Hi I’m jamaican..will the method work with my hair . I had beautiful hair once but I cought Dandruff’s and it droped off and after years of doctors treatment and everything it won’t grow so what will I suggest. Its been like this for 7 years now
Hi Nalanie. We’re happy to hear you’ll be giving the inversion mehtod a go, and thank you for your question. The inversion method should be done for 1 week, with 2 weeks break, then repeated. I hope this helps 🙂
Most of us, when we think of hair loss, think about aging men. Nearly all men eventually get that receding M-shaped hairline and thinning hair on the top of the head, also known as male pattern baldness. It’s called androgenetic alopecia, and it’s caused by a by-product of testosterone called DHT.
I am on a tight budget, so I use regular veg oil, and beeten eggs for protein. When I get back on my feet again, I’ll use the coconut oil, I know it works. Until then what I am using is working, my hair is thicker, shinny, and longer, I have gotten comments on my hair, I’m 50 years old, my hair was thinning and brittle. It takes a while longer, but I’m happy. Now my ex-husband can eat his heart out at my daughter’s wedding in June, cause he loves long hair and mine is growing below my boobs. Lol
“Others are taking hair follicles out of human scalp and growing them with dermal papilla cells,” Cotsarelis says. “If they grow in culture, you might be able to recombine them with skin cells and form new follicles. This would let you expand the number of follicles you get for a hair transplant. This may not be that far off — five to 10 years, maybe. There’s very good evidence you will be able to do that.”
“People may still think of the wigs they would have seen in the 1970s or 1980s, very heavy, unnatural looking, more like an item of clothing. The latest systems are nothing like that at all,” says Jessica.
Hair grows everywhere on the human skin except on the palms of our hands and the soles of our feet, but many hairs are so fine they’re virtually invisible. Hair is made up of a protein called keratin that is produced in hair follicles in the outer layer of skin. As follicles produce new hair cells, old cells are being pushed out through the surface of the skin at the rate of about six inches a year. The hair you can see is actually a string of dead keratin cells. The average adult head has about 100,000 to 150,000 hairs and loses up to 100 of them a day; finding a few stray hairs on your hairbrush is not necessarily cause for alarm.
Hi! I recently have gotten a shoulder length hair cut and although I love it, I miss my long hair. I have been doing the inversion method for about a week and it doesn’t seem to be doing much. I hope to try and grow it 7 inches by April (it is now October.) Could I be doing something wrong? Thank you!
For this client, we balayaged caramel pieces around her face then gave her lots of layers blending down from the fringe. For styling, we used a smoothing cream to help blow dry and control frizz and added Unite’s Boosta Spray for a little body while blow drying. I then went back in with Unite’s Argan Oil to smooth any flyaways and gave her a loose beachy wave. We finished with a spray wax to tousle and give that lived-in look.
On average, hair grows half an inch a month but how would you like to grow your hair over an inch in just one week? Find out how you can more than triple your hair growth AND grow brand new hairs here.
Hey! In somewhere in may I had got a layered hair cut. I liked it but then started not liking it after 3 months so I cut it again into a layers. when the stylist cut my it was horrible. Absolutely horrible. I felt like crying because my hair was ruined. My friends made fun of me because of my hair. After 4 months it grew. And I cut it straight but the hairs on the top of my head were still very short. (About 4 inches difference between my top hair and low hair) It still looks horrible so I had to clip the top hair up. The next month later I again cut my hair straight. This all happened in December and now it’s 23ed Feb 2016. My hair still looks weird. I’m desperate for my top hair to grow faster. I have just tried to heat up coconut oil and message my scalp with it. I also tie my hair into two plaits. Could you please give me some tips on how to grow my top hair faster? I want it Atleast 4 inches long but quickly. If you know Lindsey Stirling you’ll see that her top hair is very short from her bottom hair. Please reply as soon as.possible.
Hair grows at 0.50 inches on average per month which to me sounds like a lot but in reality why doesn’t it feel it? Well, things like over-styling, bad diet and not taking good care of your hair can result in split ends and breakages which shorten the length of your hair.
B-5 and biotin no evidence that it works for people who are not biotin deficient A study that looked at oral supplements containing biotin and zinc found that they helped decreased hair shedding and improved hair quality and strength.
More importantly, according to a research about hair benefits of cold water [1] wash the hair with cold water. In fact, hot water can cause your hair to dry out and become brittle. So, washing the hair with cold water in order to help the hair shaft grow healthy, protecting it from damage and breakage.
Hey, I would try out the henna method. Question is how often I am suppose to do this treatment? I have tried so many methods and nothing worked out. I would appreciate if my doubts are cleared. Thanks a million!
After treating hair with CsA, the scientists analyzed the gene expressions of isolated human scalp hair follicles. They found that CsA changed how the follicles expressed a protein called SFRP1, which stunts the development and growth of hair follicles and other tissues in the body.
I also remind my guests that this type of double process service must be done slowly and that they must commit to using Aveda’s Damage Remedy line at home to ensure the hair is at its healthiest. Healthy hair enables my guests to change their hair color more often.
Thanks for the comments! Happy to hear you like the blog post. Coconut oil is fantastic, I love it for many uses. Make sure you check out my article on the other uses – https://experthometips.com/21-clever-uses-for-coconut-oil-that-may-surprise-you
I will definitely be trying this advice. My hair is currently at my waist, but my man would love for it to reach my ankles lol. My issues are dry brittle hair that also falls out easily. I love extremely hot showers and am certainly not looking forward to the cold rinse, but if it does nothing but stop it from falling out so easy, it’s definitely worth a try. Thanks for the advice. I’m also amazed at the amount of people still asking, How do I make my hair grow faster?” Um, try actually reading the article, or if needed, read it again.
I am a survivor all of my hair was gone and it is coming back ,but very slow.I have some organic flax oil with lignans can I use that? I really want my hair back, because I do not like the mascular look. Thank God for you
– Eat a healthy diet high in protein and iron , chick peas are great for hair health because your getting enough iron & protein that you need . You can also include other healthy foods like meat , chicken , Salmon , dairy products , fruit and vegetables and supplements like biotin which is great for keeping the hair strong and healthy , if none of these options work go to the doctor and have some blood test done to see what is causing it , overall I hope these options work for you .
Want some expert tips on how to maintain your healthy head of hair? First, you can start with good nutrition. By eating two to three servings of protein a day you can maintain a normal hair growth cycle. Wear wide-brimmed hats whe…
Thinning hair itself can be a source of stress. Calm your mind by doing everything you can to help your hair be healthy, like using natural products, making healthy lifestyle choices, and getting all your vitamins.
If you want an asymmetric look for your bob but aren’t ready to commit, wear one side behind your ear. It will give the illusion of an asymmetric haircut. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll be ready to visit your hairstylist and actually get the haircut.
“For individuals with hair loss, treatments can be very hit and miss, there isn’t one which is universally effective. For that reason new treatments are exciting as they give people more treatment options that may be effective.
Hi Emily, thanks for getting in touch. I would definitely do the inversion method using a scalp massager every 4 weeks. I can’t think of anything more to add to the list, but I like to take in Biotin rich foods through a smoothie in the morning as it’s absorbed by your body at a faster rate. I mix a handful of spinach and kale with half a banana, 1/4 avocado, almonds and brazil nuts. I always make sure I eat a protion of brocolli every other day. Some people recommend pumpkin seed oil for hair growth – I have not tried it myself but many blogger swear by it.
Hi there, it’s really up to you. I tried all these at the same time and it worked for me, but I have done the inversion method without the other tips at it also worked. I just felt the oils and foods really helped strengthen my hair at the same time.
Hi Gabrielle, Sorry to hear you’re insecure about your hair. To find out if you’re losing hair, you need to go to the doctors or see a specialist. They will look at your scalp for any evidence of this, including bald patches. Most of the time, hair gets thinner towards the ends as it splits. Regular cuts along with hair masks should help with this. I hope this helps 🙂

Biotin, also known as Vitamin H, forms a part of the B-complex group of vitamins that help turn food into fuel for energy. It also assists in the metabolism of fats, carbs and amino acids which are the building blocks of protein.
These remedies do work! I apply beaten eggs to my hair once every week and olive oil works wonders too! Adding a few cloves of garlic to the olive oil for a week or two before you use it makes it even better! I have thick long brown hair which reaches just past my waistline. And I’m 5’8, so well you can guess how long that must be. 🙂
Hi my name is Angie and my hasn’t grown in 2 years and nothing seems to be working my hair dresser says it is really healthy to and I have curly African Caucasian hair and I need ur help! I have tried everything!
To block hormonal action and help to slow the progression of hair loss in men, a doctor or dermatologist may prescribe finasteride, a prescription-only medication designed to be taken once a day. Side effects of the drug are uncommon, but include decreased sex drive and sexual dysfunction.
“In the late 1980s, the standard of care was to take large grafts, plugs of 12 to 20 hairs, and implant them,” he says. “It would give either a very good or acceptable result. But some men, as they got older and lost some more hair, they got that doll’s-hair or corn-row phenomenon: Little poles of hair jutting out.”

