This look is extremely versatile and complements most face shapes well. It has lots of texture which allows it to be worn well styled or just left alone to dry. The haircut works best for someone with thicker hair and the long fringe is flattering for a prominent forehead or someone who has grey around the hairline and wants to stretch their color a little longer.
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?
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

Do you how to naturally thicken your hair? And also get healthier-looking skin and thicker, strong nails? This is something I actually get questions about pretty frequently, so I’m going to go over the best foods, the best personal care products and the best supplements to take when it comes to having healthy skin, hair and nails — and specifically, we’re talking about how to thicken hair naturally and also hair loss remedies.
Apply to dry hair and work into scalp. Push it all up on your head and wait for 30 min. Then wash with a mild shampoo. (I use my L’occitane). You may have to wash twice. Then condition as usual. Towel dry. You will feel the difference, It shines, and feels thicker even the second day,. People comment. This is simple and healty, you won’t regret it. The women in my family are all using this combination now. My cousin’s husband said, “Your hair is thicker.” they have been married for 40 years. This works.
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.
I’ve tried these remedies and I’m very confident to say they really work especially the egg treatment. I did it for a couple of weeks and I could see a huge difference in my hair. I had thin brittle hair but now my hair is stronger and thicker. I’d recommend these remedies to anyone with hair problems.
Aloe vera is natural gift . it is used for so many home remedies. It is not only used for beauty tips. but also used as medicine for whole body. It reduces our body heat. thank you giveing a usefull tips.
In addition, I established a beauty regimen that focused on best hair practices and I followed it faithfully for nine whole months. To my delight, not only did I speed up the growth process by a few inches, but I also improved the appearance of my hair from all aspects but specifically its health and feel.
Researchers at Tehran University of Medical Sciences in Iran studied the relationship between iron body status and different types of hair loss. They conducted an analytical case-control study to assess whether diffuse telogen hair loss in women between the ages of 15 and 45 is associated with iron deficiency — 30 women with documented telogen hair loss were compared with 30 women without hair loss.
Ever since I was a teenager I’ve been some what follically changed with a very sluggish hair growth cycle. This is caused by a combination of genetics, over-styling and a low iron count, and my hair can go through phases of struggling to grow new hair so it needs a helping hand every now and then.
Thank you so much for sharing your method, My hair had cut very short and I am very up-sad now. So i want to try your method as far as possible. It compulsory to eat egg for hair growth because I am veg. I even notice my friends who love egg and she eat many. I notice her hair is growing very fast. Mind was just opposite to her. Thank you
Hi Anushka, I had long hair due to bad cut it become medium hair. I have my marriage in 3 months. before i want to get my hair back. i am going to try your method. lets hope for the best. thank You for your article.
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.
This is certainly the single most informative site on hairloss and logical steps on how to reverse it. God bless you for giving me hope that this can be reversed. I am definitely changing my diet and focus my efforts on balancing hormones. Thank you for the excellent presentation of info as well as it’s easy flow with logical inferences / conclusions. Your writing style was so refreshing because it was not bombastic!
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.
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 Maria, There is no telling how your hair will react to the bleach, as everyone’s is different. However, it is unlikely that your har will split at the roots – it splits at the end as this is where hair is weakest. I would recommend putting as much nutrition back into it as possible by using a good-quality hair mask or coconut oil treatment. I hope this helps 🙂
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.
Do not use a towel and wring your hair out when you finish washing as this can cause your hair to break. In case you want the hair to grow thick, try to take care of your hair by gently making it dry with a soft towel and then allowing it to air-dry. This natural way is easy and gives great results.
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.
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?
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 🙂
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.
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.
Broccoli is one of the most important greens you can eat and it’s also a fantastic superfood, essential for hair health and growth. As well as Vitamin A and C it also contains essential B vitamins that are needed for strong hair. The antioxidants in broccoli, particularly vitamin C also prevent hair loss by eliminating the free radicals,  contributing to healthier and thicker hair.
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)
You can buy grass-fed gelatin as a supplement that can be added to hot and room temperature drinks. Great Lakes have an affordable range and can be bought from Amazon. Simply add a teaspoon to your morning tea or coffee.
