I think it will help me out a lot in the future and I am very glad that I did it so thanks for making a great kit that can help people like me with hair concerns.
I think this service is awesome. Its been months, maybe close to a year since my 1st kit and it has been the game changer to maintaining my scalp and hair better. Well worth the money.

What happens after I make a purchase?After you purchase an assessment, we'll send a hairID testing kit to your address. You’ll conduct at-home water and scalp sebum tests and send back a small sample of your hair. We will send you a link containing your hairID results within 1-2 weeks after receiving your hair sample in our Buffalo, NY lab, along with ten product recommendations.
How does the subscription work?After you receive your initial hairID report, for $4.99 each quarter (every three months), we will update your hairID profile with 10 new product recommendations. Subscribers can expect to receive fresh recommendations on January 1st, April 1st, July 1st and October 1st. You can cancel at any point.
Do I need to cut my hair?No, please don’t cut your hair sample! Simply collect hair from your brush or shower drain.
Is my DNA analyzed?The Hair Analysis Kit is designed to provide information about the physical condition of your hair. It does not involve medical diagnoses, sequencing of DNA, or the production and distribution of health-related data.
Will I receive custom hair products?No, we do not make custom products. We believe there are commercially available products that satisfy almost all hair types and needs. With your input regarding budget and hair goals, we help you find the products that meet your hairID profile and needs.
How do you choose which products to recommend?Each season we pick a few dozen most talked about products and a some drug store staples to research. Then our proprietary algorithm matches your hairID profile with the products of the season based on ingredient compatibility and other factors. As you provide us with feedback on your experience with the recommended products we adjust our recommendations for the next season accordingly.