To put it plainly, thick refers to the actual width of a single strand of hair, while density is how closely packed the hair follicles are on your scalp. Hair can have high density, which is when there’s a lot of strands growing near each other, or have low density, which is when the follicles are more spaced out on the scalp. Usually, straight strands tend to be denser than tight curls or afro hair.
Hi Airyeez, thanks for taking the time to write to me and sharing your thoughts on the article and the tips. I recommend the inversion method a lot (even though I can’t guarantee it will work for everyone) because it’s free, it’s easy to do and it worked for me. I think it’s fairly easy to try out, and there is no cost involved if you do it without oil, so it is my go-to tip! I firmly believe diet is really important too which is why I ask people to follow the tips in the article – some people may not be able to implement all but diet and scalp massage is really beneficial not just for hair growth but healthy hair and body. Good luck with your hair growth, I really hope you’ll notice a difference. Please keep me updated!
Apply a volumizing conditioner to the strands and roots of your hair every time you shampoo. Avoid putting the conditioner on the top of your head near the roots of the hair, which can make hair appear thinner by weighing it down.
Hi Nalanie. We’re happy to hear you’ll be giving the inversion mehtod a go, and thank you for your question. The inversion method should be done for 1 week, with 2 weeks break, then repeated. I hope this helps 🙂
I have tried everything to make my hair grow faster for the past 5 years now, I know it takes patience but everything I try damages and dries it out. I’m uneducated about hair care and I could really use the help because I miss my long locks, anything I can do to speed up the process a little, I heard hemp oil and argan oil are good oils for your hair but I want to help my hair without going extravagant in price
Thick hair is a hairstylist’s best friend when it comes to event styling. Normally, we’d have to put padding or extensions to make the hair look thicker and do a lot of teasing. With thick hair, all you really have to do is curl and pin things in place!
This hairstyle is layered short and tight on the sides and in the back. It is longer and layered on the top, then connected to the hair on the sides and in the back. It is shorter in the back and gradually gets longer to the front, making the pieces instantly function as a trendy fringe.
Hi Riru, sorry to hear this. I’m afraid I don’t know too many professionals that could help you apart from Belgravia in the UK – http://www.belgraviacentre.com/ – give it a look, they have some interesting information on hair loss that could be of help to you. Best of luck.
Usually, patients can see it start working in 6 to 8 months, but it can also decrease sex drive, increase breast size, and contribute to erectile dysfunction, according to Merck Manuals. It’s also dangerous for pregnant women to touch the crumbly pill powder.
Our fine-haired sisters think we’ve got it easy just because we can do a doughnut bun without wearing a sock on our head, but having a mess of hair is sometimes, well, a mess. Here, finally, the solutions to the biggest thick-hair problems—except for clogging up your drain. Alas, we can’t help you there.
“You never want the section of hair you’re brushing to be wider than the brush,” says Santiago. A little serum—Santiago likes Oribe Smooth Style Serum—will also make the brush go through your hair more smoothly. “Apply it to the midsection of the hair, not at the roots.”
Hi I like the way ur respond any way I have 3c and 4a type hair from the day if born still I want at least down my shoulder hair I have tried all expect gelatin for a years still my hair is 10 up 12 inch noting change but it’s healthy sometimes it broke I don’t what shampoo I use or condition so I use sulfet free please do u have any idea which kind of hospital they know my problem lol thank u dear
Hi Paige. Sorry to hear you’re frustrated with your hair. Coconut oil will definitely help with the nourishment, as should also help it from tangling. I would, however, recommend the inversion method to encourage hair growth and also make sure you are eating a variety of fruits and vegetables to provide your hair with all the nourishment it needs. I hope this helps. Thanks, Steph
The key to a good style starts in the shower. We washed and conditioned with L’Oreal B6 Biotin. We then used Dual Stylers by Techni.art Liss and Pump-up (also by L’Oreal) for volume with a velvety smooth finish. I finished the look with Kevin Murphy Shimmer.Shine and a little hairspray!
i also have done hair smoothing because my hair was very curly and very short (about 9inch only ) but doing a proper haircare and these remedies help me to grow my hair faster(now my hair is35inch long)
This article was really helpful for my hair growth. Thanks a lot anushka. Your article was so interesting and I hope you would make more articles like this. This article was very meaningful and I love it! Thanks a lot!
Sure, snapping a hair tie (or two) every time you try to pull your hair up into a ponytail will understandably make your friends, family, co-workers, and the stranger standing next to you in the public bathroom mirror envious that you have thick, long strands. But, is your hair actually thick or do you just have a lot of it, and how important is it to know the difference?
I hello, I am new to theses natural remedies to help with hair growth. I did try thr egg beaten and then used the big tub of cocnt oil but how do I get it to spread easier it just wants to stay in chunks and hard to spread.?
Scalp scientist (trichologist) Shirley McDonald recently told Business Insider that other cosmetic fixes like hair transplants are getting much better, and instead of looking like “doll’s hair,” as they used to, they’re getting quite convincing.
How long the anagen phase lasts depends on how long your hair is and if the cells in your follicle base are continuing to multiply and become hair cells. Hair grows because matrix cells shed some of their structure as they reach the upper follicle. The shed structure combines with keratins to form hair strands that exit your skin’s surface.
I was enjoying reading your supplied information – until you mentioned bathing and the Catholic Church – I googled the same topic and discovered that you were definitely wrong in your assertions that the catholic Church banned bathing in the Middle Ages. The Church did no such thing. As an educator and a History enthusiast it annoys me no end when writers, commentators etc make sweeping statements whether it be about a particular church, faith belief, society, peoples, etc that they obviously know nothing about. For me the lack of research points also to an ignorance, a laziness, on the side of the writer who just wants to be popular, like a child, or wants to sound as if they actually know something. Stick to what you know please. You only make a fool of your self otherwise!
Hi Thanks for sharing these tips but I just have one question. If you use the inversion method and massage every other day with coconut oil without breaking for four weeks in between treatments until your hair is your desired length will it stop working after awhile or damage your hair? Basically what I’m asking is why do you break for four weeks? Thank you!
i had a big chop (cut off my hair) in august 2015, my hair is growing really long but the middle part is veeery slow at growing and it is shorter than the rest of my hair… should i cut my hair again or is there something i can use for my hair to be the same length?
Every mornin on an empty stomach have a glass full of carrot o beetroot juice. Do not brush ur hair when its wet. Also oil ur hair atleast 2 hours before ur bath. Have multivitamin supplements daily at nite before sleeping. Have a good haircut atleast every 4 months.

I got a pixie cut about 4 days ago and I’m regretting it so much, yes my hair is healthier but I HATE IT!!! I want it to be at least at my shoulders rn. My hair usually grows 1-1 1/2 inches a month, do u think I could double or triple that in a month. I honestly dont even want to go to school like this, Plz HELP!!!
Similarly out of fashion are flap-type procedures, where a flap of hair from a hair-bearing area is partially removed, swung around, and attached to a frontal area. But this can lead to scarring or death or a portion of the scalp.
Until then, one other great way to treat baldness is to embrace it, and choose the shaved head look. Research suggests this strategy could score you some serious street cred: people tend to assess smooth-headed baldies as both stronger and taller than their hair-brained counterparts.
Spinach is an important vegetable for hair growth because it’s high in protein and vitamins A and C which your body needs in order to produce sebum to moisturise your scalp. A deficiency in these vitamins can result in brittle hair or even hair loss so make sure you are eating plenty of spinach in your diet.
Alopecia is a hair loss disease that can occur in anyone at any stage of life. Specifically Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease that causes hair to spontaneously fall out. It is mainly characterized by bald patches on the scalp or other parts of the body, and can ultimately cause baldness across the entire body. This disease interferes with the hair growth cycle by causing a follicle to prematurely leave the anagen, or active growth, phase and enter the resting, or telogen phase. The hair growth in the affected follicles is lessened or stopped completely.
When your hair is dry, do a dry brush from the head downward once every day. Use a wooden bristle brush that stimulates the scalp and pulls the natural oils produced at the top of the head down to the ends. This will naturally hydrate your hair.

Now, in terms of one of the most immediate results when trying to figure out how to thicken hair, I suggest you start using rosemary oil. The uses of rosemary oil extend to helping stimulate hair growth, as when applied over the scalp. Many people also claim that it can prevent baldness, slows graying, and can be used to treat dandruff and dry scalp. While rosemary oil does need further study when considering hair growth, I’ve found it very promising.
During the telogen or resting phase (also known as shedding phase) the follicle remains dormant for one to four months. Ten to fifteen percent of the hairs on one’s head are in this phase of growth at any given time. In this phase the epidermal cells lining the follicle channel continue to grow as normal and may accumulate around the base of the hair, temporarily anchoring it in place and preserving the hair for its natural purpose without taxing the body’s resources needed during the growth phase.
I shaved my head this time last year and had about 8 inches of growth from that time. Growing fast is totally an issue for me but also once I grow it out the bottom 3 inches or so are dead. And I mean D.E.A.D. frizzy, white nasty dead ends. What the heck causes that and what do I do?
I just got my hair cut to around mid-back but before that I had waist length hair. I really miss my long hair and want to know how well the inversion-with-coconut-oil method works. I’m hoping by the end of this month my hair will be back to it’s original length. Is it possible for it to all grow back in a month? (I just started the inversion method)
Getting regular trims gives you the appearance of having thicker hair. In the long run, regularly trimming the hair also helps your hair grow healthy from root to tip. This is also among the most amazing tips on how to grow thick hair naturally at home in one month that I would like to share in the entire article today and people should not skip at all costs!
I have rapid hair fall since 2months I tried eggs but use of egg led to more hair loss what should I do?? M not getting any option m making two plates even but my hair is falling down rapidly and I m 15 years old what should i do pls suggest
The catagen phase, also known as the transitional phase, allows the follicle to, in a sense, renew itself. During this time, which lasts about two weeks, the hair follicle shrinks due to disintegration and the papilla detaches and “rests,” cutting the hair strand off from its nourishing blood supply. Signals sent out by the body (that only selectively affect 1 percent of all hair of one’s body at any given time) determine when the anagen phase ends and the catagen phase begins. The first sign of catagen is the cessation of melanin production in the hair bulb and apoptosis of follicular melanocytes.[4] Ultimately, the follicle is 1/6 its original length, causing the hair shaft to be pushed upward. While hair is not growing during this phase, the length of the terminal fibers increase when the follicle pushes them upward.
Hi there, I also have hypothyroidism and found that by switching to a more natural form of med ie NatureThroid or NP Thyroid, I have noticed dramatic improvements not only to my hair but also to my all around well being. You may want to consider talking with your doctor. BTW: I did have to find a doc that was not only a primary care/endocrinologist…but also trained in natural medicine. The reg MD’s are not trained to prescribe natural thyroid remedies…but funny..CVS and Walgreens both stock and fill my new scripts…so this amazing natural med is not hard to find..you just have to find a doc to work with you
Hey, I would try out the henna method. Question is how often I am suppose to do this treatment? I have tried so many methods and nothing worked out. I would appreciate if my doubts are cleared. Thanks a million!

I’ve been searching for a hair grow vitamin from France, made with fish oils. I read that Demi Moore used it after she shaved her head for the movie G.I. Jane, and have been searching for it ever since! Can you help me find it?
Wow, that’s the height of stupidity and ignorance. Firstly, hair is extremely porous, so oil, eggs, juice of onion or pastes like amla will absolutely heal both scalp and hair follicle. Second, eyebrows and eyelashes can start to fall and skin can begin to become stressed out from too much washing or facial scrubbing. Last, it is universally acknowledged that daily hair washing is not desirable and contributes to hair loss. Where did you get your information???
The speed at which your hair grows can depend on two things: genetics and the shape of your follicles. Asian hair is on average the thickest and most coarse hair compared to Caucasian and African hair. Now I am of Asian descent but my mother has very thin hair while my father has very thick hair. I have a combination of both their hair so I have thick hair strands but unfortunately not much of them!
Hair is considered to be a major component of an individual’s general appearance, and the psychological impact of hair loss results in detrimental changes in self-esteem and self-worth. It also affects a large number of people, as 50 percent of men are affected by genetic hair loss by the age of 50. In women, the major cause of hair loss before the age of 50 is nutritional, with 30 percent affected. The main cause of hair loss for women appears to be depleted iron stores, but corrections of these imbalances can stop the excessive hair loss within a few months. (15)
Do u do the inversion head massage with coconut oil on dry, unwashed hair or wet, clean hair? If done on dry hair, how long until washed out & how much coconut oil shld I use?

The look I created here is effortless. My client is low maintenance, but in no means sloppy. We took her faded out summer golden blonde and used Wella color to add dimension and shine and cut it into a medium bob with lots of texture.

I wish my hair daily because I am a blonde and I workout most days of the week so my hair gets drenched in sweat (it’s not ideal) but I only shampoo the roots and hold the rest out of the way. I use regular conditioner and also leave in conditioner.

The team first set about trying to figure out the molecular mechanism of the drug, before then carrying out a full gene expression analysis of individual human hair follicles, donated by people undergoing hair transplants, which had been treated with CsA. They were able to show that the drug inhibited a particular gene, SFRP1, which has in previous studies been shown to inhibit the growth of tissues, most crucially including hair follicles.
Telogen – Also known as the resting phase. The follicle remains dormant and the hair will be anchored in place. Depending on the strength of the follicle, it will eventually soften and the hair will eventually break free and shed.
In most people, scalp hair growth will halt due to follicle devitalization after reaching a length of generally two or three feet. Exceptions to this rule can be observed in individuals with hair development abnormalities, which may cause an unusual length of hair growth.

