Hi Em, I can only recommend the Inversion Method which states you should massage for 7 days every 4 weeks. Scalp massage is always beneficial, but for rapid growth I think you should stick to the 7 days and see how it works for you. Cutting out heat and eating a rich protein diet will certainly help.
Not every time no, Anu. You can alternate the days – one day with oil, one day without and so on. Split ends – prevention is better than cure I’m afraid. Once it’s split longer than 1 cm you can hide the split with serum but it’s best to get regular trims and use a weekly moisturising treatment, avoid heat and so on.
“Obviously, if you have thick hair, regular elastics aren’t going to cut it,” says Santiago. But you also need to stay away from anything with a grip or plastic that will get caught in your massive hair and pull it out. Thin and flat fabric hair ties, like Emi-Jay’s, are going to have more staying power and won’t break or dent your giant hair. “Those fat Heathers-style scrunchies would work too, and I wish they were cool—but they’re not,” says Santiago.
Hello i used a blowdryer and heald it in the wrong place for to long and it got so hot it burnt of a strip of my hair! It is in the front of my head where hair grows slower so i can no longer put my hair up and have to put gel or hairspray in it to keep it from going down everyday which is makeing it grow even slower! What should i do?
The key to a good style starts in the shower. We washed and conditioned with L’Oreal B6 Biotin. We then used Dual Stylers by Techni.art Liss and Pump-up (also by L’Oreal) for volume with a velvety smooth finish. I finished the look with Kevin Murphy Shimmer.Shine and a little hairspray!
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.
My was really good and healthy 3 years ago. with time I started ironing my and using heat a lot so my is thinning its weak and I also feel like its lifeless (although its not). I started growing it by using natural oils and it did work but my hair is naturally oily and it made more oily and greasy but I did not care because it worked but at some point my hair stopped responding to the natural oil treatments and i also tried watching my diet but I think I was doing it wrong. When I see my hair 3 years back it was so healthy it was not oily or greasy it was thick. I hope you can tell me about more treatments!!!
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?
At first, the sting was persistent and vivid, like getting dumped or supporting Arsenal. But over time, I started to kind of enjoy not having any hair, and am now glad it fell off in the first place. Sure, sometimes I look at people like Antonio Banderas and think “Christ, I’d rock the hell out of a slicked-back ponytail look”, but the arduous upkeep of your barnet – styling products, shampoo, conditioner, haircuts, trying to fit it into certain types of hat without looking stupid – far outweigh being able to rock the hell out of a ponytail, or any kind of hairstyle.
Alopecia Areata — Alopecia areata is considered an autoimmune disease in which the immune system mistakenly attacks the hair follicles. The effected hair follicles become small and drastically slow down hair production. Researchers believe that some type of trigger, such as a virus or vitamin deficiency, may bring on the attack.

This article was really helpful for my hair growth. Thanks a lot anushka. Your article was so interesting and I hope you would make more articles like this. This article was very meaningful and I love it! Thanks a lot!
Androgenic alopecia is a genetic condition that can affect both men and women. Men with this condition, called male pattern baldness, can begin suffering hair loss as early as their teens or early 20s. It’s characterized by a receding hairline and gradual disappearance of hair from the crown and frontal scalp. Women with this condition, called female pattern baldness, don’t experience noticeable thinning until their 40s or later. Women experience a general thinning over the entire scalp, with the most extensive hair loss at the crown.
What natural supplement or remedy will lower high blood pressure and also something that really works for constipation I have struggled with this for yrs and cannot find anything that really works for a longer period of time. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Another option is to mix one-quarter cup of warm water in one-half cup of Indian gooseberry powder and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Apply the paste on your hair and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing it off. Do not shampoo your hair for a few hours. Follow this remedy every few weeks.
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.
The color transitions from a darker root to a lighter end which allows for a long time in between coloring services, making it great for the person who can’t get into the salon very often. This look can be created with a light hold styling mousse for body and styled with a 1 1/2-inch barrel curling iron, leaving the ends out for loose lived-in curls that will last for days.
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.
Hi Glo, I’d love to help with this but to be honest I don’t really know too much about hair growth of beards and side burns. Have you tried a quick Google to see what articles you can find on the internet?
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.
If this could be developed into an effective treatment, then it could have a significant impact on those suffering from hair loss, which for many can cause psychological and mental distress. Currently, treatment is very limited, with patients either having to take one of two drugs – minoxidil and finasteride – or go under the knife and get a hair transplant. While the latter is often quite successful, it is obviously quite invasive, while the two drugs often have mixed results.
Hi Gabrielle, Sorry to hear you’re insecure about your hair. To find out if you’re losing hair, you need to go to the doctors or see a specialist. They will look at your scalp for any evidence of this, including bald patches. Most of the time, hair gets thinner towards the ends as it splits. Regular cuts along with hair masks should help with this. I hope this helps 🙂
Telogen Effluvium — Telogen effluvium is the second most common form of hair loss, and it’s characterized as different phases of the hair growth cycle. The telogen phase is when the scalp does not produce hair; it’s also known as the resting phase. Typically, 80 percent to 90 percent of the hair follicles are growing at one time, but with telogen effluvium, the number of hair follicles producing hair drops significantly during the resting phase, resulting in shedding or hair loss.
