Hairburst Review: Scam or Legit?


A few months ago, I came across a product called Hairburst that claims to help you “grow longer, thicker hair, increase hair strength and elasticity, prevent hair breakage and nourish your hair from within.”

Hairburst is women’s hair vitamn that seeks to improve hair thickness, volume and overall health through the supplementation of vitamins and nutrients that are essential to a healthy head of hair.

I’d heard of Hairburst from a friend of mine (back when it used to be Hairvits), but I dismissed it as a male-pattern-baldness gimmick and, like my friend, forgot about it after we separated.

Last week, I ran into her again. Her hair was fuller than I’d ever seen it, with a clean, sparkly sheen and healthy thickness and volume. She chalked it up to using Hairburst. Although I’d heard rumors of Hairburst being a scam, I was convinced by the apparent results right in front of my eyes,so I figured I’d give Hairburst a go and see what would come of it.

About Hairburst

The product itself is an oral supplement, designed to rejuvenate your hair from the inside out.  The main conceit is while topical creams, shampoos, serums, etc., may have an aesthetic effect on the hair and scalp, making it seem thicker, more colorful, more voluminous or more healthy, they don’t actually affect the health of the hair. It’s akin to painting a car when really it needs a new engine.

Hairburst takes another approach, by affecting the hair on a dietary level. Hairburst is an oral treatment that’s taken once a day, and is designed to provide your body with the necessary tools it needs to provide you with healthy, long, thick, vibrant hair.

Using only natural ingredients, Hairburst is a combination of vitamins and nutrients in a concentrated, powder form. The product comes in capsules, which are taken twice daily to supplement your diet with the proper hair nutrients. The formula inside each capsule is as follows:

  • Biotin
  • MSM
  • Collagen
  • BCAAs
  • Silica
  • Selenium
  • Zinc
  • Hyaluronic Acid
  • Calcium
  • Folic Acid
  • Vitamin A complex
  • Vitamin B complex
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin D

They divide these ingredients into two different groups, based on the supposed aspects of hair health that they target. The vitamins aimed at hair growth are: biotin, MSM, BCAAs, Silica and collagen, while the nutrients that are designed for hair health are selenium, zinc, hyaluronic acid, calcium and folic acid.

It’ll run you $42.95 for a single bottle, with discounts for 3 and 6 bottle orders. Every bottle comes 60 capsules filled with these ingredients. They recommend you take two a day to see maximum results.

My Experience

Every woman has different problems with their hair. Some struggle with split ends, others have trouble with thinning hair, while others can’t obtain the sheen or volume they desire.

I fit firmly in the middle camp — I’ve been struggling with hair loss for years. My hair started dissipating in my late 30s, due largely to stress. It wasn’t something I noticed at first; but I started to take note as more and more follicles fell out when washing my hair.

I’ve never had “bald spots” or anything like that, but there’s been a noticeable thinning, dryness and frangibility in the last decade of my life. So my goals with Hairburst were to strengthen my hair, get more volume and thickness, decrease cracking and breaking and overall increase the health of my mane.

It took me a little while to receive my shipment, due to the fact that I live in the U.S. and Hairburst is based in the U.K., which was admittedly pretty annoying.

When I finally got it, I was pretty anxious to get started and see if anything would occur.

After 2 weeks, I was considering giving up. I didn’t notice a thing, but I figured I had nothing to lose by continuing the regimen. I had already ordered the product, and I still had half a bottle less. Perhaps I was being too impatient, I thought.

After a month, I realized I was being too impatient. I noticed some small signs that my hair was improving: less hair was coming out in the shower, my hair was strangely thicker and stronger, and my hair seemed more lustrous and shinier.

Now, these weren’t massive improvements, but they were certainly increases in quality over where my hair was before taking Hairburst.

I ordered more, and now I’m about 100 days into their “program”. I’ve noticed some serious improvements in my hair. It’s thicker, stronger, and more brilliant than before. It’s much, much stronger than a few months ago and it doesn’t crack when I’m straightening it or curling it like it used to. It’s less brittle and actually feels soft and plush when I run my hands through it.

The only problems I have with the product is that with Hairburst based out of the UK, it takes a while to get here when I order it. Shipping costs are pretty expensive too, at about $20 per package, which can seriously add up if you’re unsure about the product and want to order bottles separately.

It’s also more expensive than cheaper alternatives, and it takes much longer than sprays or shampoos to be effective.

All in all, it’s a good product. My hair became thicker, longer, stronger and altogether healthier. On the downside, it takes a while to receive, and takes a while to work. It’s also a bit pricey.


  • Natural formula.
  • Different from normal hair treatments in that it’s a vitamin supplement for attacking the problems from the root.
  • Works as advertised to improve hair.


  • Takes a while to work — not instantaneous results.
  • Costs more than some other products.
  • Shipping is expensive and it can take a long time to receive the product for those outside of the United Kingdom.
