It’s time to review SeaNu Hair Supplement – a product that caught my eye for 2 reasons:
- Different from most supplements
- Mostly based on herbs
So does this product really work? At $40 per bottle – it might be an actual scam.
For this reason, I tried to dig deep into this supplement and find out the truth behind.
Note: This review is based on my own opinion + research on SeaNu.
So Let’s Get To The Review
Full Name: SeaNu Hair Health Formula from IVL
Sizes: Only one month supply (60 capsules)
Best Actual Price: Around $40 per bottle
Cheapest Place To Buy: Either Amazon or IVL’s website (same prices)
Designed For: General hair health – its promises include:
- increases hair strength and flexibility
- nourishes hair and scalp
- promotes hair health
It’s not meant to fight hair loss or grow hair faster – so it’s more of a general hair health product.
My Rating: 7 out of 10 – A bit overpriced, if you ask me.
Worth Buying?: It depends on your budget.
It’s a really good supplement for general hair health – but that’s about it:
- not amazing for hair growth/loss
- pretty slow effect
- very expensive (compared to others)
I personally prefer a $15 supplement that saved my hair from shedding in less than 3 months.
What I Liked About It
- Formula is based on herbal extracts
- Pills have average sizes and they’re easy to swallow
- Really good ingredients overall
- More than 50% positive reviews
- Available on several retailers
What I Didn’t Like About It
- Only designed for general hair health (not for hair loss/growth)
- Pretty slow effect (around 3 months)
- Enough negative reviews
- Too expensive for its value
What Is SeaNu? – A Quick Overview
In a few words – it’s “a herbal alternative to cosmetic approaches”:
- designed to improve hair’s general health
- based on natural remedies
- contains extracts derived from the sea
Basically, this supplement claims to improve your hair’s condition as an expensive cosmetic treatment would.
However – instead of going through the actual procedure, you only need to take these pills.
Sounds cool, doesn’t it? Well, it’s not all that great:
- Quite expensive for the actual results
- No major benefit (like hair growth, etc.)
- Needs about 3 months to start working
So even though it’s a promising supplement, SeaNu isn’t as amazing as I initially thought.
But now that you know the main things about it, it’s time to analyze it closely.
#1 – Ingredients (9 out of 10)
That’s what makes SeaNu different from most supplements:
- formula based on herbs
- uncommon ingredients
Honestly – this formula is the best thing about SeaNu, if you ask me.
Herbs tend to have a stronger effect for hair (compared to vitamins/minerals).
That’s why I consider it a really high-quality product – in terms of ingredients:
- Niacin – improves hair health and boosts growth.
- Biotin -it’s the best vitamin for healthy and strong hair. 
- Zinc – a deficiency can cause hair thinning. 
- Cistanche Tubulosa Root Extract – promotes scalp health. 
- Saw Palmetto Berry Extract – it’s the best herb against DHT excess.
- Beta Sitosterol – just like Saw Palmetto, it can improve hair issues caused by DHT excess.
- Green Lipped Mussel – can be helpful in scalp inflammation.
- Laminaria Japonica Extract – it’s also helpful for a healthy scalp. 
- PABA – can prevent graying hair. 
- Horsetail Extact – it’s the best herb against thinning hair.
- Chorella Cracked Cell Powder – nourishes hair roots and follicles.
- Quercetin – can prevent massive hair loss. 
- Silica – it’s helpful for increasing hair strength.
Basically – it’s not the very best formula I’ve seen in a supplement (some contain 30 different ingredients – all with major benefits).
But it’s surely a really good one (especially since it’s based on herbs).
In terms of ingredients – SeaNu looks really good:
- many herbal extracts with strong effects
- some uncommon compounds
As I said – it’s not the best hair formula I know (especially for this high price).
But it definitely deserves a high rating, if you ask me.
So when it comes to formula, SeaNu is a great hair product (better than 75% of its competitors).
#2 – How To Take It (8 out of 10)
Here are the things you should know before trying SeaNu.
1. Pills Facts
Fortunately – you shouldn’t have any trouble swallowing these pills:
- made of gelatin
- normal dimensions
- quite easy to swallow with enough water
In terms of look – SeaNu’s capsules are like most hair supplements.
So if you’re afraid of horse pills, it’s not the case here.
2. The Schedule
Here’s what the label recommends:
- you need to take 2 pills per day
- they can either be taken together or separately
- it’s best to take them with food (or after eating)
Basically – it’s the same schedule as in most supplements.
One pill per day would have been easier – but very few products require such a low number.
In most cases, you need 2 or 3 capsules daily. So SeaNU isn’t that bad from this point of view.
#3 – Results (8 out of 10)
SeaNu is one of the few products I review without actually trying.
Since I never used it, I cannot give out my own experience with it.
However – I tried to check out other customers’ opinions (in order to create an unbiased review).
