When it comes to my hair, admittedly, I’m touch on it. Naturally my hair is mousey brown, wavy, and a bit blah. Since I was 13 I’ve consistently highlighted, straightened and product-ed my hair into submission, and admittedly it’s in need of a little TLC. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been making sure to take a little extra care with my strands in the effort to grow my hair a bit longer pre-summer. I’ve bought silk scrunchies to wear to bed, biotin which I’ve been taking daily (my nails are growing crazy-fast thanks to the stuff) and I’ve also added a couple of products to my nightly routine which are designed to encourage hair to grow longer and stronger.
Obviously it’s not Rapunzel in a tube, but when I was in Boots the other week, I couldn’t resist picking up Umberto Giannini’s Grow Long Grow Tonic. It’s touted as bio-active hair growth tonic, it’s been specially formulated with natural ingredients proven to accelerate hair growth and hair loss. Obviously, when growing your hair as long and keeping it as healthy as possible, that’s the plan! I’ve been using the tonic nightly for about a fortnight, and although I can’t say I’ve noticed an incredible surge of new growth, it smells good (like coffee cake) it seems to make my hair feel stronger the next morning after washing, and it’s also completely vegan, which is good to know. Part of the wider Grow Long range, I’m tempted to give the scalp scrub and Grow Mask a go too!
Umberto Giannini Grow Tonic is priced at £10 and is available here.
