There are three main ways to use Neno Natural's Hair Growth Stimulator (HGS):
1. Massage it into your scalp as often as you remember, the more often the better
This is the original way in which I used the Hair Growth Stimulator. My hair had completely fallen out due to relaxers and braiding etc. I decided to go natural and at the same time I committed to coming up with a personal blend of oils and essential oils that would help my hair grow. Neno Natural's HGS was the result.
The best way to use the oil for massage is to spray a little oil onto your finger tips, then massage the scalp gently for 5 to 7 minutes.
After you're done massaging wear a shower cap over your head to generate some heat. Heat helps with the absorption of essential oils.
Don't use Neno Natural's HGS on kids under 5 years of age, they don't need it. For kids aged 5 to 13 years old mix 2 parts growth stimulator to one part any other vegetable carrier oil to make it more dilute. Don't worry if you forget to do this you won't cause any harm, I just prefer to be extra cautious with children.
2. Use it to seal in moisture
After you've moisturised your hair with water and a leave-in conditioner you can apply Neno Natural's Hair Growth Stimulator as the oil for sealing in that moisture. If you use the LOC method the Hair Growth Stimulator comes after the liquid; if you use the LCO method the Hair Growth Stimulator is applied following the liquid and a cream, e.g. a shea butter.
3. Use it as a conditioner!
I didn't even know this was possible. However, I went away on holiday and took a Shea Moisture conditioner before I'd ever tried it. My hair hated it. As I was away for two weeks with no access to natural hair products I went online to find an alternative. I found a conditioning formula that included most of the ingredients in Neno Natural's HGS so I just used that.
To use the oil as a conditioner wash hair thoroughly, then rub two or three tablespoons equivalent into your hair (depending on hair length and thickness). Cover hair in a shower cap, blow dry the surface of the cap for a minute then trap the heat using a thick beanie hat or a towel. Rinse and style after 15 minutes.
You can do this if you want a mid-week co-wash. It's quick, simple and convenient but it cannot replace your weekly deep condition.
Neno Natural's Hair Growth Stimulator can be used on both natural and relaxed hair. It is an all--natural product; the gorgeous smell comes from the essential oils and not from anything synthetic. You can it buy here.
