It’s time to review JuveTress Revitalizing Hair Therapy – because it looks quite different from most hair products:
- unusual ingredients
- different mechanism
So is this product any good?
At $79 per bottle – it might be just another hair scam.
Well, I tested it out myself, so here’s the hidden truth behind.
Note: This review is based on my experience + research on JuveTress.
So Let’s Get To The Review
Full Name: Revitalizing Hair Therapy from JuveTress
Versions: Only one (3.3 oz bottle).
There was an 8 oz size in the past, but it’s not available for sale anymore.
Best Actual Price: $79 per bottle
Cheapest Place To Buy: Probably the official website (unavailable on Amazon).
Designed For: Mostly thinning hair – it helps with:
- adding density and fullness
- extra volume
- improving hair thickness
Keep in mind that it’s not a hair loss product – nor it has anything to do with hair growth.
My Rating: 7 out of 10
Worth Buying?: Not really – it’s way too expensive for what it does:
- only works for thinning hair (no hair loss or growth)
- enough negative reviews (about 50%)
- not effective for everyone
It’s surely a legit product, but I personally don’t think it’s worth the price.
If you’re looking for an affordable product for shedding or hair growth – I prefer a $25 supplement instead.
What I Liked About It
- Unique formula
- Contains ingredients that are pretty rare (in hair products)
- Smell is very light and pleasant
- Adds real volume to hair in less than a month (my case)
What I Didn’t Like About It
- Most of the ingredients are inactive (around 47 out of 50)
- Thick consistency and hard to apply
- You have to apply it twice daily
- Very expensive overall
- Little quantity per bottle (3.3 oz)
- Many unsatisfied customers and complaints
- Only available on the official website
What Is JuveTress? A Quick Overview
In a few words – it seems to be a revolutionary hair product.
- Unique formula with unusual ingredients.
- Designed to restore hair density and volume.
- One of the few products effective for aging hair.
Basically – JuveTress’s Hair Therapy isn’t the typical hair product.
It’s mostly designed for thinning hair with no volume – not for hair growth or shedding.
However, its revolutionary formula comes with a price:
- $79 per bottle
- only 3.3 oz in quantity
Surprisingly or not, this product has a pretty high percent of negative reviews (compared to others).
So now that you know the main things about it, it’s time to analyze it closer.
#1 – Ingredients (8 out of 10)
As with every topical product – JuveTress’s formula isn’t very clear:
- All ingredients are mentioned together.
- No dosages.
- There are around 50 different substances.
- However, most are inactive ingredients.
Basically – out of its 50 ingredients, most are fragrances and consistency agents.
This means its formula isn’t as good as it seems (at first sight).
Now – I divides JuveTress’s ingredients in 2 groups. So let’s take a closer look at each:
1. Active Ingredients
According to its official website – JuveTress in based on 3 substances.
These are the only responsible for its effect:
- Redensyl – a blend that promotes hair thickness and density. 
- Chinese Skullcap – prevents and fights hair loss (especially due to aging). 
- MICROSIL Volume – a recent ingredient that adds volume and shine.
Basically – JuveTress’s main ingredients are totally different from other topical products.
And in my opinion, that’s a positive thing.
Because in terms of hair thinning – these 3 ingredients look very promising.
2. Inactive Ingredients
Here the list is pretty long (over 40 substances).
However – none of these substances has an actual effect on hair. They’re mostly:
- consistency agents
So JuveTress’s effect has nothing to do with these ingredients (no matter how good they sound).
JuveTress’s formula is pretty unusual (in the good way):
- uncommon active ingredients
- 2 trademark substances
Even though it’s not as great as it seems (just 3 ingredients are active out of 50) – I personally consider it more than decent.
It’s surely not a formula that grows hair or stops shedding.
But when it comes to thinning hair – it surely helps (at least a bit).
So a product with this kind of formula must be effective – if you ask me.
#2 – Smell & Texture (7 out of 10)
I have a mixed opinion about JuveTress at this chapter (both like and dislike it).
Here’s what you should know about its consistency.
