I like this better!
I’m a lover of anything cinnamon; anything that has a Fall/Christmas scent for that matter.
Anyway, I discovered cinnamon works just as effectively as garlic/onions to stimulate the scalp. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4eO2E6prGhc).
Cinnamon also smells a lot better obviously.
However, the fact that garlic/onions contain sulphur probably makes them overall superior to cinnamon for overall hair benefits, but I really couldn’t deal with the scent/migraine I got from using them.
I had to scrub , bleach, light candles, air fresheners, etc., to get rid of the garlic smell that seemed to seep into the walls when I last whipped up a batch to apply to my hair.
I’m so thankful I found this cinnamon substitute, but if you can handle the garlic/onion smell, then by all means go for it. I still highly believe it’s great for hair growth.
I am going to apply the cinnamon to my scalp for 15-30 mins every time before co-washing.
The way I am going to make the mixture is:
1 tsp cinnamon
1tbsp of any of my fav oils
a dash of peppermint extract (optional)
I am going to apply this directly to the scalp only, massage scalp, put a shower cap over my head, process for the recommended time, then wash out, and co wash as usual.
