Best Shampoo For Hair Growth getty

Many of us feel like our hair is never growing, or just not growing fast enough. It can be daunting when we're pondering methods for how to grow hair faster, and come up short.

When this happens, we may want to turn to products that stimulate hair growth. And while there are plenty of prescription-based formulas to try, it's also a good idea to see if an easier-to-grab drugstore aisle one works first.


When looking for the best shampoo for hair growth, pay attention to formulas with ingredients like biotin or collagen, as well as antioxidants such as vitamin E and ginseng, amino acids, and B-vitamins, as they help rebuild hair.

You may also want to avoid parabens, sulfates, and fragrances, which may just make your hair’s problems worse. No one needs that!
