    I was just reading the website for the info on the Cayenne Olive Oil Combo, I see that it says:

    "Applying any product that contains capsaicin extracted from cayenne pepper -will first of all stimulate or cause the skin to glow fiery red (due to the irritation of mucous membrane) and subsequently, decreases the intensity of visceral pain in the area of where the product was applied. Home-made cayenne oil could be prepared by infusing 25g of dried ground cayenne pepper in 500ml of vegetable oil such as sunflower, olive oil, etc for about 10 to 14 days. The oil is warmed daily under a very low heat. Other rubefacient herbs such as cloves, mustard, ginger, black pepper could be added if desired."

    I sometimes use a product called Capsaicin when I have muscle soreness from training, it's a topical product that gets hot after application (kinda like BenGay or Icy Hot).... Notice I didn't say warm, HOT!! If this cayenne/oil gets anywhere near as hot as the Capsaicin...I would STRONGLY recommend a patch test prior to using it all over your head. The capsaicin BURNS....like you feel your skin is on fire....and it doesn't go away sometimes for like an hour....

    My training partner has a very high tolerance for pain and he is almost literally afraid of the stuff! So, with that having been said, be careful ladies!!

    I'll wait for some reviews before I try this one :nono:.

    I havent read thru all theses posts but cayenne is used with other herbs as a catalyst to increase their effects. Most herb books recommend getting it from a health food store as it is less likely to have been roasted or of the "hot" variety.

    I use something similar for pain as well. Once rubbed my eye with it on my hand...GOOD LORD! :eek: I wanted to die. Be careful ladies.

    LaNecia, how's the training? PM me.

    Gave me chills just thinking about it, I put some on my son's arm cause he had a little soreness....I didn't know! I should have used it on myself FIRST! He said it was hot and NOTHING worked to cool the skin....I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND until I used it myself a week later.

    I STILL apologize to him. :(

    Here's a scalp stimulator recipe I posted on the hair recipes board (along with other stuff) that I got out of one of my essential oil/aromatherapy books.

    Scalp Stimulator
    This stimulates the scalp is extremely effective for men’s hair growth.

    1 teaspoon Vodka
    3 drops Rosemary
    5 drops Lavendar

    Mix, then add to 1 tablespoon water

    Dip fingertips into the mixture and massage well into the scalp. It smells nice and can be put onto the hair any time that is convenient for you, not necessarily before or after washing the hair.

    Kaddy that sounds like one of the recipes from the "Grow hair fast" book I read at Barnes and Noble, they had a lot of recipes that involved liquor I was thinking the author was a lush or something :lol:

    I tried it for a month after first reading that post. It stung the first time I did it but I guess my scalp got used to it and when doing a CW I rinse the stuff out of my hair after like 5 mins. It didn't really do anything for me, I don't know I guess my hair didn't like it :ohwell:

    That's funny that all the recipes involved liquor. The book I have is just a book that discusses the many uses of essential oils.

    U tried the recipe I posted for a month? I am confused because I just posted so I don't know if you are saying you tried this recipe for a month or the cayenne one for a month.

    I am thinking it is stimulating the scalp to help increase hair growth. Maybe it words better if not rinsed out. :scratchch

    Milk is known to neutralize the burning effect of capsaicin. If your skin or scalp burns from this try rinsing the area with milk.

    Bumping.
    Giving updates is a very good idea. We should make it a rule.
    Did anyone see results using this method. I have a bottle of olive oil and some cayenne pepper. I need to know if I should go ahead and mix it up. TIA

    It works!!! It's ironic how this thread was bumped b/c I was going to post a new thread today. I have been doing it for 2 months now. There is major growth. I can kick myself because when I read this post I didn't believe it would work. :wallbash:So I didn't take any pictures. I just mixed one tbls. of cayenne pepper with one cup of EVOO. I would drench my scalp w/ it in the morning, I would wash my hair that night. I could feel the tingling but it didn't bother me. One day I forgot to put in the oil so I deep conditioned w/ it. DEFINITE NO NO!!!:eek: It was worse than a perm being left in too long. I wish I had pictures to prove to you guys that is does work. I also think you need to be consistent w/ it. I do now out of habit. I am 9 weeks post relaxer so I'm not combing through my hair for fear of breakage. When I relax I promise I'll take pictures.

    Great thread... I think I'd be too scared to try it though as my skin gets irritated easily sometimes.

    I think I'll be trying this recipe when I wash once a month. I think this is better for people that wash more often.

    I've tried it twice. I've actually given up the glover's mane/sulphur 8 challenge to try this one. I've used the oil pepper mix two nights in a row, but my scalp isn't burning or tingling...why not? I used more than enough cayenne pepper and oil. What is wrong with my scalp??

    Same thing happened to me. No tingle. I tried it once, and moved on.

    I tried this last week. The only area that tingled was the nape area. Believe me, I used a lot of ground cayenne pepper. I threw the rest away.

    Ladies,

    Did you try a patch test? If it tingles or burns the inside of your arm or elbow, it should have the same effect on your head. If it doesn't, you may have a clogged scalp (buildup). If this is the case try exfoliating with a soft tooth brush, shampoo, baking soda and a little peppermint oil.

    If the patch test doesn't make the arm tingle then maybe it isn't for you. It is pretty hard to get buildup on the arms. LOL :) HHG!

    Can you use this everyday as part of your moisturizing process. In other words I want to put it in my hair but I do not want to rinse it out. I wash 2x week so I like to put little in each night in place of my other oil. Or is it meant to be washed out. Just trying to figure how to do this. Please help!! :)

    There's a product called Hair Rush that containes cayenne pepper and other goodies. I'm not sure if this was posted earlier but you can get it from here:
    http://www.vitaminshoppe.com.

    It comes in a small 2oz. bottle for about 14.95. Wow, expensive right.
