“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.”
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 🙂
Hair is made up of keratin and dead skin cells. While there’s no direct method to make your hair grow faster overnight, there are steps you can take to keep your hair healthy and long. Talk to your doctor before trying supplements such as biotin, keratin, or other nutritional supplements. They may interact with medications and cause unintended side effects.
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?
Hi I am samjhana. I hav a big problem with my hair. My hair is so curly like I hav made it in the parlour but its real. My hair is so fizzy. There is too much hairfall and it doesn’t grow. 2 yrs ago I hav shoulder length hair then I cut it to thaicut hair. At the year end it became shoulder length but from then, I hav been waiting for 2 yrs but it doesn’t grow even 1cm.I hav tried many hair products suggested by many parlourists but nothing happened can u suggest me anything that works?
My advice for someone who is considering this look is to not be deceived by it. It is a classic style that will be easy to maintain and style. It can be customized depending on length and fringe, and both can easily transform this look to match face shape. The color placement is meant to give a natural, sunkissed look that is low maintenance.
“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. ”
Thick hair looks luxe long and is great for a pixie, where a stylist has a lot to work with. But that of-the-moment choppy bob? Not so much. “Thick hair that’s shoulder-length can very easily get big,” says Santiago.
Everyone’s body is different, but most people should be able to comfortably wash their hair two to three times a week without it getting too oily. If your hair is naturally quite oily, you might want to wash it three to four times a week instead.
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.
Isn’t true that Biotin makes B5 absorption close to impossible? So taking a B Complex vitamin ensures that you get neither enough biotin, nor Vitamin B5, because they are mutually exclusive in terms of absorption.
Some of the common factors contributing to thinning hair are excessive physical or emotional stress, hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, pollution, allergies, use of wrong hair care products, poor hair care routine, and heredity.
For this client, we balayaged caramel pieces around her face then gave her lots of layers blending down from the fringe. For styling, we used a smoothing cream to help blow dry and control frizz and added Unite’s Boosta Spray for a little body while blow drying. I then went back in with Unite’s Argan Oil to smooth any flyaways and gave her a loose beachy wave. We finished with a spray wax to tousle and give that lived-in look.
Researchers at Tehran University of Medical Sciences in Iran studied the relationship between iron body status and different types of hair loss. They conducted an analytical case-control study to assess whether diffuse telogen hair loss in women between the ages of 15 and 45 is associated with iron deficiency — 30 women with documented telogen hair loss were compared with 30 women without hair loss.
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 also have done hair smoothing because my hair was very curly and very short (about 9inch only ) but doing a proper haircare and these remedies help me to grow my hair faster(now my hair is35inch long)
Follicles are a mammalian skin organ and along with stem cells, they help produce and grow hair. Your hair begins to grow from the root in the bottom of the follicle which is made up of cells of protein.

Studies show that women with an iron deficiency are at a higher risk of hair loss, and serum ferritin levels below or equal to 30 milligrams/milliliter are strongly associated with telogen hair loss. Low serum zinc levels have also been linked to alopecia areata cases.
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.

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!
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.
Another option is to mix together one egg yolk, one tablespoon of a hair oil of your choice and two tablespoons of water. Use this mixture to massage your scalp thoroughly. Follow this remedy once a week to enjoy thicker hair.
Until then, one other great way to treat baldness is to embrace it, and choose the shaved head look. Research suggests this strategy could score you some serious street cred: people tend to assess smooth-headed baldies as both stronger and taller than their hair-brained counterparts.

Great! I can’t wait to use these new tips! Will get back to you with result! Just gave birth 7 months ago and 2 months ago after stopping breastfeeding my hair stop faking like crazy witch is normal they say, it’s hormonal!

Some of the products are hair growth-stimulating shampoos, and others have a more complicated application process that requires you to sit with the product on your head and allow it to work. Do some research to figure out which is right for your needs.
Oral zinc compounds have been used for decades for treating disorders such as telogen effluvium and alopecia areata, forms of hair loss, because zinc benefits hair follicle health. Zinc is an essential co-factor for multiple enzymes and is involved with important functional activities in the hair follicle. Zinc is also a potent inhibitor of hair follicle regression, and it accelerates hair follicle recovery. Studies suggest that some alopecia areata patients have zinc deficiency, and oral zinc sulfate therapy serves as an effective treatment.
Hi Deepti, congratulations on your wedding! I’m sorry to hear about your hair loss, in this case I think it’s best to follow the doctor’s prescribed treatment. You might like to try gentle scalp massage but be careful not to encourage more hair loss. Coconut oil is fantastic for strengthening too. How about eating lots of protein rich foods?
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.
Also u have castor oil grapesead oil all accesable and inexpensive fotlrgot to say u dont have to buy top grade coconut oil its expensive plus lot of enzyms removed through filtering funny thing cheaper oils are better as long as pure if u lucky enough to have access to unrefined x
To boost hair growth, add iron-rich foods into your diet every day. Eat plenty of spinach, Swiss chard, collard greens, egg yolks, beef steak, navy beans and black beans. Because an iron deficiency may lead to hair loss, ensure that you get your daily recommended amount by eating plenty of iron-rich foods and taking a daily multivitamin.
Biotin and pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) have been used as alternative treatments for hair loss. Biotin benefits your hair by rebuilding hair shingles that have been damaged from over-shampooing, exposure to the sun, blow-drying and ironing. Vitamin B5 supports the adrenal glands, which helps stimulate hair growth.
Hi Emma. Unfortunately, these are baby hairs. I too have bad ones at the front and despite everything I’ve tried, they won’t seem to grow or go! My best suggestion is using hairspray/other products to keep them neatly in place. I’ve found using a volumizing mousse before blow-drying off my forehead seems to work best.
Hi there, Really keen to try your recipe for longer hair! Just wanted to ask with regards to the massage for 5min for 7 days (no longer no less) …. is this on a fortnightly basis, monthly? Look for to your response.
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 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
Aloe vera has nourishing properties and tons of vitamins and minerals that help to keep your hair strong and healthy. Aloe vera benefits have been known for centuries because of aloe vera contains health, beauty, medicinal and skin care properties. It soothes and conditions the scalp, providing the ideal environment for hair growth.
I totally agree Camilla! I’m a big advocate of nourishing your hair from the insides, too. I load up on eggs, almonds, spinach and broccoli when my hair is not feeling it’s best, and the difference is astounding! Thanks for sharing your tips, love Flaxseed.
Hi there, thank you for your comment. I would suggest you miss out the biotin and coconut oil if you are worried about either of those. If you do the inversion method with no oil! Good luck, I hope it works for you.

Secondly, I learned to carefully read the labels when purchasing shampoos, conditioners, and styling products—making sure ingredients are chemical-free and made without soap agents or perfumes. These can play a role in inflammation and produce excessive sebum, which clogs the pores on the scalp and suffocates the hair follicle.
Usually, patients can see it start working in 6 to 8 months, but it can also decrease sex drive, increase breast size, and contribute to erectile dysfunction, according to Merck Manuals. It’s also dangerous for pregnant women to touch the crumbly pill powder.
The discovery that CsA could potentially offer a fourth solution is exciting. “Clearly though, a clinical trial is required next to tell us whether this drug or similar compounds are both effective and safe in hair loss patients,” Dr Hawkshaw pointed out. But for people who suffer from hair loss, knowing new avenues are opening to explore a remedy will be a relief.
I always think it’s important to start with a good foundation in your products and build from there. I love using LOréal Professional Sleek and Swing on all of my styles to protect against heat and smooth the hair, all while building volume. It leaves the hair bouncy and shiny!
