With the help of scalp massaging, I was able to grow my hair from arm pit length to waist length in about 1 year and 6 months.

After reviewing several of my articles, I noticed I failed to mention scalp massaging. How can I overlook this? If you review my Feature of the Month post, you will notice I mentioned scalp massaging.
I scalp massage every wash day and several times per week. It is so automatic at this point that I simply overlooked documenting this step in previous blog posts.
Using Scalp Massaging to Grow Long Relaxed Hair Fast
How I Scalp Massage!
My massage sessions are quick and to the point. I prefer to massage with an oil or moisturizer to minimize the potential for broken or split hairs from the friction of the massage.
I apply product of choice to my hair and scalp and gently rub and knead the scalp while watching tv. I seriously can be done in about 2 minutes flat from applying product to scalp massaging, but hey, what fun is that. I normally massage for about 5 minutes so that I can get into the moment, relax and free my mind. Truth be told, I don’t watch the clock, I just massage and gauge it from there.
I’ve been using Jamaican Black Castor Oil for about 4 years and absolutely love it.
I’ve tried regular castor from the grocery store and there is no comparison. Jamaican Black Castor Oil softens hair from root to tip like nobody’s business. It has also helped to thicken some troubled areas along my hairline.

Some hair enthusiasts suggest regular castor and Jamaican Black Castor Oil work the same but that has not been my experience. I feel there is difference in thickness, application and effectiveness with Jamaican Black Castor Oil being the better of the two.
I often will transfer my Jamaican Black Castor Oil to an applicator tip bottle and add a few drops of peppermint oil since peppermint oil is stimulating and can also accelerate growth.
My newest love though is Hairitage Hydration’s Jar of Joe. It is simply divine and smells delicious like a fresh brewed cup of coffee (yum!). This is a quadruple threat because it can be used for skin moisturizing, hair sealing, shedding and growth. This product is formulated perfectly because my hair loves it despite it not being a fan of black coffee rinses for hair shedding.
Jar of Joe Ingredients: Coffee Butter (Coffea Arabica Seed Oil and Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil) Cocoa Butter, Castor Oil, Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil, Rosemary Extract, Coffee Essential Oil.
Sealing Your Hair
All of the products mentioned can be used to seal in moisture although I typically only use them for scalp massaging. On the rare occasions that I opt to seal with them, it is usually in the colder months because these are heavier products which offers lasting benefits in the chilly temps.
