Was considering avacor mainly because of TV ads, I'm thankful I seen this first, thanks Dr Gordon whomever you may be and to this site. Now off to get the clippers and eliminate the rest of my problem,
Subj: Avacor doesn't work
I've used avacor for 2 months as directed and I haven't grown any hair but I did loose more hair then ever before. And my hair loss is only a bit on the front sides. My scalp is healthy, I'm not allergic on anything, no redness or any side effects except I noticed my skin pealing a bit. The bottom line is it DOESN'T WORK, please don't waste time and money buying this product cause I don't think it ever worked for anybody, sometimes when you're using something because you're using it you think is working but that's just on your head. IT DOESN'T WORK.
Subj: Can't recommend Avacor
I purchased a 6-month supply of Avacor when I was 38 years old and cannot recommend it. I used the product (tablets, hair treatment and shampoo) religiously over a 6-month timeframe and noticed only minor hair growth on the crown, everywhere else I experienced no new growth.
Subj: Stopped using Avacor
I used Avacor after about the fifth day my head started to itch like crazy and hair stated falling out. I stopped using it.
Subj: Minoxidil help with baldness?
I know you do not recommend the product but hasn't Minoxidil been shown to help with baldness?? I just got the product and am wondering if there is any chance that it will cause my hair to fall out faster? Maybe I will just use the Minoxidil that may help right?
AskDocWeb: Minoxidil may provide hair growth for a while but how much can't be predicted ahead of time. It should not make your hair fall out any faster than without it. And you can use it together with another hair loss product if you want to, such as Nisim Biofactors, a shampoo that helps promote hair growth.
Subj: No money back from Avacor
I ordered Avacor on 8/29/06, I got the shipment as promised, I read the instructions and started using the product. Within 2 to 3 applications, my scalp started breaking out, I quite using it promptly. I had to go to my Doctor to get a prescription to help me contain the rash this stuff caused. I then called Avacor and got a return certification number, and returned the product via ups on 9/11/06. I have since called Global Vision Products many times, I have been told there computer has been broken, all kinds of excuses, but as of today 2/01/07 I have not been able to get my money back. I really don't know where to go from here.
Subj: For hair re-growth
Dear Sirs, Thanks for your info. I will definitely not buy Avacor after having read your article. Is there anything you recommend for hair re-growth? Sincerely,
AskDocWeb: It depends on how much time, effort and money you want to invest in your hair. Starting with the lowest cost, we recommend Minoxidil to jump-start your hair growth. We say "jump-start" because it has a good chance of getting your hair growing again but that re-growth is not likely to last more than 48 weeks (from clinical trials). Too keep it growing use a combination of Procerin (pills) and Nisim Biofactors (shampoo to prevent hair loss). These seem to be the best products according to feedback from users.
Subj: No results
Used avacor as a result of seeing no results from using Rogaine. Avacor failed to produce any results as well.
Subj: Misleading the buying public
Yep...it's a load of horse-sh*t! I used this product as directed over 6 month period...NADA Rogaine works just as well or better and is much less. The Avacor people are misleading the buying public!
Subj: FDA approved?
This page was very useful. The only problem was I researched FDA website and thought avacor was FDA approved.
AskDocWeb: No, Avacor is not FDA approved. Only the minoxidil in it is FDA approved.
Subj: Satisfied customer
I am a female who lost a great deal of hair after having children. I have used Avacor for 6 months now, and I have more hair and there is much less coming out after every washing. It's amazing! My beautician has told me that my hair looks healthier than ever. I did not tell her what I was using at first. I love the product, but am afraid to try anything else because of the results I have had. However, it is expensive. I've tried many, many products, and this is the only one I have gotten satisfying results from. I ordered the shampoo & conditioner & love them too! They aren't as expensive & my hair isn't drying out as someone else reported. I've had dry hair in the past, but this has taken care of it. I will continue to use it. A satisfied customer from Tennessee
Subj: Used Avacor for 3 months
I used avacor last spring-summer and started noticing some tiny sores on my head. I thought it was something else and continued to use the product for about 3 months. During this time, I also developed a lump on my scalp (and had to stop using the product), that I could explain why. I have always been healthy and consider myself one of the lucky ones, except the hair loss of course. I recently saw a doctor who referred me to a surgeon. I am quite concern and would advise anyone considering using avacor to think twice.
Subj: Bad experience
My experience with Avacor was almost identical to Jerry's 2/1/07 letter except I did eventually get a refund 8 months later. Also in addition to the rash, hair fell out all over my head and I was just trying to control the beginning of hair receding at the temples does anyone know if this is permanent or will the hair that fell out return.
AskDocWeb: Hard to tell, everyone is different so there's no guarantee that it will grow back, sorry.
Subj: Hair on legs gone
My husband has been using it, he is always trying something, he hates losing his hair. He doesn't seem to be losing much on his head recently but since using this product all the hair on his legs is gone.... It looks weird.
I have purchased an herbal supplement said to regrow hair, but I have been using it for 3 months and haven't seen much improvement (my hair is still thinning and is still falling out). This product is NuHair. Have you heard of it? If you have, do you think it has serious side effects?
AskDocWeb: Sorry Jenny, we have no information on NuHair.
Subj: No money back
My hair growth never improved, and the tablets made me vomit. I called several times and asked for my money back, telling them that I could not eat the tablets, but they said that I had to finish up everything. I could not finish those tablets, and I never got my money back as they advertised. They simply would not cooperate with me. The moment I stopped using Avacor tablets, I stopped vomiting. I never got my money back.
Subj: No refund
I tried Avacor (by purchasing a full year supply) since August 2006 and nothing happened. In fact, I developed severe hair rash and lumps in my head which persist till today. My skin became extremely dry and no hair grew at all. I could not go to social functions because of the hair flakes on my head and clothes. I returned the product in Feb 16, 2007 and have yet to receive my refund of $499.
Do you have any information about Procerin, another to prevent hair loss For Men? Thanks,
AskDocWeb: Yes, quit a lot, start here.
Subj: Avacor damaged hair
I did use the avacor product expecting great results instead, I had large amounts of hair lost and when I started to use the product my hair length was just below my bra strap the product had caused such great damage and my hair just started breaking off up to my neck level. I now have to use hair extensions. If not I would look really very bad, not only because of the length of my hair but also because of the damaged hair that I now have.
Subj: Still trying to get my refund
I did not receive my product(lost in shipping) but had cancelled day after it was ordered. I am still trying to get my refund. Global Vision is the one company I'd advise everyone to stay away from! They will not return calls and just lie to you about the progress of your complaint. I have turned them over to the better business bureau and advise everyone to do the same.
