Having long, luscious hair is a lot harder than it appears. Since we do so many things to damage our poor locks and not much to try and repair it, achieving healthy, long hair may not be as easy as you would think. If you are trying to grow your hair out this summer, here are some hair products to help your self-proclaimed Hair Growth Journey.
1. Olaplex No. 3 and No. 0
Olapex is the Holy Grail of hair products and it’s no secret why. This stuff really saves your hair by focusing on bonding those broken pieces together. I used to dye my hair platinum blonde, so the bleach would cause intense breakage and I could never grow it because it was constantly dead and in need of tons of moisture. Enter Olaplex. There is a whole line of hair products- No. 0 and No. 3 for a pre-shower mask, No. 4 and 5 for shampoo and conditioner, No. 6 and 7 as leave-in treatments and finally a new No. 8 moisture mask. These hair products will give you instant results, making your hair shinier, bouncier and overall will repair the damage you’ve done. No. 3 and No. 0 are technically supposed to be used together- applying No. 0 to dry hair in sections, then leaving it on for 10 minutes before applying No. 3 on top of that. After 10 more minutes, you shower (shampoo and all) and then blowdry your hair. The results from these hair products are insane.
2. Vegamour GRO Hair Serum
If you have issues with your hair thinning or falling out, this is the hair product for you. Vegamour prides itself in not using any harsh chemicals, carcinogens and does not have any harmful side effects like other hair products you may have tried. Using this serum allows for your hair to increase the appearance of density by almost 52% and reduces signs of shedding by up to 76%, which basically means this product works miracles. It contains mung bean, curcumin, and red clover, which gives your hair the much-needed vitamins and minerals to begin healing and growing. Losing hair can be because of many factors such as stress or vitamin deficiencies, but this product is a cult favorite to turn things around for you!
3. Marc Anthony Grow Long Caffeine Ginseng Rapid Grow Leave-In
Finally, hair products that both work and don’t break the bank. At only around $5, this is the perfect hair product for those who use minimal hair products. All you have to do with this one is spray evenly throughout your hair and comb through it after you shower. The rest, as they say, is history. Marc Anthony has a whole line of products sold at Ulta dedicated to growing your hair long, and they all have absolute rave reviews. Most people who use it say it does wonders for those struggling with hair loss. Other customers say that it gives their hair a fuller, shinier look that most hair products fall short of. The best part about it? It smells amazing.
4. Fable & Mane HoliRoot Pre-wash Hair Treatment Oil
Now talk about a cult favorite- this pre-wash hair treatment oil. This is one of the most celebrated hair products on the internet only available at Sephora or online. The product contains ashwagandha, which is what is going to give you healthier, fuller hair. A good trick for this hair oil is to put a little on your scalp and on your ends overnight and then wash your hair as normal in the morning. It’s super lightweight, so you don’t have to worry about excessive buildup occurring or a greasy look. It also smells incredible and leaves your hair immediately looking shinier and more voluminous. I don’t know how much more you could possibly want!
5. HERS Hair Regrowth Treatment for Women
Hers has a full line of hair products dedicated to regrowing hair in places that you thought were a lost cause. Women across the country rave about how this treatment process allowed for growth where follicles had seemingly stopped growing and even reported more hair follicles popping up all over their scalp. It gives off the appearance of fuller, healthier hair over the course of a few months if used religiously. The key to using these hair products is that you have to stick with them, you won’t see results overnight. However, don’t let that discourage you from using it. If you keep at it for months or even just a few weeks, you’re guaranteed to start getting the results you have been working towards.
6. Curlsmith Ultimate Lengths 30-Day Therapy
I was super intrigued by hair products that are taken orally, aka capsules that are supposed to literally grow your hair from within. This capsule is a blend of superfoods and nutrients such as biotin and goji berry that will restore the bonds within your scalp, strengthen your existing hair and nourish the scalp to induce hair growth. It’s quite self-explanatory, take daily for a month straight and see how great your hair becomes. From experience, taking pictures of your natural hair weekly while doing treatments like these can really help you evaluate your progress so you can really see the magic. The best part about these hair products is that they don’t contain any of the harmful chemicals that can be hidden in products like GMOs, preservatives, etc.
7. Prose Custom Pre-Shampoo Hair Mask
Saving the coolest of hair products for last…a custom hair mask built especially for your needs. With products like jojoba oil, oat oil, mango butter, and castor oil, Prose advertises a product just for you and your hair. Use this as a pre-shower mask because your hair is more accepting of it at that time. Did I mention that its formula is catered toward your needs? Well, it is and you’ll be obsessed.
