@Benni. Sorry to hear about your hair woes. Sounds like you are on the path to recovery. BSL is nothing to sneeze at so congrats on that accomplishment! I have the dreaded inverted V issue Were it not for that I would have reached my goal ages ago. Every summer I'm chopping about 3 inches off to even things out. My hair will then grow evenly for about 2 months before the sides and outer back edges start running away. Are you relaxed or natural? I'm relaxed and I started texlaxing to help with thickness...I no longer relax bone straight and that has helped tremendously with overall thickness. You'll get there...


@TripleL1967..Yes, my fall out is not as drastic as it was in Aug , but it seems like every 3 yrs I experience something like this. In 2010 I had bald pathces due to fall out.
I have not had a relaxer since 1998 due to a Nigerian stylist tangling my hair so much, I had to actually chop it all off. I have always told stylist how to handle my hair, but they just do not listen. After that I totally ignored my hair, braided it and wore wigs. It grew to waist lenght, then I started flat ironing. I did not know it needed special care, so it started thinning. I wore it out for a while, just wetting it daily, leaving regular conditioner in it, and it did well for quite a while until the fall out of 2010. After struggling with it for a while, I discovered BHM. It never fully recovered. I don't expect to, since Hormonal changes occur with the passage of time

Are you defeating your growth progress by trimming 3 ins off every summer in an attempt to get your hair to grow evenly ?? That is an awfull lot to trim off. Maybe just trimming off the damaged ends would be more beneficial. Get to your goal, then periodically trim small bits off until you get it to even out.

Wishing you ALL THE BEST in your hair growth journey.

It is ALL about us accomplishing our individual goals.

Good Luck

So I've been thinking ....It has been said that exercise is important for increasing hair growth. Exercise increases blood flow, and if done regularly will increase hair growth. Why is inversion limited to 7 days if it accomplishes the same thing   ...Increased blood flow to the head, thus the hair ???

You can't "hang" upside down in front of your man or something? LOL ALOL Also, once a month is recommended because after speaking to about a dozen or so ladies who did it past 1 week I and did not gain any extra growth past the initial first week. Yes, I conducted interviews!



Thanks for replying! Sucks that it won't work on a weekly basis, but glad to know I can repeat once a month to achieve an extra inch.

Yeah, I don't want to explain to him what's up Embarrassed

@Benni, that's an interesting notion... Lurkingkind tried it for two weeks, I'll see if I can find the page...
ETA: Page 16

@sexy, I bend at the waist, that way if he catches me it will just look like I'm stretching Wink

I will do this for 2 more nights. I get too lazy to do it most of the time. I have not gotten any increased growth, but I hope it stimulated new follicles. I will continue to do scalp massages, I don't have to get up for that

@ Benni. I question whether I should cut or not every time. No one sees it but me and hubby. I just can't stand looking at the differences in length caused by that V so I cut off the offending strands and start anew. I will reach my goal eventually as will we all.

1/4 in a week is still good growth.

I don't know why I have such a hard time posting to this board.
