Thanks creolesugarface! I've not started either one yet, but I think that's a good idea. I can either go for avocado oil, nice and heavy, or castor oil. I'll let y'all know how I get on!

those are both excellent choices

I massaged my mix in my scalp and hair today

I slathered on some cayenne oil and massaged my scalp before adding my mix of elasta qp dpr-11, honey, and coconut oil. I did my version of a steam cap and the dc on for about 2 hrs...I did that yesterday

I've fallen and I can't get up. I'm off the wagon. too much going on right now. I need to find time to do this. Otherwise, I know me, I got the itch to get my hair cut off. . .I'll do it if I don't grown it.

Good Luck to all you ladies on this challenge! I've used it straight from a seasoning shaker (plain cayenne pepper) into oil (leftover WGO), mixed it up in the WGO applicator bottle, and generously applied to scalp after a wash. Boy, did it burn! I liked the sensation, as I'm a Spicy Foodie anyway, but I don't have the time to do this challenge right now! I'm definitely writing it down to possibly start on my own at a later date.

Also, it wasn't hard to get out at all, but then again, my hair was relaxed bone straight at the time. IDK how it would work with all this transitioning NG! I do know that it was horrid getting the Ayurvedic Brahmi powder to rinse completely, as well as other herbal products like Motions CPR (herbs got stuck in my hair).

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR STARTING THIS CREOLESUGARFACE!

can i still join?

i hope so!

have started with the castor oil just in the last 2 months but adding cayenne pepper is an AWSOME idea!:drunk:

i just tried some on my thinner areas before my wash 3 days ago, but it didn't sting or burn like i've seen some ladies report.

sure hope i'm doing this right!

HHG!!:grin:

Hi creolesugarface and ladies, I did the cayenne and vodka mix, and let it sit, shaking occasionally over 3 days before using it. I read that the use with alcohol would make the mix dry into the scalp effectively. There was no stinging the first time, but I did it just before and steam, and that's when it tingled a bit, definatly not uncomfortable.

I've massaged it into my edges every other day, when I remember, no tingling though. I should say that after I massage in I then massage a little with avocado oil. Will continue with the mix, especially when I steam and dc under a dryer.

COME ON MS. HECHANGEDMYNAME! YOU CAN DO IT!!! STICK WITH IT AND MAKE THE TIME....JUST POP IT ON BEFORE YOU WASH:yep: if you are really stuck for time, just get a handfull and glob it all over your head...it'll get to the roots anyway and that might be a faster technique then parting and finger or applicator bottle applying....

as for me,i just read the ingredients on my cayenne pepper and it's mixed with sunflower oil and i read on here in another thread that sunflower oil does not penetrate. :wallbash:
so today i "made" some cayenne pepper oil....!
while boiling the water and oil to get it to mix, i threw in some fenugreek seeds, a garlic clove, some seasame seeds, some ginger powder, some horsetail, 3/4 of a small onion, and of course, 3 long stalks of fresh cayenne pepper (in boiling water with olive oil which does penetrate).

that mix smelt good enough to eat!:grin::lick::yep:

i can't wait to put it on my scalp tonight before my nightly massage..yes, i'm washing my hair tomorrow,lol!

Thanks for the boost. I plan to wash my hair maybe tomorrow so i hope that I'can put some on tomorrow before washing. But, the benefit is that from all the baggying, moisturizing, dc'ing, I can tell that my crown is gaining some strength. not sure on the length just yet though. I just did a mini cut on my hair recently so I will definitely be able to gauage how well my hair has grown by mid year and then again at end of year.

applying with an applicator bottle sounds like the best way
I have been doing it with my hands, and it seems like the cayenne stays on my hair more than my scalp sometimes, even though my hair is short. I will either use a dropper or one of my bottles with a pointed tip.

but here's an update on my progress (my curls are coming back! excuse the lint or thread that got stuck in my hair while I was asleep)








is anyone else seeing any results? I've noticed that my hair is smoother.

Your hair is so pretty!

I have an oil mixture marinating, will use it on next wash day. I will let you know when and if I see any results.

:woot:CREOLESUGARFACE, YOUR HAIR HAS REALLY GROWN OUT WONDERFULLY!!!!!!:dance7:

now, THAT'S A SUCCESS STORY!!!!!!:clapping::clapping::clapping:

AND IT'S SO SOFT AND SMOOTH LOOKING, TOO!!!!!:yay::yay::yay:

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!:bouncegre:trampolin:bouncy::cup::goodpost::bighug::congrats::headspin::nicethread::reddancer::bounceline:




and i MUST agree that this stuff works because i measured my hair last week, and am so happy to report that I HAD ONE, YES 1 INCH OF GROWTH IN JUST THREE WEEKS!!!

(i gotta find a way to get pictures up....am working on it even tho my hard drive is full...)

i almost could not believe it, especially because it didn't "look" like my hair had grown at all, but the measuring tape does not lie!

i'm sure that cayenne you started us doing is A MAJOR helper, plus i added some ginger to my "potion" ...ok, plus eo's, jbco, onion, horsetail, fenugreek, amla oil...but nothing creates that "tingle" like the CAYENNE PEPPER!

yes, as another member reported "it gets my scalp on fiya!" but it's just the tingle it needs to stimulate growth, like your progress report testifies and my measuring tape confirms!

THANKS AGAIN FOR STARTING THIS THREAD!!!!

I posted a link to this product within this thread. I suppose no one has, but I did order some and it should arrive by the end of the week, they have shipping delays due to snow. I will post what I think once it arrives.

Aggie,
Are you only mixing cayenne pepper and MN? If I read your post correctly, it looks like you're applying your mix and leaving it in without washing the next day? Is that right???:rolleyes:

I added cayenne pepper to my already mixed MN recipe and you are correct in that I haven't been washing it out after every application. I wash only once every 7-14 days now that I am so deep into my relaxer stretch. That's just wayyy too much work for me:nono:.

Thanks Aggie!!:grin: There's no way I can wash my hair every 2-3 days:nono:. I'm going to add the pepper to my current mix as well. One more question, are you using powder or liquid pepper???
