Rapunzel Challenge: FAST Haircare

Monday, 1 April 2013

It will be no surprise for you all to learn that I am completely, totally and utterly OBSESSED with having long, luscious hair and will go to great lengths (sorry couldn't resist) to achieve this.

I am constantly on the lookout for the next best miracle hair growth product as I'm bored of wearing hair extensions, as although they can look great its always a big worry that they will be revealed as soon as a gust a wind comes along...not ideal. So I've put the hair extensions to one side and emerged myself into a task like no other....The Rapunzel Challenge.

So with long hair being my end goal I put some serious research into finding hair growth products that actually work...that's when I stumbled across FAST shampoo and conditioner. With the abundance of unbelievable reviews I simply had to try it out for myself to see if the shocking claims were true, does FAST haircare really make your hair grow faster?

F.A.S.T stands for Fortified Amino Scalp Therapy and combines a special blend of natural herbs and essential amino acids to stimulate and trigger hair growth making your hair grow up to 99% faster to be precise.

Normal hair grows about half an inch at the most per month (this definitely does NOT apply to me my hair grows at a snails pace!) but results show that after using FAST shampoo and conditioner for at least one month your hair will grow roughly double the usual amount.

Amino Acids- This is the building block to protein which is ESSENTIAL for hair growth and as our hair is mainly made up of a protein called Keratin so by using FAST is basically feeding our hair with what it quite literally needs in order for it to grow long and healthily.

Vitamins- FAST shampoo and conditioner contain Biotin and Pantothenic acid which many people believe taking large amounts of will make hair grow faster but in truth will only work when directly applied to the hair and scalp.
Biotin- This vitamin builds the strength of each strand of hair making hair less prone to breaking
Pantothenic- Beautifies hair by making it soft and shiny and slippery stopping it from tangling and breaking.

Herbs- After doing my research I was unable to find out the actual list of herbs included within these products which makes me wonder what it is really included within the product but FAST claims the active herbs fortifies the products with everything the hair needs to stimulate speedy hair growth...guess we'll just have to take their word for it on this.

Most people I've told about FAST struggle to believe me when I say these products really do work and I was incredibly sceptical and fairly doubtful that it would make any difference at all to the length of my hair...until I tried it for myself.


After using FAST shampoo and conditioner EVERYDAY for 4 weeks I've already seen my hair grow roughly an inch in length! Which for my slow hair growth rate, is fantastic results. Its very difficult to measure the actual length of hair but from knowing my own hair very well and especially seeing as I'm so obsessed with its length I know its grown a hell of a lot since using FAST.
I've noticed in particular the little hairs underneath at the back of my head have grown SO much - to the point where the neatly bunch into my pony tail when I put it up (before they would be too short to do this and always fall out). To me this is a complete miracle and something I want to shout about as I know SO many women in the same position as me wanting to grow their hair.

I also love how the products make my hair feel and smell, I'm going to religiously stick to this shampoo for at least the next 6 months and monitor my hair growth...I promise to keep you all updated!! I will soon be having my dead ends snipped off soon, so it will be very interesting to see how my hair grows afterwards.

If you, like me crave for LONG hair then why not take on the Rapunzel Challenge yourself and invest in FAST to see results worth raving about and at only £24.99 its 100% worth it for the results I've experienced.
