growth aid exams update ( I octupled my growth! )

Posted by Yahya at 4:56 PM
It's the end of summer (noo! I start classes tomorrow!) and I have growth updates to share! If you didn't read my first growth aid exams post talking about how I'll be testing growth aids, click here. Here's a little recap, too:  for the past years I've been getting random hair growth spurts and didn't know what to contribute it to. After doing a crazy growth overload challenge and getting 3 inches in 3 months without knowing what to credit, I had decided to test my growth aids and practices and make proper recordings. Hence beginning this growth aid exams sequence.

 I've finally discovered what was increasing my hair growth during the crazy growth overload challenge: the green house effect method. I'm so happy I finally unlocked the secret to my random growth spurts! And it's something as easy as the GHE method.

I have not been paying attention to my planned testing schedule made in the previous post at all, and have completely been doing my own thing. This is also just an update and not the end of growth aid exams, I'm extending it beyond summer.  My goal right now is to thicken my ends rather than grow it out right now, so I've been trimming my straggly ends after each recording.

Here is a list of dates recording when I started what growth aid, the results, and my length after a trimmed.

june 2 - after Japanese straightening I trimmed hair to 25 inches
june 20 - started cayenne pepper oil
july 18 - sadly I saw no extra growth at all with cayenne pepper oil, it seems to work for other girls though
july 19 - started inversion method with about 25 1/2 inches
july 25 - finished inversion method with a thin 26 inches (gained 1-2 cm of growth)
july 26 - started ghe method
august 7 - measured about an extra 1-2 cm of growth, 26 inches 1 cm.
august 26 - measured 27 1/2 to 28 inches, but it grew out very thin so I just clipped off the straggly ends to 27 inches. started ghe & inversion method.
september 3, today - almost measured 29 inches, but the ends grew out straggly again. I trimmed more thoroughly this time and accidentally trimmed to 25 inches 1 cm, but I don't really mind it. especially now that I know the key to growing my hair faster! I'll be starting bamboo tea in conjunction with the ghe method today.

Here are some pictures, sorry that I didn't take a picture for everything.

I'm pretty sure I've said it before, going to say it again, my ends have been growing out thin after being handicapped by a protein overload about a year ago now. It is also possible that these growth practices are only affecting parts of my scalp, but I'm 70 percent sure it's the former reason.

So what exactly is the ghe and inversion method? Learn more here and here:

that's some amazing stuff. I just started the GHE Method yesterday, but the Inversion Method sounds like it might be worth the effort too. I mean, I might as well since i'm at it anyway, right? lol

Hello Yahya!

Great blog and congrats on all that hair growth! :)

After your trials above, what would you say gave you the most growth overall (continuously) and what would you pick for the ultimate faster hair growth aid?

Thank you! :)
