Crinagen is marketed as a natural topical scalp spray for both men and women who are experiencing androgenic alopecia. They also claim that their serum reduces the amount of dht within the scalp, and that it is free of alcohol and other scalp irritants. We decided to analyze the ingredients to see if they supported these claims. The product is does have a less complex formula compared to other topicals we’ve reviewed but it seems to have a good combo of ingredients. While there aren’t many hair growth stimulants, it does have ingredients that increase blood circulation in the scalp such as azelaic acid and Niacin. Zinc is also present in the formula and is known to reduce dandruff. But Crinagen’s greatest strength is the presence of saw palmetto which is known to be a very good DHT blocker. So it does have a nice list of ingredients, but could use some more hair growth stimulants in the formula.
Daily User Experience
Crinagen comes in a simple spray bottle that is somewhat large. The bottle is well designed and easy to store and carry around. Also, the spray mechanism makes it easy to apply all over the scalp without making a mess. Among the HGR team members that that tried Crinagen, there weren’t any issues with itching, scalp irritation or any major side effects. A lot of members did mention that they didn’t like the scent of the product. There were also issues with the product being sticky and causing a buildup in the scalp. Some users noted that they couldn’t go out right after using this product because it didn’t dry on time.
While the product did have its flaws in usage, it does produce some results after usage for several months in a comprehensive regimen. HGR team members with mild hair loss reported less shedding and slightly thicker hair. Results were below average for individuals in the advanced stages of hair loss.
While it does produce some decent results it does cost about $70 for a 4 ounce bottle which seems on the pricier end for a topical treatment. However 4 ounces of product is a lot more than most other topicals on the market.
Crinagen is a decent hair loss topical that is easy to apply, but has issues with build up and greasiness. Although it does produce visible results, mostly when combined with 5% minoxidil and ketoconazole shampoo. Would recommend using for at least 4 months in a comprehensive regimen to get visible results.
