    Hi Jen. When I first heard of moringa capsules, it was a month ago, from my sister-in law. She bought me these capsules because I had hair loss problem. After I gave birth to my daughter 2yrs ago, I started loosing my hair excessively. I sought for advice and help from friends. I even went to see the dermatologist. She prescribed me pills (nevaquine) and lotion which helped with healing my scalp as I had inflammation. The hair loss stopped but hair regrowth appeared to be happening very slowly. I started using moringa capsules last month but I can confidently say I see very positive results. Each and every week I can see a huge difference in my hair growth. My hairline is coming back and I’m starting to feel confindent again. Thanks to my brother’s wife for buying these capsules.

    • Hi Kido, I am so happy that Moringa worked on your hair. I just love this plant. It is amazing. Thanks for your comment.
