1-4 drops of Rosemary Essential Oil in coconut oil and rub on scalp 20 minutes before shampooing. Or 1-2 drops Rosemary Essential Oil into a handful of shampoo and shampoo as usual.Do a 15 minute test of Rosemary on your forearm to see if you have an allergy.
This haircut is shorter on the sides and in the back. The back is shortest at the nape and gradually gets longer towards the crown, giving the crown area beautiful volume. It is layered on top, shorter in the back, and longer in the front.
Hi Jennie, really sorry to hear about your experience. It can be terribly upsetting, but I would use a moisturising hair mask every week to get it back to good health. Make sure you eat a good healthy diet (you can find details in the article) and use just lukewarm water to wash your hair. I wouldn’t recommend hair massage if your hair is falling out at the moment, when it has had time to recover you can try a gentle scalp massage in the shower when you’re shampooing – that would be a good start. I hope this helps, but if you’re at all worried please visit your nearest hair salon to seek professional advice.
I have a pixie cut and I’m getting tired of it, I just want my hair back ( at least to shoulder length ) before Christmas ( thanksgiving even! ) is there any ( cheap) way I could grow it out FAST? I’m in 7th grade and really don’t want a LONG awkward stage of growing out my hair. I know it will look akward at some points but if you could help me shorten that time that would be GREAT!!!
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?
The best way to get thick hair is to apply 10-20 drops of almond or coconut oil daily. Wash your hair 2-3 times a week and never use heated styling tools like blow dryers or straighteners. Boost hair growth by cutting off dead ends.
Hi Mal, thanks for getting in touch! Getting regular trims are essential for healthy hair growth, plus if your hair is dry and split ended then it’ll only appear shorter even if it is growing. I would get a trim about 1-2 inches to tidy up your ends then use a moisturising oil on your hair every week. Are you using hot tools and how often are you washing your hair?
Loved your article on hair loss. Have ten year old daughter-cancer pt who has been cancer free/off treatment for 3 years. Chemo /radiation has destroyed growth and any new hair growth.mostly bald for years now. How would you offer the above in child dosing? She takes omega3 and vitamin d along with multi and probiotic and eats well.
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?
According to a research about the effects of stress on your hair [2], stress can be one of the main causes of hair loss.

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.
Hi Suzanne! Thanks for your comments, I’ve had a short hair cut and while it was a nice change I did find it incredibly hard to manage! I am a big fan of oils, in general, to be honest, I agree cold pressed castor oil is fantastic for eyelashes and hair but in my personal experience I didn’t find that it worked better or less than coconut or olive oil. But, having said that I do know people who swear by it. I would say it’s not an exact science so whichever you prefer and works for you. I like to get mini bottles wherever possible and figure out what works for me.
Anagen. The growth phase of hair. An unknown signal tells follicle stem cells to do their thing. Next, the permanent part of the follicle — the dermal papilla — gives the “go” signal to hair matrix cells. Those cells grow wildly and become pigmented, creating a new hair shaft. At any given time, 90% of hair cells are in this stage.
Female Pattern Hair Loss — Female pattern hair loss or baldness occurs when hair follicles shrink over time. Typically, each time a normal hair follicle is shed, it’s then replaced by hair that’s equal in size. For women with female pattern hair loss, the new hair is finer and thinner. The hair follicles start by shrinking in this way, and eventually they quit growing altogether. This can be caused by aging, changes in androgen (male hormone) levels, or a family history of male or female pattern baldness. (18, 19)
Hi Johanna, thanks for your question. Do you mean your middle parting is growing slowly? Have you found the parting is getting bigger? It sounds like you may have some slow hair growth, give the tips in the article a go. I wouldn’t suggest cutting your hair again unless you prefer it to be shorter.
Sangeetha… I have fine blond hair. I have tried 100’s of products. Some hairdressers over process. (if you ask for a weave, ask for 5 foils, not a partial or full weave) avoid over processing. And, do not use that hot flat iron on your hair.
In my experience egg is pretty much a shampoo and I wouldn’t reccomend using shampoo. I’d recommend rinsing your egg filled hair in cold water and using conditioner after for fragrance. I personally don’t get a bad egg smell when I use no shampoo and just conditioner. Also when using oil I like to oil it over night then wash using an egg or two. Then condition, no shampooing. Shampoo is bad for your hair
Thin hair may come with age, and while there is nothing you can do to prevent aging, there are ways to promote naturally thicker hair. Nature has given us everything we need to promote naturally vibrant health and there are many methods that will promote hair growth and increase volume. If you’ve got thin hair, or your hair’s just not as thick as it once was trying any of the following home remedies will promote thicker hair and leave you feeling your best.
Didn’t we tell you to be careful of layers? They can hurt as much as they help. Case in point: In an attempt to take out some of your massive hair’s weight and girth, a stylist chomped at your locks with one of these tools, leaving them frizzier and damaged.
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!
My hair use to be really long and pretty.. i haven’t gotten it cut or anything. It’s shorter, it breaks off and everyone thinks I got a hair cut. I did the coconut oil treatment for a month but it didn’t work for my hair.I took Biotin tablets and they didn’t really work either. I want my hair to be long again but i’m not sure what to do.
In most people, scalp hair growth will halt due to follicle devitalization after reaching a length of generally two or three feet. Exceptions to this rule can be observed in individuals with hair development abnormalities, which may cause an unusual length of hair growth.
At age 50, I get constant comments on my thick, long, shiny hair. You can see my photos on Facebook if you keyword laurel leigh anderson. My hair became thicker, shinier and grew faster when I went on a High Fat Low Carb Ketogenic diet with low starch, and no sugar. (Keyword “Dr. Eric Westman HFLC” on youtube to learn details.) I went on this diet to lose weight, and I lost 44 lbs. but at the same time, something changed regarding the suddenly much faster, thicker hair growth. It was a noticeable but welcome side effect. If you think about it, it makes sense. Hair is made of keratin which is protein and it becomes shiny and well moisturized because of nutritional fats and oils in the diet. Eating a bunch of sugar, and starchy carbs is not helpful to thick, shiny hair. Overconsumption of carbs leads to diabetes which causes hair loss. If you want your hair to grow, you need protein, oils and fats. Hair is damaged by heat from blow drying and hot irons and the natural oils are stripped out by soaps, surfactants and detergents. I also suggest brushing very very gently, starting at the tips and working back upwards to the scalp with a wide tooth hair pick, and do not brush 100 strokes at bed time or anything like that. I also suggest staying away from chemicals, perms, relaxers and weaves. Do not use cheap rubber bands, do not rip chop pull or tug, do not let the beautician “thin” your hair with shears, nor chop and cut. Instead, just give the beauty shop a rest while you focus on your nutritional status at home. If you see a woman with thinning hair, and you talk to her you will soon learn that they are typically type II diabetic and or “insulin resistant.” Men are a different tale because they may simply have male pattern baldness, but in woman there is one main cause for hair loss: diabetes. Many of these hair loss woman are typically overweight yet malnourished, with a non dewey, haggard and worn looking complexion. If you carefully observe such an overweight woman with thinning hair, you will see them eating candy, drinking soft drinks, eating potatoes, french fries, pasta, rice, breads, parties, chips, so on and so forth. The overwhelming carbohydrate load leads to all her problems: her obesity, her diabetes, her malnutrition, and her hair loss. Supplements I recommend for hair growth include Biotin, MCT oil, Multi B Complex vitamins and Omega 3 and D-3. I also don’t think washing the hair a whole lot is a great plan because strip the oils, and dries it out. Washing daily won’t really help the hair to grow, but if you must wash it, just sparingly soap the crown, and do it every second or third day. Personally, I like the “Agadir Argan Oil Shampoo, Conditioner and most of all the Spray Treatment to add shine and hydrate. Some people recommend coconut oil, but natural coconut oil becomes a solid mass at 74 degrees Fahrenheit. If you buy coconut oil, get fractionated coconut oil, so it will pour from the bottle as a liquid. I sometimes do use that, but I prefer Argan oil from Morocco, which I purchase cheaply in bulk. The least expensive is “Dr Adorable” purchased online from Amazon. All the supplements and vitamins I buy for myself are for sale on Amazon.com because I don’t have a car, so I have it all delivered in a box, to my door, with two day shipping.

