Hi I am 15 years old and I have always put my hair into pony tail and messy buns but have now noticed that my hair is becoming weaker and thinner. I have naturally thin hair and oily hair but it had became really thin so what should I do to get thicker hair again and make it healthy for a cheap cost
I further promoted circulation by giving myself the time for five full minutes (or, if you’re giving it a go, as close as you can manage) of a yoga inversion pose every day. This might be a headstand, a forward fold, or any other pose that promotes blood to flow to the scalp.
I know this is not really part of the article, but if my hair has lots of split ends that reaches to my scalp, do I have no choice but to chop it off? My hair is at shoulder length and it has been like that for 2 years and it’s the same length. My hair is not that fried but it’s pretty damaged. I did the unthinkable and I chopped off the side hairs underneath to let them grow healthy and fresh again. It kinda looks stupid now but will this help me of getting the short hairs long again? Any tips?
Everyone’s body is different, but most people should be able to comfortably wash their hair two to three times a week without it getting too oily. If your hair is naturally quite oily, you might want to wash it three to four times a week instead.

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?

Hi there Twinkle, Sorry to hear you’re frustrated with your hair. I know how it feels when all you want is it to grow yet it’s going nowhere! Have you tried the Inversion Method yet? It takes a bit of effort, but it worked wonders for me and I’m sure it could for you too. I hope this helps. 🙂
“The fact this new agent, which had never even been considered in a hair loss context, promotes human hair growth is exciting because of its translational potential: it could one day make a real difference to people who suffer from hair loss,” said the University of Manchester’s Dr Nathan Hawkshaw, who co-authored the study, in statement.
I had to cut my hair really short cause I bleached my hair way to much and it got stretchy but now I want my hair to grow at least 5 inches if I do all of the things you said in this article how long would it take to grow my hair 5 inches
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?
Research it for hair, skin and nails health and research the essential iodine it contains as this essential element, which most of us are deficient in, is crucial to thyroid health. As you may know healthy thyroxine levels support shiny, healthy hair.
I started eating Chia seeds and I have been amazed at how thick my hair has come in at the age of 56. 2 TBLS. a day soaked in liquid first. Read on the web all the wonderful things Chia seeds can do! IT’S ALL TRUE!!
After six months of treatment, photograph assessment demonstrated a superior improvement in the supplemented group. Hair growth increased compared to the control group, and 89.9 percent of the participants reported a reduction in hair loss, as well as an improvement in hair diameter (86 percent) and hair density (87 percent).

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.
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 🙂
Hi Mel. The average rate of hair growth is roughly 0.5inches/month so achieving 15 inches in a year and a half is very unlikely. To increase hair growth, be sure to try out tips! I thoroughly recommend coconut oil and the inversion method 🙂

Hi Kathleen I’m not too sure to be honest, if you’re experiencing some hair loss through medication then you would not want to increase it by vigorously massaging your head. I would try the rest of the tips and perhaps a more gentler scalp massage?
According to studies, taking high doses of biotin can help treat weak hair and nails. In fact, this benefit of vitamin B7 biotic was first discovered when horses were effectively treated with biotin to correct problems with the horses’ hoofs becoming brittle and cracked.
I have a mental disorder that causes me to pull my hair when i’m stressed out or when i have really bad anxiety. I’m wondering if these methods would work. i’m deciding to shave my hair off completely so i can grow even together. but would the methods work?
I have also learned that cats like to step on laptops at a bad time, thus causing distractions. It would be better written as “I have learned to never take anyone who can’t spell seriously”. Shame on me.
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.)
Hi Anushka, Certainly I am gonna try inversion method for a week in a month. Can you please share your before and after pics for hair difference. Also want to ask 1 question that whenever I massage my hair and wash it. Hair falls out a lot (lot means lot) is that normal? And how many times in a weak should one wash her hair if getting better with dandruff and dry hair. Thank you for the response!
Testosterone replacement is becoming popular for men. Cotsarelis warns that this may accelerate hair loss. Propecia might help — but because it prevents testosterone breakdown, it might affect the dose of male hormone replacement therapy. Cotsarelis warns men taking both Propecia and testosterone replacement to make sure their doctor carefully monitors their testosterone levels.
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.
Hi Meredith. It sounds to me like the chlorine is definitely damaging your hair. Are you using a water-tight cap when swimming? Additionally, are you having it cut regularly? Chlorine will damage your hair, making it more prone to splitting. Regular haircuts will prevent this. I would recommend using a weekly hair treatment, such as coconut oil or a specific hair mask from LUSH to reinject nutrients back into your hair. I hope this helps. Thanks, Steph
I had chemotherapy and radiation for tonsil cancer about 10 years ago and I can’t get my hair to grow no matter what I’ve tried. I was told to try coconut oil and a regrowth hair product. Will it work or any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated
can sulfur 8 be helpful when growing your hair? The reason why I ask is because last month, I bought some to help me grow my hair out & How must I do the inversion method? Should I use oil & other things when doing it or no?
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.
Stacked bobs create volume and will make thick hair appear even thicker. Sometimes it can even make really thick hair look like a flying saucer! Instead of getting a stacked bob, get a layered bob. Layering your hair will remove volume while still giving you style and movement.
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!
Hello Ma’m, I’ve got a shaggy haircut and now my hair about 6″ and I want my upto 12″ in 2 months, and that’s what wanted to ask that, is it possible to have such a long growth in such a short time, if I’ll try the above methods?
I recommend this look to anyone that would like a change without having to commit to high maintenance upkeep. This look is very flattering for many face shapes and since it is so easy to maintain, can work for many lifestyles.
How long the anagen phase lasts depends on how long your hair is and if the cells in your follicle base are continuing to multiply and become hair cells. Hair grows because matrix cells shed some of their structure as they reach the upper follicle. The shed structure combines with keratins to form hair strands that exit your skin’s surface.
