#AskThePros: How Root Source™ Custom Supplements Can Unlock Longer, Fuller Hair

April 6, 2021

1 Min read

Welcome back to #AskThePros, where The Pros—your support team of custom haircare experts—break down our biggest customer questions. In this installment we’re introducing Root Source™, our customized supplement system that delivers clinically-proven results. Whether you’re dreaming of faster hair growth or you’re at wit’s end with hair shedding, read on to see why Root Source™ deserves a spot in your daily routine.

How is Root Source™ different from other supplements?

Just like its Prose haircare counterparts, Root Source™ caters to your unique needs to help unlock your best hair yet. Our extensive consultation now captures even more data than ever before—from your dietary habits to any scalp conditions, we’ll ask all the right questions to get to your customized blend.

Another key factor is what goes into Root Source™, and what stays out. Root Source™ is mainly plant based, relying on potent naturals rather than drug ingredients that have stirred up controversy in the past and can come with a host of unwanted additives. You’ll see the proof in your ingredient list, which can always be accessed in your cart before checkout. 

And if you’ve scoured through endless ingredient lists only to be disappointed, rest assured that all Root Source™ formulas are free of the following: soy, nuts, GMOs, hormone disruptors, and synthetic fillers. As with all Prose products, Root Source™ is vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free through the use of gluten-free wheat extract (who knew?).

Two additional no-go’s are artificial flavors and coloring. If the actives in your oil capsule look a bit cloudy or separated, it’s no cause for alarm. This is totally natural, and has no impact on the capsules’ freshness or potency.

Why are there two separate capsules? Do I have to take both?

Our chemists designed Root Source™ as a holistic system for maximum efficacy, which is why it’s only available as a two-capsule set. As we know, healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp. Capsule 1 lays the foundation with a customized blend of scalp-balancing active ingredients. From sensitivity to dryness, oiliness to harsh pollutants, this powder capsule targets whatever your scalp is up against.

Capsule 2 contains our proprietary PureCatalyst™ complex. It earns its namesake thanks to a powerhouse trio of millet, gluten-free wheat oil, and coriander oil—ingredients that sound safe enough to sit in your kitchen cabinet, and are also clinically proven to deliver results. This oil capsule promotes faster hair growth by stimulating the hair bulb, and decreases shedding by keeping roots firmly anchored*.

Let’s talk results—what can I expect, and how long will it take?

First things first: results may vary, and patience and consistency are key. If you’ll excuse the metaphor, you wouldn’t water a plant and expect it to grow overnight, right? But there are a few timelines to keep in mind and get excited about.

Month 1

Your scalp should feel more balanced; again, we’re laying a promising foundation. As an added plus, you may notice your nails growing faster and stronger. 

Month 2 

This is when your hair should start feeling softer, shinier, and smoother. 

Month 3

Start taking a closer look in the mirror as you may spot baby hairs forming. (Not to be mistaken for breakage, these baby hairs will grow around the hairline and should be of similar length.) 

Stay committed, and after six months you’ll continue to see the results of new hair growth*.

Ok, I’m sold—how do I purchase Root Source™? Do I need to subscribe, or can I try a one-time order?

You can place one-time orders for a 30-day supply of Root Source™, or you can subscribe at a monthly cadence. By subscribing to Root Source™, you’ll enjoy 15% off each refill along with all of our exclusive membership perks. Plus, with a monthly subscription you’ll never have to worry about missing a dose so you’ll always stay on track.

  1. Hello Prose family!
    I use my products yesterday for the first time and I didn’t use the before shampoo one because I was in a hurry and needed 10 to 15 minutes that I didn’t have. But OMG! Saw the results instantly!!! Amazing products! My hair texture automatically changed. This’ll be a great journey. I can see it!!! Sooo happy already! Thank you Prose♥️

  2. I still have not received my vitamins. Placed my order weeks ago. I have received my other products. What do I need to do?

  3. Hello Team
    This is just the beginning of week 2 for me but my scalp is so much more soothed than ever before!
    No more itchy feelings or sore spots that used to be a usual occurrence

    1. Hi Shirley, we’re so glad to hear this! Thanks for sharing your experience with us.

  4. Just started on them this week, but I was disappointed to see maltodextrin and carrageenan were ingredients used for these, not sure I’ll continue with them. Loving the hair mask, shampoo and conditioner 🙂
