Journey Hair Balance is the first and only product that addresses heartbreaking Bariatric Hair Loss – a nutrient boost for hair, skin and nails that contains a proprietary formula of vitamins and botanically derived components that work together to optimize healthy growth. 

“I had significant hair loss after my bariatric surgery and it never grew back. After suffering with thin hair for years, I began taking Hair Balance. My hair has grown back and is lovely again. Thank you for this wonderful product.” – Polly Saunders

“I am 12 years out and have tried every bariatric vitamin and protein shake on the market and the way Journey 3+3’s & Inspire make me feel and the way Hair Balance has made my hair grow, I wouldn’t care if I had to drive to Timbuktu to get them myself.” – Nikki Quinn


Hair Balance caps combine the power of MSN – a natural ingredient that works to lengthen and increase natural hair growth patterns – with Zinc, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid and Horsetail Silica to provide a potent nutritional boost that supports not only faster growing hair but stronger nails and softer skin.


“When we first have bariatric surgery the excitement of weight loss turns to horror when our hair starts falling out by the handful! Surgical stress coupled with malnutrition interrupts the hair cycle – the body adjusts by sending essential protein and nutrients elsewhere. While the large initial fall out cannot be prevented, we can influence how fast our hair grows back by having important nutrients covered. Telling someone to get a short haircut or that no one will notice is insulting! I knew there had to be help and we developed this product to help bariatric patients. I know how you feel – I had terrible hair loss for nearly two years! This product is amazing and post ops are thankful for the results.” – Susan Maria Leach, BariatricEating founder, author Before & After, gastric bypass 2001

Hair Balance Nutrient Boost for Hair Skin & Nails Bariatric Formula

  • Biotin & ‘B’ Vitamin Super Cocktail
  • Supports Faster Growth & Reduced Hair Shedding
  • Noticeably increases growth of Nails; in as little as 7 to 10 days
  • Albion® specialized minerals ensure that they are effectively absorbed by the body
  • Contains Zinc for growth, Biotin for strength & shine, & MSM for collagen & keratin

The normal hair cycle produces growth of about six inches a year for two to six years. A healthy hair follicle produces a strong, thick, colored hair. In a normal scalp, about ninety percent of the hairs are in this stage at any given time. After a ninety-day resting cycle, new hair replaces the old ones which have been shed. In those suffering from hair loss, a change in growth phase is thought to occur; as cycles become shorter and resting cycles become more frequent.

Eventually almost all of us will experience hair loss in our life time when the balance in growth cycle is interrupted by stress or deficiency. It is thought that extended periods of high stress can cause or contribute to hair loss, as stress may increase a constriction of the blood supply to the scalp. After surgery, some individuals may experience either temporary or long term hair loss. Poor diet and nutrition also contribute to hair loss.

These potent supplements are made exclusively with Albion® minerals and have received Albion’s Gold Medallion®, which recognizes products for nutritional excellence. Hair Balance contains elements that work together decrease hair loss and optimize healthy regrowth. To further enhance growth make sure your diet has an abundant source of protein.

Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, adults take 2 capsules, twice daily, preferably with food or as recommended by a health professional.

    I love Journey Essentials! Easy to swallow capsules make taking them a breeze. I was getting frizzy hair and nothing would help topically so I decided to add a supplement and tried Journey Hair Balance. It cleared up and went away in a matter of days when nothing else would help. I”m 19mo post op and have experienced amazing hair growth and well has good hair health. I love this supplement and will never go without it again!

    My hair was falling out by the brushful. I was willing to try Journey Essentials Hair Balance capsules, but I thought the descriptions of what it could do was just hype. Well, to my pleasant surprise, my hair stopped falling out and new hair has already started to come in after just a few weeks. I am astonished at how fast it worked.

    I had a vertical sleeve gastrectomy in December 2011 and noticed a couple of months later that I was losing hair. LOTS of it! Did some research and decided to give these a try. A month into it and I can see all this dark ”baby” hair coming in. It is filling in the little bald patches I have been getting as well as along my hairline and just plain in general. Satisfied with results to date and looking forward to having a full head of healthy hair soon! Thank you.