Note: I only considered authentic opinions, not promotional ones.
1. What People Say
I checked out SeaNu’s page on Amazon – it probably contains the most unbiased reviews on the Internet.
Out of 61 reviews, it has an average of 4 stars (which isn’t too bad).
So here’s what most people think about it:
- Some customers say it made their hair a lot thicker.
- Others claim it helped grow new hairs.
- A few say it needs about 3-4 months to start working.
- Some others claim they couldn’t tell any difference.
- A few others say it doesn’t help at all.
Basically – there are both positive and negative opinions, but the largest number are from happy customers.
When it comes to unsatisfied ones, there’s enough talk.
2. Biggest Complaints
Most unsatisfied customers complain about:
- Very high price
- Poor effect
- Slow or no improvements
Now – I definitely agree with the #1, as this formula isn’t worth $40 (if you ask me).
But as I haven’t used the pills myself, I can’t talk about their effects.
Anyway – since there’s more than 1 negative review, I’m sure these complaints are real.
So SeaNu probably doesn’t work for a certain per cent of people (which can be an issue).
SeaNu has a lot of authentic opinions from previous customers.
Though more than 50% are positive, there are enough unsatisfied users:
- pills require a long time to start working
- not effective for everyone
So considering the high price of this supplement, I would not recommend it.
I personally prefer another product (that I had best results with) – because it’s considerably cheaper.
#4 – Price (5 out of 10)
Even though it’s not the priciest supplement ever – SeaNu is quite expensive.
So here’s what you should know about its cost.
1. The Exact Price
SeaNu’s prices are the same on Amazon and its company’s website:
- Costs $39.95 per bottle.
- That’s the quantity for one month.
- You get a discount for buying more bottles at once.
- For 3 bottles, you end up paying $35 per bottle.
- For 6 bottles, the price is about $25 per bottle.
To be honest – these prices are too high, if you ask me.
Paying $40 per bottle for a supplement is way too much (at least for me).
Considering that you would need to pay this amount (at least) 3 months in a row – it sounds even pricier.
It’s true there are discounts when buying more bottles at once.
But I personally would start with 1 bottle – as buying 6 from the start is a bit risky (you don’t even know if the product works).
So in my opinion, SeaNu should be at least $10 cheaper.
2. Competitors’ Price
I only want to compare this product with my #1 recommended hair supplement (Folexin):
- Both products have good formulas.
- S contains around 15 different ingredients.
- In F, there are twice (about 30) – so it has a better formula.
- S normally costs $40 per bottle.
- You can find F for $25 normally.
- Both supplements offer a discount if you buy more bottles.
- At its lowest, S costs $25 and F costs $18 per bottle.
Honestly, both product have good offers overall.
But Folexin seems way better for me (in terms of price/quality ratio).
Since it has a better formula and it’s still $15 cheaper – I would choose it instead of SeaNu.
I just think you’re making a much better deal overall.
#5 – Where To Buy It (9 out of 10)
SeaNu’s supplement is pretty easy to buy online.
You can find it available in several retailers/websites – including:
- Lucky Vitamins
- IVL’s official website (producing company)
However – I couldn’t find it on Ebay or Walmart, so it’s most likely unavailable there.
Now, regarding the best price – both Amazon and IVL’s website have the same offer:
- one bottle costs $39.95
- you get a discount for buying more bottles at once
So if you want the lowest price for SeaNu, any of them would be a good choice.
#6 – FAQs
Coming up – I will try to answer the top questions about SeaNu.
Note: I might repeat something I already mentioned, but it’s easier to spot here.
1. How many pills per day?
You need to take 2 – either together or you can space them out throughout the day.
2. How long lasts one bottle?
A bottle is a one month supply.
There are 60 capsules inside and you need to take 2 per day – which means 30 days.
3. Can I take it with other drugs?
SeaNu is based on herbal extracts – so the risk of interactions with other drugs is lower than in other supplements.
But even so, it exists.
So my advice is to ask your doctor’s opinion first (especially if you’re on a long term treatment).
4. Are there any side effects?
Among all the reviews I read about SeaNu, I found very few complaints regarding side effects.
So from this point of view, I think it’s a pretty safe supplement.
5. How fast should I notice an improvement?
According to most customers – it’s not a very fast supplement.
On an average, it needs about 3 months to start working.
So you need to use it for this amount of time until you notice a real effect.
But even so – this formula is better than 75% of its competitors.
#7 – Final Conclusions
Here’s how I would sum up my opinion on SeaNu (in 3 ideas).
1. Herbal Based
My favorite thing about this product is its formula:
- really good ingredients
- more herbal extracts than in most supplements
- high dosages
I’m personally a big fan of herbal remedies for hair.
So I will always praise the supplements based on herbs (rather than on vitamins + minerals).
