5 Products To Make Your Hair Grow That Actually Work

When you live in a society where celebs with waist-grazing hair extensions are promoting gummy bears that claim to make your grow up and down your Instagram feed, it’s hard NOT to think about how to get thicker, longer hair. So whether your hair seems to be thinning or the last hair stylist made you look like Kate Gosselin when you wanted a Lucy Hale bob, we’ve rounded up the best hair growth supplements for you to try that aren’t SugarbearHair gummies.

To Promote Topically:

If you’re not into swallowing horse pills, Evolis’ hair activator drops are your way to go. The drops are the “Promote” step in the brand’s three step Reverse, Promote and Prevent collection which, well, reverses hair loss, promotes hair growth, and prevents future hair loss and breakage. You simply apply the drops to the scalp twice a day (on wet or dry hair) and within about two months (or by the end of the bottle, whichever comes first) you should see hair length and thickness accelerate by about 20%.

To Promote From The Inside Out:

If you didn’t already know, major build-up on the scalp can stunt your hair’s growth, but it can also cause you to experience hair loss. So if you use dry shampoo like a psycho and try to avoid washing your hair at all costs, you definitely need OGX’s detoxifying pomegranate and ginger scalp toner. It rids the root of your hair of excess build-up, cleanses the hair, and balances the scalp to promote growth.
