Whether you’re reeling from a bad haircut or pining for the full-haired days of your youth, we all know what it’s like to wish our hair would grow faster! Now, nothing is going to make your hair grow 5 inches overnight but there are a few tips and tricks to add to your beauty routine that will give you noticeable hair growth in a much shorter time. Go ahead and check out our list of hair growth tips below!

Castor Oil

Castor oil contains a high percentage of ricinoleic acid – one of the essential amino acids the body needs. It is an Omega-9 fatty acid that can penetrate into the pores of the skin and hair folicles, strengthening them. Castor oil is a great natural remedy for hair loss.

Inversion Method

Lots of people have experienced rapid hair growth (an inch in one week) by using the inversion method. Basically, this is a treatment you do for exactly 7 days. Once a day, you’ll massage your scalp with your fingers for 5 minutes. While you’re massaging, tip your head so it is beneath your heart. You can do this by laying on a bed, or you can sit in a chair and bend over. By doing this, you’re encouraging the blood to flow to your head and stimulating hair follicles. This helps your hair get the Anagen stage, or “growth” stage.”
