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.

2014 Update:

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-

February 5, 2014

 

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.

You can also read my reviews for Priteva Hair Vitamins and The Mane Choice Manetabolism Hair Vitamins.

Update 2015:

I no longer take a hair vitamin. I haven’t for some time. I do try to incorporate a regular daily mulit-vitamin because if I don’t my skin peels around my fingernails and other signs of vitamin/mineral deficiency. I’m happy with the length of my hair at the moment so I’m not concerned with growth. My experiences with Brock Beauty and Hairfinity have not been positive lately. When I placed my last order, I used a discount code which should have cancelled out the cost of shipping. However, I was not able to select USPS as the shipper. I think UPS was the only option and was more expensive than sending it in the regular USPS mail. I sucked it up and placed my order anyway. To my surprise, my order was placed in my mailbox and indeed delivered by the postman- not via the more expensive UPS option that I was forced to select. As a customer, I was left unhappy. That was the last order I placed with them sometime last year.

As a business woman, I take a lot of time to maintain my blog. I update content regularly and make sure I interact with my readers. I have a modest following, but it’s important to me to maintain this space. I work full time so the blog cannot be a priority for me. I run this blog as a side business and as stated plainly above, I post affiliate links for Hairfinity. I belong to several affiliate networks and while the Brock Beauty website wasn’t the best interface, it used to show sale data and commission earned. This space on my blog has become a highly ranked discussion post on the effectiveness of this and other hair vitamins. Everyone is open to ask questions and share their personal experiences. Because of this, my links send a lot of traffic to the Brock Beauty webpage where readers can decide if they want to purchase a product. In exchange for the marketing- I should earn a percentage of the sale amount. For many months now- I would say about 9 months- I have consistently sent readers that resulted in sales and I have earned no paid commission. I have messaged Brock Beauty on more than one occasion to enquire about the missing commission. I’ve debated taking this post down entirely. Instead, I’ve decided to remove all links to the site and list via Amazon instead. Amazon also offers free 2 day shipping if you are a member of Prime. Unfortunately, while the Hairfinity product did work for me, I’ve been left unsatisfied as a customer and an affiliate.

      I’m taking hairfinity it makes me regular has anybody experience that? It’s like a laxative

      • Jay says:

        Personally, I haven’t…but I eat clean and drink at least 2 liters of water a day so I never had a problem. Perhaps others will chime in.

      • La'Tonya says:

        Im with Jay on this one. I drink plenty of water on a daily basis and I have a regular movement. Its good that you are going regularly now.

        • Samone says:

          I agree with you both! I eat clean drink ALOT of water and work out 4 days a week! I haven’t had any major breakout with my face. So my advice is to drink A LOT OF WATER! Which you should be doing anyway with or without using this product.

        Yes it does!

      i get really bad headaches with hairfinty would owns able to put them in my shampoo?

      • Jay says:

        You could try that…not sure how effective that will be because different compounds gave different solubility properties. But you shoild definitely stop taking them if it’s causing headaches.

        I thought it was just me. I split it between breakfast and dinner but still get them.

    I took biotin 1000mcg and I have headache and break out on my neck and face. I used to take msm, and doesn’t feel right at all. I put it in my spray bottle and feel that my hair is dry. Have you try it on your spray bottle? I heard people put it in oil, like gro aut oil. what do you know about that?

    • Jay says:

      I have used biotin and msm topically. I don’t rely on things like that and I’m not consistent with any topical treatments. If you don’t like the reaction, definitely stop using it. I wouldn’t add anything to a commercial product like Gro Aut Oil. If you use a brand of oil, I think it should be used as is. When in doubt, speak to a medical professional before using any supplement internally or topically. I hope that helps.

    • Gale says:

      I would recommend doing your own research as far as adding supplements to your oils. Vitamins are usually best consumed orally so they can go right into your bloodstream, and you must know for sure whether whatever chemical/vitamin you’re adding can cross the cuticle barrier of your hair to penetrate the inside of your strands. The cuticle barrier is only semi-permeable, meaning that it only lets some things in, namely molecules that are small enough to do so. If a molecule is too large, it just sits on the outside of your hair shaft and does nothing to nourish the inside, which sounds like what you might be experiencing with the dryness after applying it.

    So you only took 1 pill a day, and still seen growth

    • Jay says:

      I take a multi vitamin, calcium supplement, and fish oil as well, so I usually take only 1 Hairfinity pill. That way I get at or around 100% of the necessary vitamins and minerals without going too far over. And, yes, I’ve seen results from those supplements.

