@sexy, I missed like a day or two in my week as well Embarrassed

SN:  I can't figure out how to measure and stretch my hair simultaneously, so my black star is my measuring tool 

@lurking, this is the before and after of my 'trim' (I had to resize the pic to get my hair and star in since she cut so much off!)
It's roughly 2.5 inches between the top of my star to my collarbone.  


Ummm, for real??  You going to just hack my hair off like that?!  Do you know how long it took me to get there?! *Woo sa* and hang upside down...

Inversion progress - before - above collar bone, after: below.  I was able to measure that, and the difference is just under an inch. 
 



I might try doing this twice a month, cause I want my little length back!

update: I started this challenge 8 days ago. If I missed a day, I would do the oil + inversion twice the following day. I started only with coconut oil, then coconut + castor oil and for the past few days I do it with 100% pure coconut oil + 100% castor oil + EVOO. I do the inversion technique sitting down for 3 minutes.

I have been trying for 2 hours to upload those pics Angry, so I am tired of trying to post them, I will just tell you guys the result: my hair grew one inch in one week! I will remain on this challenge!!!

I am now obligated to do this inversion because I joined the Monistat/Sulfa Challenge, and this is part of the regimen. It's a bit extreme there since some folks are inverting for about 15 mins. Missed doing it last night because I spent the night on You Tube

@Benni
Did I read that right 15 minutes? Yikes, the thing is 4 minutes is waaaay more than enough and anything more than that is asking for trouble. There may not be side effects right away but unless you are an experienced yogi--inverting for so long puts pressure on the brain and that action repeated for 7 days is simply not safe. Why do all that when 4 minutes is enough? (I'd be beyond thrilled if you passed that message along) I knew people would go to the extreme with this which is why I was reticent to even share the technique on hair boards.

@sexyandfabulous
Wow, congratulations on one whole damn inch, Lol. Happy it worked out for you and yes uploading pictures on here is a part time job with no benefits. 

@hautsdeseine 
Thanks for checking in, just a few more days to go. 

@Ms_kudos,
She's lucky you didn't chase her around with scissors threatening to give her a "trim" as well LOL Like I said, at least you know a method to get it back quick. It'll be interesting to see how it goes once in the beginning of the month and at the end. I look forward to your little experiment. :-)

Yes lurkingKind it's true. I did it for 10 mins last night. I understand that cautionary warnings are necessary for liability reasons, most people are bending, not doing total body inversion. After doing 10 mins I did not experience any dizziness, blurred vision etc.

No one can hold you responsible, you've done your part. Everyone will do what they want to anyway.
