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
Hi there Twinkle, Sorry to hear you’re frustrated with your hair. I know how it feels when all you want is it to grow yet it’s going nowhere! Have you tried the Inversion Method yet? It takes a bit of effort, but it worked wonders for me and I’m sure it could for you too. I hope this helps. 🙂
Hi! I just got engaged, and I’m trying g to grow my hair back out to my waist where it used to be. I have about a year and seven months, and I want my hair back!! It’s to my Hawking now, so I’d say it’s about a fourth of the way there, and with an average of about six inches a year it’d be close but I’m really hoping you can recommend something to help me! My hair is naturally really fine but it’s strong and healthy! Please help!
instesd of using amla oil.. it would be better to include amla(gooseberry) in your diet as it will also provide many other benifits like its good for eyes and many more.so i will suggest you to use amla powder and consume amla . hope you will like it. thanks 🙂
I just got my hair cut to around mid-back but before that I had waist length hair. I really miss my long hair and want to know how well the inversion-with-coconut-oil method works. I’m hoping by the end of this month my hair will be back to it’s original length. Is it possible for it to all grow back in a month? (I just started the inversion method)

Hi Laura, put your head forwards and tip it so your head is quite low to the ground. You can also do this while sitting down. If you start to feel unwell or dizzy at any point then slowly come back up.
Hi Nathalie, sorry to hear this! I think all the tips in the article should help. Especially the diet tips and use of coconut oil when massaging your hair and scalp. Please try it out, if it doesn’t help it might be worth seeking professional advice.
As it turns out, just because your ponytail is extra full, it doesn’t automatically mean your hair is thick. In reality, it might actually be dense. “One of the biggest myths about hair thickness that people make, especially if they have any ounce of curl, is that their hair is thick, unruly, and unmanageable,” says François. “But, what you’ll find is that the majority of people that actually have curly hair, but it’s not thick or dense. So when they straighten their hair, you actually see it is quite fine.”
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.
These are just some of the many hairstyles you can try you on your thick hair. I hope they’ve inspired you to mix and match them or even create other styles! You have awesome hair. It’s your asset. Flaunt it!
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!!!

I shaved my head this time last year and had about 8 inches of growth from that time. Growing fast is totally an issue for me but also once I grow it out the bottom 3 inches or so are dead. And I mean D.E.A.D. frizzy, white nasty dead ends. What the heck causes that and what do I do?
Broccoli is one of the most important greens you can eat and it’s also a fantastic superfood, essential for hair health and growth. As well as Vitamin A and C it also contains essential B vitamins that are needed for strong hair. The antioxidants in broccoli, particularly vitamin C also prevent hair loss by eliminating the free radicals,  contributing to healthier and thicker hair.
“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 Mel. The average rate of hair growth is roughly 0.5inches/month so achieving 15 inches in a year and a half is very unlikely. To increase hair growth, be sure to try out tips! I thoroughly recommend coconut oil and the inversion method 🙂
Research it for hair, skin and nails health and research the essential iodine it contains as this essential element, which most of us are deficient in, is crucial to thyroid health. As you may know healthy thyroxine levels support shiny, healthy hair.
This is a great start for anyone with thicker, darker hair that’s looking to go into their first balayage. It’s a realistic goal, plus it lends itself to less maintenance by working with the client’s natural color and blending the hand-painted color up into the client’s root.
Soak two to three tablespoons of fenugreek seeds in water for eight to 10 hours. Grind the soaked seeds to make a fine paste. You can also mix two teaspoons of coconut milk in it. Apply the paste on your hair and scalp and allow it to sit for about 30 minutes before washing your hair with lukewarm water. When done weekly on a regular basis, this remedy will prevent dry scalp and help you enjoy thicker hair.
Since my guest had a round face shape, she can pretty much pull off anything. I try not to limit ideas and styles because of their face shape. I encourage my clients to be brave! Take this hair journey with me and I will be there every step of the way.
Massage your hair and scalp with warm olive oil and leave it on for at least 30 to 45 minutes. Rinse it out thoroughly and wash your hair using a mild shampoo. You can also leave the oil on your hair overnight and then shampoo your hair the next morning.
The best way to get thick hair is to apply 10-20 drops of almond or coconut oil daily. Wash your hair 2-3 times a week and never use heated styling tools like blow dryers or straighteners. Boost hair growth by cutting off dead ends.
Oral zinc compounds have been used for decades for treating disorders such as telogen effluvium and alopecia areata, forms of hair loss, because zinc benefits hair follicle health. Zinc is an essential co-factor for multiple enzymes and is involved with important functional activities in the hair follicle. Zinc is also a potent inhibitor of hair follicle regression, and it accelerates hair follicle recovery. Studies suggest that some alopecia areata patients have zinc deficiency, and oral zinc sulfate therapy serves as an effective treatment.
During the telogen or resting phase (also known as shedding phase) the follicle remains dormant for one to four months. Ten to fifteen percent of the hairs on one’s head are in this phase of growth at any given time. In this phase the epidermal cells lining the follicle channel continue to grow as normal and may accumulate around the base of the hair, temporarily anchoring it in place and preserving the hair for its natural purpose without taxing the body’s resources needed during the growth phase.
I really appreciate the information on your website regarding hair loss. I have tried the various supplements in your videos and articles for hair loss but I haven’t had much successes at stopping my continued thinning. I am a 45 yo man and while not completely bald yet, I am losing my hair in the typical male pattern of hereditary hair loss. My older brother by about 5 years has lost all his hair on top and I believe I will follow in this condition.
About a year ago, I cut my hair into a short pixie cut and while I loved it, it was hard to manage and I soon started to grow it out. It was while I was on my search for hair-growing products, that I was recommended Lee Stafford’s Hair Growth range from a lady in a LUSH shop.
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.
What is clear is that the same thing happens in aging men and women. Hair follicles get smaller. The anagen stage of hair growth gets shorter, and the resting (telogen) stage gets longer. The result: Thin, very short hairs — and many follicles empty of hair shafts.