  6. Kim says:

    Can I get these vitamin from a store

  7. Jay says:

    Hiya Kim, I’ve taken Haitfinity vitamins on and off over the past 3 years. I started taking them again around September 2013. I’ve finished 1 bottle and I’m on the 2nd bottle. I will take pics and do a full update when the 2nd bottle is finished. I haven’t kept track of my hair growth because my hair was tucked away. I do think these vitamins improve my hair growth rate. I know my nails and skin are doing well so far.

    • Kim says:

      Thanks for the information I’m really to get my hair healthy I’ve tried hair nails and skin , biotin, prenatal pill, just bought carols daughters new line of product called moni intense repair line on yesterday I order the hair infinity on last night I have to wait 5-7 days seem like forever, my hair is thin and short and about 2 month ago I wanted a different look so I got a glue in weave which was beautiful got a lot of compliments but when I took it out after 2 week slowly my hair started shedding ,I’ve done professional deep conditioning ,leave in , trim the ends i do have left. Now I make my own wigs and trying and praying for my hair to come back to me I promised I will take better care of it . PS I hope this product and those pills work

      • Jay says:

        Aww, just be patient and your hair will grow back and be fabulous! A wig is good idea. I wear my hair in medium sized braids under the wig and cover them with a plastic bag, then a wig cap, or just a dark silk scarf in the winter. Wigs are great for protecting the hair. A healthy diet and lots of water go a long way in growing healthy hair. I find that vitamins are just something extra and personally help speed up my growth. Good luck to you and have a happy hair journey! 😀

      Hello, never had facial hair growth do to the vitamins I’ve tried, biotin , hair nail and skin,now hair infinity i think we all have fine little hairs above the lip but righ about now if this vitamin grows my hair I would wax a mustache or beard off and keep it moving.

  11. Denise Everett says:

    I just starting taking the hairfinity and was wondering should I take both pills at the same time or one in the morning and one at night. Thanks for the input

    • Jay says:

      I think the general recommendation for vitamins is that you space them out and take them after a meal. I take both pills in the evening, however, and I do not notice any issues with absorption.

  12. Antionette Twillie says:

    Hi….. Does the pills still work if I have a sew-in or braids in my head, or do I need to keep my hair free of those things in order for hairfinity to do its job?

    • Jay says:

      Hi! What Hairfinity or any vitamin does is provide your body with the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that it may be lacking. It supplements a healthy diet and creates an internal environment that helps grow healthy hair, skin, and nails (all 3 are made of similar things and receive nutrients from our diet after all other organs). That said, vitamins work internally. External factors, like wearing a sew in will not effect how your body uses nutrients from your diet and supplements.

      However if you want long hair, you have to grow it AND keep what you grow (aka retain). To retain hair you have to take care of it and prevent breakage, split ends, knots, etc… You can wear a sew in but your real hair needs to be kept moisturized and not subjected to stress (too tight braids or thread) that will cause breakage.

      Let me know if you have any other questions!

        • Jay says:

          I haven’t seen any consequences. My hair, nails, and skin go back to how they were before because the added vitamins and minerals are not there.

  13. Anonymous says:

    Hey i am kinda nervous about taking hairfinty pills because i am a home remedy type of person but i was wondering have you ever heard of someone adding the. Codine into their hair products because i hate taking pills

    • Jay says:

      Hiya, I think autocorrect might have gotten you there but I assume you’re asking if people put the vitamins in products? I personally don’t think that is a good idea. I believe you should use them as intended or not use them at all. Some things are water soluble and others are fat soluble so a multivitamin is not necessarily going to dissolve in one substance. And I really don’t like the idea of mixing things with chemicals- like conditioners or leave ins- with other chemicals because something in it could cause a chemical reaction and produce something unsafe. There are people who put a single letter vitamin in oil or water (depending on solubility) but I wouldn’t go beyond that.

      I hope that answers your question. If you’re uncomfortable taking a vitamin, how about adding a green smoothie (mostly veg, maybe 1 fruit) to your daily intake.

  14. rina says:

    My hair has been slowly falling out for a year. I’ve been wearing half-wigs to cover it. I use to wear box braids but thought it may take my hair out more with the stress of the braid. I’m scared to wear my natural hair in public. If I take the vitamin should I go back to braids or stay with wigs?

