How to Use the Inversion Method to Grow Hair?

Hi Girls,

Recently I have heard so much about Inversion Method to Grow your hair, so I did my research on this and found this step by step process which may help you girls too, who want to grow their hair and struggling with hair fall....hope this helps:)

Want to regrow hair or grow hair faster? One of the most popular ways to do this is through the inversion method. First, you apply oils to your scalp and then you hang your head upside down for a short period of time. Practitioners argue that the increased blood flow to your scalp reinvigorates dormant hair follicles, thus increasing growth. No scientific evidence exists that proves or disproves the inversion method's ability to regrow hair or to grow hair faster on normal scalps. For every success story touting the wonders of the inversion method, there is another debunking its claims. Doctors tend to explain purported results as the product of better hygiene and relaxation, not as the result of some miracle method. Either way, why not try it for yourself?

Part 1 of 2: Applying Oil to Your Head

1. Choose your oil. There is not one agreed upon oil for the inversion method. Try olive oil, coconut oil, grape seed oil, or Moroccan argon oil, if you want to use natural ingredients.

· Choose oil with an aroma that you find soothing. Since the inversion method incorporates massage, pick scented oil that you find relaxing.

2 Warm up oil. Warm up around 3-4 tbsp oil. Take a cup of hot water and place your oil bottle in it. You can get this water from the sink. Let the oil sit for a minute or so until it is warm to the touch. Your goal is to increase blood flow to your scalp. Warmer oil will increase the blood retention in your scalp cells. Do not overheat the oil. You don’t want to burn your scalp.

3 Apply oil to your scalp. If you’ve experienced hair loss, make sure that you cover your problem areas first, and then proceed to cover the remainder of your scalp. Make sure that you cover your entire scalp with a thin layer of oil. It doesn't take a lot of oil to achieve full coverage.

4 Comb the oil through the rest of your hair. If your hair tends to split or break, try to spread oil to all of your hair. Hair splits or breaks when it is short on moisture and nutrients. Natural oils will help replenish both.

    • If you have curly hair, be gentle or avoid this step altogether. You don’t want to pull out more hair in the process.

Part 2 of 2: Stimulating Your Hair Follicles

 

1 Massage gently. With the tips of your fingers, knead your scalp. Move your fingers in little circles - clockwise and then counterclockwise. Don't be afraid to use your palms in addition to your fingers. Your palms can apply pressure to a greater area at one time.

    • Focus on your problem areas, but don’t forget about the rest of your scalp. Do not massage too hard or you might unintentionally rip out hair or damage hair follicles. Massage for 4 minutes and then stop.     

2 Tip your head upside down. You can do this over a sink or bathtub. Alternatively, you could choose to sit upside down in a chair with your legs over the back of the chair. No matter how you choose to do it, let your hair hang loosely and hold your head at a comfortable angle. Your goal is to find a comfortable position and to relax.

3 Hold this position for 4 minutes. This step allows the oils to seep further into your scalp and to bring blood to your scalp. Take deep breaths. Clear your mind. Relax. This step resembles meditation.

4 Sit back up. You don't want to remain upside down too long. It can cause an unhealthy spike in blood pressure.

    • Do not try the inversion method if you have low or high blood pressure, a detached retina, an ear infection, a spinal injury, heart problems, a hernia, or are pregnant. The inversion position itself could exacerbate your condition or cause further injury.

5. Consider leaving the oil on for a longer period of time. If you have an incredibly dry scalp, this might be a good decision. Some suggest leaving it in your hair for a couple of hours or even overnight.

    • Take a plastic bag and cover your hair so you don't get any oil on your clothes, furniture, or bed. You can use a normal grocery bad or purchase a plastic wrap meant for hair treatments. You can purchase these from any beauty shop.
    • If you decide to leave the oil in your hair for longer period of time, know that it could make your scalp and hair too oily. This could cause your follicles to clog up rather than grow new hair.

6 Wash your hair. Be sure to completely rinse out all the leftover oil. If you miss a spot, it will be far "greasier" than the other parts of your head. Make sure that you don’t use a harsh shampoo. Harsher shampoos (with a pH higher than 7) will strip your hair’s natural oils. Shampoos like L'Oreal EverCreme Intense Nourishing or Heads and Shoulders work well. Generally, any shampoo geared towards dry scalps has lower pH balances.

7 Repeat every 3-4 weeks. Depending on your personal condition, you might find it helpful to perform this treatment every 3 weeks. Repeated use at a higher frequency could make your hair too oily and may even clog your hair follicles, further reducing your hair growth potential.

    • Results will vary based on the person. Some may see results after the first use while others with more chronic follicle problems may not see results for several months.

So what do you think girls, are you going to give it a try? I will try this for sure. I have curly hair, and it does not grow that much. So I am definitely going to try this technique. But no technique works if you are stressed and do not eat or sleep well. Its all about taking care of you :)

Enjoy and Smile always:)
