Ugh, waiting. Who has time for that? Okay, it's not like we always have a choice. Most things in life require patience, and growing out your hair can be one of them. But if your hair isn't growing as fast as you'd like, or if it doesn't feel healthy, I'm here for you. Topical products, like hair oils full of essential vitamins and nutrients, can jumpstart your strands and make everything better. Length? Check. Thickness? Check. Shine? Check. Honestly, you can't go wrong with implementing a good hair oil in your routine.
