Let me tell you how my hair growth journey started. After I came to terms with fact that my hair was NOT coming back - I was ok with being bald.
After a few years, I decide to try to grow my hair back. I could not afford the products that were on the market, the B12 scalp shots were NOT an option because I am not a fan of needles.
The first thing I used on my scalp was Caster Oil, I found it at the beauty supply store, I decided to use it after reading and doing some research on it.
Every night, I would wipe my scalp off with a warm towel, and immediately apply a handful of castor oil and with my fingertips, I would massage until they felt numb (usually about 2 mins). I would then tie a satin/silk scarf on my head along with a bonnet- just in case it came off- and go to bed.
In the morning, I would repeat the process. If it was cold, I NEVER went out without my head covered. I love hats, so that was no problem- I ALWAYS kept a scarf on underneath so that the hat would not irritate my scalp.
During the summer, I still wore a hat if I knew I was going to be outside for a while.
At work, people accepted my scalp as just part of me, and it was not an issue.
It was months of this process, NO EXCEPTIONS, before I started to see some results. I felt peach fuzz on the sides and in the back. Over the course of two years, my hair grew back slowly. My scalp was still itchy and irritated; the most important thing that I had to remember was to KEEP MY HANDS OFF MY HEAD!
I had to remember that my hands contained all kinds of germs from the day. It is crucial that your hands are clean before you touch your scalp.
