Hi there, I also have hypothyroidism and found that by switching to a more natural form of med ie NatureThroid or NP Thyroid, I have noticed dramatic improvements not only to my hair but also to my all around well being. You may want to consider talking with your doctor. BTW: I did have to find a doc that was not only a primary care/endocrinologist…but also trained in natural medicine. The reg MD’s are not trained to prescribe natural thyroid remedies…but funny..CVS and Walgreens both stock and fill my new scripts…so this amazing natural med is not hard to find..you just have to find a doc to work with you
I have been trying to grow my hair longer for a year and it’s just stuck, I take Biotin 10,000 mcg and my hair is thicker for sure, I have new hair, I Added collagen and vitamin c, I have not tried the inversion method, I do have dry hair, so oil is what I need, can I add egg and flaxseed oil with coconut oil when I massage my head and can I leave these ingredients overnight? I need a quick response!!!
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
Hi Rebecca SO pleased that you’ve benefitted from the tips in the article! I can’t recommend both coconut oil and scalp massage enough – they work absolute wonders for your hair health. So happy for you, just a bit of commitment and you really can see an improvement. Thanks for leaving such a lengthy comment, really made my day and I will try the mask with yogurt and honey too. All the best with your hair journey! Anushka
We large-haired ladies run out of conditioner so much faster than shampoo. For every quarter-size dollop of shampoo you use on your scalp, you gotta use a palm-full of conditioner on your many, many ends.
While you’re doing it make sure you are tipping your head over slightly so it’s hanging over. Sitting on a chair and bending your head over works very well. By doing this, you’re encouraging the blood to flow to your head and are stimulating your hair follicles to encourage the Anagen stage.
A 2012 study published in Anatomy & Cell Biology found that aloe vera gel reduced inflammation and had notable wound-healing effects when used on rats after a surgical incision. Not only did aloe vera promote rapid wound closure, but it also enhanced hair growth at the sight on incision. (13)
Hi Riru, sorry to hear this. I’m afraid I don’t know too many professionals that could help you apart from Belgravia in the UK – http://www.belgraviacentre.com/ – give it a look, they have some interesting information on hair loss that could be of help to you. Best of luck.
If you guys want really thick hair in about 2 months (depending on your hair composition like porosity, texture, and oil levels) I suggest using herbs like rosemary, powdered oak, and nutmeg for oily hair, oils like cactus oil, castor oil, olive oil, and sesame oil for dry hair, and a hair mask of 1 egg white, full onion, and 2 tbs olive oil blended together for normal hair!

According to a research about the effects of stress on your hair , 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.

Hair follicles are highly sensitive to hormones, and vitamin D is a hormone that plays an important role in calcium homeostasis, immune regulation and cell growth differentiation. In the scientific world, it’s well-known that alopecia areata is commonly found in patients with vitamin D deficiency, vitamin D-resistant rickets or vitamin D receptor mutation. (9)
Coconut oil saved my scalp AND my hair! Everybody should try the ingredients and methods this article mentions! I used to have a very itchy scalp and my hair was very dry and brittle, due to the fact that I was on and off the swim team for a good decade, so spending one – two hours in chlorine really showed on my hair, and then of course the Saturday swim meets we had every week, doesn’t really help! I went for a good year (at the end of 2015, up to September 2016) dying my hair all kinds of colors every two months, and this did show as well. My hair also grew very slow due to how unhealthy it was. I started doing coconut oil masks (with yoghurt and honey) once a week (on and off for three months) and my hair has grown close to two inches, in three months! My hair feels sososososo much better ever since I started taking care of it and it has shown! My boyfriend’s mother used to be a hair stylist and she said a couple weeks ago that my hair looks better than ever, and this is only month three of my hair care journey! I plan on getting a perm done hopefully by September of next year, hoping that these treatments can get my hair is top shape before I kill it off again. But yeah, coconut oil is pretty much my safe haven to all my hair problems! Especially the itchy scalp problem. I was AMAZED that my scalp didn’t itch 30 minutes later, the night I put the coconut oil mask in my hair… it hasn’t itched since! (Now given, every now and then it does, but it isn’t a constant pain anymore!) and head massages actually FEEL GOOD to me now. They used to feel weird to me but now I do it every time I get out of the shower. I don’t always do the inversion method, but I do massage my scalp a lot now. I’m surprised I’ve been so committed to getting my hair in top shape, as it takes a lot for me to be committed to anything lol let alone DEDICATED. People do need to try the inversion method, and even just massaging your scalp when you get done showering… I swear I can feel my scalp warm up after a good minute or two of massaging it. That my friend, is magic lol.
Hi there, I’m so sorry to hear you’re feeling this way. Don’t worry, it will grow back! If you do the inversion method just once a month, but you can continue with the rest of the tips. Protein is excellent for healthy hair.
Allow your hair to grow in its natural texture and color. Avoid dyes, highlights and chemical treatments. Any type of chemical applied to your hair will damage it and dry it out. Even natural hair lightening techniques, like using lemon juice, can cause your hair to fray.
my dear friend … mera tum sab se bohot patla hair tha but u know I m using egg in my hairs … abhi tho mere hair mota ho raha hy and I m using halo shampoo Is best shampoo beaz of it my hair fall stop and its growing much … so u call try it dear ….. have a good time to all

