No grease will grow your hair. Using a grease can protect your ends from damage and lead them to not break which can help with you retaining hair length. Vitamin E can help with hair thinning.

No grease will grow your hair.

Healthy diet & exercise can help to contribute to growth. Supplements help some, but not all. Some people here have had good results with surge, but others have not.

Eat healthy and be gentle with your hair. Work on retaining the hair that you have and growth will happen on it’s own.

Good luck & welcome to the board.

I tend to disagree, I've used grease and my hair and it grew long and thick, the vitamins help the hair growing process go a little faster, but don't use grease with heavy petroleum or mineral oil contents.

Default Re: What Type of grease will grow your hair

I saw a thread about a grease called Frenchee aka Dogmane...I think the screen name of the person who posted the thread was wingtoe (you might want to PM her). She said her hair grew from shoulder length to waist length in 2 months using Frenchee Super Gro. They said it is similar to Glovers.

I used Black n Sassy Tea Tree Oil Triple Gro and it helped with growing my hair by preventing breakage. I think thats the only way grease can help with growth is by preventing breakage

I think that if you keep your scalp clean and well stimulated it can help to accelerate growth a little. i an waring twists for an extended period of time and i swab my scalp everyday with Witch Hazel and water. I also use some essential oils like rosemary, peppermint and i mix it with emu oil and cayenne extract and apply the mess to my scalp. There are many more stimulating oils and extracts that may help you grow your hair. Try Amla and Shikakai also they are suppose to strengthen your roots and reduce shedding.

i don't think you have to worry about petroleum and mineral oils clogging up your scalp if you constantly keep your scalp clean. Your hair wont stop growing if you put it on your scalp. I remember there was a time when i was younger were my mother and i believed that out hair should only be washed once every month or two months. So not only would i have alot of build up from products but i would also grease my scalp everyday till my next wash. my hair grew to the middle of by back ( i was natural and if stretched my hair hit my waist but i was around 10 years old). well that is my personal experience with grease. i am sorry i cant remember the time of grease i used. I still use grease today but i don't apply it to my scalp.

just make sure that you keep your scalp clean if you are going to use grease.

I don't think grease will make your hair grow IMO. I would recommend different oils like Peppermint or Rosemary to stimulate the scalp. I switched over from grease to oil about 7 years ago and I've never looked back.

I also came across i line of products called Hairobics. There is a scalp spray and Scalp rejuvinator product that does not contain Petroleum or Mineral oil. These products contail mostly if not all "all natural" ingredients including essentail oils and herbs extracts to help with hair growth. they are a little pricy but i believe they are worth at least a look see. These products are safe to put on your scalp and they may help to stimulate growth.

I know Pooh, I wasn't poking fun at you. I just find some of those claims outlandish. I don't believe there is any product in the market now and in the forseeable future that's going to grow hair from shoulder length to waist length in 2 months, unless you're a midget. Now, 20 years from now, who knows...

I use Hairobics, the products are great, if you ever hit a hairshow, she's usually there, very nice lady, she will tell you all of her hair secrets if you ask her. Her hair is literally to her knees.

I really think that the CEO of Hairobics has awesome hair. I really like the list of ingredients in the scalp spray and in the scalp revitalizer and if i had enough money i would buy it.
What i really want to know is what on earth that women did to grow her hair to that length. That is amazing !! do you have any ideas or know how i can email her?
