Despite my skepticism, last week I decided to try the “Inversion Method” for hair growth (see previous post for details). Well today is officially my last day, and I’ve come with results.
First off, I have to say that I did not follow the directions as I said I would. I still massaged my scalp and lay inverted for four minutes, but I did not use any oil after the first day. I realized how oily it made my hair, and decided against it. After washing my hair, the little oil I applied and my natural sebum seemed oily enough anyway. I don’t know if this affected my results or not.
Secondly, before I did any actual measuring, I just looked at my hair. It could very well be a placebo affect, but my hair looked and felt thicker. Now this could just be because the hair I’m seeing is natural, and I’m used to looking at relaxed hair. But even if the inversion didn’t make a difference in length, I feel like it affected thickness.
Okay, now on to the actual results. When I last measured my new growth, I was almost at one and a half inches (give or take in some places). Today, most of my new growth is between one and three fourths and two inches. This is between 1/4 and 1/2 an inch of growth. Not exactly one inch, but that does seem pretty good for only one week.
But my results have lead me to a few questions.
1. How do I know if this isn’t just my normal hair growth?
2. Will I get the same results if I try again next month?
3. Will I get less hair growth for the rest of the month after doing this method?
4. Am I imagining a bigger difference than is really there, because I wanted the method to work?
These are things that I can’t be sure of. However, I’m relatively happy with my hair growth over the course of this week. The scalp massages were nice, and I felt no ill effects from being inverted for the four minutes. With that being said, I see no reason that I won’t try this method again next month. I’ll make sure to do more accurate measurements next time, so I can really judge if the method works.
That’s all for now! Thanks for reading & happy hair journeys!
