One 2012 study found that when people evaluated photos of the same men pictured with and without their hair, they saw the men as “nearly an inch taller and 13% stronger when pictured with shaved heads versus with hair.”

Hi there…sorry to hear that! I like to alternate with the oils. I wash my hair every other day, so when I’m not washing my hair I do the inversion method without any oil and then when I am washing my hair the next morning I will use coconut oil when massaging and leave it overnight. You can adapt the method to suit your needs, for example if you only wash your hair once a week then you can use coconut oil just once, but still do the inversion the rest of the days without oil. I hope that makes sense!
hi:) I NEED my hair to grow before Sunday. I’ve been trying something someone told me and they said after you shower put conditioner in your hair and keep it in but I just find it greasy and not sure if it works. do you know anything about that?
If the smell of Johnson’s No More Tangles triggers PTSD flashbacks to your childhood, you know what’s up. Thick hair means knots that are tied with Boy Scout–level strength. Forcing a comb or paddle brush through it is time-consuming and hair-ruining.
Bobs don’t always have to be layered. If you want to celebrate your thick hair and make it even bigger, get it stacked. The hairdresser term for it is “graduated”. This haircut will give you a lot of volume. To add even more volume, curl it!

I’m african and I have a 4B hair type. I”ve.seen the inversion method somewhere some time ago when i had a big chop and i’ve tried it. It really worked. I did mine for.4 minutes everyday, sometimes with coconut oil and sometimes with olive oil and i use Amla hair oil sometimes also. I grew up to 1-1.5 Inches per week. I’ve left it for a while now and i.think i’ll get back to it asap. Thanks for this post Anu
The Inversion method. Haha. I did not realize at first how much of an afro it will give you if you massage your scalp for 5 minutes when you have only have 4.5 inches of curly hair. My question is it better to massage it when wet, dry or with oils?
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!
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.
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!
As it turns out, just because your ponytail is extra full, it doesn’t automatically mean your hair is thick. In reality, it might actually be dense. “One of the biggest myths about hair thickness that people make, especially if they have any ounce of curl, is that their hair is thick, unruly, and unmanageable,” says François. “But, what you’ll find is that the majority of people that actually have curly hair, but it’s not thick or dense. So when they straighten their hair, you actually see it is quite fine.”
I appreciate this article as do I all of the information from Dr Axe. but I have limited my intake supplements I am a bit older now and I dont feeli like taking them all , Plus I am planning ot switch from regs ot vitamin code and that should do it. thanks Dr Axe.
Apply to dry hair and work into scalp. Push it all up on your head and wait for 30 min. Then wash with a mild shampoo. (I use my L’occitane). You may have to wash twice. Then condition as usual. Towel dry. You will feel the difference, It shines, and feels thicker even the second day,. People comment. This is simple and healty, you won’t regret it. The women in my family are all using this combination now. My cousin’s husband said, “Your hair is thicker.” they have been married for 40 years. This works.

If you leave coconut oil in your hair over night and put a hot towel over it, and then rinse it out in the morning and just use shampoo on the most part of your hair and then just a little bit of conditioner on your ends. Don’t towel dry your hair either cause that breaks your hair and makes it frizzy.
Loved your article on hair supplements. It appears you found a solution to your hair issues. Rosemary oil and green tea before going to bed. Do you put the essential oil on your hair, if so how much? I am aware ot biotin for the hair, but what benefit do you receive from the zinc? My hair breaks easily especially when i comb after hair wash. Your hair journey is very appealing. hope to hear from you soon.
Hi there, thanks for your message. With the inversion method you can sit on a chair and just tip your head forward and over so your hair falls forward – you can then start massaging your head. If you feel lightheaded or dizzy then stop immediately. You can eat plenty of food that’s good for hair growth such as spinach and nuts. To get your hair back to good health I can recommend using coconut oil on your scalp and through the lengths of your hair – you only need a small amount to really inject some moisture into your hair.
Hi,I had lost my hair because of bad diets specially in-front of my head was terrible.It affected on my self confident badly.But I started to apply a combination of Castor oil(2/3)+ Coconut oil(1/3). I do it every 2 days and leave it for 2-3 hours on my scalp and then wash it with shampoo which has 5.5 ph and also rinse with mild water.Now after 2 months I can see miracle,new hairs are growing also my hairs are thicker.
Human hair follicles are very sensitive to the effects of radiation therapy administered to the head, most commonly used to treat cancerous growths within the brain. Hair shedding may start as soon as two weeks after the first dose of radiation and will continue for a couple of weeks. Hair follicles typically enter the resting telogen phase and regrowth should commence 2.5 to 3 months after the hair begins to shed. Regrowth may be sparser after treatment.
For this cut, I used Kevin Murphy Body Mass to blow out while using the large Varis round brush. We finished with Kevin Murphy Bedroom.Hair for some extra texture. I recommend getting a trim every eight weeks to maintain the bounce in the layers.
Hair is considered to be a major component of an individual’s general appearance, and the psychological impact of hair loss results in detrimental changes in self-esteem and self-worth. It also affects a large number of people, as 50 percent of men are affected by genetic hair loss by the age of 50. In women, the major cause of hair loss before the age of 50 is nutritional, with 30 percent affected. The main cause of hair loss for women appears to be depleted iron stores, but corrections of these imbalances can stop the excessive hair loss within a few months. (15)

