REVIEW OF HAIR TRIGGER EXPLOSIVE GROWTH ELIXIR with Cayenne pepper

Hiya,

How's everyone doing?Hope all is well at your endz!!

 Starting SHOP NHCG has had some really great benefits, one of the main benefits being my introduction to really great products , products I had never heard about or cared about but because a reader of this blog ordered it, I gave it a shot and  loved it.

One of such products is the HAIR TRIGGER EXPLOSIVE GROWTH ELIXIR with Cayenne pepper introduced to me by Kelly(Thanks again girl!!).



I usually never purchase products that claim to be 'explosive' or 'miraculous' or 'magical' because I just have always felt those words were just for marketing purposes so when Kelly ordered a bottle of this stuff I was like 'which one is this again? Poor girl has fallen for a marketing gimmick!' Not one to make conclusions without at least researching, I decided to look up reviews and more people than I expected loved it(if you really want to know more about a product you are just hearing about
googling up reviews is a MUST) even blogger Jen from Just Grow Already had tried it out so I concluded the product might not be that bad after all. 

 I ordered it for Kelly in Novemeber. Remember how I told you the manufactuer sent a hand written thank you note HERE, loved the personal touch but I still was not convinced. Even when the import window opened in January I was still not interested...then a twist of fate happened!!! Kelly sent me a mail saying she needed another bottle with a scent ( Well thats what I thought she said) because the first bottle she ordered had no scent and I hear the original scent is hardcore, so I go ahead and buy a bottle for Kelly and then she tells me that she did'nt want another bottle but just a scent to add to her existing bottle and unfortunately the company does'nt sell only scents so I was stuck with the already ordered bottle and decided to try it out for myself and see if I would like it. So here goes my review...

Ingredients; Oils:Avacado, Castor, Clary Sage, Jojoba, Rosemary.
                    Vitamins; Biotin, Silica.
                     Herbs; Black Tea, Cayenne pepper, garlic and Onions
Don't you like how she breaks down the ingredients; oils, vitamins and herbs, will definitely help if you want to concoct this mix yourself as the ingredients are organic and straight forward.

Directions; Again the manufacturer does a great job in telling you different ways you can use this product; Below are the directions in my summary...
Daily Treatment; Apply to scalp, dont go beyond 1 inch of roots, massage well for 2-5minutes and style
Overnight pre-poo treatment; Apply from roots to ends evenly, you may add an oil/conditioner, massage, cover with plastic cap, rinse next day  and shampoo.
Hot oil treatment- apply to damp/dry hair, distribute evenly from scalp to ends, massage, cover hair for 15-30mins with plastic cap and stay under dryer. Follow with shampoo.

Other intsructions; store in cool, dry place. Wait 48hours before/after relaxer or color treatment to use, wash hands after use, avoid eye contact...

Now to my experience; I have only used this product as an overnight pre poo and in the 3times I have used it on my hair, my hubs has asked if I baked cupcakes!! I got the vanilla pound cake scent(for Kelly) and all I can say is YUM!! The scent really does a great job in masking all the garlic and onions that's inside the mix! The mix has the look and consistency of pure honey(maybe slightly lighter) or maple syrup.










The first time I poured it in a bowl I was not feeling it on its own so I mixed it with some conditioner like I would if I was using honey.

 

Applied it to my hair from root to tip, covered my hair as per the instructions and went to bed smelling like cake! It will help to sleep with a towel over your pillow to absorb any spills. Woke up the next morning could'nt wait to rinse off. I rinsed off the mix, did not shampoo only used Roux Porosity Control Conditioner to cowash and let me tell you...I won't lie to you, my new growth at 7 plus weeks has never felt as soft as this mix made it feel!!
Look at all that new growth, it was super soft when I was done, I couldnt believe it!! Then talk about the hair I lost as due as my hair was for a touch up;
 
Detangling was a breeze, I seriously could'nt believe it and thought it was a fluke so I've used it twice since my relaxer this month(thats how much  I love this stuff) used it yesterday on a wenesday!! Being a weekday I hardly have time to indulge in hair treats but after I ran my hands through my hair and it felt dry, I just said to myself this hair needs to be hair triggered!! Mixed some of the hair trigger with my organixs macadamian oil hair mask, slathered the mixed on my hair, root to tip, covered hair and went to bed, this morning rinsed it off in the shower as I prepared for work, mosisturized and sealed in my car!! Yes if you saw a lady combing her hair and massaging in products at the Lekki toll this morning...she was probably me!LOL
 
and let me show you guys how much hair I lost, I kept it safe in my bag just for this post;
 
Now that's very little hair loss for hair that has not tasted water since Saturday!!
 
In all as you can tell, I am very pleased with this product and just might take on the challenge of using it for 2months straight and see whether my hair growth will explode as recommended by the manufacturer!!
 
Feel free to visit the website; here There you will see testimonials and pictures of befores and afters of customers. Not too dramatic changes in my opinion but after I used this product and know how well it has made my hair feel, even at 8weeks post relaxer, I defintely see its potential to aid in hair growth over a period of time!
 
Naturals...if your hair is 4b/c coarse and difficult to deal with, give hair trigger a chance, I tell you it might be the answer to making your hair softer; that I can attest to!!
 
 
For as many as have heard about this product and wanted to know a little more about it before purchasing it, here you have it! Hope my review helps!!
 
In other news, I have gotten a few complaints from people who want to take part in the challenge who say they don't relax often(bi monthly) and its only when they are relaxed they can check their length because that's when their hair is stretched out; for those people or people with natural hair you can either feel free to wait till you relax it to take the pictures for the challenge or try stretching your hair with your fingers and keeping your head straight (I have seen naturals do this to check their actual length) in any case so I don't sound like a strict/rigid teacher, I have decided that as long as you have your starting picture taken at the beginning of the year when the challenge started and you have your closing picture  taken at the end of the year when the challenge closes, you are qualified for the challenge, pictures in between are a welcome bonus but they dont have to be taken bi-monthly...hope thats fine with ladies who were not feeling the rules of the challenge!!
 
Thanks for all the support and next month when the import window opens, think about hair triggering for sure!!
 
Xxx

    1. Hi Dewunmi, lol@you want!! :) The type of glycerin I use it vegetable glycerin,its pure. I mix 1 part glycerin for 2 parts water, so lets say 1 cup of glycerin and 2cups of water or 2 cups of glycerine for 4cups of water. Im not sure about the glycerin with rosewater, if its those two ingredients, no fragrance or other ingredients then it should be fine but if it has other stuff in it, its most likely a facial cleanser and I wont be too keen to use it on my hair. Hope this helps :)
