Have you heard about the inversion technique to speed up hair growth? Inversion apparently involves standing upside down or keeping the body at a somewhat inverted angle. The technique improves circulation, enhances brain functioning and stretches the spine in an all-natural way.
It all sounded fun and simple, which is why I had to give the technique a try, after seeing many before/after pics. I did body inversions for a period of seven days.
In the end, I did notice my hair looking stronger, fuller and healthier. Did it actually grow? I have to say that yes it did grow. I made the mistake of not measuring (I guess I wasn’t too hopeful) but definitely will next month, I’m going to track my progress.
Want to give the inversion technique a try? Here’s the ingredients that I used:
- castor oil
- coconut oil
- almond oil
- olive oil
1. Grab your oils and create the hair oil using 1:1 ratio for each ingredient ( which means equal quantity of castor oil, almond, olive and coconut oil). Some suggest that you warm it up slightly but you can skip this method.
2. Apply the mixture by section on your scalp (not on your entire hair). Then massage this oil with the help of your fingers, gently running it into the roots and hair for 5 mins.
3. Once the massaging is done, invert/tip your hair upside down gently and let it hang loosely, maintain a steady angle of inversion.
Sit on the edge of a chair and invert your head and stayed on that position for about 4-5 minutes (no longer than 5 minutes). By doing this, you’re basically bringing an increase blood circulation in your scalp. So if you increase the blood flow to your hair, you will inevitably raise and provide nutrients to your hair that will cause hair growth.
4. After that let the oil sit on the hair for 2 hours or braid your hair. I wrapped my hair with saran and let the oil sit overnight for better results.
5. Wash off the hair the next day with your herbal shampoo and conditioner.
6. Massage your scalp nightly with this oil mixture within 7 days and you will see results. I don’t know about you but it did work for me.