Hey guys, thanks for the fantastic tips in this article! I didn’t know prior to the benefits of coconut oil on hair as I found it very sticky and hard to style my hair. It was my mother who would regularly apply this on weekends I guess it was an indian practice but I’m glad that she did and now I know the benefits. I can grow 1-1.5 inches per month. I’m a vegetarian and work-out regularly so this adds on top of all this. I can safely say this DOES WORK and your eating style plays a key role in this. Thanks for sharing these tips!
Soak two to three tablespoons of fenugreek seeds in water for eight to 10 hours. Grind the soaked seeds to make a fine paste. You can also mix two teaspoons of coconut milk in it. Apply the paste on your hair and scalp and allow it to sit for about 30 minutes before washing your hair with lukewarm water. When done weekly on a regular basis, this remedy will prevent dry scalp and help you enjoy thicker hair.

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.
Some of the products are hair growth-stimulating shampoos, and others have a more complicated application process that requires you to sit with the product on your head and allow it to work. Do some research to figure out which is right for your needs.
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.
Adding a fringe to a haircut will not only give it more character, but will also help in removing bulk. By cutting a fringe, (taking hair that normally falls to the sides and have it fall over the forehead) it lessens the hair and bulk on the sides. This beautiful fringe swoops over the forehead beginning at a deep side part.
Hi I like the way ur respond any way I have 3c and 4a type hair from the day if born still I want at least down my shoulder hair I have tried all expect gelatin for a years still my hair is 10 up 12 inch noting change but it’s healthy sometimes it broke I don’t what shampoo I use or condition so I use sulfet free please do u have any idea which kind of hospital they know my problem lol thank u dear
Hi Thahani. We’ve actually never heard of this method before, so can’t speak from personal experience. However it looks like fenugreek seeds would be super nourishing for your hair, so you could give it a go. It definitely won’t do your hair any harm! 🙂
Getting regular trims gives you the appearance of having thicker hair. In the long run, regularly trimming the hair also helps your hair grow healthy from root to tip. This is also among the most amazing tips on how to grow thick hair naturally at home in one month that I would like to share in the entire article today and people should not skip at all costs!
My favorite part of this look is that no texturizing or weight was taken out. We embraced the fullness and simply took the weight out by adding lots of soft layering around the face and long layers through the back.
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!
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.
Anyway, I realize that many men my age or younger suffer from hair loss but I find myself really distraught about how I look and this affects my self confidence and my mood almost on a daily basis. I really would like to know if indeed there is a nutritional regiment that you could develop that I could follow that really would help with my thinning hair.
It’s definitely a color style that looks best on medium to long hair. Balayage always looks best when styled with loose, full-bodied waves. Use a color safe shampoo and conditioner to ensure that your color will last longer. And for those fun beachy waves, I’m a huge fan of all the Amika and Kenra products.
The overall styling is for any woman on the go. By having waves instead of curls, it never looks like it lost its look as it loosens through the day. The layers take out weight and add movement, creating the texture which is all the rage right now!
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.
Closed pores are far less vulnerable than open pores so by washing your hair in cold water you’ll help protect your scalp from dirt, grease and oil. If pores are sealed then your hair is more likely to be stronger and shed less. This one step can make a huge difference.
