What’s inside?
The Hairy Pill® contains active ingredients that have been clinically proven to decrease the production of the hormone responsible for hair loss and stimulate blood flow to the hair follicles to stimulate regrowth.
What to expect

  • 0 – 3 months: Hair loss slows or stops. New hairs may begin to push out the old.
  • 3 – 6 months: Hair shedding slows down and you may notice new hair growth.
  • 6 – 12 months: Your hair becomes thicker, fuller, and stronger all over.
Proven to treat:
  • Thinning hair
  • Bald spots
  • Receding hairline

That doesn’t make it a secret. We can tell you over the phone.