To my big surprise – this product’s scent was more than pleasant:
- pretty light but still easy to notice
- smells like a mix of herbs
- not very intense or bothering
Also, I noticed the smell remains in your hair until the next wash. But don’t worry – it’s too light to be noticed from distance.
So if you’re trying to avoid intense-smelling products, JuveTress should be fine for you.
That’s the actual problem of this product:
- really thick consistency
- doesn’t soak in instantly
- a bit hard to apply evenly
- takes a long time until you rub it all over your scalp
- leaves hair a bit greasy
So it’s not the kind of product you can apply in 2 minutes.
Since you have to use it twice daily, it’s even harder.
#3 – How To Use It (8 out of 10)
Just like every quality product – JuveTress offers clear instructions:
- You need to apply the product twice a day (for best results).
- Use a quarter-size amount every time.
- Massage with your fingers.
- Make sure you spread the product all over your scalp.
- There’s no need to rinse.
Now – there are a few things I want to clarify:
- A quarter-size amount is about 2.5 cm
- That’s what most of us use with a shampoo
- Use this quantity every time you apply the product
Basically – the directions are really clear.
The only thing I don’t like is that you need to apply it more than once a day.
That can be pretty uncomfortable – since there’s a risk that you forget about it (or you have a busy schedule).
Plus, JuveTress’s consistency isn’t the best one – so you’re going to need a while until you spread it all over your scalp.
#4 – My Results (8 out of 10)
I have actually used a bottle of JuveTress some time ago.
So I will be able to speak from experience – more or less.
1. My Background
First of all – my results won’t be very relevant:
- I was mostly dealing with hair loss
- My hair was thinning only in the ends
- The roots were in perfect health
- I had no bald spots
Besides – JuveTress claims to be effective for thinning and shedding caused by aging, which wasn’t really my case.
That’s why I don’t consider my experience with it very relevant.
2. My Results
Overall – I could see a difference while using this product:
- My hair felt a lot thicker after less than 1 month.
- That’s because it had a lot more volume.
- I also noticed less hairs falling out than before.
- However, my ends were still very thin and fragile.
Basically – what JuveTress did was to make my hair look fuller.
It actually wasn’t, but it had way more volume than before.
But based on my experience with it – I see it as a great product for scalp thinning.
On the other hand – if you have thin ends (as I did), I’m not sure it will help so much.
It might, but you need to use it for several months (most likely).
In terms of results, JuveTress does work – but mostly for:
- extra volume
- minor hair loss
- thinning scalp hair
- aging hair
I actually think it’s an excellent product for these issues – since I saw a change in less than 1 month.
However, I wouldn’t recommend it for thin ends, hair loss or growing out your hair.
In this case – a supplement would do a much better job (I speak from experience).
#5 – Other Opinions (6 out of 10)
Since my results weren’t very relevant, I decided to look into other people’s opinions on JuveTress.
In this way – you can see an unbiased perspective.
Note: I only considered authentic reviews, not general ones.
1. What People Say
First of all – I couldn’t find too many reviews on this product.
On Amazon, there was only 1 review (from a person who just began using it).
Most of the real reviews I found were on HighYa and Reviewopedia.
So here’s what people say:
- Some claim it’s really effective against thinning hair.
- Others say it adds a lot of volume.
- A few even claim their hair loss got better.
- On the other hand, some say they saw no result in 3 months.
- Others complain about the side effects.
- Some people even call it a scam.
So overall – opinions are about 50% positive and 50% negative.
Honestly, that’s not a great sign – since top hair products have over 70% positive reviews (Nutrafol is a great example).
2. Biggest Complaints
As I said – there are enough unsatisfied customers on JuveTress.
Most complaints are related to:
- No effect or improvement
- Side effects on the scalp (itching, dandruff, high blood pressure)
- Huge price
- No hair growth
Now – except for the last complaint, I tend to agree.
JuveTress doesn’t promise to regrow or grow hair faster – so it’s not designed for that. No surprise it doesn’t work.
On the other hand, it surely doesn’t work for everyone.
Actually – it doesn’t work for a high per cent of people, according to all the reviews online.
As for the price, I can’t argue that it’s really expensive.
JuveTress has enough positive reviews – but it also has lots of negative ones.
