All Things Hair Team | 14 August 2017

We’ve listed our top hair growing shampoo picks and tips that help you get longer hair, faster.

You went and got that new hot bob you’d recently seen on Bella Hadid. It was fun showing off your new ‘do the first week; but by the second, you were beginning to think it wasn’t such a good idea. A few more days later and you’re totally regretting you ever chopped off your long, luscious hair and wishing you could have that length back, ASAP.  

We ladies have been there, done that, at least once in our lives. But sitting there, wishing for your hair to grow overnight won’t do you any good. A great hair growing shampoo will. We found some of the best products that speed things up.

There are the hair growing shampoos you need

If you want your hair long, you have to make sure it’s strong, too. You don’t want your strands to keep breaking and getting damaged, because then you’d have to get them trimmed more often, and it would take you longer to get the length you’re trying to achieve. So if you’re looking to grow out your hair, you need at least one of these products in your life.


Sunsilk Strong & Long Shampoo

Sunsilk Strong & Long Shampoo is specifically formulated with ingredients that stimulate hair growth, like biotin, which is a nutrient that contributes to the production of healthy hair and encourages hair growth.



TRESemmé Platinum Strength Shampoo

1. Get a dry scalp massage

Science has proven that head massages help stimulate the flow of blood in the scalp, which encourages quicker dissemination of nutrients to the follicles of the hair.

2. Or a wet one

Massage your scalp every time you shower. Avoid using your nails and gently work your fingertips — starting close to the nape of the neck, up towards the hairline. Like the dry scalp massage, the wet version also encourages the even spread of nutrients to your tresses.

3. Take vitamins.

Antioxidants containing vitamins, along with derivatives that include vitamin B, can help boost hair strength. Supplements like biotin, which can easily be found in many local pharmacies and health food stores, are also good for promoting nail and hair growth.

4. Use heat protective products.

Too much heat can fry your hair! Avoid causing damage to your tresses by applying heat protective products before using your hair dryer or straightener.
