CUSTOMER REVIEWS
• “I bought this product about 2 - 3 months ago. Before I used this product, I have checked and tried
many things that apparently make your hair longer faster and healthier. I used Mail n Tail, didn't really
work like I wanted it to . It made no difference. I bought this mainly to make my hair longer. Also, before
I bought it, I dyed my hair 3 days beforehand. My hair has grown a good 2 and half inches already, when
it's suppose to grow about 1/2 in a month. I have also noticed that my nails don't break as often. But,
my skin feels no different then before, but it may just be my skin. Over all, this product is excellent for
hair growth, good with nails, but it may vary on skin. Amazing product over all.”
• “I had been struggling with thinning hair for the past six years. I stumbled on this product while
shopping at Walmart and I am now on my second bottle. There is a big difference in my hair and I am
very happy that my hair is thicker and is growing quite nicely. I am very pleased with this product and
will continue to take it as long as I need to.”
• “I've been using this for about three weeks now, and when I first purchased this I really was skeptical
but it honestly does work. About a week ago, I started noticing changes and that it was working. So far,
my hair has grown almost half an inch, my nails are growing faster, and are somewhat stronger, and my
skin looks amazing. My skin is clearing up of old acne scars, as well as a few fine lines, overall I'm getting
a nice and even skin tone. My skin looks the best it ever has, it has a perfect glow.”
