DIY: Mustard Hair Growth Mask

This is a very simple, yet effective! Based on the facts that hair grows the fastest with heat. My sister and I use this a couple times a week cause we're obsessed with long hair after cutting ours so short...I'm talking about Justin Bieber short.

Anyways! Studies show that HEAT = BLOOD FLOW = HAIR GROWTH. The more heat you add to your scalp, the faster your hair grows. That's why our hair grows faster in the Summer than in Winter...MIND BLOWING?!

Not enough science? This might be "T.M.I" but think where on your body does hair grow the fastest...that's right, your baby maker! Why? It's constantly covered which keeps it warm 24/7 so what did we learn? HEAT = BLOOD FLOW = HAIR GROWTH.
(Explains why my sister wears a hat everyday...)

Which is why this hair mask is perfect! Dry mustard powder warms up the scalp and causes a rush of blood flow to the hair follicles.

What you need:

2 tablespoon dry mustard powder (available at any market in the spice section, we got ours at Walmart.)
2 tablespoon hot water
1 egg yolk (beaten)
2 teaspoon olive oil
2 teaspoon sugar
Plastic cap

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, slowly adding the yolk last, you don't want the yolk to scramble due to the hot water.

Separate your hair into halves, applying the mask on your scalp, try not to focus on the ends. Remember it's your scalp that does the hair growing. After applying the mask, cover your head with plastic cap and loop towel. Wait 10-30 minutes, there will be a slight or little to no discomfort, since mustard powder is a spice and we are trying to recreate heat. But if you're extremely sensitive and you feel to the point it's unbearable, stop the procedure. If you can endure it, it's best to leave the mask in for an hour but 15 minutes is a necessary minimum. When time is up, wash mask off with shampoo and then condition.

Apply 1-2 times a week for one month, your hair will grow about 10cm. Varies per person.

If consistent with regime, in a month you would've grown about 2.4-3 inches of hair! All thanks to good old mustard powder, who would've thought right? Enjoy and good luck!

  2. What if it doesn't burn or heat up on your scalp?

    1. I've read that since the effects can vary per person, your scalp may or may not burn/heat up.

      Delete
    2. If it doesn't burn add more sugar. The sugar is what makes it burn and the more the burn the better it grows. But don't overdo it. just gradually add heat(sugar) to it and if it gets really uncomfortable mash it of.

  5. Use a hair color application brush. (found at beauty supply stores) It works great when you part each section and apply it like a stylist does with color!

  6. Here are some ways you can grow hair fast naturally: Read below...

    • To increase the length of your hair, nip any potential damage in the bud by getting regular trims. Trims just cut the bottom of your hair. These are not meant to cut a lot of inches.

    • You always want to use a wide toothed com b to comb wet hair. Avoid using a brush to brush wet hair fact is, when your mane is wet, it is most likely to be broken and damaged.

    • Use an aloe Vera massage on your scalp, leave it for an hour and then rinse it with warm water.

    • Another natural approach is to rinse your hair with apple cider vinegar and sage tea.

    • Boiled water with rosemary leaves used as a daily rinse will also strengthen your hair strands even further.

    Growing hair fast naturally is rather simple, but it does take time and persistence. Resist the urge to cut hair or to color it as this will only hurt your efforts to grow out your hair.

    Another good technique is to use a hot oil treatment made of natural herbs to cleanse the scalp and increase blood flow for maximum hair growth.

  8. what if you apply it more than 2 times a week. Like say 4 or 5 times a week for a month. Will your hair grow longer?

    1. No it'll make your scalp used to it making it ineffective also it will make your scalp very dry which is bad for hair growth

    1. Ok jennifer im quite sure u didnt get any before or after pictures for whatever shampoo or conditioner or other styling products you use, but yet we still continue to use them & just because it works or didnt work for the rest of us doesnt mean its going to work for you no matter how many before or after pictures you see, so in other words try it for yourself so you can get your own experience then u can post your own proof or dont its that simple

    2. I can confirm it works. I can see my hair growing 1-2 centimeters every time I do this mask. Interestingly I would see the results 24-48 hours after the treatment.

  13. Does this work on curly hair? Because mine is super curly and takes forever to grow.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. should work on every type of hair.. but take care to apply it only on your roots.
      as curly hair is already sometimes dry, this could dry out a litte.. or just depp condition afterwards :)

  39. I have made a mask using mustard powder, cinamon, olive oil, honey, sugar and coconut oil and it feels great on my scalp ! The 'burning' feeling is relaxing and nothing more than a warming sensation, and i did put quite alot of sugar, cinamon and mustard powder in the mix ! I'm excited to see the progress as i recently cut off a few inches of dead thinning ends !

    1. As far as I know I don't think there is a substitute for egg because of the special vitamins it has... I think to should try some oil based masks and take a pill of biotin daily :) thats what I do and i get complements on how healthy it is

  44. Please help. My hair has always been my pride and joy. I figured since it is pretty damn healthy, it could deal with some bleach damage. And I figured the master stylist who did all the color-corrections would know how much would be too much. I was wrong, and now I want to burst into tears every time I look at my hair or touch it. I just don't know what to do. my hair has also NEVER been shorter than this and it breaks and falls out. What should i do to regrow hair?

    ReplyDelete
  45. I regrew my hair and you can too. -I've been bleaching my hair on and off since forever. My hair wouldn't grow any longer it would just snap off. I've dreamed about having thick, long hair. And when I say dreamed, I mean it quite literally. So i decided to do something about it. My friend suggested Biotin when we were talking about my hair loss.
    I’ve tried like 4 different brands until i found that the best one for me. Now i’m 26 and I've been taking Biotin every day for years. My hair and nails grow SO much quicker. Hair has increased in the rate and are so long now.
    Also my energy levels are high. I remember that at the beginning i did heavy cardio and interval training which helped me lose weight fast but i did not realize how biotin played a part in my weight loss until AFTER i stopped working out. I continue to take biotin every day and now that I am no longer on my diet i eat whatever i want and i don't gain weight. It appears the biotin may be keeping my metabolism to the level it was at during my training. So i highly recommend it to you. For me the best is www.certifiedbiotin.com my friends also use this one.