    • Kim says:

      Hey I’m no doctor but you need to get your thyroid checked and stay with the wigs so you will be able to shampoo and deep condition your hair and use a leave in also let your hair breath at night and use natural oils for scalp I’m using the hair infinity vitamin but I just started using them so I can’t say a lot about the pill just yet because I just found out I have thyroid issue , but you definitely need to take a vitamins for your hair , I hope this help I will post a picture before an after once I get to the after

    • Jay says:

      I agree with Kim. You should definitely see a general doc or dermatologist to find out the reason why your hair is falling out. If it’s found that there is some sort of alopecia and the follicles are dead, vitamins will have no effect on hair growth. If it’s not a scalp issue, it could be a sign of something going on internally.

      As for how you wear your hair, a wig would put less stress on your hair so it is the better option. However, the sooner you find out the root of the issue, the sooner you can get back to healthy hair rather than covering it up. I hope everything improves!

    Hi,i’ve been using HF for almost 6 months, when I started I wasn’t using or taking any other vitamins or supplements. I started to see result but my face was breaking out terribly after 2 or three months.So I decided to add one a day vitamins, I came across the one for healty skin support. my skin is still a mess,now my hair started to fall out( one of the signs of too much vitamin A).I actually have a 4×2 bald patch in my hair. i have no idea what could have cause it.I don’t wear braids and I never have, I do put my hair in a pinup often. i really don’t know what could’ve done it, i went to the Dr, it appears I have alopecia areata. Naturally I started to research the cause and anything related to it. I came across vitamins deficiency and or overdose. This caused me to sit down and analyze how much vitamins and the intake of each I was consuming. To my surprise and shock, hairfinity alone in most cases have way more than the recommended dosage.This has lead me to believe that i may possibly have consumed too much of most vitamins but especially Vitamin A. the suggested daily maximum dose is 3000IU hairfinity has 8150IU and one a day has 2500IU. That’s 10,650IU.I am going to consult a dietician next week, but these are the things we initially don’t pay attention to. Although i can say for sure that’s the cause,I am glad that found out now rather than later. i may consider 1 hf tablet instead of 2. However until I know more about my situation, i’m taking a break from them.

    • Jay says:

      Seeing a Dr. and stopping the vitamins for now is definitely a good idea. Most supplements come in mega doses, meaning they contain way more than the recommending daily amount. Each person reacts differently depending on what our bodies need. While I personally haven’t experiences any negative effects, it’s best to listen to our bodies and cease anything that can cause more harm than good. I hope you figure out what is causing the hair loss so you can get back on track. Good luck on your hair journey and thanks for sharing your review. I know it will help someone. 🙂

      • Jay says:

        Sorry to hear about that and thanks for sharing your experience. Drinking a lot of water helps (at least 1 ounce per half your body weight in pounds; for example a 150 lbs person should drink 150/2=75 ounces of water a day). Even still, every body will react different. Fortunately, that has not been my experience.

  17. me says:

    Ok. I hate to do this, but I came across a Hairfinity photo earlier and a woman claimed to have grown her hair in weeks. People in the comments were hesitant, so I wrote that I don’t take random pills. If the product is so potent that it rapidly grows your hair, surely you will have hair growing everywhere ie. mustache, beard, etc. I then asked if it was approved by the FDA or had clinical trials or lab tests done. When I went back to view responses they had taken the photo down. This troubled me because they have over a million likes and “our” women are flocking to it because of bogus photos they are putting up on their fb page. What if it kills you?! Read the DISCLAIMER (on their page)!!! THEY SAID THEY DO NOT OWN THE PHOTOS ON THEIR PAGE AND THEY DO NOT CLAIM THAT THE PICTURES ARE PICTURES OF REAL CLIENTS. Please before you try random pills that are supposed to be a “magic bean” look into it before it before it makes you wish you did. I wonder why they took the photo down??? If its too good to be true it probably is… I hate that these young women are wasting their money & possibly their health.

    • Jay says:

      I don’t believe everything (or most things) I see or hear so I take everything with a grain of salt. I tried Hairfinity for myself and it does indeed work for me so I’m happy with it and will continue to use it. I haven’t perused any Hairfinity photos but I do take pictures of my own hair and post to my blog to share with my readers. I try to let my pictures speak for themselves. I also talk about the effect on my body as a whole- skin, nails, body hair. Hopefully my readers are fully aware of my results and are making a decision with their best judgment.

