My Restore FX Hair Review (2020) – Scam Or Legit?

My Restore FX Hair Review – Scam Or Legit?

 

It’s time for my Restore FX Hair review – which I chose for 2 reasons:

  • Promises to work in 30 days
  • Claims to have a breakthrough formula

But at first sight, it looks like a pretty basic supplement. Plus – it’s super pricey (almost $60 per month).

So is Restore FX Hair a scam? Judging after its promises – it has all the chances to be one.

Well – you will find every detail about this product below.

Note: This review is based on my personal opinion + research on Restore FX Hair.

So Let’s Get To The Review

Full Name: Hair Growth Vitamins from Kerotin

My Restore FX Hair Review - Scam Or Legit?Sizes: Only 1 month supply (90 pills)

Best Actual Price: $59.95 per bottle (super pricey)

Cheapest Place To Buy: The official website – you can only get it from there.

Designed For: General hair loss – it claims to:

  • regrow hair in a few weeks
  • revive dead follicles (really?)
  • stop hairline from receding

So on paper – it’s good for both men and women dealing with hair loss.

My Rating: 4 out of 10 – It’s far from the best products.

Worth Buying?: Definitely not. It’s very overpriced for what it offers:

  • not amazing formula
  • doesn’t work in 30 days for everyone
  • the effect isn’t the best

Besides – it doesn’t really keep its promises. It doesn’t work in 30 days (at least not for everyone, as it claims).

So at $60 per bottle, it’s surely not worth buying. Instead, I recommend a $25 supplement that made wonders for me.

 

 

What I Liked About It

  • Doesn’t have regular capsules, but softgels 
  • These pills are really easy to swallow
  • Some ingredients have real benefits for hair loss (more on that below)
  • Works for some people

 

What I Didn’t Like About It

  • Certain ingredients don’t have much to do with hair
  • You need to take 3 pills daily
  • Doesn’t work as fast as it claims (30 days)
  • Super expensive
  • If you buy more bottles together, there’s no discount
  • Only available on the official website(s)
  • Discontinued on Amazon

 

 


Restore FX – What It Promises


According to the official website – this product is a “science breakthrough”.

Why exactly? Well, it claims to:

  1. Regrow hair in 3o days at most.
  2. Work fast – no matter what state your scalp is in.
  3. Save the hair you have.

So basically – it claims what I haven’t seen in many hair supplements: to work in less than 1 month.

However, there’s something that caught my eye instantly:

  • The official website is based on an emotional description
  • There are no links, studies or official info (about ingredients)
  • There’s only lots of promises

So actually – it’s trying to convince people to buy using emotion and big promises.

To be honest, most supplements on this type are big scams.

They cost lots of money, promise amazing things and end up doing nothing.

So Restore FX could also be in this category. But now that you what it claims – it’s time to analyze it more closely.

 


#1 – Ingredients (8 out of 10)


To be honest – Restore FX’s ingredients don’t look any bad.

Now – I would divide them in 3 main classes:

  • Herbs & Herbal Extracts
  • Vitamins + Minerals 
  • Other Substances

So let’s take a closer look at each group.

1. Herbs & Herbal Extracts

Restore FX seems to be plant-based, since more than 50% of its ingredients are natural.

Now – some of the herbs have major benefits for hair loss, while others are less famous (and weaker).

So here are the herbs you can find in this product:

  • Saw Palmetto (500 mg) [1]
  • Grape Seed Extract (200 mg) [2]
  • Horsetail – not the extract (100 mg)
  • Pygeum Extract (75 mg)
  • Beta Sitosterol (100 mg)
  • Stinging Nettle Extract (50 mg)
  • Green Tea Extract (50 mg)

Overall – it’s not the best combination ever, but these herbs are more than decent.

2. Vitamins & Minerals

Now – Restore FX doesn’t contain as many nutrients as other products.

