If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen I got an order of Hairburst Hair Vitamins, Shampoo and Conditioner when Holland & Barrett were doing their penny sale.
My hair isn’t the best, I’ve not been to a hairdresser in probably about 10 years, I cut and bleach my hair at home and J shaves the side of my head.
I don’t have much hair, it’s really fine and, as you can imagine, pretty damaged from all the bleach; however, I don’t ever need to straighten it and I rarely blow-dry it since it air drys really quick.
It gets really greasy so I have to wash my hair each day – I dream of being one of those girls that can go a week between washing my hair!
I’ve seen adverts for Hairburst everywhere lately and thought I would try it to see if it made my hair any stronger or grow any quicker.
I started off by trimming the lengths of my hair and got a fresh new side shave just for the occasion!
I got a 30 day supply of the chewable vitamins (I’m utterly terrible at trying to take tablets!) And started my two a day.
The vitamins are the tastiest things! They don’t taste fake sweet and are genuinely enjoyable – I was really tempted to eat the whole bottle in one go!
I managed to refrain from that but there was a couple of times where I forgot to take them (🙄) I was pretty consistent with eating them for the most part.
The vitamins contain Biotin, Selenium, Zinc, B5, B6 and B12 to help you grow long and strong hair. They are strawberry and blackcurrant flavour and apparently Hairburst give away sweets like this with their order sometimes.
The shampoo and conditioner was used every day. A big change for me – I normally only condition my hair once a week because it normally makes my hair look really flat for a few days afterwards! I also stopped using my silver shampoo during my test as that dries my hair out.
I really didn’t think I would like the shampoo and conditioner just because they are avocado and coconut scented. I hate the smell of fake coconut but luckily it wasn’t overpowering at all!
I would occasionally catch a whiff of it through the day too which I liked, and J mentioned on a few occasions that my hair smelled nice.
I only used the conditioner on the ends of my hair and on my side shave just so it wouldn’t bog my hair down. I was pleasantly surprised that I could keep this up and my hair didn’t look the way it normally does with conditioner!
After first use, my hair did feel quite nice but it wasn’t until about 20 days in where I noticed any real difference. My hair felt softer, thicker and I noticed I didn’t have to clean out my hairbrush quite as much so I was shedding way less and my hair wasn’t breaking as much as it usually would!
The vitamins are not suitable for vegetarians as they contain gelatin but the shampoo and conditioner is vegan. They also say they are a cruelty free brand but that is potentially contradictory of the use animal products – just depends on your ethics I guess!
Now the price of these is what puts me off. I got everything for £25.00 but to purchase them again it is £19.99 for a 30 day supply of vitamins and £24.99 for the conditioner and shampoo. both of with are 350ml bottles.
I still have loads of the shampoo and conditioner left, it will probably last me another month easily but are the results really worth the splurge?
I’m not so sure but I’ll let you be the judge of that. As I’ve said before, I’m crap at taking selfies so I apologise for the ridiculous pictures!
Also just want to add, J took the before ones and I forgot to get him to take a front picture to show the length of the side properly. I hope you can see!
I think my hair looks in better condition now but I don’t really notice any difference with the length of my hair.
What do you think? Do you think it was money well spent or should I give it a miss next time? Have you tried any of these types of products? What were your results like? I’d love it if you could let me know in the comments below!
Thanks, as ever for reading my ramblings! Speak soon!
