My Propidren Review (2023) – Are The Side Effects Real?

My Propidren Review (2019) - Are The Side Effects Real?

It’s time for my Propidren review – because this supplement looks great at first sight:

  • excellent ingredients
  • many positive reviews

There are only 2 bad things about it – price and potential side effects.

So is Propidren really good? Does it work better than others? And are its side effects real?

I tried to dig deep into this product, so here’s the actual truth behind.

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

So Let’s Get To The Review

Full Name: Propidren from HairGenics

My Propidren Review (2019) - Are The Side Effects Real?Versions: There are 4 products available:

  • shampoo + conditioner
  • supplement
  • topical liquid

I will focus on the supplement in this review – as it’s much better overall.

Best Actual Price: Around $40 per bottle

Cheapest Place To Buy: Either Amazon or HairGenics’ website

Designed For: Hair problems caused by DHT excess:

It’s effective for both hair loss and growth (but only if it’s caused by DHT excess).

My Rating: 7 out of 10

Worth Buying?: Not necessarily – it’s a good product, but not the best you can get:

  1. Quite overpriced (in my opinion)
  2. Costs too much for its actual value
  3. Only works for DHT hair loss

I personally prefer a supplement with a similar formula that costs $15 less.


What I Liked About It

  • Most ingredients are very effective and natural
  • Pretty good dosages (quantities)
  • Pills are easy to swallow
  • Many positive reviews online
  • Available in several retailers


What I Didn’t Like About It

  • Too expensive for its actual value
  • Prices are higher on the official website
  • Only works for DHT hair loss



What Is Propidren? A Quick Overview

In just a few words – it’s a set of products focused on treating hair issues caused by too much DHT.

There are 4 Propidren products available:

  1. Shampoo
  2. Conditioner
  3. Topical Liquid (Serum)
  4. Supplement

My Propidren Review (2019) - Are The Side Effects Real?

However – the supplement is the one that does most of the job, according to real customers.

For this reason, it’s the one worth focusing on.

Despite containing some quality ingredients – Propidren is also a pricey product (compared to the alternatives from the market).

Besides, some people claim it causes major side effects. 

But in reality – that’s not really the case.

So now that you know the main things about Propidren – it’s time to analyze it more deeply.


#1 – Ingredients (9 out of 10)

Propidren’s formula looks really promising:

  • based on herbal extracts
  • most ingredients have serious studies behind

Now – it’s not the only supplement with such a good formula.

But compared to many products on the market, its ingredients are really good.

I would divide them in 2 main groups:

  1. Herbal Extracts
  2. Vitamins + Minerals

So let’s take a closer look at each.

1. Herbal Extracts

Propidren contains most of the essential herbs for hair loss & growth:

  1. Saw Palmetto – best herbal DHT blocker and really effective against alopecia. [1]
  2. Beta Sitosterol – also blocks DHT excess.
  3. Horsetail – extremely useful for thinning hair and shedding.
  4. Nettle – contains lots of nutrients that boost hair growth. [2]
  5. Fo-Ti – a Chinese herb that increases growth speed. [3]
  6. Pygeum Bark – another natural DHT blocker.
  7. Green Tea Extract – using it topically will decrease shedding and promote growth. 

Basically – all herbs from Propidren’s formula are famous for their hair benefits.

There are many supplements claiming to use “miraculous” herbs – but in most cases, few people ever heard of them.

That’s why I always recommend products that contain ingredients known for their benefits.

2. Vitamins + Minerals

There are only 3 in this formula:

  1. Iron – a deficiency can cause serious hair loss. [4]
  2. Biotin – the best vitamin for hair health and growth. [5]
  3. Zinc – a high quantity stimulates hair follicles considerably.

The only downside is that Propidren could contain more nutrients.

But even so – these 3 are probably the most important ones. So it could be worse than that.


Propidren has a really good formula:

  • ingredients with known hair benefits
  • mostly based on herbs

But even so – it’s not the very best I know.

In fact, I personally recommend a supplement that contains most of these ingredients – but some additional ones besides (about 30 in total).

So I don’t really recommend Propidren in terms of ingredients – not as a top choice, I mean.


