Doesn’t it hurt when you see clumps of (your) hair collect in unsightly piles when your shower? Doesn’t your heart break just a little every time you pull your hair together into a ponytail only to realise it’s not as thick as it used to be? Fret not, we’re here to help you find the best shampoos and conditioners for hair growth (no, you don’t have to only use hair growth oil for best results). So, pick up the pieces of your broken heart, dust yourself off and check the contents of your shampoos and conditioners for their ingredients. If they’re choc-full of ingredients like Amla, Shikakai, Hibiscus, Almond Oil, Coconut Oil, Biotin, Vitamin E and Keratin, then they’re ideal to boost hair growth.
Here are some of the best shampoos and conditioners for hair growth you must get your hands on now:
2. The Hair Growth Oils Special
One of the best shampoos and conditioners for hair growth is the L’oreal 6 Oil Nourish range. Both shampoo and conditioner are created with three traditional and three exotic nourishing oils. While the Almond, Coconut and Argan Oisl make your hair thicker, more manageable, and stronger, the Jojoba, Olive and Camelina Oils make your hair shinier, softer and smoother. Massage the L'Oreal Paris 6 Oil Nourish Shampoo into your wet scalp and hair and massage gently. Rinse well and reapply if necessary. Once you’re done with your shampoo, massage the L'Oreal Paris 6 Oil Nourish Conditioner into your hair and leave on for 5-7 minutes. Wash off and voila! Your hair never looked or felt better.
3. The Vitamin E Hair Growth Boost
Sometimes, all your hair needs is some Vitamin E love. As a natural antioxidant, Vitamin E is known to support a healthy scalp and assist with maintaining hair growth by reducing the free radicals that cause the hair follicles in your scalp to break down. Enter OGX Healing + Vitamin E Shampoo. Its moisturizing and nourishing formula helps penetrate strands, increase strength and smoothen hair from the root down to the tip. Add the OGX Healing +Vitamin E Conditioner to your hair care routine and you can bid adieu to scanty hair.
4. Hair Growth With A Protein Pump
Keratin, the protein that is found naturally in hair strands, not only aids in making your hair stronger and smoother, but it is also a must-have ingredient for hair growth. The best shampoos and conditioners for hair growth therefore have (no prizes for guessing) Keratin as a key ingredient. We swear by the Tresemme Keratin Smooth With Argan Oil Shampoo which is the best shampoo for hair growth. It strengthens hair and accelerates hair growth by virtue of its Keratin while the Argan Oil smoothens hair and controls frizz. Apply to wet hair, gently massage into your scalp and hair strands, wash with lukewarm water and follow up with the Tresemme Keratin Smooth With Argan Oil Conditioner for that finishing touch.
