@Roe:  Not a hair product (well, not exactly) but vitamins have really helped w/ my hair growth. My hair is really fine and I didn’t feel like it was growing at all. Multi vitamins are good, but I’ve had better luck with prenatal vitamins (biotin can also work). I started using Aveda’s Invati line (they have a shampoo, conditioner,and then a root spray) and I think it’s helping. It’s supposed to increase growth and minimize breakage. I don’t think that my hair is growing faster but I feel like areas that were thinner are growing in, and I don’t think my hair is breaking as much. My partner says that my hair doesn’t seem to be shedding as much (he HATES my pieces of hair that clog the shower). Not sure if it matters, but I  have hair that is thinning in areas (mostly due to health issue and medication). So I think if it’s helping my hair that is fine and thinning, it’d help hair that’s healthy. I also use a hair mask once a week (or less, sometimes I forget). My hairdresser says that masagign your scalp helps with growth (and the scalp spray I use twicec a day says to massage it in). She told me to really massage my scalp – be sure not to use nails – when I wash and that should also help.

@Roe:  Sorry to be the bearer of bad news…. No product will make hair grow. I suggest using a product like Nioxin to help encourage healthy folicles and suggest scalp massage 2x a day for 3/5 minutes to increase blood flow. Better blood flow will increase hair growth but please do not fall into these gimmick-y products that promise hair growth, as a cosmetologist I can assure you they will not. Take biotin supplments to help, as well as a daily multi vitamin.

@MsLobizon:  Have you tried Nioxin products? They are fabulous for shedding/thinning hair. I have issues with extreme shedding (due to thyroid condition) its really helped me.

@Mrsroup:  Tried Nioxin for over three months and no noticable differnce plus I didn’t like how it made my hair feel 🙁 I wish it had worked b/c their line of products are SO much cheaper than the Invati stuff!

@MsLobizon:  Sad, I adore my nioxin. I can not stand Aveda, all the essential oil smells make my nose stuffy.

Nothing magical, but I make sure to deep condition regularly (with Aussie’s 3-minute deep conditioner) and I took Biotin daily for a few months. If nothing else, my hair and nails felt stronger. It did grow but I don’t know how much to attribute to nature vs the supplements.

You notice it “growing” bc it isn’t breaking as much and it makes nails and hair stronger I think. I have been taking prenatals and 5000mcg of Biotin and stopped bleaching my hair so its grown alot faster than “normal”. Less heat use as well:)

For the bride-I agree with taking Biotin- that really helps. for people with hair loss issues-I use to sell hair products. Never liked Nioxin. A newer one that customers seemed to like was called DS lab. It is similiar to nioxin where it cleans the scalp and they have scalp treatments too and people had good results.
