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.
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!
Thank u very much, I tried the avocado yesterday and I’ve already noticed the diffrence, oh and the tip of using cold water to wash my hair and my drier on low heat also contibuted massively. Thanks and God bless
Massaging your scalp regularly with cold-pressed castor oil is one of the easiest ways to get thicker hair naturally. Due to its high viscosity, it coats the hair thoroughly and protects against hair fall. This oil has high amounts of vitamin E and fatty acids, that promote hair growth.
Hi Meher, hair straightening treatment may help give the illusion that your hair is growing faster as it’s growing down straight rather than in a spiral but it won’t affect your actual hair growth rate. I would suggest giving the inversion method a try and seeing if it works for you.
Wow, that’s the height of stupidity and ignorance. Firstly, hair is extremely porous, so oil, eggs, juice of onion or pastes like amla will absolutely heal both scalp and hair follicle. Second, eyebrows and eyelashes can start to fall and skin can begin to become stressed out from too much washing or facial scrubbing. Last, it is universally acknowledged that daily hair washing is not desirable and contributes to hair loss. Where did you get your information???
Hi my name’s Jamee, I’m a 17 year old girl who just graduated from high school. When growing up I was never told of the bad damaging affects of dying my hair so I did it for many years and now for the past 3 years my hair has only grown 2 inches and either breaks off or falls out. My hair has become very very thin and I now wear hair extensions everyday because of the insecurity I feel. I have very oily hair and don’t know what dry shampoo products are good for someone like me so I usually wash my hair everyday. I get my hair cut as regularly as it should but its still no use. I wash my hair in cold water and have used different techniques while washing, none have helped. I’m scared I’ll have to wear a wig when I’m older, and having to buy extensions and take care of them has become such a hassle. I feel like because I dyed my hair so much, it did something to my roots and I don’t know what to do. However, I do not have a very good eating diet and would like tips on that. I plan on using a lot of these natural remedies, if anyone has any input to helping me that would be extremely appreciated. 🙂
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 🙂
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.
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.
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.
If you want to stop hair loss and stimulate new growth, then Hairprin is the product for you. Of all the hair growth supplements currently available on the market, this is the one that deserves a closer look and very likely, the one that will change your life!
You don’t need to use all the products, but I highly recommend the leave-in conditioner and the treatment. The treatment can be used every time you massage your hair during the Inversion Method instead of a natural oil.
Mix one tablespoon of Indian gooseberry or amla powder in two tablespoons of coconut oil and heat until boiling. Strain the oil and massage it onto your scalp before going to bed. The next morning, shampoo your hair as usual. Do this on a weekly basis.
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 Vinita, yes hair specialists do say you shouldn’t wash every day but everyone is different. Some days I do wash my hair every day butI try to cut it down to every other day. I would suggest using the oil on days when you want to wash your hair the next morning, and simply omit the oil on days when you do not want to wash your hair. You can do the inversion method without oil too – I hope that helps 🙂

Having extremely long hair has been my passion since I was 14. I used to think that it was pretty tough. With this article, wikihow articles, and pinterest, I’m able to get my hair to go below the waistline and almost to my hips. I’m getting closer to classic length without realizing it. 6-8 inches to my goal length, baby (15-20 cm)! I eat more than enough almonds almost every day. More than any other nut I’ve eaten. Nobody in my family has hair as long as mine. The longest my female friends and family can go is down to their armpits. My sister had waist length hair and now it stayed at armpit length since last summer (June 2017). Most people don’t start doing treatments to their hair till later in life. It really was a good thing I started paying attention and doing all of the easy steps. Just now as I was doing the inversion method, I apply a really small amount of Argan oil (1 pump to avoid greasiness) and massage it in. It’s like a natural serum without the harsh chemicals including alcohol.
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.
Hi Katherine, you don’t have to use coconut oil no. You can use a good hair conditioner or even a touch of olive oil. It makes it easier to massage your scalp, and also provides a good conditioning treatment at the same time.
If giving yourself a blowout works your arms more than kettlebell class, you probably have really thick hair. (We’ve considered buying the Blo and Go from that infomercial strictly because of arm fatigue.)
This look is very low maintenance. Because of the Balayage highlight technique I used, she can go three to four months without a touch up because it looks so natural! She can blow dry it with a round brush to recreate the style I gave her, or throw some leave-in conditioner and a styling cream in for some natural texture.
Just thinking about the money I’ve saved on going to the barbers alone makes me weep with a weird, nonsensical pride that I can’t grow my hair any longer than Krusty The Clown-style sidebushes. Every time I need a haircut I just get a mirror and my clippers, and go at it – which is quick, painless and involves zero awkward chat with a hairdresser.

Haha it’s a great volume booster! Hhm personally I like to massage dry hair with a little bit of oil and then leave the oil in overnight. I don’t like to massage my hair too much in the shower when it’s wet as I find I loose a lot of hair this way.
Experimental evidence suggests that oxidative stress plays a major role in the aging process. Reactive oxygen species or free radicals are highly reactive molecules that can directly damage cellular structural membranes, lipids, proteins and DNA.

Well I tried the biotin thing to grow my hair which hasn’t worked and have bought some coconut oil but I’m only using it once a week also have started eating nuts as well. Have ordered some Lee Stafford hair growth stuff too I live in hope. I have had my hair cut short both sides because I had it in a style long one side short the other and I wanted it same both sides regret it massively now because I hate it so short.

Hi, I’ve tried every method in this article, but my hair doesn’t seem to want to grow. My hair is super healthy, but it’s only growing as slow as it did before. I’ve been using these methods for about two months, and my hair has grown about 3/4 of an inch. I have not exposed my hair to heat products whatsoever, or any bleach or coloring products. I have also tried warm argan oil, which doesn’t seem to make it want to grow either. Are there any other methods that might help me??
Hi Jodie. Glad to hear you’re going to try some of our hair-growth tips! I would start with 1 heaped tablespoon of coconut oil and go from there – you want to make sure your hair is fully saturated. Brand-wise, organic, unrefined is best. Coconut oil is only available in solid form – it’s solid at room temperature. To liquify it, simply massage in your hands before applying to hair. I hope this helps 🙂
