Follinique Hair Growth Treatment: Is it a Scam? (Proof!)

Y’all know I’m all about the hair (fake hair, of course), but have you heard about Follinique hair growth treatment?

Hair growth treatments sometimes pique my interest because, you just never know, right?

If I can regrow some of my hair, then I’m all for it. After all, the longer I keep my hair the longer I can wear my toppers.

I’ve never heard of this company, but thanks to some of my lovely eagle-eyed readers, I heard about these AMAZING before and after photos from a hair growth treatment company called Follinique.

Follinique Hair Growth Treatment: The Promise

Follinique hair growth treatment promises to regrow hair and stop hair fall with a 2% minoxidil solution, and you can see results in as early as two months. It also strengthens hair follicles.

It’s like Rogaine or other minoxidil treatments in that you apply the solution twice daily to the top of your head and allow to dry. Then go about your day.

This hair treatment solution also promises to keep your hair lustrous and restore elasticity. Whatever that means.

Sounds great, right?

Follinique Reviews with Before and After photos: Does it work?

I mean, check out this fabulous before and after pic of this lucky gal who regrew all of her hair using Follinique:

Follinique Hair Growth treatment

This company labels me as “Christine”, who regrew all of her hair using Follinique hair growth treatment. I’m 43 years old and a teacher who was “scaring off the school children” with her thinning hair. I found this hair product, won the hair growth treatment lottery, and in a matter of weeks regrew all of my hair.

Amazing!

I contacted them about this heinous review by calling the number on their website, and was put through to a call center that apparently services multiple products.

I spoke with several well-trained and compassionate employees (you sense the sarcasm, I hope?) over the course of several days.

One hung up on me.

Another said their manager would call me back (never happened).

Yet another said they have no proof that those images aren’t mine (huh?).

All said that no supervisor was on duty.

All of them were complete jerks. Truly, the least caring people I have come across in a long time.

I’m aware many call center employees really have no affiliation with the company, and I wouldn’t be surprised if those people knew anything about Follinique (in fact, one of them asked me what product I was even referring to). It did sound like a large customer service center as I could hear many employees talking to customers in the background.

Everyone I spoke to spoke perfect English.

I made a video about my experience with Follinique and their bogus hair growth treatment. I hope you’ll watch and consider sharing in any way that’s possible.

I absolutely despise that they are using my before and after pictures (of me wearing Tressmerize human hair, by the way) to dupe desperate women into buying a hair growth treatment that likely will not give results.

It’s really just shameful.

And for those of you wondering how to prevent this, 99% of my pics on my blog have watermarks with my blog name. But, usually I place them out of the way so that you can focus on the photo. Maybe I need to rethink this practice.

I’m hoping that by writing this blog post and doing a video about this company that it might be found in Google search results for women researching hair loss treatments or real Follinique reviews . There are several Follinique reviews out there (mainly videos) that I have not watched, but I do hope that those doing their research will find out what this company did and quickly reconsider spending up to $60 per month on a treatment that doesn’t work.

Because, if it worked, their website would have REAL before and after photos (their website currently has none). They would also have plenty of real women to use in their advertisements.

UGH!

What do you think about what they did/what they are doing? What action do you think I should take, if any?

If they were using my photos on their website, I’d have a clear course of action. But, because they are using them in their ads, it gets fuzzy.

Note: I may write a few follow up posts about this bogus hair regrowth treatment, but likely won’t email them out. I may also set the “publish” date a few weeks back so they don’t appear at the top of my site (because how many posts does one want to read about Follinique, really?). The goal of any of these subsequent posts is Google domination. 🙂

Oh, and if anyone wants to read more about the product I’m wearing in the “after” shot, you can read more about Tressmerize human hair in my post “Tressmerize: Gorgeous Human Hair Extensions + Topper“.

  1. My name is Virginia I ordered ordered the trial sample and end up getting charged $118 for three items which I only ordered one out for 495 I tried to cancel but cannot find a number to call and cancel my order I just keep sending that stuff back saying return to sender and cancel they keep sending me stuff out and still taking out of my account

  2. Don’t do business with this company. They are frauds and cheats. I saw on their website that a free sample was being offered. Since I wanted to try the sample, I ordered it. The charge was $4.99 that I thought was shipping cost. I gave my card number and was told to proceed to check out. I did and check out showed I had ordered several items for a total of $61. I immediately called to cancel my order and talked to a woman who said her computer wasn’t working properly and gave me another number to call that was disconnected. Called the first number again. I called that number 5 times and was hung up on three times. Finally got to talk to someone who said he would cancel the order and refund the money. He first said the refund would take 7 to 10 business days and at another point said it would take 7 to 15 days. We’ll see. The customer service representatives are rude and poorly trained. The company is fradulent and dishonest. Will not do business with them again.

  3. Don’t do business with this company! They are frauds and cheats. I wanted to try this product and their website was offering a free sample. I ordered it and then they wanted my card number so that they could bill my card. They said it would be $4.99 plus shipping. Ok, I gave the number. When the website said proceed to check out, I clicked on that and was taken to a section that showed what I had ordered and the total due. I didn’t order anything but the free sample and the total due which was $61. I was fit to be tied. Called my bank and they said the money had already been taken out of my account. I asked them to cancel the payment and they said I would need to call the company. They had a phone number so I called it. The first lady I talked to said her computer wasn’t working right and have me another number to call. That number was disconnected. Called the first number again for a total of five times and was hung up on three times. I did manage to talk to someone who cancelled my order and said I would get a refund. He said the refund would take 5 to 7 business days and at another point said the refund would take 7 to 15 days. He said he had requested the refund. We’ll see. Don’t do business with this company. The customer service is extremely poor and the reps are rude, plus they are thieves.

    • Thank you! Someone else mentioned they saw my stuff on there but didn’t provide a link and I could never find it. Kinda makes you wonder how legit a company is if they are passing stuff off that’s not their own, huh?? If you ever see my stuff out there, please send me a link, people. 🙂

      Thank you, Amanda!