My advice for someone who is considering this look is to not be deceived by it. It is a classic style that will be easy to maintain and style. It can be customized depending on length and fringe, and both can easily transform this look to match face shape. The color placement is meant to give a natural, sunkissed look that is low maintenance.
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 🙂
For thicker hair, I recommend using a thermal protectant or primer like Bumble and bumble Hairdressers Invisible Oil Primer to help smooth out the cuticle surface. This will add moisture and all the styling products to coat the outside of the hair shaft to allow for a better blow dry.
The lob is really age appropriate for all women, making it a timeless and classic style that has continued to evolve over the last few decades. Versatile, easy hair is a way for women to feel put together and sexy all the time. My ultimate goal is to have everyone leave the salon feeling sexy with hair that they can style and maintain at home!
Hi I had the same problem as you and I have to tell you….you have to stop using shampoo and cut the dead parts of your hair off or little by little cut and inch off every two months. For shampoo, use egg white and yolk but separate them into different bowls first. take an electric beater and beat the egg white until it is extremly foamy and theres almost no liquid left…mostly “bubbles” and then add in the yolk and beat until well blended. massage this into every inch of your hair everyday and if you’re afraid of the smell use a drop of essential oil. for conditioner mix a ratio half conditioner and half raw honey but honestly you dont need conditioner after what I tell you. Also when washing out eggs wash out with ice cold water otherwise eggs will be cooked in the hair. The next treatment is proven to work and should only be done if you have no health problems whatsoever. Heat up oliive oil, coconut oil, or rosemary oil. no other oil will work and massage on scalp and ends until everything is covered in oil but not soaked in oil. dip you head upside down for four minites and then do whatever you want but leave the oil in your hair for 2 hours and then wash it out with the egg. Leave egg mixture on hair until it dries and then rinse out. YOU MUST NOT USE SHAMPOO and also OLIVE OIL TREATMENT EVERYDAY FOR A WEEK. NO LONGER THAN THAT AND THEN AFTER A WEEK OF BREAK REPEAT THE OLIVE OIL. your hair will grow 3-4 inches in a week if done right
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!
Hi Ammaarah, The best thing about hair, is that it almost always grows back, so don’t fret! You have said your hair is dry, so first and foremost I would recommend a coconut oil treatment to renourish it and get it looking and feeling healthy again. Secondly, I would advise the inversion method to encourage hair growth. Do these things, and within a few months your hair should look better than ever! I hope this helps 🙂
So I want to try the inversion method to make my hair grow longer using coconut oil, but what brand is the best to get in coconut oil? I see the brand Palmers and OGX come up a lot, which one should I choose??

Research suggests that insufficient levels of vitamin D have been implicated in a variety of autoimmune diseases, including alopecia areata. A cross-sectional study involving 86 patients with alopecia areata, 44 patients with vitiligo and 58 healthy controls was conducted. Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin vitamin D levels in patients with alopecia areata were significantly lower than those of the patients with vitiligo and the healthy controls. Furthermore, a significant inverse correlation was found between disease severity and serum 25(OH)D levels in patients with alopecia.
More importantly, according to a research about hair benefits of cold water  wash the hair with cold water. In fact, hot water can cause your hair to dry out and become brittle.

As mentioned, i’ve tried all kinds of natural and prescription solutions with minimal results. In addition I suffer from Hashimotos disease which may or may not be playing a part in my hair loss. I currently take levothyroxine daily to cope with this. I’ve always had a suspicion that since taking this drug for the past few years, i’ve lost more hair. It may just be a coincidence in timing.
