I decided to post my experiences with various hair vitamins. I’ve taken biotin (review here ), MSM, Fast, Hairfinity, and a lot of store brand hair, skin, & nail vitamins. I’ve also considered Viviscal and Nioxin but I haven’t gotten around to trying them.
This is the label from the previous packaging. Changes may have been made since.
According to the website, Hairfinity Hair Vitamins provide the basic nutrients for healthy hair. The supplements balances B-complex, biotin, vitamin C, vitamin D, silica, and sulphur (as MSM) to help create an optimal growing environment for healthy hair.
I’ve taken Hairfinity vitamins in 2010, 2011, and 2012…but not consistently. I’ve always ordered 2 bottles at a time (as in a 2 month supply @ 2 pills a day) and I have probably purchased these 4 times total over 2.5 years. I took pictures in 2010. when I first started them because I wanted proof. In 2010, I took the recommended 2 pills a day over 2 months. In 2011 and 2012, I switched to 1 pill a day so each bottle lasted 2 months.
All that’s a bit confusing but just comment below and I’ll clarify. Here’s my opinion of the supplement… I like them. I’ve purchased several times but I’m not very good at being consistent with anything. If I purchased more than 2 bottles at a time, I would do a whole lot better and taking them without long breaks. I saw good results with taking 1 pill a day. I also take a multivitamin and fish oil daily and calcium if I feel I need it. I noticed a difference in my hair and nails. I had no issues with my skin breaking out. When I kept track of my growth in 2010, I averaged 2/3″ per month. My normal growth rate without any vitamins or topical treatments is around 3/8″. I only kept track of growth my first time using them and the only pics I have are (unfortunately) low
quality. I’ve posted them anyway because I think pictures say a whole lot more than words.
I don’t have a problem swallowing pills so I can’t really speak on that. I do really like that a serving is only 2 pills. There are many other hair vitamins that expect 3 or more a day and I think that’s far too many for me to bother with. I’ve also had experience with other supplements that smell really, really bad (I’ll post about those later). I didn’t experience either of those issues with the Hairfinity vitamin. One other plus is that this is a black owned business. How awesome is that. They also publish a newsletter with helpful articles on hair care and coupon codes.

I started taking Hairfinity again around September 2013. I started out on 1 pill a day. After my first bottle was completed, I then went to the recommended dosage of 2 per day. My average growth rate without vitamins is still around 1/3 inch per month. I bought a length check shirt at the end of 2013 and here are the monthly pictures thus far. Please note that the lines on my shirt are about 1.2 inches apart.
Here’s a side by side-
I don’t measure my hair with a tape measure so I’m monitoring my progress from these pictures as well. From what I can tell, I had about 1 inch of growth in December and about 1/2 an inch in January. I was working out more consistently in December- boot camp 2-4 times a week and running 6-8 miles per week. My diet was cleaner in December as well. I’ve averaged 2/3 inches since I started doing length checks.
