FAST Shampoo and Conditioner - Results

FAST or Fortified Amino Scalp Therapy

I did a quick post about the FAST Shampoo and Conditioner, which you can find here. It's a product that was developed in Canada to promote hair re-growth for patients recovering from chemotherapy, so I was desperate to see if these amazing claims could possibly be true?

As you may have read in my previous post, I was trying this to really grow out a horrific layer incident which seemed to refuse to grow back, (too short to really tuck behind an ear, forget putting up without bobby pins), and was desperate to try this, with such amazing claims it was too irresistible not to try.

I have steered clear of any sort of heat styling tools, and used FAST religiously for the last few weeks until the bottles were empty....

...and yes. It works. My hair has grown about 2 (maybe a little more) inches in the last 3 months, and for slow growing hair, that is just amazing. I know this for a fact, as my annoying layer of doom can now be tied easily into a ponytail, and blends wayyy better in with the rest of my hair. 

I have also noticed the regrowth of my natural colour. Now, I dyed my hair absolutely ages ago, and didn't touch it since, so much so I pretty much presumed the colour I had going on was my own. But no. I have a subtle (but it's definitely there), couple of inches of growth of my actual natural hair colour, which is another bit of proof that this stuff really works!

I would say - it definitely makes your hair lighter, and my mum tried it but stopped (horrified) after one use as it stripped colour very rapidly out of her hair, so if you have coloured hair that is definitely something to think about. But apart from that...?! It's pretty much a miracle product and I would definitely recommend using it for that little extra oomph of growth.

Yes, it's not the most nourishing and no, it doesn't smell the best (a bit clinical), but if it's results you're after... this does it's job and then some.

At £25 for both Shampoo and Conditioner, (available at most Boots)... it's quite expensive, but definitely worth it, if you are trying to grow out some kind of a hair disaster or are desperately hankering after a couple more inches to add to your locks.

What do you think? Has anyone else tried FAST?

Lots of Love,


  1. This is so interesting, I had no idea there were products like this on the market. I've recently been using the Lee Stafford 'Hair Growth' range which has definitely helped my hair grow a little bit, but not too much, well not yet anyway (I've made my way through the full shampoo and condition). I've wanted my hair to grow for so long and the problem with mine is it doesn't grow past a certain length, so I will definitely be trying these, and if it works then the price is worth it! Fingers crossed. :)
