It’s time to review Ultrax Labs Hair Surge – which is a pretty popular hair loss/growth shampoo:
- many positive opinions
- quite professional
- based on caffeine
However – its high quality comes with a cost.
At about $70/bottle, this shampoo is far from a cheap one.
So is it worth all these money? Or it’s just another hair growth scam?
I tried to dig deep into this product and find out the truth behind.
Note: This review is based on my opinion + research on Ultrax Labs’ product.
So Let’s Get To The Review
Full Name: Hair Surge from Ultrax Labs
Versions: Only one (8 oz/bottle)
Best Actual Price: Around $70
Cheapest Place To Buy: Amazon (they have discounts very often)
Designed For: General hair growth – it promises to:
- restore follicle vitality
- stimulates new regrowth
- decrease hair loss and thinning
Basically – it’s the kind of shampoo that works for both hair loss and growth.
My Rating: 6 out of 10
Worth Buying?: Definitely not – but mostly because it’s too expensive:
- works just as good as cheaper shampoos
- needs to be used 5 times a week
- one bottle doesn’t last more than 1 month
I personally recommend using this supplement instead of shampoos.
You can also use a shampoo – but mostly as an additional remedy (effect is much weaker than with supplements).
What I Liked About It
- Formula based on ingredients with clinical evidence behind
- Very nice citrus smell
- Many positive opinions from previous customers
- Easy to find in most retailers
What I Didn’t Like About It
- Doesn’t lather very well from the start
- You have to use it 5 times per week (for best results)
- One bottle doesn’t last for more than 1 month
- Enough unsatisfied customers
- Extremely expensive for its quality/quantity
#1 – Ingredients (8 out of 10)
Hair Surge has a pretty good formula, if you ask me:
- based on strong ingredients
- its top compounds have clinical evidence behind
- 3 active ingredients known for their hair benefits
Now – this product also has the typical shampoo problems.
It doesn’t give out any dosages and it mentions active and inactive ingredients all together.
But overall, it has a promising formula.
So let’s take a look at its 3 active ingredients.
It’s the main ingredient from Hair Surge.
This compound is used as CaffinoPlex – which is a blend of several caffeine extracts:
- blocks DHT excess and reduces consequent hair loss 
- stimulates hair follicles
- extends follicle life cycle
- similar effects to Minoxidil (in terms of intensity) 
Normally – this compound fights dandruff and scalp inflammation.
However, in Hair Surge it’s used against thinning:
- strengths roots and follicles
- promotes thickness and healthy hair growth 
- also adds volume
3. Saw Palmetto
This herb is probably the strongest natural DHT blocker.
Since DHT excess is a major cause of hair loss (especially in men) – Saw Palmetto’s effect is extremely helpful:
- blocks the enzyme converting testosterone into DHT 
- decreases overall effect of DHT
- very helpful in male pattern hair loss
Overall – Hair Surge’s formula looks more than decent:
- contains classic ingredients with real hair benefits
- its active compounds have studies behind
I personally wouldn’t expect miracles from a shampoo.
That’s because it mostly improves the external symptoms (it doesn’t treat the problem behind).
But in terms of ingredients – Hair Surge is quite potent.
#2 – Smell & Texture (8 out of 10)
In terms of consistency – this shampoo is good but not perfect.
Hair Surge has a really pleasant scent, if you ask me:
- based on a fruity smell
- you can feel the citrus tones easily
- however, it’s not very intense
- doesn’t stay in the hair for more than 1 day
Now – citrus flavor is my personal favorite, that’s why I’m a fan of Hair Surge’s smell.
But overall, it’s not too light nor very intense either.
That’s why I think most people would probably like it.
From this point of view – Hair Surge is a bit different than most shampoos:
- consistency is slightly thicker
- doesn’t lather very well
- you need to apply it twice in order to get a good lather
- works well on color treated hair
Basically – you need to use a higher quantity than you would use in regular shampoos.
And there’s one more thing.
One of the common complaints I found was that it tends to dry hair (in some people).
So it’s probably not the very best choice for women with frizzy curls.
#3 – How To Use It (8 out of 10)
Fortunately – Hair Surge has some really clear directions:
- You have to use it like any other shampoo – on wet hair.
- Apply a few pumps on your hair (insisting on the roots).
- Massage and let it sit for 2-5 minutes.
- Rinse normally.
Depending on the greasiness of your hair, use the shampoo twice in every wash (or not).
According to its instructions – it’s recommended to use it 5 times per week (for best results).
I personally think that is way too much.
Most people wash their hair 3 times/week (at most).
So washing it 5 times a week would be really uncomfortable – at least for me.
That’s the only downside I found about Hair Surge’s schedule.
#4 – Results (7 out of 10)
I don’t have a personal experience with Hair Surge – as I never tried the product myself.
For this reason, I will try to analyze previous customers’ opinions.
In this way – you can see the whole perspective.
Note: I only considered authentic reviews, not promotional ones.
1. What People Say
In order to be unbiased – I will only look at Amazon’s reviews for Hair Surge.
Now, this product has an average of 4 stars (from over 7000 reviews).
Honestly – that’s a pretty good number.
It makes it clear that Hair Surge is far from a scam.
So here’s what most people tell:
- Some say it really helps with growing hair.
- Others claim you can see results in 2-3 months (but only if you use it 5 times/week).
- A few others state their hair doesn’t fall out as badly as before.
- Many complain about a tingly sensation when you apply it.
- There are also enough unsatisfied users.
- Most of them claim the product doesn’t work almost at all.
- Also, some believe many positive reviews are fake.
Basically – Hair Surge has mixed reviews, which is normal.
But since it has so many praises (in terms of effect) – I’m quite sure it’s a legit product.
