Hair Growth Supplements - Price Comparison


What is the best Hair Growth Supplement?

During your search in finding a treatment for hair loss, getting the best value for your money is essential, but finding something that works is by far the most important thing. With hundreds of hair growth supplements available on the market, it can be difficult to know which supplements are more effective than others. So, looking at the most well-known brands on the market, we bring you the ultimate price and performance comparison guide, to help you find the right hair supplement...


Lowest Price Hair Supplements

Single ingredient supplements do have their pros and cons. The advantage of single extract supplements like saw palmetto or nettle leaf is that they are cheap, and they are beneficial for hair health. The problem is, baldness cannot be prevented by just one single ingredient or extract, therefore you would need to buy quite a few of these supplements in order to get the best possible results - and that's where the price begins to build up.


Medium Priced Hair Supplements

Medium range hair pills are usually made up of a handful of hair growth ingredients, but not in all cases. Some mid-range products like HairXcel contain over 20 hair ingredients, offering users great value for money. But single gender products like Procerin (for men) only contain a few ingredients, but focusing more on a higher dosage of one specific ingredient. These types of products have proved to be very hit and miss, but they can help some individuals with hair loss.


Highest Priced Hair Supplements  

The expensive hair supplements may have the best reviews and exposure, but you'll need to be extremely careful before parting with you cash here. Expensive multi-vitamin hair supplements tend to contain more ingredients (but not in all cases), offering users a more potent blend to its cheaper counterparts, but that does not necessarily mean they will work. HR23+ and Nutrafol contain a lot of ingredients and both have good customer reviews, making them an appealing option. On the opposite end of the scale, TRX2 comes with a mixed bag of reviews, and only contains a handful of ingredients. Again, it really is a case of finding what treatment works best for you individually.

TRX2 Lotion vs HR23+ Serum


The Battle of the Hair Growth Topical Solutions


TRX2 and HR23+ are two of the most popular brands in the hair loss treatment industry, with an array of products between them. Launched in 2011, TRX2 bases its formula on the science of potassium channels, whereas HR23+, brought to market in 2014, bases its formula on the combination of DHT blockers and hair growth agents.

Both brands are designed to prevent hair loss and encourage healthy hair growth in men and women. Here, we rate the topical solutions of each brand and see how they compare to one another.


Potency and Safety


Both brands use a blend of ingredients that stay consistent to their respective supplement forms. TRX2 continues the potassium theory, whereas HR23+ uses its tried and trusted use of Saw Palmetto, blended in with the potent KGF formula.

Both products are safe to use, however, we would give TRX2 the slight edge on safety, as HR23+ does contain Saw Palmetto, which should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding.


Performance


Both products are still relatively new to the market (TRX2 lotion was released in 2016, and HR23+ serum was released in 2015), so it is hard to get an accurate performance rate for each product.

However, both topical serums are big sellers, and both totally unique to the market.  It will only be a matter of time before we get a broad range of customer reviews and user testimonials.


Price


Both topical solutions fall into the higher price bracket, from £30-£50 per bottle, depending on how many bottles you buy (multi-pack deals work out cheaper). However, the unproven TRX2 lotion is more expensive than the popular serum by HR23+, by nearly £10 per bottle.


Ingredients


More testing and feedback is needed for accurate results on the topical lotion for TRX2, although HR23+ also needs more testing and feedback, therefore this is inconclusive.  We would give HR23+ the edge on this one though, due to it containing ingredients that have been proven to work.


Reviews


From gathering feedback from online hair loss communities and forums, as well as the testimonials from each website, TRX2 lotion has a positive feedback score of around 61%, whereas HR23+ serum has a positive score of around 72%.


Results...


HR23+ serum wins this battle by a comfortable margin of 5-1, due to its feedback, ingredients and performance.  However, the comparison was much closer than the final score suggests, and it should be noted that results do vary with each individual, so both topical solutions are good options to try for sufferers of early stages of baldness and thinning hair.

Both brands are at the higher end of the price-range, but you could argue it is great value for your money if they prove to be successful. The most important aspect of these brands is that they are both safe and free from major side-effects.

