Does Grow Gorgeous Really Work?

Does Grow Gorgeous Really Work?

This isn’t the first time I’ve written about Grow Gorgeous. In fact, you’ll possibly have come across numerous posts where I have shared the greatness of this cult haircare range, which helps to restore hair to its full potential. In fact, I’d go as far as saying I’m a little obsessed, to the extent where I have put myself forward (along with another haircare fanatic at SkinStore) to take on a Grow Gorgeous challenge. Thicker, healthier hair will be ours!

If you don’t already know about this brand, you can find a fully informative post we shared previously here. But in a nutshell, its a revolutionary new hair growth range, made up of innovative serums, treatments, shampoos and conditioners which help to enhance hair’s natural beauty without causing damage. The most talked about product – and a bestseller on SkinStore – is the Hair Density Serum, which includes a next-generation glucoside complex shown to increase visible density. So if it’s thickness and volume you need, this is a great scalp stimulator to apply once a day. It also contains the first ever 6% concentration of caffeine, which is shown to delay visible hair thinning.

At this stage, you’re possibly wanting to know a little more about the challenge myself and Anna (our makeup specialist) are taking on, and the most important question on everyone’s lips: do Grow Gorgeous products really work? Take a read of our scenarios below to see what process we are taking, the products we are using, and the results we are hoping for!

Emma Campbell, Beauty Editor: Thickness and Density

EMMA DAY1

Length of challenge: 60 days

Concerns & Aims

  • Hair texture is very fine
  • Lacks volume
  • Lacks thickness and fullness in appearance
  • Healthy ends, but prone to split ends and breakage

“Sadly, I’ve been cursed with fine hair which is very thin and prone to breakage. I have a lot of it, but the hairs themselves are fine and I struggle to ‘plump it up’ and get any form of volume or shape. I’m taking on the Grow Gorgeous challenge with the hope to increase the density and thickness, so that when I touch my hair it feels thicker, and also looks it in appearance too. As I regularly highlight my hair, the ends are usually weak and in a dry condition, therefore I really want to improve the condition of the ends as well”

Products on trial

  • Hair Density Serum
  • End Split Ends
  • Overnight to Gorgeous Mask

“I’m trialing out the Hair Density Serum and currently on day 17 of use, which I’m applying to my scalp once a day just before I go to bed. It’s a 60 day trial, so I’m hoping to see and feel more density and thickness after continued use. I’m also using the End Split Ends cream on damp hair before blow-drying, which I’m using every two days to try and improve the condition of my brittle ends. It aims to nourish and repair, encouraging strong, healthy locks – so lets see! Lastly, I’m using the Overnight to Gorgeous Mask, in which I apply to my hair, pop a towel on my pillow, and rinse out in the morning. It’s a combination of high- and low-molecular weight forms of hyaluronic acid, with purified mushroom. Amazonian açai and palm oils which work to hydrate, strengthen and smooth whilst I sleep, so I’ll be interested to see how I find using this in conjunction with the other two!”

Anna’s Hair on Day 1

Length of Challenge: 60 days

Concerns & Aims

  • Hair texture is medium/thick
  • Lacks volume and is quite flat
  • Hair is long but prone to splitting and breaking
  • Weak condition at the ends

“I’ve strived for thick, voluminous, long and fabulous hair my whole life and although I have the length, I have not been blessed with the condition. Admittedly I haven’t had a hair-cut in a good few months as you can perhaps guess by my picture, but I want to keep the length in the hope that testing out Grow Gorgeous hair products will help to strengthen my hair and provide a healthier and fuller look. As it’s so long and flat, I find my split ends are very…split! So although I have a lot of  hair, I’m taking on the Grow Gorgeous challenge with the hope to increase the overall condition, density and volume, so that my hair will feel thicker and healthier.”

Products on Trial:

  • Grow Gorgeous Hair Density Serum
  • Grow Gorgeous End Split End
  • Grow Gorgeous Back Into The Roots

“Day 17 of my Hair Density Serum trial and even though it’s a 60 day challenge, I’m starting to feel a difference already. I’ve been applying the Serum daily to my scalp and have personally found that when applying to wet hair, the texture instantly feels thicker once dry. I’m also using the End Split Ends product every other day, applying this to damp hair before allowing to dry naturally (as I never blow-dry my hair). My focus here is self-explanatory – to end my split ends! Again, I started this at the same time as the Hair Density Serum and have seen a slight improvement to date and can’t wait to see the difference in my next photo. My final Grow Gorgeous challenge is the Back Into The Roots 10 minute stimulating scalp masque, which I’m really banking on to help add volume to my hair. I’m using this once a week and have applied it twice so far; I must add here that I just love the smell of this product. It’s simple to use – literally apply to the roots for 10 minutes, get the hoovering done then rinse out and you’re good to go! Again, I can’t wait to see the change in my hair from these 3 impressive hair products.”
