People have always asked me how I end up having such long hair in such a short span of time. Well, I wish I could say it was plain genetics, but honestly, it is more about this little oil and aloe vera treatment mixed with some vitamin E, castor oil and coconut oil. I learn this method and massage treatment from mom at a very young age, and I have to say that this is one of the biggest reasons why my hair is the way it is today! As an Indian I have learnt lots of ancient Indian hair care secrets from the previous generations, and this one is one of my favorites in my whole routine. Hence this tutorial today, hope you like it!

I don’t understand why Moringa wasn’t mentioned in this article. I have had to reduce the amount of Moringa Olifera organic leaf powder supplement I take because of the tremendous amount of hair growth it causes. If you want miraculous hair growth, then take this supplement from the ‘Miracle tree’.
Hi there, I’m so sorry to hear you’re feeling this way. Don’t worry, it will grow back! If you do the inversion method just once a month, but you can continue with the rest of the tips. Protein is excellent for healthy 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)
Hi Saanvi, you don’t need to apply coconut oil every time you do the inversion method. You can massage your scalp without it too. How about only using coconut oil when you are going to wash your hair?
Well kimp, English that isn’t in the form of broken texting would have a better result. But to be serious you can’t cure being naturally bald just slowing the process of thinning and balding faster then you would. So in short this cant help something your body’s genetic code gave up on, as it eans as you age whatever random code is at the bottom breaks and dies off in some cases it’s hair color or eye sight and yes balding. hope this helped clear up your problem.
While many companies promote vitamins or supplements for hair growth, they don’t always directly affect hair length. But the body does require a lot of energy to make your hair grow. Missing out on balanced meals and nutrients can affect hair growth.
To the ladies asking about lightening your eye color–it’s not possible, don’t put anything in your eyes –or you are liable to harm them. Love the eyes you have, or invest in contact lenses to change the color of the iris, but don’t believe anyone if they tell you that you can lighten your eye color.
So I want to try the inversion method to make my hair grow longer using coconut oil, but what brand is the best to get in coconut oil? I see the brand Palmers and OGX come up a lot, which one should I choose??

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
With age, the production of free radicals increases and the amount of antioxidative enzymes that defend the body decrease, leading to the damage of cellular structures and the aging of hair. By working as an antioxidant, vitamin C fights oxidative stress that contributes to hair graying and hair loss. (6)
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.
Hi there, you can try all the tips here to see if you can stimulate your scalp. I recommend doing the inversion method with coconut oil – every day for seven days. You can also leave the coconut oil in your hair overnight. Good luck!
I’ve tried these remedies and I’m very confident to say they really work especially the egg treatment. I did it for a couple of weeks and I could see a huge difference in my hair. I had thin brittle hair but now my hair is stronger and thicker. I’d recommend these remedies to anyone with hair problems.
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.
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.
If you want an asymmetric look for your bob but aren’t ready to commit, wear one side behind your ear. It will give the illusion of an asymmetric haircut. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll be ready to visit your hairstylist and actually get the haircut.

The body has different types of hair, including vellus hair and androgenic hair, each with its own type of cellular construction. The different construction gives the hair unique characteristics, serving specific purposes, mainly warmth and protection. Most humans develop the longest thickest hair on their scalps and (mostly observed in males) faces. This hair will usually grow to several feet before terminating, but many humans develop much longer hair.
I have a pixie cut and I’m getting tired of it, I just want my hair back ( at least to shoulder length ) before Christmas ( thanksgiving even! ) is there any ( cheap) way I could grow it out FAST? I’m in 7th grade and really don’t want a LONG awkward stage of growing out my hair. I know it will look akward at some points but if you could help me shorten that time that would be GREAT!!!

Hi Heidi, that’s exactly it. The massage provides increased blood flow to the hair follicle which boosts growth, if you did it constantly then it wouldn’t be as effective. Massage is brilliant for hair health anyway so it won’t hurt to massage your hair daily but if you’re after rapid growth then you need a break in between.
My best description of this look would be versatile and timeless. My favorite thing about this look is that it is exactly as described. It is versatile in that it is wearable for almost anyone, especially for women with thicker hair.
A stem cell research team from Yokohama National University used a “simple” method to regrow hair on mice by using dimethylpolysiloxane, the silicone added to McDonald’s fries to stop cooking oil from frothing.

hey L I am a vegeterian and am low in Iron, does that affect the thickness of the hair? I am trying NOT to take supplements however I will do anything to get thick hair ( I will do anything for thick hair)
Hi there Xander. I’m glad you had faith to trust out tutorial! We really have had lots of success with it and I hope you do too. The one thing I would mention is that when doing the inversion method, it’s extremely important to hang your head low. This forces blood to rush to the head which helps to stimulate the hair follicles and promote growth. Do let us know how you got on – we can’t wait to see the results! 🙂
In a 2013 study, researchers evaluated the role of zinc status in each of the four types of hair loss, including alopecia areata, male pattern hair loss, female pattern hair loss and telogen effluvium. In all of the hair loss patients, the mean serum zinc was significantly lower than the control group. The analysis of each group showed that all groups of hair loss had statistically lower zinc concentration, especially the alopecia areata group. The data led to the hypothesis of zinc metabolism disturbances playing a key role in hair loss. (2)

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.
