Has anyone tried drinking "hair cocktails" for hair growth? I read on LHCF it promotes strong, healthy, fast growing hair and that people have seen results in less than 2 weeks. But among the list of ingredients for this cocktail, one raw egg is included. I mean, honestly, if it works, I dont mind. I wanted to see if anyone on here has had any luck with this method?

    Raw egg? Cant do it. Too yucky and i believe could be dangerous for salmonela.
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:

    I used to drink this shake, it's a good protein/nutritional shake, which ultimately would make it good for hair. However...once you add the wheat germ oil, egg, etc...it has like 500 calories. No thanks!
    People should be willing to stand by the things they say. Or they shouldn't say them. If your opinion can't stand in the light of day...maybe it should stay in the dark...in your head?

    Yea it's basically protein and "good" fat. Once you blend the raw egg with the other stuff, you can't even taste it. But yea, I just went back to regular protein shakes.

    Can't do it. I can barely stomach a cooked egg.

    Sorry to be the bearer of "bad" news, but there is nothing the average, reasonably healthy person can ingest or rub on topically to increase your hair's normal growth rate or change the structure of the hair shafts from the follicle to make it "grow longer."

    Protecting your hair from chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage are the only things you can do to allow your hair to grow its longest and strongest. No magic potions or pixie fairy dust on the market as yet. Don't buy into the hype. If you'll notice, even most sickly drug addicts and alcoholics usually still have their usual healthy head of hair. Unless, of course, they're taking or doing something that specifically targets and destroys or alters the function of the hair follicles.

    I have fine, curly waist-length hair that only began to grow once I stopped with all the relaxing, blowdrying, coloring, and flat/curl ironing and put my hair up in protective hair weaves for 3 years. In 2006, my barely shoulder-skimming hair was breaking all over my pillow and bathroom floor. Some pieces were barely an inch long near my crown. Today, my hair is down to my waist.
    OK, I admit it.....I'm an alias! I wasn't born with the name Honeycurls!
    :lurk: Dood, get over it; there's no time limit on lurking.

    I so busy runnin' allllllll over the place and ain't nobody chasin' me! :confused5::laughing5::jocolor:

    Hmm, i see where your coming from. This cocktail may not make your hair grow 'faster' per se, but i have tried products and/or concoctions that with constant use ,I feel definitely made my hair grow out thicker. It is possible. And honestly, some peoples hair is still dry and seems to not be thriving with or without a relaxer/coloring/flat ironing/ etc. So thats not always the only element that needs to be thrown out before beginning to grow long hair. Other practices can sometimes be necessary.

    I think if you eat a low protein diet this drink will fill that void and may give stronger hair and nails. I eat PLENTY of protein so it would just be over kill. Plus it sounds yarg! LoL!

    Each to their own. :dontknow: I believe my diet gets all the good stuff (although it gets cancelled out by the junk food I so love), so I can't be bothered with such things.
    My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse. :happy6:
