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 Smita, Great to hear you are going to try the inversion method, let me know how it goes and don’t forget to measure it before and after. I don’t have any pics but I am definitely going to take some the next time I do the inversion method and add them to this post. I also get a lot of hair loss, try massaging very lightly and reduce the amount of times you wash your hair every week. Perhaps try washing your hair every 2 days?
i had a big chop (cut off my hair) in august 2015, my hair is growing really long but the middle part is veeery slow at growing and it is shorter than the rest of my hair… should i cut my hair again or is there something i can use for my hair to be the same length?
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.
A human study conducted in 2015 investigated the clinical efficacy of rosemary oil in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia. Patients with androgenetic alopecia were treated for six months with either rosemary oil or minoxidil (2 percent), which served as a the control group. Minoxidil is a medication used to stimulate hair growth and slow balding.
Our fine-haired sisters think we’ve got it easy just because we can do a doughnut bun without wearing a sock on our head, but having a mess of hair is sometimes, well, a mess. Here, finally, the solutions to the biggest thick-hair problems—except for clogging up your drain. Alas, we can’t help you there.
I’ve heard before that you can use Vitamin E oil in shampoo in your hair to help it detangle and I’ve also heard that you can use it on a scar or something like that in order to thin the blood a little and make it heal faster so that would definitely help blood flow, so if there’s no other underlying medical issues do you think it would be okay to use Vitamin E oil mixed with coconut oil for the inversion method to induce more blood flow to the hair follicles
best to apply pure coconut oil almost every day in a week except a day and have a head bath , use of shampoo frequent also to be avoided it contains much of chemicals , avoid hair dryer it weakens the hair cells use egg on hair let it for sometime and rinse nothing harm using egg
Correct! While a hair relaxer will straighten curly hair, it will not do anything for thinning hair. In fact, a relaxer could further damage your hair, especially if the product contains lye! Read on for another quiz question.
Testosterone replacement is becoming popular for men. Cotsarelis warns that this may accelerate hair loss. Propecia might help — but because it prevents testosterone breakdown, it might affect the dose of male hormone replacement therapy. Cotsarelis warns men taking both Propecia and testosterone replacement to make sure their doctor carefully monitors their testosterone levels.
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!
Thick hair is something more people would like to have. Whether your hair is long or short, having thick hair just seems to look better. Your hair may be thin depending on a number of reasons, but there is no reason why you can’t get thicker hair naturally. Climate is a big reason people have different thicknesses of hair. In colder climate hair tends to be thinner, while in warmer regions hair is often thicker.

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.

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 🙂
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?
But hey – whoa there, Dr Hawkshaw. Some of us aren’t actually “suffering” from hair loss. Some of us bald guys are enjoying not having any hair, and see no need for this new treatment, and in fact see you scientists constantly trying to cleanse the world of our rugged, sensitive, yet ultimately hairless look as something of an insult.
Use a “dry shampoo” to treat your hair in between washes. It keeps it looking fresh and has the added benefit of making hair look thicker. Dry shampoo is a powder you can comb through your hair, especially around the roots, between washings.
Very interesting article Dr. Josh. My doctor recommended hair oil (Kerala Ayurvedic Product) from Amazon which really worked well for me. I hope this may be useful for any of your followers. I would be very happy if this oil works for anyone.
If you wash your hair every day, your hair will be hurt and this may prevent it from growing thicker. In addition to this, washing the hair every day also removes the natural oils that are produced by the hair scalp. Instead, washing the hair 3-4 times a week is a healthy hair care routine. With this new routine, your hair will have a chance to reap the benefits of the natural oils. Although your hair may look a bit oily at first, it should balance out within 1-2 weeks.
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.
Thank You Dr. Axe. I appreciate some of the info in your articles and all the help about the essential oils. However my diet for the past 4 years has been everything you mention for getting hair back and I even purchased a program from another site and all of it is a total waste of time and money. Nothing worked for my hair. Hair loss is a very personal thing for many men and it is certainly a way to get attention by mentioning that you can reverse it. So many scams. Maybe it is a heredity issue but they all say that doesn’t matter..This stuff does NOTHING for my hair..As I mentioned I have been on this diet for over 4 years to help heal prostate cancer and I recently added your Rosemary and cedarwood for the past 6 months and NO difference..Also..I have NEVER heard from anyone at all that this has worked for them..You would think that if something really worked people and their friends would certainly want to let them know…NOT the case..never heard anything good about any hair rejuvination products..NEVER
A 2015 study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology evaluated the effects of a six-month supplementation with omega-3, omega-6 and antioxidants on hair loss. In the randomized, comparative study, 120 healthy female subjects with female pattern hair loss participated. The primary endpoint was the change in hair density evaluated on standardized photographs, and the secondary endpoint included changes in active hair follicle percentage and diameter distribution of hair growth.

Hi. I have really think hair but it’s around shoulder length. I don’t want it to get thicker but wanted it to grow out as much as possible, as soon as possible. Do these methods thicken your hair or just lengthen it?? Also how well do they work as I would really like long hair as soon as possible as having it styled soon. Thank you :))

Getting regular trims gives you the appearance of having thicker hair. In the long run, regularly trimming the hair also helps your hair grow healthy from root to tip. This is also among the most amazing tips on how to grow thick hair naturally at home in one month that I would like to share in the entire article today and people should not skip at all costs!
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.
Stacked bobs create volume and will make thick hair appear even thicker. Sometimes it can even make really thick hair look like a flying saucer! Instead of getting a stacked bob, get a layered bob. Layering your hair will remove volume while still giving you style and movement.

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.
