@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!
