Not too long ago a story broke in the media of a woman who tried to rob a Beauty Supply Store of $850 worth of hair weaves*. The woman got involved in a violent altercation with the shop owner and at one point the woman’s little baby was caught up in the fight and fell from her stroller as it was being flung around.
After pleading guilty to attempted robbery, the woman was sentenced to 5 years in prison. Now the point I am making with this story is that there’s a reason why black women who form 12% of America’s population are consumers of over 33% of hair care products. Basically we take our hair very seriously.
Yes I know that the title sound ludicrous and we all know that every few weeks yet another lotion, potion or technique of speeding up hair growth is released but still you couldn’t resist clicking through to see what this one was about.
As a hair blogger I have seen and heard more than most when it comes to hair care and even though I reached my goal length a long time ago, I have to admit to a burning curiosity any time I come across a fast hair growth* technique and this is one is too fascinating not to share.
This particular method was shared by YouTuber longNhealthy (videos to follow) who while doing the inversion method decided to change a couple of things and see if they improved her results. And oh boy, did thye ever! She claims to have received 2 inches of hair growth in 5 days.
Here’s what she did:
1. The Inversion Method
If you don’t already know what the inversion method is then click here to read the full article. But the summary version is that you apply warm oil to your scalp and massage it, then turn upside down, either hanging off the side of your bed or bending over for 4 minutes each day. This increases blood flow to the scalp area.
You do this every day for 7 consecutive days and the method promises that you will see a growth increase of 1 inch in a week. LongNhealthy had already been getting good results from the inversion method but she decided to enhance the results with the these two extra tweaks…