So based on that, it’s not a product I would recommend.
Besides being super pricey – it doesn’t work for a high number of people. So I just don’t think it’s worth the shot, that’s all.
#6 – Price (5 out of 10)
Honestly, JuveTress is extremely expensive for a topical product.
But let me give you more details on why I believe this.
1. The Exact Price
At this point – you can only find JuveTress on its official website:
- 1 bottle costs $79
- 3 bottles cost $213
- 6 bottles cost $402
Basically – you can order either 1, 3 or 6 months supply at once.
Obviously, the price is better if you buy more bottles at once.
However – $79 per bottle is an absolutely huge price. I personally couldn’t afford paying so much constantly.
And all this for a product that work in about 50% of customers.
For me, it’s pretty clear that JuveTress is not a wise choice.
2. Competitors’ Price
I only want to compare JuveTress with my top recommended hair product.
I’m talking about a supplement called Folexin.
- J costs $79 per bottle in the least case.
- F normally costs $25 per bottle at most.
- J is a topical product meant for thinning hair.
- F is a supplement that helps hair loss, growth and thinning.
- J is based on 3 active ingredients.
- In F, there are about 30 active ingredients.
So when it comes to thinning scalp hair and extra volume, JuveTress is helpful for some people.
But not for everyone – and it costs a small fortune.
On the other hand, Folexin works for both hair loss and thinning – and it has a decent price, in my opinion.
Plus, it treats the real cause of the problem (since it works on the inside).
That’s why I see it as a better alternative – at least for myself.
#7 – Where To Find It (5 out of 10)
Unfortunately – you can mostly buy JuveTress just from its official website:
- It used to be available on Amazon some times ago.
- However, it’s discontinued at this point.
- You can also find it on Ebay, but not too easily.
- There are just a few sellers offering it.
- Plus, it usually has an even higher price there.
So basically – the only real option remains its official website.
The good thing is that the website is totally safe – just like the brand:
- not that kind of company to sign you up for auto-shipping randomly
- also, they won’t charge your credit card without asking
- nor the will send you another month supply without your consent
In other words – it’s not that kind of questionable company, it’s an honest one.
So if you’re worried about giving out your credit card data – don’t worry. They won’t use it to charge you extra money, I can tell for sure.
#8 – FAQs
Coming up – I will try to answer the top questions about JuveTress.
Note: I might repeat something I already mentioned, but it’s easier to spot here.
1. How often you should use it?
According to the label – you need to apply it twice a day and spread it all over your scalp.
2. How long lasts one bottle?
Normally, it should last around one month.
But it depends on the quantity you’re using – and whether you apply it twice a day or not.
3. Can I take it with other drugs?
It’s best to ask for your doctor’s advice – especially since JuveTress contains some pretty uncommon ingredients.
But since it’s a topical product, there shouldn’t be any interaction with other drugs you’re taking.
4. Are there any side effects?
Apparently there are enough.
According to several reviews – some people developed:
- itchy scalp and rashes
- scalp infections
5. How often should I see a change?
The label recommend using it for 180 days – but results can appear much faster.
I saw some changes in less than one month (in terms of volume).
So it’s a pretty fast product, if you ask me.
So a product with this kind of formula must be effective – if you ask me.
#9 – Final Conclusions
Here’s how I would sum up my opinion on JuveTress (in 3 ideas).
1. Different Formula
This product doesn’t contain the same ingredients as most:
- based on 3 substances
- 2 of them are trademark ingredients
- none of the is often used in hair products
I personally see this as an advantage that makes it unique.
2. Not Effective For Everyone
According to review – JuveTress works for about 50% of users:
- many negative reviews
- a lot of unsatisfied customers
It’s true that it’s also effective for many.
But compared to other products – it has way more negative reviews (as a percent).
3. Really Expensive
To be honest, this product is extremely overpriced:
- one bottle costs $79
- you can only buy it from its official website
- there’s not cheaper option
It’s true that it has a pretty unique formula. But in my opinion, that doesn’t compensate for the absolutely huge price.
#10 – My Video Review
My Verdict – Is JuveTress A Scam?
