Nutrafol: Does it Work?

Guest post by K Ashton

Ok, so I've said for a while that I would be trying the American hair health supplement, Nutrafol. I recently decided to purchase three bottles from Amazon, and I have been using this supplement for around 10 weeks now.
What attracted me to this supplement was the fact that it contains many ingredients that have worked well for my hair, such as saw palmetto, therefore I held high hopes for this natural supplement.

As many of you will know, I have been using HR23+ for quite some time now, as it works for me, but in order to make this review of Nutrafol completely fair, I decided to come off HR23+ during the time I used Nutrafol.

During the 10 weeks using Nutrafol, I did not notice any significant changes in my hair. The one positive thing was that I did not lose any more hair, which is something that many other products have failed to do for me. My hair doesn't feel as thick as it was during my time using HR23+, so for me that's a slight negative for Nutrafol, as hair density is very important to me at this stage of my life.

All in all, I would say Nutrafol is probably worth trying if, like me, you suffer from early stages of male pattern baldness. The science behind this supplement is pretty valid, so I definitely wouldn't label it as a scam. I think, if I hadn't discovered HR23+, I would probably have opted for something like Nutrafol, but as things stand, I didn't see any evidence, even though I only tried it for 10 weeks, that Nutrafol is particularly effective for my hair.

I shall go back to what I was using before, but if you're looking to try Nutrafol then I would suggest using it for a longer period than I did (12 weeks minimum) to get the full potential of what this supplement can do for your hair.

Here is my full breakdown of Nutrafol, based over a ten week treatment period:
  • No real prevention of hair loss, but no considerable increase in hair fall.
  • No hard evidence of new hair growth. 
  • No change in hair thickness and density.

Hair Growth Products for Autumn Season

Guest post by K Ashton

You may not realise it, but for most of us, our hair goes through different changes during each season, and my hair is a prime example of this pattern. So, in order to keep well on top of my hair loss, I like to make slight tweaks and alternations to my hair care routine at the turn of every season.

Mid autumn, along with early spring, tends to be a time of year when I shed the most hair. Seasonal hair loss can be a real headache at times, especially if you are already prone to baldness and thinning hair.  So, action must be taken to help prevent unnecessary hair fall.

Here are eight handy hair growth products that I currently use at this time of the year. If you are noticing excess hair shedding, then be sure to try some of these... 

1 OGX Biotin & Collagen Shampoo

I actually had this shampoo in my last top picks post, and I have added it again, simply because it's probably the best shampoo I have ever tried (and I have tried a fair few). If it's thickness, volume and less hair fall that you're after, then be sure to try the amazing Biotin & Collagen shampoo by OGX. It's also dirt cheap at just £6 a bottle.

2 Biotin 10,000mcg

Ok, so we've established that Biotin won't cure any form of hair loss, but what it does do is help promote healthy, thicker hair growth. 10,000mcg might be a bit high in dosage, so you can always opt for a lower amount if you prefer. It doesn't matter what brand you use - as long as it's Biotin, it should do the trick!

3 Kirkland Minoxidil

Minoxidil is the only medically approved topical treatment for hair loss, and it comes under many brand names, including the most well know Regaine (Rogaine). It really doesn't matter that brand you go for, as long as it's minoxidil, that's the main thing. This stuff really can work, but patience is key. some men can take up to a year to see results, so make sure you are in it for the long haul if you decide to try it.

4 HR23+ Hair Health Supplement

HR23+ is by far and away the best supplement of its kind on the market. Packed with an array of hair beneficiary ingredients, be sure to try this multi-vitamin hair supplement if you suffer from early stages of baldness and thinning hair. It's a little pricey, but worth every penny.

5 TRX2 Serum

Ok, so I haven't been the biggest fan of TRX2 products since the brand launched in 2011 (particularly their supplement, which didn't work for me at all), but their serum seems to be a popular choice with men and women battling thinning hair. I have only just started using it myself, and the early results seem good. It could certainly be a good investment if you are looking for a safer alternative to Minoxidil.

