Hi Yvette, good luck with the tips in this article. I hope they work out for you! It’s hard to recommend a shampoo or conditioner as everyone is different and has different concerns and hair types. Generally a good quality haircare product will suffice when following these types, just make sure you use the right amount and give your hair a cold blast of water after washing.
Hi Thanks for sharing these tips but I just have one question. If you use the inversion method and massage every other day with coconut oil without breaking for four weeks in between treatments until your hair is your desired length will it stop working after awhile or damage your hair? Basically what I’m asking is why do you break for four weeks? Thank you!
Hi Dawn. Glad to hear you found the article useful. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you adapt to a cold rinse at the end of your shower – it’ll definitely wake you up, that’s for sure! Hope you have loads of success with the tips 🙂
This is certainly the single most informative site on hairloss and logical steps on how to reverse it. God bless you for giving me hope that this can be reversed. I am definitely changing my diet and focus my efforts on balancing hormones. Thank you for the excellent presentation of info as well as it’s easy flow with logical inferences / conclusions. Your writing style was so refreshing because it was not bombastic!
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
I have these really short hairs along my parting at the top of my head That look very odd. They don’t fit in with the rest of my hair(which is shoulder length) and really want to grow them. I don’t know what to do with them while they are growing and they won’t stay in a place. If I just do the inversion method with the coconut oil how long to you with it with take to grow and also is it okay to use hairspray ?
Alopecia Areata — Alopecia areata is considered an autoimmune disease in which the immune system mistakenly attacks the hair follicles. The effected hair follicles become small and drastically slow down hair production. Researchers believe that some type of trigger, such as a virus or vitamin deficiency, may bring on the attack. (16)
now my hairs are strong,thick,and shiny….all my friends ask me what did you use??? but I keep it secret…and now I can happiely leave my hairs loose….and move out for a party, shopping and do much more….try it …
“Sonic hedgehog can convert resting hair into growing hair,” Cotsarelis says. “We really don’t know it’s full role, but if it controls follicle size and growth, it could be something a treatment might be based around.”
After washing at night no less than 30 minutes before bedtime, let your hair air-dry overnight. “In the morning, you can achieve a blowout-like effect using a half-barrel curling iron,” says Santiago. “Split your hair into 12 to 14 sections. When you quickly swoop the iron through them to the ends, it’ll look like a salon blowout done with a big round brush but takes way less time.” You’re not going to have the same volume as you would with a real blowout, but you will look polished. And not like you just got caught in a rainstorm.
I had already been taking zinc and biotin, so we’re on the exact same path. However, I’ve added pumpkin seed oil based on Axe’s article. So far, things are going well (it’s been two months), my barber says he sees an improvement and is atonished at the overall rate of growth of my hair (I have to go weekly for haircuts). I have seen in the studies that it takes about 6 months before Rosemary oil starts showing dramatic effects.
“In the late 1980s, the standard of care was to take large grafts, plugs of 12 to 20 hairs, and implant them,” he says. “It would give either a very good or acceptable result. But some men, as they got older and lost some more hair, they got that doll’s-hair or corn-row phenomenon: Little poles of hair jutting out.”
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 🙂
Like many of my follicly challenged brothers, I can remember the exact time I started losing my hair. You may not believe it to look at my proudly gleaming forehead now, but I used to have long hair down to my chin, which I’d often dye black or beautiful, shimmering obsidian, which was the fashion at the time (for people into Linkin Park). Yet, slowly but surely, the long black or shimmering obsidian hairs would start piling up on my pillow every morning, and in an act of defiance against what I considered my own biological inferiority, I shaved it all off, and have had a skinhead ever since.
Hi Paru, sorry to hear about this! I know it can be especially troubling. Please follow the tips and advice found in the article, it would be great if you could include protein rich food in your diet and also try the inversion method. Good luck,I hope it works for you.

