F.A.S.T. Shampoo & Conditioner: Review & Giveaway!

This post had been a month in the works and I am excited to finally be reviewing and hosting a giveaway for F.A.S.T. Shampoo and Conditioner, a product by Nisim International. I know, I know. Some of you are probably asking yourselves, "Ginny, why on earth do you need to use a shampoo that makes your hair grow faster? Your hair is already very long." Truth be told, for over twenty years now my goal has been to grow my hair out just long enough to brush the chair seat when I sit down and I have never been able to get it there. Those last few inches have eluded me for far too long. When I was approached by Nisim International, a little over a month ago, and offered a free sample in order to try it out for a review, I was all in. Besides, what did I have to loose?...Well maybe just my hair...but that didn't happen. Don't you worry.

F.A.S.T. stands for Fortified Amino Scalp Therapy. This product claims to help your hair grow up to two times faster than average. Our hair normally grows approximately a half inch each month. After using this shampoo and conditioner combo for one month, I'd say it works! My hair grew somewhere between three quarters on an inch to an inch in one months time. Here are my before and after pictures:

I had my hair trimmed and dyed the day before I began using F.A.S.T. As you can see, there was significant hair growth. I would also like to add that F.A.S.T. did not make my red hair dye fade any faster than any other shampoo treatments I have used in the past. I feel like the amount of fading was completely normal, in my case. F.A.S.T. also smells nice and it did not dry out my hair in any way. My hair still feels super soft and healthy. I am quite pleased with the results of this product. I received one 10 ounce bottle of both the shampoo and the conditioner and with the amount of hair that I have, these both lasted me the month and there is hardly any left in them. Someone with shorter hair than I would definitely get more time out of their purchase.

Here is a blurb from their website:

Hormel Rev Wraps

Reviewing new Hormel Rev Wraps is my first campaign for a company called BzzAgent. I received one free wrap for my teen to try so I can tell you all what we think of them. First impressions? Easy. Inexpensive. Yum!

Here's my handsome teen deciding which flavor to try first. He went with #8 Spicy Italian Style. He liked it. He really, really liked it! At first I think he was just humoring me but after the first couple bites he was making yummy noises. Score! Then yesterday, after taking care of the kids all morning, I realized I had forgotten to eat lunch...again. So I grabbed a #2 Ham & Cheese and was pleasantly surprised. Not bad...and WAY better than those old Hot Pockets that I ate as a teen. This got me wondering how the nutritional facts compared between these two products, so I did some online research and here's what I found:

The Rev Wrap has less calories and carbs but more sodium. My guess is this is because they are not frozen. You'll find them in the sandwich meat section of your local grocery store. The fat is almost identical and the protein is higher. All in all, as a mom, I would choose a Rev Wrap over a Hot pocket for my kids any day of the week.