      Vitamins and supplements are not ever regulated by the FDA, but there are independent “verifiers” popping up. At the moment, the market is largely unregulated across the board. I do trust Hairfinity, as it is an established company that I have been familiar with them (as in used their products) for at least 4 years.

      I do agree that perhaps “we” as a whole are too quick to jump on hair growth bandwagons. However, for me, this is one that has paid off. I know that it’s near impossible for me to consume the recommended amount of vitamins and minerals in my daily diet (this was especially true when I was vegetarian). I do take daily supplements such as fish oil, women’s multi and super greens. I personally do believe in what they can do for my body but I totally understand that it’s not for everybody.

      All of my current progress pictures and posts are under my Hairfinity tag here- http://minibraidmethod.com/category/hairfinity-2/
      I can’t speak for the integrity of other progress pics on the web, but my pictures are posted within a day of being taken and they are unaltered.

      So m guessing no response on if fda approved or clinical trials

      • Jay says:

        The FDA does not regulate any vitamins or supplements. I don’t know if the company has conducted clinical trials. Check their website to see if there’s any info on that.

        EDIT:
        Since I’ve written about this on several posts, here’s a link explaining what the FDA’s role in the sale of vitamins and mineral aka “dietary supplements.” http://www.fda.gov/Food/DietarySupplements/QADietarySupplements/default.htm#FDA_role
        There’s lots of information there. Basically, they monitor the marketing of such products. “Manufacturers and distributors do not need FDA approval to sell their dietary supplements. This means that FDA does not keep a list of manufacturers, distributors or the dietary supplement products they sell. If you want more detailed information than the label tells you about a specific product, you may contact the manufacturer of that brand directly.”

    So you do agree that the pills will provide good results if you take only (1) capsule a day and a multivitamin?

    • Jay says:

      Yes, I did see results. I prefer to make small changes so with any vitamin, I start out with a small dosage then work my way up to the recommended dosage. I also look at what I’m taking cumulatively in all my vitamins combined because I want to make sure I’m not going too far over 100% of the recommended daily value. Often times, a multivitamin with have ingredients that overlap with a hair, skin, nail vitamin. You don’t miss out on many vitamins or nutrients if you chose to only take one of two, for example. Hairfinity, like other hair, skin, nail vitamins, does have a proprietary blend of herbs that a multivitamin does not, so that’s all you’ll be missing out on. I say take however many you are comfortable with, without going over. If you aren’t seeing the results you want at 1 pill a day, just increase to 2 per day.

      I hope that’s clear and that it answers your question. 🙂

  19. Noel says:

    I want to try hairfinity but I have a question is it ok if I take just the two pills per day like recommended or do I need to take a multivitamin with the pill to balance it out? I read that somebody who was taking the pill they took a multivitamin too.

    • Jay says:

      The instructions are: “Adults, take two (2) capsules daily as a dietary supplement.” I assume anyone who takes a multivitamin is doing so for overall health as that what they are for. Hairfinity’s claims of making hair ‘healthy from the inside out” are based on taking just 2 Hairfinity pills per day.

  20. La'Tonya says:

    I started out with a mowhawk and went natural about a year ago. My hair has always grown at least to my shoulders and wouldnt grown anymore. So I ordered two bottles of hairfinity in november and keot a sew in since I went natural a little over a year ago. Every three months I went back to my stylist and got hot oil treatments and a good wash and new sew in. My hair still only grew just a little. Every since I have started taking hairfinity since november my hair is down my back. It has grown so much my fiance who I have been with for 9 years was even in dis belief. I’ve always kept a short style so he has never seen my hair this long. I say all of this to say hairfinity is the first pills I’ve taken that has truly strengthened my hair and made it grow quickly. I wish I couldve kept updated pics like most of the ladies did.

          What multivitamins do u take and what fish oil brand do u take plz reply back to me at [email removed] pleasr thank you

          • Jay says:

            I emailed you, but I’ll answer publicly as well in case it can help someone else. I don’t take a multivitamin or fish oil currently. I took a multivitamin with the Hairfinity when I was taking just 1 Hairfinity a day. I was taking the generic store brand of One a Day Metabolism here’s a cheaper version called One Daily Metabolism. For fish oil, I bought whatever was on sale, usually from Vitamin Shoppe. Here are some results from iherb- http://www.iherb.com/search?kw=fish+oil&x=0&y=0#cid=1546&p=1&rcode=eki823. I was vegetarian then vegan for over a year so I stopped taking fish oil. I just haven’t taken them lately because I haven’t gotten back into the routine since eating meat and animal products.

