    My friend's little sister cut her hair close to her head and now it's down to her butt.

    She mixed olive oil and cayenne pepper in a bottle with a nozzle (like the WGO bottle) left it in her hair for one day and shampooed it out (she did this until her hair started grow like she wanted it to).

    Just thinking about it makes me want to go and get a glass of water. /images/graemlins/lachen70.gif I read somewhere that cayenne pepper (and also ginger) was good for stimulating hair growth.

    How often did she do this? That is, how many times per week/month?

    I do this sometimes. I mix a tablespoon of cayenne pepper with a cup of olive oil.

    I just did a search on just the word "cayenne" for posts older than 1 day and there are several threads that mention cayenne pepper, herbs, recipes, etc. Check it out! /images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Poohbear I haven't been consistent in using it. I've only used it a few times. I really just used it as a preshampoo treatment to open up my scalp pores. I can tell you that it does really tingle and heat your scalp though.

    I ate cayenne pepper and olive oil in my salad today... /images/graemlins/lick.gif Since cayenne stimulates circulation, it sounds like a great stimulant for the scalp. /images/graemlins/smile.gif
    It's also what pepper spray is made out of so if I can do this without sneezing, that would be great! /images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Yes, if we carefully apply regular cayenne pepper mixed with oil and rinse carefully, it should be ok.

    That reminds me, I wonder what strength of cayenne pepper that person used or if it was the regular, store bought kind. At some health stores, you can buy hot and extra hot cayenne pepper.

    And this:

    Cayenne Pepper Hair Tonic - the ability of this herb to irritate the skin, increase blood flow and stimulate cell division is well known.

    Recipe: mix four ounces of cayenne pepper with one pint of one hundred proof vodka or pure alcohol diluted with 20 percent distilled water. Let it stand for two weeks, shaking the mixture once each day. Strain through several layers of fine cloth until the mixture is free of pepper. Once or twice a day, rub a small amount onto the thinning areas of the scalp.

    Everytime she washed her hair which was 2 to 3 times per week.

    Yes, store bought cayenne pepper, and she mixed at least two table spoons into a bottle about the size of the WGO bottle. Oh, and it took less than almost two years for her hair to grow to her butt.

    I think I answered all of your questions.
