1. Cayenne pepper with olive oil(affiliate link)
This concoction is the most common way of using cayenne pepper as a growth aid. One of the first reports of cayenne pepper working as a growth aid came from a lady on LHCF who shared a story on how one of her relatives went from a shaved scalp to hair down her back. Now, there wasn’t any evidence that was shown to prove this story but assuming that we take it at face value…
To make the concoction, mix two tablespoons of powdered cayenne pepper into 4 oz. of olive oil(affiliate link) (she had originally described the bottle as being around the size of a bottle of Wild Growth Hair Oil(affiliate link), which is 4 oz.).
Shake it up to mix up the ingredients and then apply it to your hair and scalp on one day and then the next day you should shampoo out the cayenne mixture. Alternatively you can use the mixture as a prepoo treatment and shampoo it out after an hour or two.
2. Cayenne pepper tonic
This is a more “classic” version of the cayenne growth aid. This one involves liquor so for my ladies who likes a good drink every now and then, please make the tonic first or heck take a drink beforehand just in case you need to numb out the tingling.
To make this tonic, you will need 4-6 medium sized fresh Cayenne Peppers and 50 ml of cognac or vodka or 90% alcohol. First, you should start by cutting the pepper into pieces and place them into a bottle.
Then fully cover the peppers by adding cognac, vodka or alcohol. Lastly, shake and store the mixture in a dark place away from sunlight for about two weeks for the juices from the peppers to seep into the alcohol. The alcohol with have a reddish tinge after the time has passed.
Once ready, strain the mixture and then dilute it with water. The ratio should be approximately 40:20. This can be applied before or after washing your hair, but is recommended to be applied before shampoo so that the tingling effect won’t be as harsh and so that if it does become a nuisance , you can shampoo it out straight away and will not have to worry about the double manipulation during wash day.
How often do you use it?
This seems to vary from woman to woman. Those using the mixtures as prepoos will obviously just use it on wash day which is either once or twice a week. There are those women however who use their mixtures two to three times a week (without washes) and further some have reported to using theirs once or twice a day!
I suppose it’s safe to assume that “how often” will completely depend on the person using it and whether the slight irritation from the cayenne really bothers you or not. There are those who seem to enjoy the tingling sensation but some have reported feeling nothing at all!
Are there any side effects?
For most women there have not been any negative side effects. The only expected effect is the tingling that most would experience. If you feel really uncomfortable from the tingling sensation, rinse out right away and for goodness sake try not to get any mixture in your eyes!
So that’s it girls, if you try this put please let us know how it went in the comments below.
