How to grow your hair fast! (Faire pousser ses cheveux plus vite naturellement !)

Last time I went to the hairdresser to cut just the very ends of my hair I came out with a little tear in my eye. The hairdresser didn’t listen to my requests and seemed to attack my hair with his scissors and chopped off nearer 20cm than the 2cm I had asked for (If I am honest i could be exaggerating a touch but as all women know this is not a subject to joke around with)!!! So in reality he didn’t hack 20cm off but let’s just say he definitely had his wicked way with it and I left feeling slightly folically abused. As I made my way home I made the decision to try taking some vitamins I had been reading about that were meant to aid hair growth. I was hoping to try and quickly get back some of my length and give my hair a boost. I chose the ones from Country Life called Maxi Hair Plus as most of the reviews I had seen were very complimentary. I have to admit to being a bit skeptical at first but as I had nothing to lose, and given that the good composition and the affordability were both good incentives, I thought it was worth giving them a punt. It was a month long treatment and now that I have finished the bottle I thought it would be interesting to give a brief account of my experience and whether the vitamins seemed to work.


La dernière fois que je suis allée chez le coiffeur pour couper mes pointes je suis ressortie avec la larmichette à l‘oeil. Le coiffeur y est allé un peu fort avec les ciseaux et a confondu 2 cm avec 20 cm. Bon j’exagère un peu, il n’a pas coupé 20 cm mais disons qu’il s’est fait plaisir. Du coup pour essayer de retrouver rapidement la longueur perdue et donner un coup de pouce à mes cheveux, j’ai décidé de commencer une petite cure de vitamines. Après quelques recherches, j’ai opté pour celle de Country Life, Maxi Hair Plus (cure d’un mois). Un peu sceptique au départ, je me suis dit que je n’avais rien à perdre et compte tenu de la bonne composition et du prix abordable du produit, cela valait le coup d’essayer. Maintenant que cette cure est terminée, je trouvais alors intéressant de vous en faire un petit compte rendu.

Maxi Hair Plus is a nutritional supplement that promises to bring life back to hair, skin and nails. Personally though I took these capsules for the sole purpose of growing my hair.

Composition: The capsules are made of vitamins, biotin, zinc, MSM and other ingredients that help promote hair growth. They are also gluten-free and suitable for vegetarians.

Ingredients

Vitamine A, Vitamine C, Vitamine E, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamine B-6, Folic Acid, Vitamine B-12, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Iodine, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, MSM, L-Méthionine, Horsetail Extract,  L-cystéine, Inositol, PABA, Choline.

Others ingrédients: Cellulose (capsule shell), cellulose, L-leucine, medium chain triglycerides, maltodextrin, silica, inulin (from chicory root), calcium silicate.

Use: A box contains 120 capsules, 4 to be taken per day at mealtimes, with a glass of water. I took 2 capsules at lunch and 2 at dinner for a month.

Price: £13.49 for 120 capsules.

Result: I used this food supplement for a 1 month, as recommended by the brand. Before I started the ‘treatment’ I measured my hair at 68 cm and one month later by the end of the treatment it had grown to 71 cm. My hair grew 3cm in 1 month!! Not bad at all!! My usual monthly growth is closer to 1cm so this was quite a pleasing result. Of course I didn’t have another version of me that wasn’t taking the pills to compare with so there could have been many other factors that were also attributing to this increase but either way it was a great outcome! Often during autumn I notice that I have an increase in hair loss however this year I noticed a decrease which I am also tempted to attribute to the vitamin intake. I honestly did not expect to see such positive results and I am hugely satisfied with these vitamins. Some reviews I had seen people noted some side effects but I didn’t experience anything of the sort apart from slightly fluorescent yellow pee ^^ but no reason to worry as this is apparently quite normal. Otherwise, the only downside is the size of the capsules, far too big for my liking and difficult to swallow at times. Regarding my nails and skin, I didn’t notice any real change or improvement. So I can’t tell you whether the treatment had any impact on them at all.

Have you ever tried taking any vitamins to help grow your hair ?

Maxi Hair Plus capsules are available on the iherb.


Maxi Hair Plus est un un complément alimentaire promettant de redonner vie aux cheveux, aux ongles, et à la peau. Perso, j’ai pris ces gélules dans le seul but de booster la pousse de mes cheveux.

La Composition : Ces gélules sont composées d’un ensemble de vitamines, de biotine, de zinc, de MSM et d’autres ingrédients qui contribuent à favoriser la pousse des cheveux. Elles sont également sans gluten et conviennent aux végétariens.

Ingredients

Vitamine A, Vitamine C, Vitamine E, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamine B-6, Folic Acid, Vitamine B-12, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Iodine, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, MSM, L-Méthionine, Horsetail Extract,  L-cystéine, Inositol, PABA, Choline.