            I don’t take a multivitamin now because I try to get my nutrients from food mostly. I supplement with a green powdered drink. I mix a packet of Genesis Today GenEssentials with some cranberry juice or lemon water on days that I don’t eat very healthily.

  21. Gigi says:

    Does hairfinity works good with grow edges bck??

    • Jay says:

      It depends on how bad the damage is. If the hair follicles are damaged vitamins will not help the hair grow back. The only way to know for certain if the follicles are damaged it to see a specialized doctor. If the damage/hair loss is temporary then vitamins can give your body what it needs to grow new hair there.

    Just googled and found this blog today is Day One of me taking the Hairfinity pills so I will let everyone knows how it goes. I am currently eating no meats, and drinking strictly water.

    I been taking them since March 1 and everytime I take them I get a headache should I stop taking them

    • Jay says:

      If you are drinking enough water (half your weight in ounces), eating a balanced diet, and taking them with food and experience headaches or other side effects, I think it’s best to stop. You could also try taking one per day. I know MSM causes headaches and nightmares/vivid dreams for some people. I’m not sure if some of the other ingredients are associated with headaches as well. If it were me, I would cut down on how many and/or how often I take them or just stop altogether.

    Does hairinfinity really make you lose weight .. Someone told me that’s why she stop taking them

    • Jay says:

      I’ve never heard of that. The only thing that leads to weight loss is eating less calories and exercising more. These are basically a multivitamin plus some herbs that benefit the hair, skin, and nails. Perhaps that person was drinking more water instead of juice or soda and therefore lost some weight. I highly doubt the vitamins had anything to do with it.

    I have been taking hairfinity for abour 2 weeks now. I have decided to transition to natural hair from relaxed hair. Do you think HF will keep my hair strong so I will not have to cut off all of the relaxed hair at one time? I havent had any issues with breakage and my new growth is at about 2 inches right now.

    • Jay says:

      Vitamins won’t make any difference to the hair that’s already on your head…so no. I only transitioned for 5 months but I think the key to a long transition is deep conditioning, regular protein treatments and no heat hairstyles that blend the hair- roller sets, braid outs, twist outs, etc…

    Hi, I’m planning on starting to go natural so I can lock my hair. I currently have a short cut circa Fantasia 2008. I was wondering if you thought hairfinity would be a good way to help me start my journey as I don’t want to have very short locks…

    • Jay says:

      Sorry for the late reply, Hairfinity is a great option to start your journey. I’ve found however that growing out a very short hair cut will take no time at all. With only a couple inches your hair can literally double in length so you will see noticeable change much faster than someone with long hair.

  30. Brianti says:

    I haven’t heard anyone say what effects they experienced if they started taking hair footy them stopped. Has anyone experienced result from taking hair finity, and then lost results after ceasing to take it or a hiatus in taking it (did you lose the results you achieved if you stopped taking hairfinity)?

    • OF says:

      If someone has a poor diet then if they stop taking the multivitamins will mean their hair growth will slow down or stop.

      However have you seen many posts saying this?

      The posters who have problems point to overdosing on the amount of Vitamin A in the pills, or other medical problems they have. This is because no-one will admit their diet is poor.

    • Jay says:

      There aren’t any side effects from stopping, as far as I know. Your hair will go back to how it was before. The changes will be internal only. The new hair growing will not have the benefit of the vitamins. Hair that is already on your head will not be affected. To retain length, you must take care of your hair by deep conditioning, moisturizing, sealing, trimming split ends, etc…

    hi I just started taking hr a week ago and I must say I was never able to grow my nails but now my nails have grown. but I will be checking my hair growth at the end of the month because I cut it all off the day before I started the hf.

    • Jay says:

      I’ve never had a problem growing my nails long but they used to slice right off rather easily. With hf they are much stronger and I can have them all long at the same time, lol. It’s one of the first changes I noticed as well.

      Good luck in your hair journey and thanks for commenting!

    Are you receiving any kinds of compensation (such as money, discounts, free products, etc) for promoting Hairfinity, or providing the links and the coupons for Hairfinity vitamins?

    • Jay says:

      The disclaimer is at the bottom of the post. I purchased every bottle with my own funds. I pay the same as everyone else. I post coupons because it’s helpful and I try to buy when a coupon is available. The link I posted is an affiliate link but I’m not associated with HF at all. They are busy giving away products to vloggers with long hair and celebs who don’t use the stuff anyway… :/

    can i give Hairfinity pills to my 11 year old daughter?