Procerin XT Foam vs TRX2 Hair Foam


Hair Growth Foams for Treating Hair Loss

Hair growth foams are popular forms of treatments for baldness, and the most common form of hair foam is Minoxidil's Regaine (Rogaine).  There are a few factors that make foams such a popular choice for men and women battling baldness, the main reasons being that it is easy to apply, it dries quickly and it doesn't leave your hair looking greasy. 

Based on six key attributes, here, we compare two of the leading non-Minoxidil hair treatment foams on the market, Procerin XT Treatment Foam and TRX2 Hair Revitalizing Foam. 


Safety and Ingredients

Both products are considered safe to use, with no major risk of side-effects.  Procerin has been on the market for nearly a decade, and user complaints have been minimal.  TRX2's foam version has only been on the market for a few months. You may experience slight itchiness from initial use of both products, but this should lcear away as you get used to it. 

Both foams contain a long list of hair beneficiaries, with Procerin perhaps containing the slightly more potent formula, making TRX2 the slightly safer of the two foams.


Longevity and Performance

Procerin XT Foam is considered to be one of the leading hair loss treatment foams on the market, with its ability to help users sustain a good rate of hair growth over a long period of time.  TRX2 Revitalizing Foam, still new to the market, has shown good potential, but more time is needed in order to identify its true effectiveness.


Price

Procerin XT Foam is priced at around £30 per single bottle, whereas TRX2 Revitalizing Foam is priced between £40-£45, depending where you purchase it. 


Customer Reviews

Based on their website testimonials and online hair loss forums and discussion boards, Procerin is by far the better reviewed product. The average customer satisfaction rate for Procerin XT Foam is 80%.  However, TRX2 Foam is very new to the market, therefore we expect more feedback from users over the coming months. 


The Results... 

Procerin edges this battle by 4 points to 2, based on its longevity, effectiveness, value for money, and its user feedback and reviews. However, we do acknowledge that TRX2 Foam has not been on the market for a long period of time, therefore these results far from reflect the effectiveness of both brands. 
 

 

 

PHYTO vs HR23+


Phytophanere and HR23+ Supplements for Beating Hair Loss

Phytophanere and HR23+ are two of the best selling hair growth supplements on the market.  Phytophanere (Phyto) is mainly marketed for female users, and HR23+ is a unisex hair supplement.

Both products are safe, yet potent formulas that aim to prevent hair fall and encourage healthier, fuller, hair growth.  Here, we compare these two winning products on six key attributes... 


Safety & Potency

Both supplements do not contain any major side-effects. At worst, users may experience slight stomach discomfort, but this can be prevented when taking the pills with food. 

HR23+ does contain the potent North American plant extract, Saw Palmetto, which can lead to some minor side-effects, therefore technically, we would rate Phyto as the slightlier safer product of the two. 


Effectiveness & Ingredients

Supplements like these work differently with each individual, therefore it is impossible to define which of the two is more effective. However, based on the ingredients and the science behind each formula, it is evident that HR23+ would most likely offer better results.

HR23+ has a key blend of DHT blocking properties and hair growth agents that work in conjunction with each other to help users prevent hair fall and promote hair growth.  Phyto tends to base its formula on hair growth agents, with not as much emphasis on hair loss prevention. 


Affordability

Phyto is positioned at the mid-price-range of the hair supplement market, at around £30 per single bottle. HR23+ is positioned near the high-end price-range, at around £49 per single bottle.


Customer Reviews

Based on customer reviews on the product websites and online hair loss forums, it seems Phyto has around 75% customer satisfaction rate compared to HR23+ which has a customer satisfaction rate of around 85%. 


The Results... 

Both supplements can achieve excellent results in helping men and women maintain thicker hair growth, however, HR23+ is more effective in preventing hair fall.  Phyto should be used by women who no not necessarily suffer from thinning hair, but perhaps just need a formula that will boost hair growth at a much quicker rate. 

HR23+ is designed top revent hair loss and promote healthy hair growth in men and women who suffer from early stages of baldness and thinning hair.




 

TRX2 vs HR23+

 
The Battle of the Hair Loss Supplements

TRX2 and HR23+ are two of the most popular brands in the hair loss treatment industry, with an array of products between themLaunched in 2011, TRX2 bases its formula on the science of potassium channels, whereas HR23+, brought to market in 2014, bases its formula on the combination of DHT blockers and hair growth agents.

