Did you cut your hair and now you regret it? If it’s any consolation, we all have been there when we got our hair chopped, by choice or by mistake only to repent later. Nevertheless, now you may want to grow it stronger and longer. And so you would empty your wallets on multiple hair serums that have been marketed as suitable for hair growth. Well, truth be told, most of these products are just marketing gimmicks preying on the gullible ones. Only a few of them work. Most importantly, these products may also cause allergic reactions or do the opposite and increase hair fall. 

So, what are you left with? Well, it’s always best to go natural to avoid any side effects and see results at the same time. You can always try herbs that have stood the test of time and have been hailed by our ancestors for being effective when it comes to growing your hair at a rapid pace.
