Hello, I just found your blog and was interested in your thoughts. My hair seems grows pretty fast, I’ve had it short for the past 4 years and the cut usually gets messy after about 8 weeks. This drives me nuts, previously I always had long hair and found it easier to manage. Now I want to grow it out quickly and I’ve noted your comments on coconut, argon and olive oils but was curious as I’ve seen no one mention cold pressed castor oil. I’ve found this fantastic for my eyelashes and started using it for its rejuvenating and growing properties. I would have thought the properties in it that are useful for lashes ie the nutrients and folicle stimulation would work the same with hair. The cold pressed castor oil seems to be valued higher for eyelash growth than the other three oils that are mentioned here for hair. Just wondering, lol, discuss.
Avoid chemical based shampoo, conditioner and styling products. Most hair products contain chemicals that are effective at cleaning your hair but may cause much damage. Some people aren’t affected by these chemicals, but if you’re worried about thinning hair, it’s best to avoid them.

Fewer than 45 percent of women go through life with a full head of hair while a majority of men go through some type of hair loss in their lifetimes. The hair care industry knows that consumers have a great desire to look youthful now more than ever so it constantly delivers new products that promise to promote hair growth. Before you spend your money on yet another product that may leave you disappointed, try using these vitamins for hair growth (or hair vitamins as I sometimes call them) first.
The range includes a Hair Treatment, Shampoo, Conditioner and Leave-In Conditioner. All contain their unique ‘Pro-Growth’ Complex which contains a protein-based complex that helps fertilise your hair follicles and encourages new growth as well as anchoring your existing hair to your scalp – new hair growth and less hair loss – win, win.

Science has discovered a little bit about how hair growth is controlled at the cellular level in the body, but not enough to know how we can directly speed up hair growth. Read on to learn about the science behind hair growth and how to use that knowledge for healthier hair.
Why is this pattern of hair loss only in the front and on top? That’s where hormone-sensitive follicles live. The follicles on the sides and back of the head aren’t affected by DHT and usually stay healthy.
Hi Ray, sorry to hear that! I also cut my hair into a pixie style, don’t worry it will grow quicker than you think. For the awkward stage I can only suggest lots and lots of clips! Please follow the tips in the article, hopefully you’ll see a difference.
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. 🙂
I desperately need help. I need to grow out my hair in three weeks for an event and I have tried these methods but they do not seem to be working for my hair (my hair hair is African, soft and natural). The coconut oil is working but it works so slowly on my hair, and it will take about two months to grow it out how I want at the rate it is growing. Please me with tips, hacks, tricks. Anything. And I cut my hair for another event one time so that also contributes to the slow hair growth. Please help, I really need to be there for the event!!!
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!
Hair is considered to be a major component of an individual’s general appearance, and the psychological impact of hair loss results in detrimental changes in self-esteem and self-worth. It also affects a large number of people, as 50 percent of men are affected by genetic hair loss by the age of 50. In women, the major cause of hair loss before the age of 50 is nutritional, with 30 percent affected. The main cause of hair loss for women appears to be depleted iron stores, but corrections of these imbalances can stop the excessive hair loss within a few months. (15)
The truth is that hair loss is a complex process that involves various genetic, hormonal and environmental mechanisms. Just like our skin, the hair follicle is subject to intrinsic and extrinsic aging. Intrinsic factors include our genetic and epigenetic mechanisms, and extrinsic factors include smoking and UV radiation.

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.
“Hair cloning is something this has been called, but we are not real keen on the word cloning. We are not creating a whole new organism, but it is a duplication process. … We are taking follicular stem cells — cells that have capacity of creating new follicle — and packaging them into follicle-inducing implants. ”
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?
I also remind my guests that this type of double process service must be done slowly and that they must commit to using Aveda’s Damage Remedy line at home to ensure the hair is at its healthiest. Healthy hair enables my guests to change their hair color more often.
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
People have always asked me how I end up having such long hair in such a short span of time. Well, I wish I could say it was plain genetics, but honestly, it is more about this little oil and aloe vera treatment mixed with some vitamin E, castor oil and coconut oil. I learn this method and massage treatment from mom at a very young age, and I have to say that this is one of the biggest reasons why my hair is the way it is today! As an Indian I have learnt lots of ancient Indian hair care secrets from the previous generations, and this one is one of my favorites in my whole routine. Hence this tutorial today, hope you like it!
When you want to thicken hair, there are also a couple of supplements that will help. Cod liver oil (I get mine from Oceans 3) is highly recommended because it’s chock-full of omega-3’s, including EPA and DHA, that help thicken your hair, improve your skin and even naturally balance hormones. The deficiency of EPA and DHA in diet contributes to skin conditions such as dandruff, thinning hair, eczema and psoriasis, as well as age spots and sun spots. Simply put, without the essential fatty acids, too much moisture leaves the skin.
Telogen – Also known as the resting phase. The follicle remains dormant and the hair will be anchored in place. Depending on the strength of the follicle, it will eventually soften and the hair will eventually break free and shed.
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?
Hi Anushka, I had long hair due to bad cut it become medium hair. I have my marriage in 3 months. before i want to get my hair back. i am going to try your method. lets hope for the best. thank You for your article.
It is truly shocking just how many people skipped reading the article and just went straight to the comments to ask what advice there was to help them grow their hair. I have to wonder if they are just that lazy or did they assume the better recommendations were being withheld for some reason (which would be a ridiculous thing to do) and the article just gave generic advice? Did they imagine the writer saved the best advice for themselves but it would then be shared if asked about it in a comment? The article and all the comments took me just over 6 minutes to read so it’s no wonder that the school system is being criticized and that there is a definate lag behind other countries when it comes to education. It’s crazy. Have a great day!
The team first set about trying to figure out the molecular mechanism of the drug, before then carrying out a full gene expression analysis of individual human hair follicles, donated by people undergoing hair transplants, which had been treated with CsA. They were able to show that the drug inhibited a particular gene, SFRP1, which has in previous studies been shown to inhibit the growth of tissues, most crucially including hair follicles.
Thick hair is something more people would like to have. Whether your hair is long or short, having thick hair just seems to look better. Your hair may be thin depending on a number of reasons, but there is no reason why you can’t get thicker hair naturally. Climate is a big reason people have different thicknesses of hair. In colder climate hair tends to be thinner, while in warmer regions hair is often thicker.
For this cut, I used Kevin Murphy Body Mass to blow out while using the large Varis round brush. We finished with Kevin Murphy Bedroom.Hair for some extra texture. I recommend getting a trim every eight weeks to maintain the bounce in the layers.
