Stimulair is a product for thinning hair. Essentially, this is a dietary supplement to help with your hair growth
problems, but they also throw in a shampoo and conditioner for you to consider with their automatic monthly deliveries. Chances are you are not as familiar with this brand, as you may be with some of the other products we review here, but remember sometimes great things come from surprising places. We decided to investigate if this was the case with Stimulair.
We were a bit surprised by what we saw when we visited the Stimulair website. We expected to find a complete website with information for us to read and so forth, yet there was very little to the website. In what appeared to be a one page sales pitch, the website basically lists the ingredients in the supplement and what they claim it can do for your hair. There was no research or information to support the claims.
Stimulair does seem to offer any options other than AUTO DELIVERY, however most customers claim not to have noticed the options. While this can be convenient for some, it requires canceling if you are unhappy. Based upon the website, contacting the company may be difficult, so make sure you get all contact info, etc before you buy.
Stimulair may not seem like an option you would choose, but there is a good bit of positive reviews on the internet about this product.
Price and Buying
Stimulair Reviews have shown that this product sells for $74.95 for all three products on AUTO DELIVERY. If you prefer to purchase the products as a one time purchase, the price is $105.85. These prices are a bit steep for the only active ingredients being contained in a supplement, rather than a topical scalp treatment, but overall they are competitive within the marketplace.

In a Nut Shell
Look there are plenty of “warnings” or concerns about this product / website, which may cause you to avoid this product. There are also a good number of positive reviews and testimonials that would cause you to think it may be worth the chance. In the long run, only you can decide what is right for you.
In our opinion, this is a decent product with short sighted buying options that lead to complaints about billing. While dietary supplements can help with hair growth, they are not typically used alone, instead being included in a regimen including serums and lotions, not just thickening conditioners. Supplements have not been proven to be as effective as topical scalp treatments.