#2 – Size & Texture (9 out of 10)

You’re curious how the pills look like? I will try to give you more details here.

1. Pills Size

To my surprise – they look better than I expected:

  • capsules with a gelatin cover
  • pretty easy to swallow
  • average dimensions

So if you’re afraid of large horse pills – that’s not the case here.

If you take Propidren with enough water, you shouldn’t have any trouble swallowing the pills.

2. Shampoo & Conditioner Texture

If you’re also interested in the shampoo, here’s what you need to know:

  • whitish color
  • easy to apply and lathers pretty well
  • you don’t need a very high quantity per wash

Also – it’s not the kind of shampoo with strong ingredients, that might irritate your scalp.

So it’s pretty normal, in terms of consistency.


#3 – How To Use It (8.50 out of 10)

Fortunately, Propidren has some clear instructions in all products:

  1. You need to take 2 pills per day.
  2. There’s no recommendation about the schedule.
  3. You can either take them together or separately.
  4. I personally recommend spacing them out throughout the day.
  5. They need at least 3 months to start working.
  6. Shampoo and conditioner need to be used with every wash.

Basically – don’t worry too much about the directions, as you can find them on the label (unlike in other products).

They’re pretty easy to follow, anyway.


#4 – Results (8 out of 10)

Firstly – Propidren isn’t one of the products I have personally tried.

So I won’t be able to share too many experience details.

However – I checked out over 100 customer reviews about it.

In this way, you can see the whole picture from people who actually used the product.

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

1. What People Say

Somehow surprisingly – Propidren has a lot of positive reviews.

In fact, its complaints are pretty rare (compared to many other hair supplements).

So here are the most common opinions of previous users:

  1. Some people say it decreased their hair loss really fast.
  2. Others claim it’s excellent for hair growth.
  3. There are some saying it thickened their hair a lot.
  4. Many customers also added pictures as a proof.
  5. Some say it was completely ineffective for them.
  6. Others even call it a scam (though I doubt that’s true).

So even though opinions are mixed up – most customers are praising Propidren.

For me, that’s enough to make a good opinion about these products.

But still, let’s take a closer look at the negative side as well.

2. Biggest Complaints

As I said, there weren’t thousands of unsatisfied customers.

But out of those complaints, most were about:

  1. Price
  2. Weak effect
  3. Side Effects

Now – even though I haven’t used Propidren myself, I tend to agree with some of these issues:

  • Price is indeed very high.
  • Not every products works great for everyone. So for some people, it probably just didn’t work.
  • Side effects are possible and they’re more common in some products than in others

Regarding those side effects – some people complained about itching, sexual issues, etc.

But considering there were quite a few complaints, I don’t think they’re very common.


Overall, Propidren has more than 60% positive reviews.

This means it’s a really good product overall. And the risk of side effects is pretty low, in my view.

However – I still wouldn’t recommend it as a #1 choice.

I personally prefer another supplement with a wider formula that’s $15 cheaper. I just think it’s a much better deal overall.



#5 – Price (6 out of 10)

That’s probably the biggest drawback of Propidren.

In my opinion – it’s a bit overpriced for what it actually contains (compared to similar products).

1. The Exact Price

Here’s how much each of the 4 products costs on Amazon:

  1. Supplement – $39.99
  2. Shampoo – $39.79 
  3. Conditioner – $39.99
  4. Topical Liquid – $39.99

Shortly – each product costs $40 per bottle, which is a bit too much.

Firstly, the shampoo, conditioner and liquid shouldn’t cost more than $20.

On the other hand – the supplement should be under $30, considering the ingredients it contains.

So in my opinion, Propidren costs way too much for its actual value.

2. Competitors’ Price

I will only compare Propidren with my #1 recommended supplement (Folexin):

  1. P contains 10 active ingredients in total.
  2. F contains almost 30 overall (about the ones from P + others).
  3. P costs $40 per bottle normally.
  4. However, it doesn’t offer any discount for buying larger quantities.
  5. On the other hand, F costs $25 normally.
  6. If you buy more bottles, you can get it for $18 per month.

So basically – I prefer Folexin because it has a much better value for the money.

It has a better formula and still – a $15 lower price.

