FAST is a special blend of natural herbs and essential amino acids, which aims to aid hair growth and increase its rate by up to 99%. The shampoo and conditioner formulas contain 'the best ingredients to accelerate hair growth', so after a month you should see a significant change in your hair length and condition. In clinical trials conducted by the brand, 50% of the subjects benefited from an increased rate of hair growth after 42 days; 100% of the test subjects had an increased rate of hair growth after 84 days. Those are quite some stats, so I put it to the test to see if it lived up to expectations.
There's no fuss and frills with FAST - the shampoo and conditioner comes in the most simple of bottles, with no sophisticated packaging or design. Each bottle contains 300ml of product which is more than enough to keep you going for a month, which is how long you really need to put the products to the test. The fragrance is almost medicinal, but quite awakening, while the formulas contain no sulfates, parabens or DEA - ingredients that can potentially harm the scalp and prevent hair from looking and feeling healthy. The shampoo lathers well, leaving hair feeling squeaky clean without any residue, while the conditioner works to leave hair feeling soft and looking shiny. I've tried a lot of hair products in my time and this stands up to a lot of them, even without the hair growth properties.
So I've enjoyed using it, but does FAST actually aid hair growth? It works by providing the hair follicle and scalp with all the nutrients it needs to be stimulated - my scalp definitely feels healthier and there has been significantly less itching since I started using this. (I've got quite sensitive skin so I'm always getting an itchy scalp!) Over the last four weeks I would say my hair has started to grow and it's progressively getting into a better condition, which I suspect FAST has a lot to do with. With hair growth it's extremely hard to pinpoint the result of a product over a period of time, without enlisting a friend with a tape measure to pop round every week, so I can't be certain this is helping me. However, it's a great product and my hair looks and feels good, so if I gain a few centimeters as a side effect I'm more than happy. Mission: almost complete.
