A 2012 study published in Anatomy & Cell Biology found that aloe vera gel reduced inflammation and had notable wound-healing effects when used on rats after a surgical incision. Not only did aloe vera promote rapid wound closure, but it also enhanced hair growth at the sight on incision. (13)
This asymmetric bob starts out even one side and continues to be even as it reaches the back, but gradually gets longer as it reaches the other side. It is parted to the side and has a sassy side-swept fringe.
Hi Mal, thanks for getting in touch! Getting regular trims are essential for healthy hair growth, plus if your hair is dry and split ended then it’ll only appear shorter even if it is growing. I would get a trim about 1-2 inches to tidy up your ends then use a moisturising oil on your hair every week. Are you using hot tools and how often are you washing your hair?
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 🙂
My hair returns colour when I get regular B-12 injections. I was anemic so maybe this has something to do with it. My mom uses ACV and takes black strap molasses regularly and at 88 still has some black hair. Good luck.
I have fine blond hair. I have tried 100′s of products. Some hairdressers over process. (if you ask for a weave, ask for 5 foils, not a partial or full weave) avoid over processing. And, do not use that hot flat iron on your hair.
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.
Hi Thahani. We’ve actually never heard of this method before, so can’t speak from personal experience. However it looks like fenugreek seeds would be super nourishing for your hair, so you could give it a go. It definitely won’t do your hair any harm! 🙂
If you guys want really thick hair in about 2 months (depending on your hair composition like porosity, texture, and oil levels) I suggest using herbs like rosemary, powdered oak, and nutmeg for oily hair, oils like cactus oil, castor oil, olive oil, and sesame oil for dry hair, and a hair mask of 1 egg white, full onion, and 2 tbs olive oil blended together for normal hair!
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.
Do you how to naturally thicken your hair? And also get healthier-looking skin and thicker, strong nails? This is something I actually get questions about pretty frequently, so I’m going to go over the best foods, the best personal care products and the best supplements to take when it comes to having healthy skin, hair and nails — and specifically, we’re talking about how to thicken hair naturally and also hair loss remedies.
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.
Hi Riru, sorry to hear this. I’m afraid I don’t know too many professionals that could help you apart from Belgravia in the UK – http://www.belgraviacentre.com/ – give it a look, they have some interesting information on hair loss that could be of help to you. Best of luck.
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!
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!

