Green house effect?

Like Tree12Likes

Has anyone tried this and had success or seen significant growth? Baggying doesn't work for me, but I was thinking of giving this a try (although the two methods are similar). Green house effect growth challenge anyone?

I am greenhousing my hair as I type this actually. I haven't been doing it long enough to notice length impact, ( I had been doing off and on for about 2 weeks, then stopped, and now started again). I did notice my hair is growing longer, but I think its too soon to credit it to the GHE. I do like how it keeps my hair moisturized when I do it overnight. The next morning my hair is good enough to walk out the door (TWA ). But I am up for the challenge.

You apply oil to damp (not wet) hair, braid or twist, then put on a shower cap and cover that with a scarf and a bonnet or winter cap. Go to bed and take it down in the morning. The shower cap and 2 covers produces a "steam" effect that helps stimulate oil production. You're supposed to do it before you go to bed because that's your hair's best time to grow.

Baggying never really worked for me either because my hair really does not like being left wet all the time. I have read about the GHE and would be will to try it on dry hair!

Shaaaame! I thought it was just another name for baggying! I might try this a few times a week with my bringraj oil. Not because I'm craving growth that much, but I just haven't figured out a role for this oil yet and need to use it!

My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse.

Love: QB - all of it, Bobeam - shampoo bars, Darcy's Botanicals - Pumpkin Seed Conditioner, Coconut Cupuacu Pomade, KBN - Shealoe Leave-in, Oyin - Juices & Berries, Kinky Curly - Knot Today, Ayurvedic treatments, my Denman and the cloud of kinky goodness on my head that I get to play with!
I have tried GHE, whole head baggie, and pony Baggie. The GHE and whole head Baggie makes my scalp feel grimy even when if it's not wet. Baggie pony is my favorite. If my hair feels dry I can pony Baggie it at night and bun during the day and it keeps my dry ends in check without the grimy scalp.

I tried to take some pics too, but only ended up with one that's usable.

So this is my starting point. I washed, deep conditioned, detangled, oiled (castor oil), and braided (about 12 total). Before I go to bed I'll put on my shower cap, scarf, and bonnet. Here goes!

About my hair:
weekly shampoo-HE Honey I'm Strong
daily conditioner-HE Honey I'm Strong (use as li)
go to style-Pocahontas braids
Ok, so last night I moisturized with grapeseed oil. I did about 12 two strand twists, put on my shower cap, scarf, and bonnet then went to bed. My hair is super soft this morning and is stretched, although it doesn't have very much definition. I haven't used any styling products though because I don't think I should since I'm trying this method. Maybe the more I twist or braid my hair, the more it'll take the shape I want.

The only downfall to the winter hat over the bonnet was it did smoosh the shape of my hair a bit, so I think I will go back to my trusty two bonnets. . And this saves me some time in the morning, I start work tomorrow, so no need to fiddle in my hair too much. Did you take down your twists while they were damp or were they fully dry?

shower cap is coming from???? I didn't add water before the oil last night. Is it sweat? Things that make you go hmmmmmmm.....
