Despite the old wives tails that brushing your hair 100 times a day will help it grow, scientists have often side said that there is no way of rushing nature.
But F.A.S.T Shampoo and Conditioner promises to help your hair grow up to 99% faster than normal.
Created by Nisim International, a Canadian innovator in hair care technology, F.A.S.T(Fortified Amino Scalp Therapy) is a special blend of natural herbs and essential amino acids which provides the basis for quick healthy hair growth.
By using F.A.S.T every day for 1 month the developers say “you will feed your hair with the essential nutrients needed to make hair grow. After 1 month of daily use, you should notice accelerated growth: longer, more healthy hair”.
In Canada it proved so popular that it sold out within 24 hours of its launch, while there was a waiting list of 5,000 ahead of launch here in the UK.
So I put it to the test.
The first thing I noticed was that both products had a lovely fresh, clean smell – no perfume here. There were also none of the additives which make the shampoo really froth up but don’t be tempted to use any more because the end result is just as effective.
Both products also act as clarifiers – which is great if like mean you regularly add products to your hair. The shampoo and then conditioner cleanse all dirt and residue left by previous products, which leaves your hair and scalp a “healthy environment for hair growth”.
So I could tell exactly how quickly my hair was growing I started using it immediately after having my roots done. Not the wisest idea if it did work because it would mean having to have it done again very quickly but it would be easier to judge.
According to their research 50% of the subjects in the study had increased rate of hair growth after 42 day, but that figure doubled after 84 days.
I have to admit I didn’t notice a dramatic difference with the growth but I did notice my hair felt stronger, thicker and looked brighter – down largely to the fact that all other products were removed.
But when I had my roots done again I noticed regrowth after less than a week, something I had not done before. It wasn’t very obvious but I could certainly see the difference.
This growth has continued and I would say I am about a week and a half ahead of where I normally am when it comes to needing a trip to the hairdressers.
So it might not be a fabulous new miracle product which will give you long flowing locks in a few weeks FAST does definitely increase growth – maybe if I was to couple this with brushing my hair everyday I could look like Rapunzel in no time.
