Simple Cure for Protein Overload

I recently was a victim of having too much protein in my hair. How did I know? The most visible symptom of protein overload is dry brittle hair, hair that will not hold moisture including water and needless to say breakage (I hate relating that word to my hair!).

Whether it is light or medium, over time it will build up with frequent use. I now pay extremly close attention to the ingredients in my hair products. I found online an easy cure for protein overloaded hair. Here are the steps:

Cayenne Pepper for Hair Growth

Hello Saints! I am currently using a homemade oil mixture I made with 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper to seal my 1x daily after I moisturize. I can definitely feel the stimulation to my scalp but not to the point that it's uncomfortable. Please make sure to handle cayenne pepper safely. Wash your hands with soap and water thoroughly after handling. I'm excited to see the results. :o)

Hair may be implanted surgically for those who have thinning hair, and there are many chemical products to encourage hair growth. Although nothing grows hair, many people look to natural options such as cayenne pepper for help in building thicker hair.

Blends & Recipes for Healthier Hair

Here are some suggestions for basic hair care formulas. All of these are designed for regular daily application, or as frequently as you feel is beneficial to you. These formulas can be massaged into a wet or dry scalp and left for at least 20 minutes, or applied before bed and left overnight. All formulas may be increased or decreased in total volume, thought the ratio of essential oil to carrier oil should stay close to these suggestions. These are general (though potentially very effective) suggestions -- changing ingredients to best suit your hair is encouraged!

Hair Products for Long Hair Growth

 Some people find it terribly difficult to grow their hair past a certain point. They may feel that their hair isn't growing. This is not true; hair is always growing. The problem is that hair has a certain lifespan. When people experience hair loss, hair is falling out at a much faster rate than it is growing. When hair seems to stay the same length, the fallout and growth rate are pretty much the same. To get hair to grow longer, you have to speed up the growth rate and retain more of the hair that is present. There are certain products that can help with this process.
