I desperately need help. I need to grow out my hair in three weeks for an event and I have tried these methods but they do not seem to be working for my hair (my hair hair is African, soft and natural). The coconut oil is working but it works so slowly on my hair, and it will take about two months to grow it out how I want at the rate it is growing. Please me with tips, hacks, tricks. Anything. And I cut my hair for another event one time so that also contributes to the slow hair growth. Please help, I really need to be there for the event!!!
The key to a good style starts in the shower. We washed and conditioned with L’Oreal B6 Biotin. We then used Dual Stylers by Techni.art Liss and Pump-up (also by L’Oreal) for volume with a velvety smooth finish. I finished the look with Kevin Murphy Shimmer.Shine and a little hairspray!
I can also recommend using a wire scalp massager like the one below if you prefer. It’s a lot easier and won’t tire out your hands or fingers. Get one for as little as £1.92 from Amazon with free delivery.
I have not tried those? Where can you get them from? No I wasn’t sponsored by Lee Stafford, it’s a genuine recommendation. It was recommended to me by a friend who swore by it for hair growth and I was pleasantly surprised to find it worked!
“Rough-dry your hair until it’s about 80 to 90 percent done,” says Santiago. “That’s superimportant for people with really thick hair; otherwise you’re going to be there forever. Once it’s almost dry, then attach the smoothing nozzle to your dryer, making sure it’s always facing the end of your shaft to smooth it out.” Rough-drying does work better for straight- and slightly wavy-haired gals though. “If you’re prone to a lot of frizzing or your hair is supercurly, rough-drying can open up the cuticle too much. Get the nozzle on a little faster if that’s your hair texture.
Thinning hair itself can be a source of stress. Calm your mind by doing everything you can to help your hair be healthy, like using natural products, making healthy lifestyle choices, and getting all your vitamins.

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.
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.
Hi, i am Neha. I am very depressed by my hair health. When i was in school i had thick and long locks, but my hairs have come to its half thickness. Please let me know some tips which can help me gain my hairs back. Please help me.
Hi Ammaarah, The best thing about hair, is that it almost always grows back, so don’t fret! You have said your hair is dry, so first and foremost I would recommend a coconut oil treatment to renourish it and get it looking and feeling healthy again. Secondly, I would advise the inversion method to encourage hair growth. Do these things, and within a few months your hair should look better than ever! I hope this helps 🙂

Anyway, I realize that many men my age or younger suffer from hair loss but I find myself really distraught about how I look and this affects my self confidence and my mood almost on a daily basis. I really would like to know if indeed there is a nutritional regiment that you could develop that I could follow that really would help with my thinning hair.

This is a great look for someone with thicker hair with a little bit of wave to it. It works for most face shapes. My guest has an oval face shape and came in with a long, almost one length cut. After feeling like her hair had no life and all she was doing was throwing it up in a bun, I decided to add all of the layers to allow for a more versatile look.
Hey, I would try out the henna method. Question is how often I am suppose to do this treatment? I have tried so many methods and nothing worked out. I would appreciate if my doubts are cleared. Thanks a million!
Alopcia areata is not related to a more serious condition known as cicatricial alopecia, in which the immune system attacks the stem cells in the bulge of the folicle. This results in permanent hair loss.
Even though modern folklore, and even some limited scientific studies, have suggested that the mother’s side of the family is largely responsible for a genetic predisposition toward baldness, the truth is balding is not all our mothers’ fault. In fact, doctors now say baldness patterns are inherited from a combination of many genes on both sides of the family. There are some environmental factors that come into play, too.
Use 1/2 cup heena powder + 3 Tspoon fenugreek seeds powder + 1spoon olive oil + water = consistency not too thik not too runny(mix it well and leave it about one hour on your head than rinse with luke warm water and than shampoo it). Its work as megic. Try it once a month or if possible two times in a month.
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.”
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)
I had chemotherapy and radiation for tonsil cancer about 10 years ago and I can’t get my hair to grow no matter what I’ve tried. I was told to try coconut oil and a regrowth hair product. Will it work or any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated
My problem is actually oposite, my hair grows like a chia plant, i cut it really short and by the end of the month i have the big hair again, i cut my hair with on passed a 2 and have my hair really short so now im gona see how much it can grow in a week
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
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
Why is this pattern of hair loss only in the front and on top? That’s where hormone-sensitive follicles live. The follicles on the sides and back of the head aren’t affected by DHT and usually stay healthy.
I had a very thick,long,black,and shiny hair during my school days,but unfortunately all of sudden there was severe hair fall,nd never again got back my hair, I feel very insecure now due to my thin hair where scalp is visible if I go out in the sun….I have pcod… But isn’t there a solution for this at all … My main tension is regarding my hair especially wen I see gals with a thick hair it reminds me of my own hair… It’s really sad… Plz help … I find the above tips interesting I ll surely try but hope by gods grace it ll help…
When you are out in the sun or in the pool, you have to take measures to protect your hair. Keep in mind that keeping the hair safe can result in thicker hair in the long run. Some measures you should take to protect your hair from outside damages:

For the second supplement, take a B-complex vitamin or specifically biotin. B-complex has biotin (about 325 micrograms) as well as vitamin B12, both of which have been shown to help thicken hair, skin and nails.
