Red Pepper


Admittedly, the trend towards going natural and organic is on the rise. Cures and remedies that were used centuries ago are now rediscovered as treatments for even modern day ailments. The list of herbs and plants include even the lowly yet very common red pepper.

What Is Red Pepper?

Red pepper is better known as a spice and cooking ingredient. It is derived from the fruit of the plant in the Capsicum family. It is usually fiery red and rarely grows to more than 4 inches in length. They are usually commercially available as dried and powdered extracts of the fruit. It is pungent, hot and has a strong bite. It is usually used as an ingredient for Mexican, Thai and Indian cooking.


Red Pepper is a popular folk remedy against baldness. It is applied to the scalp as a poultice to act as a skin irritant. This draws blood and nutrients around the applied area and triggers the release of histamines that stimulate cell division and hair follicle production.


Red pepper is also a natural source of Vitamin A, Vitamin B, Vitamin E and biotin. These are essential vitamins for growing and maintaining healthy hair.


Red pepper is also a rich source of other essential minerals that provides health benefits. Many herbal specialists believe that pepper enhances heart health, the functioning of the circulatory and digestive systems. There are claims that cayenne pepper, a common type of red pepper, is the most valuable herb known to date.

How To Use Red Peppers For Hair Loss Prevention

As with many natural remedies, red pepper can be taken orally in its raw form or semi-processed and dried preparations. Not all of us can tolerate pepper as a stand alone finger food. It would be a good idea to spice up your favorite dishes or beverages with red pepper and experiment with new flavor combinations.


For those who suffer hair loss but could not tolerate the biting taste of peppers, it can be applied topically on the scalp:


You will need to boil red peppers over medium heat for a short time.

When peppers are done, you have to extract the juice and liberally apply it on the scalp as you do with any shampoo or hair conditioner.

After applying, allow your hair and scalp to air dry.

* Never use hair dryers or curling irons as a dry the scalp can cause hair follicles to breakdown.




You may also turn ground pepper into a paste by mixing it with warm water and olive oil.

Apply this liberally on the scalp as you would with the pepper juice, giving special attention to areas with very little hair.

Leave the paste for 20 minutes unless your scalp gets overly irritated before the time expires.

Then rinse thoroughly, making sure that no nothing is left on the scalp and hair as prolonged exposure might lead to severe irritation.


Lastly, if you are not averse to pill popping, there are pepper supplements available in many vitamin shops, pharmacies and beauty and health sections in department stores. When using supplements, it is important to read and follow dosage instructions written on the labels.
