If you’re struggling to improve the growth rate of your hair, let us tell you that you’re not alone! Slow hair growth rate is a common concern today. This is another reason why most girls hate the idea of going chop-chop often.
But, what if we told you that there is a way to increase the growth rate of your hair without using any chemicals, expensive treatments or pills? Yes! We are talking about the “inversion method”. In this method, all you need to do is bend your head forward and flip all your hair in front of you. Then, use your fingertips to massage your scalp while you are in that position. Here’s a step-by-step guide to go about this method at home...
- Step 1: Prepare the oil
- Step 2: Apply the oil
- Step 3: Use the inversion method
- Step 4: Wash off using a mild shampoo
- How does this method work?
Step 1: Prepare the oil
Pick any from castor, olive, argan or coconut oil. Either use it separately or mix all of them together. Add a few drops of lavender or peppermint essential oil for effective results. Lastly, warm the oil slightly and ensure that it does not get too hot.
Step 2: Apply the oil
Dip your fingers in the oil and go over with it on the entire scalp using your fingertips. Run your fingers gently through your hair for about 5-7 minutes, making sure to cover all your hair from root to tips.
Step 3: Use the inversion method
Flip your head upside down and gently massage your scalp, thereby distributing the oil evenly across your scalp. After massaging, stay in that inverted position for a few more minutes. You can either stand or sit as per your comfort level.
Step 4: Wash off using a mild shampoo
Tie your hair in a bun or braid and let the oil sit for at least 2-3 hours. Lastly, wash your hair using a mild hair shampoo. We suggest you try the Lever Ayush Thick & Long Growth Shikakai Shampoo which contains the goodness of Shikakai used to promote hair growth.
How does this method work?
The inversion method involves scalp massage, and this is exactly what works in increasing the growth rate of your hair. Scalp massage not only helps reduce muscle tension and relieves headaches; you’ll be surprised to know that it plays an important role in promoting hair growth too. Massaging combined with keeping your upside down increases blood flow to your hair follicles. These two steps together help increase circulation in your scalp, thereby increasing hair growth.
While this is an economical way of promoting rapid hair growth, it is a slow process and you may not see instant results. The inversion method works depending on your scalp and hair type.
