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 🙂
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.

And why is it so important to know if your hair is thick and dense? You’ll be able to pick the right products to really enhance your hair. “If you have curly hair you can also use products that have too much sulfates which and would ultimately dry hair even more and leave it quite lifeless. With straight hair, you can use ion and voluimizing shampoo in the wrong way and end up with really greasy hair. So, not knowing how your hair really behaves can often have a negative impact on your hair,” explains François.
Have you noticed more hair in your brush lately than you used to see, or is you hair falling out in clumps? Do you look in the mirror and see scalp where you used to see only hair? Losing anywhere from 50 to 150 hairs per day is considered normal, but when you start losing more than that it becomes problematic, not to mention visibly noticeable. What’s really behind your hair loss, and how can you treat the cause, not just the symptoms, with effective hair loss remedies?

“Sonic hedgehog can convert resting hair into growing hair,” Cotsarelis says. “We really don’t know it’s full role, but if it controls follicle size and growth, it could be something a treatment might be based around.”
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.
I know it can be frustrating to lose your hair, but don’t lose hope. With a healthy diet and lifestyle along with consistent use of natural hair loss remedies and a dose of patience, it’s truly possible for your hair to grow faster and thicker in the near future.
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 🙂
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.
Many men and women worry about thinning hair or hair loss. Although balding or hair thinning has a hereditary component, it can also be brought about by other factors such as poor nutrition, pollution, poor hair care, and use of harsh chemicals on hair. Some solutions to get thicker hair may be difficult to apply, but there are several easy ways to improve hair thickness.

The drug has many known side effects, including unwanted hair growth. After studying how the drug affects hair follicles, the team realized CsA reduces the expression of a protein that inhibits the growth of many tissues, including hair follicles.
Horrible customer service/customer appreciation. Rates increased for a simple haircut in less than 5 years from 65.00 a cut to 100.00 a cut. Had to wait ONE month to get appointment in with hairdresser, was not made aware at time of appointment scheduling that recent rate went up from 85.00 to 1…
This is a style that needs some attention every day to get the perfect finish, so having a good hairdryer and a hair straightener would be needed to perfect the look, along with using the correct hair products.
Hi Bella, oh no I hope these tips will help! Everyone reacts differently so I can’t tell you for sure whether it will work, it’s best to start with the scalp massage and measure your hair before and after to see if it’s worked. All the best.
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.

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. 🙂
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 Mal, thanks for getting in touch! Getting regular trims are essential for healthy hair growth, plus if your hair is dry and split ended then it’ll only appear shorter even if it is growing. I would get a trim about 1-2 inches to tidy up your ends then use a moisturising oil on your hair every week. Are you using hot tools and how often are you washing your hair?
Hair loss is typically more than just an annoying physical problem. For many people experiencing hair loss, the daily suffering is very real and takes a huge toll on them in many ways. Research has shown that hair loss can cause “dramatic and devastating emotions in patients, which can negatively impact their self-esteem, body image, and/or self-confidence.” (18)
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!!!
A more recent conventional treatment option for hair loss is low level laser therapy that uses light and heat treatment for genetic hair loss (androgenetic alopecia) in both men and women. To date, doctor opinions of this treatment are mixed with many rejecting it completely. (15)
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. 🙂
Hiya Emily. Thanks a lot for getting in touch. Our methods stimulate hair growth. This won’t increase the amount of hair strands you have, just their rate of growth. Your hair will thus, remain just as thick, but grow more. I hope this helps 🙂
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.
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?
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
Surgery is another conventional option that’s more costly and invasive. First there is hair transplantation surgery, which takes hair from another area of the scalp where hair is growing well and moves it to a balding or thinning area. This surgery is most commonly performed for male pattern baldness. Only around 5 percent of female hair loss sufferers are said to be good candidates for hair transplant surgery. This is due to the fact that unlike men who tend to lose hair in concentrated areas, women typically experience hair loss all over their scalps. (14)
Having extremely long hair has been my passion since I was 14. I used to think that it was pretty tough. With this article, wikihow articles, and pinterest, I’m able to get my hair to go below the waistline and almost to my hips. I’m getting closer to classic length without realizing it. 6-8 inches to my goal length, baby (15-20 cm)! I eat more than enough almonds almost every day. More than any other nut I’ve eaten. Nobody in my family has hair as long as mine. The longest my female friends and family can go is down to their armpits. My sister had waist length hair and now it stayed at armpit length since last summer (June 2017). Most people don’t start doing treatments to their hair till later in life. It really was a good thing I started paying attention and doing all of the easy steps. Just now as I was doing the inversion method, I apply a really small amount of Argan oil (1 pump to avoid greasiness) and massage it in. It’s like a natural serum without the harsh chemicals including alcohol.
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???
well I used the egg once today and im not joking but my hair grew a little bit, I love this trick now but it stinks like hell and it kinda dries your skin too, if you ever get it on your skin at least.
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!
You cannot really stop that. You are welcome to dye your hair, though. A balanced diet and exercise with daily nutrients will additionally keep your hair healthy and might delay some color changes but mostly it’s genetics so you can’t do a lot. It never hurts to focus on keeping your hair healthy though.
Hi Luis, I’m really sorry to hear that. Have you sought medical advice from your Doctor regarding this problem? I hope you will be able to try a few of these tips and tricks, even better if you know someone who can do the scalp massage on you that will help promote growth and help relax you. Scalp massage is a fantastic stress buster, and can really help. Good luck.
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.
According to a research about the effects of stress on your hair [2], stress can be one of the main causes of hair loss. So, you should try to calm down your life, and you will find that your hair starts growing thicker. For example, you can try meditation that may help you find how to deal with your stress better.
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?
