My Review: New Nordic Hair Volume (2023) – Does It Work?

My Review: New Nordic Hair Volume (2020) - Does It Work?

It’s time to review New Nordic Hair Volume – because it looks like an interesting supplement:

  • designed for hair growth and extra volume
  • based on natural compounds
  • excellent price

So does this supplement really work?

Is it any better than its cousin Hair Gro (from the same brand)? Or it’s just a scam?

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

Note: This review is based on my own opinion + research on New Nordic’s Hair Volume.


So Let’s Get To The Review

Full Name: Hair Volume from New Nordic

Form: Either tablets or gummies.

I personally recommend the tablets (gummies are usually full of sugar – so they’re not as healthy).

The regular version is the 30 days supply for both – but you can also find 60, 90 or 180 days versions.

Best Actual Price: Around $12 per month (for the tablets). Gummies cost about $18.

Cheapest Place To Buy: Probably Amazon

Designed For: Supporting hair health – which involves:

  • increasing growth speed
  • improving hair density and fullness
  • fighting against hair damage

It mostly helps hair that is naturally healthy (not affected by stress, hormonal imbalances, etc.)

My Rating: 7 out of 10

Worth Buying?: It depends.

It’s a good deal for the money – but it’s not one of my top recommended supplements:

  • not very strong formula
  • mostly effective for growing out healthy hair
  • doesn’t decrease all cases of hair loss

So if you have healthy hair and a tight budget, this product might be a good choice.

But I personally recommend a supplement that worked much better for both hair loss & growth (in my case).


What I Liked About It

  • You only have to take 1 pill per day
  • Many positive reviews and satisfied customers
  • Really effective for adding volume
  • Also increases hair growth rate (but mostly in healthy hair)
  • Available in several retailers
  • Excellent price (for all versions)


What I Didn’t Like About It

  • Formula is pretty basic and ingredients have lower dosages
  • Pills are thicker than most
  • Many users complain about side effects
  • Not effective for hair loss (especially serious cases – hormonal imbalances, stress, etc.)



What Is Hair Volume? A Quick Overview

Shortly – it’s another supplement from New Nordic.

This brand offers many products for different affections.

Now – as you can tell by its name, Hair Volume has 2 major benefits:

  1. Adds extra volume and density
  2. Increases hair growth speed

In other words, it’s not a hair loss supplement – nor does it help with stress, hormonal imbalances, etc.

That’s why it’s not a product I would personally recommend. Not as a first choice – at least.

Other than that, it has a really low price (like most New Nordic supplements, actually).

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


#1 – Ingredients (7 out of 10)

I wasn’t very impressed by Hair Volume’s formula:

  • ingredients are pretty weak overall
  • most herbs that don’t have clinical evidence behind

Compared to New Nordic’s Hair Gro – this product seems to have similar ingredients, but in lower dosages.

That’s why I’m not a big fan of this formula.

I also think it could mostly help a healthy hair (in the best case).

Anyway – I would divide these ingredients in 2 groups:

  1. Herbal Extracts
  2. Minerals/Vitamins

So let’s take a closer look at each.

1. Herbal Extracts

Hair Volume contains only 3 herbs:

  1. Apple Extract – promotes keratin production and strengthens hair strands. [1]
  2. Millet Extract – can decrease shedding in some cases.
  3. Horsetail Extract – the best herb against thinning hair.

Basically – except for Horsetail, I wasn’t very familiar with these herbs.

I found little info about their hair benefits, that’s why I don’t have an excellent opinion on them.

2. Minerals/Vitamins

This supplement could be better at this chapter as well.

Compared to other products – it contains few vitamins/minerals.

Plus, it lacks some of the essential ones (Niacin, Vitamin B, etc.).

  1. L-Methionine – a deficiency can weaken the hair and cause shedding. [2]
  2. Panthotenic Acid – prevents gray hair.
  3. Zinc – a low level can affect the hair and produce massive fall out.
  4. Copper – just like zinc, a deficiency is dangerous for hair. [3]
  5. Biotin – the best vitamin for hair health.


Hair Volume’s formula is pretty weak overall – in my opinion:

  • doesn’t contain essential ingredients
  • many of its herbal extracts are quite unknown
  • dosages could be higher overall

So I would not recommend this product to someone suffering from stress, hormonal imbalances or other issues.

If your hair is normally healthy – Hair Volume might help.

But I would surely not recommend it for hair loss (despite its low price).



#2 – How To Use It (9 out of 10)

Let me tell you a few ideas about Hair Volume’s pills and usage.

1. The Pills

Their #1 problem is size.

