REVIEW: FAST Shampoo & Conditioner

Throughout my life I’ve been through my fair share of hair cuts.

Luckily, I’m comfortable enough with both super short and fairly long hair so deciding on what style to go for never usually is an issue.

At its shortest...

But every girl always wants what they don’t have (admit it), so whenever I have all my hair chopped off, it is inevitable I want to glue it straight back on as soon as I have to style it myself because it “never looks as good as in the salon”.

I’m sure many of us have been duped into trying/buying some “miracle growth” product, be it shampoo, vitamin supplement or hair treatment, without the desired results.

Myself, well I’d just love to be just like the Brush n Grown My Little Pony I had when I was younger that only needed a quick shake of her head and her tail grew straight back  (remember? This one  (pretty sure mine was Curly Locks) – thanks for throwing out/donating my entire collection mother!)

So when the FAST Shampoo and Conditioner landed on my desk I thought, hey, why not give it a go? I’d recently had my hair cut into a fairly short bob and with a family wedding coming up a month or two later, my tresses could have done with a little help in growing long enough for an up do.

The bumph accompanying the two bottles said: “Made by Nisim International, Canada, FAST is a unique shampoo and conditioner that accelerates hair growth. As of May 2013 FAST has been permanently listed in 300 Flagship Boots Stores. The range is perfect for someone with slow-growing hair or for those who want to outgrow a bad haircut as quickly as possible. FAST is NOT for hairloss but can make hair grow up to 99% faster. Use FAST daily for 30 days to give you maximum length in minimum time.”

So use it for 30 days I did – washing my hair every other, or every two days, at least.

My hair grows relatively fast so I couldn’t really tell if the product helped or not but what it did do was thicken and improve the condition of my barnet which was a welcome improvement as I’m often told by my hairdresser that I have a lot of hair but it is quite thin so all I can guess is that the shampoo and conditioner thickened each strand – great!

All in all I liked this product, I didn’t love it though. One thing I did find was that unless I stood under the shower for about half an hour to rinse the conditioner out it left my hair quite greasy and with the feeling that I hadn’t properly washed the product out. This was a tad annoying but all in all I would recommend this product if you’re looking to add a little oomph to your hair.

Here’s the before and after pics, I’ll let you make your own mind up (sorry for the face! And the quality of the pics)
