fast hair growth sham­poo and con­di­tioner, two 300ml bot­tles, £33.99, live­bet­ter­with.

CLAIM: These con­tain vi­ta­mins, pro­teins and herbs, which the maker says ‘en­cour­age blood flow to the scalp for faster hair growth’.

EX­PERT VER­DICT: ‘In­de­pen­dent re­search found that the pro­teins here — cys­tine, cys­teine and me­thio­n­ine — can help with hair growth if you are de­fi­cient in these,’ says Iain Sal­lis. ‘But these stud­ies were done with oral sup­ple­ments. I’ve not seen good ev­i­dence to show a sham­poo can make your hair grow faster. I can’t find de­tails on the maker’s tri­als in which it claims that “100 per cent of users had in­creased hair growth af­ter 84 days” — even the links on its own web­site don’t work.’
