|Measurements as of 7 October 2014
Ok so now that that’s out of the way, I need to clear up the spritz issue. As I have mentioned in my disclaimer, I am no expert on hair care – I simply go about mixing potions and finding remedies that work for my hair type (3c/4a) and my daughter’s (4c).
I’ve heard some stories that the spritz caused itchiness, I went back to the recipe and realised that I should have included water. Water is one of the only true moisturizers we have, so whenever you mix a spritz together, add a bit of water to the mix. This may prevent the itchiness, if not – STOP using the growth remedy. Immediately.
The kid suffers from dry scalp so I’ve changed my spritz a little for her benefit – and believe me, it has been beneficial. My recipe now includes:
50ml aloe vera juice
2.5ml castor oil
Fill the rest of your bottle with water
Spritz on your hair, concentrating on the roots, 2 to 3 times a week
It’s a well known fact that I am a huge castor oil fan. I mix it into my Tresemme Naturals conditioner for a super soft wash and go. The Aloe vera juice (available at Dischem) is great for conditioning, hair growth, it is an anti-inflammatory and it has antipruritic benefits. This basically means that it is an anti-itch remedy. Castor oil and aloe juice both aid in hair growth as well.
My routine is to spritz, twist, air-dry. I take the twists out and style the next morning.
I only rinse out on my next wash day. You may choose to rinse out as you see fit. I am not a master at the twist-out game but nonetheless, this is usually the result:
Before I give you my measurements for this month,I need to make it clear that not all hair grows the same. Expecting the same growth as the next person is unrealistic. Simply keep loving your own healthy hair.
So, to answer the question of whether my hair grew, you have to bear in mind that my growth is usually at 1cm per month (place drum roll here):-
If you’ve used this remedy, you can relate to the growth, shine, strength and all round health of your hair. Have you started the hair growth remedy? What have your experiences been?
