Activance VS Minoxidil

Most of the people from what i know first start with Minoxidil treatment the hair growth cure and after some months or years change the daily routine with other hair loss product.

Recently I discovered Activance Hair Growth line and i am very curious if somebody who use in past Minoxidil and after Activance or  vice versa, can tell us about the results, side effects etc.

The Activance story begins in Europe more than 50 years ago. After World War II, when infectious diseases plagued the continent, supplements containing the health-boosting nutrient Rhodanide were given to humans and livestock in order to prevent illnesses from spreading. Unexpectedly, as scientists monitored the effects of the supplement on sheep and mink, they started to notice significant changes to the animals’ coats, including increased wool production, quality and shine.

I made some research on internet and i find a article not so good about Activance.

Sam Cohen of IHRB has been telling clients and the Department of Fair Trading that he has been selling Activance. This is a product whose claims have been Sanctioned by the Complaints Resolution Panel. After the Health Care Complaints Commission issued Mr Sam Cohen with a Prohibition Order, telling him that he is prohibited from supplying or selling any medical or scheduled medications or poisons, Mr Cohen has been telling the Authorities and his clients that he has stopped selling Minoxidil, and instead, he is selling Activance. Of all the products in the world, why did Mr Cohen decide to sell Activance at sky-high rip-off prices? Perhaps it’s because Activance had claimed that it could grow hair. Sadly, these claims are unverified, and the Complaints Resolution Panel has issued Sanctions to the makers of Activance.

  1. I have used activance for 6 months along with minoxidil. I would consider it a conditioning and scalp cleanser. It seemed to reduce shedding and make hair more managable. Thicken it up abit too.
    I definitely do not think its a replacement for minox. I wish it was cheaper. The activance plus is 65aud and the practioners formula (50% stronger) is 85aud. I feel like my hair has become dependent on it for moisture. I havent used it for 3 weeks and my hair is so dry and falling alot

  2. I have been using Activance for 5 months, I hadn’t noticed much difference after 3 months so started Minoxidil 2 months ago in conjunction with Activance. The cost is also an issue for me, I feel like is a good scalp cleanser but my hair is looking oily by the 2nd day, I try to limit washing to every 2nd day as I was going though the 200ml bottles too quickly. I’m yet to see much result from the Minoxidil but will wait until the 4-6 month mark before I stop using it,