Hi I had the same problem as you and I have to tell you….you have to stop using shampoo and cut the dead parts of your hair off or little by little cut and inch off every two months. For shampoo, use egg white and yolk but separate them into different bowls first. take an electric beater and beat the egg white until it is extremly foamy and theres almost no liquid left…mostly “bubbles” and then add in the yolk and beat until well blended. massage this into every inch of your hair everyday and if you’re afraid of the smell use a drop of essential oil. for conditioner mix a ratio half conditioner and half raw honey but honestly you dont need conditioner after what I tell you. Also when washing out eggs wash out with ice cold water otherwise eggs will be cooked in the hair. The next treatment is proven to work and should only be done if you have no health problems whatsoever. Heat up oliive oil, coconut oil, or rosemary oil. no other oil will work and massage on scalp and ends until everything is covered in oil but not soaked in oil. dip you head upside down for four minites and then do whatever you want but leave the oil in your hair for 2 hours and then wash it out with the egg. Leave egg mixture on hair until it dries and then rinse out. YOU MUST NOT USE SHAMPOO and also OLIVE OIL TREATMENT EVERYDAY FOR A WEEK. NO LONGER THAN THAT AND THEN AFTER A WEEK OF BREAK REPEAT THE OLIVE OIL. your hair will grow 3-4 inches in a week if done right
Why is this pattern of hair loss only in the front and on top? That’s where hormone-sensitive follicles live. The follicles on the sides and back of the head aren’t affected by DHT and usually stay healthy.
On the 20th of December 2017, I was playing with my short, dried hair (which was on average 1 inch) in the front of my head but I accidentally tangled it so bad that I had to cut it off with a pair of stationnary scissors. It is very noticeable when I have a high ponytail but you can’t see it when I have a low ponytail when it is split down the middle. Luckily it’s quite small (2.5cmx1.5cm) but I’m scared that it might not grow back. Do you think it will grow back and if so, what do you recommend for my hair?
Hi there, it’s really up to you. When I apply coconut oil and do the inversion method I do wash my hair every day, but if you don’t like doing this then you can use the oil only before days you wash your hair. I hope that makes sense!
The discovery that CsA could potentially offer a fourth solution is exciting. “Clearly though, a clinical trial is required next to tell us whether this drug or similar compounds are both effective and safe in hair loss patients,” Dr Hawkshaw pointed out. But for people who suffer from hair loss, knowing new avenues are opening to explore a remedy will be a relief.

I need my original length as soon as possible .. I want the result within 2 months 🙁 Please suggest me some ideas… I dont lyk this length of hair…
If you want to know how to thicken hair, then you also need to consider what you’re eating. Along those lines, I also recommend that you introduce flaxseeds into your diet. Flaxseeds benefits including thickening your hair because of its lignans — a group of chemical compounds found in plants — and omega-3 fatty acids. These anti-inflammatory ingredients also aid in improving your skin.
Usually, you can easily decipher density by simply looking in the mirror. If you can see traces of your scalp when your hair is in its natural state, it’s highly likely that you have low density. As for thickness, if you take a single strand between your fingers and feel absolutely nothing, chances are your strands are fine.

The catagen phase, also known as the transitional phase, allows the follicle to, in a sense, renew itself. During this time, which lasts about two weeks, the hair follicle shrinks due to disintegration and the papilla detaches and “rests,” cutting the hair strand off from its nourishing blood supply. Signals sent out by the body (that only selectively affect 1 percent of all hair of one’s body at any given time) determine when the anagen phase ends and the catagen phase begins. The first sign of catagen is the cessation of melanin production in the hair bulb and apoptosis of follicular melanocytes.[4] Ultimately, the follicle is 1/6 its original length, causing the hair shaft to be pushed upward. While hair is not growing during this phase, the length of the terminal fibers increase when the follicle pushes them upward.
Human hair follicles are very sensitive to the effects of radiation therapy administered to the head, most commonly used to treat cancerous growths within the brain. Hair shedding may start as soon as two weeks after the first dose of radiation and will continue for a couple of weeks. Hair follicles typically enter the resting telogen phase and regrowth should commence 2.5 to 3 months after the hair begins to shed. Regrowth may be sparser after treatment.
I also wanted to add, I believe protecting the head from sun exposure (UV) is important, as presented by an earlier poster. (Despite his spelling issues, I don’t think this issue should be discounted, and in his defense, I think his grammar issues are due to being a non-native English speaker. There might be some helpful knowledge in his post).
I was suffering of hair loss for almost 15 years and now after taking Fish Oil Omega-3 tablet I have seen regrowth of hair. So thanks to the Drs who are always sharing their knowledge to others and also for the suggestion given trough the internet. I would like to ask anyone who has a good knowledge about important health issues please post it so that we human beings can access it and use it till we are alive. Thank you Dr Axe Fans

Take several drops of rosemary oil and mix it with some benefit-rich olive oil. Massage that mixture into your scalp for just a couple minutes and leave it in there for anywhere from three to four hours. 
Hi Ruby, I’m afraid I can’t guarantee the rapid hair growth as everyone is different but from my personal experience I managed to grow my hair 1 inch in a week when I did all the above tips. Please give it a go and be sure to measure a section of your hair before and after. Good luck!
Hi Rach really sorry to hear about your predicament! Please follow the advice outlined in the article to help boost hair growth. You should hopefully notice a different with the inversion method and a change in your diet to more Biotin-rich foods. Good luck!
I had chemotherapy and radiation for tonsil cancer about 10 years ago and I can’t get my hair to grow no matter what I’ve tried. I was told to try coconut oil and a regrowth hair product. Will it work or any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated
Mix one tablespoon of Indian gooseberry or amla powder in two tablespoons of coconut oil and heat until boiling. Strain the oil and massage it onto your scalp before going to bed. The next morning, shampoo your hair as usual. Do this on a weekly basis.
This is for ‘Rain’ You will find fenugreek seeds at any shop that sells Indian Spices. It is an essential in making curry so they sell it by the bucket load. Alternatively, look for a spice shop online. I live in Spain, and I can find it. Good luck, and try making a curry from scratch! Jenna

I’m trying to grow my hair long as I recently cut my hair and realised that even after one month it didn’t grow. I’m definitely going to try this method out and I’ll come back and tell you if it’s working!
Can help u so use olive oil or any type of oil soak the oil in your hair for at least 20-30 min this will prevent no itchy scalp or thin hair wash the oil out or leave it in overnight them wash with a mild shampoo and will be as light as a feather thanks hope this comment/suggestion worked bye xxxxx ??????
Hi Airyeez, thanks for taking the time to write to me and sharing your thoughts on the article and the tips. I recommend the inversion method a lot (even though I can’t guarantee it will work for everyone) because it’s free, it’s easy to do and it worked for me. I think it’s fairly easy to try out, and there is no cost involved if you do it without oil, so it is my go-to tip! I firmly believe diet is really important too which is why I ask people to follow the tips in the article – some people may not be able to implement all but diet and scalp massage is really beneficial not just for hair growth but healthy hair and body. Good luck with your hair growth, I really hope you’ll notice a difference. Please keep me updated!
It’s still not entirely clear how minoxidil works. And there’s disagreement about how well it works. Used properly — twice a day, massaged deep into the scalp — it slows new hair loss. It also promotes new hair growth, although experts disagree about how much.
Getting regular trims gives you the appearance of having thicker hair. In the long run, regularly trimming the hair also helps your hair grow healthy from root to tip. This is also among the most amazing tips on how to grow thick hair naturally at home in one month that I would like to share in the entire article today and people should not skip at all costs!
Hi Nicki. Although I didn’t write this article, I have had wonderful results trying some of Anushka’s tips. The inversion method in particular worked really well for me 🙂 I’d definitely give it a go!
Onions, normally seen as a humble kitchen staple, may have uses other than simply adding flavor to our food. It might sound surprising to some, but onion juice is also a home remedy for hair loss. Learn more.
Blood from the blood vessels in your scalps feeds the root which creates more cells and makes hair grow. In this article, you will find tips that will both directly boost cells of protein and blood flow which should result in faster hair growth.
Hi Clare, You need to massage the oil into the roots of your hair to reap the full effects. It’s best to leave the oil on for a while in order to allow it to penetrate your hair follicles properly. I hope this helps 🙂
Research suggests that insufficient levels of vitamin D have been implicated in a variety of autoimmune diseases, including alopecia areata. A cross-sectional study involving 86 patients with alopecia areata, 44 patients with vitiligo and 58 healthy controls was conducted. Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin vitamin D levels in patients with alopecia areata were significantly lower than those of the patients with vitiligo and the healthy controls. Furthermore, a significant inverse correlation was found between disease severity and serum 25(OH)D levels in patients with alopecia.
It will all depend on preference and what your needs are. Egg is great for hair but is also drying, so if you have drier hair you’ll want more oil to water, but less than egg. If you have oily hair use more water to oil, but again, less than the amount you have in egg. I’d say use a tablespoon at a time and perhaps try a 1:2 or if you have longer hair 2:4/4:8 etc.
hey L I am a vegeterian and am low in Iron, does that affect the thickness of the hair? I am trying NOT to take supplements however I will do anything to get thick hair ( I will do anything for thick hair)
A stem cell research team from Yokohama National University used a “simple” method to regrow hair on mice by using dimethylpolysiloxane, the silicone added to McDonald’s fries to stop cooking oil from frothing.

I have tried everything to make my hair grow faster for the past 5 years now, I know it takes patience but everything I try damages and dries it out. I’m uneducated about hair care and I could really use the help because I miss my long locks, anything I can do to speed up the process a little, I heard hemp oil and argan oil are good oils for your hair but I want to help my hair without going extravagant in price
First of all don’t wash your more than once a week. take a mixture of egg, olive oil, n milk..apply twice a week n wash vd very mild shampoo n lukewarm water. Apply oil of coconut, olive or mustard regularly n don’t wash for few days or even u can stay for a week. N wash as per said above.100 %results noticed. Experienced on myself. Hope it helps.

Nothing but a wig would improve the condition of my thinning hair after a major illness some years ago, but the Tea Tree Shampoo is the best shampoo so far (and I’ve tried quite a few). I’ve been using this shampoo for about a month now and am really pleased with the results. Even my hairdresser commented last week that my hair was looking better than it has for a while and asked what product I was using. It’s packed full of essential oils so the smell is unbelievably good too.
Not every time no, Anu. You can alternate the days – one day with oil, one day without and so on. Split ends – prevention is better than cure I’m afraid. Once it’s split longer than 1 cm you can hide the split with serum but it’s best to get regular trims and use a weekly moisturising treatment, avoid heat and so on.
Search for people whose eyes have changed colour naturally thanks to a raw diet. Thats the only time I’ve heard of eyes becoming lighter. don’t put anything in your eyes apart from sterile herbal eye drops – eyes are fragile!!!

Hi there, thank you ever so much for sharing your tips for healthy hair growth. It all sounds very, very good. I’m really interested in hair growth, especially after I too cut my hair into a short pixie cut! Food really is the key to growing healthy hair, almonds and avocados are both delicious and boost your hair growth. You should also try getting some broccoli into your diet if you haven’t already. Please do try the scalp massage, it really can work on some people! Thanks again for sharing.
Sangeetha… I have fine blond hair. I have tried 100’s of products. Some hairdressers over process. (if you ask for a weave, ask for 5 foils, not a partial or full weave) avoid over processing. And, do not use that hot flat iron on your hair.

