I was kindly gifted 4 weeks worth of the. Hair Fuel box back in June and was intrigued by it because most hair products aren’t made for all types of hair and anything I’ve tried in that past, unless it was a home remedy (which you can find here) hasn’t worked. Laura started the. Hair Fuel after a bad perm at 17 and has used it ever since so I had high hopes.
I was interested in working with the. Hair Fuel because firstly, The Hair Fuel is a female run business and Laura is a creative boss! Secondly, their values are sustainability, mindfulness and joy. The Hair Fuel is working on all products being 100% sustainable: whether by using recycled materials or materials that are fully recyclable, reusable, or biodegradable. The hair mask is fully biodegradable and cruelty free, however, the sachet packaging is not yet recyclable in all countries. If you want to learn more about why Laura started the business, you can find it here.
In the pack you get a welcome card, instructions card, application bottle, powder sachet, oil sachet, shower cap and measuring tape.
Step 1 – add 2tbsp (or 30ml) warm water into the application bottle (the funnel was my own and doesn’t come in the pack)
Step 2 – add the powder mix and then the oil
Step 3 – shake the contents for 15-20 seconds or until well mixed
Step 4 – apply to scalp
Step 5 – cover hair ends with hair conditioner (to stop it from drying out) and apply shower cap
Step 6 – leave for 45 mins
Step 7 – wash out
Each time I used it, my scalp tingled. It felt like mint on my scalp or Jeba hair food and I LOVED it! It’s also a good sign it’s working because its main aim is to stiumulate hair growth from the roots. It also reminded me of my home remedy with honey in terms of the consistency.
The process in general was very straight forward but it made hair day quite a bit longer. I normally shampoo and rinse 2-3 times however, I had to shampoo and rinse 4-5 times because there would be particles in my hair that looked like hardening honey. In all honesty, it was totally worth it.
When I started, my hair was at 9 inches. After 4 weeks, my hair was shiny, thick and had grown to 10 inches but it was so thick I knew it needed to be relaxed for the final results.
After I relaxed my hair it was just over 11 inches! I genuinely can’t believe how efficient it’s been. It’s been a week since I relaxed my hair and normally by this stage, my scalp starts to flake really badly because of the chemicals and so far, there isn’t much at all.
Would I use the product again? YES! Would I recommend it? OF COURSE! Who wouldn’t after a 2+ inch growth?It made me re-look at how I look after my hair. There are lots of tips on the website about promoting hair growth but if you’re as lazy as me, all you need is the hair mask and a silk scarf (which I didn’t wear all the time) and you should still see results.
