Hi Mastuh. We don’t have any experience with Sulfur 8, so can’t advise on this. We prefer other natural methods, such as the inversion method and using coconut oil. Please follow the instructions in the blog post for guidance using the inversion method. I hope this helps 🙂
Hi Lewis! Thanks for joining the discussion. I have a similar problem in that my hair at the back of my head take longer to grow than the front! I would try the inversion method and concentrate on these areas alone so you’ll be boosting the blood flow around the sides. Make sure you measure your hair before and after to see whether it’s worked on not. Remember, massage those sides every day for five minutes for seven days.

Hi there, I am.really struggle to grow. I love very curly hair and would love to grow my hair shoulder length. Please help I don’t blow dry every week. Most time wet it.. Just need a nice bundle of Curls of my own. Thanks
Honey is a great hair conditioner that makes your hair smooth and boosts the health of hair follicles which are responsible for hair growth. Honey is a natural antioxidant and will make your scalp healthy and stimulate hair growth. Also, this ingredient prevents moisture loss from the scalp because of the high sugar content. This leads to prevention of hair fall and hair follicles strength.
Make a mixture of one mashed avocado, one mashed banana and one tablespoon of olive oil. Massage it on your scalp and leave the mixture on your hair for about 30 minutes so that the nutrients are absorbed by the scalp. Finally, rinse it out and shampoo your hair.
A little farther up the follicle is the mysterious feature called the bulge. That’s where follicle stem cells live. When they get the right set of chemical signals, these self-renewing cells divide. They don’t divide like normal cells, in which both halves become new cells that keep splitting and developing. Only one half of the follicle stem cell does that. The other half becomes a new stem cell, and stays put for future regeneration.
This look is very low maintenance. Because of the Balayage highlight technique I used, she can go three to four months without a touch up because it looks so natural! She can blow dry it with a round brush to recreate the style I gave her, or throw some leave-in conditioner and a styling cream in for some natural texture.
Most of the factors that control hair growth are out of our day-to-day control. The best step you can take is to prevent hair loss and thinning due to poor nutrition. Be sure to eat a balanced diet and stay hydrated. Check in with your doctor if you feel that you are experiencing significant hair loss.
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!

Hi Emily, thanks for getting in touch. I would definitely do the inversion method using a scalp massager every 4 weeks. I can’t think of anything more to add to the list, but I like to take in Biotin rich foods through a smoothie in the morning as it’s absorbed by your body at a faster rate. I mix a handful of spinach and kale with half a banana, 1/4 avocado, almonds and brazil nuts. I always make sure I eat a protion of brocolli every other day. Some people recommend pumpkin seed oil for hair growth – I have not tried it myself but many blogger swear by it.
Exercise is good for your hair health in many ways, including thickening the hair and encouraging the hair growth. It works to increase circulation to the hair scalp, which mainly takes responsibility for hair growth. So, aim at exercising a couple of times a week to get the best results.

“Two-thirds of men do get acceptable hair growth — moderate to very good hair growth,” Andrew Kaufman, MD, tells WebMD. Kaufman, a hair-transplant surgeon, is assistant professor of clinical dermatology at UCLA, and medical director of the Center for Dermatology Care, Thousand Oaks, Calif.
Hi Dr Moore. Thanks a lot for getting in touch. Your hair sounds absolutely amazing – it’s what many of us dream of having! We’d be very interested in seeing the results once you’ve finished – please do send them in! Thanks a lot 🙂
Keratin-based products fill out the hair cuticle and defrizz, says Santiago. She likes Sally Hershberger Hyper Hydration Super Keratin Spray for year-round use, plus a little extra styling time in summer. “I know that’s when everyone wants the ease of wash-and-go styles, but for women with thick hair, it’s worth taking the time to really work in the product to avoid a bad hair day.”
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.
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?
I have tried everything to make my hair grow faster for the past 5 years now, I know it takes patience but everything I try damages and dries it out. I’m uneducated about hair care and I could really use the help because I miss my long locks, anything I can do to speed up the process a little, I heard hemp oil and argan oil are good oils for your hair but I want to help my hair without going extravagant in price
if washing would be the reason then let me explain i hope u wud be washing ur face everyday why dont your eyebrows or eyelashes start falling very badly. applying egg is height of stupidity. the only solution is start eating proteinaceous things. hairs do not have pores through egg or other thing can enter and heal them.
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
Hey there, dandruff and an unhealthy scalp could be contributing to your hair problems. I would start with trying to get rid of the dandruff, there are quite a few over-the-counter treatments or you could find a natural remedy (apple cider vinegar perhaps?) to help. It’s really important to maintain a healthy scalp so I would recommend doing this, cutting back on how many times you wash your hair as if you wash it more frequently it could make the problem worse. Try a little head massage every few days too, drink plenty of water and a healthy balanced diet with plenty of protein. It may take time, but hopefully, you will start to see an improvement – let me know how you get on!
Hi Ruby, I’m afraid I can’t guarantee the rapid hair growth as everyone is different but from my personal experience I managed to grow my hair 1 inch in a week when I did all the above tips. Please give it a go and be sure to measure a section of your hair before and after. Good luck!
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.
I shaved my head this time last year and had about 8 inches of growth from that time. Growing fast is totally an issue for me but also once I grow it out the bottom 3 inches or so are dead. And I mean D.E.A.D. frizzy, white nasty dead ends. What the heck causes that and what do I do?
mix 2 egg yolk with 1tsp honey and amla oil or Castor oil, or live oil, apply to your hair and scalp and massage it everywhere put a plastic cap and sit under a hair steamer, and leave the mixture on your head as long as you can, then Shampoo.
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

“Look, I always say, nobody has ever died from baldness. Nobody needs to treat it. But the men who come to us, they have many reasons for wanting to do so. And it’s almost never simply vanity or image. In most cases, they’ll tell us that they are doing it for the man they see in the mirror”.
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 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 🙂
Hi Smita, Great to hear you are going to try the inversion method, let me know how it goes and don’t forget to measure it before and after. I don’t have any pics but I am definitely going to take some the next time I do the inversion method and add them to this post. I also get a lot of hair loss, try massaging very lightly and reduce the amount of times you wash your hair every week. Perhaps try washing your hair every 2 days?
What it does: The easy-to-ingest powder supplement contains everything hair loves—keratin (the protein that makes up your strands), biotin, and vitamins and minerals—to promote shine, strength, and healthy growth and help reduce shedding.
Not quite! Vitamin A is important and supports your overall health, which can influence the health of your hair, but it hasn’t been shown to directly influence hair thickness or growth. There’s a better option out there!
The range of treatments and therapies available to combat hair loss has increased dramatically in the past 10 years, from natural-look prosthetics to hair-thickening sprays and the transplants, which can cost between €10k and €20k.
But through everything I learned, Lemon truly does help with hair growth. I can’t even describe it with the proper words it deserves. It leaves that soft, shining texture and color. it allows your hair to look free.. and… Just see for yourself, will you? And personally, i believe that one-day-over-ripe-day is the best way (:
Hi, i am Neha. I am very depressed by my hair health. When i was in school i had thick and long locks, but my hairs have come to its half thickness. Please let me know some tips which can help me gain my hairs back. Please help me.
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.
“People may still think of the wigs they would have seen in the 1970s or 1980s, very heavy, unnatural looking, more like an item of clothing. The latest systems are nothing like that at all,” says Jessica.
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
