    This is a fascinating thread. I just wanted to chime in to add that I was a vegetarian for 20 years and quit just a few months ago due to extreme constant fatigue and largely because I am hoping the animal protein and heme iron will help my hair growth. I have way more energy now, I don't look as pale and sickly anymore, I have much less body odor (I used to stink after workouts and no longer do), but I do worry about my karma.

    Scalp massage with aloe juice and peppermint EO and rosemary
    Greenhouse effect with water and extra virgin olive oil (3 hours)
    Invert for four minutes
    Note: I think I'm allergic to most conventional shampoo and conditioners so I stopped using the tresseme conditioner.

    ETA: I wanted to wait until the end of the week to measure but I couldn't resist. So far I've gained 1cm

    I forgot to update you all, but here is my journal and results.

    Day 3
    Scalp massage with aloe juice and peppermint EO and rosemary
    Greenhouse effect with water and extra virgin olive oil (at least an hour)
    Invert for four minutes
    6:40-10:00
    Note: I think I'm allergic to most conventional shampoo and conditioners

    Day 4
    Scalp massage with aloe juice and peppermint EO and rosemary
    Greenhouse effect with water and extra virgin olive oil (at least an hour)
    Invert for four minutes
    4:30-9:00
    Note: Mixture is stronger now that the rosemary has steeped overnight. Tingling sensation has intensified, but not irritating. Not sure if I should take the rosemary sprig out before it get's too strong or just add more aloe juice if/when it gets too strong.

    Day 5
    I think today will be the last day of my inversion experiment. I feel like it isn't doing much anymore as my scalp isn't tingling as much but i haven't decided. I also removed the rosemary sprig leaving a very dark coloured liquid. GHE from 7:30-?

    Day 6
    Note: got my period last night
    GHE 11:30-3:30

    Day 7
    Same. GHE for one hour

    I added the part about my cycle because I know some of you said it altered your growth, I don't think mine did. Through out this challenge I gained .6 inches.

    Wow likelikepenny, you gained .6 inches in a week? That is fantastic!

    How did you make your aloe juice and rosemary mixture? How much of each ingredient did you use? Did you wash it out everyday? When you do the green house effect with water and olive oil do you put it on just the scalp or all the hair? Did you notice any hair fall after the scalp massage?

    Sorry for all the questions, I've been wanting to try something like this, but I always notice a lot of hair fall after the scalp massage, so I might try just applying the ingredients gently and doing the green house effect. Even if I got half what you did in a week, I'd be psyched!

    Haha no problem. I had a small spray bottle that I filled (if I had to guess I'd say it's 75 ml) with aloe vera juice (I got it from walmart, it's 99% pure), and added about five drops of peppermint. I've noticed with EO that it largely depends on the brand since they all have different potencies. I just added until I felt it was strong enough and my scalp tingled lightly.

    The second day, I noticed we had fresh rosemary in our fridge so I decided to add a sprig knowing that it boosts growth and cirulation.

    I decided to leave the ingredients in my hair since it wasn't a oily and it kept my scalp fresh and clean, especially after workouts.

    I only added the water and olive oil to my length to moisturize my hair. I noticed it made my hair really soft and manageable, especially since I have low porosity.

    I used to massage my scalp occasionally and never noticed any added hair fall. Maybe a green tea rinse would help? I also think part of the reason people get so much excess shedding is because they're not doing it correctly. When I massage my scalp I don't just move my fingers around, I grip (?) my scalp lightly and massage in circles so I'm moving my scalp and not just hair around on my scalp, if that makes any sense.

    I usually grow 1/4 inch a week but the boost in growth is definitely welcome! After a .8 trim, I'm not back to where I was and I'm more than happy. If you have any more questions I'd be happy to answer them

    Just skim-read the entire thread - holy wow!! I’ve heard so much about the inversion method. It’s funny because my yoga instructor constantly bangs on about the benefits of inversions, not specifically for hair growth but for stalling the influx of grey hairs as you age, etc.
    so even if you don’t see an increase in hair growth, it’s still really good for your body!! I don’t know much about massaging with oils but even gentle, dry massage is beneficial to your health in general.

    Last time I participated in this thread I was doing inversion method. Maybe I didn't do it often/long enough since I never noticed difference. At the moment I'm doing Monistat to see if I could squeeze out quicker hair growth. It's only been a little over 2 weeks since I started. I also like to massage my scalp regularly. I'm going to start reading this thread, maybe I'll get new ideas...