Short answer: Definitely not – it’s a legit product.
However, it’s not a product I would recommend – I personally think it’s not worth it:
- Extremely expensive ($79 for 3.3 oz).
- Lots of complaints and negative reviews.
- Mostly effective for thin hair.
- Doesn’t regrow or increase hair growth speed.
Overall – it’s not a bad product, since it contains a pretty unique formula.
But I just don’t think it’s worth so much money (at least I couldn’t afford buying it).
So what do I use instead? A hair supplement that works not just for hair thinning – but also for:
- massive shedding
- faster hair growth
- increasing thickness
Considering it’s a lot cheaper – that’s the alternative I prefer to use.
So if you think JuveTress is a good choice for you, you should give it a shot.
But if not, I think a supplement would be a much better (and cheaper) choice.

24 thoughts on “My Review: Juvetress Revitalizing Hair Therapy (2023) – Scam Or Not?”
I bought this product from Amazon and received a broken bottle due to delivery, Amazon was nice enough to replace it at no cost for me. I was excited at first but after my third bottle I still could not see any sign of new hairs. I did not order anymore, price was not a downside for me if it really worked but it’s still a lot to pay on a product that brings no improvement, I think 4 months is a long enough period to see results. It may work for some but not for me!
Hi Dre, thanks a lot for your feedback on Juvetress. It’s really helpful to hear any real experience with this product.
I’m sorry to hear it didn’t work. I’m just wondering, do you have a general hair loss or an early/serious baldness? This product’s effectiveness does depend on that. According to the label – it’s meant for thinning hair, it does not claim to grow new hairs or improve baldness. It can help thin hair and restore its density, but that’s pretty much it.
Now – 4 months is a pretty long period, so your right, you should have seen some changes. But once again, since I don’t know the exact problem you have, it’s hard to give you any advice.
Anyway – Saw Palmetto is a really useful herb for male hair issues, since it’s a DHT blocker (that’s the main cause of hair loss and thinning in men). The herb itself is quite hard to use, so I recommend using it as a supplement (it has best results in this version).
Procerin is my top recommended supplement for male hair loss, since it has a great formula and lowest price among its competitors.
So if you need a supplement, I think that’s the best you can get. Hope this helps and if you like, get back to me with further details so that I can help more.
Hi Olly, I was just wondering if this product would be right for my hair type. I’m 68 and suffer from hair loss and thinning for about 2 years, it’s only been getting worse in the last 6 months (my husband died in this period). It’s probably because of the tragic moments I’ve been through, but I cannot find any solution. I have tried a biotin supplement from Nature Bounty, then a multivitamin from S Valley but my hair does not look like it’s on the good way, on the contrary it’s falling out more and more. I have already started getting some parts where my scalp is visible, which is terrible even at my age. I can hide them for now but if it goes on like this I will lose all my hair in one year!
I know Juvetress is expensive which is why I would like to try it. It also says to help aging hair, that’s why I think it might suit my hair. But on the other hand, you recommend treating the root of the problem from the inside, with a supplement, which make a lot more sense than treating it with a scalp product. I will make an appointment to a specialist but meanwhile I want to try something, so I’m not sure whether it should be Juvetress or not. Please give me your opinion on that.
Hi Helen, your problem seems to be pretty complex.
1) The main cause of your hair loss might be aging, genetics or a medical condition. These are the main factors behind hair loss in women of your age. You might also have a scalp problem, but that’s pretty unlikely since you didn’t mention anything. These issues are usually visible, so I would exclude that.
Do you have any medical condition? Like diabetes, thyroid problems, hormonal imbalances? Do you know if your mother or grandmothers had to deal with similar issues in the 60s? Have you started taking any supplement shortly before your hair loss started?
2) The trauma you had is what aggravated your hair loss and thinning. But since these problems existed even before the death of your husband, they weren’t caused by trauma. So I would consider it a secondary cause that only worsened your hair issues.
Now regarding the solutions – biotin is a helpful vitamin, but it can’t make miracles alone. That especially when your hair is in a bad condition, as yours seems to be. When it comes to that multivitamin you tried, it’s probably a supplement that focuses on general health. You need something designed for hair, if you have a serious problem (as you do).