Hi Julia, sorry to hear that. For the time being I would try not to concentrate on hair growth and more about treating your hair well and getting it back to good health. I would eat plenty of protein-rich foods, treat your hair to a weekly hair mask on the ends and gentle scalp massage. Try not to use any heated tools on your hair, and wash it using lukewarm water – avoid burning hot water – and your hair should be feeling better soon.

Hair follicles are highly sensitive to hormones, and vitamin D is a hormone that plays an important role in calcium homeostasis, immune regulation and cell growth differentiation. In the scientific world, it’s well-known that alopecia areata is commonly found in patients with vitamin D deficiency, vitamin D-resistant rickets or vitamin D receptor mutation. (9)

Hi Mrunmayee. Your hair’s rate of growth depends on many different factors, so giving an accurate estimate would be hard. The hair grows an average of 1/2 inch per month, so if you measure from your shoulders to your waist, you should get a rough idea of how long this will take. Speed the process up by trying some of our hair growth tips! 🙂
Hi, i am Neha. I am very depressed by my hair health. When i was in school i had thick and long locks, but my hairs have come to its half thickness. Please let me know some tips which can help me gain my hairs back. Please help me.
now my hairs are strong,thick,and shiny….all my friends ask me what did you use??? but I keep it secret…and now I can happiely leave my hairs loose….and move out for a party, shopping and do much more….try it …
Bobs don’t always have to be layered. If you want to celebrate your thick hair and make it even bigger, get it stacked. The hairdresser term for it is “graduated”. This haircut will give you a lot of volume. To add even more volume, curl it!
My advice for someone who is considering this look is to not be deceived by it. It is a classic style that will be easy to maintain and style. It can be customized depending on length and fringe, and both can easily transform this look to match face shape. The color placement is meant to give a natural, sunkissed look that is low maintenance.
Exercise is good for your hair health in many ways, including thickening the hair and encouraging the hair growth. It works to increase circulation to the hair scalp, which mainly takes responsibility for hair growth. So, aim at exercising a couple of times a week to get the best results.
Also u have castor oil grapesead oil all accesable and inexpensive fotlrgot to say u dont have to buy top grade coconut oil its expensive plus lot of enzyms removed through filtering funny thing cheaper oils are better as long as pure if u lucky enough to have access to unrefined x
Four times per week, I applied a stimulating essential oil infusion made of 3 teaspoons of castor oil infused with 6 drops of rosemary essential oil or peppermint oil. To use it, massage the infusion into the scalp. Cover your head with a warm towel and let the steam trigger circulation to the head.
The sides and the back of this haircut are cut really short and tight. The top is left long, layered and disconnected from the rest of the haircut. The very front of the top layer is a short fringe and longer pieces of the hair on top lay over it for a chic and interesting finish.
I am 13, I need to grow out my hair. But I hear many people have acne issues due to biotin. Acne isn’t really a problem for me, but I hate it so muuucccchhhhhh. I am also a bit worried to use coconut oil for the inversion method because of my age my skin is oily already. Any ideas?
Loved your article on hair supplements. It appears you found a solution to your hair issues. Rosemary oil and green tea before going to bed. Do you put the essential oil on your hair, if so how much? I am aware ot biotin for the hair, but what benefit do you receive from the zinc? My hair breaks easily especially when i comb after hair wash. Your hair journey is very appealing. hope to hear from you soon.
Hi Siana, great questions. From what I know and have read, the scalp massage helps increase blood circulation to the hair follicles. The pressure applies warms the skin and open up the blood vessels to increase flow and boost circulation, but the results are diminished if this is done every day. It should be done in short bursts – for example for seven day then break for 3 weeks – if you want to see rapid growth. If you perform scalp massage every day then I don’t think this will damage your hair particularly, but it may encourage hairs to fall out depending how vigorously you massage your scalp. I hope this helps!
You can also make a hydrating hair mask by mixing two tablespoons of wheatgerm oil with half of a ripe mashed avocado. Apply this hair mask on freshly shampooed hair and allow it to sit for at least 20 minutes.
It’s also important to note that if you are experiencing unexplained and severe hair loss, you should schedule a checkup with your doctor, as certain illnesses and health conditions can cause hair loss.
A keen money-saver and fan of all things natural, Anushka enjoys making her own beauty products and is partial to a bit of crafting. Never short of a clever tip or two, she’s always looking for new ways to make her money go even further.
Eat omega-3 foods like salmon, mackerel, tuna, white fish, sardines, egg yolks, walnuts, hemp seeds and natto to reduce inflammation and balance hormones. If you don’t eat enough omega-3 foods, take one to two capsules or one tablespoon of a top-notch fish oil supplement to help reduce inflammation that causes hair disorders. If you already take blood-thinning medications, including aspirin, speak to your health care provider before using fish oil because it may increase bleeding.
For this look, I recommend using a heat protectant, weightless volume, shine serum, and a light hold hairspray. I specifically used these Aveda products: Brilliant Damage Control, Phomollient, Light Elements Smoothing Fluid and Air Control Hairspray.
So I may be the only male in this section but what the heck. My hairstyle is the very bland side parting/quiff which I’ve had for years now and I just want a change! I get regular haircuts which may be every 2-3 weeks but it seems that if I leave my hair longer than this it just stops growing on the sides especially. Any tips would be appreciated as I am hoping to just grow the sides to get an evenly proportioned haircut!!
Hi Laurie, thanks for your questions! Really happy to hear you are going to try the method. There are different ways you can do the inversion method. You can apply the coconut oil to dry, unwashed hair in the evening, leave it on overnight with a cap then wash it out in the morning. If you don’t want to wash your hair every day then you can alternate with the inversion method – one day with oil, one day without and so on. You can even do the inversion method without the oil – or just use the oil once a week. It’s completely up to you. There is no real difference between extra virgin and virgin coconut oil, as far as I am aware – this seems to be just a marketing ploy by companies, but I could be wrong. Thanks for the comments on the article, I’m really pleased you like it. I have written the article purely based on my own personal experience and my hair loss experience and journey. I can’t promise it will work for everyone, but I just wanted to share what did work for me – after years of trial and error! I am impressed with how young people say you look… please feel free to share your secret! I swear by coconut oil and face massage, but those wrinkles around the eyes just keep on comin’!
Biotin and pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) have been used as alternative treatments for hair loss. Biotin benefits your hair by rebuilding hair shingles that have been damaged from over-shampooing, exposure to the sun, blow-drying and ironing. Vitamin B5 supports the adrenal glands, which helps stimulate hair growth.
Hi Meher, hair straightening treatment may help give the illusion that your hair is growing faster as it’s growing down straight rather than in a spiral but it won’t affect your actual hair growth rate. I would suggest giving the inversion method a try and seeing if it works for you.
Hi maria..I just read your question about where to find amla in US. I too am in US and I buy it from any local Indian/Pakistani (ethnic) grocer/store. You can easily find different brands of amla oil, also whole dried amla and amla powder as well. You can include all of this in your hair care regimen. Hope this helps.
You don’t need to use all the products, but I highly recommend the leave-in conditioner and the treatment. The treatment can be used every time you massage your hair during the Inversion Method instead of a natural oil.
Haha it’s a great volume booster! Hhm personally I like to massage dry hair with a little bit of oil and then leave the oil in overnight. I don’t like to massage my hair too much in the shower when it’s wet as I find I loose a lot of hair this way.
In most people, scalp hair growth will halt due to follicle devitalization after reaching a length of generally two or three feet. Exceptions to this rule can be observed in individuals with hair development abnormalities, which may cause an unusual length of hair growth.
What it does: The easy-to-ingest powder supplement contains everything hair loves—keratin (the protein that makes up your strands), biotin, and vitamins and minerals—to promote shine, strength, and healthy growth and help reduce shedding.
Catagen – This is a transitional phase that hair goes into once Anagen has ended. The hair follicle will shrink, the papilla detaches and the hair is no longer attached to it’s ‘life supply’ of nutrients. Hair is no longer growing.
For the second supplement, take a B-complex vitamin or specifically biotin. B-complex has biotin (about 325 micrograms) as well as vitamin B12, both of which have been shown to help thicken hair, skin and nails.
Congratulations Morgan! There are a few tips in the article that will definitely help with your hair growth. I would recommend trying the inversion method every few weeks and making sure you have a Biotin-rich diet – eggs, salmon, almonds, walnuts etc. You can get more information from the article itself. Good luck and let me know how you get on.
I had already been taking zinc and biotin, so we’re on the exact same path. However, I’ve added pumpkin seed oil based on Axe’s article. So far, things are going well (it’s been two months), my barber says he sees an improvement and is atonished at the overall rate of growth of my hair (I have to go weekly for haircuts). I have seen in the studies that it takes about 6 months before Rosemary oil starts showing dramatic effects.
I know this is not really part of the article, but if my hair has lots of split ends that reaches to my scalp, do I have no choice but to chop it off? My hair is at shoulder length and it has been like that for 2 years and it’s the same length. My hair is not that fried but it’s pretty damaged. I did the unthinkable and I chopped off the side hairs underneath to let them grow healthy and fresh again. It kinda looks stupid now but will this help me of getting the short hairs long again? Any tips?

This haircut is shorter on the sides and in the back. The back is shortest at the nape and gradually gets longer towards the crown, giving the crown area beautiful volume. It is layered on top, shorter in the back, and longer in the front.
For this client, we balayaged caramel pieces around her face then gave her lots of layers blending down from the fringe. For styling, we used a smoothing cream to help blow dry and control frizz and added Unite’s Boosta Spray for a little body while blow drying. I then went back in with Unite’s Argan Oil to smooth any flyaways and gave her a loose beachy wave. We finished with a spray wax to tousle and give that lived-in look.
As we discussed earlier, hair begins to grow from the root in the bottom of the follicle which is made up of cells of protein. So to make it simple – we need to eat a protein-rich diet, but for faster hair growth you need need to be making sure you’re eating Biotin-rich foods too in order to facilitate the building blocks of protein.
Hi Saanvi, you don’t need to apply coconut oil every time you do the inversion method. You can massage your scalp without it too. How about only using coconut oil when you are going to wash your hair?
“Your hairstylist has to have really good thinning shears to not cause damage,” says Santiago. Tell your stylist how your hair has reacted to thinning shears or razors in the past. Shears aren’t the devil, but if you’re prone to frizz, they’ll work best for you if used only on the ends of your hair. Your stylist can use a different method to thin out your hair that doesn’t scrape your hair shaft as much.
This style of bob is meant to be styled daily and is not meant for wash and go. It is great for anyone trying to grow out a shorter cut or someone wanting to try out short hairstyles, but isn’t ready to commit to a pixie hairstyle!
Hi Jodie. Glad to hear you’re going to try some of our hair-growth tips! I would start with 1 heaped tablespoon of coconut oil and go from there – you want to make sure your hair is fully saturated. Brand-wise, organic, unrefined is best. Coconut oil is only available in solid form – it’s solid at room temperature. To liquify it, simply massage in your hands before applying to hair. I hope this helps 🙂
If the smell of Johnson’s No More Tangles triggers PTSD flashbacks to your childhood, you know what’s up. Thick hair means knots that are tied with Boy Scout–level strength. Forcing a comb or paddle brush through it is time-consuming and hair-ruining.
Use a “dry shampoo” to treat your hair in between washes. It keeps it looking fresh and has the added benefit of making hair look thicker. Dry shampoo is a powder you can comb through your hair, especially around the roots, between washings.

