Hi, I’m Laura – the creator of The Hair Fuel.
When I was 17 years old (I’m now 30!), I had a bad perm which cost me a third of my hair. The 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 with not one, but three degrees, I dived into my own research into the science and biology of hair growth and coupled that with home remedies approach – thanks to growing up with my Russian grandma*. Eventually, I came across a combination of ingredients and a chemical reaction – that made sense to ME.
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, and the continued demand for the formula, 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 masses.
I harnessed my years in management consulting to streamline logistics and experience in graphic design, to create a beautiful package, the entire Hair Growth Kit** or Hair Growth System** 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.
* – “Russian grandma” approach to beauty means you harness the power of nature and hundreds of years of homemade recipes and potions. In addition, I did actually have a Russian grandma!
