Us girls are always looking for hair growth remedies and supplements to give us healthy long locs. Often, many newbies and veterans alike will decide to incorporate a Biotin supplements into their diet to achieve long healthy hair; But what if I told you that there is something better? Something that does not have the side effects that comes with taking Biotin like the increase in skin breakouts that most of us complain about.
I took some time to research sulfur powder and how to use it and most importantly, why we should use it. The use of sulfur powder is something relatively new to me, so I had to make sure I had all my ducks in a row before presenting this to your lovely ladies.
Sulfur powder is a very important compound that most humans need. We need sulfur to improve our skin conditions, for scalp health, and joint functionality especially if you suffer from arthritis, along with other great health benefits. According to Eric Boon at www.usesof.net,
“Sulfur is effective because of its keratolytic, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.”
That alone makes it very popular as a hair growth supplement, great for scalp therapy and the holy grail for hair loss. When purchasing Sulfur Powder make sure to get ‘Sublimed Sulfur Powder‘ and this you can easily find on Amazon and some Trader Joe stores.
Believe it or not, we use products containing sulfur powder every day. Just go and check the ingredients of your lotions, acne treatments, dandruff shampoos and eczema or psoriasis medications; you will find sulfur somewhere on the list. During my research, I found out that sulfur compounds are the biggest problem solvers for skin conditions such as eczema, dandruff and acne.
I suffer from eczema, and spend tons of money on ointments, shampoos and lotions for my skin and scalp. So I was excited that I could possibly limit my pharmacy visits by making a DIY Sulfur scalp oil that will improve my scalp’s health, stimulate growth and I could also use on my entire body.
Before making the oil I did check with my doctor first because for one I am currently pregnant and I was worried it might not be safe for me to use or mix this powder if not prescribed. Thankfully I was able to ask the doctor questions and I was told that it is perfectly safe and also very effective. We always advise that you do the same thing when trying something new that you might want to mix at home.
The doctor went on to explain that Selenium Sulfide, which is the active ingredient used in dandruff and scalp eczema shampoos are sulfur compounds so making your own sulfur hair growth oil and scalp treatment with sublimed sulfur powder is beneficial as long as you use a small amount of the sulfur powder in your mixtures.