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
It is truly shocking just how many people skipped reading the article and just went straight to the comments to ask what advice there was to help them grow their hair. I have to wonder if they are just that lazy or did they assume the better recommendations were being withheld for some reason (which would be a ridiculous thing to do) and the article just gave generic advice? Did they imagine the writer saved the best advice for themselves but it would then be shared if asked about it in a comment? The article and all the comments took me just over 6 minutes to read so it’s no wonder that the school system is being criticized and that there is a definate lag behind other countries when it comes to education. It’s crazy. Have a great day!
Hi Anushka I hope I spelled your name correctly. I turned 61 in July and 2017 I had 13 inches of long dark brown gray hair and I’m looking forward in starting you’re method in helping growing my hair long and strong. I’LL keep you and the lady’s posted. Sincerely Robert
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.
Blowing dry the hair every day or using heat-styling tools is another way to thin out the hair. Keep in mind that you are pulling on the hair roots and heating the hair shaft. Instead, allow the hair to air-dry and style it with natural methods. Just use the curling iron, hot rollers and blow dryer for special cases only.
Like many of my follicly challenged brothers, I can remember the exact time I started losing my hair. You may not believe it to look at my proudly gleaming forehead now, but I used to have long hair down to my chin, which I’d often dye black or beautiful, shimmering obsidian, which was the fashion at the time (for people into Linkin Park). Yet, slowly but surely, the long black or shimmering obsidian hairs would start piling up on my pillow every morning, and in an act of defiance against what I considered my own biological inferiority, I shaved it all off, and have had a skinhead ever since.
Ultimately, balding is a part of life, because it’s a part of death. Hair-loss treatments and replacements speak to a grim side of us that seeks immortality, of wanting to be young forever. Growing old is just as important in life as being young. In fact, it may be more important, and being comfortable with your body as it ages is a massive part of that.
You may start seeing it work in about four months, but it can take up to eight to 12 months to really jumpstart hair growth. It also might irritate your scalp, cause more facial hair to appear, or trigger a rapid heart rate.
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.
My hair is too short what can i do. I use only coconut oil in 1 day in 1 week . so mam plz tell what can i do i grow our hair fastly. My hair is also curly … So mam plz tell i use only coconut oli . plz tell
This is a great start for anyone with thicker, darker hair that’s looking to go into their first balayage. It’s a realistic goal, plus it lends itself to less maintenance by working with the client’s natural color and blending the hand-painted color up into the client’s root.
I had long thick n shining hairs in school days.. now I’m 20yrs old. now my hairs became very very thin.. so plzz help to get thick hairs. I’m staying in hostel so I can’t use egg. plz suggest me any shampoo and oil
Keratin-based products fill out the hair cuticle and defrizz, says Santiago. She likes Sally Hershberger Hyper Hydration Super Keratin Spray for year-round use, plus a little extra styling time in summer. “I know that’s when everyone wants the ease of wash-and-go styles, but for women with thick hair, it’s worth taking the time to really work in the product to avoid a bad hair day.”
Caviar Treatment Omega+ Nourishing Oil is amazing. It has a concentrated dose of Omega-3 and C22 Fatty Acids that deeply nourish hair while adding intense shine. This results in smooth, silky soft and shiny hair.
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.
“Learning about your hair texture is so critical because then you can determine exactly what products you need for your hair,” explains celebrity hairstylist Vernon François, who works with Lupita Nyong’o. “This will inevitably lead you down the path to experiencing the best response from the products you use.”

It’s actually a normal thing for hair to fall out. Hair starts its life with a long growing phase, and usually about 80% of our hair is in this phase at any given time. But other hairs are getting ready to leave our heads.
Topical ointments are generally for people experiencing hair loss. They may help your hair grow. Studies show that these products are effective in treating alopecia, or hair loss, and promoting hair growth:
So I want to try the inversion method to make my hair grow longer using coconut oil, but what brand is the best to get in coconut oil? I see the brand Palmers and OGX come up a lot, which one should I choose??
