Day 2 done with EVOO w/peppermint oil.
If I return to inversion, I will definitely have to do it where my legs are elevated on the couch and my back is flat on the floor. The dangling my head off the side of the bed was too much for my migraines. I got throbbing headaches.
Day 6 complete.
I gave up after day one...instant dizziness for me.
Hi nagasbabi, I was curious about the same thing... we'll actually I started doing the 7 days inversion method in November and was wondering where the inversion method came from. So I went online and found a couple of articles about it and came across one that peeked my interest, here's the link http://www.hairtodaytheretomorrow.com/inversion-therapy-for-hair-loss/#comments.
The article references Andy Bryant and the inversion table. You invert for 3 minutes at 90 degree angle on the invert table and with the increased circulation to the head the results is said to accelerate hair growth, and even regrow lost hair within 3-6 months.
Though I won't be buying an inverting table, I decided to give this version of the method a try. My head is bent to my knees for 6-7 min (I doubled the time since I'm not using a table) every day for 3 months at which by the end of April I will check the results. I know that seems like alot, inverting for 1-3 months straight, but I'm reeeeeally curious !
What's your take on the article?

Checking in for yesterday, I inverted without oil but massaged my scalp during.
i completed my seventh day yesterday. I haven't noticed any growth but I am currently weaved up. My nape area feels a little more fuzzy but there isn't even an inch back there to braid/twist. I was hoping to be able to braid/twist after the week.
I was waiting for my e check to clear for my subscription to start back up, but I completed all seven days with warm sweet almond oil on my scalp
Hair is still straight but finally inverted. Gonna try something a little different and invert twice a day the next 6 days.
Checking in for yesterday (day 5). I missed it yesterday so I did it first thing this morning.
Day 6 completed.
Day 2 done.
Crazy question: Do you avoid doing this while menstruating? My week to invert coincided with the start of my menses and it seems like my menses was weird.
I am on month 2, day 6 of inverting. Hopefully i will get another inch this month. I have decided to leave my braids in until July, I take sections out and rebraid them often though so I dont receive any matting or buildup.
ive always wanted to try this.
is it forbidden for people with high blood pressure? ( i am taking medication ).
anyone in this case?
i cant beleive some of you get an inch per month!
Sorry I took so long to respond I'm so late I don't know how to work this forum just yet lol but that article is extremely interesting and has a lot of knowledge cause I thought I could just hang upside any which way like I was batman lol but at a 90 degree angle makes more sense ... Has anyone experienced random hairs growing in random places do to this because of the blood flow up there like on there face or around there necks like extremely long hairs sprouting like bean sprouts almost lol?
Is anyone else getting an itchy and tender scalp? Since inverting this month, my scalp has been so darn tender, I hope that's a good thing.
Happens to me all the time...I thought I was the only one
Do you HAVE to heat up the oil when inverting? Has anyone done a round without heating the oil and gotten good results?
Thanks Altruisticoam. Are you noticing more growth than usual. I haven't bothered with measuring because I figured I'd know if inverting is effective soon enough. Maybe I'll measure next month.
Checking in for yesterday, I completed day 7.
When I'm consistent I think I see the extra inch, however I don't invert every month.
No idea if I gained any length tbh. I didn't know where I started at the start of the week. I'll be able to work it out on my next length check in a few weeks though
Is it too late to join? I will start this tonight!
Not at all KidneyBean86 I will start with you tonight. I didn't get much out of my session last time i inverted. Welcome to the challenge dear.
Wow, that is not a good thing, maybe inversion is not for you. I wish there was some other technique you could try
FollicleFanatic that sounds exciting.
Just checked and my hair has grown for sure! I want to say an inch but I don't know, super excited to do a length check now
Started my first day was today.
I had to restart because I missed a day. Day 2 complete.
Inversion has caused gray hair to pop out that I never had before. Booooooo!
