Kintsugi Hair Reviews
Kintsugi Hair is a hair care company headed by Beverly Hills salon owner Paul Lindsey that markets a line of hair supplements intended to provide women with scientifically-supported formulas that strengthen and beautify hair.
About Kintsugi Hair
Paul Lindsey, the creator of Kintsugi Hair supplements is a hair science expert and the owner of No. 275, a top-rated salon in the heart of Beverly Hills.
In working with clients in Los Angeles, including celebrity clients, Lindsey realized that there was a real need for an active serum that would help support hair growth and improve hair health, strength and density.
Lindsey worked with Dr. Layke and Dr. Danielpour, two cosmetic surgeons in Los Angeles to learn more about the developing science in cosmetic medicine, including the latest studies around improving hair health.
Products and Ingredients
Kintsugi Amplifying Glaze - One of the company’s most popular products is a volumizing serum treatment powered by marine extracts, premium polymers, and restorative protein compounds.
The key active ingredients include proprietary blends developed by leading cosmetics laboratories:
SymHair Force 1631 - Developed by Symrise, this formula combines Pentylene Glycol (and) Isochrysis Galbana Extract. This is a natural extract from a South Pacific Algae that has anti-hair loss and hair revitalizing properties.
According to the company, in their trials, SymHair Force 1631 showed an increase in anagen hair of 10.5% and telogen hair of 11.7% against a placebo. It also showed an increase of hair and density in beard hair.
Overall they state that this ingredient reduces thinning of hair, prolongs the growth phase and delays the entry into the regression phase. It also has hair strengthening properties that prevent hair breakage.
Similar ingredients are found in Keranique - Lift & Repair Treatment Spray.
Procapil - A trademarked plant derived formula that fights hair loss via a two pronged approach targeting poor scalp micro-circulation and follicle atrophy.
First, it works to keep your hair follicles healthy to avoid brittle hair that can break. Next it increases cell metabolism to slow down hair loss.
The product data sheet shows results of a clinical study in which 67% of participants had their Anagen hair (new growth) number increase vs a placebo.
It is oftentimes used in conjunction with or as an alternative to the prescription hair loss medication Minoxidil.
The ingredients are: Biotinyl-GHK (a form of hair vitamin biotin), Apigenin (a flavonoid found in citrus plants, and Oleanolic acid (derived from olive trees).
Kerastore 2.0 - The manufacturer claims that this compound can mimic the natural proteins found in your hair. Using the latest technology it can offer targeted repair to damaged hair surfaces.
In other applications it was shown to improve the properties of wet hair, making it easier to remove tangles and ease wet combing.
The remaining ingredients listed on their website are common bases of most hair serums, shampoos, and conditioners.
Overall, the product is focused on restoring hair health and improving density and thickness while preventing future damage from occurring. Using proprietary ingredients, this supplement aims to support a longer growing cycle for the hair on your head.
Additional Products include:
- Awakening Mist - Scalp Tonic
- Infused Hydration - Cleansing Conditioner
- Moisture Bond - Conditioning Spray
- KeraNew - Nourishing Hair Complex (Full Review)
It appears Kintsugi Hair uses a similar formula for all their products. They attempt to form a unique blend using a base of 3 key proprietary scientifically formulated compounds on top of standard hair care ingredients.

Online Customer Reviews & Complaints
At this time there isn’t much independent online feedback for this brand. The majority of positive reviews come from the company website itself, which usually isn’t enough to go by.
The promotional video and marketing materials claim that many of Lindsey’s clients have tested the product with and for him, and have been satisfied and excited about their results.
The company does have a verified profile with the BBB and an A+ rating despite very little customer feedback, good or bad.
Competitors and Alternatives
There are many other hair products out there with similar claims of supporting hair growth. A few examples of this would be Vegamour, Vita Hair, or Hair Therapy.
Each of these are similar, as hair serums or ingestible supplements, that are intended to support hair growth and health, and improve the length of time that each follicle is in its “growth phase.”
Many of these other products have more or better reviews than Kintsugi Hair Amplifying Glaze, and are worth comparing and researching to get a better idea of which is the best product for you.
The Bottom Line
Overall, the lack of online reviews and the bold claims make us hesitant to fully recommend Kintsugi Hair.
Based on the evaluation of their leading product, Amplifying Glaze, it does seem that the company uses ingredients that have at least some clinical evidence towards their efficacy.
It is also reassuring that the company offers a 90 day money back guarantee, which should give you ample time to evaluate any one of their hair treatments.
If the lack of online feedback is concerning to you, another option is to research some of the active ingredients to see if you can find a similar option from a more familiar brand with a longer track record.

