Cayenne pepper is spicy and creates a tingling sensation on the scalp, which is thought to stimulate the hair follicles and promote new growth.
1 cup of extra virgin olive oil (or another carrier oil of your choice, such as sesame, almond, grapeseed oil, etc)
1 tbsp (level measured) of cayenne pepper
This mixture is also known to be affective on dandruff.
- Warm the oil (not too hot) add the pepper, mix and massage onto the scalp for at least 10 minutes.
- Cover with a shower cap or plastic bag and wrap with a towel
- Leave on overnight (or use this mixture during the day. Leave it on for a period of your choice.)
- Shampoo or rinse in the morning (This is optional, since some people prefer to leave it on the hair and dab the excess moisture away, with a towel or old t-shirt.)
- Use once or twice a week or as often as you like.
Version 2 - Hair Tonic
A fifth of vodka
3 ounces of cayenne pepper
- Add the cayenne pepper to the vodka, mix and leave in a cool, dark place for at least two weeks.
- After two weeks shake the mixture
- Rub some into the scalp once or twice a week. (Can be used daily - optional)
- Keep your tonic stored in a bottle and cool area, away from direct sunlight.
