    Sorry I’m not taking no cold ass shower or putting cold water on my head. Ppl just desperate to have long hair they’ll go to any extreme. Next thing you know cow manure will grow your hair long ctfu. God makes your hair grow! Eat right and drink water. Exercise and massage your scalp. Take biotin and take care of your hair! Wash and deep condition. Trim when necessary and keep your hair moisturized.

      I thought that the cuticle needs to be open for your conditioner and oils to penetrate. If you rinse your hair in cold water before you apply your leave in and oils how can they penetrate? I would try it if someone can explain that to me. Wouldn’t the cold water close your cuticle?

    moisturize, oil and conditioner, clip ends period. If my hair grow, it grows, if it don’t, it don’t. It’s a slow process and I’m ok with that. I do rinse my hair with cold water, but no cold showers.

    Been taking it for eleven yrs after i went back to Caribbeans, and my hair never been better. Back in France. I never went back to hot shower. Never caught a cold. But guess its not for everyone

    I took cold showers for the first 18 yrs of my life because my dad would refuse to turn on the water heater until after Christmas or whenever the water froze in the pipe. My hair still shed and had issues growing properly.

    It makes sense. When I go to the hair dresser, that is what they do. They wash my hair with warm, heat deep condition, then cold water rinse out. My hair doesn’t shed after. If I do it myself, I only use warm water and just put a shower cap on with deep conditioner and it will shed.

    I hate cold showers! Having said that as a hair lover and entrepreneur I might try this. It’s gonna take a while to work up the courage though, so it might not happen this year…lol