So far so great
I have been using the amplifying glaze for 3 days and absolutely love it. In just 3 days I have less tiny pieces of hair from breakage all over my sink.
I’m getting my hair done now and my stylist commented on how great my hair feels. Can’t wait to see how much better it gets with time. Smells great too n
It works...I kid you not
After going thru Alopecia for 2 years at which time I had to shave my head 2x because it kept growing back in spots only..... I decided to try hair growth pills....I tried them ALL...everyone of them. THEN I came across Kintsugi and it changed my hair into this flowing, thick growing hair. I am aamzed and have cried tears of joy. I have been faithfully using this for 6 months. It is part of my daily supplements that I take. I will never stop.
IF you have tried them all........its time you gave Kintsugi a try.
peace & love to all
You Get What You Pay For!
In the past I've tried many hair growth systems with no success UNTIL I tried Kintsugi! With very baby fine hair every strand counts so when it falls out you really notice. After using Kintsugi's Keranew capsules for 1 month I noticed a big difference with less hair in the sink or even on my pillowcase. After 3 months I too noticed that not only was my hair growing back but it grew back in my original color! And more than that my eye lashes were growing longer and thicker!
Being that it is somewhat pricey I, unfortunately, decided to switch to a different manufacturer that was less expensive. Within 1 month I noticed my hair was falling out, again, as well as my eyelashes becoming thin and short. What a big mistake. I'm now back to using Kintsugi Keranew and will stay as a very very satisfied customer. The old adage, at least for me, 'You Get What You Pay For' still applies.
Thank you, Kintsugi!
New hair growth.
I’m writing this review only because I couldn’t find anyone else with the side effects the pills gave me. After 5 bottles my hair looks much better, thicker, even my eyelashes look fuller and longer. But I get this rash all over my body, really itchy and I had to stop the treatment, the product is great it works, but I guess for some people like myself it's better not to take it! What a shame.

hair has more body & hold
after taking 2 capsules daily for almost 3 months, I do believe my thin, weak, colored & permed hair has new vigor & bounce!
My hair seems thicker with new growth in bare areas & it seems stringer, holding curls & needing less attention to maintain --- I want to order more & look forward to continued improvements!
Repair and restore
The Kintsugi hair supplement has hugely helped my fine hair to grow back after being damaged from bleaching it finally.
I have been using the supplements for two months now and I’m very excited to see how continued use will improve my hair growth and restoration from the bleaching damage!
My Hair stopped falling out!
I always had beautiful, thick hair, but in December I contracted a bad case of Covid 19. Since that time, my hair has been dry and falling out at an usually high rate. I was actually afraid I was going bald!
I tried the Kintsugi supplements...and after a month, I was pleased to see that my hair stopped falling out. I've been using the supplements for 2 months now, and my hair is definitely looking much better. I would definitely recommend this product!
This really works for my hair!
Hair Growth Apparent
It works as advertised.
The Kintsugi Hair capsules are excellent. My hair and nails have improved 100% in a short amount of time. I have hypothyroidism which causes problems with hair and nail growth among other issues. My hair use to be thick and long. Now my hair is thin and falling out by the hand full.
After taking this product for over 2 months my hair is stronger, not falling out and growing again. It looks and feels so heathy. My nails were breaking, splitting from the tip to the cuticle, ridges, and so brittle. No more since I started taking this excellent product. I am so pleased. As an RN I recommend this product.
The pills are very potent.
No more thinning hair
I've had thinning hair for awhile now and needed to find something that would help grow and make my hair thicker and stronger.
After using Kintsugi for a few months I started to notice less hair falling out on my hairbrush. My hair is now twice as thick and is growing much faster.
Even my hairdresser has noticed the difference.
Love This Product - Really Works!!!
Results from using KeraNew
KeraNew---Awesome results so far!
The Powerful, Effective Duo!
My name is Naomi and I am a 45 year old contract Emergency Department BSN Registered Nurse (travel nurse). In January of 2021 I was working a covid contract in a very remote area of Northern Maine near the Canadian border.
During this assignment I started to notice my hair, skin, and nails deteriorating at a very rapid rate, even though I took vitamin/mineral supplements and remained well hydrated consistently. I immediately starting investigating potential causes for these issues. I started using Shapiro MD hair care products at that time.
Although Shapiro hair products did help with my integumentary system issues, it wasn't giving me the level of results I wanted.
The addition of KeraNew with my Shapiro products changed all that. Today, my skin, hair, and nails are thriving. The combination of these two amazing products has been effective above expectation. I will continue to use both products for as long as they are available.
Pro stylist. Covid hair loss is common around 4 months after covid. You are forced into the fall out phase of hair growth. As fast as the hair falls out is as fast as it grows back and it could come in in a different color and texture. So it doesn't mean this supplement works. Your hair growing back in is supposed to happen.
