Reversing alopecia by growing hair with Cayenne Pepper
This is information garnered from the internet and elsewhere; as well as personal experience.
DO NOT CONSIDER THIS AS MEDICAL ADVISE. THIS COULD CAUSE SERIOUS HARM IF YOU GET CAYENNE PEPPER IN YOUR EYES or breath in the concentrated fumes while rinsing it out. Be VERY CAREFUL with cayenne powder. Inhaled, it can cause anaphylactic shock. If you can't hold your breath for over 30 seconds while rinsing it out. You may want to stay clear of this...
I have personally tried it and have noticed some hair growth over a 2 month time period. The worse thing I've found is that when I spray wash the cayenne out in the kitchen sink - I have to hold my breath while it goes down the drain. It can be like taking a whiff of pepper spray into your lungs. So be careful not to get it into your eyes, and to not breath it in while washing it out. Keep the drain wide open.
GROWING HAIR WITH CAYENNE PEPPER & OLIVE OIL (AND/OR JUST WATER):
How about growing a fuller head of hair with a mixture of cayenne pepper and olive oil; or just cayenne pepper and water? My recipe/formula is 1 tablespoon of Cayenne pepper, a dime size amount of olive oil and the remainder - hot tap water. Mix water till it has a tad bit wetter than ketchup consistency. Apply to a wet scalp. Quackery? Some doctors have recommended this for hair growth. Apply where you want thicker hair, or where you want hair.
The theory is that that little bit of "fire" you feel (not so bad) on your scalp when applied - makes your body rush what's needed to grow hair there - like oxygen & nutrients - to "put out the fire". You keep it on your scalp for 30 min a day where you want hair or fuller hair. While in your hair - your head will have the appearance of a bloody (blood red appearance) mess. But the mixture shampoos right out. Search for the right cayenne pepper which is ground correctly. You'll know it when it stings a little for 15 - 20 min or so, until it begins to dry. McCormick Ground (Cayenne) Red Pepper in the 1 oz size works. You can get that in most grocery stores. You only need 3/4 to a full tablespoon of cayenne. First wet your hair & scalp. If mixing with water and/or olive oil, the mixture should be a bit wetter than the consistency of a ketchup.
DON'T ATTEMPT MIXING OR APPLYING THIS CAYENNE UNLESS YOU READ & UNDERSTAND THE BELOW HAND WASHING REQUIREMENTS:
MOST IMPORTANT: Some people can mix it and apply it with their fingers and feel nothing. I can. Others will need a rubber glove. But ALWAYS wash off your fingers/hands THOROUGHLY with soap & water immediately after applying AND immediately after shampooing - if you used your hands. NEVER, EVER rub your eyes if you haven't washed it off your hands and face. This would cause immense pain and possibly blindness. It may be a good idea to keep a bottle full of thimerosal-free saline solution (like some contact users use) around in case that catastrophe does happen - and you need to immediately flush your eyes with it. It may be a very good idea to use a plastic shower hat after you apply it - if you don't plan on watching the mirror for a while to ensure it doesn't drip down your forehead--into your eyes. I typically just sit and watch a movie with headphones (rub headphones with a wet sponge after) on while the solution is on.
Also, don't allow it to drip down your forehead either. Keep a tissue right there. Watch it in a mirror until you are sure it is dry enough that it won't drip down your forehead. See more info on this - and a proposed mixture here: http://www.ehow.com/way_5296973_cayenne-olive-oil-hair-growth.html
Cayenne pepper has proven to be greatly beneficial to reversing alopecia. However, a full head of hair doesn't grow overnight. Due to the blood flow and circulation acceleration benefits of cayenne pepper, it begins to become noticeable in a matter of weeks when used as one element of a healthy hair regimen. Read more: here
