It's very easy to apply, if you use more than the recomended2 squirts.

To be honest, I've been using it half heartedly -I'm so worried after gearing problems some other peiple had . But there us absolutely no change, for good or for bad.

How easy are you finding RapidHair to use? Very easy - no problems at all

Have you started seeing results from using RapidHair? I have. I thought it was just wishful thinking, but I took my hair down in work the other day as I was leaving (normally scrapped back) and about 3 people asked me what I had done to my hair as it looked lovely.

Now you have been using RapidHair for a few weeks - please let us know...

~ How easy are you finding RapidHair to use? (eg ease of following the instructions, how it is to actually apply)

I am finding it very easy to use, I simply use 2 pumps of product on my fingers and massage it in.

~ Have you started seeing results from using RapidHair?

Yes definitely, my husband said to me the other day how shiny and healthy my hair was looking, and men never notice these things!

Midgetm Sun 06-Apr-14 22:30:18

Easy to use: easy but the two pumps thing is simply annoying. I would be miffed if I had paid. If you apply it directly to scalp as instructed it is bear on impossible to apply to whole scalp.

Difference: yes probably a bit but not over all massively so because of poor coverage of 2 pumps. I often use more than 2 pumps because the rules annoy me.

~ How easy are you finding RapidHair to use? (eg ease of following the instructions, how it is to actually apply)
I struggle to get it on my scalp rather than my hair so the 2 pumps dont feel like they are covering what is needed. Instructions are few - I could do with some tips on the best way to apply.

~ Have you started seeing results from using RapidHair?
My hair feels softer and the wispy regrowth from it falling out after pregnancy is less frizzy.

fitflopqueen Tue 08-Apr-14 08:15:02

Ease of use, yes easy to use but as others have said not 100% confident am getting the 2 pumps worth direct to scalp.

Results so far, well nothing noticeable.

Mine stopped working this morning. There's still plenty of liquid left in it, but it's just not squirting out. As we are only 35 days in this isn't a good advertisement for it really.

~ How easy are you finding RapidHair to use? (eg ease of following the instructions, how it is to actually apply)

It has become easier - but I am still concerned that it is difficult to achieve an even coverage on scalp

~ Have you started seeing results from using RapidHair?

My hair looks fuller but fluffier.
I was hoping for smoother or glossier as well. I don't like fluffy hair unfortunately a spend a long time straightening it out!

crazykat Sun 13-Apr-14 16:10:03

How easy is rapid hair to use - its pretty easy to use but is difficult to get full coverage with two pumps. My hair is thin but quite long and I have to put the product on my hands and then on my scalp, a first I followed the instructions and put it directly on my scalp but it was impossible to get full coverage that way - it would have needed at least twice the amount of product.

Have you noticed a difference - not really, like others I was hoping I'd see a difference by now and that my hair would look fuller/thicker. It does look like it has slightly more volume but no more than when I use a volumising shampoo.

majjsu Sun 13-Apr-14 21:31:51

Ease of use - it is very easy to use. The 2 pumps of mousse are quite small and only cover part of the scalp, not all.

Results so far - I do have to say I have noticed a difference. My hair is very much shinier, less flyaway and does appear somewhat thicker all over.

Koe44 Mon 14-Apr-14 17:46:26

How easy is rapid hair to use. Very easy to use however like a lot of said 2 pumps doesn't seem enough. I try to concentrate on different areas everyday so it gives good coverage overall.

Have you noticed a difference. Not really, if anything my hair is dropping out more than before.

magentastardust Sun 20-Apr-14 00:09:18

Ease of use - easy enough to use, but as others are saying I don't feel like I am getting full coverage with 2 pumps.

Results so far - I haven't really noticed a difference so far.

Hello - have now added the final Qs to the OP above (here they are as wellsmile
Last lot of questions - testers please share your thoughts on the below:

~ What are the key improvements you have seen from using RapidHair?
~ Were the results as you’d expected?
~ If it came up in conversation, do you think you'd recommend RapidHair to a friend?
~ Has anyone noticed any change in your hair?

Good luck with the prize draw.

~ What are the key improvements you have seen from using RapidHair?
None, I'm afraid.

~ Were the results as you’d expected?
I was pretty sceptical if I'm honest, but it's really done nothing for me at all so I'm disappointed.

~ If it came up in conversation, do you think you'd recommend RapidHair to a friend?
Absolutely not.

~ Has anyone noticed any change in your hair?
Nope.

adelinehillman Wed 07-May-14 14:02:04

What are the key improvements you have seen from using RapidHair?
Nothing dramatic. It feels thicker and smoother at the roots, but if I don't use it the thickness goes.

~ Were the results as you�d expected?
I think I was (and always am) more hopeful and ofetn left disappointed by products. I would have liked to have seen an increased growth in my hair and genuine improvement of the area.