Both brands are designed to prevent hair loss and encourage healthy hair growth in men and women.  Here, we rate the supplement and topical solution as a combination treatment


Product(s) Safety

Both brands are safe to use and free from major side-effects.There have been no reported issues of any major side-effects from using any of these products.  However, HR23+ does contain the potent extract, saw palmetto, which is not suitable for women who are pregnant and breastfeeding, and so due to this factor alone, TRX2 would technically be the safer of the two brands


Longevity

Both products are designed to combat hair loss over a long period of time.  Both brands also claim that patients should expect to see clear results by the end of month three, but results do vary with each individual


Performance

Online forums suggest TRX2 supplement has a low performance rate, but this is not an accurate portrayal of its overall effectivenessAccording to the 2016 Customer Review, HR23+ supplement has a 90% success rate, ranking it as one of the leading hair supplements on the market.

TRX2 lotion was only launched in 2016, therefore more time is needed to judge its performance accurately. HR23+ serum was launched in 2015, but more reviews from users, and official testing is needed to give the product a fair rating. 


Price

Both supplements fall into the same price range, from £40-£50 per bottle, depending on how many bottles you buy (multi-pack deals work out cheaper).  However, the unproven TRX2 lotion is more expensive than the popular serum by HR23+, by nearly £10 per bottle.


Ingredients

More testing and feedback is needed for accurate results on the topical solutions for both brands, therefore this is inconclusive.

TRX2 supplement contains five active ingredients, mainly potassium, whereas HR23+ supplement has a broader range of 23 key hair beneficiary ingredients including a host of DHT blockers and hair growth agents.


Reviews


It is always difficult to judge the validity of online reviews, but HR23+ seems to have a more positive range of testimonials than TRX2.  Hr23+ has gained excellent reviews particularly from women suffering from thinning hair.  HR23+ also has a much more positive rate of reviews across many hair loss forums, discussion boards, and established beauty bloggers.


Results...


HR23+ wins this battle by a relatively comfortable margin due to its feedback, ingredients and performance.  Both supplements are good options to try for sufferers of early stages of baldness and thinning hair. 

Both brands are at the higher end of the price-range, but you could argue it is great value for your money if they prove to be successful. The most important aspect of these brands is that they are both safe and free from major side-effects

Biotin vs Saw Palmetto




Biotin & Saw Palmetto for Beating Hair Loss


Biotin and Saw Palmetto are the two most popular and effective additives for hair health. It is thought that biotin (B7) helps increase the rate and thickness of hair growth. Saw palmetto (SP) is thought to block the formation of DHT (the main cause of pattern baldness). However, more scientific evidence is need to prove these theories. 

It should be noted that biotin is beneficial for hair growth, while saw palmetto helps prevent hair loss. The recommended daily intake for B7 is 500mcg. The recommended daily intake of SP is 250mg.


Product Safety & Potency

Both the vitamin B7 and the extract SP are regarded as safe to take. There have been no reported major side-effects from the use of either supplement. There have been rare cases of people suffering from minor headaches from using B7, but nothing further.  Potential side-effects from using SP include slight stomach discomfort and headaches.  It should also be noted that women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not take saw palmetto.


Although both are generally safe to take - Biotin is the slightly safer of the two.  


Science, Performance & Feedback

It is claimed that biotin acts as a hair growth agent, but no scientific  study has fully backed this claim. Saw Palmetto, originally a treatment for men's prostate cancer, showed to be an effective DHT blocker, after several patients noticed considerable results during their treatment period. 


Neither of these are FDA approved, and more in-depth scientific studies are needed in order to confirm their exact effectiveness for combating hair loss. 


B7 is used in the majority of multi-vitamin hair growth supplements. SP is used in many anti-hair loss supplements due to its potent DHT blocking properties.  Although not conclusive, feedback has generally been good for both ingredients.


Affordability

Both B7 and SP are very affordable.Expect to pay around £10 for three months supply of biotin, and around £25 for the same supply worth of saw palmetto.



Results...

These two are not the easiest to compare and rate against each other, due to the fact they treat different aspects of hair health. If you are looking to battle hair loss safely and effectively, you should seriously consider using these two ingredients in conjunction with each other - either taking them separately, or both combined in a good multi-vitamin hair supplement.
