“Some research shows that hair loss during menopause is the result of a hormonal imbalance, specifically a lower production of estrogen and progesterone,” explained Yael Halaas, a facial plastic surgeon who specialises in hair loss to Women’s Health. 

But that’s not to say you can’t have long and luscious hair in your 50s and 60s, especially with a little help. As well as eating the right foods, going for regular trims and keeping your locks in good condition with nourishing products, this all-natural, vegan hair growth mask kit promises to supercharge your follicles for thicker, longer hair in just four weeks. 

Hair Fuel is an at-home mask kit, made of entirely natural ingredients. It promises to accelerate hair growth, reduce hair loss and strengthen follicles – from the roots. Packages are delivered to your door, so all you need to do is carve out 45 minutes a week to let the hair mask work its follicle-boosting magic. 

The one-month pack consists of one pack per week, which will take around an hour out of your evening for mixing, application and the time it takes for the mask to work. 

Founder of Hair Fuel Laura, advises scheduling in a ‘self-care night’ to make the 45-minute treatment more of an event. 

In between treatments, Laura suggests to keep follicles stimulated. She says, “If you’re keen to support your hair growth during the evenings you are not using The Hair Fuel mask, we suggest doing a light scalp massage in between your mask applications, or perhaps spend one or two nights brushing your hair 100 times in all directions to support the blood flow. Your hair follicles will thank you.”

The Hair Fuel masks improve blood flow to your scalp and hair follicles. The blood vessels attached to the derma papillae – the hair root – carry nutrients and oxygen to the hair, supporting its growth.  You might feel a tingling, warming or slightly burning sensation on your scalp – a sign that the product is activated.

The response to Hair Fuel thus far have been positive, with 98 per cent of those trialled reporting that Hair Fuel boosted hair growth from the roots. On the brand’s website, the testimonials show those trialling the process to have had some good results.

You can feel the warmth of the product on your scalp and it didn’t cause any irritations. Simple to use, easy to rinse out and is great. Recommended to all.’

‘I can see the difference. My hair looks better now and stronger. Looks healthy – a lot of people were asking me what I did to make my hair look so nice and long. I’m happy that I had a chance to try this product :)’

‘I received this trial 2 months after giving birth where my hair had started to fall out, using this has slowed down the falling out stage and although still coming out it is 80% improved!! Excellent.’
