A topic I love to
blog/vlog about is growing long healthy hair And, I’m back

highly requested video Vicks Vapor Rub
for Hair Growth
Yes or No? To answer this question, let’s first look at
what’s in Vicks Vicks Contains: Capor, Eucalyptus Oil, Menthol, Cedar Leaf OIl, Nutmeg Oil, Thymol, Turpentine Oil When we breakdown
the properties of
these ingredients
we get: Camphor – derived from the leaves, roots, or stems of the Cinnamomum camphora tree. Camphor is a stimulate—improves blood stimulation, is antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory.

Eucalyptus oil – extracted from the leaves of the Eucalyptus globulus plant. Eucalyptus is antimicrobial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory. Menthol – extracted from the leaves of the herbs peppermint, eucalyptus and pennyroyal. Peppermint oil is 29 to 48 percent menthol and is antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory.

Cedar leaf oil – extracted from Cedarwood Tree. Cedar leaf oil is antifungal and antiviral, reduces inflammation, and minimizes skin irritation or itchiness. Nutmeg oil – obtained from the seed of the nutmeg tree fruit. Nutmeg oil is a stimulant—increases blood circulation, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory.

Thymol – the active ingredient in Thyme Oil, derived from Thyme leaves. Thymol has strong antimicrobial attributes. Pine Turpentine Oil – obtained by distilling pine-tree resin using vapor distillation method. Turpentine oil is antimicrobial and a stimulant—increases blood circulation, protects natural oil balance which prevents hair loss and dandruff. So it looks like Vicks Vapor Rub is a product with a powerful punch of antimicrobial, stimulating essential oils! Any one of those
natural ingredients
would be great for stimulating growth! When you put them
all together
you are sure to get desired growth results! So using Vick’s on your scalp isn’t weird.
Sonyabeonit – The natural who came up with this idea was spot on
(her links in box below) But…There is one problem with Vicks It contains Petrolatum A.k.a. Pretroleum Jelly Petroleum is a byproduct that was found on oil rigs. Some of the workers were seen using this byproduct on their skin to hasten burn healing What Does Petroleum
Do to Your Skin? Petroleum works like a humectant on your skin by locking in moisture and keeping additional air and moisture out But It also locks in dirt,
can cause flaking,
and is difficult to fully cleanse from the scalp All in all,
it suffocates your pores while giving the illusion
of moisturized skin And It contains carcinogenic (cancer causing) components. However, Those components ARE thoroughly filtered
before packaging And, no one doubts Petroleum’s effectiveness when used sparingly on burns/skin cracks But should you try Vick’s on your scalp? It’s up to you. At least you now have more info So in Conclusion, It is highly probable that Vick’s Vapor Rub
will grow your hair Here are the steps to
Applying Vicks to Scalp
(for the inquiring minds who would like to know) First,
Mix a spoonful of vapor rub with your oil of choice
(black seed oil is what Sonyabeonit used) Next,
Section your hair and
put the mixture
Onto your scalp Afterwards,
Let it sit for 15minuts Lastly,
Shampoo and
Continue with your haircare routine Repeat this Process
for at least 1 month And, Don’t forget