hi I had blesched my hair twice in a week, it’s burned really crispy, I had to trim it short but my hair was long an now it’s short and very damaged, I don’t want to cut it shorter what can I do? I’m very depressed about my hair

Closed pores are far less vulnerable than open pores so by washing your hair in cold water you’ll help protect your scalp from dirt, grease and oil. If pores are sealed then your hair is more likely to be stronger and shed less. This one step can make a huge difference.
How long the anagen phase lasts depends on how long your hair is and if the cells in your follicle base are continuing to multiply and become hair cells. Hair grows because matrix cells shed some of their structure as they reach the upper follicle. The shed structure combines with keratins to form hair strands that exit your skin’s surface.
Hey….I recently had a haircut and the parlour person made ma hairs too short n it’s looking damn wierd on me….I need to grow them fast…plss help….n do we have to use only coconut oil or once in a week coconut and castor oil along with daily coconut oil massage will work….and doing shampoo daily won’t affect the hair growth??
Hi Katie. Firstly, now you’ve got some length back, it’s imperative that you keep your hair in good condition. This means, regular cuts, and nourishing hair treatments (coconut oil, natural masks etc). I’d also recommend brushing your hair regularly, as this stimulates hair follicles, and, furthering this, the inversion method. Good luck in your quest. 🙂
Taking aloe vera juice internally for starters is one of the things I recommend, so drink about a half a cup, twice a day. Now you can buy aloe vera juice in small proportions, but I found, bang for your buck, getting a whole gallon of aloe vera juice is the better way to go. Beyond thickening your hair, it’ll also give you healthier skin and nails.
Hi there, if your hair is greasy then I wouldn’t recommend using the oil every day – maybe just once a week and you only need the smallest amount. You can do the inversion method without oil – just gently massage your scalp every day for the 7 days. In terms of washing your hair, try to use a small amount of product and use luke warm water to rinse your hair. I hope this helps.
Hi Smita, Great to hear you are going to try the inversion method, let me know how it goes and don’t forget to measure it before and after. I don’t have any pics but I am definitely going to take some the next time I do the inversion method and add them to this post. I also get a lot of hair loss, try massaging very lightly and reduce the amount of times you wash your hair every week. Perhaps try washing your hair every 2 days?
Hi Erin, so to hear you’ve had a bit of a hair nightmare. I once cut my hair into a pixie cute and it took a long time to grow it back to the style I originally had. I suggest you follow the advice in this article to help grow your hair quicker. The inversion method worked for me so let me know how you get on with that. You just need to massage your hair daily for 7 days alternating with coconut oil. Good luck!
Hi Kathleen I’m not too sure to be honest, if you’re experiencing some hair loss through medication then you would not want to increase it by vigorously massaging your head. I would try the rest of the tips and perhaps a more gentler scalp massage?
Hi Jennie, really sorry to hear about your experience. It can be terribly upsetting, but I would use a moisturising hair mask every week to get it back to good health. Make sure you eat a good healthy diet (you can find details in the article) and use just lukewarm water to wash your hair. I wouldn’t recommend hair massage if your hair is falling out at the moment, when it has had time to recover you can try a gentle scalp massage in the shower when you’re shampooing – that would be a good start. I hope this helps, but if you’re at all worried please visit your nearest hair salon to seek professional advice.
I’m stunned by some of the folks here expecting to see a miracle performed or to suddenly in a day or two expect to have long, healthy hair when you didn’t have it yesterday. You guys have unrealistic expectations from the advice and tips given in this article. This lady is simply offering some tips & advice. Not guaranteed to help everyone as everyone is different. Be a little more realistic about this folks. Thanks for the useful tips & information and I can’t help but laugh at some of these comments!!
I have recently had my hair bleached for the first time. I was not planning to do it, but it turned out that my hairdresser didn’t understand me. Half of my hair was bleached ( at the bottom), and some parts of my hair was bleached at the roots. Yesterday I noticed that the bleached parts were starting to break off, and I am very worried that eventually all of the hair that was bleached at the top will break off before new hair grows. If that would happen it would be terrible, since my hair is already thin and will look completely see-through. Will all the bleached hair break off?
Hey, I’m not very old but my hair has really been suffering….I had been skipping conditioner,using a lot of shampoo, showering in steaming hot water, and not getting my hair cut for maybe even over a year! I have been following these tips for about a month. My favorite meathod is using the coconut oil. My parents buy it for the dogs food, (to keeps their coat healthy, your welcome mom?), so I use it as well. Thank you soooo much for the tips. My hair has grown ALOT!
Massaging your scalp regularly with cold-pressed castor oil is one of the easiest ways to get thicker hair naturally. Due to its high viscosity, it coats the hair thoroughly and protects against hair fall. Plus, being high in vitamin E and fatty acids, it promote hair growth.
This is a great article, thank you for the additional tips. I already use a great sulfur oil from consciousessence.com that gives me about an inch growth a month so I’ll try the inversion to see if I can get even more growth 🙂 I am really excited and can’t wait to try.
Hello Ma’m, I’ve got a shaggy haircut and now my hair about 6″ and I want my upto 12″ in 2 months, and that’s what wanted to ask that, is it possible to have such a long growth in such a short time, if I’ll try the above methods?

Hi, My i had my hair till waist length. I got them cut for to shoulder lenghth due to some reason. Now I’m so sad and I feel like killing my self after this. Can i get my hair till waist length in just one month. Right now they are shoulder length. Please help me out. We have to do this for 7 days and give a break. For how long do we have to give a breaj
Make a mixture of one mashed avocado, one mashed banana and one tablespoon of olive oil. Massage it on your scalp and leave the mixture on your hair for about 30 minutes so that the nutrients are absorbed by the scalp. Finally, rinse it out and shampoo your hair.
So can you almost garuntee that the methods will make my hair grow. Fast. I would like my hair to grow longer and i haven’t really found anything. But the oil massage seems interesting. And about how long do you think my hair would grow using your methods, and about how long will it take?
There is no need to rinse out the aloe vera (as long as it is pure aloe vera gel). I always massage it into my scalp (and hair) after washing my hair (two times a week). It works great as a leave-in-treatment for scalp and hair – and as a healthy volume-and-moisturizing hair gel!
This is the single most informative piece on hair loss I’ve ever found, and I’ve searched for lots! Dr. Axe, you give me hope. I had luxurious hair as a child, but, that all ended at puberty. Still, I didn’t have extremely thin hair, just thinner. The thinning progressed steadily, though, until I became pregnant. Then, suddenly, I had my childhood hair back! Until, that is, I gave birth, when all the new growth disappeared with a vengeance. I’m 67 now, and have a great deal of difficulty covering the thin entire crown of my head. This, in spite of my holistic doctor’s efforts with bio identical hormones, over the last three years! I also take supplements, but, too sporadically. That will change! To add insult to injury, my husband also started the bio identical hormones, just two months ago, and although he was never bothered by his baldness, has much new growth! Thank you for this enlightening information, it is my best hope.
Can avocado oil strengthen my hair? Oils play an important role in the health of a person’s hair. Avocado oil may have specific benefits due to its vitamin and mineral composition. When the hair’s natural oil balance is uneven, or the environment has damaged the hair, using oils on the scalp or hair may moisturize it and prevent further damage. Read now
I have not tried those? Where can you get them from? No I wasn’t sponsored by Lee Stafford, it’s a genuine recommendation. It was recommended to me by a friend who swore by it for hair growth and I was pleasantly surprised to find it worked!
Hi.. I am suffering from eccessive hair fall. I am taking keraglo eva as suggested by doctor from last one month but its not working. I am getting married in 2 months. Please suggest what should i do to stop hair fall and grow and thicken my hair .
Hello, I have been struggling with my hair for about 4 months now. Back in May I had decided to go back to my natural hair color from being platinum blonde. My natural is an ashy dark dirty blonde. Unfortunately doing it at home was my first mistake, and I ended up with red hair. I went to my old high school which has a salon with students working in it, which was my second mistake. They got my hair to a more manageable color but cut off around 3-4 inches when I only wanted 1 inch off. I was devastated.. and my hair was very very dry and thin and lifeless everywhere except about 5 inches on the top of my head. Since then I have added a lot more blonde highlights to get closer to my natural color as it wasn’t going a weird orange red color from the previous red dye. It has gotten a lot more moisturized and feels much less dry since then, but regardless is still very stringy and lifeless looking and very hard to style and maintain volume. The natural state of my hair has never been very volumous , but when I had bleached it the texture changed and it felt a lot thicker. I desperately want that hair back but cannot bleach my hair in this state.. so the only thing I can really do is grow it all out again till I have my natural 100% hair back to bleach it again , with caution to have minimal damage. I have been taking hairbrush vitamins, a b-complex vitamin, as well as trying to drink more water and eat more of the right foods. I’ve also recently started doing a castor oil and coconut oil leave in treatment, which has made it feel stronger. Do you have any advice for me? I am just so desperate to feel some weight to my hair.. it feels like air when I move my head back and forth and doesn’t even feel like it’s there. I also have parts on the top of my head on the right side that got burned off from bleaching back in January this year, they have grown about 6 inches out now but look very odd and stick out unless I straighten them with light heat. I don’t straighten any other parts of my hair anymore as I used to every day and that definitely contributed to the damage I face now. I used to have such beautiful long healthy hair and my confidence has mostly diminished because of all this. I am just desperate to feel like myself again. Thank you for taking the time to read 🙂
Hi Julia, sorry to hear that. For the time being I would try not to concentrate on hair growth and more about treating your hair well and getting it back to good health. I would eat plenty of protein-rich foods, treat your hair to a weekly hair mask on the ends and gentle scalp massage. Try not to use any heated tools on your hair, and wash it using lukewarm water – avoid burning hot water – and your hair should be feeling better soon.