2. Biggest Complaints
As I said, there’s quite a high number of negative reviews.
Most are complaining about:
- No effect even after several months.
- Very expensive for the quantity.
- Doesn’t lather from the first application.
- You have to use it way too often (5 times a week).
- Bottle runs out very fast (because it’s used too often).
- Certain positive reviews are actually fake.
In my opinions – most of these complaints are real.
It’s obvious that no product will work for everyone.
So I’m sure Hair Surge doesn’t work for a pretty high amount of people.
As for the other complaints, I’m quite convinced they’re authentic.
So don’t imagine this shampoo is perfect – because it’s far from that.
Hair Surge has a lot of positive reviews and satisfied users.
However – it also has enough complaints.
Considering its huge price/quantity – I would probably not recommend it.
If you want to get a real hair growth/loss effect, I strongly recommend going for a supplement:
- much cheaper
- treats the actual problem on the inside
- effect appears even in 1-2 months
#5 – Price (3 out of 10)
In my opinion – Hair Surge is extremely overpriced for its actual value.
That’s why it’s not a shampoo I would recommend any soon.
With so many decent alternatives (that work even better) – why spend so much on this product?
1. The Exact Price
Hair Surge’s price is about the same in all sellers:
- Standard price is $69.99 per bottle.
- There are 8 oz (236 ml) in one bottle.
- However, there are often discounts and sales.
- At the moment I’m writing this review, there’s 14% off (in all sellers).
- So the actual price for Hair Surge is $59.99.
Now – either it’s $60 or $70, the price is still absolutely huge.
We’re talking about an 8 oz bottle, after all.
And besides, it doesn’t have any unique trademark ingredients – but 3 active compounds that are quite easy to find (as a producer).
For this reason, I couldn’t possibly recommend Hair Surge.
There are so many cheaper shampoos with much stronger ingredients.
2. Competitors’ Price
I won’t compare Hair Surge with any other hair shampoo.
That’s because, in my opinion – if you really want to make the most of your money, you should go for a supplement.
It’s generally cheaper and works much better.
So my #1 alternative to Hair Surge is a supplement called Folexin:
- HS costs $60-$70 per bottle.
- F costs $25 per bottle (as a standard price).
- HS doesn’t have a lower price if you buy a higher quantity.
- Instead – F comes as cheap as $18 per bottle when buying a larger pack.
Basically – Folexin is a much better choice in terms of price.
But in terms of effect, the difference is even higher.
I don’t recommend topical products as a #1 treatment for hair loss/growth.
You can use them as an additional product – but your top choice should always be a supplement (or internal product).
The effect is much better in this way.
Hair Surge’s price is absolutely huge:
- costs around $60-$70 per bottle
- there are only 8 oz in one bottle
Since you use it 5 times per week – a bottle of Hair Surge won’t last more than 1 month.
For this reason, I strongly suggest going for a supplement instead.
At least if you really want to see a strong effect without paying a small fortune.
#6 – Where To Find It (10 out of 10)
Despite its high price – Hair Surge is quite easy to find in most sellers.
Its official website might be everyone’s top choice.
However – I recommend buying it from Amazon:
- free shipping (whether you buy additional products or not)
- higher discounts overall
- refunds are treated more seriously
Now – Ultrax Labs is a trustworthy company.
So buying directly from their website wouldn’t be a problem (in terms of safety).
But I personally believe Amazon has more advantages overall.
There’s also Ebay that sells Hair Surge – but it’s more dangerous in general.
#7 – Final Conclusions
Here’s how I would sum up my opinion on Hair Surge (in 3 ideas).
1. Decent Formula
As I said in the beginning – this shampoo has a good formula (but not an amazing one):
- main ingredient is a caffeine blend
- other active compounds are herbal based
- also contains ketoconazole
Basically – its ingredients have clinical evidence.
But none of them is a trademark compound or a purified extract.
So despite being a decent formula, it’s not the best one I have seen in a shampoo.
2. Runs Out Fast
According to the label – Hair Surge should be used 5 times a week.
This means 2 things:
- quite uncomfortable (takes a long time)
- one bottle won’t last too much
Actually – a bottle will probably run out in less than 30 days.
This assuming you follow the recommendations from the label.
Since there are only 8 oz per bottle – this can’t be enough for more than a month.
3. Way Too Expensive
In my opinion – it’s one of the priciest shampoos I know:
- costs around $60-$70
- there are only 8 oz per bottle
- typically lasts 1 month (at most)
And in terms of formula – Hair Surge is far from the best shampoos I have seen.
For this reason, I personally think it’s not worth the price at all.
That especially when you have so many cheaper alternatives that work even better.
My Verdict – Is Hair Surge A Scam?
Short answer: Definitely not – it’s a legit product in terms of effect.
However, it’s surely not a shampoo I would recommend:
- Extremely expensive for its real value.
- Needs to be used 5 times a week (for best results).
- For this reason, a bottle doesn’t lasts more than 1 month.
In terms of effect, it does work for more than 50% users.
But there are enough complaints (also regarding its effect).
So there are many customers who didn’t see any change after several months.
For this reason – I couldn’t possibly recommend Hair Surge at $70 per bottle.
There are enough quality shampoos on the market for a much lower price.
I personally recommend Oxford BioLabs’ shampoo – as it’s the most professional one.
However, I don’t recommend shampoos as a #1 treatment for hair loss/growth.
Instead – I strongly recommend supplements:
- price is a lot lower overall (even under $30/month)
- effect is much stronger
- treat the actual problem from the inside
- work much faster in general
- effective for both men and women
So if you really want to see a big change in your hair fast – supplements are my top choice.
They’re a lot cheaper than shampoos overall, so they make a better option.
