"All Natural" Growth Aid

So I was on a hair forum that I frequent and everyone was talking about this "new" growth aid. Initially I didn't pay much attention because I try not to jump on every bandwagon, especially if it can potentially be harmful to my hair. There was one growth aid that's all the rage, where they use miconzal nitrate mixed with some type of oil and apply it to scalp. Oh, and in case you didn't
already know, miconzal nitrate is none other than the medical name for Monistat. Yes, you heard me right. Monistat. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not judging them or anything for using this. Shoot, they were getting results. I just didn't want to try it. I didn't want to risk it. But when I finally went in to read about this other growth aid called "MoeGro Growth Recipe", I saw that all the ingredients were all natural. I figured I could give it a try. So I purchased my ingredients and brewed me up a bath. I don't have any results yet but I will keep you all posted. It has been said that hair grows at an "average" rate of 0.5 inches per month. Just to let you know one member of the the forum reported 0.5 to .25 inches of growth in a week. She said she got more growth if she massaged her scalp nightly for atleast 5 minutes. So with that, I'll leave you guys the recipe. Tell me if you decide to try it.

MoeGro Growth Recipe
supplies:one glass jar, 6oz of jojoba oil or macadamia nut oil, 2oz aloe vera juice/gel, 2 tbsp of horsetail herbs, plastic squirt bottle (like the one for hair dye)

1. place oil and herbs in the jar
2. place jar in a pot of boiling water and allow the oil heat up
3. remove jar from water and place the top on it. Let this sit for three days so the herbs can infuse with the oil
4. strain oil in to squirt bottle
5. pour in 2oz of aloe
6.
shake well and your ready to go

with this mix you will oil your SCALP (afterwards, I brush it through my hair) if you use Jojoba you may have to 6reapply every two days because your scalp will absorb the oil completely. With the mac. oil you will reapply it once a week depending on how fast your scalp absorbs the oil.continue to wash and condition you hair as usual just don"t pile on a bunch of other products. If you can don't put any thing else on you SCALP you dont want to clog you pores.

Some have substituted olive oil for the oil. I personally used coconut oil, but I now think it would be best to use jojoba oil. (It's a bit more expensive).

Yes that is probably the best place to purchase the herbs. That or an herb store. The oil you can also purchase at the health food store. I think mac. oil is the most expensive and then jojoba oil. But again, people have also been getting great results with olive oil.