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!
Actually I just rebond(straight ) my hair and its look really ugly for my face. I seriously dont know how to get rid off it. My plan is hoping my original hair grow faster so that I can just cut the straight hair. Anyway my original hair is curl.Any advise please??? Help needed
There’s been a revolution in biology. Armed with powerful new tools, scientists are learning how to read the complex chemical languages of the body, including how to coin new treatments for hair loss.
Thought my whole 16 years I been trying everything for my hair growth but nothing works for me but as soon as I read this I figure should I give it a try because I want my hair to grow thicker and longer before my senior year on June 3 I’m going to go cut it and I really really hope u guys can recommend me some shampoos and conditioners to use because I really Wang my hair long ??
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)
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.
Adding a fringe to a haircut will not only give it more character, but will also help in removing bulk. By cutting a fringe, (taking hair that normally falls to the sides and have it fall over the forehead) it lessens the hair and bulk on the sides. This beautiful fringe swoops over the forehead beginning at a deep side part.
One of the reasons ur hair is falling is because u wash it everyday. That makes ur hair fall Very Very badly. I’ll give u some tips that worked for me. I had very curly, thin and short hair but now I have thick hair which falls to my waist! This is wat I use: castor oil mixed with almond oil (or olive oil) I use this everyday or sometimes after every 2 days. And also the shampoo and conditioner that I use and realllllllly helped me are Mane ‘n Tail- if u live in uae or india (asia basically) u can get them at Spinney’s- and I use egg for my hair and if ur growing out ur hair then STAY AWAY FROM HEAT (hair straighteners, blow dryers etc) because trust me, if u use heat on ur hair it will not grow quickly. Especially for people with curly hair. And do not use hair sprays or heat protectants they really damage ur hair and make it dry.
I had really long hair. Well back in December I cut it up to my shoulders(12in.) Got cut off. I’m in desperate need to grow it back out to its original length by May. I’ve read the article and was wondering how well it really works to try the inversion method and coconut oil works.

Iam a woman at age 69 and my hair is thining. I hate it when the gray hair sticks out like a sore thumb. I want to purchase a vitamin suppliment that will help my hair to grow. Iam using a shampoo for thinning hair, however, I know I need to take something to help on the inside. I have limited income and can not afford much. Can you offer me any suggestions?
Thick hair is a hairstylist’s best friend when it comes to event styling. Normally, we’d have to put padding or extensions to make the hair look thicker and do a lot of teasing. With thick hair, all you really have to do is curl and pin things in place!
I oil my hair twice a week in the night & wash it the next morning, but still my hair looks thin & from the next day my scalp is oily although my hair is dry like oily skin. There is no fresh look & how to get rid of oily scalp.
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?
For what it’s worth, I had a holistic doctor tell me that my-and his-blood type (A+) required me to avoid meat which caused my thinning via seborrheic dermatitis. Seeing some results so far with this.
To put it plainly, thick refers to the actual width of a single strand of hair, while density is how closely packed the hair follicles are on your scalp. Hair can have high density, which is when there’s a lot of strands growing near each other, or have low density, which is when the follicles are more spaced out on the scalp. Usually, straight strands tend to be denser than tight curls or afro hair.
Thick hair is awesome. You have enough hair to decide whether you want to keep your density, make it look like you have even more, or make it look like you have less. Here are some perfect hairstyles thick hair. We promise you have more options than you think!
Hi Nicki. Although I didn’t write this article, I have had wonderful results trying some of Anushka’s tips. The inversion method in particular worked really well for me 🙂 I’d definitely give it a go!
– Use essential oils such as rosemary , peppermint , olive oil , coconut & Castrol oil to re grow hair , you can use these oils once or twice a week and you can heat it up in the microwave to restore blood flow to the hair cuctiles.
