Inversion Challenge 2017 & Beyond

So I said I was going to keep going with this challenge until December but I don't think that's going to work out. My life has gotten very busy and to be honest this isn't a priority anymore. Also I have had ongoing issues with patchy hair loss and a sore scalp. Especially in the colder months. The inversion challenge did not make it worse but unfortunately didn't make it better either. So I've been trying other things and I'm seeing some improvement.

When I get to the bottom of this problem I might revisit the inversion the challenge. But for right now this is the end of the challenge for me.

I have to become more consistent with posting. Today, I massaged with a small piece of aloe vera leaf from my plant. I applied it directly to the affected area on my scalp as I spoke out loud to The Lord about expecting and receiving, not only my healing, but also a head full of healthy hair, in Jesus' name.

I also inverted for 4 minutes. The prayer made the time go by so much faster.

Day 4 I inverted for 4 minutes with massage and prayer. I washed my hair earlier today and applied olive oil to my hair and scalp. I then applied castor oil to my ends.

I forgot to post before midnight, but I applied aloe vera leaf directly to my scalp and massaged it in. I then inverted and praised God for 4 minutes. This concludes Day 5.

I will post later today for Day 6.

Day 6 complete. I forgot to mention that I take hair, skin and nails vitamins every night before I go to bed, so that my body can absorb the most nutrients.

Today is Day 1 of my August Inversion. I massaged with jojoba oil and thankful prayer. I inverted for 4 minutes.

Do it, @jennex , consistency is the key!

I'm formally ending my inversion process. I did it for about 1 year + some months. I will say my hair is at its longest that I have ever seen it. BUT, I totally revamped my process doing a NO Comb Method and adding Shea Butter and an Ends Routine. I'm going to let inversion go. It was nice to consistently do it.
Do you feel like the inversion method was worth it? Guess I’m just curious as to why you decided to end it.

Day 2 (Tuesday) of the inversion with prayer. My hair is straightened, so I won't be adding anything to it except a little oil from time to time.

Day 7 was completed yesterday with prayer, a scalp massage, Hawaiian Silky and jojoba oil plus a 4 minute inversion.

From the looks of things, my hair is beginning to grow back, but we'll see for next month.
