If you take a few bubbles with shampoos and carefully read their composition, then surely in two cases out of four, in the list of substances you will find, oddly enough, a nicotinic acid (also vitamin PP, niacinamide, nicotinamide).
In medicine, it is used in the form of injections with a lack of certain vitamins in the body, in cosmetology, it is successfully used as an integral part of firming hair masks.
Nicotinic acid for hair growth proved its effectiveness, many girls who used it, noted the acceleration of hair growth.
Buy nicotinic acid can be in any pharmacy, it is sold in ampoules, and the cost of one pack does not exceed 50 rubles (in a pack of 10 ampoules). Often, pharmacists offer analogues of this substance, but usually they are much more expensive, and the effect of them is the same. Therefore, we are interested in the usual nicotinic acid in ampoules.
How does nicotinic acid for hair growth?
The mechanism of the “work” of the mask, which includes nicotinic acid, is as follows: under its influence the vessels in the skin of the head expand, as a result, a good flow of blood flows to the hair follicles, which causes the hair to become stronger and grow faster.
Vitamin PP It is very important for the hair, it moisturizes them, and is also responsible for the production of pigment. This of course does not mean that the use of vitamin PP can not be afraid of the appearance of gray hair, as the manifestation of gray hair often depends on the genes, but nevertheless it will not be worse from this vitamin.
For owners of dry and brittle hair, nicotinic acid is a real salvation, because it does not dry hair and is applied only to the scalp.
However, before taking this acid for active use, you should carefully read the paragraph in the instructions for its side effects.
With care, nicotinic acid should first be treated with allergies and hypertensive patients, i.e. before full use, conduct a mini-test on a small area of the scalp.
Nicotinic acid for hair growth and strengthening
If no unpleasant health effects are found, you can start making a mask. To do this, you need to buy nicotinic acid in the pharmacy and prepare a decoction of any herb (ideally - burdock, hops, but in principle, any herb will do), or squeeze out the juice of the "home doctor" - aloe.
Broth or juice will need 1 tablespoon, and nicotinic acid - 1-2 ampoules. If there is no time for cooking broth, then nicotinic acid can be rubbed in its pure form. Components must be mixed, and the resulting solution is applied to the hair.
Moreover, it should be done in a certain way: from the top of the head and forehead to go to the area behind the ears and the back of the head, rubbing the solution into the scalp. Then tilt your head and “walk” all over your head.
The exposure time of the mask with nicotinic acid
Keep a mask with nicotinic acid on the head is not less than 1.5-2 hours, then just wash your hair. Moreover, it is almost impossible to overdo the nicotine mask, rather the opposite - the more time it lasts on the hair, the better the effect.
At the same time from nicotinic acid, you will feel warmth on the scalp, perhaps tingling - this is a normal skin reaction and are not afraid of it.
It should not be forgotten that nicotinic acid has a rather specific odor. Although this is perhaps its only drawback. Otherwise, this tool is one of the leaders in strengthening hair and combating hair loss.
If you rub nicotinic acid for hair growth in its pure form, then you can wash it off, just apply it on your hair after washing and dry it.
The course of application of nicotinic acid for hair
Of course, the desired effect will not be achieved immediately. The course of treatment of hair with nicotinic acid is on average two weeks, it is advisable to make a mask every day.
It is often enough 10 masks, with intervals every other day, and sometimes there is a need for a course a month long. But this is the maximum allowable period of use of a nicotine mask, and the course should not be repeated more than once every 2-3 months to avoid excessive accumulation of nicotinic acid in the body, and, as a result, an allergic reaction to it.
The effect of nicotinic acid for hair
Since this method is quite new, the reviews about it are quite contradictory. Some argue that hair growth increases immediately and can be up to 3 cm per month. Others, with disappointment, state that the mask did not increase the height by a millimeter.
It is important to understand that everything is individual and this mask with the same success can accelerate hair growth, and may not show any effect. And to this we must be ready. Nicotinic acid for hair growth will only have a positive effect from its regular use, if you make a mask from time to time, you are unlikely to get the desired result. Therefore, to find out how this mask will affect the growth of your hair can only be experienced.