Can help u so use olive oil or any type of oil soak the oil in your hair for at least 20-30 min this will prevent no itchy scalp or thin hair wash the oil out or leave it in overnight them wash with a mild shampoo and will be as light as a feather thanks hope this comment/suggestion worked bye xxxxx ??????
Hi my name’s Jamee, I’m a 17 year old girl who just graduated from high school. When growing up I was never told of the bad damaging affects of dying my hair so I did it for many years and now for the past 3 years my hair has only grown 2 inches and either breaks off or falls out. My hair has become very very thin and I now wear hair extensions everyday because of the insecurity I feel. I have very oily hair and don’t know what dry shampoo products are good for someone like me so I usually wash my hair everyday. I get my hair cut as regularly as it should but its still no use. I wash my hair in cold water and have used different techniques while washing, none have helped. I’m scared I’ll have to wear a wig when I’m older, and having to buy extensions and take care of them has become such a hassle. I feel like because I dyed my hair so much, it did something to my roots and I don’t know what to do. However, I do not have a very good eating diet and would like tips on that. I plan on using a lot of these natural remedies, if anyone has any input to helping me that would be extremely appreciated. 🙂
As mentioned, i’ve tried all kinds of natural and prescription solutions with minimal results. In addition I suffer from Hashimotos disease which may or may not be playing a part in my hair loss. I currently take levothyroxine daily to cope with this. I’ve always had a suspicion that since taking this drug for the past few years, i’ve lost more hair. It may just be a coincidence in timing.
I have tried Rosemary oil and has done wonders. I also mix apple cider vinegar with aloevera and add it to my hair while I shampoo. After shampooing, I towel dry and add morocoon oil just few drops….this makes the hair smooth and removes frizz.
Hi there, sorry to hear that. I’m afraid I don’t know too much about this condition, but scalp massage will certainly helps stimulate the follicles.Please give it a go and see how you get on, if in any doubt though please see a doctor for professional help.
Hi Meredith. Sorry to hear you were having trouble with your hair. We often forget just how fragile it can be – it’s really important to look after it! I’m so glad to hear our tips have been helping you out. Here’s to many more years of a happy head of hair!
I just really need hope that it will eventually get it’s elasticity back and feel, look, and become thicker. Meant to add this to my main comment but accidentally deleted this tab on my browser and lost it.
Women who are pregnant may feel that their hair is actually growing faster. And women who have just had a baby may feel like they are losing their hair at a faster rate than normal. This is because during pregnancy, the hormone estrogen actually causes a woman to have a higher ratio of hair follicles in the growing phase. After the baby is born, hair follicles return to the “resting” phase, making it appear as if they are shedding hair.
If the smell of Johnson’s No More Tangles triggers PTSD flashbacks to your childhood, you know what’s up. Thick hair means knots that are tied with Boy Scout–level strength. Forcing a comb or paddle brush through it is time-consuming and hair-ruining.
Hi there, I’m so sorry to hear you’re feeling this way. Don’t worry, it will grow back! If you do the inversion method just once a month, but you can continue with the rest of the tips. Protein is excellent for healthy hair.
hi Jenna, where did you buy fenugreek seeds in Spain? I’m living in Valencia Spain, I’m looking for this for a long time and I can’t find, I don’t know where to buy, could you please tell me where to buy…thanks
Disclaimer: What has worked for me may not work for you, but I found all these elements together helped my hair grow over an inch in a week and I also found a lot of new hairs on the crown and around my hairline.
If you’re using heat tools every day whether that be hot irons or the hair-dryer, try to cut down on using them while you are doing the Inversion Method. Heat can weaken your hair so even just alternating or going an extra day without heat can dramatically improve the condition of your hair.
The anagen phase is known as the growth phase. This is the phase where the hair physically grows approximately 1 cm per month.[1] It begins in the papilla and can last from two to six years.[2][3] The span at which the hair remains in this stage of growth is determined by genetics. The longer the hair stays in the anagen phase, the longer it will grow. During this phase, the cells in the papilla divide to produce new hair fibers[contradictory], and the follicle buries itself into the dermal layer of the skin to nourish the strand. About 85% – 90% of the hairs on one’s head are in the anagen phase at any given time
Hey, I would try out the henna method. Question is how often I am suppose to do this treatment? I have tried so many methods and nothing worked out. I would appreciate if my doubts are cleared. Thanks a million!
Hi Dr Moore. Thanks a lot for getting in touch. Your hair sounds absolutely amazing – it’s what many of us dream of having! We’d be very interested in seeing the results once you’ve finished – please do send them in! Thanks a lot 🙂
Last year I chopped 10 inches off my hair and immediately panicked. What had I done? I’m sure you’ve had a similar, post-haircut moment of regret. I wanted a change, but I didn’t realize just how drastic it would be. As I reeled to figure out how to remedy this now irreversible situation, I recalled reading somewhere that hair grows an average of 6 inches a year…so regrowing those 10 inches could take me almost two full years! (And that’s not factoring in trims and breakage). I felt stuck without my hair and now had a new mission: to reclaim it.
“Your hairstylist has to have really good thinning shears to not cause damage,” says Santiago. Tell your stylist how your hair has reacted to thinning shears or razors in the past. Shears aren’t the devil, but if you’re prone to frizz, they’ll work best for you if used only on the ends of your hair. Your stylist can use a different method to thin out your hair that doesn’t scrape your hair shaft as much.
Hi Laurie, thanks for your questions! Really happy to hear you are going to try the method. There are different ways you can do the inversion method. You can apply the coconut oil to dry, unwashed hair in the evening, leave it on overnight with a cap then wash it out in the morning. If you don’t want to wash your hair every day then you can alternate with the inversion method – one day with oil, one day without and so on. You can even do the inversion method without the oil – or just use the oil once a week. It’s completely up to you. There is no real difference between extra virgin and virgin coconut oil, as far as I am aware – this seems to be just a marketing ploy by companies, but I could be wrong. Thanks for the comments on the article, I’m really pleased you like it. I have written the article purely based on my own personal experience and my hair loss experience and journey. I can’t promise it will work for everyone, but I just wanted to share what did work for me – after years of trial and error! I am impressed with how young people say you look… please feel free to share your secret! I swear by coconut oil and face massage, but those wrinkles around the eyes just keep on comin’!
Hi. Thank you so much for the advice but I was wondering. Did you only use it on the scalp at the roots or do you do all of your hair? How much oil did you use? How much almond oil do you mix with the castor oil? Sorry to bombard you with questions I hope you don’t mind.
This is a high maintenance color that requires more commitment on the guest’s end. They must come into the salon for a retouch every four to five weeks. There is a point where the service becomes a project again instead of routine maintenance.

How do I tell if I am losing hair. My hair used to be really curly and beautiful and really thick . Now just starting a few months ago i have noticed a huge difference in my hair. It is not as curly it is more wavy and I find it really thin. Like my hair is really long i just feel like i do not have that much of it . As in many strands of it. Although people say i have a on of hair. I do not want to end up having to get a wig. What should I do? How can I make my hair thicker? Please help me and answer ASAP I am getting really concerned. It is making me feel very insecure about myself .
Stacked bobs create volume and will make thick hair appear even thicker. Sometimes it can even make really thick hair look like a flying saucer! Instead of getting a stacked bob, get a layered bob. Layering your hair will remove volume while still giving you style and movement.
Fewer than 45 percent of women go through life with a full head of hair while a majority of men go through some type of hair loss in their lifetimes. The hair care industry knows that consumers have a great desire to look youthful now more than ever so it constantly delivers new products that promise to promote hair growth. Before you spend your money on yet another product that may leave you disappointed, try using these vitamins for hair growth (or hair vitamins as I sometimes call them) first.
This is a great article, thank you for the additional tips. I already use a great sulfur oil from consciousessence.com that gives me about an inch growth a month so I’ll try the inversion to see if I can get even more growth 🙂 I am really excited and can’t wait to try.
I have these really short hairs along my parting at the top of my head That look very odd. They don’t fit in with the rest of my hair(which is shoulder length) and really want to grow them. I don’t know what to do with them while they are growing and they won’t stay in a place. If I just do the inversion method with the coconut oil how long to you with it with take to grow and also is it okay to use hairspray ?
Hi Ruby, I’m afraid I can’t guarantee the rapid hair growth as everyone is different but from my personal experience I managed to grow my hair 1 inch in a week when I did all the above tips. Please give it a go and be sure to measure a section of your hair before and after. Good luck!
I feel like I have unhealthy hair since I haven’t really looked after it well. I’ve tried these methods but due the way it is it doesn’t work. I’m wondering if I should cut it into some sort of of bob even though my hair only reaches my shoulders or maybe a centimetre or two above it. Will cutting my hair make it grow longer and healthier or is shaving a better option?
Alopecia is a hair loss disease that can occur in anyone at any stage of life. Specifically Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease that causes hair to spontaneously fall out. It is mainly characterized by bald patches on the scalp or other parts of the body, and can ultimately cause baldness across the entire body. This disease interferes with the hair growth cycle by causing a follicle to prematurely leave the anagen, or active growth, phase and enter the resting, or telogen phase. The hair growth in the affected follicles is lessened or stopped completely.
“In the late 1980s, the standard of care was to take large grafts, plugs of 12 to 20 hairs, and implant them,” he says. “It would give either a very good or acceptable result. But some men, as they got older and lost some more hair, they got that doll’s-hair or corn-row phenomenon: Little poles of hair jutting out.”

Correct! While a hair relaxer will straighten curly hair, it will not do anything for thinning hair. In fact, a relaxer could further damage your hair, especially if the product contains lye! Read on for another quiz question.
Hi Deepti, congratulations on your wedding! I’m sorry to hear about your hair loss, in this case I think it’s best to follow the doctor’s prescribed treatment. You might like to try gentle scalp massage but be careful not to encourage more hair loss. Coconut oil is fantastic for strengthening too. How about eating lots of protein rich foods?
Hii Anushka. From my school days I have short hair only. Now my age 22. I consulted doctor, I spent more money and I disappointed with my hair growth. Feeling bad when my friends kidding me using my hair so plz help me. Is this tips makes me feel good???

To put it plainly, thick refers to the actual width of a single strand of hair, while density is how closely packed the hair follicles are on your scalp. Hair can have high density, which is when there’s a lot of strands growing near each other, or have low density, which is when the follicles are more spaced out on the scalp. Usually, straight strands tend to be denser than tight curls or afro hair.

Actually I just rebond(straight ) my hair and its look really ugly for my face. I seriously dont know how to get rid off it. My plan is hoping my original hair grow faster so that I can just cut the straight hair. Anyway my original hair is curl.Any advise please??? Help needed
For dry styling, I recommend using a dry texture spray like Bumble and bumble’s Dryspun or Design Me’s Puff.ME Light. This will give life and movement to the hair without it feeling too heavy. You can complete the look with a soft hold hairspray like Bumble and bumble’s Spray De Mode.

Hi Johanna, thanks for your question. Do you mean your middle parting is growing slowly? Have you found the parting is getting bigger? It sounds like you may have some slow hair growth, give the tips in the article a go. I wouldn’t suggest cutting your hair again unless you prefer it to be shorter.

And honestly, I’m no expert about what women want in a man, but I’m pretty sure that a good 90% of them couldn’t care less how much hair you have, as long as you’re not an entitled idiot and respect them as people: kind of like how most interpersonal relationships work really, just with less hair. Look at Jason Statham – he’s never had any problems attracting women, and he’s one of the baldest guys around.
Hello Ma’m, I’ve got a shaggy haircut and now my hair about 6″ and I want my upto 12″ in 2 months, and that’s what wanted to ask that, is it possible to have such a long growth in such a short time, if I’ll try the above methods?
Hi Emma. Unfortunately, these are baby hairs. I too have bad ones at the front and despite everything I’ve tried, they won’t seem to grow or go! My best suggestion is using hairspray/other products to keep them neatly in place. I’ve found using a volumizing mousse before blow-drying off my forehead seems to work best.

Hi there Twinkle, Sorry to hear you’re frustrated with your hair. I know how it feels when all you want is it to grow yet it’s going nowhere! Have you tried the Inversion Method yet? It takes a bit of effort, but it worked wonders for me and I’m sure it could for you too. I hope this helps. 🙂
Science has discovered a little bit about how hair growth is controlled at the cellular level in the body, but not enough to know how we can directly speed up hair growth. Read on to learn about the science behind hair growth and how to use that knowledge for healthier hair.
As it turns out, just because your ponytail is extra full, it doesn’t automatically mean your hair is thick. In reality, it might actually be dense. “One of the biggest myths about hair thickness that people make, especially if they have any ounce of curl, is that their hair is thick, unruly, and unmanageable,” says François. “But, what you’ll find is that the majority of people that actually have curly hair, but it’s not thick or dense. So when they straighten their hair, you actually see it is quite fine.”