~ If it came up in conversation, do you think you'd recommend RapidHair to a friend?
No, not for the price

~ Has anyone noticed any change in your hair?
No. But that could be because I still wear it tied back as I don't like it down unless its styled (which I don't often have time to do).

ishouldcocoa Wed 07-May-14 15:35:36

~ What are the key improvements you have seen from using RapidHair?

My hair has got softer, but only in the places that I was able to apply RapidHair! The 2 squirts were no where near enough to cover my scalp.

~ Were the results as you’d expected?
I suppose so, but considering the price, I'd have expected more.

~ If it came up in conversation, do you think you'd recommend RapidHair to a friend?

Probably not. Sorry!

~ Has anyone noticed any change in your hair?
No they haven't sad

~ What are the key improvements you have seen from using RapidHair?
Absolutely none. No additional thickness or softness. I'm really disappointed.

~ Were the results as you’d expected?
No. For the price, and for the fact that the product looked "clinical" rather than "salon", if that makes sense, is expected a veritable mane. My bottle ran out of propellant a few weeks ago when there was lots of product still left in the bottle - I'd have been thoroughly annoyed if I'd paid for it!

~ If it came up in conversation, do you think you'd recommend RapidHair to a friend?
No, quite the opposite. Sorry.

~ Has anyone noticed any change in your hair?
No.

bumbumsmummy Wed 07-May-14 17:11:26

~ What are the key improvements you have seen from using RapidHair?
texture and it felt thicker where it was applied
~ Were the results as you’d expected?
I didnt really have any but it did make my hair more managable and better at taking up product which was un expected but very welcome
~ If it came up in conversation, do you think you'd recommend RapidHair to a friend?
probably not too small
~ Has anyone noticed any change in your hair?
nope

500internalerror Wed 07-May-14 17:29:11

I didn't use it as recommended - not every day - br aide I bottled out after hearing about hair loss. I'd say I used it 70% of what I should. I haven't seen any results at all. For this reason I wouldn't suggest my friends try it - it's also very expensive!

plum100 Wed 07-May-14 17:44:04

What are the key improvements you have seen from using RapidHair?
None I'm afraid, I really do try and see the difference but my hair is still just as fine and wild as before.
Maybe I was expecting too much

~ Were the results as you’d expected?

NO

~ If it came up in conversation, do you think you'd recommend RapidHair to a friend?

No - I don't think I would , even if it was cheaper - I hate to say it but it seems a bit of a pointless product - I hate to think how much has been spent on producing it.

~ Has anyone noticed any change in your hair?

no - hubby says its still as bad as ever.

fitflopqueen Wed 07-May-14 17:57:33

~ What are the key improvements you have seen from using RapidHair?
No noticeable change

~ Were the results as you’d expected?
No, didn't meet expectations, no change in overall thickness or condition.

~ If it came up in conversation, do you think you'd recommend RapidHair to a friend?
It may have better results on someone else with thinner hair but would advise I hadn't noticed any difference

~ Has anyone noticed any change in your hair?
Not at all.

lankyesme Wed 07-May-14 19:37:39

What are the key improvements you have seen from using RapidHair?
No change
~ Were the results as you’d expected?
No, sadly very disappointed
~ If it came up in conversation, do you think you'd recommend RapidHair to a friend?
No definitely not.
~ Has anyone noticed any change in your hair?
No, am very disapointed.

What are the key improvements you have seen from using RapidHair?
My hair felt a bit thicker, more manageable and smoother.

Were the results as you’d expected?
No - given the price of the product, and the positive reviews of Rapidlash, I'd expected something a bit more dramatic.

If it came up in conversation, do you think you'd recommend RapidHair to a friend?
No - there was a difference, but at £35 a month the difference was just too subtle. My hair definitely looked in better condition to other people, but no one really noticed any difference in volume.

Has anyone noticed any change in your hair?
As I posted up thread, people did notice there was something different about my hair but not what. I asked my husband and my best friend specifically if they noticed any difference in how think my hair looked and both said no...

Overall, I would say that my fine flyaway hair looked better, more manageable and more groomed with minimal effort, but unfortunately, for me, the outlay was too much for these results.

LindseyandMatthew Wed 07-May-14 21:06:37

~What are the key improvements you have seen from using RapidHair?
My hair has been alot shinier and easier to manage.

~ Were the results as you’d expected?
I don't really know what I was expecting, I thought it would make my hair appear healthier so in that way I think it did meet my expectations.

~ If it came up in conversation, do you think you'd recommend RapidHair to a friend?
I don't think so but only because I think it is very expensive for what it is.

~ Has anyone noticed any change in your hair?
Just my husband really he said my hair was very shiny, apart from that no one really commented.
