This is true. I only recently started to use oils on my hair and used to had dandruff -not any more! my hair where unmanageable but seem to be much better now. In use combinations of castor, almond, olive and coconut oil used them for both hair face and body in different way and I am in LOVE with oils.
Hi I am samjhana. I hav a big problem with my hair. My hair is so curly like I hav made it in the parlour but its real. My hair is so fizzy. There is too much hairfall and it doesn’t grow. 2 yrs ago I hav shoulder length hair then I cut it to thaicut hair. At the year end it became shoulder length but from then, I hav been waiting for 2 yrs but it doesn’t grow even 1cm.I hav tried many hair products suggested by many parlourists but nothing happened can u suggest me anything that works?
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!

Hey! So… it might be a little too early to share my thoughts, because it’s been only a few days I read this things above, but somewhere in my unconsciousness I never really wanted to believe these tips work, because for example on youtube – where I spend half my life – there are so many videos about this, and they are so clickbait, and the uploaders basically advertise a lot of products as well if you know what I mean.. But your tutorial seemed legit to me, and I’ve read it from the first word to the last. So what I did was to buy… let me get them… uhm so here we go: HARKONTROLL BOOST that says it contains keratin, zink, koppar, (copper ???), niacin, pantotensyra, vitamin B6, and BIOTIN, I also bought B Active tablettes, that mentions TONS of vitamins on the container, and I bought some walnuts, pecans, and peanuts as well. Then the inversion method… I already did 4 days, so there is 3 more left, and in the first 2 days I did not actually hang my head down, I was just lying on the bed, and I don’t use coconut oil, I just applied some Garnier hair conditioner before the 5 minute massage… but I think the change is already visible. Also my hair is very short now, and during the last week I pushed it back with a beanie, but today when I got out of the shower I pulled my “bangs” down on my forehead, and I think it wasn’t that long a week ago. Keep in mind I have 3 days left of the inversion method, but since I decided to grow my hair long again, I will repeat the process in January. If I do so, I will share if I got good results
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?
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.
I mentioned this oil in the Inversion Method section so if you don’t already own a tub of Coconut Oil  make sure you visit your health food store or online retailer. A tub will last you a good few months and it’s packed with vitamins and fatty acids to help nourish your hair.

