    @pinkness27 some of my original posts include costs. Hopefully others will see your post and add prices if they post a new product.

    been reading thru this thread, pretty good read thanks @ilong
    @IDareT'sHair I just had to comment on the bamboo/silica. I drink the beautifully bamboo tea 2x a day no sweetener which offers great results to my skin and nails. I did not see added growth (been drinking the tea since July 2014) but I saw a change in the thickness in my hair. I stepped up the silica game by taking liquid concentrate silica from eidon ionic minerals and now seeing a huge difference in my hair, skin and nails. My nails are hard and grows faster than with the bamboo tea. My toenails never grew very fast but now they are. skin around my crows feet are plumped up and my overall skin is moist. Hair is still thick and feels strong and the added growth is apparent. I've had to henna my hair 2x in 6 weeks :) I've been taking the liquid silica now for eight weeks.

    I have a question for you ladies.

    Do you also take a multivitamine in addition to the HSN of your choice or, if you take an HSN, do you forego the multivitamin. Looking at some of the ingredient lists there isn't much overlap so I get where you might take both. My "problem" is that a lot of the HSN suppliments that I've looked at had a quite bit of ingredient overlap so I wasn't sure of the proper protocol. :confused:

    What say you? (I hope my question makes sense...)

    Thanks Ms. Dare :) I'm thinking about buying the phytophanere bc of your post, just wary of the biotin though.

    Hi @NJ11, I don't really take an HSN, and I do forgo the multi because I take:
    Selenium
    Vit B12
    Chlorella
    Liquid silica
    Liquid zinc
    Cod liver oil
    Vit D
    Evening Primrose
    B5
    Reconstituted powdered barley grass
    All of these vits are for overall health, but the silicas added benefit is the hair growth boost

    I've been taking country life since July. It has really helped with the shedding and my hair seems thicker. I bought 2 bottles and should start my second this week because I only take 2 daily and have missed a few days.

    @PureSilver - I'm glad to hear you are experiencing good results with the Country Life.

    I had planned to wait until I finished my current vitamin packs before I started taking Country Life, but have since changed my mind. Yesterday I took some time to compare the ingredients in Country Life to those in Nature's Bounty and decided I need to start taking the Country Life immediately.

    IMO - Country Life is far more superior than Nature's Bounty for hair growth. The strength (per serving) of the vitamins in Country Life are much higher than those in Nature's Bounty. Especially vitamins in the B family. I researched the ingredients in Nature Bounty which are not in Country Life and discovered most of them are not highly recognized as vitamins which promote hair growth, so it's not an issue with them not being in Country Life .

    I don't have them! I was rounding out the thread with supplements that I've been looking at and/or researching. You'll have to report back with your results. Can you take a pic of the ingredients and post them? The pic I copied from the site is too small @SmilingElephant

    @SmilingElephant, do they have an after taste and/or stink? Also, are you taking both pills at the same time? Or, are you taking one in the a.m. and one in the p.m.?

    No, not at all! I just hate that they are horse pills! :lol: A horse could probably even choke on em his self! :lachen:

    They are slightly coated so they're not impossible but I haven't notice any smells or after tastes.

    Damn! The Nouritress and Njoy Essentials Long N Healthy have the same exact ingredients. Except, the biotin dosage is different.

    @MileHighDiva - thank you for all of the great supplement posts.

    In terms of products having the same ingredients, that is one of the reasons I started the thread, for ingredient comparison.

    FYI - Nouritress and Njoy's both have para-Aminobenzoic acid and L-Cysteine - but Nouritress label shows it only contains 100mcg which is only 1mg and Njoy's contains 100mg. BIG DIFFERENCE.

    @SmilingElephant - good luck with the Mielle Organics. We will watch for your updates.

    @ilong, I think the Nouritress and Mielle Organics (MO) are the same, as well. However, you can't really compare, because the MO has the same ingredients listed as a proprietary blend and the exact amounts are not listed.

    The MO is at a better price point.

    @smores, how is your Nouritress challenge going?

    Also, Njoy's are time released, and don't have a coating.
