
So is this product too good to be true? Well – it might have some tricky issues behind.
For this reason, I tried to dig deep into this supplement and find out the real truth.
Since I’ve also used it in the past – it wasn’t too hard to research it.
Note: This review is based on my own experience + research on Hairfluence.
So Let’s Get To The Review
Full Name: Hairfluence by Zhou Nutrition
Sizes: Only a 30 days supply (60 capsules)
Best Actual Price: Around $22
Cheapest Place To Buy: Amazon (mostly for US residents)
For international orders – Zhou Nutrition’s website is the best choice.
Designed For: Faster hair growth – it promises to:
- stimulate hair roots and follicles
- promote hair health and shine
- treat nutrient deficiencies
- support nails and skin health
Basically – it’s not a supplement meant to fight hair loss. It mostly helps hair that is already healthy.
My Rating: 7 out of 10
Worth Buying?: Yes and no (it depends on your needs):
- GOOD for vitamin/mineral deficiencies
- GOOD for growing out hair that is already healthy
- BAD for hair loss
- BAD for hair affected by stress or hormones
I personally prefer a similarly-priced supplement that works much better (for both hair loss and growth).
What I Liked About It
- Contains most of the essential vitamins/minerals
- High dosages in most ingredients
- Only requires 2 pills per day
- Also strengthens skin and nails
- Helpful for hair that is already healthy
- Really good price
- Available in several retailers
What I Didn’t Like About It
- No herbal extracts among the ingredients (work better than vitamins)
- Doesn’t fight hair loss at all
- Not effective for thinning hair
- Very high dose of biotin (which can be dangerous)
- Many complaints about side effects (especially acne)
#1 – Ingredients (9 out of 10)
Compared to other products – Hairfluence has a pretty good formula:
- various ingredients known for their hair benefits
- high dosages
However, there’s also a negative side:
Its formula is mostly based on vitamins and minerals.
Instead – there are very few herbs (which have a much better effect).
Now – I would divide Hairfluence’s ingredients in 2 categories:
- Vitamins & Minerals
- Proteins & Extracts
So let’s take a closer look at each group.
1. Vitamins & Minerals
They make about 70% of Hairfluence’s formula.
- Biotin – it’s considered “the hair vitamin” when it comes to growth. 
- Vitamin B1,2 – a deficiency can cause shedding.
- Niacin – can boost hair growth when applied topically. 
- Folate – stimulates hair follicles.
- Panthotenic acid – prevents early gray hair.
Even though some vitamins/minerals are really helpful for hair growth – their effect isn’t really strong.
Instead – they work best in cases of deficiencies.
Another thing I need to point out is the (too) high dosage of biotin:
- this substance can cause acne in high dosages (over 1000 mcg)
- Hairfluence contains 5000 mcg – which is way too much
2. Proteins & Extracts
Hairfluence contains 4 ingredients that belong to this category:
- MSM – it might help hair growth, but it’s not 100% sure. 
- Collagen Hydrosylate – strengthens roots and ends.
- Bamboo 70% Extract – can promote hair growth in some cases.
- Hydrolyzed Keratin – softens and strengthens hair at the same time.
To be honest – these ingredients aren’t miraculous either.
But since you can’t find them in every hair product, that’s a step ahead from Hairfluence.
If you ask me – Hairfluence’s formula is good (but not excellent):
- contains essential vitamins
- most have good dosages
- rich in protein-based ingredients
So for a person dealing with thin hair due to a deficiency – Hairfluence should be good enough.
But when it comes to stress, hormonal imbalances or other issues – I doubt it could help much.
From this point of view, I see its formula rather weak.
Not to mention the huge dose of biotin (that could make it dangerous).
#2 – How To Take It (9 out of 10)
Hairfluence looks pretty good when it comes to pills and schedule.
So here’s what you should keep in mind.
1. Pills Facts
This supplements contains gelatin capsules:
- transparent cover
- yellowish powder inside
- average dimensions
- quite easy to swallow
Basically – the pills look like in most hair supplements.
So they’re not thick nor too large to be swallowed.
Just make sure you drink plenty of water and swallowing them shouldn’t be an issue.
2. The Schedule
Hairfluence looks decent at this chapter too:
- you need 2 pills per day
- you can either take them together or space them out
- my advice is to take them after eating
Now – 2 pills per day isn’t as easy as 1.
