It’s time to review Cel MD Hair Stimulation – a product designed for regrowing hair.
But considering its high price, is it worth buying?
And if yes – which of its 3 products should you choose? Are all of them worth buying?
Well, I tried to dig deep into this product so here’s the truth behind.
Note: This review is based on my own experience + research on Cel MD.
So Let’s Get To The Review
Full Name: Stem Cell Hair Growth by Cel MD
Versions: There are 4 different products:
Best Actual Price: Starting from $52 for the shampoo + conditioner.
The serum and vitamins are a bit pricier.
Cheapest Place To Buy: Amazon (lower prices than on the official website)
Designed For: Regrowing existing hair – it claims to:
- decrease and even stop hair loss
- thicken hair strands
- stimulate follicles
Basically – all products are meant for hair growth.
My Rating: 7 out of 10
Worth Buying?: Not really – the products itself are good, but I don’t think they’re worth the money.
Instead of paying $50 on a shampoo + conditioner (or $175 for all 4 products) – better choose a $25 supplement that does the same work.
You’re saving lots of money in the end.
What I Liked About It
- Nice smell and consistency in all 3 products
- Improved my shedding in less than 2 months
- Many authentic reviews online
- Available in several retailers
What I Didn’t Like About It
- Extremely overpriced (all products)
- No dosages in shampoo, conditioner and serum
- Shampoo can’t be bought alone (just with conditioner)
- Ingredients aren’t anything special
- Many complaints about price and side effects
#1 – Ingredients (8 out of 10)
Cel MD’s formula doesn’t look amazing – mainly because most products are topical:
- No dosages
- Active and inactive ingredients are put together
- Hard to tell which are the main compounds
When it comes to the supplement, things look a bit better.
But let’s take a quick look at all 4 products.
1. Shampoo + Conditioner
The ingredient list isn’t very clear, but I tried to research all ingredients.
So here are the most important ones:
- Nettle Extract – decreases hair loss and alopecia. 
- Ginseng Stem Cells – promotes hair growth. 
- Arginine – grows and regenerates hair.
- Biotin – best vitamins for hair growth and health.
However – since there are no dosages, it’s hard to tell the percent of these ingredients in the formula.
Since we’re talking about topical products, it’s probably a small one.
This product has a pretty interesting list.
You can’t find these ingredients in a lot of hair products:
- Asparagus Stem Cell – promotes new hair cell growth.
- Sophora Root Extract – can improve hair loss in some cases. 
- Castor Oil – one of the most popular remedies for hair growth.
- Eucalyptus Extract – improves hair structure. 
Overall – these ingredients don’t have a lot of scientific data behind. That’s why I can’t guarantee their effect isn’t a hype.
The formula is so-so: compared to other supplements, it’s not bad – but it’s not amazing either.
- Super Biotin – that’s actually regular biotin in a very high quantity.
- Zinc – a deficiency can cause shedding. 
- Horsetail – useful for thickening hair.
There are some other vitamins and minerals – but not as important as these 3.
One more thing worth mentioning – biotin could be dangerous in such a high dosage:
- some scientists believes it causes acne
- there are lots of acne complaints in biotin supplements
- the recommended dose is around 1000-1500 mcg
- there are 4000 mcg in these pills
Cel MD’s products have a decent formula – even though none is impressive:
- most have no dosages mentioned
- based on less-famous ingredients
So scientifically speaking, there isn’t enough evidence that its ingredients are useful.
However, in terms of formula – they’re surely not bad.
#2 – Smell & Texture (10 out of 10)
In terms of consistency – Cel MD’s products are really good:
- Shampoo has a soft citrus smell.
- However, it doesn’t stay in the hair for long (about 1 day).
- Also, it lathers well enough.
- So there’s no need to use a huge amount (the regular quantity should do).
- Conditioner smells a lot more intense.
- It’s the kind of smell that might bother sensitive people.
- Serum doesn’t have a noticeable smell.
Overall – each of these products are easy to apply and have a nice texture.
The serum is a bit too liquid – but what else could you expect?
#3 – How To Use It (9 out of 10)
Here’s what you should know about these products’ instructions:
- Shampoo and conditioner should be used with every wash.
- Normally, using them twice a week is fine enough.
- Serum requires to be used daily for 4-6 weeks.
- However, you need to apply it on damp hair.
Basically – you’re somehow forced to wash your hair and use these 3 products daily, if you want the best results.
And that’s not very comfortable, to be honest.
