I am analying the recipe for the Hairdrenalyn Potion and I really don't like the formula that much.
Measurements Per 16 oz of Castor Oil:
45 cut tea bags
1/2 large bottle of Cayenne Pepper
30 Biotin pills (Rexall Sundown Naturals, High Potency Biotin)
2-4 drops onion seed oil
1-2 drop garlic seed oil
2:1 ratio of onion seed oil to garlic seed oil
It appears that it is mainly tea blackened castor oil. There are only a few droppers of onion seed oil and garlic seed oil in 16 ounces of oil. That does not seem like enough at all considering how beneficial those products are for hair growth. Also, I would add a bit more than 1/2 spice bottle of cayenne and add red pepper flakes as well. I also do not want to strain out the biotin powder and I do not know that it needs to be cooked in oil for 5 hours. So, I am thinking I will modify it as follows:
1 cup dried onion powder
1/2 cup dried garlic powder
1/2 cup red pepper flakes and cayenne mixed
1/2 cup horsetail herb and or stinging nettle herb (I like that better for hair than black tea personally)
cover with oil and place in crock pot for a few hours. will require maybe at least 1/2 gallon of oil
Add a good amount of biotin powder to the strained oil and let continue to steep a while. I will buy a bag of biotin powder instead of opening capsules.
Transfer to a dark bottle and add sufficient peppermint and/or rosemary essential oil to mask onion and garlic odor.
