Hairclub\'s EXT


#1

Does anyone have any experiences with HCM’s EXT plan? It is composed of a shampoo, this spray, a conditioner, and a vitamin pill. I went in for a consultation with them, and they charge like 2-3k for a year of this stuff, which includes salon visits and what not. I thought this sounded outrageously high and too good to be true to work. Anyone?

Please don’t fall for this. This is nothing more than subpar shampoo, conditioner, a spray containing Saw Palmetto and regular minoxidil. I just purchased a 6-month supply of Kirkland Minoxidil (5%) on Amazon for $25 - that would be about $60.00 for a years supply (including shipping). Go online and buy yourself some piroctone olamine shampoo such as the Ginger Anti-Dandruff Shampoo from the Body Shop for about $14.00 for the big bottle. Buy a good hair vitamin like Maxi Hair or similar from the Vitamin Shoppe for about $15.00. You can get much BETTER quality products for a FRACTION of the cost of that crap from HCM. Save your money - it will NOT work any better than what I have suggested.

Snake oil. Do not fall for it.

For about half of that price (or less, depending on your willingness to use generic brands), you can buy Rogaine, 2% Nizoral, and get a script for Propecia (finasteride) or Avodart (dutasteride). These are the only products proven through the scientific method (double-blind studies) to have any positive effect against hair loss.

actually, if you go for propecia over avodart then and you have a tight budget, then get proscar (same as propecia - drugwise and cost wise- but more miligrams) and divide the pill into 4ths or 5ths. you’ll save a ton of money…