When it comes to the supplement – nothing new:
- you need 2 pills per day
- there’s no advice as to when you should take them
My recommendation is to take them after eating – in order to avoid any stomach cramps.
#4 – My Results (7 out of 10)
I tested out Cel MD myself – not necessarily for reviewing it, just to see if it can help.
1. My Background
A few years ago, my hair was falling out quite badly:
- ends got 70% thinner (compared to before)
- they were extremely fragile
- my hair was really dull, frizzy and looked terrible
However – the hair loss was the actual root of everything.
So what was causing it? According to my research – a mix of hormonal imbalances, DHT excess, stress and maybe bad nutrition.
So would Cel MD help?
2. How It Worked
First of all – my results weren’t 100% relevant.
I only tried the shampoo + conditioner, without the other products.
That’s because each of them was extremely expensive – so I couldn’t afford buying all per month.
My results with Cel MD were okay – but it was far from a miracle maker (for me):
- I used 2 bottles of shampoo and 1 of conditioner.
- That was enough for about 1 month and a half.
- My hair loss decreased with about 30-40% in the end.
- Also, my hair had a lot more volume.
- But my ends were still fragile and easy to break.
So basically – this shampoo and conditioner did help, but just partially.
It’s true that I only used it for less than 2 months – so that’s not a very relevant period.
But considering its very high price, I don’t really think the results were worth it.
I could have got the same improvement (or even a better one) with a $25 supplement.
Cel MD worked for me – not amazingly, but well enough for 1.5 months.
However, it’s not a product I would use or buy again.
In my opinion – it’s simply way too expensive for what it does.
Besides, it doesn’t treat the actual cause of hair loss (since it’s a topical product and only works on the outside).
For half of these money – I recommend a much better product (supplement):
- works from the inside on the outside
- treats the actual cause behind
- effect is much better (and faster)
So instead of spending so much on Cel MD, I prefer to use a cheap supplement that works even better.
#5 – Other Opinions (7 out of 10)
In order to create an unbiased review, I tried to include other customers’ opinions on Cel MD.
Note: I only considered authentic reviews, not general ones.
1. What People Say
Fortunately – I found enough real opinions on these products.
But as I expected, opinions are quite mixed up:
- Some people praise the shampoo for leaving hair really soft.
- Others say it’s expensive but worth the price.
- A few others claim it did help them with shedding.
- Many complain about its side effects (on the scalp).
- There are enough saying it didn’t work for them.
Now – these opinions are available for all 4 products, not just the shampoos.
Some people praise their effect, while others say they’re totally useless.
Even though it’s normal for a product not to work for everyone, Cel MD has enough negative reviews.
2. Biggest Complaints
As I said – there are a lot of negative reviews on these products.
Most are related to:
- Poor or non-existent effect
- Extremely high price
- Side effects
I found several reviews complaining about scalp allergies or rashes after using these products.
Considering there are over 5 – this can’t be a coincidence.
Not to mention that Cel MD’s price is indeed exaggerated.
And even though it did work (partially) for me, its effect doesn’t seem to be really good in everyone.
As it’s normal, Cel MD has mixed reviews:
- Some people say it really helps hair in general
- Other say it’s a waste of money that does nothing
However, there are enough unsatisfied customers (even though not all are so because of the poor effect).
So in my opinion – that’s the best proof that Cel MD isn’t such a great choice. Especially for so much money.
#6 – Price (3 out of 10)
To be honest – I consider Cel MD’s price exaggerated:
- no trademark ingredients inside
- dosages are probably average (no info on this)
So in my opinions, all their products are extremely overpriced.
1. The Exact Price
Surprisingly, the best prices for Cel MD’s products are on Amazon:
- Shampoo + Conditioner cost around $52 (8 oz bottles).
- Serum costs $75 per box,
- Vitamins cost around $40 per bottle.
As you can see – the prices are absolutely huge. Especially for this quantity.
I personally could never afford to buy them all on a monthly basis.
Besides – the shampoo runs out really fast (especially if you use it daily, as recommended).
But there’s another issue:
- on Amazon, you can’t buy the shampoo alone
- the only way to get it is as a set (+ conditioner)
- however, the conditioner lasts a lot more
In my opinion – that’s a strategy meant to force you to buy both.
I personally doubt the conditioner helps too much – since you only apply it on the actual hair (not on the scalp).
That’s why I personally think they only sell them together.
2. Competitors’ Price
I will only compare Cel MD with my #1 recommended product for hair growth – a supplement called Folexin.
