Thanks for the congratulations but I did not say that you dont need to do anything but turn your  head upside down to grow hair. That would be ridiculous  .  I said I am also using Sulfur oil, Maxi Hair  pills, biotin, fish oil, Monistat, GHE, protective styling, no heat, Laser comb, MSM and Diatomaceous Earth 

I only turned my head upside down  for one week so far for a total of about 28 minutes total. I started the HairFinity Sulfur oil and the Diamatomaceous earth (SILICA) around the same time... So I said there is no telling what caused the growth spurt. I honestly believe they all work synergistically  or a combination effect.

Yes, I read all of that...I was just congratulating you IN GENERAL for your hair growth (regardless of if you took part in 10 challenges or just 1, I still would have congratulated you because you sought out to increase your growth rate, and you did)

Well ladies I am checking in because my week is over. I look forward to doing this again in May. I will continue to do it while standing and bending over for the full 4 minutes. Next time I will do it first thing in the morning. I did not grow 1 inch....lol. I posted pics before I started and my leave out reached the top of my upper lip. I washed and conditioned my leave out yesterday and attempted to flat iron (I don't get my hair nearly as straight as the salon) but my leave out now reaches the top of my lower lip. Pardon the first pic it is rather blurry.

Now, I'm afraid to congratulate anyone :-)

Yaya, depending on how voluptuous your lips are, from top to bottom may be well over 1 inch. IJS Haha   Lol. Congrats on the growth, I'd be more than happy if I can get a difference like that.   

Ms. Kudos, I have the exact same attitude-every itty bit adds up darnit. 

Veemack, Being a habitual length checker, yes,  I am positive :-( I think my bouts with moisture overload has affected that area more than others but I have that under wraps now.  

ETA, Yaya, I hope you don't mind, I did a side by side for you and lightened and contrasted.

I don't mind at all! I certainly didn't know how to do it...lol. Thanks!

So here are pictures nothing much to see and no noticeable difference tbh. For next month I won't be using oils mainly I made up a concoction of aloe vera juice, peppermint, tea tree and a cream like monisat but it isn't. At least I won't have to wait to heat it up. Smile






Excuse the odd dimensions. I rotated them but that didn't happen. Confused
left shoulder blade -was 21-22cm = now 23-24cm
right shoulder blade -was 20cm = now 20cm
front middle -was 20cm = now 21-22cm
left side -was 19-20cm = now 19-20cm
right side -was 21 cm = now 20cm <<<- Cry that last one made me sad. 
The only thing I learnt from this is ps'ing will be in for life because my hair is at a plateau stage at the moment I can't get out if it. See you next month Wink

Well, my week is over. If my computer/camera worked, I'd post pictures (even though the results weren't dramatic at all). So I may still come back down the road a bit and post my pics so everyone can see.

I can't 100% trust measuring on my head because of the different lengths of each individual strand. BUT. From measuring and averaging things out, I got MAYBE a little over a 1/4 inch this week. Which, is disappointing, as that's my regular growth rate. :(

I still plan to do the challenge again in a month and see what that does for me.

Changes I'll be making next time:
Longer inverted poses (maybe 10 minutes long, twice a day, massaging the entire time)
Will add either cayenne pepper or MSM powder to my oil
May try a different oil (I just heated up olive oil this time)
Might blow dry my scalp afterwards, after adding more oil to my scalp (the oil never stays hot on my scalp once I apply it)

While I didn't gain any extra growth from this challenge, my hair IS much softer now after oiling it daily. So I might continue to oil it more often and see how nice I can get my hair to look. :)

I hope some of you have gotten better results than I have. For now, I'm going to start a new challenge and see what actually helps speed my growth up.

@Yaya juicy Embarrassed
@Kiki, Sorry it didn't work for you 
@Nattydoll, 20 minutes a day is a bit much. I wouldn't go past 5 minutes because inverting for looooong amounts of time can be VERY dangerous, sometimes more is not better.
