In this post I described how to make a DIY Hair Tonic to provide volume, shine, and generally promote healthy hair. I also mentioned that the ingredients in this tonic were said to promote hair growth (only anecdotally, no studies have been done on this) in the sense that it would encourage existing hair to grow faster and encourage new hair to sprout.
Well, it’s been three months since that post, and I’ve had a haircut in that time too, so now is a good time to analyse whether my hair growth has increased. Here are some photos I took this morning showing my hair as it is right now:
The volume of my hair has definitely increased in that time, which I didn’t expect:
By way of comparison, this is what my hair was like originally. A bit sad!
This is what my hair was just after I’d started using the tonic. I’d been using it for a few weeks here, and it was already creating soft volume at the crown and thicker hair:
I took this photo this morning, three months later. I was actually quite shocked at the difference! Looks like my hair has grown super quick, and I’m thrilled with how healthy it looks:
If I look closely, I can actually see lots of new little hairs springing up on my scalp:
I’m beyond pleased with the results of this treatment. I still apply it every day after washing my hair, and I’m hoping for mermaid-quality hair by summer. Best of all, it’s cheap as chips, and as easy to make as pouring a coffee!
