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.
But through everything I learned, Lemon truly does help with hair growth. I can’t even describe it with the proper words it deserves. It leaves that soft, shining texture and color. it allows your hair to look free.. and… Just see for yourself, will you? And personally, i believe that one-day-over-ripe-day is the best way (:
Women with thick curly hair often complain that their curls are difficult to style and resort to flat ironing as the only salvation from disobedient curls. But why not to use the special qualities of your hair structure to your own benefit? You only need to choose the right haircut, and your curls are going to look superb! [click to continue…]
Hi Sarah. It sounds like you achieved really great results with your hair growth. The problem is that hair needs regular maintenance, or else the ends will become unhealthy and split. I’d recommend you to get it cut regularly (a small trim every 2 months) from now on. I hope this helps 🙂
You don’t have to use the oil, but it will help condition so your hair will feel stronger and shinier than ever. For best results, get your hair trimmed before you do the Inversion Method. If you have split ends, you may not be able to see the full growth as the splits in the hair make it look shorter.
Take one or two eggs, depending on the length of your hair, and beat it properly. Apply the egg on wet hair and allow it to sit for about 30 minutes. Wash your hair with lukewarm water and shampoo. You can use this protein treatment once or twice a week.
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.
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.
will all of these things work well enough to get may hair 10 inches longer in less then a year? My graduation is coming next year and my hair is only up to my shoulders. i would like it to be 10 inches longer so i can make my hair style look beautiful for grad. Thank you for the tips 🙂
Hi Maddie. First off, a big well done to you for donating – how brave and thoughtful of you. Secondly, I think shoulder length hair can be beautiful, so don’t worry about looking nice in those wedding pictures. I would recommend the inversion method, 100%. The coconut oil is mainly for hair repair and strength, so if you’re struggling for time, I’d opt to increase growth-rate through stimulation of the scalp. Let us know how you get on! 🙂
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.
Not quite! Keratin fibers are a great, temporary option to make your hair look thicker. The keratin fibers bind to your hair — in particular the tiny, colorless hairs you can’t see, to make your hair look fuller and thicker. Try another answer…
Choose organic products or products made with natural oils and soap agents. Check www.thegoodguide.com for detailed information about different hair products and which ones are better to use for those concerned about hair loss.
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.
Avoid heat styling tools. Use blow dryers, straight irons, and curling irons sparingly. Overusing heated hair appliances causes your hair to become dry and brittle, making it fall out much more easily.
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.
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 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.
best to apply pure coconut oil almost every day in a week except a day and have a head bath , use of shampoo frequent also to be avoided it contains much of chemicals , avoid hair dryer it weakens the hair cells use egg on hair let it for sometime and rinse nothing harm using egg
Testosterone replacement is becoming popular for men. Cotsarelis warns that this may accelerate hair loss. Propecia might help — but because it prevents testosterone breakdown, it might affect the dose of male hormone replacement therapy. Cotsarelis warns men taking both Propecia and testosterone replacement to make sure their doctor carefully monitors their testosterone levels.

Another option is to mix together one egg yolk, one tablespoon of a hair oil of your choice and two tablespoons of water. Use this mixture to massage your scalp thoroughly. Follow this remedy once a week to enjoy thicker hair.
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.
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!!

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?
My experience using coconut oil is really good, I just love it! It’s just soo mositurizing and conditioning I apply it twice a week and my hair is perfect and very healthy. But only applying oils wont help if we also eat healthy food that will help us alot more! Like foods rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, ex: Flaxseed. Foods also rich in Vitamin B6 and B7 are good for hair and vitamin E and C for strong hair!
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
Hi Kayla, thanks for your comments. It’s definitely possible to improve the quality and health of your hair on a limited budget, in my article you’ll find a few different ways to boost hair growth and make your hair stronger. Firstly it’s important to eat plenty of Biotin-rich foods such as eggs, almonds, pecans, walnuts, milk, salmon and avocado. Scalp massage will help boost the blood flow and promote hair growth, you can read more about this in the article, and finally oils definitely help. I do like argan oil, but I prefer raw coconut oil. I hope this helps!
Hair fall, premature greying, and dandruff are the biggest problems faced by all women now a days. The reasons of hair fall are many, like stress, poor diet and lack of hair care routine. Most of the shampoos available in the market have harmful chemicals in them, that end up damaging the hair even more. The best alternative is to use a shampoo with natural ingredients such as aloe vera, rosemary oil, arnica extracts, saw palmetto.
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?
Hi Whitney. I’m so sorry you’re having problems with your hair – we can all relate! You say it breaks off, in which case you might actually NEED a haircut. This will keep it healthy and prevent it from splitting. With regards to other solutions, have you tried any hair treatments? LUSH have some great ones, and there are also hundreds online you can make at home? It sounds to me like your hair is not necessarily struggling to grow, but is unhealthy and therefore you are losing length and fullness. I hope these tips help 🙂
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.
But many experts in the field are sceptical, pointing out that JAKinhibs seem to combat only specific types of alopecia and have not been proven to effect the most common (by far) cause of hair-loss, male pattern baldness.

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.
If this all sounds futuristic, it is. But there are good reasons this kind of technology will move forward. Today, Americans spend $800 million on hair restoration surgery. And they’d spend a lot more if the surgery got faster and better.
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.
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.
