About a month ago, I was convinced my hair had retired. Yep. You read that correctly. I was 99% sure my hair had given up doing its job as ‘being hair’ and bought itself a holiday home in a Spanish Island. Ok, I’m probably taking this a bit too far now. What I’m basically trying to say is that it simply stopped growing. I decided around a year ago that I wanted to cut my hair short. I made the brave decision to cut off my long brunette locks for a more grown-up ‘lob’ look. I enjoyed it for a few months until I got bored and wanted my long, thick hair back. There was one slight problem, I don’t think it wanted me back.
I had so many hair cuts which were just to snip to ends off and maintain the short hair, but it simply stayed the same length. I tried everything to get it to grow. I would spend a good five minutes deeply massaging my scalp to try and encourage growth in my hair, but nothing.
Cut to a few weeks later and my work Christmas party is announced – the girls group chat instantly boomed, ‘are you going?’ and ‘what are you wearing?’. I could only think of one thing, I wish I had my long hair to make myself feel extra glam. This probably sounds pretty pathetic, but you don’t know this feeling unless you’ve gone from very long to short hair!
I started asking my friends for some advice. How can I get my hair to grow super quick in 2 months? My friend suggested the brand, Mane ‘n Tail and she mentioned how she knew someone who had used to as they wanted to stop wearing their hair extensions. My friend said that in a month, she ditched the extensions, and it was all thanks to the shampoo brand.
I won’t lie, as a bit of a Graphic Design snob, I was a bit put off by the packaging at first, but after having a mooch into the brand, I knew I had to try it. The reviews on amazing were soaring, and it was due to be pay day that week…
Cut to a month later and I’m looking through my photos from my graduation. Even with my hair curled, I can notice a huge difference in length! I am just over the moon. I’ve even got my mum hooked onto the stuff. We both have super thick hair, so this stuff is great for helping us maintain it.
While it has definitely helped me with my hair growth, I wouldn’t say this is the main selling point of the brand. It really helps with the texture and leaves your hair just feeling lovely and clean, which is what you want, right?
If you’re like me, and have lost hope with other shampoo, please take a look at this super cool Mane ‘n Tail stuff. You really will not regret it.
