FNS “Follicle Nutrient System” Serum is an all-natural topical hair loss treatment that is used once per day. The product promises to provide all the nutrients that your scalp needs to promote a “healthy environment” for the re-growth of hair. The product is said to have no side effects and is safe for both men and women.
Unfortunately the product is another in a long line of “all-natural” hair loss products that doesn’t contain anything to help your hair to re-grow
How it works
The company recommends that you apply FNS “Follicle Nutrient System” Serum once per day to a clean, moist scalp. Simply apply to the targeted areas and message into the scalp. The product is said to target the hair follicles directly. The components in FNS are said to activate the cells and make them metabolize, synthesize and secrete. While that sounds really scientific it does not get to the root of the hair loss problem.
FNS is an enriched unique cell culture medium that is specifically formulated to provide the nutrients necessary for a healthy hair follicle. The list of ingredients is comprised of many nutrients and amino acids such as: Purified Water, Cinnamon Extract, SDA-40 Alcohol, Nylon-12, Lactic Acid, Glucose, Ascorbic Acid, D-Biotin -Vitamin H-, Choline Chloride, Choline Bitartrate, Folic Acid, Myo-Inositol, Nicotinic Acid –Niacinamide-, Paba, D-Calcium Pantothenate, Pyridoxine, Riboflavin, Thiamine, Alpha-Tocopherol Phosphate, Alpha-Tocopherol Phosphate, Vitamin B12, L-Alanine, L-Arginine, L-Aspartic Acid, L-Cysteine, L-Glutamine, Glycine, L-Histidine, L-Isoleucine, L-Leucine, L-Lysine, L-Methionine, L-Phenylalanine, L-Proline, L-Serine, L-Threonine, L-Tryptophan, L-Tyrosine, L-Valine, Inorganic Salts, Tetrahydrocurcumin, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Oleth-10, Sodium Bicarbonate, Cinnamon Oil, Sodium EDTA, Lactate, and Nisin.
While the list may look impressive, there is nothing in the ingredients that will prevent your existing hair from falling out or to promote the re-growth of new hair. What you will end up with is a scalp that
is enriched with nutrients, but still lacking in hair.
FNS’s Frequently Asked Questions
The very first question in the frequently asked questions is, “Does FNS Follicle Nutrient System Serum grow hair?” The answer to that question is, “Only your body can grow hair. However, FNS helps to create the optimal environment for supporting a healthy follicle.” Now that sounds like a product that is probably not going to be too effective. If FNS was such a great all-natural cure all for hair loss, they probably would have left that statement out.
Vitamins and amino acids are vital for health but not so much for fixing hair loss. A great deal of the ingredients found in this product can be found in a couple of supplements that are available at your local drug store for a fraction of the cost. By its own admission the company states that the product cannot grow hair but simply provide the right environment for hair to grow in. Unfortunately, if that “right environment” is filled with DHT, which is the leading cause of hair loss, then all the nutrients in the world won’t mean a thing. Add to the fact that the company touts using its other three products in conjunction with the serum to achieve maximum results and you have one fishy sounding product.
