What Makes FAST Shampoo and Conditioner So Effective?

hair growthFAST or Fortified Amino Scalp Therapy is a deep cleansing shampoo and conditioner specifically made to stimulate faster hair growth, addressing all sorts of hair problems like a bad haircut, slow growing hair and even weak dry hair that is prone to breakage. FAST is made by Nisim International, a Canadian-based company well known for creating innovate products using natural and herbal active ingredients. Their products stimulate faster hair growth, fight hair loss and even retard hair growth.

 What are the benefits of using FAST shampoo and conditioner?

First and foremost, FAST is used to stimulate hair growth and it does this safely by using natural ingredients like amino acids, B-complex vitamins and a proprietary blend of herbs (herbal actives). These ingredients provide all the essential nutrients that hair needs for faster hair growth.

Also, FAST is a clarifying shampoo and conditioner, this means it cleanses all dirt and residue left by other hair products like: hair styling gels, moose, sprays and even residues left from your regular shampoo. It cleanses your hair and scalp creating a healthy environment for hair growth.

What are the active ingredients of FAST?

FAST contain Cystine, cysteine and methionine which are sulfur containing amino acids. Over 90% of the dry weight of hair comprises proteins called keratins, which have high disulfide content, from the amino acid cysteine[1]. Methionine is able to strengthen the structure of hair and nails[2].

A published study, resulting from a dermatology congress in Florence in 2006, found that the amount of hair found to be in the Anagen growth phase was significantly higher in a group of people who had taken methionine as part of an amino acid and vitamin B complex combination treatment[3] than a control group which had taken nothing.

Biotin or vitamin B7 is part of the B-complex vitamins. Biotin is also called Vitamin H, “H” coming from the German word “Haar and Haut” meaning hair and skin. Biotin is often recommended for strengthening hair and nails[4].

Panthenol is the biological active alcohol analog of pantothenic acid or vitamin B5, a member of the B-complex vitamins. Due to its conversion to pantothenic acid in the skin and hair, its commonly used name is Provitamin B5.

The main function of panthenol in hair care is its long lasting moisturizing effects. Panthenol has strong deposition onto the cuticle and deeply penetrates the cortex of a hair. Since panthenol penetrates into hair and improves its ability to regulate its moisture content, it increases its resistance to damage and brittleness[5].

Inositol is found in many foods, especially in fruits. It plays an important role in the health of cell membranes. For hair, Inositol is said to promote healthy hair and hair growth, according to some reports, Inositol strengthens the cells of the hair helping it to retain moisture[6].

Tocopheryl Acetate or Vitamin E is a fat soluble vitamin that is known for its anti-oxidant properties. Tocopheryl acetate does not get oxidized in the skin, where about 5% is converted to free tocopherol and provides beneficial antioxidant effects[7].

What makes FAST different from other hair growth products?

You will find the ingredients listed above are commonly found in many other products, some may even contain the same active ingredients found in FAST. However, these other products may have little or no effect in stimulating hair growth! The fact is, these hair companies know these ingredients work in promoting hair growth, but are unable to replicate the effectiveness of FAST because they do not know the specific ratios and combinations of ingredients, which is so critical to its effectiveness. The master formulators at Nisim spent decades researching and perfecting this unique formula before FAST was released into the market.

How to use FAST Shampoo and Conditioner?

FAST can be used like your regular shampoo and conditioner. But it is best to use FAST by washing with very warm water. This will open up and unclog obstructed pores, allowing the active ingredients of FAST to be absorbed in the hair shaft to stimulate hair growth. Also, it is advisable to massage the shampoo into the hair and scalp for 60 seconds, avoid rubbing. The massage and heat from warm water improves circulation to the scalp, allowing more nutrients and oxygen to flow to the follicles. Once you are happy with the length of your hair, you can stop using FAST and switch back to your regular shampoo.
