One of the reasons ur hair is falling is because u wash it everyday. That makes ur hair fall Very Very badly. I’ll give u some tips that worked for me. I had very curly, thin and short hair but now I have thick hair which falls to my waist! This is wat I use: castor oil mixed with almond oil (or olive oil) I use this everyday or sometimes after every 2 days. And also the shampoo and conditioner that I use and realllllllly helped me are Mane ‘n Tail- if u live in uae or india (asia basically) u can get them at Spinney’s- and I use egg for my hair and if ur growing out ur hair then STAY AWAY FROM HEAT (hair straighteners, blow dryers etc) because trust me, if u use heat on ur hair it will not grow quickly. Especially for people with curly hair. And do not use hair sprays or heat protectants they really damage ur hair and make it dry.
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.
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?
To put it plainly, thick refers to the actual width of a single strand of hair, while density is how closely packed the hair follicles are on your scalp. Hair can have high density, which is when there’s a lot of strands growing near each other, or have low density, which is when the follicles are more spaced out on the scalp. Usually, straight strands tend to be denser than tight curls or afro hair.
In Chinese medicine hair growth is related to a healthy liver and kidneys. The herb that is traditionally prescribed for hair growth is called He Shou Wu. During my program, I added it to my smoothies. I also started every morning with a cup of warm water, half a lemon, and liquid artichoke extract, which I found at the health food store, which is said to detoxify the liver.
This bob is asymmetric and has a deep side part. The heavier side of the part is layered more to make sure it isn’t too bulky. The lighter side of the part isn’t layered as much since there isn’t as much hair on that side.
My best description of this look would be versatile and timeless. My favorite thing about this look is that it is exactly as described. It is versatile in that it is wearable for almost anyone, especially for women with thicker hair.
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 can also make a hydrating hair mask by mixing two tablespoons of wheatgerm oil with half of a ripe mashed avocado. Apply this hair mask on freshly shampooed hair and allow it to sit for at least 20 minutes. Rinse your hair thoroughly and then shampoo your hair.
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.
I have also started the regimen based on your answer; however, I’ve applied the rosemary oil topically. I’ve heard that ingesting essential oils could be harmful, especially if they’re not labeled “therapeutic”. Do you have any comments, opinions or research regarding this?
As it turns out, just because your ponytail is extra full, it doesn’t automatically mean your hair is thick. In reality, it might actually be dense. “One of the biggest myths about hair thickness that people make, especially if they have any ounce of curl, is that their hair is thick, unruly, and unmanageable,” says François. “But, what you’ll find is that the majority of people that actually have curly hair, but it’s not thick or dense. So when they straighten their hair, you actually see it is quite fine.”
hi:) I NEED my hair to grow before Sunday. I’ve been trying something someone told me and they said after you shower put conditioner in your hair and keep it in but I just find it greasy and not sure if it works. do you know anything about that?
The speed at which your hair grows can depend on two things: genetics and the shape of your follicles. Asian hair is on average the thickest and most coarse hair compared to Caucasian and African hair. Now I am of Asian descent but my mother has very thin hair while my father has very thick hair. I have a combination of both their hair so I have thick hair strands but unfortunately not much of them!
This is for ‘Rain’ You will find fenugreek seeds at any shop that sells Indian Spices. It is an essential in making curry so they sell it by the bucket load. Alternatively, look for a spice shop online. I live in Spain, and I can find it. Good luck, and try making a curry from scratch! Jenna
This is a great article, thank you for the additional tips. I already use a great sulfur oil from consciousessence.com that gives me about an inch growth a month so I’ll try the inversion to see if I can get even more growth 🙂 I am really excited and can’t wait to try.
But aloe vera juice is also great for thickening your hair, so you’ll see a lot of natural hair shampoos and conditioners today that have aloe vera in the ingredients. Aloe vera has tons of vitamins and minerals that are present keep your hair strong and healthy. Because of aloe vera’s antibacterial and antifungal properties, it also helps with dandruff, and the gel’s enzymes can rid the scalp of dead cells and promote the regeneration of skin tissue around the hair follicles.

Studies are still new on the effects of caffeine on hair growth, but a cell study found that caffeine may have growth-promoting effects on hair. Using hair products with caffeine, like this shampoo by AB Crew, as an ingredient may help.
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 🙂
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.

Hi, I cut my hair REALLY short almost two years ago and I’m desperate for it to grow back. My goal is to have hair that passes my hips. Right now it’s at my mid/lower back and really is in that awkward stage of short/long. How do I make it grow to my hips by summer?
hi Jenna, where did you buy fenugreek seeds in Spain? I’m living in Valencia Spain, I’m looking for this for a long time and I can’t find, I don’t know where to buy, could you please tell me where to buy…thanks
I had already been taking zinc and biotin, so we’re on the exact same path. However, I’ve added pumpkin seed oil based on Axe’s article. So far, things are going well (it’s been two months), my barber says he sees an improvement and is atonished at the overall rate of growth of my hair (I have to go weekly for haircuts). I have seen in the studies that it takes about 6 months before Rosemary oil starts showing dramatic effects.
– Advocates using heat tools everyday for styling to cut back on damage if you need to use a blow dryer wait till your hair is almost dry to reduce breakage & never comb or brush wet hair , hair is more weaker and prone to breakage when it’s wet .
Hey! It’s such a beautiful article, I have confidence in this. Well, reading it makes me pretty sure that I’m going to have long hairs! Thanks a ton! Hoping to write soon. I’ll surely brief you about my growth within a short span! Regards! You’re doing a great job! 🙂

Hi Mrunmayee. Your hair’s rate of growth depends on many different factors, so giving an accurate estimate would be hard. The hair grows an average of 1/2 inch per month, so if you measure from your shoulders to your waist, you should get a rough idea of how long this will take. Speed the process up by trying some of our hair growth tips! 🙂
Oh no sorry to hear that, how frustrating for you! I definitely recommend the scalp massage using some natural oils like coconut or olive oil. Try this every day for 5 minutes once a day for a week and let me know how you get on.
Hi Caroline, really sorry to hear what happened with your hair – I bet it was painful! Have you tried a clip-in fringe for the time being? They look realistic and will help hide the spot. You could try some scalp massage when the skin has healed too.

Hi Allys. The inversion method is free and easy to do! Sit down with your head between your legs, and massage your scalp for 10 minutes a day. By the end of the week, you should already have noticed a dramatic increase in length. I hope this helps 🙂
Please help. My hair has always been my pride and joy. I figured since it is pretty damn healthy, it could deal with some bleach damage. And I figured the master stylist who did all the color-corrections would know how much would be too much. I was wrong, and now I want to burst into tears every time I look at my hair or touch it. I just don’t know what to do. My hair has also NEVER been shorter than this and it breaks and falls out. What should I do to regrow hair?