    • Jay says:

      No you can’t! The HF website explicitly states do not give to children. Just let her hair grow on its own. It will grow and be healthy if you help her take good care of it. No relaxers, no growth oils or pills… Just wash and condition it regularly. Keep her hair braided or twisted with NO extensions. Moisturize with a good leave in like Shea Moisture Curl and Style Milk and seal her hair with raw shea butter. Have her spray her hair with water or aloe Vera juice every couple days and give her a satin pillow case to sleep on.

      Children shouldn’t have to worry about the length of their hair or how fast it’s growing. Healthy hair is what’s most important. And make sure she knows afro kinky curly hair is beautiful. My niece is 6 years old and her hair is very kinky, type 4b, it reaches the top of her pants. All I do is what I wrote above- I take good care of it. Nothing extra is necessary.

  35. Kelley says:

    Can u open the pills and take with applesauce. Will that be ok

    • Jay says:

      It should be. The pills aren’t large at all. You could take them with applesauce and not open them up. But honestly if swallowing something is that difficult I’d just not take them.

    Hello! What happens if you suddenly stop taking the pills?

  37. Kayla says:

    So your saying without the multi vitamin and fish oil sup your taking its possible that these hairfinity pills aren’t what was giving you growth?

    • Jay says:

      I took a multi and fish oil a few years ago. I don’t take them anymore. I was vegetarian for about a year and a half so I stopped taking those supplements. These days I eat a balanced diet and drink GenEssentials Greens whenever I feel like I haven’t had a lot of green vegetables that day. The only capsule supplements I take are 2 HF per day.

    Hi i have been taking hairfinity pills for about a week now and was wondering has anyone urine changed to a yellowish like neon green?

    • Jay says:

      Excess water soluble vitamins will make urine yellow but green is unusual. If the color is noticeably yellow you aren’t drinking enough water…most people should drink at least 2 liters per day. As far as the green color goes, I think it’s best to stop taking the pills and speak to a medical professional if you really concerned.

      • Anonymous says:

        Well i suppose green is a little far, but more of a neon yellow. I drink water but not as much as i should i guess. Thank you for the advice

        • Jay says:

          Try upping your water intake and see if there’s any change. If not, I think it’s best to stop. You’re likely getting all the vitamins you need already.

          Edit- and water from food does count. Eating lots of fruits and vegetables provides the body with some of the water it needs.

  39. anonymous says:

    I have tried hair infinity.. My side effects were severe headaches. I will agree it does make your hair grow EVERYWHERE. it was also helpful for nail growth. I do know if drinking LOTS of water you will not experience the skin outbreaks.

    • Jay says:

      I’m pretty headache/migraine prone (they’re hereditary). Luckily I haven’t experienced any headaches from this vitamin. I think the MSM could be the culprit actually. Thanks for sharing your experience.

    • Jay says:

      What you’re asking is the same as saying “can I eat pizza and perm my hair?” The two things have nothing to do with each other. Vitamins help provide your body with specific nutrients. What you choose to do with your hair is your choice. I wouldn’t advise using a lot of chemicals because they are damaging to the hair but that’s a personal decision and everyone’s hair is different. If your hair can handle a relaxer and BKT that’s up to you. If you experience breakage or other issues then it would be wise to rethink how you handle your hair. Taking a vitamin, eating certain foods, etc…has no effect on the hair that is already on your head.

    • Jay says:

      I’ve never “lost hair” while taking Hairfinity. I’ve been taking it for about 10 months now (off and on). The only way to lose hair is via breakage or shedding and I’ve had neither as a result taking vitamins.

  48. Anonymous says:

    Does hairfinity works on fine hair?

    • Jay says:

      I guess that depends on your definition of “work.” I have fine hair- meaning my strands are very small and delicate. My strands have stayed the same. I haven’t noticed a change, but I am not taking them in an attempt to alter my hair’s properties. I have very dense hair- meaning a lot of strands, so I’m also not worried about changes in density, nor have I noticed any. I take these vitamins solely to increase my growth rate and it has worked for me in that way. I haven’t paid much attention to other aspects in my hair, therefore I haven’t noticed any changes in strand thickness or hair density. I hope that makes sense.

  49. Clarise says:

    Does hairfinity cause nightmares?

