When it comes to hot and spicy food, many of us can’t even think without jalapeno. While the small hot pepper is mostly famous for its role in cooking, it has another magical side too. If used the right way, jalapeno can aid in the growth of longer, stronger, and healthier locks significantly. Thanks to its ‘capasaicin’ (a phenolic compound) content that irritates the scalp and increases the circulation of blood throughout it, thereby encouraging the growth of hair strands. Here are 5 amazing ways to grow hair faster with jalapeno:
- Jalapeno And Tequila Tincture
Take (1/4) cup of tequila in a bowl and add thinly sliced jalapeno to it. Keep the bowl aside and let the pepper slices steep in the tequila for the whole night. In the morning, dip a cotton ball into the mixture and start applying it to your dry scalp carefully. Saturate the entire scalp with the tonic and wait for 3-4 hours. Then, wash your hair with a mild shampoo. You can also use it at bedtime and leave overnight for even better results. This mixture will cleanse and tone your scalp while preparing the hair follicles for faster growth of the strands.
