If you want your hair to grow you’ve probably tried things like taking vitamins, eating healthy, exercising, and drinking plenty of water. But there’s another way that is quite effective in growing your hair called the inversion method. It stems from an ancient technique used by yogi’s and Hippocrates “The father of medicine.”
Hippocrates had his patients lay upside down to allow blood to flow to the brain and spine. This healed patients of various ailments because it stretches the spine and allows blood to flow the the brain and in between vertebrae. A similar technique is what is used in the inversion method to grow your hair quickly!
What is the inversion method? When you do the inversion method, you tilt your head slightly upside down. To do this, sit on a chair or couch and bend forward like you’re reaching for your toes. Or you can stand up and bend over slightly like in the picture above. Now gently rub warm oil (coconut, oil, grape seed, avocado oil etc.) onto your scalp. Keep messaging your scalp for 4 minutes and return to an upward position. Do this once daily for 4 minutes for 7 days. Then take a break for 2 weeks and try again. The reason you shouldn’t do this for longer than 7 days is that your body will get accustomed to it and your hair will not grow as much.
Why it works: By rubbing your scalp with your fingers you are stimulating the hair follicle, resulting in hair growth. By having your head partially upside down, you are getting blood to your scalp and hair.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What kind of oil should I use? You can use any oil you like. I personally like coconut oil or olive oil. You can add essential oils such as peppermint or lavender if you want a nice scent.
Can I rub my scalp for longer than 4 minutes if I want it to grow faster? It’s not recommended because you will overstimulate the hair follicles.
Can I do the inversion method without oil? Yes! I’ve tried it with and without oil and got the same amount of hair growth. If you decide to use oil, it is an added benefit because it will condition your hair and scalp.
