Default Side effects of using sulfur...

Anyway, i was reading all around this board that sulfur is drying to the hair. I know of the growth benefits it causes but i was wondering, is there any other side effects i should know about. I was mixing my MTG alternative this weekend and after i added the oils, i noticed that i had quite a bit of sulfur in my mix . Will this cause damage to my hair if i use it? Also does sulfur thin the hair overtime? Do i need to dilute the mixture with more oil? I think i added like 2oz of sulfur in about a 10oz mixture. I could handle the dryness that comes with sulfur, i just wanted to know if there was anything else i should be watching out for. Thanks in advance for your help.

I know a few people have stated that if they get it on their neck it can cause itches and a rash. But thats seems to e mostly with the MTG, I dont know if the alternatives have the same skin irritation effect

Thanks Dual. Come on ladies i know you guys got more knowledge on this stuff. I really need to know what will happen before i start using this stuff twice daily. I'll record my growth and show progress, i just need to know what can possibly happen. I haven't experienced any rashes from MTG so i don't think i'm allergic or anything.

Default Re: Side effects of using sulfur...

I have been using BT since January and my scalp is not dry and my hair is moist. I don't have itchies, flakes, sulfur buildup or anything like that. I do shampoo once a week and clarify once a month. I condition wash every other day. I make sure I use the sulfur every other day as well.

The only side effect I'm having right now is:








EXTREME GROWTH!!!

I think as long as you don't have an allergy to sulfur its ok to use. I even checked my preggors site and pregnant women can even use it topically. There are no toxins in it...(even if swallowed) I would add it to something moisturizing if your hair seems to dry out.

I think the important thing is to clarify. I have been using a sulphur mix since January and I use it every other day, so far nothing has happened to my scalp or hair. I have good growth and my hairline has definitely filled in.

I think if you don’t wash often you can have a build up. Sulphur is a key ingredient for gardeners as a fertilizer and it strengthens the soil, so I don’t believe you will experience any extra side effects. It is normal to have some sulphur sitting at the base of your container, just shake well each time before use.

I read on one of the threads (can't for the life of me find it) that a good amount of sulfur is 10% of the total mixture. But I think this is more so because of the drying effect than anything else. As long as you keep up with the moisture you should be ok... Keep us posted!

I wonder... extra sulfur = extra growth? Hmmmm???

On the Sulphur Content: I made my mix at 10% and it seems like it's more than was in the MTG bottle. It's VERY cloudy when shaken. My next mixture will be made with 5-8%.

Sulphur tarnishes silver (want to get a Tiff knock off bracelet but I'd be if that happened!)

So I won't come clean even if I take it to Tiffany's to clean it? My bracelet is fine, it's just the necklace.

Oh, I'm sorry! I'm not saying that all! I'm sure it's able to be saved, I was reading on the different treatments for silver that's been tarnished. I was just specifying SILVER for the original poster so she would be confused thinking that the sulfur would tarnish ALL jewerly/metals.

Sorry for the miscommunication!
