How to Use
The directions suggest taking one or two supplements daily. Some may be tempted to increase the dosage believing that doing so will help increase the benefit. It is vital to take the recommended amount because some supplements can be toxic when too much is ingested.
In my research, I found this product averages about $12 for 60 tablets. This should last you around thirty days. The price is fairly reasonable in comparison with other vitamin/mineral products.
What I Like
I like the cost. You are not going to break the bank with this one.
This is an okay product. It has some essential vitamins and minerals, and the cost is reasonable. You are getting a list of ingredients that should help your hair look better.
Would I buy it? No. Why? Most of the vitamins and minerals are found in the foods you eat. For those of you who feel you need a supplement, you are better served buying something at your local grocer or health food store. Why take a supplement that only contains part of the nutrients you need? Other supplements offer a longer and more complete list of the vitamins and minerals you need for your overall health. I recommend one of those.
