The Green House Effect Method is
a natural and effective means of boosting hair growth due to the fact that it
allows the hair to retain moisture more efficiently. The steam effect created
penetrates into the scalp to increase average growth rate. It was started by Meeka,
who also started the Real Queens Regimen which involves using all natural
products and shampooing the hair once or twice a month for more on this regimen kindly check out the website
here. The way to do the green house effect is explained below:
1. Simply apply some oil on the
length of your hair however note that this step is optional
2. Put your hair in a bun, ponytail,
braids, twists or any other style.
3. Cover your hair with a plastic
cap, you can use more than one for extra warmth (and use a scarf over it as
well, you can also add an extra scarf or a bonnet) it is best to get enough warmth
4. Leave your hair covered overnight
or leave on for a long period of time. This will create a green house steam
effect in your hair.
5. Remove plastic cap and allow your
hair to dry naturally on its own or you can try to speed up the process by using
a blow dryer on a cool setting. Your hair should feel slightly damp and not
6. Moisturise and seal your hair as usual
and style your hair as desired.
For those relaxed ladies who wear

wearing a scarf on your head and using the plastic cap over your hair and then adding
You can use this method anytime
from one – five times a week, it is all about maintaining a healthy balance and
finding out what works for you. Please note that you do not need to wash your hair
after using this method.
The founder of this technique
states that we are not to oil our scalp prior to the ghe as this process is
supposed to stimulate the healthy production of sebum to our scalp which nourishes
and increases hair growth. However if you choose to use some oil on your scalp
you can do so which is what I do sometimes. Please note that it is also
recommended that no moisturiser is used on the hair prior to covering it, even
oil is optional. This is where this method varies from other methods such as the baggying method.
I have not been as diligent in
the ghe method as I could and I need to get on it pronto. This method is an
optional part of the Birthday Hair Growth Challenge however it is an excellent
way to achieve faster hair growth.
Has anyone tried this method and
benefited from it or have you tried other variants of this method? Or is this
something you will be willing to try to encourage hair growth? Kindly share.