There are only 3 (the most essential ones):

  • Biotin (600 mcg)
  • Zinc (15 mg) [3]
  • Cooper (3 mg)
3. Other Substances

This includes amino acids and some compounds that are naturally found in our body (but their level may decrease sometimes):

  • DL-Methionine (500 mg) [4]
  • MSM (200 mg)
  • L-Cysteine (200 mg)
  • DIM (50 mg)

Conclusion

Restore FX doesn’t have the best ingredients I’ve seen in a hair supplement.

However, they’re surely not the worst ones:

  • some herbs are really effective for hair loss/growth: Horsetail, Saw Palmetto
  • other ingredients aren’t that impressive: MSM is good for joint problems (in studies for hair loss) [5]

So overall – Restore FX has some decent (but not great) ingredients.

 


#2 – How To Take It (8 out of 10)


I wasn’t too satisfied about Restore FX at this chapter.

1. The Pills

There are 2 things that make them different from others:

  • dark color
  • oily consistency

Restore FX’s pills are colored in black (similar to black seed oil pills, in case you ever tried these).

Also – they have an oily extract inside, so they come as softgels (not as regular pills, as most products).

And that’s surely not a bad thing, since:

  1. Softgels tend to be even easier to swallow – compared to gelatin pills
  2. They also have lower dimensions (but it’s not really the case here)
2. The Schedule

That’s the part I don’t like so much. Here’s why:

  • You need to take 3 pills per day
  • It’s recommended to space them out throughout the day

Why I don’t enjoy this? Because there are high chances that you forget about one – since there are 3 per day.

So for hair issues – I prefer products that require 1 or 2 pills per day, nothing more.

 


#3 – Results (7 out of 10)


Restore FX didn’t seem to work as fast as it claims – at least not for everyone.

My Restore FX Hair Review - Scam Or Legit?So let’s see what exactly this supplement can do.

Note: I didn’t try Restore FX myself – but I considered all the reviews I could find about it (only authentic ones).

  1. Some people said it started working in a few weeks.
  2. They could see new baby hairs (especially in the front hairline).
  3. Others said they didn’t notice any effect even after 3 bottles.
  4. There were some that could see a small improvement, but later on.
  5. Others complained that taking 3 pills daily is difficult.

So basically – I reached one conclusion based on these opinions.

Restore FX works for many people – but not as fast as it claims (30 days).

Obviously, just like in every product – there are both excellent and terrible reviews.

But based on the average opinions I read, this product isn’t a scam.

However, it’s not 100% legit either – in my opinion:

  • doesn’t work as fast as it promises
  • its effect isn’t the best one ever
  • costs a lot of money for what it offers

So basically – I would surely not recommend Restore FX as a hair loss/growth supplement.

There’s a much better product (in terms of ingredients) that costs only $25 per bottle. So that’s what I would choose instead.

 

 

#4 – Price (4 out of 10)


That’s by far the worst part about Restore FX.

Besides the few opinions I found about it (which were mostly negative) – it also costs way too much.

1. The Exact Price

On every website I checked, Restore FX seems to cost the same:

  1. For 1 bottle – $59.95
  2. For 3 bottles – $179.85
  3. The largest pack (6 bottles) – $359.70

Now – you might think that the 6 bottles pack has a much better price per bottle. Right?

Well, guess what:

  • it costs the same – $59.95/bottle
  • you can make the calculations yourself

Basically – the only benefit you get is the free shipping (which costs around $7, by the way).

2. Competitors’ Price

That’s the best proof that Restore FX isn’t worth buying.

So let’s compare it with Folexin – my #1 recommendation for hair loss & growth:

  • Folexin costs $25 per bottle (vs $60)
  • If you buy 6 bottles as once, you end up paying about $18 per bottle (vs $59.59)
  • Shipping costs about $5 (vs $7 here)

There’s a huge difference between these 2 – do you agree?

Besides, Folexin’s ingredients are also much better – since it contains almost 30 compounds with real benefits. 

