Trying to get back into inverting and finish the year with a growth spurt. I'm on day 2. I've been inverting for 4 minutes after spraying my scalp with Yerba concentrate and Netwurks Xcel-21. I massage for about 2 minutes after each product. I will be more consistent in 2017.

I decided to suspend inverting until Hurricane Matthew passes over. I don't feel like doing them right now - too concerned about my homeland at the moment.

I've been keeping up but failed to post the past couple months. Will resume posting for November when my week comes up.

Hi! I know I'm suuuuuper late to the party but I hope I can join you guys! I've lurked around here before but this is my first real post!

I'm getting married in March and I really want my hair to be its best for my special day. My hair grows very slowly (like 1/2 an inch a month if I'm lucky,) but I've had moderate results from the inversion method in the past. I'm hoping that I can make it to APL by my wedding day. So, if it's OK with you all I would like to join the challenge!

Hair type: 4a/3c, fine, high porosity, medium to low density.
Current length: shoulder/collarbone length
Goal length: APL
Need to grow: approximately 3"

Today was my first day doing the inversion. I used Mielle Organics Mint Almond Oil and massaged for approximately 5 minutes, then inverted over the edge of my bed for 4-5 minutes. I don't have a LC picture, but here is a photo of my blown out hair. Wish me luck! :D

Ok just completed day 2. I did a five minute massage again this time but I skipped the oul because my scalp feels moisturized from yesterday and I don't want to overdo it. Then I did the inversion for four minutes. :cool:

Day three- done! No oil, 2 min massage, 4 minute inversion. I hope I can keep this up over the weekend. Whenever I do the inversion method, the weekends are always the hardest to do it because I'm not in my regular routine.

Uh oh I'm slacking! I accidentally missed a day. With all the confusion of moving to my new apartment, I totally spaced and forgot to do it. So last night's inversion is day 5 completed. Two more days left!