Propidren also has some good ingredients – but Folexin contains about the same substances + around 13 others.

Considering it’s significantly cheaper, I think it’s a much better choice. At least in my case.


#6 – Where To Buy It (7 out 0f 10)

You can find Propidren in several retailers.

My Propidren Review (2019) - Are The Side Effects Real?But out of these – there are 2 that stand out:

  1. Amazon
  2. HairGenics’ official website

First of all – the second is the producer’s website. So normally, it should have much better prices.

But that’s not really the case. In fact – every product costs $50 there ($10 more than on Amazon).

On the other hand, Amazon offers all products for $40 – shipping included.

So surprisingly or not – it has a much better offer overall.

For this reason – if you’re really willing to pay Propidren’s high price, choose Amazon. It’s a bit cheaper overall.


#7 – FAQs

Coming up – I will try to answer the most important questions about Propidren.

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

1. How many pills per day?

You only need 2, which you can take whenever you want (together or spaced out).

2. How long lasts 1 bottle?

30 days – it’s a month supply.

If you want to buy directly a larger quantity, you can order several bottles at once.

3. Can I take it with other drugs?

My advice is to ask your doctor first – especially if you’re following a long term treatment.

Even though there’s a very tiny risk of interactions, it’s better to be safe.

4. Are there any side effects?

Some customers complain there are several – including:

  • itching
  • erectile dysfunctions
  • fatigue
  • headaches

However – the per cent of people dealing with side effects is quite low. So even if they’re possible, they’re actually quite rare.

5. How fast should I notice an effect?

According to the label – it takes about 90 days (3 months) for the pills to start working for real.

However, some people say they saw the results even faster.

So it’s all a matter of luck.

Therefore – I advise you to follow the label and take Propidren for at least 3 months. In this period, you should see some changes.


#8 – Final Conclusions

Up next – I will try to sum up my opinion on Propidren (in 3 ideas).

1. Great Ingredients

In my opinion – the supplement has a really good formula.

Not the best, that’s for sure – but it’s a lot better than many hair pills:

  • high dosages
  • classic ingredients (herbs)

The only downside is that there are only 3 vitamins/minerals.

2. Mostly Positive Reviews

Another thing worth noting is that many customers were satisfied with Propidren:

  • some say it’s very effective
  • others claim it works better than regular pills

There are some complaints as well – as in every product.

But overall, there are far more praises than negative reviews.

3. Overpriced

In my opinion – these pills shouldn’t cost so much.

Especially if you compare them with other products on the market.

Plus – this formula may be worth $25, but it’s surely not worth $40.

That’s why I consider Propidren a bit overpriced – despite being a quality product.


My Verdict – Is Propidren Worth Buying?

Short answer: It depends. 

My Propidren Review (2019) - Are The Side Effects Real?It’s a really good product overall – but I personally wouldn’t recommend it as a first choice:

  1. Costs too much for its actual value.
  2. Only works for hair loss caused by DHT excess.
  3. Some weird side effects are possible (though rare).

As I said – I still consider Propidren a quality hair supplement.

So if you were wondering whether it’s a scam or not – it’s certainly not.

However – I personally prefer a supplement that costs $15 less and has a better formula:

  1. Contains almost 30 different ingredients.
  2. Works for hair loss & growth in general (not just DHT excess).
  3. Effective for both men and women.
  4. Also works really fast (Propidren is also fast).
  5. Price is much better overall.
  6. You also get discounts for buying bigger quantities.

So that’s my personal pick, since I don’t have a huge budget.

But if you don’t care too much about paying some extra $15, Propidren is also a great choice.

As I said – both supplements work really well, it’s mostly the price that is different. So it’s all up to you.

8 thoughts on “My Propidren Review (2023) – Are The Side Effects Real?

  1. My husband used several products from this company, he says the pills are really helpful for increasing his hair fullness. He used to have very thin hair and now it’s a bit better, he’s been taking it for half a year I think. He also ordered the shampoo at first but stopped using it because his scalp started getting itchy. We recommend the supplement but not the shampoo.

    1. Hi Anne, thanks a lot for sharing your husband’s experience with Propidren. It’s great to hear the pills were helpful for his thinning hair.

