Hi, I’m Laura – the creator of The Hair Fuel.

When I was 17 years old (I’m now 31!), I had a bad perm which cost me one third of my hair. My hair follicles were so damaged that my hair just wouldn’t grow. I tried everything: from horse shampoo, expensive medication, including Minoxidil to professional treatments, but nothing worked.

Since I’m a proud nerd, I took a deep dive with my own research into the science and biology of hair growth. But it is thanks to my Russian grandma and upbringing that instilled in me “nature 1st, 2nd and 3rd” approach to beauty and health. It all converged at the hair follicle: not trimming, not treating the lengths – but blood flow and scalp. And – I wanted to use only natural ingredients.

After many at-home trials (and many dirty kitchen clean-ups), I created a formulation that I could FEEL working on my scalp, and see results in just a few weeks. For over a decade since, I’ve been using this hair formula to support my adventurous haircuts. Without sounding too cheesy – I was never afraid of a bad haircut since…

Upon sharing my hair mask formulation with friends, who all reported improved hair growth, I decided to work with a laboratory in Devon, UK to enhance the formulation with additional, hard-to-source natural ingredients and produce larger quantities to share with the people who really need it.

It took almost two years to streamline manufacturing and logistics to create our Hair Growth Kit – to have it delivered to YOUR doorstep at YOUR convenience so you can grow YOUR hair, too.

I hope you enjoy the product, for I know how disheartening this can be to lose the hair you once had, or wistfully sigh at the hair of others. I’ve been there. I feel you. You’re here now – so it will be okay.

Lastly, I have logged my progress of building out The Hair Fuel in a few live updates and episodes where I shared my journey of creating the brand, which you can take a look at in here.

Love,
Laura

Our Values

Sustainability

We love our Earth and work hard to ensure that our product is 100% sustainable: whether by using recycled materials or materials that are fully recyclable, reusable or biodegradable, minimising negative impact our product has on the planet and maximising the positive impact wherever and however we can.

The Hair Fuel mask is fully biodegradable and cruelty-free. The sachets is the only part of our packaging we have not yet resolved how to recycle. However, in certain countries a zero-waste collection services are available via TerraCycle.

Mindfulness

At The Hair Fuel we recognise the value of being mindful. The way we see it – be mindful first and everything else second. Which is why self-care and self-love that feature in our content are ingrained in our ethos. In order to show up as your best self to your loved ones and to the rest of the world, you have to meet yourself and – you have to fall in love with yourself.

A quote we go by is: “You cannot hate yourself into a version of you that you can love”. Therefore The Hair Fuel is set to inspire our customer to take better care of themselves by having a dedicating “date” in a week where they can attend to their soulful needs.

Joy

We love to laugh at The Hair Fuel. Laughter is healing and what a better indication of good times than wholehearted laugher? We embrace our silly selves, embrace our humanity with a light heart – and we invite you to do the same. We firmly believe that most things that people do, should fill them with joy – therefore it only made sense joy would be one of our core values.

(Besides, how can you not embrace your silly self when wearing our shower cap and a beanie?)