2. Pretty Slow Effect
According to most of the reviews I read – SeaNu isn’t too fast:
- needs about 3 months to start working
- no effect in the first month
Obviously – it depends from user to user.
But in most cases, it’s going to need time to start working.
3. Too Expensive
In my opinion, SeaNu costs too much for its actual value.
At $40 per bottle, it’s not very affordable for everyone (on a monthly basis).
Though it’s a quality product – I personally couldn’t afford this high price.
So I think it should be at least $10 cheaper.
My Verdict – Is SeaNu A Scam?
Short answer: Definitely not – it’s a really good product actually.
Even though I haven’t tried it myself, I have a pretty good opinion on it.
And that’s mostly due to its original herbal-based formula.
So would I recommend it? Not always:
- Mostly effective for general hair health (not growth or shedding)
- Too expensive for its actual value
- Not effective for everyone (enough unsatisfied customers)
- Pretty slow effect
As I said – SeaNu is definitely not a bad product at all.
So if you think it’s worth the money, I surely recommend it.
I personally don’t think it’s worth the money – especially since I use a supplement that is $15 cheaper, works way faster (for me) and has an even better formula.
But as I said, it’s up to you and what you actually need.

4 thoughts on “My SeaNu Hair Supplement Review (2023) – Is It A Scam?”
Do you think this could work against hair shedding? I bleached my hair so it got really damaged at the ends, so I had to cut them off. But now I’m started to lose a lot of hair, it’s falling out from the root. My hairdresser suggested I should take a supplement to strengthen my roots, but I can’t find the thing she recommended. So I found this instead. Do you think it’s good for my problem? I’ve never been on a hair supplement before so I want to make sure I’m choosing the most appropriate thing.
Hey Jessica, sorry to hear about your issue. If your hair started falling out 1-2-3 months after the bleaching, it might be the actual process causing it. Bleaching can affect your hair’s structure and roots and it can weaken it in the end. In rare cases, hair can start falling out immediately after the process (but this means it was severely affected). In your case, it was probably damaged by the bleach – but only a bit.
So that’s the actual cause behind your hair loss. You did cut off the ends, but that has nothing to do with the roots. If they were also affected during bleaching, there’s not much you can do about it on the short term.
Now let’s get to the solutions. Regarding SeaNu, it’s not a bad choice for your case at all.
Normally – I wouldn’t recommend it for hair loss, as it’s not designed for that. But your case of hair loss is more special, because it’s caused by an external factor (bleaching). So basically, you don’t have any problem inside (like hormonal imbalances, a medical condition, poorly nourished follicles/roots or even an allergy to something). That’s why any supplement that can strengthen and nourish hair should work for you.
So SeaNu should be effective as well. Now – I don’t really know how much you’re willing to pay for a hair supplement. This one is quite pricey, in my opinion – especially for your needs (as most hair supplements would work in your case).
Therefore, if you don’t want to spend a lot on a hair supplement, you can either:
1) Choose a product from Amazon, as there are many under $25. The only downside is that some might work better and some might not work that well, depending on their ingredients. That’s why I think it’s better to follow one of my recommendations.
2) Go for Folexin – which is my #1 recommended product. Its low price is one of the top reasons why I recommend it, but it also has one of the best formulas I know. Anyway, it’s a cheap product that works great for more severe problems – so it should solve your quite easily.
3) Try some hair vitamins (a supplement mostly based on vitamins, not on herbs). Though I usually don’t recommend this kind of products, they would work quite well in your case. Hainfinity or Hair Burst are some good example, since both are quite affordable.
You could also try rinsing your hair with apple cider vinegar, which strengthens the roots and reduces the fall out. Other than that, try to have a balanced diet for the sake of your hair (healthy foods will increase its recovery) and to stay hydrated. Avoid using hot tools as much as possible – and if it’s really necessary, only use professional straighteners or curlers.
I really hope this helps you!
Not sure if some pills with algae powder would stop my fall out when Amazon’s top rated shampoo didn’t. It doesn’t look that good to me, honestly… I saw it on Amazon and wanted to look deeper but I never found another supplement for hair with algae. I’m not sure about trying it, thanks for the review.
Hi Gail, thanks for sharing your opinion about SeaNu’s product. I actually think it has a really good formula – compared to other supplements from the market.
It’s true that most don’t contain algae and related ingredients, but that’s what makes SeaNu unique. And it also contains many of the usual ingredients in hair supplements, so I wouldn’t criticize its formula. The only issue is that it costs too much for what it really contains and does. That’s why it’s not a product I would normally recommend.
However, I suggest you to check out these 7 supplements – they are the best hair products I know and no matter which you chose, you would be choosing wisely. They have very varied prices, depending on what you afford. But you can find excellent products even at lower prices (the more expensive ones are usually famous brands, so that’s why they are pricier).
I hope this helps you.
