@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. 

I just feel like since I never felt dizzy or lightheaded in any way, that maybe 4 or 5 minutes at a time simply isn't enough for my body (I DO have poor circulation, to be fair). I even came up quickly from my inversions and felt perfectly fine, and I know that isn't normal. I imagine that means I didn't get enough bloodflow to my head. Maybe that's why it didn't help stimulate extra growth. When I was younger I would always get lightheaded after lying upside down for less than a minute, so it likely is my poor bloodflow (my health has gotten even worse the older I get, haha).

I might try this again sooner rather than waiting a while, since I feel my body didn't get the full benefit to really try it. Although looking back on it, a 1/4 inch in a week isn't too bad, so if I can stimulate even more growth on my next attempt, I should be grateful. Even though 1/4 inch is my natural growth rate, my hair had stopped growing completely before all these hair growth vitamins and massages, so I should be thankful that it's growing at all. :) I pulled some strands from the back of my head, and they're now grazing CBL (I might make it to my short-term goal after all). Even if my second attempt doesn't work wonders, I think I'll still be happy just trying to speed up my natural growth.

Good luck to all you ladies still in the challenge!

Whether or not you felt dizzy or not, as you invert your body, your heart rate slows down and your blood pressure begins to rise, pressure is placed on your eye sockets.. <----this for near half an hour cannot be good.

This is why it's recommended for a short amount of time unless you are an experienced yogi or done under the careful watch of a doctor/therapist. 


^Just wanted to put 1 more disclaimer to the 99 disclaimers in the video for everyone else.

BTW, how can I edit a post? TIA!

The Lurking Kind? When you used the aloe vera juice did you heat yours up? Don't remember reading if you did or not. If so for how long and how long would you wait until it cooled? Tia

No, I used it nice and cool. I did some research on heating it up for better results and could not find anything and came to the conclusion that heat might kill the beneficial properties.

I think we can only edit our posts a certain amount of hours (24 hrs?) after it is posted.

Thanks love. I will definitely do my aloe vera oil mix. I may not get inches but I find it soothing and relaxing.

O-m-g O-m-g. I am elated Big smile I am so happy with my results. FYI I used nothing on my scalp.


As you can see this stubborn area was at eye level and 1 week later is now at my cheeks! 1 inch baby 



I got about 1 inch on one side and 1/2 an inch on the other. 


A little less than half an inch. 


Last but definitely not least, these strands were no where near my scrawny collar bones and now voila! Another inch :-)

Congrats Lurkingkind, happy for your growth increase, so the front grew this time. Smile I didn't get a chance to do it with you, well I did it one day but this is a busy time of the year for me, I usually come in the house tired, so I missed a few things in my beauty routine. So that didn't fit it with my schedule. I will start again this time I will do it in the mornings that way it will not make a difference if I am tired when I come in for the evening. Again congrats! Blessings!
