Wow, so I had to absolutely share this with all of you! If you want to learn how to grow your hair fast 1 inch in 7 days using the Inversion method than keep reading this post.
It’s not every day that I experience something new and that seemed to have actually worked! I was scouring Pinterest and the net to see if there were any new ways to help my hair grow faster and healthier. I thought I had seen/read it all…until I came across the “Inversion Method”! I had never heard of this before a few weeks ago and I just had to read up on it to see what this was all about.
We all know the net is filled with tons of ‘quick hair growth’ gimmicks that quite honestly I don’t believe in any of them but this kind of made sense in a weird way…keep reading 🙂
First of all, I will share what I currently do for my hair in my quest for beautiful, long, healthy, Rapunzel-like locks 🙂 Remember….it is a journey and every little bit helps.
Right now I:
a) take 10 mg’s of Biotin daily
b) try to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables
c) try to drink plenty of water daily
d) have sworn off heat, that means no blow dryer (unless needed for a special occasion) and no irons (curling or straightening).
e) drastically limited coloring (down to maybe once every 5-6 months
e) have learned to embrace my hair’s natural texture and work with it not against it
It’s not always easy but in the end it is worth the effort!
Ok…so onto the exciting part!
What is this “INVERSION METHOD”? In a nutshell…It involves massaging oil (preferably warm) into your scalp (such as castor, coconut, sweet almond oil or any one of your choice), then tilting your head upside down for 4 minutes for 7 days straight. You are not to do it for longer than 4 minutes nor longer than 7 days.
You can do this once a month. What is the logic behind this? Well, apparently there is a science. Tilting or putting your head upside down allows for blood flow to the head which in turn stimulates the scalp and of course aids in growth. Sounded simple enough and after seeing many before/after pics I decided it wouldn’t cost me a dime to try. And try I did! 😀
At the end of my 7 days (which ran from Jan. 31st to Feb. 6th) I did feel my hair felt and looked fuller. Did it actually grow? My pic is posted here below and 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 making one of those neat “measurement” T-shirts to track my progress.
I only massaged warm Castor Oil for the first few days as I was tired of washing it daily because of the oil so I switched to Aveda’s Invati Scalp Revitalizer Spray after the 3rd day. As far as how it feels…it’s a weird feeling putting your head upside down. Some may feel nauseous…I didn’t. I just felt a little light-headed. Just make sure to get up slowly after the 4 minutes are up and take it easy.
No rules as to when to do it. I was doing it in the evenings. Of course I will add a serious disclaimer here and like anything else I highly suggest you ask your doctor before trying this especially if you suffer from any medical condition.
This method is not advised for those who:
– suffer high/low blood pressure,
– are pregnant,
– have circulatory problems,
– heart problems,
– joint problems..etc etc…
So please use caution before trying this. The best advice will come from your doctor. Hubby would shake his head when he would see me hanging upside down BUT a picture is worth a thousand words and he couldn’t believe the difference either so I’ll let the picture speak for itself and let you be the judge 😛
