How To Use Chilli Oil For Hair Growth

There are many oils which promotes hair growth on the market, castor oil being one of them, and unless you try them you’ll never know if these work for you. Mother nature has provided us with so much natural resources but today, we’re going to focus on chilli oil.

Chilli oil contains capsaicin which is an active ingredient in the chilli that is said to promote hair growth. A Japanese study has demonstrated that chilli worked for patients with alopecia. 

The reason being is that capsaicin activates certain receptors under the skin which helps increase the production of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). IGF-1 is a hormone that is similar to insulin, in structure and function. Basically, this protein helps in the process of cells reproduction and regeneration. IGF-1 also plays a role in the body’s creation of hair which is why it is recommended for hair growth.

If you want it to give it a go, please make sure to apply the oil on a small surface before, like any other products. People with a sensitive scalp might suffer from burning, irritation or/and inflammation.

New Army Rules Ban Protective Styles

New Army Rules Ban Protective Styles

On March 31, the Army released an update to its Army Regulation 670-1, along with an educational PDF to assist leaders in instructing soldiers on acceptable forms of grooming.

The PDF included clarifications for both male and female soldiers. Though the 60-page document is loaded with new information, one piece in particular has received a lot of attention: “Twisting two distinct strands of hair around one another to create a twisted rope-like appearance” — a popular style among black female soldiers — is now forbidden. And, in case there’s any confusion, there’s a collection of images that illustrate exactly what they mean. In response to the ban, Sgt. Jasmine Jacobs started a petition asking the White House to reconsider the changes to AR 670-1, as they “offer little to no options for females with natural hair.” And, she’s got a point, read more from >>Refinery29<<

Stop the madness!

Have you ever wondered why your hair isn’t growing? Why is it breaking?

I have a good news for you 🙂 . Your hair is growing, you are just not retaining length.

Here are few reasons why and solutions:
Your hairstyles: over manipulation and heat can seriously damage your hair. Leave your hair alone! Use protective styles so you don’t have to manipulate them too much and slow down on the heat.
Your diet: check your diet. You know what they say: “You are what you eat”. It also works for the hair.
Loss of moisture: There is only two solutions here. Moisture AND seal your ends. Water (the gold liquid) is a natural’s best friend and should be used daily in your diet or directly on the hair.
Use humectants to retain the moisture and make them more flexible. Humectants act like magnets, their role is to attract moisture that is in the air. However, they should be used with caution depending on the climate you are in. In dry climate, like winter, use moisturising conditionner instead, as there are not enough moisture in the air, otherwise they are excellent to avoid dry hair. Great humectants include glycerin, honey and panthenol.
Once that moisture is in your mane you need to seal it, as it evaporates quickly. Oils and butters such as shea butter, extra virgin olive oil, jojoba oil, and coconut oil are great sealants.

p.s.: if you suffer from excessive hair loss, you might want to consult your GP.

Stay tuned for more tips!
