Scattered across the internet are thousands of testimonials from people with long, lustrous manes claiming they alone know the secret to speeding up hair growth. Raw eggs, orange puree, avocado, aloe gel—there is no shortage of grocery items you’ve been told to plop on your scalp if you want longer, thicker hair. But if you’re looking for a tried-and-true technique to strengthen your follicles, this landscape of hair science can feel overwhelming. Luckily, Nutrafol—maker of the uber-popular supplement for hair growth—has launched a hair-growth serum that you can feel confident will work

The Nutrafol Growth Activator ($69) is a new development in scalp support. The serum is infused with the exomes of an ashwagandha plant. You may know this plant by its other commonly used names: Indian ginseng, poison gooseberry, or winter cherry. It’s an evergreen shrub native to India, the Middle East, and parts of Africa, known for boosting cell renewal and reducing the effects of stress.

Ashwagandha seed extract is a primary ingredient in Nutrafol’s hair growth supplement and has been retrofitted for optimal use in their serum. The new delivery system has broken down the ashwagandha RNA, lipids, and proteins so that they are 150 times smaller and able to work their magic inside tiny hair follicles.

In addition to ashwagandha exomes, the Nutrafol Growth Activator is made with green tea for thicker-looking strands, sea buckthorn, and moringa to hydrate the scalp and pea sprouts to minimize breakage—a witches brew that is destined to bring you closer to your hair goals.

The lightweight formula is proven to cultivate thicker, stronger hair within three months—and during a clinical study in which participants used the Growth Activator daily, 87 percent of people saw healthier hair after just 30 days. Now, if you’re a greasy monster like myself, you may be wondering whether it’s wise to apply a serum to your roots every day. But the Growth Activator absorbs into the scalp, and it absorbs fast.

It comes in a vial with a dropper included. For best use, section your hair and apply the serum directly to the scalp. Use just enough to cover the areas you suspect are thinning with a very light coat of the serum and massage it into your scalp with your fingertips. If all goes well, you should be able to style your hair normally and your shampoo cycle should not have to change. This way, you can save your avocadoes and eggs for breakfast, instead.
