Hi there, you can try all the tips here to see if you can stimulate your scalp. I recommend doing the inversion method with coconut oil – every day for seven days. You can also leave the coconut oil in your hair overnight. Good luck!
The other currently approved drug for hair loss is Propecia (generic name, finasteride). It works only for men. Why? It keeps the male sex hormone testosterone from forming its DHT by-product. DHT signals shorten the growth phase — and lengthen the rest stage — of hormone-sensitive follicles.

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
I came across this site while searching for natural healing for Tendinitis in my arm. That was over five hours ago. I am learning so much from this site and a lot of it I already know to be true so I know I can trust Dr. Josh’s words for the things that I don’t know. Thank you Dr. Josh! You are a blessing on this earth!
Well kimp, English that isn’t in the form of broken texting would have a better result. But to be serious you can’t cure being naturally bald just slowing the process of thinning and balding faster then you would. So in short this cant help something your body’s genetic code gave up on, as it eans as you age whatever random code is at the bottom breaks and dies off in some cases it’s hair color or eye sight and yes balding. hope this helped clear up your problem.

Hi Cindy I’m not too sure really it depends on your normal hair growth rate and whether these tips personally work for you.Why don’t you give them a go and make sure you keep a record of your length of hair every few weeks?
I lost a lot of my natural curls and hair, after internal bleeding, gallstones and just being sick. After throwing away my blow dryer and air dryer my hair over night, it started growing in again. The new undergrowth has returned curly but the rest is wavy at most… any tips to getting my curl back w/o perms and chemicals? It has been almost 2yrs, my hair is almost 3ft. Long
If you want to repair split ends and hair fall, you can use a deep-conditioning method. Aside from speeding up the hair growth, your hair will become much softer. You can buy once at any local store or use mayonnaise. Simply, apply some the conditioning one into the hair and allow it to soak for about 20-30 minutes. Wash it off as usual with cold water. Repeat this method once a month.
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!
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!
My favorite thing about the color is my guest’s ability to try different pastel tones as she wishes. The beauty of pastels now is that the more faded they get, the more fashion-forward your hair looks. The cut gives her styling flexibility. She can wear it smooth, textured, tucked behind one ear, or pushed back away from the forehead.
My was really good and healthy 3 years ago. with time I started ironing my and using heat a lot so my is thinning its weak and I also feel like its lifeless (although its not). I started growing it by using natural oils and it did work but my hair is naturally oily and it made more oily and greasy but I did not care because it worked but at some point my hair stopped responding to the natural oil treatments and i also tried watching my diet but I think I was doing it wrong. When I see my hair 3 years back it was so healthy it was not oily or greasy it was thick. I hope you can tell me about more treatments!!!
Adopting the ayurvedic beauty practice of Bhringraj oil could be beneficial, too. Bhringraj is oil made of Eclipta Alba and sesame, which can be bought at an Indian store or can also be made at home. Eclipta Alba has been used for centuries and in studies has been shown to be an effective growth promoter.

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.
Try olaplex treatments. Stop heat styling for a while, rinse in the shower with cold water. Use cold air with the blow dryer. Use quality salon shampoo and conditioner AND leave in conditioner. Eat fruits and vegetables daily, protein at every meal. Take a daily multivitamin and omega 3 fish or krill oil. (Do not take omega 6 or 9 is it unnecessary.) And most of all patience – it will grow back!

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.
My hair was pretty dead, thin, falling out, and just wasn’t looking good at all. After using the Lady Soma Vitamin Hair Boost for only two weeks I have noticed a HUGE difference in my hair! It feels so much thicker and healthier and it has grown more than it has in a long time! My hair stopped growing and it would just break off, but this product has totally transformed my hair

A human study conducted in 2015 investigated the clinical efficacy of rosemary oil in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia. Patients with androgenetic alopecia were treated for six months with either rosemary oil or minoxidil (2 percent), which served as a the control group. Minoxidil is a medication used to stimulate hair growth and slow balding.
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.
Why egg yolk? Yolk is mostly fats. It may add fatrnmess/soiftness to hair, but if you are after protein (and I am not sure if topical application will actually add to real hair) the albumin is good protein,,,,in a _fresh_ egg….

Autoimmune disease may cause alopecia areata. In alopecia areata, the immune system revs up for unknown reasons and affects the hair follicles. In most people with alopecia areata, the hair grows back, although it may temporarily be very fine and possibly a lighter color before normal coloration and thickness return.

Hi Charity. It sounds like your hair needs some nourishment! All is not lost, though, coconut oil should soon sort you out. I’d recommend using coconut oil a few times a week, regular trims (to keep your hair healthy and from splitting, which will lead to it shortening) and finally the inversion method to stimulate hair growth. I hope this helps 🙂

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.
“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.”

Hi Taylor. I would say, from personal experience, the inversion method is the most effective for hair GROWTH. If you want to maintain your hair health and growth, I would advise a coconut oil treatment too as it nourishes the hair and keeps it healthy. I hope this helps 🙂
