This is the strangest product to pass through Beaut.ie HQ in a while. With the exception of those underarm eye patches. That was a strange week...
FAST shampoo and conditioner apparently sold out even before release in its native Canada. It claims to rapidly increase hair growth with daily use. A test group of 1000 men and women trialled the product, and an average increase in the rate of growth of 17% was reported. They claim that the longer you use the product, the greater the increase in the rate of growth.
FAST are claiming this product will stimulate the follicles and give you two inches of hair growth per month, rather than the average 1 inch of growth.
This is tempting. I've grown my hair out from pixie short several times, and any product which will reduce those 'in between' growth periods (where my hair made me look like a male cast member from Footloose) is something I definitely would have considered buying.
I wish I wasn't always such a cynic. I mean, I'd love to believe that this works, but I'm confuddled as to how it could. Unless it nourishes hair to prevent breakage? But even that wouldn't make hair look longer, only thicker.
I've used these products a couple of times, and they lather and condition nicely. Their purpose is growth, though. You're not spending €32.99 on something that 'lathers nicely'.
I'm going to give these a longer trial before giving a verdict on the growth rate. In the meantime, we thought you might like to know that this product has landed on our shores. You know, just in case you're sporting a bit of 'Kevin Bacon in Footloose' hair yourself...
