Hair Growth Is Determined Primarily By Genetics
Although the ingredients in Helen's different hair healthy soups are chock full of known ingredients helpful to growing healthy hair.
Always Consult With Your Primary Health Care Physician
There are very few topical treatments which have scientific backing when it comes to hair growth aside from Rogaine, prescription Procepia pills, and other treatments that might be prescribed by your medica professional. The rate your hair grows is primarily determined by genetics.
As always, proceed at your own risk.
Always check with your primary health care physician before you take any type of herbs or supplements which may impact any health care programs you're currently following.