      I don’t know. You’ll have to check their website to find out what ages can take them. I know that these are not for children. Many herbal substances effect hormones, etc…which is why it’s good to do research and not give to young people.

    I took hairfinity exactly as directed. Ive only taken them a week and I broke out on my face so bad…I will never take this again.

  53. corrina says:

    I’m trying to see what product best to take for hair growth but with hairfinity do you excessively have to work out . I’ve already drink water a lot i also have a very strict and clean diet and I walk a lot and off and on(if my body isn’t tired) work out. But what do you recommend to do to maintain weight while taking supplements? Also what do you recommended the consumption period for products like these ?

    • Jay says:

      I do work out but that has nothing to do with taking Hairfinity. I workout regularly for my overall health and fitness. I don’t have any recommendations because the two things aren’t related really. Do what you’re comfortable with.

      I’ve taken Hairfinity off and on since 2012. The longest stretch with no break was about 11 months (starting August 2013). I took a different vitamin for a month then got lazy, but I’m back to Hairfinity now. I like my results. I’ve had minimal side effects (minor breakouts when I started again last month). I’ll continue to take them consistently. Just listen to your body and stop if you have any negative experiences.

      Edited to add: weight gain, loss, and maintenance is calories in versus calories burned. There are 30 calories in a serving of Hairfinity.

  54. Takeyah says:

    Does hairfinity cause thinning of edges? And why is my hair shedding so much. It has follicle attached to it still though. Should I stop use?

    • Jay says:

      I haven’t noticed any shedding or thinning. If Hairfinity is the only change to your hair care regimen and diet, you could stop taking them and see if the shedding stops. Taking garlic pills or using garlic shampoo should decrease shedding.

  55. Vikki says:

    I have taken Hairfinity for going on (2) months. I have not seen a significant amount of hair growth but I am more concerned with the health of my hair the length. I have experienced some good effects and some bad.

    The good is that my hair is much more stronger. Before taking the pills, a substantial amount of hair would shed and break. Now almost no hair sheds and my new growth is thicker, shinier, softer, holds moisture and is more manageable. I also noticed the hair on my knuckles grew longer lol. My nails are longer and stronger as well. I wear a wig ( I removed the clips because they snag hair)]protective hairstyle] and co-wash my hair alot and been treating it very good lately.

    Bad side- I broke out like there was no tomorrow. I always had dry- normal skin and my skin was then classified as “oily” I never had bad ache in my life and I stayed on top of it, but as soon as one break out healed, another broke out. I liked the results the pills gave me but I felt like I was turning into a chemist; trying to stop the breakouts and trying to find a product that would make the ache go away for good (and I eat very clean to top it all off) .I finally went to my dermatologist and he looked up Hairfinity and said it was the Biotin and MSM that broke me out and that the product had no pantothenic acid to help fight ache. He said that I don’t get enough of it from my food essentially, it was breading the bacteria which showed up on my face in the form of ache. I was prescribed an anti-biotic and an expensive face lotion BUT was permitted to keep taking the pills.

    Result: I know that it sounds like I am taking alot, I am no doctor, but I went to see one and essentially, what they say is true, consult you doctor before taking a supplement!

    I am now ache free, I take 1 pill in the morning and one in the night time with a mulit- vitamin chew ( for the pantothenic acid). I also take fish oil. I still am taking the anti-biotic till its finished and using the prescribed cream and my skin and hair has all of the benefits of the Hairfinity pill, without the adverse effects.

  56. Anais says:

    If you stop taking the vitamins suddenly, will it cause your hair to fall out?

    • Jay says:

      Vitamins are a dietary supplement. If you stop taking them the added vitamins and minerals will no longer be in your system. Your body will go back to relying on the vitamins and minerals from your food.

  57. T. Foster says:

    I started taking them a weel ago, while sticking to my healthy diet. My face looks a damn mess! Never had problems with my face breaking out but baby! after taking these pill im hiding from my man he cant see me like this! Thank a lot Hairfinity! Im just going to stick with Biotin pils.

  58. Stassia H says:

    I see that you took the Manetabolism vitamins which I plan on ordering tomorrow. All I see as I search for information on the pills is women going natural. I perm my hair every 3-4 months and I would love to know if I can continue the regular treatments on my hair along with taking these vitamins or if it will cause my hair to fall out?!

