Grow Hair Fast

Grow Hair Fast
February 12th, 2011

grow hair fastHow to grow hair fast – many people want to know how do you do it, and is it even possible? Can you grow your hair faster, longer, and thicker? According to the book “Grow Hair Fast” by Riquette Hofstein, it’s completely possible to have a “new head of hair in 90 days.” I picked up this book a few years ago hoping it would offer new solutions to my hair loss problem. The book’s author is a licensed trichologist (a person who studies hair and hair loss), which is great because trichologists are very rare. Her degree is from the Rene Furterer Institute in Paris. The title of the book is slightly misleading because the book is about reversing hair loss, not growing hair faster. For the most part, hair grows at a predetermined rate, so I’m not sure you can really speed up its growth. Your best bet for that is to eat well, consume enough protein, exercise, sleep enough, reduce stress, and take vitamins that support healthy hair (which I will write about in another post).

The “Grow Hair Fast” book features a variety of unique natural topical treatments to regrow hair. Before using any of the treatments in the book, you should do a small patch test first to make sure you aren’t allergic to any of the ingredients. There are a lot of natural ingredients than can potentially cause a bad reaction. The author says if your hair follicles have completely stopped producing hair, this can’t be reversed, but if you still have peach fuzz, there is hope.

Most people that suffer from hair loss have genetic hair loss (androgenetic alopecia), yet there is still hope to restore your hair, and combat the effects of DHT on your hair follicles. Riquette states 95% of hair loss is genetic :( She also believes as sebum builds up in the hair follicle (especially from regular styling products), the follicle becomes blocked and damaged, which literally kills the hair. This is a hotly debated topic because most doctors don’t believe your hair follicles become blocked, so you can’t “unblock them” to reverse hair loss.

Grow Hair Fast regimen
When it comes to growing my hair thicker, I’ll try anything, but this is where the book scares me – the author states her regimen requires an unerring level of rigor, and you must do exactly as she states or you won’t see results. I think she says this is a way to not be held accountable if/when the treatment doesn’t work because the regimen is extremely complicated. She blasts Rogaine as being difficult to use, but her plan is ten times more complicated! If I knew it would really work, I would do it, but since nothing else has really worked for my hair loss, I confess I haven’t tried any of the treatments in the book yet, let alone every single one of them. What I hope to find are other people even more dedicated than me that will try out the treatments in the book, and report back to me with their results!

First up – you are supposed to throw out all of your hair products (shampoo, hairspray, styling products, dandruff shampoo, etc.) And you must give up using traditional hair dye (personally my hair looks horrible without lightening it). Then take a “before” photo so you can later see your progress. Next up you will get a “magic haircut” which will relieve pressure on your growing hair, and you will buy a boar’s hair brush. Next comes the hard part – you must make a variety of daily and weekly hair cocktails to cleanse and stimulate your hair follicles. You will be making scalp stimulators, a slougher cocktail, a mud pack, shampoo, a sealing lotion, a tea rinse, an herbal oil treatment, a conditioner, and more.

Ingredients for your treatments include: vodka, cayenne pepper, various oils, castile soap, various crushed leaves like rosemary and basil, apple cider vinegar, jojoba oil, raw eggs, flour, rum, and lots more. Holy cow – I don’t even know where to get half the ingredients needed for the mandatory treatments. Riquette gives specific recipes for each treatment, and has different ones for different hair issues (dry vs oily hair). There are also recipes for natural hair dyes. Scalp massage is another one of the facets of the program.

Next comes the diet portion of the plan because without the proper nutrients, minerals, proteins, and essential fatty acids, your hair won’t grow properly. There’s also a list of vitamins that should be taken as well (speak to your doctor before starting on the vitamin plan because she suggests some controversial things like iodine). Proper exercise is of course also part of the plan.

Grow Hair Fast conclusion
This book can be summed up in one word: overwhelming! Losing your hair is traumatic enough, but knowing you must follow a difficult, time-consuming plan to the tee made me feel even more depressed because I didn’t feel like I could do it. At the end of the book there are a few before and after pictures of men, which show good results, but other than that I don’t know of anyone that has followed the book, so I don’t know if people really do see results or not. When it comes to growing my hair back and reversing hair loss, I don’t rule out anything, so I would still recommend picking up the book and trying some of the treatments for yourself.

    I remember seeing this book before on Amazon and was wondering about it.

    Unfortunately I don’t think I have the time to follow a really complicated regimen, so I probably won’t be trying the program in the book. Of course if it was *guaranteed* to work I might change my mind. :)

    Also, I wanted to share this link that was posted by Dr. Oz. I thought you might find it as interesting as I do:

    Who knows how long it will take them to complete the research, but hey it gives me hope that maybe they’re onto something here!

      That’s an interesting study that I hadn’t heard about before, but why did they have to kill the mice? I know stem cells are being researched for curing hair loss, and some say the “cure” is 10 years away. I don’t think I have 10 years to wait!

    their are a lot of treatments and hair loss is a real issue for a lot of people, i dont really think tricologists are seen as real doctors and i don’t expect the nhs to dedicate much money to this area when they cant even take care of maternity wards first. good post

    After reading your post about this book I decided to do some research on it. It doesn’t seem to offer anymore information than you would already get by googling “natural hair loss remedies / treatments,” which I have already done for hours and hours on end. I feel your frustration / depression / desperation because I have been suffering with hair loss since I was a teenager and I am now in my early 30s. I’ve gone to dermatologists and have had every test under the map done to be told that it could probably just be due to stress. Well wouldn’t you expect me to be stressed if my hair was falling out?? I have overall thinning (diffuse) but it is more noticeable at the front (my bangs area). Rogaine not only sucked.. but who really wants to be dependent on a chemical for the rest of their life because once you stop it all falls out again?!! I used Nizoral but noticed I was getting irritation / itchiness from it so I have stopped. I noticed that I have been able to control it somewhat with vitamins, proper nutrition, and several natural “remedies” that either I have read about online or a family member has recommended (castor oil, olive oil, aloe vera gel, rosemary oil). I notice that there are times when I see new growth, but then it seems to just go back to zero again.. I know how hard it is and how hopeless it feels to go what you’re going through. I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your blog and you being strong enough to share what you’re going through with everone.

      I know exactly how you feel – nothing seems to work longterm, and the stress from the hair loss might be making it worse! This book has some info in it I hadn’t read elsewhere, but I’m sure the information is on the internet somewhere. The book claims you have to do everything exactly as she says or it won’t work, but it’s an extremely complicated regimen (which is why I haven’t done it). I’m still convinced there are solutions out there for a lot of women with hair loss, but it makes me crazy that so few of us seem to find the solution we need. I tried Nizoral but every time I used it, my hair shed more than normal, so I stopped using it.

    To be honest there is not really much you can do apart from eating well and following the hair care advice given by your hair dresser. Quicks fix are obviously wigs and hair extensions.

    Way back in the 90s, I bought riquettes book grow hair in 12 weeks…altogether the sum of ingredients were not cheap and it was time consuming since u had to make everything…I was unemployed so I had all the time in the world so I did everything down to the letter. My BF called it “man repellant” because these are potent herbs which SMELL! But I have to say my hair was awesome…I will never forget several weeks into it doing one of the once weekly super treatments and I peeled off a whole section of my scalp, or maybe it was wax, but it revealed a very healthy soft non oily under layer and my hair started getting thick again! Well time went on and I gave it all up…I tried doing bits n pieces but it didn’t do much, and now my hair is terrible again…I keep saying I am going to do it again but who knows…
