I’ve been asked a lot of times the question, ‘Does Provillus really work?’ To answer this, it is important to understand how it works and why it works.
There are a number of reasons that causes hair loss in both men and women, so it is important to cover these here:
This is different in both men and women.
Men experience hair loss in a more dramatic way which is why you will a large number of men thinning or balding on a frequent basis. This condition is called “male pattern baldness’ and is primarily caused by the hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone). This hormone is linked with the hormone testosterone and actually binds the receptor sites on the scalp and the hair follicles. When this happens, it will affect the normal process of hair growth, resulting in hair loss.
Women on the other hand go through a number of hormonal changes throughout their lives. A number of these hormone imbalances can trigger hair loss, particularly after pregnancy or during menopause.
How Do Hormones Affect Hair Loss?
Hormone changes in both men and women will cause hair loss as the cells that are responsible for hair growth are affected. The level of nutrients and blood flow to the hair follicles will become interrupted and without healthy growth cycles and nutrients, they will stop producing hairs and eventually die.
One Area That Can Cause Hair Loss is That of Stress
Stress can cause huge hormonal imbalances resulting in the same results as I have already highlighted above. This however does not become apparent until approximately 3 months after the stressful even has taken place,
Other Reasons For Hair Loss
There are also a number of other reasons why a person may experience hair loss as a result of the following:
- Body building supplements
- Dietary supplements
- Chemicals used in bleaching, perms, straightening – to name but a few
- Excessive heat from hair dryers
So as you can see there are a lot of reasons why you may loss hair in the first instance. But what can you do about it? This is where the use of a topical product and supplement can help you such as Provillus.
But Does Provillus Really Work?
In order to answer this question you need to examine what are the Provillus ingredients. Now it is important to ensure that you get the topical product containing the clinically proven ingredient – Minoxidil, together with the supplement. From my experience you must have both.
Provillus Differs in The UK & EU With USA & Wordwide
For customers within the UK and Europe, for reasons of distribution and other matters such as licensing, Provillus can only supply the nutrient supplement and not the topical product containing Minoxidil.
In the USA and elsewhere, Provillus supply both the topical Minoxidil and the nutrient supplement. It is important to realise this distinction as this has caused some concerns in the past.
Minoxidil was proven in a clinical study carried out by Clinical Trials.gov which is a service of the U.S. National Institute of Health. The 5% Minoxidil foam used in the trial was “shown to be effective in the treatment of male androgenetic alopecia in a 16 week trial. It was statistically significantly superior to placebo foam”. In addition to this, “no safety concerns were raised based on clinical laboratory test results, vital signs or scalp irritation scores”.
So this is research conducted to confirm that Minoxidil works. Sadly for customers in UK & EU, when you purchase Provillus you will not be getting the benefit of Minoxidil, which is a huge loss.
Provillus have gone further than the study and have provided 2 different formulations for men and women.
The difference being as a direct result of different hormone levels in men and women. I would strongly suggest that you do not use a product that has one formula for both men and women. There is an important difference and you want to avoid any issues that may arise if you use too much in the situation of a woman.
So Does Provillus Really Work?
You will find on various internet sites people saying that it did not work for them. This happens with every product you will find. It MUST be used correctly and it MUST be used over a prolonged period of time. It is not worth just ‘trying’ it for a few weeks. If you want to do that, then save your money and don’t order any.
The study I highlighted stated that it was shown to work in a 16 week trial, not 2 or 3 weeks. So for 16 weeks you will need to apply it twice a day and take the supplement. Yes this is a long time, but if your appearance is important to you then it is definitely worth it. The only other alternative is that of a hair transplant, which will cost $ Thousands and comes with a lot of pain AND is not guaranteed. 16 weeks to me is a small price to pay.
Yes, Provillus will really work, but you need to use it correctly. You cannot expect miracles, there are limits to every products. If you are committed to using Provillus correctly, then there is no reason what it can’t work for you.
