Earlier this month, the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology (JDD) published a study called A Six-Month, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study Evaluating the Safety and Efficacy of a Nutraceutical Supplement for Promoting Hair Growth in Women with Self-Perceived Thinning Hair that looked at the effect of Nutrafol® on women between the ages of 21 to 65. Overall the study had 40 participants, 26 that received Nutrafol® and 14 that received a placebo, that were tracked for 180 days and the results were very good. The users of Nutrafol® saw an increase in hair thickness and hair counts.
Nutrafol® is a great option for those patients looking for a hair supplement. It takes at least three to six months before you will start to see the benefit of Nutrafol®, but for many patients it can take up to year. While some patients experiencing short term hair loss like telogen effluvium, may only take Nutrafol® for a year, we would recommend taking it as long as you want to help maintain healthy hair.
At Medi Tresse, we recommend that all of our patients be on a hair supplement, whether it is Nutrafol® or Viviscal®. Most people do not get the necessary vitamins and nutrients through our everyday diets, and supplements like Nutrafol® or Viviscal® not only provide these key nutrients, but also offer other supplements that have been shown to improve hair growth and hair health. If you are interested in learning more about hair supplements do not hesitate to contact our office.
