Vanarex, found online at Vanarex.com, is a new hair loss and hair thinning treatment product, which promises their customers that they will begin seeing results in as few as 60 to 90 days of use.
How Does It Work?
The Vanarex Complete Method is described as a three pronged approach. First, you are supposed to use the Vanarex Volume Max Thickening Shampoo to clean all the dirt and excess oil from the scalp to better absorb the hair regrowth solution. In addition, the shampoo will increase the health and wellness of the existing hair.
You will then apply the Vanarex Hair Regrowth Treatment directly to all balding and thinning areas of your scalp with their "easy to use dropper" in both the morning and the evening. Massage the treatment into your scalp for ten seconds, and leave it remaining on the scalp.
The final and third step is take two Vanarex Vitacaps daily. These capsules contain "herbal plant extracts and nutrients" of a proprietary blend and have been formulated to protect your hair follicles from the effects of DHT, which is the body chemical that triggers hair loss.
Ingredients and Side Effects
The website does provide a full list of ingredients for all their products on their Frequently Asked Questions page, but the most important thing to know is that Vanarex Hair Regrowth Treatment uses the only ingredient which has been FDA approved for hair loss, and that is Minoxidil. Specifically this scalp treatment uses a 5% Minoxidil solution, which is used in other well-known hair loss products like Rogaine.
Minoxidil does have a long list of potential side effects if used improperly, however, and this product should never by used by women, by people under the age of 18, if you have a medical scalp condition, or if your hair loss is located on the front of your hairline.
Some people who are beginning a new regimen may experience mild irritation or itching of the scalp, and this is perfectly normal. However, if you experience side effects like dizziness, light headedness, headaches, or anything else, you should discontinue use immediately.
A three month supply of the Vanarex Complete Method is currently priced at $99.00, while a six month supply is priced at $258.00. They also sell their products individually, in prices that range from $9.99 for a bottle of their shampoo up to $59.99 for a supply of their Hair Regrowth Treatment.

It appears that this product is still extremely new to the market, and as such there are very few reviews of Vanarex provided by actual customers and users. That being said, 5% Minoxidil solutions for hair loss have been around for a long time and have been shown to provide successful hair regrowth for some users, but not for all.
The Wikipedia page dedicated to Minoxidil says that there is no consensus in the scientific community as to why it works for some users and not others, though studies have shown that men who have suffered hair loss for less than five years and who have smaller areas of baldness should react better to the treatment than others will.
This company also does not appear to provide a worthwhile or trustworthy Refund Policy, so that is something to keep in mind when ordering.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are many, many different products which claim to help or alleviate hair loss, depending on your personal needs or preferences, including TLS Hair, Hairfinity, Hair Formula 37, Hair Essentials for Hair Growth, and then there are options that don’t claim to “fix” thinning hair, but rather disguise it, like Toppik or KeraFiber.