Compared to most supplements on the market – Hair Volume’s pills are a bit thicker:

  • come as tablets (not capsules)
  • no gelatin cover
  • pretty large dimensions

Now –  the pills are surely not impossible to swallow.

In fact, once you get used to them – it should get quite easy.

But compared to other supplements, it’s worth noting that these pills are larger and thicker.

2. The Schedule

That’s a great advantage of Hair Volume.

It’s one of the few products that only require 1 pill per day:

  • you can take it at any time throughout the day
  • just make sure you swallow it with plenty of water

So this sort of compensates the large dimensions drawback. 


#3 – Results (8 out of 10)

I don’t have a personal experience with Hair Volume.

As I never tried this supplement myself, I can’t share my own results with it.

I did use the “Hair Gro” supplement from the same brand – but they’re not the exact same things.

For this reason – I tried to look for other customers’ opinions.

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

1. What People Say

Hair Volume has an average of 4 stars (out of 5) on Amazon.

Considering it has over 900 reviews – that’s a really high grade.

So here are some of the most common thoughts about it:

  1. Some people say the pills really improve volume.
  2. Others claim they’re great for growing hair faster.
  3. There are a few who noticed a decrease in their hair loss.
  4. However, most only had nutrient deficiencies.
  5. On the other hand, there are many complaints as well.
  6. Some people say the pills also grow body hair faster.
  7. Others claim they can’t see any small difference.
  8. A few others complain about side effects.

So Hair Volume has mixed opinions – but more than 50% are positive.

That’s an excellent proof that the supplement itself is effective – but not in all cases.

2. Biggest Complaints

As I said – I found plenty of negative reviews, besides the positive ones.

Most of them were complaining about:

  1. No change or improvement (even after several months)
  2. Pills are too large and thick
  3. Side effects
  4. Hair loss actually worsened

Since I haven’t tried Hair Volume myself, I can’t speak from experience.

But there’s one thing you should know.

This supplement is mostly designed to help hair that is overall healthy (no hormonal imbalances, stress, damage, etc.).

So that’s a main reason why it’s not effective in so many cases.


Hair Volume has mixed reviews – but enough of them are positive.

So if you thought this supplement might be a scam, it’s not the case at all.

However – I wouldn’t recommend it as a first choice:

  • not effective for hair loss in general
  • works best for hair that is quite healthy

It’s a great choice as a general hair health product (especially for the money).

But if you really want a product that grows hair fast and decreases most kinds of hair loss, I recommend something else.



#4 – Price (10 out of 10)

This is probably the biggest advantage of New Nordic’s products.

Most of them have really affordable prices – and Hair Volume makes no exception.

1. The Exact Price

Amazon has the lowest prices overall:

  1. Tablets cost $12.65 as a listing price (30 days supply).
  2. Gummies cost $18 per bottle (30 days supply as well).

However, both have small discounts often times.

Now, these prices are really low – compared to most supplements on the market.

It’s true that Hair Volume doesn’t contain great ingredients – so it has no reason to be pricier.

But even so, it has a really affordable price.

New Nordic also has an official website – but surprisingly, prices are much higher there:

  • 1 month supply of tablets costs $22
  • 1 bottle of gummies costs $18 (around the same as on Amazon)
2. Worth It Or Not?

In terms of price – it’s definitely worth the money.

If you buy it from Amazon, the price is super low – so it’s surely worth that.

However, I wouldn’t recommend this supplement as a first choice:

  • mostly helpful for healthy hair
  • not designed for hair loss (especially if it’s caused by hormonal imbalances)

So even though it’s a cheap product – it’s not effective in all cases.

If you’re dealing with hair loss, I don’t really recommend it.

In case you only want to grow your hair out (on a budget), it’s a pretty good choice actually.


#5 – Where To Buy It (9 out of 10)

Fortunately – New Nordic’s products are available in many retailers.

Hair Volume is actually available in all retailers selling New Nordic’s products:

  • Amazon
  • Ebay
  • Walmart
  • Walgreens
  • Other online pharmacies

You can also find it on New Nordic’s official website.

But as I said above, most of the prices are higher than on Amazon (except for the gummies, which I don’t recommend).

So if you want the very best price – Amazon remains the best choice.


#6 – FAQs

Coming up, I will try to answer the top questions about New Nordic’s Hair Volume.

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

1. How many pills per day?

Good news here – you only need to take 1 tablet per day.

If you’re going for the gummies (which I don’t really like), you need to take 2 daily.

2. How long lasts one bottle?

Both the tablets and gummies are meant to last for 30 days.

So in most cases, a bottle is one month supply.