But very few products require only 1 pill daily – so Hairfluence isn’t too bad.
#3 – My Results (6 out of 10)
I have a personal history with Hairfluence – as it was one of the products I used myself.
Though I did not have excellent results with it, I still consider it effective in certain cases (not mine).
1. My Background
My #1 struggle was hair loss. Because of this, my hair was looking really bad:
- very thin ends with no volume
- roots looked full and normal
- growing out my hair was really hard
Basically – as my hair was falling out constantly, it was impossible to grow it out.
It had a shoulder length and it was really hard to go beyond that.
Now – my hair loss was caused by stress and hormonal imbalances.
On the other hand, Hairfluence works for nutritional deficiencies (which I didn’t have).
So could it help me any single bit?
2. How It Worked
Unfortunately – my results with it weren’t too good:
- My hair loss improved very little in about 2 months.
- I was still losing about the same number of hairs per day.
- My hair had no nicer volume.
- I could notice some growth (but it was minimal).
Basically – Hairfluence wasn’t the right supplement for me.
That’s because of its formula, which is meant for people with vitamin/mineral deficiency.
But level of nutrients was fine – it was the hormonal imbalances affecting my hair.
And since there’s no herb in Hairfluence, it couldn’t possibly fight hormone excess.
That’s why it didn’t help me and that’s why it probably doesn’t help hair loss.
Based on my experience with it, I don’t really recommend Hairfluence:
- mostly works for growing out healthy hair
- also effective for a vitamin/mineral deficiency
- not strong enough for hair loss
- doesn’t fight shedding caused by hormonal issues
So unless you have a lack of nutrients – I wouldn’t recommend this product.
If you’re a man dealing with hair loss/early balding, I’m pretty sure it’s not the right product.
(Male hair loss is usually caused by DHT excess – which Hairfluence doesn’t decrease).
I personally prefer a supplement with a stronger formula – so that’s what I recommend instead.
#4 – Other Opinions (7 out of 10)
Since my results with Hairfluence weren’t 100% relevant – I tried to look for other opinions.
In this way, I can create an unbiased review.
Note: I only considered authentic reviews, not promotional ones.
1. What People Say
The best part is that I found plenty of real opinions on Hairfluence.
So here’s what people think about it:
- Some say it really helps hair health.
- Others claim it improves hair growth speed.
- A few others say it’s the best product for strong hair.
- On the other hand, some users are unsatisfied.
- Many claim they saw no effect after months with these pills.
So as you might expect – opinions are quite mixed up (which is completely normal).
Hairfluence has 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon (from almost 7000 reviews) – not bad at all.
But as I said, there are enough unsatisfied customers as well.
2. Biggest Complaints
Most negative reviews on this supplement are related to:
- Serious side effects (especially acne)
- No improvement for hair loss
- Increased shedding
Now – I personally didn’t experience any side effects from these pills.
So they clearly don’t affect everyone.
But since there’s such a high number of similar complaints, I’m pretty sure they are real.
PS: Biotin tends to cause acne when it comes in a too high dosage (over 1000 mcg). Hairfluence contains 5000 mcg, so that’s my explanation.
Hairfluence has mixed opinions – according to people:
- works pretty good for growing out healthy hair
- not effective for hair loss (can worsen it)
- acne and breakouts are quite frequent
I personally don’t recommend products with such a high dosage of biotin (I also said it before).
That’s one of the reasons why I wouldn’t buy this supplement.
I personally prefer a stronger formula instead – as it doesn’t cause acne and it works much better against hair loss.
#5 – Price (9 out of 10)
Hairfluence is one of the few hair supplements with a great price.
But let me give you more details on that.
1. The Exact Price
Hairfluence has about the same price in all retailers:
- it costs $21.99 per bottle
- that’s a 30 days supply (60 capsules)
Honestly – very few hair supplements are so affordable.
So when it comes to price, I have nothing to criticize about Hairfluence.
It’s true that its ingredients aren’t too expensive alone – so this kind of explains the decent price.
But even so, Hairfluence needs to be praised for having such a good price.
2. Competitors’ Price
I will only compare Hairfluence with my #1 recommended hair supplement (Folexin):
- F has a much stronger formula overall (based on vitamins AND HERBS).