I can also recommend using a wire scalp massager like the one below if you prefer. It’s a lot easier and won’t tire out your hands or fingers. Get one for as little as £1.92 from Amazon with free delivery.
Hi Ivyena. You can leave it on overnight under a shower cap if you wish, which will serve as a deeply-moisturising hair mask. However, I wouldn’t leave it on during the day. The oil will stain your clothes and can also make your hair look very greasy and unclean. I hope this helps 🙂
One 2012 study found that when people evaluated photos of the same men pictured with and without their hair, they saw the men as “nearly an inch taller and 13% stronger when pictured with shaved heads versus with hair.”
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.
Your body needs water to work properly and to grow, and so does the hair. According to a research [3], drinking more water may be the easiest way to help your hair grow thicker. Try to drink 8-10 glasses of water a day to get the best results.
Hi,I had lost my hair because of bad diets specially in-front of my head was terrible.It affected on my self confident badly.But I started to apply a combination of Castor oil(2/3)+ Coconut oil(1/3). I do it every 2 days and leave it for 2-3 hours on my scalp and then wash it with shampoo which has 5.5 ph and also rinse with mild water.Now after 2 months I can see miracle,new hairs are growing also my hairs are thicker.
I totally agree Camilla! I’m a big advocate of nourishing your hair from the insides, too. I load up on eggs, almonds, spinach and broccoli when my hair is not feeling it’s best, and the difference is astounding! Thanks for sharing your tips, love Flaxseed.
To get long thick and super soft hair massage organic coconut oil in to your hair 2-4 times a week (leave in 10-25 mins) wash out with shampoo. do this untill hair is growing and healthy. ( No split-ends ) and reduse to 2-4 times a month.
Hi Anushka, I am going to try the inversion method. Thanks for the tip! I already take biotin every day and it sure does help make my hair thicker and healthier – I will double up for the next week to see if that helps with hair growth. I’ve been taking it for a year and a half when I started growing my hair out from a pixie cut – it’s also great for growing and strengthening your fingernails. I started growing out my hair 18 months ago and now it is to my shoulders which is roughly .75 of an inch per month. I’ve had a few trims to shape it up – my hair was almost shaved above my ears so it was like starting my hair growth from scratch. I also drink a lot of water and eat plenty of almonds & avocados because I like their health benefits and I eat plenty of other fruits and veggies. A good diet is key to hair growth. I changed my diet from lots of pasta, rice and sugar and the difference in how I feel is amazing. So is my hair since I changed my diet. It was very difficult to break old habits and to stay away from most sugars and sweets, but it was well worth it for my hair growth and for how good I feel. For my main meal each day, I eat a huge bowl of raw veggie salad like cucumbers (my fave), carrots, celery, peppers, lettuce (optional), olives, sunflower seeds, nuts or anything else that suits my fancy at the time, covered in a salad dressing that I make from vinegar and olive oil with spices or sometimes I eat them naked sans dressing. 🙂 I also eat a small portion of meat, beans or eggs for protein and usually a slice of good bread, but the veggie salad is the biggest part of my meal. Delish! Not only has this been very beneficial for my hair, I’ve trimmed my down waistline without really trying. I have seen a big difference in my hair since changing my diet. It’s thicker, shinier and healthier than ever! I also use coconut, olive oil or argan oil in my hair from time to time and I will add the scalp massage with oil to see if this will also work – I’m excited to see if I can grow my hair an inch or more in a week!
Alopcia areata is not related to a more serious condition known as cicatricial alopecia, in which the immune system attacks the stem cells in the bulge of the folicle. This results in permanent hair loss.
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?
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)
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.
“And it’s very different today to how it was. Men are taking care of themselves and how they look, they’ll keep in shape, moisturise, eat well. Dealing with their hair-loss is not so much of a big deal now, it’s just part of the package”.
My hair is so thin, it’s embarrassing!! I have a bunch of split ends, it’s frizzy, and WAY TOO THIN! I condition it everytime I wash it, (which at the most is every other day, i know that’s bad), I hardly ever use heat, seriously like NEVER! I always just put it in a braid or a ponytail. But it’s just too thin. What REALLY works? And what is the routine and details that I should use?
Hi Selena. Sorry to hear about your suffering with tonsil cancer. It’s great to hear you’re on the mend! You could also try the inversion method to stimulate hair growth. Regrowth hair product also sounds like a good idea. Do let us know how you get on! Thanks, Steph
– Don’t keep your hair out, ponytailed, or in a bun every day. Keep hair clean and use good oil in hair. After completing those steps, braid you hair. Many people wash their hair and braid it when it’s still wet, don’t do that because you hair will smell, you might also lose hair, and etc.

I got my hair cut into a pixi cut last SUMMER! now only may do i have a half bob. GIVE ME HELp cause i cant buy any of these things and i desperatly need help. Can you estimate how long (in months ) itll take to get my hair to my shoulders?
as for me… I av a very stubborn hair n a lot of dandruff in my hair. I just started making my hair in may n we r in September bt still my hair seems too slow In growth. I tried relaxing it but it didn’t even relax…. it still luks virgin as usual…. so I dnt know if der could b a different solution to dis problem of mine. I am thinking it’s jst because I am a Nigerian. but still some of us have long hair including my mom. I dnt knw maybe I am not being patient or it is d nature of my hair
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.
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 (:
If giving yourself a blowout works your arms more than kettlebell class, you probably have really thick hair. (We’ve considered buying the Blo and Go from that infomercial strictly because of arm fatigue.)
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!
Wear a swim cap in chlorinated pools. Have you ever had a stylist ask you if you’re a swimmer? Chlorine stays in hair and makes it visibly dry and damaged. Protect your hair in the pool, or be sure to wash it with a good shampoo before the chlorine dries.
Since my guest had a round face shape, she can pretty much pull off anything. I try not to limit ideas and styles because of their face shape. I encourage my clients to be brave! Take this hair journey with me and I will be there every step of the way.
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)
