Vanarex is a complete hair re-growth method with an FDA-approved topical solution that’s clinically proven to start regrowing your hair in as little as 60 days.
All Vanarex requires is a few minutes during your normal daily routine, and it can also help thicken the appearance of your existing hair, while helping to prevent future hair loss. This way, you can “start feeling good about yourself again.”
Look, I know that losing hair is tough. After all, more than half of us will experience male pattern baldness once we reach the age of 50! But does this necessarily mean you should go throwing your money at every new hair loss system that comes around? And is Vanarex any different than all the rest?
Let’s get your questions answered by discussing what causes hair loss in men.
What Causes Men To Go Bald?
If you’re looking for an in-depth explanation of what causes hair loss (whether in men or women), a great place to start would be How To Choose a Hair Loss Product, Even If You Don’t Know What To Do. But I know you’re busy, so let’s quickly sum everything up.
Hair loss can be caused by a variety of factors, such as vitamin deficiencies, excessive stress, and even some medications. But 95% of hair loss in men is caused by something known as androgenic alopecia, or male pattern baldness.
Here, a sex steroid known as dihydrotestosterone (DHT) “attacks” hair follicles—specifically in the front and crown areas of the scalp—causing them to produce increasingly thinner hair. And after enough time has passed, they’ll stop producing hair altogether.
Now, the next logical question is: “Are any of Vanarex’s ingredients effective for interrupting this process?” We’ll get to that, but we first need to know what’s in the system.
Vanarex Complete Method: Products, Ingredients, & Efficacy
Vanarex’s Complete Method consists of three different products:
Hair Regrowth Treatment
Each 6 fl oz. bottle of Hair Regrowth Treatment contains FDA-approved 5% minoxidil, which has been clinically proven to “regrow denser, thicker hair and reduce additional hair loss.” How long will this take? According to the company, you could experience results in as little as 60 days.
Remember how we talked about DHT’s role in the balding process above? Well, Vanarex Vitacaps is an herbal nutritional supplement with saw palmetto that inhibits DHT from attacking your follicles, while also promoting hair growth.
Volume-MAX Thickening Shampoo
When combined with Volume-Max conditioner, the natural ingredients like honey and sweet almond oil will “promote thicker, fuller looking hair.”
How Effective Are These Ingredients?
Minoxidil is an extraordinarily popular topical hair loss ingredient, perhaps made most famous as a part of the Rogaine product line. But the truth is that you’ll find it in hundreds (perhaps even thousands) of other products, like drugstore brand systems, and even in several of the systems we’ve reviewed in the past, such as FolliPlex, Scalp Med, and Viviscal.
Minoxidil generally comes in either 2% or 5% strengths, and is most effective for stopping hair loss and regrowing hair on the crown. Some users might also experience these benefits on the front of the scalp (such as where hairline receding occurs), although it’s often much less effective in this region.
The other thing to consider is that, if applied regularly, minoxidil can start losing its effectiveness after about 2 years, so don’t expect it to be a permanent option.
What about Vanarex’s Vitacaps? The company doesn’t think it’s important to provide a product label, so the only ingredient we know about is saw palmetto. And unfortunately, there isn’t enough clinical evidence showing that it can inhibit DHT (like the manufacturer claims) or provide any other hair loss benefits.

Should You Consider Vanarex An Effective Hair Loss Solution?
Over the years, we’ve reviewed hundreds of products here at HighYa, and have read feedback from tens of thousands of readers. And in that time, we’ve learned that the #1 factor for product satisfaction is your expectations.
With this in mind, it’s important that you keep your expectations realistic when it comes to Vanarex’s products. Do you think you’ll go from being completely bald to having a full head of luscious hair in just a couple months? If so, you’re bound to be disappointed.
On the other hand, do you think you might have some hair pop up where it was lost before, and/or some mild thickening? In this case, you might be pleased with your results.
Another factor to consider is value. Considering that you can purchase minoxidil-containing treatments at just about any retailer with a hair section (especially ones that have a track record with customers, unlike Vanarex), and that many of these are less expensive, it might be in your best interest to explore local options before placing your Vanarex order.
Bottom line: In my opinion, I think your money would be better spent making an appointment with your physician, who might be able to recommend more mainstream products you can use in your battle against hair loss.
This isn’t to say that Vanarex is necessarily a poor choice; just not one that’ll provide you the most bang for your buck.
