Sulfur Growth Mix...

akilamoniqueakilamonique Posts: 302Registered Users
Yesterday, my sulfur came in and I made my "sulfur growth mix". I used sulfur, castor oil, amla oil and rosemary oil.
Both amla and rosemary oil are suppose to help your hair grow, which is the reason I choose those two oils.
I'm going to post my progress on my fotki page, if you are interested.

    Yes, I would love to see your progress. I gave up on using sulfur, just because I couldn't tell if it did anything for me. I hope it works for you. Lots of women swear by it.

    Do you leave this on your hair and/or scalp, or use it as a treatment? I think my UltraNourishair contains sulfur, but I'm not sure.

    I leave it in overnight, and I take the Hair Nourish vitamins as well.

    Interesting. Do you feel like the vitamins are helping? I've been taking mine for over 2 months now, and my hair seems to be growing more slowly than normal. I know, patience is the key, but from the drugstore.com reviews and reviews I've seen here on UN, I was expecting something. I know it's been cold here, but I don't remember cold weather having this much effect on my hair. Even the hair on my body is growing slowly. If I don't shave my underarms for 2 days, typically they are HAIRY. I went 2 days last week w/o shaving them, and there was barely a stubble. Weird. I'm sticking with the vitamins, but so far, I'm not jazzed.

    Somewhere on another post I said my hair had grown 1/2 and inch in like a week and a half. I wasn't sure if my husband and I measured wrong the first time, or if it actually grew. I can def. see the diff. in my nails they are growing like crazy. I started my sulfur this week as well.
    As of now, wether it be the sulfur or the vit. my hair is thicker, and is half an inch longer.

    What's sulfur? Is that a pill, cream, or oil?
    BTW how can you stand the smell of Amla?

    it's an oil that cleanses you scalp of any fungal bacteria that may be clogging up your hair follicles and lets the real growth come through.For the amla you can try mixing a fragrance oil into it i don't think there's another way of hiding the smell

    Flower of Sulfur or Sublimed Sulfur can be purchased from your pharmacy. You may have to ask the pharmacist to order it for you. As in my case.
    As for the Amla, I think i'm the odd ball of the bunch because I actually didn't find the smell offensive.
    It reminds of of pachouli, sandlewood or cedarwood all scents that I like. If you don't like those scents then you probably can't tolerate the Amla.

    Do you need doctors prescription to buy the sulfur?And how does the oil feel on your scalp?

    No script needed. The sulfur is just a powder. As the recipie was given to me you need mix the sulfur with 4oz of oil. Let me see if I can find the original post as it was given to me.

    I posted a new pic. What do you think? I haven't measured it yet(I will next week) but my hair does seem longer and thicker to me. Who knows! I'll keep applying it until this bottle is gone.

    Is it so hard to make cause the cautions are a little scary!Ex.wear gloves,mask,goggles :laughing7: etc cause it can burn your skin. Did you follow all these or you just wore gloves?And how does it feel on your scalp.

    I actually am allergic to medications that have sulfur in them so I didn't know if working with actual sulfur would be different. Either way no, I didn't follow the safety precautions, I shouldn't say that, I did make sure I didn't inhale it, and I did make sure I didn't get it all over the place so my son and dogs didn't get ahold of it.

    I made a less stinky batch last night I actually did spill some on my hands this time and yes I did have a mild allergic reaction. My hands just itched for about half and hour.

    I'm not following. What is meant by "fungal bacteria?" Fungus and bacteria are two different things. And why would anyone have fungus or bacteria on her head (I mean, more than the normal healthy bacteria we all have)?

    Ok, I think the sulfur is making a difference, but the past couple of days I noticed that my t-zone is very dry, so I may have to stop using the sulfur so often. I've heard about something called surge 14 revitalizer, but I can't seem to find anywhere to purchase it.

    Anyone else have any growth ideas? I really want that afro puff by May!!!

    Oh, and don't say Wild Growth Oil. Makes my scalp itch(even after clarifying, more than once)

    Ok, First of all, I will give a length update(sorry no, pic- something is wrong with my comp. they won't upload, going to the Apple store, genius bar today)

    My starting length was 2 1/2, as of this morning my hair is 4in, strentched.:occasion7:

    Now for the problem. The sulfur is drying out my face, so I am going to stop using the sulfur and switch to an Amla concoction that I will start tonight. I will post what I use in that concoction and the results as well, so we can see if that really works too!