So in my opinion – Restore FX is way too expensive to be worth buying.

At $60 per bottle, it’s just a very overpriced supplement.

 


#5 – Where You Can Buy It (7 out of 10)


In my opinion, things look pretty weird here.

1. The Sellers

Basically – you can buy Restore FX from the websites of 2 companies:

  • North Star Nutritionals
  • Best Health Nutritionals

Now – I personally believe these 2 websites belong to the same company.

And considering North Star Nutritionals is labeled as Restore FX’s producer – I believe this is the main company.

So honestly – this thing with 2 websites sounds a bit weird.

However, here’s another weird thing:

  • Restore FX also exists on Amazon (but it’s unavailable)
  • You can’t find it on Ebay or other retailers

So basically – if you want to order this supplement, you will have to choose one of those 2 websites.

2. The Prices

As I somehow expected – the prices are the same on both websites.

So there’s no reason to choose one over the other – Restore FX (and probably all the other supplements) cost exactly the same.

However, I personally wish it was available on Amazon as well. 

That would have made it more trustworthy.

 

 


#6 – FAQs


Here are the most common questions you might have about Restore FX. I will try to give you a clear answer.

Note: I might repeat some things I pointed out in the above lines, but they’re easier to spot here.

1. How many pills per day?

The label recommends taking 3 – which is a bit uncomfortable, in my opinion.

It also mentions that you can space them out or take them as your “healthcare professional” recommended.

But I personally doubt anyone asks a doctor/pharmacist before taking a supplement.

2. How long lasts 1 bottle?

Only 1 month.

It’s true there are 90 pills in 1 bottle – which seems a lot. But you’re taking 3 per day – so a bottle is only enough for 30 days.

3. Can I take it with other medicines?

Mostly – you can.

Now – if you’re talking about another supplement, there shouldn’t be any issue.

If you’re talking about a prescribed drug, you might want to ask your doctor for an opinion.

But considering it’s a supplement based mostly on herbs, I think it’s pretty safe to take with any other drug.

4. Are there any side effects?

Normally, there shouldn’t be any.

But everyone reacts differently to any ingredients – so in case you have any uncommon symptom, you should stop the pills immediately.

Also, in case your problem gets serious – consult a doctor as soon as possible.

But as I said – herbal supplements are pretty safe usually.

So you shouldn’t experience more than a stomach pain (at most).

5. How fast should I notice an effect?

According to the label – your hair should start regrowing in 30 days at most.

However, I personally doubt that:

  • very few supplements work that fast
  • you usually about 2-3 months to see an effect

That’s why Restore FX’s claims seem fake to me.

But anyway – the labels say it works in 30 days.

 


#7 – Final Conclusions


Here’s what I would remember about Restore FX.

1. Huge Promises

In my opinion, they’re hard to believe from the start:

  • claims to work in 30 days (at most)
  • says it uses a breakthrough formula

Now – there are very few hair supplements that start working so fast.

Besides, it really depends from person to person. So it will surely not work in 30 days for everyone.

That’s why Restore FX’s claims sound a little fake to me.

2. Basic Effect

As I suspected, this product didn’t seem to work so well:

  • not everyone saw an effect after 30 days
  • for some it didn’t even work after 2 months
3. Really Overpriced

Restore FX is way too expensive for me:

  • it costs $60 per bottle
  • that’s only enough for 1 month
  • if you buy more bottle together, there’s no discount

So instead of paying $60 on it – you can get a much better formula for $35 less (or even cheaper).

That’s what I would surely choose instead.

 

 


My Verdict – Is Restore FX Hair Worth Buying?


Short answer: Definitely not – it’s way too expensive for what it offers.

My Restore FX Hair Review - Scam Or Legit?But that’s not all – here’s more reasons why I don’t recommend it:

  1. Ingredients aren’t too amazing (not bad, but not too good either).
  2. Require 3 pills per day.
  3. Claims to work in 30 days – which doesn’t always happen (depends on person).