- H has a lower price overall.
- F costs $25 per bottle normally.
- If you buy more bottles at once, you can get it for $18.
- H costs $22 per bottle normally.
- There’s no discount if you buy more bottles at once.
Basically – Hairfluence is $3 cheaper than my favorite supplement.
But its biggest downside is that it doesn’t offer any discount for more bottles.
Folexin does that – and since I usually buy 5 bottles at once, I get a much better price (than with Hairfluence).
Plus, I prefer Folexin because it’s better for both hair growth and loss – while Hairfluence mostly works for hair growth.
#6 – Where To Buy It (10 out of 10)
As I said before – Hairfluence is really easy to find.
It’s available in major retailers and it also has an official website:
- Zhou Nutrition’s website
…and these are just the most important ones.
So which has the best offer? Well – prices are about the same. But here’s what I recommend:
- Amazon is the best choice for US residents (free shipping in most cases).
- Zhou Nutrition’s website is better for international shipping (ships in most countries).
- Ebay might have some great offers as well at times.
So it’s up to what exactly you need and your current location.
#7 – FAQs
Coming up – I will try to answer the most common questions about Hairfluence.
Note: I might repeat something I already mentioned, but it’s easier to spot here.
1. How many pills per day?
Only 2 – you can either space them out or take both at once.
2. How long lasts 1 bottle?
A bottle is designed for 30 days – so it’s a monthly supply.
There are 60 capsules and you need to take 2 daily. So that’s enough for 30 days.
3. Can I take it with other drugs?
Since it’s mostly vitamins – my advice is to ask your doctor before taking Hairfluence.
If you’re not taking any drug, you can use it without any worries.
But if you’re on a treatment, asking your doctor’s consent is safer.
4. Are there any side effects?
Unfortunately – there are some serious ones:
- acne and breakouts
- worsening hair loss
Now – most users won’t develop any side effect (I’m the best example).
But certain people can develop pimples and breakouts – mostly because of the high dosage of biotin.
5. How fast should I see any effect?
Hairfluence seems to work faster than most hair supplements.
According to the label, you can see some results after 3-4 weeks.
Since I have tried this product – I have to agree:
- I didn’t see massive results overall
- but there was an improvement after about 1 month
So if you have a deficiency or you’re the right candidate for these pills – the effect should appear quite fast.
#8 – Final Conclusions
Here’s how I would sum up my opinion on Hairfluence (in 3 ideas).
1. Works Pretty Fast
Compared to other hair supplements – this one seems to have a quicker effect.
According to the label:
- hair improvements start appearing after 3-4 weeks
- skin and nails improvements can be seen in 2-3 weeks
So for hair changes, one month is quite fast.
It’s true that there are enough supplements that works so fast – but most need 3-4 months instead.
2. Doesn’t Help Hair Loss
That’s an essential aspect about Hairfluence:
- mostly effective for hair that is already healthy
- can improve its health and growth speed
- doesn’t fight hair loss causes
- not effective against thinning hair
The only case when it could help is if your hair loss is caused by a deficiency.
But these cases are pretty rare (under 10%). Most of the times – stress or hormonal imbalances cause hair loss.
So in these situations, Hairfluence couldn’t really help.
Compared to other supplements, Hairfluence is quite cheap:
- only costs $22 per bottle
- that’s the price for a monthly supply
- available on several retailers
Now – it’s true that Hairfluence’s ingredients aren’t very pricey.
So it would have no reason to cost more than $25.
But even so, I appreciate the decent price (many supplements don’t have it).
My Verdict – Is Hairfluence Worth Buying?
Short answer: It depends on your needs.
If you have a nutrient deficiency that’s affecting your hair – it’s the right product.
Also, if you have healthy hair that you want to grow out – it’s again a good choice.
But in most cases – I personally don’t recommend it:
- Not effective against hair loss.
- Doesn’t work for hair affected by stress/hormonal imbalances.
- Too high dosage of biotin (which can cause acne).
- Formula isn’t very strong overall.
So even though it’s a good supplement (in some cases) – I personally wouldn’t buy it again.
Despite its low price, I prefer a product that is similar in price but has a much better effect:
- works for both hair growth and less
- effective against thinning hair
- fights hair loss caused by hormones or stress
- works for both men and women
- stronger formula overall