Thankyou for sharing these helpful tips. I agree with the biotin thing, it works wonders for my hair. I also use curry powder and curd along with the onion juice to make my hair thick, long and bouncy. 🙂 Do check out my hair story as well.
“Others are taking hair follicles out of human scalp and growing them with dermal papilla cells,” Cotsarelis says. “If they grow in culture, you might be able to recombine them with skin cells and form new follicles. This would let you expand the number of follicles you get for a hair transplant. This may not be that far off — five to 10 years, maybe. There’s very good evidence you will be able to do that.”
I always had a good head of hair until my doctor put me on Lipitor to lower cholestrol. My hair got very thin and I didn’t link the problem right away to Lipitor. I started to wonder what new thing was I doing? I decided to call my pharmacist to ask about some side effects. Sure enough, one of the side effects was baldness in spots (alopicia arearta). I stopped the Lipitor and my hair stopped falling out. My hair never really came back to what it was though. However, my hair absolutely stopped thinning after throwing away the Liitor. I have now since dicovered that Liitor has been taken off the market. Within 3 years after this problem, my doctor put me on Avapro for high B pressure. My hair started to thin once again. It was falling out! I don’t know if the Avapro was the culperate, but I certainly got off that perscribed drug. I’m doing natural remedies to lower my blood pressure with a healthy natural diet. I am going to try the amla powder with the coconut oil and hope for the best. I’ll let you guys know if it works.
I’m trying to grow my hair long as I recently cut my hair and realised that even after one month it didn’t grow. I’m definitely going to try this method out and I’ll come back and tell you if it’s working!

Alopecia Areata — Alopecia areata is considered an autoimmune disease in which the immune system mistakenly attacks the hair follicles. The effected hair follicles become small and drastically slow down hair production. Researchers believe that some type of trigger, such as a virus or vitamin deficiency, may bring on the attack. (16)
Hair loss won’t usually feel like much when it’s happening. But sometimes it can be a warning sign of a larger health issue, especially if there’s scarring on the scalp. Women with hair loss who notice other changes in their bodies, like a drop in their voice or more acne, might want to get checked out by a doctor.
Hi Nathalie, sorry to hear this! I think all the tips in the article should help. Especially the diet tips and use of coconut oil when massaging your hair and scalp. Please try it out, if it doesn’t help it might be worth seeking professional advice.
Sure, snapping a hair tie (or two) every time you try to pull your hair up into a ponytail will understandably make your friends, family, co-workers, and the stranger standing next to you in the public bathroom mirror envious that you have thick, long strands. But, is your hair actually thick or do you just have a lot of it, and how important is it to know the difference?
Onions, normally seen as a humble kitchen staple, may have uses other than simply adding flavor to our food. It might sound surprising to some, but onion juice is also a home remedy for hair loss. Learn more.
Mix one tablespoon of Indian gooseberry or amla powder in two tablespoons of coconut oil and heat until boiling. Strain the oil and massage it onto your scalp before going to bed. The next morning, shampoo your hair as usual. Do this on a weekly basis.
Hi there, it’s really up to you. I tried all these at the same time and it worked for me, but I have done the inversion method without the other tips at it also worked. I just felt the oils and foods really helped strengthen my hair at the same time.
Biotin and pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) have been used as alternative treatments for hair loss. Biotin benefits your hair by rebuilding hair shingles that have been damaged from over-shampooing, exposure to the sun, blow-drying and ironing. Vitamin B5 supports the adrenal glands, which helps stimulate hair growth.
Aloe vera has also been reported to have a protective effect against radiation damage to the skin, which can lead to hair loss. Following the administration of aloe vera gel, an antioxidant protein called metallothionein is generated in the skin, which scavenges free radicals and prevents UV-induced suppression. (14)
I was enjoying reading your supplied information – until you mentioned bathing and the Catholic Church – I googled the same topic and discovered that you were definitely wrong in your assertions that the catholic Church banned bathing in the Middle Ages. The Church did no such thing. As an educator and a History enthusiast it annoys me no end when writers, commentators etc make sweeping statements whether it be about a particular church, faith belief, society, peoples, etc that they obviously know nothing about. For me the lack of research points also to an ignorance, a laziness, on the side of the writer who just wants to be popular, like a child, or wants to sound as if they actually know something. Stick to what you know please. You only make a fool of your self otherwise!
Hair is considered to be a major component of an individual’s general appearance, and the psychological impact of hair loss results in detrimental changes in self-esteem and self-worth. It also affects a large number of people, as 50 percent of men are affected by genetic hair loss by the age of 50. In women, the major cause of hair loss before the age of 50 is nutritional, with 30 percent affected. The main cause of hair loss for women appears to be depleted iron stores, but corrections of these imbalances can stop the excessive hair loss within a few months. (15)
Please help. My hair has always been my pride and joy. I figured since it is pretty damn healthy, it could deal with some bleach damage. And I figured the master stylist who did all the color-corrections would know how much would be too much. I was wrong, and now I want to burst into tears every time I look at my hair or touch it. I just don’t know what to do. my hair has also NEVER been shorter than this and it breaks and falls out. What should i do to regrow hair?
Hey! Should I do all the tips so these together are going to work on my hair or if I do the Method and for example I take Vitamin H too it’s gonna be a bit longer/stronger? Sorry for bad English tho and thanks for the tips!
Hi Mrunmayee. Your hair’s rate of growth depends on many different factors, so giving an accurate estimate would be hard. The hair grows an average of 1/2 inch per month, so if you measure from your shoulders to your waist, you should get a rough idea of how long this will take. Speed the process up by trying some of our hair growth tips! 🙂
To put it plainly, thick refers to the actual width of a single strand of hair, while density is how closely packed the hair follicles are on your scalp. Hair can have high density, which is when there’s a lot of strands growing near each other, or have low density, which is when the follicles are more spaced out on the scalp. Usually, straight strands tend to be denser than tight curls or afro hair.
I really appreciate the information on your website regarding hair loss. I have tried the various supplements in your videos and articles for hair loss but I haven’t had much successes at stopping my continued thinning. I am a 45 yo man and while not completely bald yet, I am losing my hair in the typical male pattern of hereditary hair loss. My older brother by about 5 years has lost all his hair on top and I believe I will follow in this condition.
Olive oil is full of what your hair and skin need to stay healthy and vibrant. Keeping a bottle of olive oil and in the bathroom is highly recommended. People have been using olive oil for years to promote thicker hair and healthy skin. Olive oil contains the omega-3 fatty-acids that your hair needs to become thicker.
I have also learned that cats like to step on laptops at a bad time, thus causing distractions. It would be better written as “I have learned to never take anyone who can’t spell seriously”. Shame on me.
Some blogs may recommend natural products and the ‘no-poo’ method, which involves cutting out all haircare and relying on baking soda to clean your hair. I am a big fan of Coconut Oil and Olive Oil as both beauty and haircare products, but I found the Lee Stafford range to really work. Coupled with the other elements, I noticed hair growth, new hair growth and also my hair was stronger and shinier than ever.
The phases run simultaneously so some hairs on your head will be in the Anagen phase and others in Telogen.  For each hair strand, the Anagen phase should start again once the Telogen phase is complete, but some people may experience longer Telogen phases meaning hair is shedding but no new hair is growing.
Getting regular trims gives you the appearance of having thicker hair. In the long run, regularly trimming the hair also helps your hair grow healthy from root to tip. This is also among the most amazing tips on how to grow thick hair naturally at home in one month that I would like to share in the entire article today and people should not skip at all costs!
If the smell of Johnson’s No More Tangles triggers PTSD flashbacks to your childhood, you know what’s up. Thick hair means knots that are tied with Boy Scout–level strength. Forcing a comb or paddle brush through it is time-consuming and hair-ruining.
Listen…make a paste one night before applying. The paste consists of Henna powder, reetha powder, Amla powder and shikakai powder. Now boil methi seeds and tea leaves in water. Now mix all the above powders together with the help of this water and yogurt. Keep it overnight. Right before applying, take one or two eggs according to the length of your hair and beat it properly. Now apply the mask. Keep it for 3-4 hours. Wash it with cold water. Only with cold water. No shampoo, nothing. Now oil your hair properly after your hair dries. Use shampoo the next day. Try once a week. You will see the difference in two months.
The acid in oranges helps break apart residue left from hair products. These residues may interfere with hair growth. Unlike some of the other treatments, orange puree has a pleasant scent that makes the treatment more enjoyable.
Even though modern folklore, and even some limited scientific studies, have suggested that the mother’s side of the family is largely responsible for a genetic predisposition toward baldness, the truth is balding is not all our mothers’ fault. In fact, doctors now say baldness patterns are inherited from a combination of many genes on both sides of the family. There are some environmental factors that come into play, too.
Just thinking about the money I’ve saved on going to the barbers alone makes me weep with a weird, nonsensical pride that I can’t grow my hair any longer than Krusty The Clown-style sidebushes. Every time I need a haircut I just get a mirror and my clippers, and go at it – which is quick, painless and involves zero awkward chat with a hairdresser.

Hi I have followed the inversion method and massaged coconut oil into m hair 2 times a week… My hair grew 2.5 inches within 2 months of continuous routine. Thank you soooo much. These tips realy are true!!!!!

Disclaimer: What has worked for me may not work for you, but I found all these elements together helped my hair grow over an inch in a week and I also found a lot of new hairs on the crown and around my hairline.
Use a “dry shampoo” to treat your hair in between washes. It keeps it looking fresh and has the added benefit of making hair look thicker. Dry shampoo is a powder you can comb through your hair, especially around the roots, between washings.
I am a natural blonde, when in high school, I used to put a dab of castor oil on each eye, of course, lightly rubbing it into the lashes, It took around 2 months and my lashes grew darker, longer so that when I applied mascara, it actually looked like I had fake lashes. My girlfriends , let alone me, could hardly believe it, but sure worked for me.
While you’re doing it make sure you are tipping your head over slightly so it’s hanging over. Sitting on a chair and bending your head over works very well. By doing this, you’re encouraging the blood to flow to your head and are stimulating your hair follicles to encourage the Anagen stage.
Hi my name’s Jamee, I’m a 17 year old girl who just graduated from high school. When growing up I was never told of the bad damaging affects of dying my hair so I did it for many years and now for the past 3 years my hair has only grown 2 inches and either breaks off or falls out. My hair has become very very thin and I now wear hair extensions everyday because of the insecurity I feel. I have very oily hair and don’t know what dry shampoo products are good for someone like me so I usually wash my hair everyday. I get my hair cut as regularly as it should but its still no use. I wash my hair in cold water and have used different techniques while washing, none have helped. I’m scared I’ll have to wear a wig when I’m older, and having to buy extensions and take care of them has become such a hassle. I feel like because I dyed my hair so much, it did something to my roots and I don’t know what to do. However, I do not have a very good eating diet and would like tips on that. I plan on using a lot of these natural remedies, if anyone has any input to helping me that would be extremely appreciated. 🙂
Massage your hair and scalp with warm olive oil and leave it on for at least 30 to 45 minutes. Rinse it out thoroughly and wash your hair using a mild shampoo. You can also leave the oil on your hair overnight and then shampoo your hair the next morning.
This is a great look for someone with thicker hair with a little bit of wave to it. It works for most face shapes. My guest has an oval face shape and came in with a long, almost one length cut. After feeling like her hair had no life and all she was doing was throwing it up in a bun, I decided to add all of the layers to allow for a more versatile look.
Hi so I just recently donated 10 inches off of my hair to an organization that makes wigs for cancer patients, and my hair is now not even touching my shoulders:( I am also in a wedding the first week of February, and i need my hair to grow FAST for the wedding. But I am afraid these tips are not going to work, or be a waste of time(of which i don’t have a lot of). My hair also sucks to get oil out of so what treatment do you recommend?
While many companies promote vitamins or supplements for hair growth, they don’t always directly affect hair length. But the body does require a lot of energy to make your hair grow. Missing out on balanced meals and nutrients can affect hair growth.
Hi, I cut my hair REALLY short almost two years ago and I’m desperate for it to grow back. My goal is to have hair that passes my hips. Right now it’s at my mid/lower back and really is in that awkward stage of short/long. How do I make it grow to my hips by summer?
About the inversion method, why can you only do it for a week? I am looking to grow my hair out and am wondering if you can do it for several weeks for more length. Also, does this method generally seem to work with growing brand new hairs, or just current hairs?
Well I tried the biotin thing to grow my hair which hasn’t worked and have bought some coconut oil but I’m only using it once a week also have started eating nuts as well. Have ordered some Lee Stafford hair growth stuff too I live in hope. I have had my hair cut short both sides because I had it in a style long one side short the other and I wanted it same both sides regret it massively now because I hate it so short.
If you want an asymmetric look for your bob but aren’t ready to commit, wear one side behind your ear. It will give the illusion of an asymmetric haircut. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll be ready to visit your hairstylist and actually get the haircut.
I always had a good head of hair until my doctor put me on Lipitor to lower cholestrol. My hair got very thin and I didn’t link the problem right away to Lipitor. I started to wonder what new thing was I doing? I decided to call my pharmacist to ask about some side effects. Sure enough, one of the side effects was baldness in spots (alopicia arearta). I stopped the Lipitor and my hair stopped falling out. My hair never really came back to what it was though. However, my hair absolutely stopped thinning after throwing away the Liitor. I have now since dicovered that Liitor has been taken off the market. Within 3 years after this problem, my doctor put me on Avapro for high B pressure. My hair started to thin once again. It was falling out! I don’t know if the Avapro was the culperate, but I certainly got off that perscribed drug. I’m doing natural remedies to lower my blood pressure with a healthy natural diet. I am going to try the amla powder with the coconut oil and hope for the best. I’ll let you guys know if it works.
This form of hair loss can also be associated with other medical conditions like coronary heart disease and prostate problems for men, as well as hormonal imbalances in women, according to the National Institutes of Health.

