The coconut oil hack that could make your hair grow faster

Short hair is badass, but the moment your shaggy shoulder-length cut, bob, or trendy bangs hit that awkward stage, sometimes you’re just over it If you’re lusting for long locks, seasonally things are already in your favor—sunshine’s vitamin D helps with hair and nail growth, but YouTube blogger Farah Dhukai recently revealed her best all-natural hack on Instagram (And it’s way safer than sketchy non-FDA-approved pills)

“The average amount of hair growth is six inches per year This is how I doubled my hair growth to 12 inches,” Dhukai posted Here’s her two-ingredient secret weapon: coconut oil and cayenne pepper Yep—that’s it

She made her blend using a 16-ounce mason jar, filling it halfway with coconut oil and adding two teaspoons of the red pepper Then, she stored it in a cool, dark place for a week Last, strained the mix and poured it in a squeeze bottle to make it easy to apply to her scalp

Here’s her two-ingredient hack: coconut oil and cayenne pepper Yep—that’s it

“The oil is infused with cayenne so it will slightly sting,” she warns, adding that the sting is the capsaicin doing its job, and that it should be applied to the scalp only—not all over your headBPOTD This brand new moisturizer seriously saved my dry. Her pro tip: “Do a test patch first to see how your skin handles it”

Her hack may seem too simple to actually work, but science backs up the claim that cayenne can help combat hair loss And coconut oil has been shown to help too
