4. Michael Van Clarke 3”’ More Inches Lifesaver Pre-Wash Treatment
It has a long name and the largest bottle out of all the hair growth products on this list with 500 ml available, sold through Net-a-Porter. It is a leave-in formula made to protect and reverse heat effects, halting the aging process and boosting the natural luster of your locks. It includes a unique cashmere protein and amino acid blend, while remaining completely free of silicones and parabens.
5. Sheamoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow & Restore Treatment Masque
Yes, the name is actually that long. Where to find it? At ULTA Beauty for a mere $13.49. Highly rated and using castor oil as its main ingredient, we are definitely eager to give this hair growth product a try. It is particularly good to use on chemically damaged hair, particularly those who are regular salon attendants for color, perm, or general heat styling.
It adds to the hair’s elasticity, reduces breakage and leaves you with soft, shiny and entirely manageable hair. The peppermint oil in there gives your scalp an invigorating experience. It is a family recipe by the Tucker family, founded back in 1912 in Sierra Leone by a 19-year-old mother of four.
6. Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment Dropper with 2% Minoxidil
Another of Sephora’s fabulous hair growth products, this dropper hair treatment is based on the only FDA-approved ingredient that has been clinically proven to help grow hair – 2% minoxidil. It is great for women who have thinning hair and is free of parabens, sulphates, and phthalates. It can be used daily for as long as you need it. It will not stop pregnancy hair loss, however.
7. Alterna Caviar Repair Rx Lengthening Hair & Scalp Elixir
A gorgeous bottle with a gorgeous name, this hair growth product is available at Nordstrom. It is made to maximize the growth potential of your hair, preventing breakage and conditioning your strands for a softer, smoother finish.

8. Nioxin Diamax Advanced Treatment
One of the more expensive hair products on our list, this Nioxin hair treatment is available for $53.90 from ULTA Beauty. It is made to protect the strands against damage and breakage, ensuring longer, fuller and more beautiful hair. You are ensured around 8 hours of visible fullness, even in high temperatures and equally high humidity. It can be used on wet or dry hair and should be left in, not rinsed out.
9. Earth’s Nectar Jojoba & Tea Tree Scalp Oil
Hair oils are great, as we had mentioned early on. Jojoba, and tea tree oils are probably among the best hair oils out there, great for just about everything that includes hydration, softening and ridding yourself of pesky fungi. As you can imagine, this particular product available from Sephora is great in combatting dandruff, controlling your scalp’s oil production, and supporting natural hair growth. It is completely natural, with no parabens, artificial colors, fragrance, mineral oils or petroleum products. The soothing essential oils are gentle on your skin and give you an exceptionally shiny finish.
10. Nioxin Hair Booster
An intensive leave-in hair growth treatment, this particular booster is on the expensive side, available from ULTA Beauty. It should be used on areas of most concern, such as the hairline, and the crown. It has a concentrated CoZyme-10 vitamin complex, keratin, and methyl nicotinate. It protects from damage and builds up thinning regions, while also providing a warming sensation.
11. Toppik Hair Building Fibers
You want to look like you have full hair instantly? This is probably your best bet to use, as the hair growth product boasts hair building fibers in a safe, natural and undetectable manner, all for under $25 from ULTA Beauty. It is made from pure organic keratin proteins, the same that can be found in human hair, using an electro-static charge to blend perfectly with your existing hair.
You can choose the one that matches your natural hair color, as it will not work on colored hair. The only way for the fibers to come out is by washing it out. Otherwise, it stays on rain or shine, through the day or night.
12. Bosley Hair Regrowth Treatment Regular Strength for Women
Containing monixil like one of the other hair growth products on this list, an FDA-approved ingredient that has been proven to effectively grow your hair, this treatment provides color protection as well as stopping hair loss. It is also anti-aging with DHT inhibitors. No sulfates, parabens, phthalates or animal products have been used in its making. Currently, it is available from ULTA Beauty.
