Hair Essentials is a powerful, all-natural program designed to combat hair loss and stimulate healthy hair growth. Our program contact no chemical drugs, no artificial ingredients, and no ethically controversial ingredients.
Our program contains three easy-to-use products:
Hair Essentials daily supplement enables the body to powerfully and naturally restore healthy hair growth and overcome hair loss. It is an award-winning, 100% drug-free, vegetarian, certified gluten-free and non-GMO product.
Hair Essentials Nourishing Hair Oil is a deeply moisturizing and conditioning hair and scalp treatment that penetrates the scalp to rejuvenate, repair, and revitalize the hair and follicles.
Fo-Ti Root extract helps slow down hair loss, increase the rate of hair growth and restore hair to its original color.
What really distinguishes Hair Essentials daily supplement from other hair growth vitamins is its powerful, synergistic combination of multiple ingredients. Some hair vitamins and supplements inhibit DHT, a hormone that causes hair loss, while some help repair damaged hair follicles. Other supplements nourish the follicles for healthier new hair growth. Only Hair Essentials does ALL three!
Our scientifically researched, doctor-formulated combination of more than 20 proven herbs and nutrients naturally combats hair loss, repairs and revitalizes damaged or dormant hair follicles and stimulates healthy hair growth. Each carefully selected ingredient reinforces the effects of the others, making Hair Essentials the most comprehensive hair supplement on the market.
Coupled with Fo-Ti Root extract, which provides a powerful boost to healthy hair growth, and our pure Nourishing Hair Oil, there’s no other hair program like it for women or men!
Customers often notice decreased shedding or hair loss within the first few weeks. Most customers report dramatic improvement and faster hair growth by three months. Many customers report that their hair grows 75% to 100% faster, in as little as 90 days! We recommend you use the Hair Essentials program for at least 90 days to see best results. Natural supplements take time to build up in our system, and hair follicles also need time to cycle through their resting phase before re-entering the growth phase and growing new hair.
Once the hair follicles have been repaired and healthy new hair growth has been firmly established, it is possible for hair to continue to grow in stronger and thicker, even after stopping the Hair Essentials program. Key to this is maintaining the ongoing health of the scalp and hair follicles—for example, by avoiding the use of chemical-laden topical products, overprocessing, and overstyling—along with eating a balanced diet that provides an abundant supply of hair-healthy nutrients. The direct connection of our hair's health with what we put onto our scalp, as well as what we put into our body, is often overlooked. An all-natural program such as Hair Essentials provides chemical-free nutritional support for hair health, from the inside AND outside.
In some cases, continued use of the Hair Essentials daily supplement and Fo-Ti Root extract (at a lower dosage) may be needed to maintain new hair growth. The amount that may be needed varies from person-to-person, depending upon their unique circumstances, including underlying health, whether they are on any medications, etc. Our Nourishing Hair Oil is a great way to keep the hair strong and scalp healthy.
For Hair Essentials daily supplement, take 3 capsules daily with food to enhance digestion and absorption of ingredients. All 3 capsules may be taken at once with food or 1 capsule may be taken three times daily with food. Capsules are 100% plant-based and easy to swallow.
For Fo-Ti Root extract, take 30 to 60 drops, two to three times per day in juice or water.
A 90-day program is recommended to begin. Each bottle is approximately a 1-month supply when used as recommended. Results may vary from one individual to another.
If you have trouble swallowing capsules, Hair Essentials can be easily poured out of the capsule and mixed into juice, smoothies, water, yogurt, or honey for easier consumption. This will not affect the quality or effectiveness of Hair Essentials..
Not to worry! Missing an occasional day or two won't undo all of the positive results you've been building. If it is only one day that has been missed, you can just carry on, as per usual. If it has been 2 (or 3) days in a row, take 1 extra capsule of Hair Essentials per day for the next 3 (or 6) days, to make up for the missed dosages. This will help ensure that optimal levels of all of Hair Essentials' hair-healthy nutrients are maintained, especially during the first 90 days of use. It is not recommended to take all of the missed capsules at one time, however, because some of the nutrients will be 'wasted'—the body can only use a certain amount of a given nutrient at one time, such as the B vitamins (e.g., biotin) and certain minerals. Other nutrients, including zinc and iodine, should not be taken in excess.
Herbal medicine has been safely used for thousands of years and provides not only a healthier alternative, but often a more effective option than ingesting or applying chemicals, as may be found in other hair growth products.
We do not recommend that pregnant or nursing women use Hair Essentials or Fo-Ti Root. Saw Palmetto and Fo-Ti may have an effect upon hormone receptors and/or have hormone-like effects. Studies are not currently available that establish their unequivocal safety while pregnant or nursing.
If you are taking any medications, or have had or are at risk for a hormone-sensitive condition, we suggest you consult your doctor prior to using Hair Essentials or any other dietary supplement.
What if I don’t have hair loss and I just want fuller, thicker hair. How will the ingredients that reduce hair loss or repair damaged hair follicles affect my body?
One of the most versatile features of herbs is that they are 'food-like' in their complexity; as such, they provide more than just one action or benefit in the body. Unlike single-chemical pharmaceutical drugs, herbs are incredibly complex, containing thousands of different constituents. This is also a major reason why most people generally do not experience unwanted side effects with herbs and natural supplements: because our body recognizes and metabolizes their complex structure, as it does food.
So, while you may not need the herbs that specifically reduce hair loss or repair damaged hair follicles, they can still benefit your body in other ways.
For example, if you’re not genetically predisposed to increased DHT (the most common cause of hair loss), the herbs in Hair Essentials that target this aspect of hair thinning or hair loss, such as Saw Palmetto, will still provide you benefit. Saw Palmetto has many beneficial actions such as reducing urinary tract inflammation, reducing coughs and respiratory congestion, balancing metabolism, and aiding digestion amongst others.
This concept applies to all of the herbs and other ingredients in the Hair Essentials program.
Hair Essentials and Fo-Ti Root won’t cause unwanted hair growth on other parts of the body. Growth cycles for other body hair (eyebrows, pubic hair, facial hair, arm hair, etc.) are uniquely controlled by chemical feedback signals in the body, and have a much shorter cycle than scalp hair. Hair Essentials (including Fo-Ti Root) is formulated to reduce hair loss and promote healthy, faster hair growth on the scalp.
Hair Essentials combines the wisdom of herbal systems that have been refined over millennia, including traditional Chinese medicine, ayurveda, and western herbal medicine, along with up-to-date, scientific research of how herbs function in the body.
Yes! Many types of hair loss are reversible. Products that reduce the effects of DHT can stop hair loss. And, with proper nourishment, damaged and dormant hair follicles can be repaired and even reactivated, resulting in new hair growth.

