Nu Hair Review
Nu Hair products are herbal-based formulas that are supposed to block the negative effects of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) on hair follicles, the main cause of hereditary baldness, while providing nourishment for thinning hair. The manufacturer claims that Nu Hair products can regrow hair in men and women. Each set of Nu Hair treatment consists of two packs of pills (hair regrowth pills and DHT blocker pills) and a topical serum. The hair growth pills contain so-called natural DHT blockers such as saw palmetto, Fo-Ti (He Shou Wu) and phytosterol complex (mostly beta-sitosterol). Furthermore, they contain kudzu and soy extracts (both rich in isoflavones such as the natural antioxidant daidzein that are known to be phytoestrogens, often speculatively associated with fighting male pattern baldness) and black pepper extract. The black pepper extract is present in the form of a proprietary ingredient called BioPerine that is supposed to increase the bioavailability of nutritional supplements, thus helping them become more effective. The DHT-blocker supplement pills are in their composition similar to the hair regrowth pills but they also contain pumpkin seed oil (rich in iron, zinc and essential fatty acids). The hair serum contains He Shou Wu, biotin and panthenol. Panthenol strengthens and moisturises the hair shaft and lubricates hair follicles and is therefore a frequent component of shampoos and hair conditioners.
Nu Hair is comprised of ingredients that can be found in many other natural hair loss products and hair conditioners and none of them has ever been clinically proven and independently verified to promote hair growth. Although the majority of similar natural products state that they can help maintain the existing hair, Nu Hair makes bold claims that it can regrow hair. Consumer reviews of Nu Hair are almost impossible to find, probably as impossible as finding new hair grown with it.
