'Hair growth sprays' - Do they really work? In my early days of losing my hair I was rather curious about this form of hair loss treatment. The first hair growth spray I came across during my days of extensive research was by a Chinese manufacturer called YUDA (pictured below). There are about three different versions of this spray, with slight alterations in the ingredients. One of which claims to have a 10% dosage of minoxidil, which even now I still find hard to believe.
I ordered them directly from China and the bottles felt awfully cheap, being prone to easy breakage. The spray was scentless and shot out of the pump really quickly, leading to an uneven coverage on the scalp, and much waste. I used YUDA Hair Growth Spray for about 5 weeks and it did absolutely nothing for my hair loss whatsoever.
I cannot say for sure, but my suspicions are that this product is a complete scam. They offer ridiculous guarantees of hair growth in a few days, which leads be to believe they can get away with this advertising because they are a Chinese manufacturer. Such claims over here in the UK would not be allowed, and the company would surely be shut down.
The interesting thing about YUDA is that it offers private label wholesale schemes which allows companies from all over the world to purchase this product with the option of selling it under a different label. I've come across 'revolutionary' sprays such as CHLP (pictured above) that contains the same ingredients and makes the same far-fetched claims as YUDA does, which leads me to believe that many of these hair growth sprays you see advertised all over the internet are nothing more than YUDA with a different label.
This brings me to Herbal H Advanced Growth Formula, that you may have heard of or seen plastered all over the place. Like I said, my suspicion is that this spray, along with any others you see of this type, is just a big scam. I haven't tried Herbal H or CHLP, but if my suspicions are correct and they are indeed a private label of YUDA, then they're lucky to get the one star I have rated it, because these products are terrible and they do not work.
If you're thinking about purchasing a hair growth spray for your hair loss, then my advice would be to steer well clear of them.

Negatives: They don't work. They are a scam.
