    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. :nono:

    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 :lick::yep:!

    What's your take on the article?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 :)

    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.

    Inversion has caused gray hair to pop out that I never had before. Booooooo!