In news that will be mostly of no use to anyone but ennui-ridden middle-aged men now contemplating their lost youth in the wake of their own fading good looks, it looks like a potential cure for baldness has been found. Scientists from the University of Manchester used a drug originally intended to treat osteoporosis on samples containing scalp hair follicles from more than 40 male hair-transplant patients, and found that the drug had a impressive effect on hair follicles, reviving their ability to grow.
The mask we are going to write about will give you amazing results in 2 months. Anyway, you need to be consistent and patient when using it if you want to achieve the best results. So, don’t hesitate to give it a try.
This is a great article, thank you for the additional tips. I already use a great sulfur oil from consciousessence.com that gives me about an inch growth a month so I’ll try the inversion to see if I can get even more growth 🙂 I am really excited and can’t wait to try.
As we discussed earlier, hair begins to grow from the root in the bottom of the follicle which is made up of cells of protein. So to make it simple – we need to eat a protein-rich diet, but for faster hair growth you need need to be making sure you’re eating Biotin-rich foods too in order to facilitate the building blocks of protein.
Hey! It’s such a beautiful article, I have confidence in this. Well, reading it makes me pretty sure that I’m going to have long hairs! Thanks a ton! Hoping to write soon. I’ll surely brief you about my growth within a short span! Regards! You’re doing a great job! 🙂
Hi Heidi, that’s exactly it. The massage provides increased blood flow to the hair follicle which boosts growth, if you did it constantly then it wouldn’t be as effective. Massage is brilliant for hair health anyway so it won’t hurt to massage your hair daily but if you’re after rapid growth then you need a break in between.

why you have a wish for light eye colour? dark colour eyes are the sign of beauty, for long eye lashes use castorile oil daily at night. For beautiful and soft skin use a mixture of rose water’ lemon juice’ glasorine in the night. u can use this mixture in all seasons.for long and thick hair use almond oil’ castor oil’ together. i hope it will help you alot.
Similarly out of fashion are flap-type procedures, where a flap of hair from a hair-bearing area is partially removed, swung around, and attached to a frontal area. But this can lead to scarring or death or a portion of the scalp.
If you want to grow strong hair, focus specifically on eating sufficient amounts of clean proteins. It can be quite hard to do this without eating animal proteins, but if you are opting for a vegetarian diet, include plenty of eggs and spirulina. Secondly, eat adequate amounts of vegetables and fermented foods to keep inflammation at bay. Feeding the microbiome with raw and cooked vegetables (especially celery and asparagus) is a plus.
Hi Yvette, good luck with the tips in this article. I hope they work out for you! It’s hard to recommend a shampoo or conditioner as everyone is different and has different concerns and hair types. Generally a good quality haircare product will suffice when following these types, just make sure you use the right amount and give your hair a cold blast of water after washing.
After washing at night no less than 30 minutes before bedtime, let your hair air-dry overnight. “In the morning, you can achieve a blowout-like effect using a half-barrel curling iron,” says Santiago. “Split your hair into 12 to 14 sections. When you quickly swoop the iron through them to the ends, it’ll look like a salon blowout done with a big round brush but takes way less time.” You’re not going to have the same volume as you would with a real blowout, but you will look polished. And not like you just got caught in a rainstorm.
Hi Anushka, thanks for this article. I’ve had a really good read through and I’m currently waiting for my jelly to set in the fridge (any excuse to eat my favourite dessert) after using the inversion method with coconut oil. My hair is incredibly thick and there is lots and lots of it, my issue is that it grows out and not down! So frustrating! I’m getting married in December and I’m trying to grow out my hair for the big day. My 20 year old daughter (who has beautiful long, blonde hair) and my fiancé (who is folicley challenged) think I will get it cut before the day. I really want to prove them wrong so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this works xxxx
Thick hair looks luxe long and is great for a pixie, where a stylist has a lot to work with. But that of-the-moment choppy bob? Not so much. “Thick hair that’s shoulder-length can very easily get big,” says Santiago.

Traction alopecia is caused by adding too much strain on the hair on one’s head. Tight ponytails and other styles that require added tension to the hair are often what cause this disease. It can also occur on the face in areas where the hair is often styled. Plucking or waxing one’s eyebrows frequently, for example, can yield suppressed hair growth in the area.
Great article Anushka, Thanks for sharing such a great tips to make our hair grow faster. Your article provides the informative content about how actually hair grows and the phases of hair production. I appreciate your article. I am also having a website named Miemani which is the best hair repair salon in the East London. It offers different hair styles, and hair repair services at the affordable price.

I just got my hair cut to around mid-back but before that I had waist length hair. I really miss my long hair and want to know how well the inversion-with-coconut-oil method works. I’m hoping by the end of this month my hair will be back to it’s original length. Is it possible for it to all grow back in a month? (I just started the inversion method)
If you’re considering this look, I recommend air drying with some sea salt spray worked in to bring out natural texture. You can blow dry just the roots if more volume is desired. Then take a 1-inch curling iron or wand and wrap random sections around it to give the hair some polish and define the waves.
The key to a good style starts in the shower. We washed and conditioned with L’Oreal B6 Biotin. We then used Dual Stylers by Techni.art Liss and Pump-up (also by L’Oreal) for volume with a velvety smooth finish. I finished the look with Kevin Murphy Shimmer.Shine and a little hairspray!
Hi Lewis! Thanks for joining the discussion. I have a similar problem in that my hair at the back of my head take longer to grow than the front! I would try the inversion method and concentrate on these areas alone so you’ll be boosting the blood flow around the sides. Make sure you measure your hair before and after to see whether it’s worked on not. Remember, massage those sides every day for five minutes for seven days.
I have a pixie cut and I’m getting tired of it, I just want my hair back ( at least to shoulder length ) before Christmas ( thanksgiving even! ) is there any ( cheap) way I could grow it out FAST? I’m in 7th grade and really don’t want a LONG awkward stage of growing out my hair. I know it will look akward at some points but if you could help me shorten that time that would be GREAT!!!
Science has discovered a little bit about how hair growth is controlled at the cellular level in the body, but not enough to know how we can directly speed up hair growth. Read on to learn about the science behind hair growth and how to use that knowledge for healthier hair.
Hi Meredith. Sorry to hear you were having trouble with your hair. We often forget just how fragile it can be – it’s really important to look after it! I’m so glad to hear our tips have been helping you out. Here’s to many more years of a happy head of hair!
Some advice that I would give is that this haircut works best with thick hair. Also, make sure to go to the right person to cut your hair because it has to be well proportioned depending on a your face shape and structure.

Not quite! Vitamin A is important and supports your overall health, which can influence the health of your hair, but it hasn’t been shown to directly influence hair thickness or growth. Pick another answer!
A keen money-saver and fan of all things natural, Anushka enjoys making her own beauty products and is partial to a bit of crafting. Never short of a clever tip or two, she’s always looking for new ways to make her money go even further.
I’ve been trying to get my hair to lengthen and thicken, I’ve not heard of the gelatin so I’ll be trying that, my hairdresser suggested taking silica tablets, I got mine from Holland &Barratt they were half price, when I ordered which was a bonus. I’ve been taking them a month now, I must say my hair looks to be stronger and in much better condition
“The best candidate for hair restoration surgery has had hair loss for a number of years but has stabilized and is not losing more hair quickly,” Kaufman says. “A person needs to have realistic expectations of what can be done to give them a natural appearing hair line.”
When applied over the scalp, rosemary oil is believed to increase cellular metabolism that stimulates hair growth. A 2013 study conducted at Kinki University in Japan found that rosemary leaf extract improved hair regrowth in mice that experienced hair regrowth interruption induced by testosterone treatment. (11)
“Minoxidil definitely has an effect in most men,” Cotsarelis agrees. “It is not something a bald person would use, but someone starting to go bald would use it. The goal is to maintain the hair you have.”
Your daily requirement is 30 micrograms so ensure you’re getting in the minimum by taking it in a supplement form which is commonly found in health stores like Holland & Barrett. If you prefer, you can eat foods that are naturally high in Biotin. I prefer to do this as the Biotin-rich foods will have many other body-boosting benefits, too such as stronger nails and eyelashes.
“In the last 5 to 7 years there has been a boom in the understanding of hair loss,” Cotsarelis tells WebMD. “We’ve made great strides at the level of basic research. Now the question is how we can convert these findings into clinical benefits. Those kinds of leaps really take decades.”
What it does: The easy-to-ingest powder supplement contains everything hair loves—keratin (the protein that makes up your strands), biotin, and vitamins and minerals—to promote shine, strength, and healthy growth and help reduce shedding.
According to the study, released in the Biomaterials journal last Thursday, the breakthrough came after the scientists successfully mass-produced “hair follicle germs” (HFG) which were created for the first time ever in this way.
For this client, we balayaged caramel pieces around her face then gave her lots of layers blending down from the fringe. For styling, we used a smoothing cream to help blow dry and control frizz and added Unite’s Boosta Spray for a little body while blow drying. I then went back in with Unite’s Argan Oil to smooth any flyaways and gave her a loose beachy wave. We finished with a spray wax to tousle and give that lived-in look.
