Inversion Method. Must or Bust?

There is no real secret to hair growth. Good nutrition, good manipulation and good products should actually do the trick. But what if there was a way to boost your results with very minimal effort? So we were up for the challenge.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last 10 years, you have probably heard of the inversion method. One of the many trends that promote hair growth. But is it too good to be true?

It sounds very simple. At least in theory. The idea is that laying upside down will increase the blood flow to your scalp, therefore bringing nutrients to your hair follicles and assisting in the growth process of  the hair shaft. To even improve the benefits of this method, it is believed that using a hair oil such as jojoba, almond, or castor oil should be added to the routine as well. So we did just that.

Using our Scalp Stimulating Oil with Cayenne Pepper to boost the effect of the method, our editor took the challenge and decided to practice the inversion method for a week. Once a day at the same time she would lay upside down on her couch or her bed after having rubbed her scalp with the oil for about 5 minutes. Her words were: "a feeling of warmth and tingling. The massage was my favorite part and watching my favorite show upside down was weird at first but I definitely got a kick out of it. Plus my little puppy thought we were trying a new game. I felt a little bit dizzy after, so I would not recommend it to everyone, or maybe try doing it for a shorter amount of time. After a week I noticed that my hair felt shinier, softer, more manageable, AND I'm happy to report that I also retained some length from the process. Half an inch to be exact, which is a pretty good result for a week. Would I do it again? HECK YEAH!!! But I would probably do it only once a month or every other month."
