WHY IS THIS EFFECTIVE?
There are various chemicals in cayenne that draw blood to the scalp. One of these is quercetin and the other is capsaicin; the famous molecule that gives red peppers that hot intense response.
When used on the hair and scalp this ingredient creates a tingling sensation creating micro-circulation and blood flow to the area, bringing nourishment to the follicles, and overtime filling-in those zones that need hair growth.
A note of advice: Use gloves and avoid the eye areas! The compounds are strong and can burn your fingers and eyes.
