Nourkrin is essentially a natural hair supplement, but it has also branched out into lotions and shampoos. On each of its packages it states that Nourkrin “Nourishes thinning hair and promotes existing hair growth.” And while its ingredients may help to provide an optimal environment for healthy hair growth, there is no substantial evidence that Nourkrin can encourage renewed hair growth or prevent the onset or progression of hair loss.
How is it MEANT to work?
Nourkrin says it “is an entirely natural, drug-free food supplement designed to supply your body with the specific nutrients needed to promote good, natural hair growth from the follicles.” Containing a range of marine based extracts, vitamins and minerals, Nourkrin as a hair supplement boasts ingredients that have been found to be beneficial to promoting good quality hair. But Nourkrin also says that its Extra Strength range “slows down and reduces thinning hair” in the first two months of use, and that the “key ingredient is a protein compound of marine extracts, including the cartilage of deep-sea fish.”
DOES it work?
Nourkrin is a product that has not been licenced by the MHRA or FDA and has therefore not been through the rigorous testing that medical hair loss treatments are subjected to. As far as the individual ingredients are concerned, none of them have been proven to have an effect of the course of hair loss.
There are only two clinically proven hair loss treatments that have been medically approved and licenced to help prevent and reverse hair loss. If prescribed at the optimum dose to suit the individual, and used and combined correctly, most users will experience stabilisation of loss and hair regrowth with use of these products.
