BeautyHack Editor Natalia Kapitsa told what products helped to grow hair after lightening and restore it along its entire length.
“Two years ago I decided to leave the ranks of brunettes and return to my natural hair color. In my case, it didn't work out painlessly to get rid of the black, keeping the length - I had to say goodbye to twenty centimeters! To say that this did not make me happy is to remain silent. The next day I went to the store and bought 90% of the jars marked "for hair growth." Some of them were "anathema". Others have become loyal friends who appear over and over again on the bathroom shelf. I'll tell you about the tools that really work."
Intensive restorative hair mask Penetraitt Treatment, Sebastian Professional
Every editor has their own beauty weaknesses. I have hair masks. Tasting, sniffing, stirring and looking for the special ingredients that turn fine, unruly hair into satin is what I love. Founded in the early 70s by talented stylists from Los Angeles, Sebastian has a special relationship with us. It allows me to maintain the length of my discolored strands, I adore it dearly and test all new items maniacally. The regenerating mask works great on damaged ends, smoothing the cuticles. For this, a deep nod to jojoba oil, rice bran and silk proteins. By the way, about the latter. The protein is embedded under the scales, increasing hair density. They look healthier. The mask has a thick consistency and a pleasant aroma - no aggressive fragrances (hypersensitive noses will be appreciated). Usually three minutes is enoughto make the strands shine and shimmery. When I have time, I hold the mask for 40-50 minutes, warming and heating the hair with a hairdryer. The effect is like after salon care.
Price: about 3 200 rubles.
Ampoules for stimulating hair growth and strengthening, DSD De Luxe
This "fighter" for healthy hair came to me on the advice of a beautician. The main active ingredient of the ampoules is the "beauty vitamin": biotin. He takes part in the synthesis of keratin - the main building material of hair. Additional "infantry": zinc, sulfur, calcium and other micro and macro elements necessary for the growth of healthy, beautiful hair. Regular use of ampoules (the key word is "regular") enhances growth and stimulates metabolic processes. My result is plus 2.5 cm per month. In my opinion, there is something to brag about.

Tonic, stimulating the growth of hair, the Hair Tonic, About ' right
My stylist, Zhenya Shatokhin (@ yauhen) introduced me to the organic cosmetics brand O'right. After each of my visits, I took away from him a jar, each of which caused delight and nothing else.
Once, over a cup of coffee, I complained to Zhenya that after all my bullying my hair falls out and does not grow. With the words "I will come now", the stylist retired to the warehouse. When he returned, he held out a glass bottle with a wooden lid with a satisfied smile: “Here! True, only male remains, but also cool”.
At home, having unpacked the box and sniffed the tonic, I was sure: Zhenya made a mistake and brought me a perfume - it smelled like Dad's favorite cologne: brutal and courageous. Google "said" no mistake - it really helps hair grow faster. Spoiler alert: don't expect miracles in two weeks. I saw the result in two months: the hair began to grow faster, and fluff appeared in the forehead area - the tonic “woke up” my sleeping, lazy follicles. The product is 90% natural ingredients. The main active ingredient is ginger extract. It stimulates metabolic processes in hair follicles - no miracles.
Price: about 4000 rubles.
Serum for the growth of strong and long hair Serum Extentioniste Resistance, Kerastase
The Resistance line was developed by Kerastase specialists for the care of damaged, dry hair (that is, mine is a joke!). The leave-in serum is one of my favorites in this series. Its main active ingredient is ceramide, which strengthens the bulb and promotes the growth of healthy and strong hair. I use it once a week. The first results are visible in a month. If you want a wow effect, buy a massage roller - it will improve blood circulation and improve metabolic processes.
Price: 3 300 rub.
Shampoo and conditioner Preset Shampoo And Conditioner, Sebastian Proffessional
I wanted to try shampoo for deep cleaning for a long time - I heard too many praise from stylists, bloggers and mere mortals. Spoiler alert: everything is reasonable and legal.
Preset is designed to remove styling residues and other impurities that are too tough for conventional shampoos. And it fulfills its function by all 300% - after using it, I finally got the meaning of the phrase "the skin breathes." Shampoo and conditioner worked wonders: my hair hasn't shone like that in a long time.
Please note that neutral scent shampoo is not intended for daily use. Once every two weeks is the ideal and most correct scheme.
The air conditioner deserves a separate applause. It gives hair a beautiful texture and allows for a soft, natural look. Unlike shampoo, no one forbids using conditioner every day - to your health!

These vitamins are not known only by those who have never tried to grow hair! They are recommended by trichologists and bloggers, beauty editors and simply not indifferent. The course of admission is designed for two months. Spring is the time to start to flaunt with a scythe to the waist by summer. After the course, the hair not only grows faster, but also becomes thicker - dormant follicles "wake up", "undercoat" appears. The composition contains many usefulness and "goodies" for hair: wheat germ oil, omega-3 and omega-6, gamma-linolenic acid, glycerin and others. I drink the course twice a year. Hair really grows faster.
