The Inversion Method – Grow 1 Inch Of Hair In 7 Days!

Sensationalist headlines are very much part of our daily lives. An average day is so full of distractions, particularly online, that editors have learned to become, let’s say ‘creative’ with their titles to drive clicks to websites or increase circulation for newspapers and magazines.

However, in this instance the title of this article is completely accurate. The inversion method is the newest craze in the hair care community that reportedly allows you to grow an inch of hair in a week.

Actually ‘new’ is an overstatement (there goes the sensationalism again). This method has been around for years and I remember distinctly reading about it a year or two ago.

But at the time there were so many other hair methods, tricks and techniques coming out for hair growth; tea rinses, peppermint oil, the green house effect that it became overwhelming to try to remember them all.

For me and many others the inversion method was essentially dismissed as hair folklore.


Recently however, this method has resurfaced with many ladies searching for information and results so I decided to put my research hat on and dig out the what’s, how’s and when’s of this method of rocket fueling your hair growth.

What Is The Inversion Method For Hair Growth?

Simply put this method involves turning your head upside down for 4 minutes a day for 7 consecutive days per month (no more). You should couple this with a scalp massage with an oil of your choice.

How Does It Work?

The principal is simple. Essentially by massaging your scalp and turning your head upside down, blood chock full of nutrients rushes to your head and scalp thereby providing the ideal environment for hair growth. Essentially you are tricking your body into thinking that there is a huge abundance of nutrients so as a result there is an increase in hair growth.

It works in a similar way as many hair growth supplements that contain agents, niacin being an example,  that increase blood supply to the scalp thereby boosting hair growth.

The massage aspect of the method also bears close resemblance to the common method of increasing hair growth with scalp massages.

Thank you Shanique Buntyn

Ronnella Powell

@Sharron Jones I already had a quite a lot of new growth being that I’m 11 weeks but I have noticed that it has become harder to comb and very quickly so I assume I have obtained some more growth and really do think it is working. When I had did a length check it was on wet hair and I wash weekly and I pulled it down but I can’t compare length to dry hair

Alice Martinez

Wow! Never thought to try this!

Teandra Elder

Soo do you do it everyday to see the results in a week? @shanique

Dawn Juanita

@shanique Buntyn or anyone can you do this with braids?

Will washing my hair daily for the 7 days cause zero results from the inversion method?

Blackhairinformation

It should still work Viv. Caucasian women on Youtube had excellent results even though they washed straight after each massage and inversion.

Judy

I have done this. I try to do the inversion on the first week of the month. It works for me. When i finish the inversion i already see a half an inch of new growth. And with low manpulation styles i will have at least an inch of new growth.

Hey. I watched your video a few days ago and all… Ironically, looking for an answer to one question I had, I popped up into your website.
Ok, my question is do you have to apply oil to your head everyday for this to work? I mean.. It’s gonna be greasy looking and all if I do that.. But just asking. I really wanna do this.

Alma

Presumably yes you have to apply the oil daily. It does not make for a happy scalp, trust me. lol. Some ladies are washing their hair daily/every other day with this method so really it depends on you and your upper limit for greasiness.

Karen Baker

Interesting. I have heard of this and I will try it. If you can touch your toes, it’s somewhat the same principle. Or like some of you have suggested, lay across your bed and let your head/hair down. I’ll give it a shot and see what happens…..

Lovelyn

Can u do it with hair extension fixed in?

Jessica

Thanks for that information…I’ve had relaxed hair for 4 years and last year I decided to go natural. My hair has grown and getting back my natural hair and coz i can’t use creams I’ve used coconut oil (homemade) and noni oil (also homemade). I might try out this method tonight 🙂 thanks BHI

I’ve been using IM for the past 4 months. After the 1st month I didn’t notice any length growth. After the 2nd month, I notice 1/2″ growth, but my hair was getting thicker. After the 3rd month my hair was so thick I could barely get a comb through it. After the 4th month I noticed 1″ and more thickness. I only put a little oil on my scalp each of the 7 nights and massage for at least 10 minutes and then invert for 4 minutes.

I noticed that no one else has asked this question, but I’m very curious to know…..since I’m taking hair vitamins that promise growth also, should I see double the growth? i.e. growth from the IM plus more growth from the hair vitamins. Or will my hair just have the 1 growth spurt from one or the other?

My mother use to do this when I was a child. I would always look at her as if she was crazy lol

Netitia Henry

That’s is extremely funny

Journey to Waist Length

it actually works!

Christopher

So does this have to be at the same time everyday, or can you do it like 8 o; clock wednesday but 6 o’clock thursday, etc? (I’m not doing major gaps but I can’t always get the exact time down due to what life throws at me sometimes).
