Hello Everyone,

I was reading this in another forum that I'm apart of, and there was thread regarding Cayenne Pepper mixed with extra virgin olive oil and it has shown to stimulate hair growth.  I was wondering if anyone here has tried this and if so what are your results?

I read that forum too. I'm not sure if it works but it sounds painful. I wouldn't want it to sting your eyes or cause scalp irritation.

I know what you mean, cmesweet (me----->) lol 

But I will def try it and I will post my results here.   I'll do it as a oil treatment with the cayenne pepper. This young lady said she noticed that her re-growth came in longer  and stronger in a little less then 2 months.

So we'll see.

What the cayenne does is stimulate blood flow to the area you apply it to. It can increase hair growth, however for many it also irritates your scalp and can be painful. The intensity of the pepper also depends on store bought or organic cayenne. I find that store bought is not as intense as the cayenne from the healthfood store.

Thanks honeydoo.  Do you use the cayenne pepper mix on you hair?

What are your results?