3. Can you take it with other drugs?

I would recommend asking your doctor first (especially if you’re on a long term treatment).

But since it doesn’t have very strong ingredients – you will probably get a positive verdict.

It’s only recommended that you take Hair Volume a few hours before/after other pills.

4. Are there any side effects?

I found a few complaints on this topic – most users mentioned:

  • headaches
  • skin irritation and rashes
  • stomach cramps
  • nausea

However, they’re not extremely common – so you will most likely not experience them.

5. How fast should I notice a change?

The label doesn’t mention anything here.

But from what I read, it takes about 2-3 months to see an improvement.

Some people swears they could see an effect from the first month – but these are rare cases.

So you should give it at least 2 months.



#7 – Final Conclusions

Here’s how I would sum up my opinion on Hair Volume (in 3 ideas).

1. Formula Could Be Better

As I said before – I wasn’t impressed by this supplement’s ingredients:

  • most have no hair studies behind
  • dosages are lower than in other compounds
  • pretty basic formula overall

It’s surely not a useless product.

But if your hair is in a bad shape – I doubt it could be very helpful.

2. Great Price

If you ask me, that’s the best thing about Hair Volume:

  • really low cost overall
  • all products are decently priced
  • easy to find on Amazon

It’s true that its ingredients aren’t excellent – so it would be unfair to cost a lot.

But even so, Hair Volume is really affordable for all budgets.

3. Not Meant For Hair Loss

That’s an essential aspect.

New Nordic’s supplement is designed to add volume and stimulate growth – not for:

  • decreasing hair loss
  • reducing breakage
  • fixing hormonal imbalances 

So it should be effective for a hair that is normally healthy.

But if you’re dealing with severe hair loss, I personally consider it too weak.


My Verdict – Is Hair Volume Worth Buying?

Short answer: It’s a good deal for the money – since it’s super cheap.

I recommend it in 2 cases:

  • You want extra hair volume without using topical products
  • You want to grow your healthy hair faster

If you’re in one of these situations and you have a tight budget – I recommend Hair Volume.

However, it’s not my top choice for:

  1. Hair loss
  2. Growing out unhealthy hair
  3. Strengthening or reducing hair breakage

Since it has some pretty weak ingredients (for that), Hair Volume isn’t going to help much.

At least that’s how it seems (according to many reviews).

So what should you use instead? I recommend a stronger supplement called Folexin:

  1. Decreased my severe hair loss completely in 2 months.
  2. Increased my growth speed a lot (almost 3x).
  3. Lowest price among all similar products.
  4. Works for both men and women.

Now – Folexin is a few dollars pricier, but it’s way cheaper than any other quality supplement.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t include New Nordic’s products here (despite being really affordable).

So as you can get Folexin for $18 per bottle, it’s not that expensive to me.

But I certainly recommend it for anything that involves hair growth/loss.

For the money – it’s the best product I ever used.

10 thoughts on “My Review: New Nordic Hair Volume (2023) – Does It Work?

  1. I think this is better than Hair Gro. I used that one first and ended up switching to this one, for me it’s better. I don’t have any hair loss but I love how it makes my hair feel, it’s softer and still looks fuller. 2 months and I can tell the difference. Not sure if it works for hair loss or not but I really recommend it for volume, it’s a bargain for everyone. Thanks for your review! Jill

    1. Hi Jill, your experience with both New Nordic’s Hair Gro and Hair Volume is really appreciated, thanks for sharing it. I personally consider Hair Gro a better supplement overall (especially in terms of formula). But you don’t have to agree with me, that’s for sure.

      Hair Volume is actually really effective for adding fullness or density (just as its name says). But keep in mind that it doesn’t actually make your hair fuller – it only makes it look so. But anyway – if you’re not dealing with hair loss, I agree it’s a great product for the money.

       Rinsing your hair with apple cider vinegar can also boost volume on the long term (in case you’re interested in a natural remedy). Thanks again for your feedback on Hair Volume.

  2. Hello Olly, great website that you have here. I have been particularly interested in this product for a while so glad to see you reviewed it. 

    I have thyroid problems, following a prescription therapy for over 2 years but I am still not satisfied with the way my hair looks. Not sure if you know, thyroid imbalances make hair very thin and frizzy so it ends up breaking all the time. My hair looks better currently but it is still not as healthy as it used to be before the thyroid changes. I have not tried many pills (I can recall some bear gummies and then something like Hair Infinity, sorry about the names). 

    A friend told me about New Nordic Hair Volume but she has always had nice thick hair. You say that it will help healthy hair most, so maybe this is why she was satisfied. For my problem it doesn’t seem to be the right thing, does it? I would like to try it but do no want it to be in vain so I’m waiting for any opinion you might have and thank you.