    I ordered my Hair Balance at 10am on Monday, got shipping confirmation at noon and UPS delivered on Wednesday. On Monday, I remember looking at my hands while driving and wondering how my manicure got so grown out and that I must have missed my appointment. I just put Hair Balance and Extreme Smoothies on autoship so I have them every month. Thank you!

    I am so happy that I ordered the Journey capsules for my hair. I hit my 3rd month out of bariatric sugery and started losing my hair rapidly! After taking these for only a week it has slowed down my hair loss! I wish I would have taken these when my hair loss started!!! You have to try it if you are losing your hair due to bariatric surgery!!!

I”ve been taking Journey Hair Balance for 7 months and my hair is back and looking great. Everyone notices and now says how healthy and great I look. I cannot be without my Journey Hair Balance. Don”t hestiate to buy these vitamins because they are awesome for hair growth!!!!!

    This is my 2nd botlle that I have ordered. I started taking them right away after surgery and have not lost any hair. I wanted to share with you though, a strange (but nice ) thing —My eyelashes which were pretty scanty even before surgery, have grown like crazy. I look like I have eyelash extensions!! Certainly not complaining!! I feel that the Hair Balance has kept me from losing my hair. THANKS

    This is a really good product. I experienced hair loss after surgery and this is really helping me regrow my hair and it is no longer falling out in clumps.

    These are worth every cent. After bariatric surgery I lost about 2/3 of my hair. Luckily I had a lot of pretty thick hair. I attribute the use of these supplement daily to my return to thick plentiful hair. It”s back to normal. I continue to take these supplements because they also help my skin and nails. Love it!

    I bought these to primarily help me stop loosing hair. I”ve only been taking them for maybe 2 or 3 weeks and I see no difference yet.

    This product is wonderful. I have even given it to new moms that are losing their hair. It works I love it.

    This really has made a difference both in my hair and my nails! I don”t even have to use conditioner in the summer anymore and my nails don”t chip anymore!

    Believe it or not, I have noticed a remarkable difference in the loss of hair since using this product. The loss has been slowly but steadily improving. Seems like a good thing to me.

    I had hair loss from both a serious illness in 2003 and then bariatric surgery 5 years ago. I tried all kinds of products with very little change. I wore my hair very short after surgery because of the hair loss, but after 6 months of using Journey, I noticed the change. I have been using the product for over a year and I can”t believe how fast my hair and nails have grown.

    I am amazed at the effectiveness of these capsules. I hoped they would help my thinning hair at least a little; but,not only has my hair noticeably improved, but my formerly thin brittle nails are also stronger. I will continue to take the capsules and recommend them to anyone else who has age-related thinning hair!

    I started using this product a week ago. Hoping it will help with my hair loss and nails. I have the lap band so the pill is difficult for me to swallow so I pour it in my coffee in the morning. It does not dissolve but it does not change the taste of the coffee which is good. Will come back and review them in a few weeks.

    Due to lack of protein, my hair started falling out. Once I started Hair Balance it has topped falling out and seem to have more body.

    I”ve been on Journey Hair balance for about 5 months now. I haven”t noticed a change or improvement in my hair thickness or skin quality at all. I do not recommend.

    I had very thin hair, even before Bariatric Surgery, got worse after that. This product is bringing back my hair slowly but surely, and my nails are growing like weeds. I am on my second bottle and only take two a day. My nails are so long and beautiful and strong that people ask me what salon I go to, then I tell them about your wonderful product.

    I had significant hair loss after my Roux-N-Y and it never grew back. After suffering with thin hair for years, I began these supplements. My hair is grown back and is lovely again. Thank you for finding this wonderful product.

    I have been using this product for a month, watching and waiting for some improvement with my hair loss. I think a see a slight improvement, but I will continue taking this product to see if the improvement continues.