    • Jay says:

      What you eat and what you do with the hair already on your head have nothing to do with each other. As I’ve said in another reply, this question is like asking “can I eat pizza and relax my hair?” While both effect your health, one does not directly tie to the other. How you choose to treat your hair is your personal choice. Vitamins can supplement a poor diet, but you also have to take good care of the hair that grows. The definition of “take good care of” is up to you.

  59. LaTonya says:

    Wow I haven’t been on here in a long while but was playing catchup reading some of your stories. I have been taking hairfinity now for almost 2 yrs. I also wear a sew in. Normally a sew in can stay in anyehere from 3-4 months but because of hairfinity I have to get it done every 6-8 weeks because my hair grow extremely fast. If your skin is breaking out its because you all have,allergies to something thats inside of the medicine. Do your research on what you are allergic too and not allergic too. I also hate sallowing pills but its worth it. I always try to take my vitamins before bed because your body is resting and normally any vitamin can take its course while asleep. Plenty plenty water and vegatables are the best. Try oiling your scalp with either olive oil or grape seed oil. Jay my girl you have been on your stuff. I mist say Im ready to get out of the natural phase because I can blow my hair out one hour and the next hour look like Diana Ross. Ewwwww chile. Also for the ladies breaking out with the dry skin. Try to keep water in your body definitely and use a moiaturizing cream for the face while taking these pills.. Good look ladies……ONE LUV

  61. queen says:

    Hmmmm, I have read a lot of comments about hair treatments and vitamins but I have never tried any except for natural oil treatments (olive, shea butter and coconut oil) which I just started fews weeks ago. Though i have used shea butter for some time as hair food. I usually relax my hair every 4-5 months but I have decided to stop relaxing and go natural because my hair is light and its breaking seriously. I want my hair longer and healthier but I am scared of using pills to grow hair, I am even more confused as to what product to use. People complain of break outs with HF and I really can’t contend with break outs cos they are just so annoying, I am still fighting the ones on my face now. Should I go for just biotin and multivitamins? I dont know what do. Does anyone have an advice for me?

    • Jay says:

      Honestly, your hair will grow regardless. If you don’t want to take anything, then don’t. Make sure you drink enough water for 1/2 your weight in pounds. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables with every meal. Exercise and treat your body well. Hair grows on its own. Take good care of the hair that you have by deep conditioning, using protein, and moisturizing often. Don’t do too much too it. Search low manipulation styles or protective styles on YouTube.

  62. stephanie says:

    I just ordered my first bottle of hair infinity and I am also scheduled to get box braids. I am wondering if I should wait on one or the other. Don’t want to spend a lot of money on braids to have to take them out sooner then I would normally. I know a protective style is good for the hair and may actually aid in the growth. Any advise, also I am wondering what happens if I stop taking the vitamins. Will my hair shed or break off?

    • Jay says:

      If the style is more important, you should hold off. They may cause your hair to grow out faster and therefore the braids wouldn’t look neat for as long. If you can do them yourself, you can rebraid the perimeter if it gets too messy for your liking.

      Vitamins will simply supplement the nutrients you get from your diet. When you stop taking them, your body will go back to getting the nutrients from your diet only.

    I just started taking the Hairinfinity I am doing the braid outs. Where I braid my hair at night and where it crinkled. I didn’t want to do braids and have to remove them early. Plus I’m doing the inversion method which keeps my hair oiled. Maybe this is a option for you too, Stephanie.

    • Jay says:

      I personally did not experience breakouts with HF. However, if you are acne prone and taking a very strong medication to treat it, I would reconsider adding other variables to the equation. Think about if possible acne is worth a little bit of hair…that’s really all it is- an inch at most for those using Hairfinity. Good luck with whatever decision you make.

      I took a multi-vitamin in conjunction with Hairfinity. Just go through each vitamin and mineral and make sure the combined amounts are reasonable and if they are over the recommended amount they should be water soluble so your body can get rid of the excess.

I didn’t break out taking Biotin 10,000 mcg’s I take Biotin 10,000 mcg one soft gel only a day I don’t take it everyday I do skip some days and one tablet of Fish oil. I eat plenty Fish Salmon and drink a gallon of water daily. I also keep my scalp greased and don’t wash my hair to often.

    The Lady Soma Biotin is the third brand of biotin I have taken over the years. Although I have seen results from all brands, this one has been the most noticeable. I bought it to make my hair grow longer. It has grown about .5-1 inch per month so far (been taking it for almost 3 months). I wish I had before and after picture. LOVE THESE RESULTS.