In fact, there’s about a hundred different great benefits of using fish oil or cod liver oil.The truth is that your internal health can appear on your skin, and if you take fish oil internally as a supplement, it may be as good as or better than applying conventional moisturizers. Therefore, I recommend that you take about one tablespoon a day of cod liver oil or fish oil — in between 1,000–3,000 milligrams a day would be sufficient.
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!
Hi Lamont. Wow, it sounds like you have been doing all the right things and achieved some really fantastic results by doing so! We’re so glad to hear you’ve found a solution that really works for your hair. Please do keep us updated – we love hearing hair-success stories!
Adopting the ayurvedic beauty practice of Bhringraj oil could be beneficial, too. Bhringraj is oil made of Eclipta Alba and sesame, which can be bought at an Indian store or can also be made at home. Eclipta Alba has been used for centuries and in studies has been shown to be an effective growth promoter.

Hi Taylor. I would say, from personal experience, the inversion method is the most effective for hair GROWTH. If you want to maintain your hair health and growth, I would advise a coconut oil treatment too as it nourishes the hair and keeps it healthy. I hope this helps 🙂
So can you almost garuntee that the methods will make my hair grow. Fast. I would like my hair to grow longer and i haven’t really found anything. But the oil massage seems interesting. And about how long do you think my hair would grow using your methods, and about how long will it take?
Hi Anushka, thanks for this article. I’ve had a really good read through and I’m currently waiting for my jelly to set in the fridge (any excuse to eat my favourite dessert) after using the inversion method with coconut oil. My hair is incredibly thick and there is lots and lots of it, my issue is that it grows out and not down! So frustrating! I’m getting married in December and I’m trying to grow out my hair for the big day. My 20 year old daughter (who has beautiful long, blonde hair) and my fiancé (who is folicley challenged) think I will get it cut before the day. I really want to prove them wrong so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this works xxxx
Anushka….i owned a Holistic Health Center in Naples, Florida and was recommending Silica for hair and nails over 20 years ago…maybe 30! I will be 60 years old this year and still have hair to mid back. I am going to try coconut oil ON HAIR. I have been using it for other purposes for years but trying massage and coconut oil….will let you know results. Will be charting results and taking pics!
Hi E.H. The inversion method can dramatically increase the rate of hair growth, however, results vary from person to person. I’d say it will take a few months at least to grow your hair back, but it would take much longer without the inversion method! Good luck 🙂
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.
