Comprised mainly of smaller medium-chain fatty acids, the oil is also able to penetrate more deeply and faster than most other conditioners, and because it’s 100% natural you can use it as much as you like without any damage.
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.
It will all depend on preference and what your needs are. Egg is great for hair but is also drying, so if you have drier hair you’ll want more oil to water, but less than egg. If you have oily hair use more water to oil, but again, less than the amount you have in egg. I’d say use a tablespoon at a time and perhaps try a 1:2 or if you have longer hair 2:4/4:8 etc.
Autoimmune disease may cause alopecia areata. In alopecia areata, the immune system revs up for unknown reasons and affects the hair follicles. In most people with alopecia areata, the hair grows back, although it may temporarily be very fine and possibly a lighter color before normal coloration and thickness return.
Due to hair makeup activities, I have done years of damage to my hair. I thought i should take care some steps to improve my hairs. After googling in internet, i came to know about Nuhairrx serum. I spend one full day to read the reviews about this product and decided to use this product. After using few months, i feel very happy with the result. If you’re curious about the method I used, you can check it out yourself.
Most chemotherapy drugs work by attacking fast-replicating cells. Rapid cell replication is one of the hallmarks of cancer; however, hair follicle cells also grow and divide quickly. Consequently, the chemotherapy drugs usually inhibit hair growth. The dose and type of medicine determine the severity of hair loss, but once the chemotherapy has ended, new hair growth may begin after three to 10 weeks.
I recommend this look for anyone with naturally wavy and thick hair that needs some sort of style. It removes weight while adding movement and texture to any hairstyle. It also looks great with it pulled back, keeping a few layered pieces down and around your face. You will always have a cute style even while wearing it up!
“Your hairstylist has to have really good thinning shears to not cause damage,” says Santiago. Tell your stylist how your hair has reacted to thinning shears or razors in the past. Shears aren’t the devil, but if you’re prone to frizz, they’ll work best for you if used only on the ends of your hair. Your stylist can use a different method to thin out your hair that doesn’t scrape your hair shaft as much.
The sides and the back of this haircut are cut really short and tight. The top is left long, layered and disconnected from the rest of the haircut. The very front of the top layer is a short fringe and longer pieces of the hair on top lay over it for a chic and interesting finish.
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.
I would describe this look as a subtle, balayage highlighted bob. This guest had a very dark natural base, so my favorite part is that I was able to give her some dimension and lightness without taking away from her beautiful dark hair.
Ever since I was a teenager I’ve been some what follically changed with a very sluggish hair growth cycle. This is caused by a combination of genetics, over-styling and a low iron count, and my hair can go through phases of struggling to grow new hair so it needs a helping hand every now and then.

Hi Alice. WOW! We can’t believe how long your hair is – you sound almost like Rapunzel. The inversion method really is amazing, if you’re prepared to put the effort in – and it sounds like you are. Great stuff, keep up the good work 🙂
This is the single most informative piece on hair loss I’ve ever found, and I’ve searched for lots! Dr. Axe, you give me hope. I had luxurious hair as a child, but, that all ended at puberty. Still, I didn’t have extremely thin hair, just thinner. The thinning progressed steadily, though, until I became pregnant. Then, suddenly, I had my childhood hair back! Until, that is, I gave birth, when all the new growth disappeared with a vengeance. I’m 67 now, and have a great deal of difficulty covering the thin entire crown of my head. This, in spite of my holistic doctor’s efforts with bio identical hormones, over the last three years! I also take supplements, but, too sporadically. That will change! To add insult to injury, my husband also started the bio identical hormones, just two months ago, and although he was never bothered by his baldness, has much new growth! Thank you for this enlightening information, it is my best hope.

