How to use "The New Growth Promoter"
Q: Who can use The New Growth Promoter?
- Adults, both men and women can benefit from The New Growth Promoter.
Q: How do I use The New Growth Promoter for my hair type and texture?
- We generally recommend using our oil lightly up to 3x a week and using our minimal method for a hair oiling treatment before your final cleanse.
- A little of our oil goes a long way. The New Growth Promoter is not a heavy oil, but over-applying can create a greasy feel in anyone's hair.
- We recommend applying a drop of oil on the scalp three finger-widths apart from the following drop before massaging and spreading the oil to the areas where the drops were not placed.
- This method can help control how light or heavy your hair will feel after each application.
- Fine/Thin hair can be weighed down easily; we suggest only doing the oil treatment with a 10-minute massage before wash day if a loose style is desired.
Q: How can I use The New Growth Promoter while wearing protective styles, and what are the benefits?
The New Growth Promoter can be used on the scalp of every protective hairstyle! Nourish and stimulate your scalp while increasin the rate of your current hair growth. Use The New Growth Promoter to get closer to your hair goals with ease. Hydrate, apply, and massage up to 3x a week.
- We highly recommend hydrating your scalp first with water, tea, or a conditioning mist. No hair oil can hydrate your scalp, just like a facial or body oil cannot hydrate your skin. Your scalp is skin!
Bittersweet news - There is a high chance that you will outgrow your protective style faster than usual. If you wish to maintain your style longer, use the oil once a week, and increase your applications the closer you are to taking it down.
Q: How can I use The New Growth Promoter as an oil treatment for softer, fuller, longer, and healthier hair?
Hair oiling / Oil masking / HOT oil treatment
The minimal method - Using less oil for easy removal.
- Apply the oil to clean detangled and damp hair starting at the root and began to massage your scalp in side to side motions; a circular motion can lead to tangling and unnecessary hair loss.
- While massaging your scalp, run your hands down your shaft, transferring the excess oil from your roots down to the ends of your hair. This action is also described as "working the product into or throughout the hair."
- Cover your whole head with either a conditioning cap and or a microfiber towel to trap in heat. You can also sit under a hooded hairdryer.
- Leave the treatment in for at least an hour, we recommend overnight and cleansing in the morning.
What are the benefits of this method?
-The oil will penetrate effectively on clean hair and scalp. (We recommend only washing your hair once before this treatment)
- The oil will be much easier to wash out if done correctly. Soaking the hair in excess oil can make the removal process tedious, and you might even find oil still present in your hair after drying and or styling.
Excess oil present can cause the hair to be weighed, greasy and unresponsive to other hair care products you might apply.
Using less oil means that you have less oil to remove; in return, you can use less shampoo and less of your time washing your hair.
- This method can help you learn and practice using the right amount of product in your hair during each application enabling you to gain the same or even better results without using an excessive amount of the product.
What are the benefits of using the appropriate amount of product in your hair?
- Cost savings + Longer usage of your products – Haircare products can be expensive, especially when they are made with quality ingredients.
Using an appropriate amount of product during your applications will help them last longer. The benefit of knowing how long your products last will help you compare them to the future hair care formulas you might find interest in.
Ever heard of "a little goes a long way?" This can cause interest to peak towards a product advertised with this statement, but have you ever wondered if you are using the products you have at home correctly in the first place?
Let us mention that it is a person's overall technique when treating or styling and the general knowledge of the person's hair that helps a product "work."
For example: If you were to only co-wash your hair after an oil treatment, you might find that your curls are not "acting right" or cooperating when using a styling product. This is a result of product buildup, a clarifying shampoo is needed, but if you do not understand how products work or when you should use them, you might end up blaming the styling product for not defining your curls.
How can I stop overusing hair oil during my treatments, and what are the benefits?
- Starting your oil treatment on damp hair will help decrease the amount of oil you apply to your whole head because you are not looking to dampen your hair with the oil. Your hair and scalp will still benefit from a light and even coat of oil.
- Applying an excessive amount of oil to your hair or even "soaking it" can result in oil still being present in the hair, even after washing multiple times.
- Overusing oil during your treatments can cost you both product and time.
How can I tell if I used too much oil during my oil treatment?
- You are using too much oil if your hair is dripping oil and if you can gently squeeze excess oil out of your hair.
- Once your treatment is done, your hair should be weighed down, slightly oily and soft; if your hair is crunchy and you can still squeeze oil out of it when almost dry, then you applied an excessive amount of oil.
- For this method, your hair should hold more water than oil. Adding more oil does not boost any of the benefits. If the oil is evenly distributed throughout the hair and the scalp is massaged for at least 10 minutes, you will benefit from this treatment.
How can I effectively remove the oil from my hair after an oil treatment?
Do – Section the hair and use a clarifying shampoo.
Don't – Wash your full head at once (short hair can disregard the sectioning) or use a cleansing conditioner or conditioner to remove the oil treatment.
- Section your hair into parts using hair ties (How big your sections are will vary depending on the density, volume, and length of your hair.) The more hair you have, the smaller the sections.
- Run lukewarm water throughout your hair and massage for at least 60 seconds to help soften the oils
- With each section, apply shampoo and massage in two parts. First, focus on cleansing the scalp, let it sit, and continue with the middle and ends. This helps to ensure that the shampoo has saturated every strand of hair.
- If you find that you keep finding oily pieces of your hair after cleansing and drying, washing in sections rather than your full head at once can help prevent this.
- Once every section is done, rinse your whole head. Repeat once again.
- Follow up with a conditioner, detangle and rinse with either a chilled hair tea or cold water.
