Hi guys, I'm going to do the cayenne treatments for my thinning hair. I may alternate with wigs and scarfs for a period and rest and restart alternatively for the three months. I've read that cayenne pepper is an effective hair growth stimulant. Over the winter is a good time to do this. Also, to quiet the rustling of the plastic cap put a wig cap or a tight scarf on your head over the plastic. This helps me quiet the rustling. Good luck.
 
We will both be on the bald spot journey together and I hope your hair grows back. I also hope you get to max hydration quicker. Please update us after a month. I'll update my progress as well with this regimen once I start. I'm planning on starting in September. FYI, I also tuck my satin wig cap under the elastic part of the plastic cap so that it doesn't irritate my hairline so you might want to try that once you start.

Pinkecube, thank you for your quick response. You are a wealth of information. I am so grateful for you. I intend to lighten my hair to a light brown with highlights. I was referred to a professional colorist used by a friend with good results. I can get more information on the products and process for your review and suggestions. Right now I have good results. My curls are about 1 inch from my roots and are tighter in my back and sides. The crown is also improving.
Nothidden: thank you for your advice and questions. I will take your advice and achieve more hydration before lightening. I plan to do the bald spot regime over the winter (I don't have bald spots but want to reverse thinning and thicken hair especially in the crown). I'll have more hydration by that time. You have some great questions on integrating coloring into the MHM regimen. I'm very interested in Pinkecube's response. Thanks again.

I have read that low porosity individuals should not apply product on soaking hair as well.  But personal experience doing the MHM has shown me that my hair responds best to soaking hair.  Otherwise, I get frizz.

Naturaltash1: Thanks, that's a good idea. Let's start this together to compare notes and give encouragement. I also use a small plastic grocery bags to protect my edges.

Also one more question pinke, I normally rinse my hair in the shower with warm water then apply my BS/condish mixture, should I be applying it on dry hair? or does it matter?

Thanks for the love, Mgood2go! Glad to have you starting this journey. There are people doing this regimen on already colored hair. But coloring afterward, I think there are some people on instagram. Coloring does have an effect and you may notice a slight setback in moisture levels. I don't think it is something to get stressed about, because you will bounce back that is just the nature of certain types of coloring, it is drying. But if you want color, don't let that stop you. Just be aware that is will have an effect, but it is also something I believe can work out fine as long as you don't overdo it. And do not get color thinking it is going to lift you cuticles and enhance your effect, it is not reliably going to do that, and can give you a set back as well.
Mgood2go, I think about coloring my hair daily, but I am afraid of a set back. Pinke, what would you recommend for those of us on the regimen wanting to color? I think this came up recently, and correct me if I'm wrong but I think I read something about coloring right after a Cherry Lola Caramel treatment. I was also thinking deep conditioning right before and right after would help get the hydration level back. Pinke, do you think some dyes are better than others or, as a product, all dyes zap your hydration levels?


I know you asked Pinkecube but since I color my hair I figured I would offer an opinion. I would recommend getting to max hydration first before coloring your hair if you don't currently color your hair. That way you know exactly what your hair should feel like and how it should act. Otherwise if your hair has problems you won't know whether to contribute it to the color or your regimen.

Semi is the least damaging and washes out over time. Demi and then permanent can be more damaging. They both contain peroxide. Avoid any color with ammonia.

Color can damage the hair cuticles which is why it impacts moisture levels. The cuticles can end up with holes in them limiting its ability to hold onto moisture.

Hi , in reference to color.  I have colored my hair with permanent color multiple times really bacause I'm not afraid of color.(since I started my natural journey)  I love it.    When I started the MHM I had blonde color in my hair(but my hair wasn't blonde cause I didn't strip it.) 2 weeks later I colored it black.  I believe the MHM is a benefit with the color.  My hair is becoming hydrated and I don't need any moisturizes, etc to combat dryness. My preference for color is Creme of Nature with Argan Oil.  Feel free to follow me on Instagram(Naturally50).  Im actually curious about henna though so I may try that next, probably in about 1 month or so.

Mgood2go, I'm pretty paranoid about causing myself a setback, so I'll hold off on chemical coloring for now.

I'm going to start using my cayenne-oil mix next week as I'll be off from work for a while. I'm considering doing all-day DC/GHE w/my heat cap during this time, too. My thinning crown still feels a bit like straw but definitely getting better. It's strange how different it feels from the rest of my hair. But the tips are finally bending into a loose curl and the rest of the strand is now a bit wavy, so I am very encouraged. MHM requires a lot of patience that is paying off (23 cycles).

Oh, one thing I did notice, which I chatted w/msdeekay about, was that after doing the clay step overnight for a few days, my hair seemed thicker. Getting thru steps 4/5 became more of a challenge all of the sudden, and the overnight clay was the only thing I changed. MsDeekay said she just thought it was the MHM in general making her hair feel thicker, not contributing the change to leaving the clay on overnight. Not sure if others have had this experience.

Congratz, Afro Angel! Your transformation is amazing!!! The clay step is no joke! Thanks for sharing your progress.

juan_mos, you have to upload the pictures on a separate site first, then copy it from there and paste in the reply box. If you are doing it from your tablet, you'll have to copy image location, and paste the link in the url box of the image uploader. If you keep getting access denied, you want to have copied everything in the box onto your clipboard and just be prepared if it does that. Then you can log out, close the window, clear cookies and cache and the access denied will go away. It's frustrating, i know.Ouch
Think I'll stick to posting on Instagram. Much easier. I hope this worked out for you juan_mos.