      I don’t necessarily recommend buying the shampoo or the other products as well, because they’re an extra cost. Since I agree they’re not really effective (compared to the supplement), I don’t think they’re worth the money. Plus, the supplement itself is quite pricey, so better save some money so that you can buy it the next months as well.

      Please keep me updated with how Propidren continues to work for your husband.

  2. It made my vision blurry after the first week, I discontinued it and in a few days I started seeing normally again. I had almost one full bottle left so I gave it another try after a few months but the same problem. I tried giving the supplement to my brother in law because he also has a beginning of baldness but he had no eye problems. I don’t think he continued buying it, though. I wouldn’t recommend Propidren but maybe it works for some, I don’t know. I just think blurry vision should be on the side effects list and label.

    1. Hi Hendricks, thanks for your feedback on Propidren. I never heard of blurry vision as a side effect to a supplement. But since you experienced it twice, it’s surely not a coincidence.

      But I think your reaction is pretty rare. I checked out lots of different reviews but none mentioned sight problems. So I don’t really know the explanation, it’s probably how your body reacts to these pills.

      If you could give me more details about your hair loss, maybe I could help more. Is it caused by DHT? That’s what I believe, if you used Propidren (which is a DHT blocker supplement).

      Try to go for a product based on Saw Palmetto, as this is the best DHT blocker among all herbs. If you need any recommendations on a quality product, just get back to me and I will gladly help.

  3. This product is great, this is my third bottle and I can already see hair growing inside my bald spot, it will get covered by hair in a few weeks. Although it’s a bit pricey I say it’s totally worth it. I’m going to recommend it to my brother in law who’s dealing with serious baldness at 34. His is genetic so I’m curious whether this supplement will help him or not, either way I’m really satisfied with it!

    1. HI Zian, thanks a lot for your feedback on Propidren. I’m happy to hear you praising it, this means it was a real remedy in your case. In this case, all I can tell is to keep using it, especially if its price isn’t an issue for you.

      Regarding your brother in law, I’m also very curious whether Propidren will help or not. Since his baldness is genetic, it’s probably caused by DHT excess – which is what Propidren works best for (it’s based on Saw Palmetto). So it might be effective actually.

      However, it will probably take a longer time than in your case. Very few supplements manage to regrow hair from scratch – and out of them, most need at least 3 months to start working. So that’s a lot more than a supplement needs to speed up growth in people with normal hair. That’s basically the difference.

      Anyway, please let me know how it works for your brother in law. I’m curious to see whether it helps or not.

  4. I got keratin bonds and when I went to take them out a lot of my hair came out with it and I’m 16 I just bought this product hoping it will help!

    1. Hi Enzo, keratin hair extensions are pretty dangerous – as they’re known to affect hair roots once they’re removed. That’s why I don’t recommend this type – clip ins or flips ins are a lot safer and easier to use. But it’s too late to be sorry now.

      Regarding Propridren, I don’t think it’s a great option for your problem. From what I understood, your hair was otherwise healthy before going for the keratin bonds. It wasn’t falling out – it’s just the extensions that affected its health. Propidren is designed for DHT hair loss, which is actually a hair loss caused by hormonal imbalances. That’s surely not something you have, judging after your explanation. You’re also very young at 16, and DHT excess mostly appears in men over 35-40. That’s why I doubt this product is going to make wonders for you.

      In fact – as far as I know, this kind of supplements aren’t recommended to people under 18. That’s because your hormonal levels fluctuate at these ages, so it’s dangerous to play with that. So my advice is to give up Propidren (in case you already started taking it) and avoid any DHT blocking supplement (the ones that contain Saw Palmetto, Green Tea or others – it usually says that it’s a DHT blocker on the label). They are really dangerous at your age and they can harm you more than help you.

      Instead – my advice for you is to choose some hair vitamins. I normally don’t recommend this kind of products – but for your age and problem, I think they’re the best choice. Hairfluence is actually a good choice for your case, it also has a good price and a formula that should work for your problem. So I would recommend you switching to this instead of Propidren (or to any other hair vitamins that are not DHT blockers).

      I really hope this helps.
