What Happens When Black Women Hair And Vicks Vapor Rub Collide?
Edges - The most important thing to a black women’s hair is getting her edges nice and healthy. If your edges are not laid then any hairstyle you try out won't look right. Unfortunately, due to tight weaves, tight braids, perms and other hairstyles many black women are left with little to no edges. It has left many women desperate to find remedies to try and grow their hair back. One Youtuber discovered a way to grow her edges back that may surprise you.
Vicks Vapor Rub isn't just for stuffy nose you can now use it to help grow back your edges. It is rumored to give significant hair growth taking an average of 30-60 days to see results.
Atlanta resident Jocquelyn Hill, shared her love for the product on her YouTube channel, Just Jocq, back in March 2016. They’re now more than 35K videos that can be viewed on YouTube highlighting the new use of Vicks.
"Some viewers say they place it on their scalp and do a scalp massage, and that Vicks VapoRub on their scalp stimulates the hair follicle," she shares. Jocquelyn goes on to explain exactly how one of her viewers does it.
She mixes Vicks VapoRub, castor oil, and coconut oil and applies that to her scalp and hair. She says she's retained and received a lot of hair growth from mixing Vicks VapRub and those items. However, the petroleum in Vicks has some women weary of using it. Petroleum is a flammable oil that can be prepared for use as gasoline.
"Vicks has petroleum in it, this is one product women don't want to put on their hair. Me personally I don't have a problem with petroleum, it's one ingredient I really don't have an issue with," vlogger Kimera Yvonne shares.