- F costs about $25 per monthly supply, CM costs around $40 (the supplement).
- F has about 30 different ingredients, CM under 15.
- Both offer a discount when you buy more bottles (CM just on its official website).
- You can get F for about $19 per bottle.
- CM costs about $22 per bottle.
In my opinion – Folexin is a much better choice (as price and ingredients).
Now – Cel MD has a good price if you buy the 4 months supply The discount is significant.
But considering its ingredients, I don’t think it’s worth so much.
It’s my personal opinion, but there are so many cheap options that it’s not worth spending so much on this kind of product.
All of Cel MD’s products are extremely overpriced.
So considering there are lots of cheaper alternatives on the market, I really don’t recommend Cel’s products.
You can get products that are similar (if not better) for a much lower price.
So why buy Cel MD for a double cost?
#7 – Where To Find It (9 out of 10)
Fortunately – Cel MD is available in several retailers.
But out of these, only 3 are worth buying from:
- The official website
Now – my top option is Amazon, as they have by far better price than the official website.
However, I mostly recommend Amazon for lower quantities (1-2 bottles).
For buying 3 or more monthly supplies at once – go for the official website:
- discounts available for larger packages
- auto-shipping option with 15% off
So if you want to use Cel MD for a longer period, its website is the best choice.
Regarding Ebay – I recommend it if you want to buy the shampoo without the conditioner (or the opposite).
There are higher chances that you find it available in this form.
#8 – FAQs
Coming up, I will try to answer the top questions about Cel MD.
Note: I might repeat something I already mentioned, but it’s easier to spot here.
1. How often you should use it?
Depending on the instructions from the label:
- shampoo/conditioner: in every wash
- serum: after every wash, daily
- vitamins: 2 pills/day
So basically – for best results, you should use the first 3 products daily and the pills twice a day.
2. How long lasts 1 bottle?
Regarding the pills – it’s simple, it’s a 30 days supply.
However, the shampoo lasts a lot less (especially when used daily).
3. Can I use it with other drugs?
You can use the topical products with any medication.
But if you also want to try the vitamins, my advice is to ask your doctor first. That especially if you’re following a long-term treatment.
4. Are there any side effects?
The label doesn’t mention anything – but I could find some complaints about:
- itchy scalp
- allergies and dandruff
So the topical products can cause this kind of reactions – that’s why it’s essential to take extra care.
5. How fast should I notice an effect?
These products need about 1-2 months to start working.
It surely depends from person to person – but from what I read, they’re pretty fast in terms of effect.
So give them around 2 months.
#9 – Final Conclusions
Here’s how I would sum up my opinion on Cel MD (in 3 ideas):
1. Pretty Fast
In terms of effect – Cel MD works pretty quick (for a topical product):
- started working after 1.5 months in my case
- some people say the saw changes after 1 month
Now – it will surely not stop your hair loss in this time.
But it might improve it (which most shampoos don’t).
2. Mixed Opinions
Even though some people were satisfied with it – many weren’t:
- lots of complaints about price and side effects
- many said it doesn’t help at all
But as I said, Cel MD was also effective for many people.
So it’s somehow a matter of luck.
3. Extremely Overpriced
That’s the #1 reason why I couldn’t possibly recommend these products:
- cost a lot more than they value
- no original/trademark ingredients
- no high dosages
The price only gets better if you buy 3 or 4 months supply at once. But that’s way too risky – since it might not work.
So overall, I don’t advise you to spend so much money on Cel MD.
Especially when there are so many cheap alternatives on the market.
My Verdict – Is Cel MD Worth Buying?
Short answer: Not really – even though the products themselves are pretty good.
However, for what they do – they’re extremely overpriced:
- All 4 hair products cost way too much.
- Formula doesn’t have any original ingredient.
- No special compounds overall.
- Enough unsatisfied customers.
Basically – there are lots of people saying Cel MD wasn’t worth the money.
There were indeed enough satisfied customers, but I still think that for a $50 product – Cel MD isn’t worth buying.
Besides, most of its products are topical. Which means they only work on the outside (they don’t treat the actual cause behind).
So for these money, Cel MD isn’t really worth it.
What should you use instead? I recommend a supplement:
- treats the hair loss from the inside
- works much better (and even faster)
- has a much better price overall
So instead of spending $50 on Cell MD’s shampoo + conditioner (or $175 on the whole set) – better choose a supplement instead.
