Default Growth

Hi, When I was little, my hair used to be really long and somewhat thick. It used to grow like no other; now it's almost like it is stuck. It doesn't want to grow, and it feels thinner. Other than the thinner part, my hair is very healthy; I don't straighten it or anything.

Does anyone know of any concoctions that I could put in my hair to help it grow longer and thicker? I'm open to pretty much anything.

I've heard that rosemary oil massaged on the scalp helps. Also there's this funny thing called the inversion method which can supposedly make your hair grow up to an inch in a week...

However, maybe you should get yourself checked out. I would chop the thinner part altogether because although you say your hair is healthy, maybe the ends are thinning because of split ends running their way up your hair. How often do you trim your hair?

A 2C, hopefully something more as my hair gets redefined. Lots of chemical/heat damage to get rid of! Currently at shoulder length, aiming for mid-back.

(Any HtBlack you find anywhere on the internet is most likely always moi! :3)

Very little is proven to be effective. Massage and regular physical activity is effective for some, probably by increasing blood circulation.

The obvious partner to those is to take a brutally honest look at your diet. Is it balanced and nutrient dense? Do you eat from ALL the food groups, little processed stuff, a very wide variety of wholefoods?

Like Firefox indicated there aren't any special homemade concoctions which are proven to make your hair thicker and grow quicker.

One thing not mentioned is that some medications and hormone conditions cause hair thinning and effect growth. Even very common medications like the Pill can cause increased hair thinning in some women.

This means even if your diet is wonderful and your have all the vitamins and minerals you need, the medication/your hormone levels will override it. However as some medications are needed to maintain your life or improve the quality of your life the standard advice is to live with thinner hair.

I take botian, ive heard that msn helps as well, you can get them anywhere. to the rosemary, it really works well, ive make a mixture and swear by it, i use argan and grape seed oil as a base, then i add rosemary and lavendula oil, though pepermint oil helps as well, i just message it in my scalp, smells so good and helps with head aches and any scalp problems you might have. my bf gets bad dandruff and dry ichy flacky scalp, i use it on him for a week and it clears up!

my hair: 3c, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

I also blog about my hair journey, please feel free to read and comment/ask questions http://www.naturallycurly.com/blogs/...air-blogs/2494