Hair loss (alopecia) can happen for different reasons in women than in men, and result from a variety of factors including: hormonal imbalances; stress (emotional or physical); thyroid disorders; alopecia areata (an autoimmune condition); androgenic alopecia or ‘female pattern hair loss’ (also known as ‘hereditary hair loss,’); nutritional deficiencies (typically iron or certain B vitamins); immune system problems; allergic reactions; infections; surgery; and/or side effects of some medications.
Hair Essentials may help hair loss due to:
- Hormonal imbalances, including menopause/perimenopause
- Stress (emotional or physical)
- Thyroid disorders
- Alopecia areata
- Androgenic (androgenetic) alopecia, also known as female pattern hair loss or hereditary hair loss
- Nutritional deficiencies
- Immune system problems
- Allergic reactions
- Side effects of some medications
The Hair Essentials program helps regrow hair under all of these circumstances. That's not to say that it works for every single woman; it is, however, extremely effective in most cases.
Yes. Hair loss in men can also result from many factors, however, androgenic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness or hereditary hair loss, is the most common cause.
Hair Essentials can be very effective for reducing hair loss due to androgenic alopecia. It specifically targets DHT, which is created in excess in male pattern baldness. Blocking production of DHT can be very effective in reducing, and even reversing, this type of hair loss.
Other reasons for hair loss in men may include: hormonal imbalances; stress (emotional or physical); thyroid disorders; alopecia areata (an autoimmune condition); nutritional deficiencies; immune system problems; allergic reactions; infections; surgery; and/or side effects of some medications.
Hair Essentials may help regrow hair under all of these circumstances. That's not to say that it works for every single man; it is, however, it is effective in most cases.
A special note on Male Pattern Baldness: Hair Essentials can work wonders in the early stages of male pattern baldness. If, however, most of your follicles have not been growing hair for many years, it is unlikely you will have the short-term results often reported by our customers. It may require longer usage before you begin to see effects.
Even so, anyone with hair loss should try this product. The results may surprise you! Plus, Hair Essentials comes with a money-back guarantee, so if you’re not happy with the results, you can simply return it, no questions asked. The upside? New hair. The downside? There is none!

Ingredients and Manufacturing
I'm concerned about the amount of vitamin A in Hair Essentials. Is it safe? Doesn't too much vitamin A cause hair loss?
The amount of vitamin A in Hair Essentials is completely safe.
The established safe upper daily limit of "preformed vitamin A" (retinol) is 10,000 IU/day (see: Vitamin A Facts). A 3-capsule daily serving of Hair Essentials provides 5500 IU of vitamin A. The vitamin A in Hair Essentials is, however, not "preformed vitamin A"; it is natural beta-carotene, also known as "provitamin A."
Approximately 9-22% of beta-carotene that is ingested, gets absorbed from the small intestine. Beta-carotene is also utilized by the body preferentially as an antioxidant, first, before any remaining is converted to vitamin A. The amount of vitamin A made from the natural-source beta-carotene in Hair Essentials will, therefore, be well within the established upper safe daily limit of 10,000 IU.
High daily dosages of synthetic retinoid compounds or preformed vitamin A (retinol), which is found in animal sources (e.g., liver) or fortified foods, may cause hair loss.
Hair Essentials, Fo-Ti Root, and our Nourishing Hair Oil are manufactured in the U.S.A. at our NSF cGMP-certified manufacturing facilities.

Hair Essentials can also help to minimize the hair loss that occurs after minoxidil (Rogaine) is discontinued.