Regarding Juvetress – it’s a great product for thinning hair due to aging, but it doesn’t seem very helpful for hair loss. Actually – it has lot of praises when it comes to thinning hair, but many complaints when it comes to treating hair loss. That’s why I’m not 100% sure it will help you (when it comes to your shedding).
So you can definitely try this product – just don’t expect it to make miracles and stop your hair loss. It might, but according to many reviews – it’s pretty unlikely. Instead, Juvetress will increase your volume and improve your hair’s thickness. So there should be a partial improvement.
In my opinion – seeing a specialist is the best thing you can do right now. He can study and understand your case better, have your blood tests and analyze them, so he could find the exact cause behind your problems.
Now – if you want to try something in the meantime, I would suggest a supplement based on herbs. You tried vitamins and they weren’t very effective so as far as I’m concerned – herbs should have a better effect in your case (they’re usually stronger than vitamins).
So I will recommend you my favorite supplement (Folexin), as it’s based on herbs but it also contains some vitamins. A main reason why I recommend is it because it’s really affordable, compared to others. If you decide to buy Juvetress (which is quite pricey), you will surely need to save some money with the supplement you choose. So I think this is the best option, as it’s the product I personally use and I’m really satisfied with the results.
Please get back to me after you visit your specialist and let me know how things go. Hope this helps.
Thanks for the honest opinion! I have Telogen effluvium and my hair is thinning out from the middle of my head. Given that I’m a woman, it’s really hard to cope with. I have tried about 3 products in the past year, all of them above my regular budget. Juvetress was the first one and I have been on it for more than 4 months, still my hair doesn’t look a single bit better. I wasn’t expecting it to grow my hair back but at least to stop it from thinning. That did not happen. REcently I started wearing a weave and am considering a human wig in the future if the thinning continues to progress so quick.
I appreciate that you were honest about this product but I think it is a rip-off. I tried using the refund policy and they refused to send my money back claiming I was too late. But that was less than 1 month after. Do you think trying a supplement would help more? I’ve only been on scalp solution with zero effect, so I’m thinking maybe I still have a chance with pills.
Hi Jenna, thanks for sharing your experience with Juvetress. Since you have Telogen effluvium, my first recommendation is to consult a doctor and follow the prescribed treatment (in case you haven’t already). Now – Juvetress is designed for thinning hair that is otherwise healthy. So that might be the only explanation why it doesn’t work – it’s not designed for a serious scalp condition as yours is.
I actually consider it a decent product for thinning hair, so I don’t think it’s a scam. But in your case, it probably wasn’t effective due to the severity of your problem. However, it’s really frustrating to hear they refused to refund you. As far as I know, Juvetress has a 180 days money back guarantee. So if you asked for a refund later than that, they were right not agreeing. But if it was faster, you have the right to file a complain, maybe that will convince them to send your money back.
Regarding supplements – they might work better than Juvetress, but I can’t really guarantee. As I said, my biggest recommendation is to follow the treatment prescribed by your doctor. Additionally, you can also add a natural supplement to your diet – but I would avoid multivitamins (since your prescribed treatment is very likely to contain lots of them).
Instead, try to go for a product based on herbal extracts – as they have a stronger effect overall and they’re less dangerous still. Most prescribed treatments don’t contain too many herbs, so that could add up in terms of effect. Anyway, better ask your doctor’s opinion before starting any supplement, as there’s a minor risk of interactions.
Hope this helps.
Hey Olly I had come across this product while surfing the net and I was curious. I didn’t buy it because of its high price and a few nasty reviews I read and your article proves my point too. I was right thinking the ingredients looked a bit shallow. 47/50 are inactive, that speaks a lot for me.
Thanks for writing this. I’ll share it.
Hey Shashwat, thanks for your opinion on Juvetress. Yes, there are enough downsides about it that everyone can see. The product itself isn’t bad, but it’s surely not the best choice at these money. At least that’s what I think.
In case you still need any recommendations, just let me know. It’s hard for me to give you any advice since I don’t know anything about your hair issues, what problem you have, etc. Just let me know more and I will try to help.
