Cayenne and rosemary are not just seasonings for culinary creations. A common bond that these herbs both share is how they aid hair growth and, specifically, how they combat hair loss.
About cayenne pepper and rosemary
Cayenne pepper is ground from chilli peppers and stimulates the scalp. Rosemary, an aromatic herb with pinelike needles, cleans the scalp and stimulates hair follicles. Recipes use both cayenne pepper and rosemary for hair growth.
Cayenne pepper hair tonic
To stimulate the scalp, use four ounces of ground cayenne pepper in a hair tonic. Combine the cayenne pepper with either 100 proof vodka or pure rubbing alcohol and with 20 per cent distilled water as the base.
Cayenne pepper hair paste
Another cayenne pepper hair growth recipe calls for a paste, which also stimulates the scalp by irritating it. Ground pepper is mixed with hot water and powdered charcoal left on the scalp for 20 to 30 minutes and then rinsed off.
One way to stimulate hair growth with rosemary is with a rosemary rinse. Rosemary is boiled and simmered. Then, strain the water. Pour the water over your head after shampooing.
Rosemary essential oil eases dry scalps, helping hair grow and preventing future loss. You can make your own rosemary oil by adding rosemary to olive oil and allowing the solution to ferment for four weeks. Then, use the mixture as an overnight deep conditioner once a week.
Rosemary Vinegar Rinse
Rosemary vinegar rinse helps to strengthen hair. Use apple cider vinegar in this recipe. Apply this treatment to your hair weekly with lukewarm water.