Hi Alishia. Do you mean https://www.johnlewis.com/phyto-phytophanere-dietary-supplement-120-capsules/p231369469?sku=231369469&s_kwcid=2dx92700026893102206&tmad=c&tmcampid=2&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI9aDj98if1wIVFW4bCh2KNwRuEAQYAiABEgK_d_D_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds ? I hope this helps.
Loved your article on hair loss. Have ten year old daughter-cancer pt who has been cancer free/off treatment for 3 years. Chemo /radiation has destroyed growth and any new hair growth.mostly bald for years now. How would you offer the above in child dosing? She takes omega3 and vitamin d along with multi and probiotic and eats well.
Will it be effective? This is perhaps the main concern for consumers, after all, why waste your money on something that is useless? Unfortunately, there are many products that simply don’t work, which is a real concern for many would potential buyers. Consumers need to be aware that there is a precise science in creating an effective formula.
Hi Neha, I’m really sorry to hear that. It can be hugely upsetting, have your sought professional advice? It might be due to an underlying health issue which is best to be checked out. I can recommend any of the tips in the above article, especially scalp massage with oil. Don’t rub too vigorously though as you don’t want to pull too many hairs out.
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.
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.
Direct sun exposure is the best way to absorb vitamin D, plus you can detox your body with the sun. Sit in the sun for roughly 10–15 minutes to absorb about 10,000 units of natural vitamin D. Topical application of vitamin D might also play a role in the restoration of hair cycle dysfunction in patients with alopecia areata. To increase your vitamin D levels with food sources, eat vitamin D-rich foods like halibut, mackerel, eel, salmon, whitefish, swordfish, maitake mushrooms and portabella mushrooms.

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!!!
Hi Meredith. Sorry to hear you were having trouble with your hair. We often forget just how fragile it can be – it’s really important to look after it! I’m so glad to hear our tips have been helping you out. Here’s to many more years of a happy head of hair!
Hi Beth, it really depends on how thick and long your hair is. I use around half a teaspoon and I have mid-length hair to my shoulders. A little goes a long way though so I would just add a few drops/amounts at a time and massage in. You can always add more.
The reasons why men feel compelled to take action on hair-loss also appear to have changed in recent years. Where once the main motivation may have been in conforming to an ideal of male sexual attractiveness, those working in the sector say their clients now talk about wanting to look young and virile in an increasingly competitive jobs market.
The range of treatments and therapies available to combat hair loss has increased dramatically in the past 10 years, from natural-look prosthetics to hair-thickening sprays and the transplants, which can cost between €10k and €20k.
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??

Egg is great for hair and skin and it’s got everything you need to build up the proteins in your hair to keep it thicker and promote new hair growth. Protein is one of the best things you can give your hair to make it stronger, thicker, and looking its best. If there is only one remedy you use to promote thicker hair, let this be it.
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.
Caviar Treatment Omega+ Nourishing Oil is amazing. It has a concentrated dose of Omega-3 and C22 Fatty Acids that deeply nourish hair while adding intense shine. This results in smooth, silky soft and shiny hair.
Often the most neglected yet important aspect of growing healthy hair is the vitality of the scalp. I found that maintaining the scalp and keeping it conditioned, invigorated, and inflammation-free is key. It’s easy to overlook the scalp; after all, it is hidden beneath a mane of hair, so dryness or irritation can be quite literally veiled. But the scalp is also prone to the elements you place on it, so principal consideration is generally to avoid overwashing. Washing two to three times per week was sufficient for me, which also helps maintain the scalp’s microbiome and leaves its natural sebum production intact.
Throw away products that have harsh chemicals. Instead, look for products that promise to help the hair grow thicker and longer. Take a look at the natural ingredients that boost up hair growth and avoid harming the hair with harmful chemicals. This is also one of 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!

This is a great article, thank you for the additional tips. I already use a great sulfur oil from consciousessence.com that gives me about an inch growth a month so I’ll try the inversion to see if I can get even more growth 🙂 I am really excited and can’t wait to try.

According to a research about the effects of stress on your hair [2], stress can be one of the main causes of hair loss. So, you should try to calm down your life, and you will find that your hair starts growing thicker. For example, you can try meditation that may help you find how to deal with your stress better.
