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.
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.
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.