6 TRX2 Foam

Like the serum, I've not had the chance to try this new addition to the Oxford BioLabs line for very long, but if you are not keen on the idea of putting Minoxidil on your scalp (Minoxidil does come with potential negative side-effects), then TRX2 Foam could be a safer alternative.

7 MSM Powder

MSM is a great hair beneficiary ingredient, and this sports powder can indeed help men and women with thinning hair. You'll find MSM in most hair health supplements, so if you fancy adding a bit more to your daily intake be sure to try it in powder format. This bag will cost you just £5.

8 Hair Laser Comb

I tried the hair laser comb a few years back, and although I didn't see particularly great results, I did notice better results over the autumn/winter seasons - I really couldn't tell you why! If you can get one of these on the cheap, then you should definitely give it a try, because, with an active lifestyle and balanced diet, hair laser combs have shown excellent results in men and women who suffer with hair loss.

Hairprin Natural Hair Support Pills: Does it Work?

Guest post by K. Ashton

I am a big fan of the structure of the hair loss information website, HGR (Hair Growth Report), but I am certainly not a fan of the content it produces, particularly regarding the 'product reviews'.

The structure of the Hair Growth Report website is not all that different to this website - with plenty of product reviews and articles regarding hair loss and hair health in general. So, I was often finding myself on the Hair Growth Report website checking out the latest treatment reviews and hair loss/hair growth related features.

Granted, the articles about hair loss are actually quite informative, particularly in the areas they talk about specific ingredients and routines that I myself have personally found to be helpful in my own battle against hair loss. But, what I am not so convinced about are the actual product reviews - if you can call them that.

I've been through every single product review on the Hair Growth Report website, most of which I had already heard of, and what I noticed is that all the reviews are pretty much the same. I don't even know if you can call them reviews, as much of the content is merely copy and paste. It constantly fails to actually let the readers know exactly how beneficial the product under review is for treating hair loss.

Does Hairprin stop hair loss?

It seems suspicious to me that the supplement, Hairprin, collected the prestigious 'Gold Award' with an unblemished 10/10 rating. After looking closely at the ingredients of Hairprin, I can honestly say there is nothing to suggest this product should be rated way and above every other product on their list. In fact, to my eyes, based on its ingredients, Hairprin wouldn't rank highly at all - and trust me, I've been through a fair few supplements in my time.

I'll make no bones about it - I use HR23+ and it has been, by far, the best working solution for my hair. My hair loss stopped after using HR23+, and if we are going on the ingredients factor alone, HR23+ contains pretty much all the ingredients that Hairprin contains, and much more! I find it quite baffling that Hairprin got a rating of 10/10, whereas HR23+ only got a 7/10. 

The HGR website is extremely favourable to Hairprin, which takes a lot of credit away from the whole website, in my opinion. I also think it's odd how the Hair Growth Report website rated TRX2 7/10 but labelled it as an 'affordable' product, whereas other supplements with the same rating, were branded as an 'expensive'.  Again, there is a lack of consistency throughout this website.

As for Hairprin itself, well, I won't be purchasing the supplement, because from looking at the ingredients alone, it really does look like an inferior version of many other supplements on the market. I certainly wouldn't label Hairprin as a bad hair supplement, because it does contain some good hair beneficiary ingredients, but what I will say is that there is no possible way it can be ranked as the best product of its kind in the world. That's just crazy!

Also, it's funny how the three main reviewers on HGR, Donald Martin, Francis Patton and Robert Bennett, are three males all with full heads of hair. How can three men who have no idea what it even feels like to suffer from hair loss be responsible for reviewing products that aim to tackle baldness? It makes no sense! Also, where are the female reviewers? Many of the products reviewed are unisex treatments, therefore why aren't we getting a female perspective? It seems to be these reviewers are made up, for the sole purpose of filling up the website, to promote Hairpin.