Hello! This is just my opinion but I’ve seen so many people criticizing this product lately that I really have to tell my view of things. I bought this for my hair that’s been thinning out probably because of my growing older (59 currently). I couldn’t see any improvement during the first bottle but I was happy enough that it lasted almost 6 weeks which is more than I initially thought. I gave it a second try and in my third month I started to notice some increase in my hair thickness, not sure if it was just an illusion or actual hair but I don’t really care honestly, as long as it looks better. The second bottle ran out faster so I imagined maybe I applied more product but when I ordered the third bottle it was the same, it barely lasted one month. I’m pleased with the results and trust this product but I’m just wondering about the quantity inside, why does it vary so much? (I know I apply about the same quantity daily so there’s no chance of having misused and applied more). I’m thinking maybe the producer is shipping larger bottle to first time customers and then decreasing the quantity for the same money. Sounds a silly thing but I can’t explain otherwise. Good product anyway!
Hi Tina, thank you so much for this detailed experience you had with Juvetress.
First of all, I’m glad to hear it helped. Considering you had a thinning without hair loss (at least you didn’t mention anything about it), I think you were the perfect user for this product. Many people tried it for hair loss and complained it didn’t work, but this product isn’t actually designed for that – just mostly for thinning hair. So this probably explains why there are so many negative reviews about it (I found plenty on HighYa). Anyway, there are still enough people who used it for thinning hair and weren’t satisfied. So it depends from person to person.
Regarding your worries about different quantites in some bottles – I can’t really tell. Your version might be true, but I personally don’t believe the producer would actually have enough time to sort new and previous customers out. Maybe Juvetress simply reduced the quantity at one point and it happened to be after you bought the first bottle. Or I don’t know, I just don’t have an opinion on that so I can’t tell.
Anyway, thanks a lot for your feedback on Juvetress and I’m glad to hear there are people who had positive results with it.
Scam!!! been using this for 3 months already and I can tell no difference in my hair, nothing thicker or fuller just the same old thin strands. This did not help albeit using it consistently, I have lost over $200 by now just on it (i also used some biotin shampoo from Amazon at $50 and no results still, another money lost). Certainly would not recommend this, for me they are scammers!
Hi Charles, I’m sorry to hear you saw no results from Juvetress’ product. But you should try getting a refund, at least for your last order. They have a 180 days money back guarantee, so if you order the products in the last 3 months, you should get a refund for all of them. The company is quite honest when it comes to refunds (that’s what I heard) so they should send your money back without any issues.
Instead of wasting $200 for no results, I think it’s worth contacting them and giving it a shot. Hope this helps!
Thanks for this enlightening review. I have been using Juvetress together with my mom, I’m 36 and she’s 70. She’s got some sort of baldness with hairs getting very thin, showing part of her scalp. She’s still got hairs but you can see her scalp through…not sure if you get what I mean.
About me, I’m very stressed at work (just got back to the office after having my second son) so I think this is affecting my hair, it’s so brittle and breaks really fast so I’m losing lots of hairs daily. It’s been 2 years after giving birth so I don’t think it’s the post pregnancy typical hair loss (though everyone says so).
Anyway, I bought Juvetress for my mom and thought I should give it a try too. Fast forward 4 months, I’m not seeing any improvement but she is. Her hair seems a bit thicker but mine is falling out just like before, as if I wasn’t using anything. What would be the cause? How can a product work for someone and not for the other, since we’re family?
Hi Georgiana, thanks for your feedback on Juvetress. You and your mom’s results with this product aren’t very surprising to me, as it’s mostly designed to fight thinning hair caused by aging. In other words, exactly your mom’s problem.
Yes – it does help with hair loss, but not in all cases. And since it has so many negative reviews and unsatisfied customers, it’s obvious that it’s not a 2 or 3-in-1 product (as some are).
So basically, it’s designed for the exact same problem that your mom has – that’s why it works for her. When it comes to you, you don’t have thinning hair due to aging – but probably hair loss due to stress (By the way, is your hair also thinning out? You didn’t mention this).
