How to Choose a Hair Growth Product
SO MANY PRODUCTS...I DON'T KNOW WHICH IS RIGHT FOR ME.
Have you ever said this to yourself? If so, you're in luck. In today's blog post I'm giving you 12 tips/questions you can ask to help you when deciding which hair growth product you should buy...
1. IS THIS PRODUCT ALL NATURAL? 🌿
The product may not be 100 percent organic or vegan, but you do want to make sure that the most of the ingredients in it are. Don't be afraid to reach out to the company for more information especially if you found them on Facebook, Instagram or another social media platform.
I'd hate for you to spend your money on a product only to find that it contains harsh chemicals. And regarding the One80 Hair Products, of course....each of our products are all natural!
2. WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS? 🤔
So this goes with question #1, if it's natural, you should have an idea of what the natural ingredients are. If you are not able to find a list on the website or social media then be sure to reach out to the company and ask.
If you know what's in something, you'll know if it's going to work for you or not. For example, some women's hair does not respond well to coconut oil. It can make their hair really dry and cause breakage. So if you know that a product has a certain ingredient your hair doesn't like, then you know whether or not is for you.
3. WHAT'S THE AVERAGE TIME IT TAKES TO SEE RESULTS?
The misconception I think a lot of us have when buying products is we think we'll see results within a couple of weeks. If this not the expectation from the manufacturer or from the supplier, then that should not be your expectation.
When asking this question, remember, you're not asking for a specific time for YOU per se' just the average time it takes for most customers to see results?
4. WHAT ARE THE EFFECTIVE INGREDIENTS? 🕰️
Every growth product contains ingredients for different things. You have some ingredients that are specifically for growth, some for scalp health, some to strengthen the hair or to strengthen the follicles. So you want to know what's the the thing in here that's supposed to grow my hair?
Is it Rosemary? Is it olive oil? Is it eucalyptus? Tea tree or is it a combination of things. You should know.
5. HOW LONG WILL THIS PRODUCT LAST? 🗓️
For example, the BALM! hair growth treatment comes in two sizes..basically large & small. How long they last depends on where & how you're using it.
The small size for example, if you're just using it on your edges, it should last for four weeks. If you're using it on a larger area where you need hair growth, it will probably only last one to two. I always suggest starting with the smaller size so you can test it out before you invest in the larger size.
This question is also tied to how much more money you'll have to spend. If you buy a product and you know it will only last two or three weeks, that means in another two weeks you'll have to buy more. And if it's expensive, then you know if you can afford to buy it again if necessary.
6. IS THERE A MONEY BACK GUARANTEE? 💰
I'll keep this short and sweet because it's a deal breaker for some. Knowing that a company will not give you your money back if you're not satisfied causes many women to turn away immediately.
7. CAN I TALK TO SOMEONE TO ASK QUESTIONS? 📞
I can't tell you how many calls & emails I've taken with customers to answer questions or just to give them reassurance that there was an actual human on the other end.
Some companies will do this, especially the smaller ones. Larger companies? Probably not. They may only respond to you via email. This helps you to know the company you will spend your money with and maybe learn a little bit about their story. It also helps to with any doubts you may have on whether or not you'll be scammed.
8. DO I HAVE TO USE OTHER PRODUCTS FOR IT TO WORK? 🧴
This is a good question because sometimes companies have an entire system of products that you have to use in order to see results. And they don't always tell you that upfront.
The One80 products are not like that. Using our other products do help to enhance the process because it helps to deal with other hair issues. But it's definitely not necessary.
9. WILL MY HAIR STOP GROWING IF I STOP USING IT? 🛑
A good hair growth product (like the BALM!) should work to create a healthier scalp so that your hair can grow. However, if you revert back to doing unhealthy things to your scalp then of course, products won't be as effective no matter how often you use it.
10. WHAT TYPE OF HAIR LOSS DOES THIS WORK FOR? 🤷🏽
Does it work for alopecia, dead follicles, hair loss from medication, what about stress? Try to be as specific as possible
There's so many other types of hair loss that some products don't address. So asking this question is not only smart but it helps you to be very strategic when figuring out if a product is for you.
11. ARE THERE BEFORE & AFTER PICS OR REVIEWS? 📸
This is a big one because we all want to see those before and after pics and reviews. Always, always, always check for these.
Our before and after pictures are on Facebook, Instagram and the website. You should be able to find those in any company unless they're like a brand spanking new company. If there are no before and after pictures there should at least be a few reviews.
12. IS IT AVAILABLE IN STORES? 🏪
So I saved this one for last because I get this question CONSTANTLY!
I understand the reason for this question, because sometimes you want to see things before you buy.
I appreciate all of the One80 customers that stepped out and trusted me enough to say, "hey, here's my money. I trust that you're going to deliver a quality product." I did my best to do that. However, there are still women that basically roll their eyes at me like, "well, if it was that good, it would be in stores!" 😂
So if you're reading this, try not to give small businesses a hard time about their products not being in stores. It's not that easy. Doable....but not easy. There's money involved, time, connection, not to mention the plans needed to set your business up for success.