– Don’t keep your hair out, ponytailed, or in a bun every day. Keep hair clean and use good oil in hair. After completing those steps, braid you hair. Many people wash their hair and braid it when it’s still wet, don’t do that because you hair will smell, you might also lose hair, and etc.
Due to hair makeup activities, I have done years of damage to my hair. I thought i should take care some steps to improve my hairs. After googling in internet, i came to know about Nuhairrx serum. I spend one full day to read the reviews about this product and decided to use this product. After using few months, i feel very happy with the result. If you’re curious about the method I used, you can check it out yourself.
It’s not the size of your conditioner bottle that matters, but its contents. “Choosing a highly concentrated conditioner means you won’t need gallons of product,” says Santiago. She likes KĂ©ratase Cristalliste and KĂ©rastase Chronologiste conditioners, which are so rich that you only need a dollop. “Avoid any conditioners that say ‘volume’ on the bottle—they’re not for the big-haired,” she says. Adding a deep-treatment mask to your routine is also key. If your ends are extremely damaged, use a mask once a week or every third shampoo, depending on how often you wash, says Santiago. If your ends aren’t too damaged, once a month will do.
It’s still not entirely clear how minoxidil works. And there’s disagreement about how well it works. Used properly — twice a day, massaged deep into the scalp — it slows new hair loss. It also promotes new hair growth, although experts disagree about how much.
My hair just never gets clean no matter how i wash it. I have tried parting it and stuff but no difference. I am African and my hair is a very thick Afro which does not help matters. My real greatest problem is that i can’t wash my hair everyday for 7 days. It would shrink beyond imagination. Is it necessary you wash out the coconut oil and also, do you have any advice on how to wash my hair?
I’ve been trying to get my hair to lengthen and thicken, I’ve not heard of the gelatin so I’ll be trying that, my hairdresser suggested taking silica tablets, I got mine from Holland &Barratt they were half price, when I ordered which was a bonus. I’ve been taking them a month now, I must say my hair looks to be stronger and in much better condition
I had long thick n shining hairs in school days.. now I’m 20yrs old. now my hairs became very very thin.. so plzz help to get thick hairs. I’m staying in hostel so I can’t use egg. plz suggest me any shampoo and oil
To help boost the method and give your hair an intensive moisturising treatment, every other day or for a few days during the seven, use a natural oil like Coconut Oil, Olive Oil or Argan Oil whilst massaging. If you can, leave it in overnight in a shower cap. More on these oils later.
While zinc can help with hair growth for those who are deficient, too much zinc in a non-deficient person can have the opposite effect. I’m currently experiencing hair loss due to supplementing zinc. Please present the complete picture when making recommendations.
The team first set about trying to figure out the molecular mechanism of the drug, before then carrying out a full gene expression analysis of individual human hair follicles, donated by people undergoing hair transplants, which had been treated with CsA. They were able to show that the drug inhibited a particular gene, SFRP1, which has in previous studies been shown to inhibit the growth of tissues, most crucially including hair follicles.
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.
I am dealing with hairline close to my forehead the hair just isn’t wanting to grow at all. Several people have said that my hair is damaged and fried an that there is nothing that I can do; I have been eating a ton of fruits and vegetables but I haven’t noticed a difference at all what more can I do for my hair, I am open to any suggestions or ideas that might help because I have been extremely embarrassed about my hair I’ve been walking around wearing a giant black headband.
My favorite part of this look is that no texturizing or weight was taken out. We embraced the fullness and simply took the weight out by adding lots of soft layering around the face and long layers through the back.

Eat omega-3 foods like salmon, mackerel, tuna, white fish, sardines, egg yolks, walnuts, hemp seeds and natto to reduce inflammation and balance hormones. If you don’t eat enough omega-3 foods, take one to two capsules or one tablespoon of a top-notch fish oil supplement to help reduce inflammation that causes hair disorders. If you already take blood-thinning medications, including aspirin, speak to your health care provider before using fish oil because it may increase bleeding.

A little farther up the follicle is the mysterious feature called the bulge. That’s where follicle stem cells live. When they get the right set of chemical signals, these self-renewing cells divide. They don’t divide like normal cells, in which both halves become new cells that keep splitting and developing. Only one half of the follicle stem cell does that. The other half becomes a new stem cell, and stays put for future regeneration.
Hi Anushka…. Firstly, I’d say a big thanks to you, for stating it all out as detailed and simplified as possible. More so, I’ll just add that from the hundreds of comments here, I’ve deduced that you seem to really be so positive about the efficacy of THE INVERSION METHOD, and for something which you’ve clearly stated that you’re overly uncertain of it’s outcome for each individual, I’d say,making it your number one go-to recommendation in all your replies seems rather Not-So-Encouraging and less than ideal. Nevertheles,I’m a man, though born in Atlanta,GA, I do have a deep Nigerian heritage,I’m talking both parents deep… So yeah,git the short,black curly hair and all that sstuff… After 4months,t’s currently in a semi-afro state, but I wish to make it grow longer, like so much…. So, fingers crossed, I’m really routing on these solutions working for me as wella…. Giving it a shot….taking a full go at it.

I have tried everything to make my hair grow faster for the past 5 years now, I know it takes patience but everything I try damages and dries it out. I’m uneducated about hair care and I could really use the help because I miss my long locks, anything I can do to speed up the process a little, I heard hemp oil and argan oil are good oils for your hair but I want to help my hair without going extravagant in price
Wear a swim cap in chlorinated pools. Have you ever had a stylist ask you if you’re a swimmer? Chlorine stays in hair and makes it visibly dry and damaged. Protect your hair in the pool, or be sure to wash it with a good shampoo before the chlorine dries.