Others ingrédients: Cellulose (capsule shell), cellulose, L-leucine, medium chain triglycerides, maltodextrin, silica, inulin (from chicory root), calcium silicate.

Utilisation : Une boîte contient 120 gélules, soit 4 à prendre par jour au moment des repas, avec un verre d’eau. De mon côté, j’ai pris 2 gélules au déjeuner et 2 au dîner pendant un mois.

Prix: €15.51 les 120 gélules.

Les résultats : J’ai donc utilisé ce complément alimentaire pendant 1 mois, comme le préconise la marque. Avant de commencer la cure j’ai mesuré mes cheveux, ils faisaient 68 cm et un mois après, à la fin de la cure, 71 cm ! Mes cheveux ont poussé de 3 cm en 1 mois !! Pas mal non ? Sachant qu’en règle générale ma pousse mensuelle est à peu près de 1 cm. J’ai également constaté une diminution de ma chute de cheveux saisonnière alors que habituellement au début de l’automne c’est un peu la cata, je perds pas mal de cheveux. Je ne m’attendais pas à des résultats aussi positifs, je suis donc très contente de cette cure qui est, dans mon cas, vraiment efficace. Je n’ai pas eu d’effets indésirables, ni d’effets secondaires, mis à part du pipi jaune fluo ^^ mais pas d’inquiétude, je me suis renseignée et c’est tout à fait normal. Sinon le seul petit bémol c’est la taille des gélules, beaucoup trop grosse donc difficiles à avaler par moment. Concernant l’aspect de ma peau ou de mes ongles, je n’ai constaté aucune différence ou amélioration.

Vous l’aurez compris, ce bilan est pour moi très positif. Je suis vraiment satisfaite de cette cure et je la renouvellerai prochainement.

Si vous avez testé Maxi Hair Plus, avez vous constaté les mêmes résultats ?

✓Vous trouverez les gélules Maxi Hair Plus sur le site iherb.

    J’attendais avec impatience ta revue sur ces vitamines. Je vais me laisser tenter parce que j’ai l’impression que mes cheveux ne poussent pas, ça me déprime. Est ce que iherb livre rapidement et est ce qu’il y a des frais de douane ?

    I always try to take vitamins but seem to forget more often than I remember! I really want to try these now after hearing what great results your hair saw. I will just have to set alarms on my phone every day to make sure I take the pills!! Thanks so much for the recommendation!!!

    Great post. I hadn’t thought of approaching fixing my breaking hair and hair loss by using vitamins and nutritional supplements but now I think about it, it makes more sense than using any external products.

    Je ne connaissais pas du tout mais ça me donne envie d’essayer, j’en ai marre de mes cheveux courts ^^

    Alalala ces coiffeuses… Je dis aussi souvent que les points et je ressors avec 10 cm en moins… En tout cas c’est génial que ces gélules fonctionnent. J’avoue que je suis souvent sceptique avec les compléments alimentaires de la sorte… mais à voir. C’est intéressant en tout cas.

    It’s interesting to see the growth of you got in a month. I’m the opposite as My hair grows so quickly that I’m forever needing a hair cut! It’s a shame that the capsules were hard to swallow though.

    Oh no! It is so awful when hairdressers cut off more than what you were expecting but I am glad that you found food supplements that helped grow your hair! That is fantastic x

    Question bête mais que je me pose toujours quand il s’agit de produit favorisant la pousse des cheveux : est-ce que ça fait aussi pousser davantage les poils des autres parties du corps (aisselles, jambes, maillot…) ? Parce que je suis en train de faire des séances d’épilation à la lumière pulsée et ce serait con que ces vitamines fassent pousser les poils plus vite alors que c’est l’inverse qu’on recherche ^^
    Si d’autres personnes ont des retours d’expérience à me faire sur ce sujet (ou d’autres vitamines), je suis preneuse ! Merci.

    I cut my hair earlier this year. I used to have really long hair like past my bra line. And now just above my shoulders so ended up losing around 8 inches in total but I actually wanted it short. Fast forward 4 months and now I’m in that awkward growing out phase so could really do with something like this. It’s quite impressive to have that much growth and at that price it’s definitely worth a try. Thanks for sharing!

    Maybe for now I am not needing this but getting ready in case I will be in need of this. Good things there is already a kind of remedy like this. Sometimes its frustrating waiting our hair grow long.

    Sound amazing, if they work. I would liked to have seen photos of before and after so I can see that they work x

  13. 11th October 2017 / 11:35 am

    I hate it when the hairdresser doesn’t listen to your requests – glad these have worked for you though x

  14. 11th October 2017 / 1:04 pm

    These sound fantastic! There’s nothing worse than having too much hair chopped off