So in your case, Juvetress will probably not help too much – since you couldn’t see any big change by now. My advice would be to switch to a supplement that is designed for general hair loss (as your probably is). Folexin is my top recommendation, as it’s the product I’m constantly using (best price among the stuff I have tried). But there are many other supplements I can recommend you, depending on your budget (if you’re willing to pay more, the list is longer).
Just let me know if you would be okay with using a supplement instead of a topical treatment, as Juvetress is. I hope this helps.
Thank you for all the great insight!
There is no doubt Juvestress worked well for me, my hair was definitely thicker, with evidence of new hiar growth after just two months of treatment. However I emailed the company regarding serving size, a question they still have not clearly answered. They did explain the gel needs to be rubbed deeply into your scalpe for 30 seconds. A practice I started right away, that’s when the side effects started. I began feeling pressure all around head, within days those side effects grew into dizziness and a few other neurological symptoms. Still waiting to hear back from Juvetress!
This is extremely disappointing as I think the prodcut works very well. Do you think it is causing an innate immune response, which could be elevating NF-kappa beta, or TNF alpha, or a hormonal change?
Hi Todd, thanks for your feedback on Juvetress. So from what I understood, these side effects started only after you started rubbing the gel on your scalp for half a minute. Before that, what was your technique of applying it?
Since the symptoms appeared straight after changing the way you applied the product, it’s surely because of the composition. That’s why I would need to know how exactly you applied it before. I’m guessing you didn’t rub it for so long, probably.
I can’t tell for sure which is the reason behind those side effects. But if you ask me, it’s probably an immune response – especially if it starts straight away. Your body’s chemical mediators might mis-recognize the product as a harmful agent, so that’s where the dizziness and pressure could come from. That’s just an assumption, anyway – as I’m not sure what chemical mediators could level. Anyway, I pretty much doubt it has anything to do with hormones. In this case, it would take longer until the symptoms appear (maybe even days) and they would worsen with time.
Another thing that would help me understand it better: how long do these side effects last? Do they go away after a few minutes or last for several hours?
Please let me know the answer and I will try to dig deeper into this.
Great review Olly, I’m using this product and can tell the difference in the shape of my hair. It’s been almost a year since I’m on it and my hair feels stronger, thicker and not as brittle as it used to. It’s expensive but I no longer use the recommended amount of product, this helps it last longer so it’s a saving.
My son is going to the gym daily for 3 months and he’s been on some protein supplements that his trainer recommended. Lately he started losing some of its top hair thickness. He’s 27, healthy and with no history of baldness in our family. He used to have thick hair all the time and noticed this change in the past month. I tried to help him and investigated all causes but he seems completely healthy. After reading several articles I started thinking if it could be his protein supplement causing this hair loss? He’s convinced it has nothing to do but the hair loss started only since he’s been going to the gym and taking those proteins. As far as I know, working out can’t possibly affect one’s hair…so it’s just the supplement left.
Do you think there’s a connection? Also could he start using my Juvetress for his problem? I don’t want to waste it if it’s no good for him, it’s not that cheap after all. Thanks!
Hi Lina, thanks a lot for sharing your experience with Juvetress. I’m happy to hear you find a way to get good results from it while making it affordable.
As for your son, protein pills/powder are among the few supplements that can cause hair loss. Actually, it’s not the proteins themselves – it’s some additives that certain supplements contain (especially creatine and inorganic growth hormones). These 2 compounds can increase the level of DHT, which causes hair loss in men. So I’m pretty sure this is the cause. Your son picked (or was recommended) a probably less quality brand, so he ended up suffering from the side effects.
So first of all, he should quit that certain supplement he’s on. He can still take protein supplements, but he should make sure to choose a quality and organic one. Amazon has plenty of brands that have a high quality and lots of reviews, so he can check before he makes the actual purchase.
If that’s the actual cause behind his hair loss (and I believe it is), it should go away on its own in a few months, as long as he quits the current supplement. If he wants to speed that up, Juvetress might be helpful. It’s not a product designed for hair growth, but it can give the impression of thicker and fuller hair. So this might help him overall.