And obviously – it’s really overpriced.

In fact, that’s the main reason why I don’t advise you to try this product.

So what should you choose instead? I recommend a product called Folexin:

  • has the best formula on the market
  • works pretty fast for more people (1-2 months)
  • super affordable (from $25 to $18 per bottle)
  • works for both men and women

So if you want a great supplement without spending a little fortune – that’s what I advise you to try.

It’s the product I’m constantly using for my hair loss and I’m really satisfied.

10 thoughts on “My Restore FX Hair Review (2020) – Scam Or Legit?

  1. This thing didn’t work! I took the pills as directed and there was no improvement in my hair in 1 full month. Really disappointed, I bought 2 bottles straight just to get a better price and here it goes, no effect. Thanks for taking the time to review Restore fx, I can see myself in some of the things you pointed out, too bad I didn’t find this review earlier on.

    1. Hi there, thanks for letting me know how Restore FX worked for you. Unfortunately, you’re another person who wasn’t satisfied with it. And I totally understand your frustration, considering you paid so much money on it (about $180, that’s how much 2 bottles are).

      Have you tried asking for a refund? Restore FX has a money back guarantee, so they would be forced to refund you based on that. 

      The only problem is that it’s not mentioned how long this guarantee lasts – whether it’s 30 or 60 days. So they might use that in their advantage. 

      But if you bought it quite recently, you can try to contact them and see. Maybe you’re lucky and they agree to refund you.

  2. Hi Olly, I used Restore FX following the same schedule as you did. Here’s my experience if you’re curious to hear it: average effect versus other supplements I used (e.g. Kerotin).

    My hair used to be brittle before the second pregnancy, but the changes my body has been through have weakened it even more. So in 1-2 months after giving birth, my hair was shedding so bad! I never had this situation after the first pregnancy and there was a lot more stress back then. Anyways…

    I didn’t have too many choices since I was breastfeeding, and every supplement I looked into was not recommended during breastfeeding. I tried some local ointments but with no success. Once my baby got healthier I stop breastfeeding and started several remedies, including Restore FX. One by one, I should mention that.

    It stopped most of my hair loss but I still had enough hair falling out. And there was no improvement in hair growth, at least I couldn’t see any after 1 bottle. Maybe I should have continued to use it, but it was so pricey that I just couldn’t afford it anymore, with all that baby fuss around.

    I tried some other products that were a bit more affordable, but still not quite what I wanted. The results were better, but the price was still high. I was checking out the supplement you recommend, Folexin. It seems one of the few that would fit in my minimal budget. Do you know if it can regrow hair when there are hormonal imbalances in between? Thanks..

    1. Hi Diane, your experience with Restore FX really helps. Thanks a lot for taking your time to give all these details.

      Your experience isn’t surprising – it’s the kind of effect I would expect from this product. It’s similar to my result, actually.

      But surely – if you had taken the pills for more than 1 month, the results would have been much better.

      However, I agree with you – $60 per bottle is really pricey and most of us can’t afford paying so much on something that may or may not work.

      You also mentioned Kerotin but you didn’t say anything about it. Did it work better? I reviewed it here so I would be really curious to hear if it helped.

      Now, regarding your question about Folexin – it can regrow hair lost after pregnancy changes. But only if you’re not breastfeeding anymore (and you said you’re not). 

      However, I don’t really understand what you mean by “hormonal imbalances in between”. Do you still have any imbalances now? Because if you do, it’s probably not because of pregnancy (your body should have recovered by now). So in this case, seeing a doctor would be the best thing – because a real treatment would help the cause behind.

      Now – if you’re only talking about the hormonal changes you had due to pregnancy, Folexin should help. As your body recovered, your hair will also grow back slowly – but Folexin could speed it up a lot.