Hair loss is a big deal, and I mean a REALLY big deal. Guys like me just want the honest truth when it comes to reading reviews and information on the topic. That's why I started my blog, My Battle With Hair Loss. I wanted to share my years of research and testing with like minded people who want to get to the bottom of their balding and find ways to stop this hair loss nonsense. Although the views on this website are my own, I always strive to help others, as well as myself, in order to get us all to a better place.

That's why websites like Hair Growth Report really bug me. Yes, give us information about hair loss, and yes, review products and give them your ratings, but if you're going to do reviews, then at least make them fair and unbiased.

Hair Loss Talk: How Does HR23+ and TRX2 Compare?

How do the two best selling hair supplements compare?

With the all hype surrounding TRX2 since its launch in 2011, and the recent success of HR23+, it's little wonder so many people are quick to compare two of the leading hair loss treatment supplements on the market. But, the real question is: Do they work, and which on is better?

Here is an overview of the two leading hair growth supplements, and how they compare...


Formed in 2011, TRX2 is a hair treatment pill that has an overall success rate of 88% - making it one of the most efficient natural hair loss treatments available on the market. At Oxford, United Kingdom, a team of scientists has been conducting pre-clinical studies on hair loss. By combining powerful metabolic stimulants ( Potassium, BCAA, Nicotinic Acid) with a natural energy-generating substance ( Carnipure™ tartrate), the researchers discovered they could stop hair loss and promote hair growth on a molecular level. The result is TRX2™, a patent pending molecular hair loss treatment.
This natural hair loss treatment is specifically designed for patients suffering from the early stages of hair loss (Norwood 1 — 4). Benefits of taking 3 capsules of TRX2™ Molecular Hair Loss Treatment per day include:
  • The cessation of hair loss*
  • The promotion of hair growth — including the frontal/temple area*
  • Visibly stronger & thicker hair*


HR23+ is an oral hair growth tablet pill that is made from 23 key active ingredients that can help prevent hair loss and thinning hair. HR23+ is safe and free of any side-effects. This latest scientific breakthrough formula contains the popular anti-hair loss ingredient – Saw Palmetto.
Functional tests prove that Saw Palmetto can inhibit the formation of DHT; after taking this ingredient, many Seborrheic alopecia patients achieved excellent hair growth on the temple and scalp. HR23+ mixes Saw Palmetto with 22 other potent hair beneficiary ingredients for optimal results in men and women.

Benefits of taking 4 capsules of HR23+ per day include:
  • Prevention of hair loss*
  • Promotion of thicker, healthier, hair growth*
  • Stronger nail growth*


Price wise, the two are very similar. The current RRP of TRX2 (as of September 2018) is £55.99. HR23+ has a RRP of £49.95. However, you can purchase HR23+ for under £40 per bottle when you buy in multi packs.

Both products can be bought online, but TRX2 has more distributors as it's been trading since 2011, in comparison with the newer formed HR23+ which officially launched in 2015. Both supplements are sold worldwide, and are available from a number of online stores. HR23+ is also available to purchase offline from selected hair loss clinics throughout the UK.


Both products have apparent impressive success rates. TRX2 claims to have an 8 out of 10 success rate, whereas HR23+ is nearer to 9 out of 10 success rate. Both products have positive reviews and high return customer rates, making them two of the most sought-after hair loss treatment supplements on the market.

Which supplement is better? 

It is difficult to accurately define the effectiveness of a supplement, because with these types of products, results tend to vary from person to person. However, if we are to judge the supplements on their ingredients, then HR23+ would be the more favourable option. HR23+ contains a thicker base of hair beneficiary additives, and its formula is more conventionally considered.

That's not to say TRX2 is a bad supplement, as such, because it's not. However, the TRX2 formula is of a unique blend and consideration, which means it's unproven. As of September 2019, HR23+ is the faster growing supplement. However, it is unclear which product sells more units.

Our rating for TRX2 - 6/10
Our rating for HR23+  9/10