Since he’s young and healthy, there’s no point taking additional supplements that boost hair growth. The less pills, the better – especially if you don’t really need them. That’s what I think.
I hope this helps you guys!
I HAVE USED JuveTress A COUPLE OF TIMES AND DON’T LKE IT. THEREFORE PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME ANY MORE. THANK YOU
Hello Barbara, sorry to hear about your issue. But you have to know that I’m not connected to Juvetress or its company in any way. I simply made a review of it telling how it worked for me. There’s no way I can help you with order issues because I don’t work for the company or anything like this. I think you should insist on contacting them until they finally answer (I know many people complain they don’t answer from the first try).
I hope this helps.
I’ve got some sort of thinning, hair not falling out but getting a lot thinner with every year. I heard this product is good for thinning but it doesn’t seem to help. Do you think I could get a refund on empty bottles? I read lots of complaints so I kind of doubt that.
Wanted to hear what is your opinion on Minoxidil? Do you think it might work for thinning? A friend recommended it to me, I was hesitant because I know there’s no turning back after you start using it. So I don’t want to make my hair look worse than it does now, if by any chance I could not use it in the future at one point. I know you prefer herbal supplement but this is a no for me, I do no believe in that. Thanks anyways!
Hey Mike, thanks for your feedback on Juvetress. This product is indeed designed for thinning hair, so I’m surprised you couldn’t see any small improvement.
Regarding the refund, I’m not sure if they agreed to refund you for those empty bottles. A lot of people have trouble getting a refund for unopened bottles, that’s why I doubt they would agree to refund you for used ones. But you can still try and maybe you’re lucky.
As for your problem – it’s probably an early baldness. Your hair is thinning in general, from what I understood (not in certain areas of your scalp). So most likely, it’s because of an excess in DHT levels (that’s the cause is over 60% of men).
Now – there are several DHT blocking products, but you said you don’t want anything that is herbal based so I will respect that and not get into any details on this kind of products (your bad, though).
You asked about Minoxidil, which is one of the few FDA approved products for male hair loss/thinning. It might actually work in your case, because your hair loss is in a very early stage. In many cases, Minoxidil is associated with Finasteride – which is a supplement with a similar formula. It’s also FDA approved but it requires a medical prescription.
As you already said, Minoxidil (and Finasteride) has a big downside – it causes reverse hair loss if it’s ever stopped. So you would have to use it for the rest of your life if you want to maintain the results. That’s why I don’t usually recommend this kind of products. Besides, they also cause serious side effects quite often (especially Finasteride).
So it’s up to you if you want to give them a shot or not, I can’t tell you what to do.
In case you decide to get them – you have 2 options:
1) Get Minoxidil from your local pharmacy and visit a doctor to get a prescription for Finasteride. He will see if you’re an eligible patient and prescribe it to you depending on that.
2) Get both from an online retailer, with a monthly subscription. Keeps is my top recommendation at this chapter, because it’s a lot better than its competitors (Hims, for example). The advantage here is that you can get an online consultation with their specialists and get a prescription without visiting any local doctor.
Also – Keeps seems to have a much higher approval rate than its competitors (Hims is known to offer prescriptions to very few people, despite having many customers that pay for the consultation. Also, they’re not refunded if rejected.)
You can also try laser devices, if you afford investing in a long term product. But instead of getting a popular laser cap like the ones from Capillus, I recommend a cheaper device instead. It costs less than half and it does the same thing. Anyway, laser caps aren’t a must, but in cases like yours – they can be really helpful. So if you afford one, you might give it a try.
I really hope this tips help you.
I found lot’s of negative feedbacks about Juvetress. Some people reported that their hair loss started rapidly after using this serum. Can you tell me- whether should I use it or not?
I just don’t want to lose my hair further.
Hi Gilberia, I don’t consider JuveTress a scam, even though I am aware that it has lots of negative reviews. That’s exactly why I don’t have a great opinion on it either, despite the fact that it worked for more.
I cannot tell you whether you should use it or not because I can’t really tell how it’s going to work for you. But I personally recommend oral supplements because they have a much better effect (and the risk of hair loss is much lower). But the decision is all yours.
Hope this helps!