      So it could make your hair grow 3 times faster, which would be really helpful.

      Please clarify me regarding your question and I will give you a clearer opinion. 🙂

  3. I actually liked how it worked…it’s true that it took me several months to see some difference, far from 30 days. But you could feel my hair was thicker and looked fuller. I was from from being bald before, but I had some parts where my hair wasn’t as thick as it used to. Can’t tell if these pills grew new hairs, but I don’t really think they did. Rather they just increased my fullness and that’s why it looks so much better. But overall I’m satisfied.

    1. Hi Nate, thanks a lot for sharing your experience with Restore FX Hair. It’s great to hear such positive news.

      I’m personally not impressed with the results you had – especially since you needed “several” months (I wish I knew exactly how much that was – 3 or 4?). If I were you, I would have surely quit these pills after 2 months at most. It’s great that you were patient and afforded buying some other bottles. And it seems like it was worth it.

      However – for the results you had, Restore FX Hair is too pricey. I mean – you can find much cheaper products anywhere. In 3 months, I’m sure they would have the same results – or even better ones.

      So I don’t think it’s worth paying almost $60 per month for this small effect.

      But sure – it’s your money so it’s your choice. If you prefer to stick with Restore FX, just go for it. If it’s helpful and you afford it, why not?

  4. You can tell it doesn’t work after the pills, they look totally disgusting. Big and black and you can see that sick liquid inside. Almost like olives full of juice, I hate olives so maybe that’s why I couldn’t swallow these pills. If they want me to give it a chance, they should switch to gelatin pills, like every hair supplement has. Big disappointment in Restore Fx!

    1. Hi Scott, I really appreciate your honesty. I didn’t personally try Restore FX Hair, so I can’t say I agree or disagree with you. But I was also quite surprised to see the pills (in pictures).

      They look totally different from most hair supplements, which usually have gelatin pills (just like you say). But I didn’t know you can see the liquid from the outside, that doesn’t sound too good.

      The number of pills per day is also a downside – you need 3. Even if you take them together, it’s pretty hard to swallow 3 pills one after the other. Not to mention that spacing them out is risky, you will surely forget about 1 or 2 one day.

      Thanks again for sharing your experience with Restore FX Hair. You can try asking for a refund, if you didn’t take the pills. But as you opened the bottle, they might not agree to refund you.

  5. Its been a long time since I am searching and testing different products that prevent hair loss. And to be honest, I am still in a process to find something that will finally help me. I know that I lose hair because of stress, overtiredness, hormones, even eating habits, but what is the best solution? As a mom of two kids, I don’t have time to go for the long holidays to reduce my stress and overtiredness, so taking pills is the only solution for me.  

    I am happy I researched about Restore FX before buying it, 60 dollars for a product that won’t work is too much, and if I understood right you need to use six bottles, otherwise why they would sell six packs if you get rid of the problem with one bottle?. You are writing its working for some people, but I am more than sure it won’t work for me. The big red flag I give for the false information about the possibility to regrow hair in 30 days.  It’s not possible! I don’t think this product will cause harm as it contains a lot of natural ingredients; however, I don’t believe it’s going to help as well.  I will definitely have a look at your recommendation! 

    1. Hi there Snap, thanks for your opinion on Restore FX. You’ve made a great choice looking for opinions before purchasing it, because this supplement is definitely not worth it. 

      I haven’t read about anyone who actually managed to regrow hair in 30 days with this product. So it’s pretty obvious these are all fake claims, just to convince the customers. The fact that it’s also discontinued from Amazon tells a lot, in my opinion.

      I’m not really sure how old you are, but you might find more info about the potential causes of your shedding here

      Anyway – if it’s only the minor things you mention (stress, tiredness, etc.), my top recommended supplement should help. I recommend it because it’s way cheaper than most and I’ve seen how well it works. So it’s surely a potent solution against shedding. 

      If you decide to buy it, let me know how it works.