    I lost a great deal of weight through bariatric surgery 3 years ago. However, I also lost hair and now my hair is thin though I keep it short which helps to minimize the thinness. I’ve been taking Hair Balance for several months but note that I’m supposed to take 4 capsules a day and have only taken 2. It’s partly expense. I see an improvement and my hair stylist thinks so too but it is very hard to tell. I’ll try increasing the dose and see if that works. My doctor was thrilled with what is in the formula; all the right things for hair growth and health.

    I really like getting everything I need out of 1 bottle.

    I recently purchased this product, so I’m still watching what affects I see. So far, I have noticed a drastic reduction on hair loss. It’s nice to wash my hair and see only a couple of strands vs. the hair loss I was experiencing.

    So far, I am happy with this product. I can see my hair thickening already

    First, I want to say I do not review products, as a general rule. But this one deserves my time and praise. I have been using this product- consistently- as directed for about 4 months now. I cannot tell you how excited I am about the results that I and my beautican have noticed. As well as, my friends and family. My hair has not only become thicker but it has more volume and body. And my nails- what can I say but “WOW”! No longer do I have brittle, thin nails. The same beautican does my nails that does my hair. She is amazed in the difference. I’m having to get a manicure and a hair cut ever 2 weeks now. I want to caution you that you will not see immediate results but if you will continue to take the product, as directed, you will! I am convinced of that.

    I LOVE Journey Hair Balance! I am one who depends on reviews but I am not good at writing them but I love this product so much that I had to write and give hope to those who have had the problem of thinning hair after weight loss surgery. I used to have very thick hair and now my entire scalp is exposed. It is pretty devastating. I took this supplement, not as regularly as I should have, but it still helped my hair thicken and stop falling out very quickly. I was having new hair growth and doing very well and then the economy went bad and we were about to lose our home. I didn’t buy more because I couldn’t afford anything extra at the time and my hair went back to very thin again over time. Now I am back on it and taking it faithfully. My hair dresser noticed a difference after the first month. My nails grow faster and are stronger, my eyelashes were very short and sparse and they are much longer and filled in now. One thing I didn’t consider is my skin and one day I was looking in the mirror and I looked at my face and my skin looked beautiful and then I remembered it was probably the vitamins. Thank you so much for Hair Balance and for all the other wonderful things you offer on your website!!

    I have been using these vitamins for a month. I was introduced to this product through my aunt who recently had Bariatric surgery. Her hair has been the healthiest I’ve seen my entire 33 years of life! I recently had a child whom threw my hormones out of whack resulting in massive hair loss where I had hair down to my bottom but had to cut it in an asymmetrical bob, as well as having paper thin nails. Just after a month my hair dresser, nail technician, family,friends, etc has noticed a difference. However, the main thing is I have recognized the growth, strength, thickness and improved quality which has done wonders for building my esteem back.

    Recommended for massive hair loss after my Gastric Bypass by my primary Physician.”L-O-V-E I-T” not only for my hair, but for my nails and skin. too.

    My hair was getting thinner, and my mother was making comments. After talking to my stylist I started on a supplement from Nioxin. After reading some things on this site I realized I needed something for my bariactric stomach. I tried these with great success for many years. I decided to see if I could find something better. I tried a nail, hair supplement from a nutrition site. My stylist tells me I’m getting a bare spot in the back, and it wasn’t filling in; we decided to go back on the Journey pills. Today she said it looks good and is growing in fine. I’m 10 years post-op, and doing well. My stylist tells her other clients about the Journey Hair Balance. It makes a difference to me.

    I started losing hair at about 3 mos post op much to my despair. I thought I had done all the right things. Used Biotin, met my protein goals … still it happened. The loss leveled off but I was left with limp, thin (really thin) hair !! I took a chance on the Journey Hair Balance and within a little over a month I noticed tons of new growth !! My hair is coming back full and healthy now and my nails grow like crazy too !! I will NEVER be without this stuff !!!
