Can I use treatments targetted for hair-loss to make my hair grown faster?
My beautician recently told me to use a hair loss product (Hair A-gain) on my eyebrows to help grow them out as they’re a little over-plucked. As I’ve been trying to grow my hair for ages, I thought perhaps I could also use it on my head to stimulate growth. However, I’m worried that the product will damage my hair seeing as it’s made for people suffering from actual hair loss, so could be really harsh.
Has anyone ever used something similar to stimulate growth when they’re not actually suffering from hair loss? I can’t find anything on the beauty forums, so I’m hoping someone here might have some information/ experiences to share.

Nioxin is more than just for thinning hair. I don’t know why your hair is falling out, it could be a number of things including the fact that you just started noticing this… Most people lose about 100 hairs a day. Anyways, Nioxin is a great line for everyday use. They have shampoos and conditioners, scalp treatments, styling products… The works. It keeps your hair healthy and is one of the best haircare lines I know of.