    1. Hey Betty, I’m sorry about your thyroid problems. But I’m definitely aware that they are one of the main causes of hair loss in women. And unfortunately – even when you’re taking a right treatment, the hair doesn’t always recover completely. That seems to be your case as well.

      First of all, you should continue the treatment and keep in mind that it’s not the reason why your hair is still not healthy. Some pills can cause hair loss – but it’s not the case of thyroid drugs. It’s actually the condition itself that is affecting your hair. But from what I have seen, you’re well aware of that.

      Regarding New Nordic’s product – you’re totally right about your friend. As her hair is thick and healthy, these pills will surely help her. But they aren’t strong enough to solve all your hair problems, which are far more complicated.

      You mentioned you used 2 products. I think you’re talking about Sugar Bear’s gummies and Hairfinity – which are both decent products, but they’re pretty similar to Hair Volume:

      – formula is pretty weak for serious hair problems

      – mostly effective for hair that is generally healthy

      I personally would not recommend any kind of gummies, because they’re full of sugar and can cause side effects very often (especially acne).

      In your case, I think you need a supplement based on herbs. Most products are based on vitamins, which aren’t strong enough for serious problems like yours. But herbs are usually more powerful, that’s why I always prefer products based on these extracts (especially internal ones).

      I don’t really know what budget you’re on, so I will recommend you my favorite supplement (Folexin). It’s probably the cheapest one in this category but it works the same as more expensive ones (in my case at least). But in case you need more recommendations, here are my top picks among hair supplements.

      Other than that, I’m not really sure what could help you since your problem is clearly thyroid. But try to add a supplement to your diet for a few months and see how things go. And please let me know in the future. I really hope this helps you.

  3. Hey Olly. I know this might seem like a dumb question but how does the the pill taste?
    You mentioned the pills being big and hard to swallow. I have problems swallowing pills, even the smaller ones. In the pictures they seem to be capsules that I could split open. If so, is the medication bitter and does it leave an aftertaste?

    1. Hello Dave. Don’t worry, the question isn’t dumb at all. Hair Volume’s pills are indeed big and thick, so they’re a bit harder to swallow than most similar products. But the pills aren’t actually gelatin capsules (as it’s usual) – but tablets.

      This means you can’t open them up and use only the powder inside. In tablets, the powder is mixed up with the coating – so you can’t actually open the pill. But what you can do is cutting it into half and taking it such. This would make every pills easier to swallow, as the dimensions would be fairly smaller.

      As for gelatin capsules – it’s not recommended to open them. The capsules usually has a protection role, so it allows the powder inside to be properly absorbed (stomach acid may decrease its absorption normally, that’s why it’s placed inside the capsule, for protection). And yes – the powder also has a bad taste in most cases (which is another reason why it’s placed in a tasteless gelatin capsule).  

      So you can cut tablets into 2. But I don’t recommend cutting (opening) capsules, because their effect would decrease. Luckily, New Nordic’s supplement comes as tablets, which you can cut anytime. So there’s a good point in these thick pills.

      I hope this helps.

  4. I am recovering from breast cancer and lost all my hair. It is now coming back very slowly. It is about an inch long after 5 months. Do you recommend Folexin to speed hair growth?

    1. Hi Pat, sorry to hear about these issues but it’s great that you started your recovery. Folexin helped me a lot in terms of faster hair growth – and since your hair is healthy from what I understand, it should help even more. But additional to Folexin, I also recommend you a couple of things:

      – Rinse your hair with green tea after every wash. This will reduce any fall out and will keep your roots nourished and hydrated, stimulating growth.
      – You can use hair fibers to hide any parts of your scalp with less hair density (if there are any). Caboki’s product is my top pick.
      – Try adding this excellent shampoo to your hair care routine. It’s the best shampoo I personally used and it can increase your hair growth speed dramatically.
      – I also have a guide on growing hair faster using several tips, it might really help you.

      I really hope these tips help you. Let me know how they work in a few months. Good luck!

  5. I’ve been using New Nordic Hair Volume for maybe a year. It does work to promote hair growth and my hair does seem a little thicker. But the results take time to see. I’ve been struggling with hair loss since I had a Brazilian Keratin treatment in 2010. I might give Folexin a try.

    1. Hey Dianne. Folexin has some stronger ingredients than New Nordic Hair Growth, especially since it contains several herbal extracts. It’s true that results take time, just like you say but I personally would recommend you Folexin more than New Nordic’s product, it should help more on paper.