This is true. I only recently started to use oils on my hair and used to had dandruff -not any more! my hair where unmanageable but seem to be much better now. In use combinations of castor, almond, olive and coconut oil used them for both hair face and body in different way and I am in LOVE with oils.
“Learning about your hair texture is so critical because then you can determine exactly what products you need for your hair,” explains celebrity hairstylist Vernon François, who works with Lupita Nyong’o. “This will inevitably lead you down the path to experiencing the best response from the products you use.”
In addition, I established a beauty regimen that focused on best hair practices and I followed it faithfully for nine whole months. To my delight, not only did I speed up the growth process by a few inches, but I also improved the appearance of my hair from all aspects but specifically its health and feel.
The three stages of hair growth are the anagen, catagen, and telogen phases. Each strand of hair on the human body is at its own stage of development. Once the cycle is complete, it restarts and a new strand of hair begins to form. The rate or speed of hair growth is about 1.25 centimetres or 0.5 inches per month, or about 15 centimetres or 6 inches per year.
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 you want to repair split ends and hair fall, you can use a deep-conditioning method. Aside from speeding up the hair growth, your hair will become much softer. You can buy once at any local store or use mayonnaise. Simply, apply some the conditioning one into the hair and allow it to soak for about 20-30 minutes. Wash it off as usual with cold water. Repeat this method once a month.
“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.
Can avocado oil strengthen my hair? Oils play an important role in the health of a person’s hair. Avocado oil may have specific benefits due to its vitamin and mineral composition. When the hair’s natural oil balance is uneven, or the environment has damaged the hair, using oils on the scalp or hair may moisturize it and prevent further damage. Read now
“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. ”
Aloe vera has also been reported to have a protective effect against radiation damage to the skin, which can lead to hair loss. Following the administration of aloe vera gel, an antioxidant protein called metallothionein is generated in the skin, which scavenges free radicals and prevents UV-induced suppression. (14)
You can buy grass-fed gelatin as a supplement that can be added to hot and room temperature drinks. Great Lakes have an affordable range and can be bought from Amazon. Simply add a teaspoon to your morning tea or coffee.
In Chinese medicine hair growth is related to a healthy liver and kidneys. The herb that is traditionally prescribed for hair growth is called He Shou Wu. During my program, I added it to my smoothies. I also started every morning with a cup of warm water, half a lemon, and liquid artichoke extract, which I found at the health food store, which is said to detoxify the liver.
Hi Anushka…. Firstly, I’d say a big thanks to you, for stating it all out as detailed and simplified as possible. More so, I’ll just add that from the hundreds of comments here, I’ve deduced that you seem to really be so positive about the efficacy of THE INVERSION METHOD, and for something which you’ve clearly stated that you’re overly uncertain of it’s outcome for each individual, I’d say,making it your number one go-to recommendation in all your replies seems rather Not-So-Encouraging and less than ideal. Nevertheles,I’m a man, though born in Atlanta,GA, I do have a deep Nigerian heritage,I’m talking both parents deep… So yeah,git the short,black curly hair and all that sstuff… After 4months,t’s currently in a semi-afro state, but I wish to make it grow longer, like so much…. So, fingers crossed, I’m really routing on these solutions working for me as wella…. Giving it a shot….taking a full go at it.
At any one time, about 90% of the hair on a person’s scalp is growing. Each follicle has its own life cycle that can be influenced by age, disease, and a wide variety of other factors. This life cycle is divided into three phases:
I read your 6 vitamin for hair growth. My age is 26. My hair is very thin. I go to doctor and doctor suggest me my problem is cronical alopecia. And this problem can not over come. I am very much up set. Day to day my hair is totally lost. My scalp is showing to every body. I very much tenced. My hair is only fall but not growth. Please help me doctor.
Indian Amla oil is sold under many brand names. You can order it from Amazon and its not very expensive. In order to see which brand is the best, you can read the reviews on google. Hope that’s helpful..
I just got my hair cut to around mid-back but before that I had waist length hair. I really miss my long hair and want to know how well the inversion-with-coconut-oil method works. I’m hoping by the end of this month my hair will be back to it’s original length. Is it possible for it to all grow back in a month? (I just started the inversion method)
Demodex folliculorum is a mite that lives on the face. For most people, their presence is harmless. However, in larger numbers, they can cause skin problems. This is more likely in people with certain skin conditions or weakened immune systems. We look at the causes, symptoms, and treatments of Demodex folliculorum.
Like the cure for cancer, those new treatments aren’t nearly ready for prime time. But they’re coming, promises George Cotsarelis, MD, director of the Hair and Scalp Clinic at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.

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.
