Question Indian Hemp for hair growth

For all the West Indian ladies: and anyone who knows!

Indian Hemp is often referred to as a "hair grower". The East Indians call it Jaborandi. Anyway...do any of you remember your grandmothers talking about using this in their hair products back in the day and if so was it effective? They advertize it at Penn Herb.com but I would like to hear some "true stories" or experiences about this plant. Can someone help a sistah out to separate the wheat from the chaff, so to speak? Anyone on the board use this plant or herb for their hair? Bonjour

I don't have any 'testimonies' but, I have seen some indian hemp hair grease at CVS, and have always been tempted to buy it, but I end up telling myself I don't need it 'cause I have so much other stuff.

Welcome Asphyxxia!

So do you think it was the hemp or that her hair was always protected that was responsible for her long hair? Did she every tell you her regimen?

Default Re: Indian Hemp for hair growth

I used the Always Indian Hemp for YEARS and never noticed any particular growth. My hair was maybe a little past my sholders and pretty much stayed that way. Then again I didn't moisturize my ends regularly, etc. I used it with my twists and such.

I find it too thick and greasy for me nowadays...I prefer something lighter.

I've used the Indian Hemp grease off an on but don't notice any extra growth. I really like to use it when my hair has 8-12 weeks of new growth. I think my hair needs that extra something at this time.

I use pure Indian Hemp Hair Oil when I rollerset (1-2 times a week). I don't know about any extra growth with it, but combined with Mango Butter, it makes my hair come out extremely soft and shiny

Hugs,

On her scalp only. Too heavy for her hair. She wears cornrows most of the time so I put it on her scalp every 2-3rd day (sometimes i do it wkly b/c my memory is shot) to keep it from drying out. I haven't noticed any 'extra' growth tho...

I'd say it was the protective styling, but i'm guess the indian hemp didnt hurt either cause her hair was still very long. i think her type was 3a/b and she only relaxed twice a year, so that probably had something to do with it as well.

Ok, I've seen Indian Hemp hair grease before but when I read the first post, I was thinking that Indian hemp was actually a name given to one particular herb that was used in hair products. Why did I google indian hemp and marijuana come up as the other name for it?

I guess that's how Snoop and all these other dude's hair got long, taking that 'hemp' in the form of dozier.

Hi Mochalolita, where did you buy your pure Indian Hemp hair oil from? This isn't the Allways grease, is it? Thanks in advance for your response.

I used the Always brand back in the day on my scalp and hair when I was in high school. Not sure if it aided in hair growth though, my hair has always had a lot of length to it but I wear it up 99% of the time and rarely use heat which I attribute to my high growth rate and retention.

I use my Indian Hemp grease sometimes as well. I love the smell and it melts on the scalp. I use the kind by Softee.
