Strut vs Happy Head: 7 Things That Set Strut Apart

Read on

If you are ready to take the plunge into hair loss treatment to take control and help slow patterned hair loss – good for you!

Next, if you wish to go with an online company to source your hair loss treatment, you need to do a little recon to figure out their differences, pros, and cons.

To help you out, we’ve outlined some of the differences you may find or experience when using Strut (us) vs. Happy Head.

1. Strut has lower price points than Happy Head

Price may be a big reason why people decide to go with one company over another.

For a month's supply of a topical Finasteride and Minoxidil formula, Strut is priced at $59 per month, while Happy Head is priced at $79 per month.

For a month’s supply of a topical Dutasteride and Minoxidil formula, Strut is priced at $69 per month, and Happy Head is priced at $89 per month.

2. Strut does not use propylene glycol in formations

Propylene Glycol is a common ingredient in hair loss products to function as an emulsifier, preservative, and solvent. However, some people do not react will do propylene glycol, and it may cause scalp allergic or irritant reactions in some users, in addition to potentially causing scalp and hair dryness.

Propylene Glycol may be a big part of why some people find over-the-counter Minoxidil formulations to be irritating.

To help avoid these potential situations, Strut goes ahead and avoids the use of Propylene Glycol in all topical formulations altogether. While it does appear that Happy Head does use Propylene Glycol in their topical formulas.

3. Strut offers a gentle Hair Booster formula with ingredients that Happy Head does not offer

At Strut, we tend to be initiators in formulating new and innovative hair loss compounds through telemedicine services. We were the first to offer a topical Finasteride, topical Dutasteride, and now, our new topical Hair Booster formula with Latanoprost, Melatonin, Caffeine, and Biotin.

Strut’s Hair Booster does not contain hormone or DHT-modulating ingredients and can be used as an add-on treatment if you are already using Finasteride, Dutasteride, or Minoxidil. This is also a unisex formulation.

Strut is the first and currently only telemedicine service to offer a formulation of this kind, and Happy Head does not have a comparable formula.

4. Strut entered the hair loss treatment telemedicine market first

Strut has been around since early 2019 to offer hair loss treatment telemedicine services, and we consider ourselves to have been ahead of the pack for innovative compounded treatments.

Happy Head has been around since 2021.

5. Strut has multiple compounding pharmacists on the team to aid in formula development and testing

Here at Strut, we have multiple compounding pharmacists on the team to help develop, test, adjust, and advise when it comes to formula development. As a telemedicine company that offers innovative compounds, we find it indispensable to employ these compounding experts.

6. Strut sells a titanium dermaroller tool to aid in your hair loss regimen

Here at Strut, we encourage a well-rounded approach to hair loss treatments. That includes combining hair loss treatments with healthy living and, yes, maybe even some dermarolling.

Dermarolling may aid in scalp collagen production, hair follicle stimulation, enhanced blood flow, and increased topical hair product bioavailability.

We sell a titanium-needled dermaroller to use in conjunction with your topical hair loss treatments for only $11.99.

Happy Head does not currently carry a dermaroller to include in your hair loss treatment plan.

7. Strut offers liquid or gel formulations while Happy Head only offers liquid

People have strong preferences when it comes to things in their daily routines. Some users of topical hair loss treatments prefer gel formulations or liquid (solution) formulations for one reason or another.

To help give our customers more choices, Strut offers a gel or solution formulation for our topical Finasteride or topical Dutasteride medications.

Happy Head offers a liquid (solution) formulation for only.
