|Wild Growth Hair Oil |
natural hair care product, good for normal healthy hair and dry, brittle hair
In fact, I discovered it while perusing through a magazine geared towards Black readership (I think it was Ebony or Essence). I was curiously skimming through the ads near the end of the magazine, when I noticed the ad for Wild Growth Hair Oil®. I sort of dismissed it the first few times that I saw it as a joke. It seemed that the advertisers were making unbelievable claims about their product, namely that it would grow your hair.
But, as time went on I revisited the ad and decided to take a chance with the product. I was very weary of messy hair care products like Luster's Pink Oil Moisturizer, which caused me to suffer from acne breakouts and greasy forehead syndrome. Wild Growth Hair OIl® was like a welcome respite.
I sauntered on down to a local beauty supply store and purchased a bottle. The going rate for this stuff is around $8 per 4 oz bottle. It is also available at Sally Beauty Supply stores.
It is a heavy, thick oil with a liquid consistency. It contains vitamins, other natural ingredients, and no mineral oil (Yay). It is really oily, so you don't need much. The manufacturer suggests only a few drops, 1-3 times per week. A little goes a long way with Wild Growth Hair Oil®. It does such a great job of softening my naps and locking the moisture into my hair.
I follow this up with a few spritzes of Soft Sheen Carson's Sta-Fo-Fro. I massage that combo into my hair and scalp real good, pick it out and I am good to go. My hair doesn't tangle or mat up, with regular use. When I stay on top of my regimen, split ends and breakage are minimal.
The manufacturer says that it is suitable for many hair types including, natural and chemically processed hair, African-American hair, Hispanic-Latino, Asian, Indian, Native-American, etc.
Although, I don't use it much for blow-drying, I find that it works just fine for this purpose. According to Wild Growth Co., it is also good for protecting and strengthening the hair during pressing, wig and weave use, braiding, and flat ironing.
The only thing that I don't care for, is the scent, which is difficult to describe. I don't know of anything else that smells like Wild Growth Hair Oil®. It is not a sweet, fragrant smell and it doesn't smell edible. It is not a foul, pungent odor, but it is not exactly pleasant, either. It is one of those weird scents that you acclimate yourself to and learn to tolerate with time. Once in a while, I experience a temporary tingling sensation after massaging Wild Growth Hair Oil® into my scalp.
In my opinion, the product does not work miracles. People shouldn't have the expectation that this product will grow their hair from bald to 6 inches of growth in 2 months. I don't have empirical evidence to support this, but it does appear to promote moderate hair growth.
When I use it consistently for months, I get great results. My hair always grows thicker and healthier. If it weren't for the fact that I prefer to keep my hair short, I know that my hair would be growing down my back by now. It is just easier for me to maintain by keeping it trimmed short to about 4 inches (I am lazy like that, you know).
Overall, I am very pleased with the value that I receive from Wild Growth Hair Oil®. There is nothing else like it, that I know of.
